Light flickers against a clear gemstone chandelier in the contemporary front lounge of Hello Beautiful!, where staffers with more than 50 years of collective experience greet guests with friendly smiles and kind salutations. As music swirls around the eclectic pampering haven, clients follow the hardwood floors into a violet-hued salon filled with stylists sprucing up ‘dos with master haircuts and vibrant colorings. Among delicate drapes and leather treatment chairs, attentive aestheticians keep visages beaming brightly with tailored facials or permanent cosmetics, which help ensure makeup won't run while swimming, showering, or going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Staffers further indulge guests with complimentary beverages and light snacks.
Just Beauty's technicians refurbish worn-down nails and cheeks with a menu of mani-pedis that draw on OPI polishes and facials that extract pore-clogging impurities. The team softens digits with paraffin wax and outfits nails with long-lasting Shellac polish to shine them up before a party and strengthen them before a trip to a scratch-and-sniff culinary museum. Microdermabrasion facial treatments are also on hand to slough off dead skin cells and reveal the smooth surface beneath, and waxing services free the body of oppressive tufts.
