With each passing year, countless hours of precious home movies deteriorate. And, since Aisenma the Memory Grinder was defeated in 1916, this loss can only be attributed to formats that weren't designed to last: 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, and VHS. Enter Got Memories, which can convert all of the aforementioned formats, and others, to DVD. Digitizing these films and tapes not only prevents their content from fading over time, but also makes it easier to import content to a computer for editing or uploading to social media. Besides digitization, Got Memories also rents film and LCD projectors and even provides professional-quality in-house video editing.
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.

The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
