At Blush Permanent Makeup, Michele Konitzer pursues a personal passion for highlighting each client’s natural beauty. Her steady hands amplify facial features with the gentle SofTap method, a skill she also shows off while working as a trainer for the company. After she dots the epidermis with the ultradurable pigment, bolder lashes can better fan the flames of desire, and shaded brows can alternate between arching elegantly and compulsively communicating the "M" in Morse code. Michele also flexes her varied cosmetic expertise as she performs teeth-whitening treatments and hangs full, flirty faux lashes over both eyelids in 40 minutes.
Spirit Salon's upscale spa environment houses high-end products, a skilled staff, and a recently remolded pedicure room. A team of stylists cultivates fine coifs during hair services. After administering indulgent manicures and pedicures, nail technicians dollop fingers with CND nail polish or the residual ketchup that never seems to fully come out of those packets. Like a traveling pro-sports team, the salon staff can also take to the road with mobile services. The salon professionals can be booked for weddings, bachelorette parties, or baby showers. At these events, they cut hair, do nails, and even perform facials.
In Xanadu Salon and Spa's elegantly appointed private treatment rooms, talented aestheticians pamper bodies inside and out with head-to-toe pulchritude services. Insides feel refreshed after colon hydrotherapy and ionic footbaths, both of which pull toxins from the body to leave patrons feeling lighter than bubbles full of helium. Fa?ades get new looks after facials and body wraps, which utilize a carefully curated selection of sea salts, mineral-rich black mud, and Oxygen Botanicals skincare products, as well as hair coiffing and massages.
Fanciful portraits, a teal chandelier, and a wall filled with the word beautiful in romance languages greet guests at Saving Face by Amanda. This beauty salon prides itself on bringing its clients' inner beauty to the surface with a variety of facial treatments. Start with a cleansing facial and peel to remove layers of dirt and dead skin. Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning treatments can unearth youthful skin surfaces, while eyelash extensions make your eyes pop without the need for mascara. Once your face is looking its best, try a waxing session to remove any unwanted hair from your torso or limbs.
Kelly Muzall, registered nurse and founder of Estudio de Piel, surrounds herself with beauty professionals who continually pursue ongoing education. Their credentials, like every DeLorean ever made, reach into the past and future?licensed massage therapist Kevin Barry has more than a quarter century of experience in the field, but has broadened his skill set to include deep-water massage and spiritual medicine. Physician assistant Katie O?Brien held director-level positions at clinics across the heartland before planting roots at Estudio de Piel. She also founded a consulting business that trains physicians and nurses to administer injectables. Though Barry and O?Brien represent only two of several professionals, they embody the level of expertise at Estudio de Piel. Each time someone clinches a new certification, the spa adds another service. Since opening, the spa has added microdermabrasions, chemical peels, sclerotherapy, and laser treatments to its menu.
The array of eyelash extension options at Lash Factor Studio Eyes, Brows & Face can be a little overwhelming?they include several different packages as well as add-ons such as mink lashes?which is why it's a good thing specialists hold consultations before each service. During this time, they help clients select the proper length and hue from the studio's collection of faux lashes, which are delicately curled with a tapered tip to mimic natural lashes. The certified aestheticians then individually adhere each extension to the eyelid?s original fringe as clients chat them up or kick back with their iPods for quick snoozes. All faux strands cling to the pre-existing lashes for the duration of the natural lashes' growth cycle (up to two months) and, being water-resistant, they can endure swimming, crying, and backstroking through a pool of tears.
