Nails grow at a rate of about one centimeter every hundred days, which means they require regular maintenance aside from an understanding of the metric system. Out of Textures salon, highly trained nail technician Donna Ackels expertly cares for out-of-control claws with deft nail-shaping techniques and colorful embellishments. While relaxed in her comfortable salon chair, clients can choose from an array of prismatic polishes to give their fingernails or toenails a fresh look. Those looking to revamp their appearance further can also linger in the shop for a hair treatment such as a cut, straightening, or coloring.
Lindsay Le puts training at Seattle's Permanent Cosmetics School, over 10 years of permanent makeup experience, and a steady hand to use to beautify faces and enhance features. At Permanent Make-Up & Nail Land, which she has owned for over 14 years, she uses brand-new supplies to maintain sanitation during each permanent-makeup application, and topical anesthetics numb flesh before Le deposits pigments into the skin. The process can even out discolored complexions, enhance eyes and eyebrows, or increase the thickness of lips to leave them beautiful.
A lot of customization goes into Sunrise Salon's spray tans. First, their techs choose a personalized blend of tanning agents based on their clients' skin types. They then apply the natural spray using an airbrush, ensuring an even bronze. Tanning options also include traditional UV beds. To cover their newly bronzed clients' other aesthetic needs, the beauty emporium also hosts a relaxing spa and a salon where stylists create trendy hairstyles for both men and women.
