Licensed dermatologist and aesthetician Nellie Novillo knows that trust is a necessary part of any beauty procedure. She therefore cultivates it with each of her clients, ensuring that they're comfortable before she touches up their eyelids, brows, and lips with permanent makeup. Given her 20 years of experience, she can confidently match different skin tones to their most flattering makeup colors, and guarantee that her work will never smudge or come off after a particularly long shower. In fact, her reputation for gorgeous results attracts fellow aestheticians to classes where she teaches her techniques.

As the hair-replacement specialist at J. Turner Salon & Spa, Kareemah Johnson wields her dexterous hands to thicken strands with extensions that she places in row by row. Despite her work in adding hair, though, she also removes it with an all-natural sugaring method, which can minimize the irritation that sometimes comes from other hair-removal tools like wax or velcro.
Barber tools are not toys. But even as a child, Dennis Marquez couldn’t resist playing with his father's set of barber tools in the attic, as he told Wellington the Magazine in 2008. This early admiration led Dennis to train at many prestigious hair schools including Vidal Sassoon in London. More than 35 years ago, Dennis and his wife, Kristina, opened the first Pizzazz Hair Design. The venture succeeded: their business has grown to include five separate salons, many of which have gained praise from NBC 5. Each salon’s stylists, armed with Redken and GKhair products, consult with men, women, teens, and children before revamping their manes with cuts, foil highlights, and hair-smoothing treatments. At the adjoining spas in three of the five salons, technicians paint nails with OPI polishes and cleanse skin with botanical-based Pevonia products.
To stay up to date on current hair trends, each salon's beauticians attend continuing-education courses and dissolve fashion magazines older than three months in jars of barbicide. The Pizzazz team also gives back to the community by donating a portion of salon proceeds to the Adopt-A-Family organization.
Formerly known for her work with Dr. Nisenbaun at Island Dermatology, licensed aesthetician and cosmetologist JoAnn Gersh Francis now dispenses her expertise from the comfort of her own practice. Joined by medical director Dr. Robin Sykes of Jupiter Plastic Surgery and injectables and laser expert Carol Ann Johnsen, JoAnn repairs troubled skin using the latest generation of laser technologies. Her Palomar Icon machine delivers over 350 joules of IPL energy to multiple layers of skin, easing everything from superficial lines and wrinkles to vascular lesions and acne scars. In addition to laser technologies, a full assortment of injectables and fillers such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvéderm restore skin's youthful plumpness. As a licensed micropigmentation expert, JoAnn can also enhance newly renovated features with permanent makeup applications. Whether she's adding eternal eyeliner or camouflaging inconvenient scars, JoAnn approaches each case with an expertise that earned her accolades from local media outlets including WPTV and the Palm Beach Daily News.
With more than 17 of years of experience performing cosmetic and medically corrective permanent-makeup services, Ashley Swain effortlessly marries a keen aesthetic sensibility with technical proficiency. When she isn't training professionals or leading seminars on permanent makeup for such organizations as the Dermatological Society and the Parkinson's Foundation, she performs each procedure personally. Her palette includes an extensive array of pigments, which allows her to create natural-looking eyebrows, distinguished beauty marks, and fully defined liplines. In addition to virtually eliminating the need for daily makeup applications, her treatments can also help hide the appearance of surgical scars or pockmarks left by ill-advised molten-lava facials.
Instead of remaining in one location, Ashley lends her services to three of the area's permanent-makeup facilities, each of which boasts a full staff as well as an arsenal of medical-grade digital technology.
