The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
After enduring basic training—and spending more than two decades in the US Army—Gary, a former airborne ranger officer, knew the intricacies of the human body. Nowadays, he applies that knowledge to his work as a licensed massage therapist. He is also a personal trainer, a student in physical therapy, and incorporates elements of these within a massage session if warranted. He works alongside fellow therapist Kasey, who holds an AS degree in therapeutic massage. Together, they knead physiques and alleviates aches with styles ranging from Swedish and deep tissue to reflexology to help improve posture and flexibility while decreasing pain.
Radiant Skin Solutions' experienced body beautifiers eliminate unwanted hair from skin surfaces with specialized laser systems. Laser hair removal offers patients a long-lasting clearing option, helping to eschew the irritation of razor burn, the tediousness of waxing, and the expense of maintaining a fleet of mini bulldozers. The FDA–cleared Radiant hair-reduction technology saturates skin with a filtered, pulsed light beam, targeting follicles with a focused energy that destroys hair-growth cells while leaving other tissues unharmed. Before beginning their laser sessions, clients meet with an experienced Radiant staff member for an informative consultation, friendly game of freeze tag, and complimentary imaging analysis, where a series of photos charts one's skin texture and potential problematic areas.
Southern Exposure's eclectic selection of merchandise embodies both literal and figurative interpretations of the term "bling." Glittering pieces of jewelry by brands such as John Wind and La Hola decorate wrists and earlobes with both modern and vintage accessories. Rhinestoned patterns coat iPhone and iPad cases to personalize personal electronics, and the colorful shapes and designs on loaves of Primal Elements soap bring interior decorating themes into bathroom territory. Patrons can also gild their physical forms with spray-tanning or teeth-whitening treatments at Southern Exposure's in-house beauty salon. The boutique also plays host to events such as tailgate parties and meet and greets with Santa Claus, where children can put in requests or lodge complaints about last year's gifts.
