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.

Under the watchful eye of a seasoned professional, each soon-to-be beautician performs a variety of services on visitors to earn the certification of a license massage therapist or the gilded epaulettes of an aesthetician. At both the Hollywood and Miami Beach locations, clients can help students achieve their goals by simply indulging in rejuvenating facials, stylish cuts and colors, and relaxing rubdowns.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.

At Eye Candy Lash Lounge, owner Veronica and her cast of certified eyelash extension specialists—better known as the Eye Candy Team—take pride in their high levels of procedure personalization from the moment a client arrives. First, visits at the lounge begin with a “get to know you” questionnaire so that the crew can properly ready treatment rooms for each client's visit. Upon entering their treatment space, a client may find their favorite music playing, or perhaps an audio book of the dictionary, and sheets scented with a preferred aromatherapeutic scent.
The lounge offers four unique private rooms, such as the Lash & Dash basic suite, where techs specialize in applying semi-permanent lash extensions. Spa extras give the other three rooms their own perks, such as a simultaneous mani-pedi, reflexology massage, or body waxing, at the same time lashes are applied. Though lash extensions are the studio’s specialty, customers can also stop in for a la carte beauty services, including teeth-whitening and weight-loss wraps, which are just like a giant hug that makes you appear more attractive.
