With surprising ingredients such as pure oxygen or paprika, the cunning aestheticians at Lilla Skin and Body Care renew weathered epidermal surfaces during a full array of spa-centric services. At the helm of this savvy team are Lilla Schottner, an alum of Beauty Institute in Budapest, and Sydnia, a licensed aesthetician with more than 10 years in the beauty industry. The duo specializes specifically in skin upkeep, yet their treatments don’t stop at the face—they can also soothe the body with exfoliating wraps and massage, or artisans can bronze physiques with spray tans or a coat of butterscotch pudding.
eShave founder Danielle Malka first made inroads into the shaving business when she created a successful program to educate barbers in the UK. As the barbers' trade tips trickled down to consumers, her renown grew, and in 1996, she founded eShave to enhance the shaving experience through elegant razors, kits, and shaving creams devoid of the porcupine quills often found in competitors' products. Danielle still designs eShave's hand-sculpted, aesthetically unique razors, badger brushes, and shave stands, many of which have been featured in dozens of local and national health and lifestyle magazines.
At eShave's retail outlets, trained trimmers specialize in transforming masculine mugs from bushy to groomed with their signature barber services. Using the company's own products, its signature shaves begin with a relaxing hot-towel preparation and facial oil massage to open up the pores, followed by a hot lather to moisten and prepare skin for a close, comfortable shave or clever escape from pursuers. After coolly slicing bristles with a straight razor, a barber neatly wipes away all remaining evidence of his work and provides an aftershave moisturizer to prevent irritation and soothe nude jaws.
The artists at Signature Shave Salon wield razors instead of paintbrushes, sculpt sideburns instead of clay, and turn out handlebar or Van Dyke ‘staches instead of still lifes. To cater to both low- and high-maintenance customers the barbers offer three levels of shaves—regular for a quick job, signature for in-depth treatment with conditioner and heated shaving cream, and royal for deposed kings who now must shave among the commoners.
