Aesthetician Linda Smith knows how to help skin recover from environmental toxins and sun exposure and look its natural, radiant self. At Monkey Bizness, she tends to skin with facials, LED therapy, and raindrop therapy. Natural sugaring furnishes gentle hair removal, and the VascuTouch system helps reduce the appearance of spider veins and the skin tags that reveal bodies' original prices.
Susan Hayes can transform appearances with a simple snip of her scissors or stroke of her dye-coated brush. She creates trendy coifs, adds bold color to manes, and improves the health of hair by infusing it with conditioning products. To complement her stunning strand work, clients can receive waxing services, facials, or Shellac manicures.
Stylist Delaney Sinclair invites customers to Salon Bliss, where she tends to heads of hair with salon services. She deftly snips and styles new, eye-catching ’dos, complete with blow-dry services. She also augments heads with bursts of color via partial highlights, full highlights, or full color treatments.
Debbie, an experienced spa savant at Pamela's Nail Boutique and Salon, wields multifarious beauty skills to doll up digits, rejuvenate visages, and freshen face-fringe. A traditional mani-pedi gives succor to digits tired from doing the dishes or jitterbugging across computer keyboards in high heels. Debbie first cleans cuticles, then trims, soaks, and buffs finger- and toenails in preparation for layers or gleaming lacquer. Armed with top-shelf products, she’ll start a personalized facial by cleansing façades, then slather on a custom-made oatmeal, almond, or pomegranate and green-tea mask. Alternatively, clients seeking to renovate hair homes can kick back while Debbie cleanses, sculpts, and styles locks into dome-decorating busts of George Washington.
Master designer and educator Helen Reed heads up the hair services at this AVEDA concept salon. She is supported by a bevy of talented aestheticians, including nail extraordinaire Courtney, who can tag fingertips with natural-looking gel nails that dry under ultraviolet light and are made to withstand medium-intensity games of Tiddlywinks. While hours vary, appointments are available Tuesday through Saturday each week.
The staffers at Cocoa Nail & Beauty Bar always keep a list of “no-no’s” in mind when purchasing polish for the salon: no formaldehyde, no toluene, no dibutyl phthalate. In addition to keeping customers safe from these harmful, unpronounceable words, they ensure a clean environment by wielding one-time-use tools, sterilizing metal pieces with medical-grade machinery, and placing a new liner in their pedicure tubs for each guest. All of these precautionary measures, however, do nothing to get in the way of their ultimate goal of relaxing every single patron. The staff cultivates a welcoming, cozy vibe, even setting out a complimentary cocoa bar so guests can sip on warm cups of silky hot chocolate as they get their nails done, remove unwanted hair, revitalize their skin, or extend their eyelashes.
