Several years ago, aesthetician Carlotta Clark noticed that the best beauty products had the highest price tags. Frustrated by the fact that extreme prices marginalized many consumers, Clark opened Skinplicity LaNeese to provide affordable and effective beauty treatments. Before performing any service, Clark evaluates each client's skin and develops a personalized skincare program that may include dermaplaning, TCA peels, or facials. Then, Clark elucidates the services and expected outcomes, all while answering questions and telling knock-knock jokes. During her signature detoxifying facial, Carlotta harnesses the powers of enzymes and galvanic currents to simultaneously resurface skin and regenerate cells.
On the Skinny Wrap & Spa runs on the veteran know-how of two eccentric ladies. Owner Karen—former star of VH1's Mob Wives—teams up with Melina—a licensed massage therapist and Army National Guard soldier—to beautify clients with a range of services, from infrared body wraps to hydrotherapy sessions to massage therapy rooted in Swedish, deep-tissue, and LaStone techniques. Other services include facials and photofacials, seaweed body wraps, solar body bronzing, and packages designed to kick stress to the curb so it can befriend stray cats.
At Wink Beauty, there's only one type of service: eyelash extensions. This singular approach is due to the owner's obsession with lashes. After years of experimenting with formulas and techniques, she finally found the right combination to unlock perfect lashes. Specialists in her studio spend about two hours adhering synthetic fibers individually to each lash, with the aim of creating a natural look. The curved, faux strands come in varying lengths and thickness, and should be replenished every 2–3 weeks or 5,000th game of peekaboo.
Mirabella Hair Design houses seasoned scissor wielders who sculpt 'dos in a brightly lit style sanctuary accented by sleek, hardwood floors and cushy leather treatment chairs. The service menu encompasses essential haircare via vitamin-rich Paul Mitchell products, plush manicures and pedicures, and facial waxing to de-fuzz lips and give melted birthday candles a sense of purpose. A salon manager oversees each client's experience, and walk-ins are welcome.
The certified laser technicians at OneBode Total Health make use of noninvasive technology to retouch the body. They rely on the lasers to treat winkles, scars, stretch marks, and fat, leaving their patients brimming with confidence. Exercise and meal plans help bodies to stay fit between laser treatments. Additionally, they combat aging with services including Botox and fillers.
