With more than a decade in the beauty business, Ms. Rae has settled into a trio of specialties, beautifying clients with lash extensions, brow maintenance, and hair services. In the salon, she’s often found undertaking complete hair transformations—in addition to simple cut-and-color services, she can also tame texture with relaxers or volumize manes with invisible-weave extensions. No matter the treatment, clients can often customize their experience, selecting conditioning treatments designed to strengthen dry or damaged locks or calm scalps itchy from wearing a crown of mosquitoes.
As an aesthetician, Ms. Rae shapes brows with the help of three distinct tools: precise tweezers, professional-grade wax, or arch-sculpting razors. When she’s not apprehending excess fuzz, she adds fringe to lids with lash extension services. Flare extensions in five intermixable lengths nestle between natural lashes to thicken overall lash lines, and single lashes with 2-3 extensions per clump add maximum volume.
Epic Tan & Body Zone augments and alters the skin with a variety of body services. Tanning packages allow guests to change their epidermal tones, whereas their tattoo artists can redecorate a small corner of skin. The shop can help shave off inches with detoxifying body wraps, and their massage services robe skin in a gentle assault of soft strokes. The team also welcomes guests to splurge on provisions such as lotion, eyewear, and jewelry, or opt for a body piercing to anger your overprotective uncle, who is an airport metal detector.
At Tim Jon Salon, stylists recharge their client’s looks with a bevvy of salon and day spa services. Haircuts kickstart beautifying makeovers that are complemented by color treatments and Brazilian Blowouts from products by Kerastase and Shu Uemura. In the day spa, technicians perform waxing and deluxe mani-pedis as well as eyelash extensions. The stylists also offer formal up-dos and bridal consultations to help brides prepare for their big day.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
Dr. Dawn Batiz Blagg and the Loraine Shinks Rejuvenate Spa team of aestheticians believe that people are their most beautiful when they feel relaxed and pampered. To that end, they create a soothing spa atmosphere where they offer microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and massages as well as deep-cleansing facials and Botox injections. Alternately, spa-goers can relax during a luxurious face, hand, and foot massage before getting a Brazilian bikini wax and a natural-looking spray tan, or get a seaweed wrap to help reduce the look of cellulite, while reminding clients of their summer vacations to the shore.
For 23 years, Adrienne—owner of Exotic Hair Designs by Adrienne—has trimmed, extended, and shaved hair as both a stylist and a barber.
