It's a scientific fact: applying makeup is a time-consuming drag. Equipped with modern technology and an artist's eye for detail, the team at?Permanent Secrets eliminates the need for those lengthy primping routines by applying permanent cosmetics?on lips, brows, and eyelids that compliment existing features. As a certified permanent makeup artist, Larissa Percy uses feathering, shading, and simulated hair strokes to seamlessly incorporate the permanent makeup, eliminating the need for daily applications of lipstick, eyeliner, or well-placed mustard stains.?Whether adding a beauty mark or defining lip lines, Larissa always takes her time and ensures clients are as comfortable as possible during the procedure, following up with helpful after-care instructions and free touchup sessions if necessary.
Permanent makeup isn't the only star of the show here, though. Permanent Secrets also indulges clients with an assortment of traditional spa services, including hydrating facials and specialized waxing services that effortlessly strip away unwanted hairs from sensitive skin. The staff even offers synthetic silk eyelash extensions, which they glue to existing lashes for a more lush and dramatic look.
Whether guests are looking for a new hairstyle, perfectly painted nails, or a glowing complexion, Envogue Salon & Spa can help. Its stylists craft coifs with precision cuts and transform hair with beautiful L'Or?al Professionel and Inoa color, and nail techs pamper hands and feet with luxurious mani-pedis. Beauty transformations don't end with haircare and nailcare. The spa also offers facials, waxes, and threadings, plus airbrush tans and Couleur Caramel makeup applications. In addition, permanent makeup keeps morning routines simple and stops pillowcases from badmouthing errant mascara.

Julia, a skincare specialist at Skin by Choice, was drawn to her profession through altruistic desires. "I felt that I [could] help people feel good about themselves," she says, "and [could] give them the utmost confidence in life." She works toward these goals by performing a slew of non-surgical beautifying services such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and facial waxing. She also calls upon technologies to treat the signs of aging, using radio frequency waves to tighten sagging facial skin or using ultrasonic vibrations to minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
Though each of her treatments target different issues, they create transformations without the need for surgery or down time, which allows clients to immediately return to their normal routines, unlike joining a cult.
Victoria Ruben believes beauty shouldn’t be temporary. After founding her permanent-makeup business 20 years ago in Paris, she decided to further her aesthetic mission by opening a cosmetology and beauty school to share her refined technique with others. Today, Victoria combines her expertise with the latest tattooing equipment to fine-tune faces in her Florida studio. Her precise yet painterly touches of color can simulate all the hallmarks of a professional makeup application, from defining brows to subtly shading lips to drawing distinguished monocles.
At Studio Luxe, skilled hands perform head-to-toe cosmetic transformations. A stylist can accentuate natural hair with full highlights or a straightening treatment or add length and volume by attaching extensions with tape, micro links, or heartwarming group bonding exercises. The multitalented staff also offers permanent or traditional makeup, mani-pedis, and bridal beauty services.
Instead of offering quick beauty pick-me-ups, the staff at Premier Day Spa takes the long view?in this day and age, people are living longer than ever, which means that anti-aging skincare is more essential than it's ever been. To that end, the spa calls on imported skincare formulas from Guinot-Paris in facial treatments that take a proactive approach to halting the signs of aging rather than making up for them by wearing pigtails constantly. One such service is the Hydradermie Lift, which uses galvanic current to exercise facial muscles and help rejuvenate sagging features. Of course, Premier Day Spa focuses on more than just aesthetic results?clients can release tension and center their minds with more than a dozen massage styles that range from classic Swedish strokes to Asian specialties such as shiatsu and reflexology. The spa experts also perform detoxifying body treatments, refine digits with mani-pedis, and enhance faces with lash extensions and permanent makeup. With this atmosphere centered on relaxation, the spa does not permit children to accompany adults during their visits.
