Aesthetics Etc. owner Ann Marie Ray strives to transform standard beauty services into relaxing sensory experiences. Her staff incorporates the flame-softened wax of collagen-infused candles into select massages, relies on brand-name gloProfessional products, and encourages clients to slip into cozy slippers and robes. Ann Marie's signature service is permanent-makeup application though, which is useful both for helping chemotherapy patients to aesthetically recover from the loss of their eyebrows or simply shortening a client’s daily face-prepping routine.
Before pursuing a career in makeup and skincare, Ann Marie spent seven years working a standard 9-to-5 job in finance. After years of persuasion and encouragement from her mother, a professional aesthetician, she left the corporate world and became a certified permanent-cosmetics specialist in 2002. Today, mother and daughter operate separate but noncompeting businesses, referring clients to one another for specific treatments or a second opinion on who left the milk out that one time in 1991.
Internationally trained, locally focused hair stylists
Our team believes in continuous improvement. From London to Milan, we attend annual training and hair shows to keep up with what’s hot and what’s not. Staying up on the latest trends ensures that your color and cut will be in style. Welcome to Rainbow Room Salon.
The trained stylists at Rometrics Salon-Spa stay loyal to Aveda products as they shear tresses in the classic styles the salon has perfected throughout its two-decade life. They also add depth with highlights or administer perms for curls that clients can clip off to use as a slinky whenever a toddler threatens them. Rometrics’s aestheticians also cleave to Aveda products as they renew visages with facials, or employ LED light therapy to combat signs of aging. The nail technicians’ weapon of choice is Gelish or OPI polish, the bright colors of which enliven fingertips after paraffin treatments nourish skin. Clients hoping to complete their makeovers can also shade their skin with a spray tan, get their brows tinted, and evict leg hair with waxing. Newly offered by Rometrics, non-invasive body-contouring treatments target fat and smooth skin.
Those more interested in relaxation and inner harmony can stretch out amid the beige hues and wall sconces of a private massage room while a massage therapist kneads aching muscles and soothes their senses with aromatherapy. Those creamy hues also outfit the skincare room, and the styling area’s sage green and bright, cheery blue create a more energetic atmosphere for follicular transformations.
Destiny Derma Spa & Salon's aestheticians dote on patron appearances with a line of top-shelf skincare products that nourish and moisturize. Certified organic or paraben-free serums by Eminence, Ilike, Image, Hydropeptide, Being True Cosmetics, Pure Illumination and Puramed are slathered gingerly across skinscapes to imbue skin with youthful radiance like the frosting on Peter Pan's birthday cake. Specialists bolster serum results by wielding an array of skin-smoothing devices, such as their diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand or the Jet Peel device, which flushes away dull dead cells with supersonic jets of water and air.
