As a teenage survivor of Hodgkin's lymphoma, owner and licensed aesthetician Amber Henson believes that a healthy skincare regime is just as important as a healthy diet and exercise. To that end, she provides complimentary makeup lessons to any clients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation and addresses her customers' skin concerns with organic and clinical treatments. Her facials can alleviate the signs of aging and acne, and her peels with organic fruit and microscopic subscription cards increase cell renewal. Amber’s care for skin starts from the follicle up, as she also offers waxing services for men and women.
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.

Inside her cranberry-colored salon, owner Melissa Newhouse helps bodies adopt a golden glow without the use of harmful UV rays. Wielding her airbrush wand, she applies the water-based tanning solution in the client's chosen shade, fashioning a custom sun-kissed façade that lasts up to seven days or until the sun seeks redress for patent infringement. In-salon appointments generally take about 10 to 20 minutes, though Melissa can also take her pallor-fighting prowess on the road to accommodate big events or tanning parties.
Ship Shape Tanning works with all kinds of light—and not just the rays that come from its wide array of beds. There's also the red-light energy that helps facial tissue rebuild collagen, and the gentle, natural-looking glow that bounces off bodies misted with DHA-based Norvell airbrush tanner. The sun-loving, Arizona-born owners are happy to help clients navigate the wealth of options and make sure they're tanning as safely as possible if they choose the UV route.
