After studying oncology aesthetics at The Skincare Therapy Institute, licensed aesthetician Katrina Lee opened Brow Beater Designs where she schedules traditional spa services, such as waxes and peels. Katrina also helps revitalize the skin of patients who've undergone cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and hormone therapy. And as an eyelash-extension technician and makeup artist, Katrina can add pizzazz to freshly rejuvenated faces.
Narcissus Salon's practiced stylists, all of whom are Redken and Paul Mitchell Master Specialists, strive to personalize each client's mane makeover, taking into account hair texture, facial structure, growth patterns, appearance, and lifestyle. A consultation helps formulate desirable 'dos before a conditioning treatment infuses heads with more moisture than a rain cloud after a sauna session. Staff members then dry and style tresses with a toasty blowout. Alternatively, clients can send scissors chasing after frayed ends in addition to the conditioning service. Otherwise, a cut and color treatment enliven locks with a new hue, which can be spread all over, streaked into partial highlights, or thrown onto hair in the style of Jackson Pollack to achieve a classic, arty look.
It is not uncommon to breathe in the aroma of coffee or sweet fruits inside Natural Nails. These fragrances are found in the passion fruit and guava scrubs, pomegranate lotions, and cappuccino masques used to soften skin during pedicures. Feet relax inside a special foot sauna before being coated in premium nail polish. During manicures, orange- and lime-infused serums exfoliate and hydrate skin, and heated stones relax tired hands. The beauty experts also tend to faces with custom facials and waxing services that remove excess fuzz from third eyebrows.
La Bella Salon owner Michele Daniels's handpicked staff of stylists wields Paul Mitchell products to snip and style coifs in a sunlit, hardwood-floored space. Wielding skills honed at monthly training sessions, they'll bond or sew in extensions, weave braids, and highlight hair with bold color as clients recline in sleek chrome salon chairs. Alternatively, aestheticians wax fuzz from faces or revivify visages with antioxidant-packed chocolate treatments, tightening collagen masks, and deep-cleansing serums during a medley of facials.
When master stylist Christie Kramer decided to open a hair salon in 1998, her standards for the hair professionals she would to hire were high. Having trained in Europe and the US, she brought with her a wide perspective on hair care and selected her staff based on their specific talents. Today, the stylists at Christie's Salon Inc. are most known for their hair coloring skills, from multi-dimensional hues to rich reds and drastic color corrections. Clients can also opt for a full array of hair care services, including Japanese straightening, extensions, and Brazilian blowouts. On the spa side of things, an aesthetician creates soothing moments during facials, massages or nail care.
Studio K owners Kathy and Cliff Hughes have assembled an auspicious roster of licensed staff members who provide a comprehensive list of haircare services. Quality products such as Morrocanoil, Redken, and Matrix aid trained scissorhands to produce lustrous results, inducing jealousy from freshly waxed cars and slickly waxed mustaches. Women can don a range of styles from summery bobs to floor-length evening 'dos, and men traditionally opt for short, polished pompadours. After locks are adjusted to the optimal length, blow dryers gently cement styles without the harsh bronzing techniques of yesteryear.
