Inside DeLuxe Salon's retro-chic beauty shop, owner Gregory Moncur? and his team of beauty experts accent clients' signature styles with hair, makeup, and skin services. A professional makeup artist and licensed aesthetician, Moncur? applies his 18 years of experience in the beauty industry to services including eyelash extensions. Kevin Murphy products strengthen and moisturize hair during haircut and color services, further enhancing the appeal of manes recently gelled into an upright exclamation point. Deep-cleansing facials reveal rejuvenated mugs with exfoliating scrubs and toners, and Moncur? performs expert sculpting jobs on shaggy eyebrows, turning unruly tufts of brow hair into well-defined shapes.
Stylist Shawnna Tajyar of Zen Lashess is dedicated to making her clients? lashes look lusher. To that end, she attaches single strands of Xtreme Lashes synthetic extensions to their individual eyelashes using medical-grade adhesive. The resulting fringe can both emphasize eyes and swat away the sandman during boring office meetings. Clients pick from three levels of extensions: up to 50, 80, or 100 lashes per eye. The menu of services also includes full-body waxing, organic spray tanning, and makeup applications.
Glow's name is fitting: inside the chic spa, chandeliers softly illuminate flowing curtains, hardwood floors, and walls the color of a freshly picked marshmallow. The bright decor is matched by the radiance coaxed out of complexions by a team of skilled aestheticians, including brow and lash expert Jamie Lynn. She specializes in the application of eyelash extensions, gently adhering strands to add volume to every blink. Her services fit neatly in with the rest of the spa's treatments, which include exfoliating peels and skin-smoothing waxes.
Now a celebrity makeup artist, Amanda Jacobellis started out by studying art and fashion design. This member of the television, film, and print industries often appears on channels such as E! and Fox. She's also been a guest on Access Hollywood, a show that explores the lives of famous people by looking at their keychains. But before she rubbed elbows with the stars, she pioneered a safer eyelash extension technique known as LAshX. Her product includes the first oil- and glycol-free cleanser and formaldehyde-free adhesive. In 2007, she opened Makeup Mandy where her lash extension system enhances beauty treatments from makeup applications to up-dos and waxing.
