Sacred Lox Hair Boutique’s licensed hairstylists continually lengthen their list of mastered services. They’ve most recently added for-purchase hairpieces and extensions to the salon’s boutique area, which doubles as the entryway to a salon where they cut, color, and straighten hair. The team of experienced hands behind these services includes a licensed braid-and-natural-hair cosmetologist who specializes in advanced weaving techniques. Her skills go on full display during the salon’s weaving classes, which help students learn to adhere different types of hair to scalps or jack-o-lanterns suffering from gourd-pattern baldness.
Celebrity makeup artist, Erica Wilson is the personal makeup artist to Yolanda Adams. She also works with celebrities such as CeCe Winans, Tamela Mann, and Kim Burrell and as the key makeup artist for BET's Sunday Best. But celebrity status doesn’t faze Erica. She treats all her clients like royalty as she beautifies them with eyelash extensions, brow shaping, and makeup applications using her own line of cosmetics, which includes mini lip glosses, mineral foundations, and powder bronzer.
Guests pass by the ArtIz Gallery Lounge’s walls adorned with the work of local artists before entering The Art Spa, where they benefit from the expertise of licensed aesthetician Ms. Cherie. In addition to three types of facials, she and her team expertly remove unwanted hair as painlessly as possible during more than 25 waxing treatments. To beautify blinks, she applies eyelash extensions using both flares and individual lashes.

A licensed stylist at Drake's Place/Salon World, she works with textured, relaxed, and natural hair, offering everything from braids and locs to relaxers, twists, and sew-in weaves. Known for her friendly personality and intricately detailed braids and locs, she makes sure her clients are as happy in the styling chair as they are when they walk out the door.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nia Banks and her team of trained beautifiers offer an eclectic array of appearance-boosting services. Surgical options to fulfill patients’ Christmas wishes include tummy tucks, liposuction, and rhinoplasty. For a lighter touch, nonsurgical treatments include injections of Botox—the wrinkle-fading serum that tricks muscles into thinking they are bears that must fall into deep hibernation for months.
