Con’s Organic Spa owner Con Ciecko isn't just an expert in the beauty industry. She's also a reiki master and a medical tattoo technician. These specialties, along with her education and training at Michigan and California institutes, have prepared her to execute services that both beautify and relax her clients. Besides kneading muscles with several massage modalities, she cleanses skin with organic facials, bronzes limbs with airbrush tanning, and administers makeup applications for weddings or black-tie viewings of TV weddings. Joined by a skilled staff that includes her daughter Kiya, a massage therapist and nail technician, Ciecko infuses her new spa confines with a welcoming and personable vibe as she helps her clients develop their own signature looks.
After working at a string of laser and plastic surgery clinics, medical aesthetician Mya Campbell found herself missing the personal touch of a studio-style practice. She then founded Beauty Regime with the idea that a smaller staff could take the time to get to know the unique needs of each client while building a solid rapport. Mya still relies on her medical background as she renews visages with a full range of chemical peels, from superficial peels that treat minor blemishes to deep skin peels that treat scarring. Her beauty regimens also include a few twists: Vitamin C and papaya bolster facials to maximize fortifying benefits, and medical mani-pedis add exfoliation with hydrabrasion to buff away sunspots or callouses caused by nervously pacing on hot coals.
Wrinkles shrink away in fear and sun damage disappears into the shadows as Lifetime Skin Care Center's technicians administer a plethora of advanced, natural-based skincare services. For more than 17 years, the staffers have performed laser procedures ranging from chemical peels to microdermabrasions, which can soften lines and wrinkles and make skin as clear as a pet?s driving record. They also further beautify bodies with permanent-makeup application, Botox injections, and laser hair removal.
Instead of sitting in a traditional salon chair, aligned in a row with several others, Salon Kristen's clients settle into a square-shaped white chair in front of detached, individual stations scattered throughout the open floor plan. The team can beautify bodies from head to toe with a variety of services including haircuts and colors, waxing treatments, facials, and mani-pedis. Patrons can even schedule girls’ nights out and princess parties to enjoy the salon experience with friends.
Prime Salon's stylists pretty heads by skillfully wielding shears and pampering hair with products from Pureology, Lisap, and Tigi. Fingers begin the 60- to 90-minute restyle by guiding blades over locks, shaping layers and exorcising dead ends so they stop haunting brunch. Expert colorists change up shades with all-over color or add partial highlights to subtly pop certain strands. A technician smooths in the Moroccanoil treatment, treating scalps to a relaxing massage as the substance hydrates frizz and mends damage, leaving manes soft and shiny, like a kitten rolling in glitter. Clients undergo tress revivification amid glowing gray-and-silver photons that boomerang off of tall mirrors in front of each brown, cushioned salon chair.
