Helmed by Bena B. Won, a registered nurse and acupuncturist who blends Eastern and Western beauty practices, Sunrise Alternative Medical Clinic and its sister practice, Sunrise MedSpa, help patrons increase health and achieve individual cosmetic goals. The clinic’s diverse service menu runs the gamut from weight-loss programs to IV nutrition, with acupuncture treatments and chinese herbal medicines available to reroute off-balance energies or treat underlying causes of nagging discomfort. On the med-spa side, laser treatments from Cutera, facials, and injectables including Botox, Radiesse, and Juvéderm keep bodies looking as youthful as a mannequin’s undying sense of wonder.
Certified lash stylist and aesthetician Vera is known for the magic she does to transform ordinary lashes into powerful, attractive winks. She built that reputation not only with her loyal clients at Alonsay Salon, but also by working with people in front of the camera in the film and TV industries. That dedication to perfecting her craft is something she also has in common with the rest of the expert crew at Alonsay. At the open and airy salon, warm wood tones and live plants set the tone as certified stylists provide on-trend cuts and color using Goldwell and KMS products. Along with hair services, clients also have access to full-body waxing, Brazilian blowouts, and facials performed by certified professionals.
It goes without saying that a trip to the salon should be relaxing and devoid of scheduling nightmares. That’s why Blue Velvet Hair Salon's stylists stay late one night of the week, extending their schedules to include after-hours appointments. Regardless of whether they’re working in the morning or late evening, these stylists make sure to listen to their clients before drawing on continuing education to cut hair according to the latest trends. The staff also offers waxing treatments, spa facials, and makeup for weddings. When in need of inspiration, the stylists may take a peek at the salon’s walls, which are covered with work by local artists and the obsessive scribblings of local mystics.
Stationed within the stress-free confines of Glow Skincare, aesthetician Ashley helps her clients achieve a radiance all their own with microdermabrasion treatments, enzyme masks, and other facials that work to illuminate dull complexions. When she isn’t infusing skin with elastin molecules or brushing cheeks with an exfoliating lemongrass cleanser, Ashley swipes away unwanted hair on the face and body with strips of warm wax. Her 100% organic airbrush-tanning solution adds rich color to freshly cleansed skin without the risks of sitting in the sun or taking a dip in a vat of scalding hot fudge.
Licensed aesthetician and makeup artist Kasey Hersh curates a menu of skin-revamping treatments in her eponymous salon, Glow skincare by Kasey. Wielding an arsenal of naturally formulated beauty products, Kasey and her team create radiant complexions with a variety of fruit-filled facials, peels, and hydrodermabrasion or microdermabrasion treatments. After faces are glowing brighter than a Maglite attached to a car battery, the aesthetic team beautifies the rest of the body with services such as skin-clearing back facials or custom organic spray tans.
GoodSkin's lead aesthetician, Carol Robinson, prides herself on cultivating a tranquil atmosphere for her clients and their normally skittish skin. Relaxed skin, after all, is easier to resurface and more easily persuaded to remember what it meant to be young. Guided by the skillful, charismatic hands of GoodSkin's trained Zambonists, your skin will be gently resurfaced as an LED light simultaneously soothes inflammation and promotes firming collagen growth. This newly unearthed diamond-clear skin will then be pampered with a cherry-bark shea-butter massage and a vitamin-enriched oxygen mist. The concluding cranberry infusion completes the revitalizing Thanksgiving feast for faces.
