Helmed by a dynamic duo, Classic Aesthetics combines expertise in skincare and massage therapy to deliver head-to-toe beauty and relaxation treatments. The center rejuvenates wrinkle- or acne-marked visages with more than 20 facial treatments, including microdermabrasion, PCA chemical peels, and face-lifting microcurrent treatments. A resident massage therapist assuages aches and pains with customized bodywork and chases away stress by kneading muscles with fluid hand movements.
Facelogic logisticians use scare tactics such as science and numbers to counteract the stress and lack of complexion clarity that can impede your ability to steer vehicles with your face. The friendly aestheticians at Facelogic Spa will gaze upon your visage to analyze your skin type and customize your facial treatment to meet your skin’s individual needs. The Glo Modified Jessner Facial awakens slumbering skin through a 60-minute chemical peel reducing the appearance of fine lines, superficial scar tissue, and sun damage, while tightening and lifting faces to decelerate your skin’s aging engines. In addition to the facial routine, a professional makeup artist will provide a GloMinerals makeup lesson/application, putting a blush on even the most Gollumy skin. Once your visage is restored to its original softness and youthful glow, an artful eyebrow and lip waxing will manicure furry mouthgates and create elegant arches to frame your revitalized look.
The board-certified clinicians at Laser Aesthetics buff rough body coverings with rapid and reliable microdermabrasion therapy to dispel signs of aging, stress, and sun damage. A gentle, noninvasive spray of microscopically abrasive crystals bombards facial façades, flensing away loitering layers of dead cells and cleansing the supple new surfaces that shine through. Taking only about 15 minutes, the treatment helps even skin tone and texture, hydrates dry spots, diminishes pores, and begins to vanquish vascular discolorations such as rosacea. Freshly cleared of wrinkles, blemishes, and lodged-in hockey pucks, revitalized visages feel slight to no discomfort, display minimal redness, and require little to no recovery time.
H. Marie Massage Therapy's owner, licensed and insured massage therapist Hope Carter, helps her clients heal through transformative massages. Drawing on her training from Birmingham School of Massage, she soothes achy muscles with her signature bodywork. Guests may request hot-stone or Swedish massages to promote relaxation or sideline lower-layer tension with firmer trigger-point techniques.
Though her passion for glamour goes all the way back to her early childhood, it wasn?t until Jeanice Bouvier Davis leapt into Manhattan?s Robert Fiance Hair Academy that she began to realize her true obsession. After graduating with honors, Davis went on to train with industry leaders such as Aveda and Paul Mitchell?groups that allowed her to build a solid understanding of how to properly serve a multicultural clientele. Armed with a varied set of skills, she eventually took another bold leap by opening Hair Cafe in 2004. Situated directly across from the Eastern Market Metro station, the salon gives Jeanice and her diverse team of male and female stylists the chance to focus on a variety of high-end services, from artful cuts and curls to relaxers and keratin treatments.
Jim Ostrosky, erstwhile fashion consultant for the local Fox affiliate and fashion writer for the Birmingham News, now brings his eye for texture and color to bear on the manes of clients at his intimate home salon. More than three decades in the industry inform his oversight of a team of stylists who wield organic products from Aveda instead of threatening hair into obedience with vats of liquid nitrogen. As they craft new 'dos, the stylists employ advanced techniques such as halo brick and paneling to create highlights or keratin smoothing treatments to banish frizz. In addition to snipping locks into classic coiffures, the professionals delve into new styles and trends, such as fusion and micro link hair extensions.
