Sam Laurenz Salon's menu of head-to-toe beauty services leaves just enough room for treatments dedicated to overall wellness and mental nurturing. Stylists lead the charge to reinvigorate images, crafting precision cuts or re-texturizing hair with billowy wave perms or smooth-as-silk straightening treatments. Away from the shears and shampoos, clients gather in private rooms to meet one-on-one with personal counselors or gather in group meetings to participate in the salon's Weigh of Life program––a weight-loss approach that encourages members to forget yo-yo diets in favor of portion control and the breaking of bad habits. Bad habits can also be banished with help from the salon's in-house hypnotist, who aims to help clients stop smoking, overcome anxiety, or overcome a crippling fear of hypnotists.
The Fit Factory aims to combine the act of getting in shape with a bit a personal entertainment, teaching dance steps during Zumba, self-defense in boxfit, and self-expression through pole fitness. Instructors hold classes up to seven days a week. Outside of regularly scheduled sessions, they hold private pole parties and antigravity hammock parties for groups of ladies looking to enjoy a healthy night out or celebrate a holiday or special occasion.
Dr. Elizabeth Roya Emami and the aestheticians at Natural Beauty Derma Spa provide minimally invasive solutions to dermal imperfections and extra inches. Within this elegant Japanese-inspired med-spa, they use chemical peels, injections, and laser treatments to help their clients achieve smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. Dr. Roya fixes up unsightly scars and performs outpatient liposuction at a nearby accredited ambulatory surgical facility, where she has access to state-of-the-art equipment.
Betty Lynn practices art on a surface far more delicate than a canvas: the human face. With a steady hand, she gently applies makeup in intricate designs that befit each client, from brides wanting a rosy glow to models looking to make a fashion statement with dramatic eyeliners and lashes. For a more subtle effect, her makeup applications can also simply accentuate the client's facial features in a flattering way.
Betty Lynn's artistic skills aren't just limited to makeup applications. At birthday parties, she thrills kids by painting their faces with their favorite designs, such as a Spiderman mask or the cover of a math textbook. She also travels to private residences to paint customized murals in kitchens and nurseries.
