Renew Salon & Skin Care's Shanna Lynn bedecks lackluster lashes with Shavasana extensions. Initial eyelash installation takes one–two hours, during which Shanna secures single strand semipermanent Shavasana extensions to feeble fringes, hair by hair. The results are longer, thicker eye trimmings, giving you the confidence necessary to wink at strangers and unleashed dogs. After 48 hours, the freshly lashed can frost the extensions with mascara. A refill, which lasts less than 60 minutes, is recommended within two–three weeks.
A diverse staff of hair specialists and an aesthetician helps About U Salon beautify bodies with meticulous attention. Many staff members have decades of experience in the industry, which they use to clear skin with specialized facials and waxing sessions, as well as add depth to hair with highlights that mimic thin rivulets of rain on the solitary window of life. All services are performed with high-end products from brands such as Paul Mitchell, Mantra, and Joico.
The secret to long, healthy-looking hair may just be inside Creation's A New You Hair and Nail Gallery. Master stylist RaeJean specializes in extensions and healthy hair-growth plans and starts each service with a scalp and hair analysis to help clients optimize and enhance their natural strands. From there, she can smooth wayward waves with a shea-butter relaxer or add instant length with virgin Indian remy hair—one of her most-popular services. Available in black and dark brown, the hair comes in lengths of 12, 14, 18, and 20 inches and can be styled with everyday heating tools such as rollers, flat irons, or tiny handheld steamrollers. Aside from hair-addition services, RaeJean also enhances facial features with eyebrow shaping and coloring or eyelash extensions and helps complexions look as radiant as possible with makeup services and special treatments for dry skin.
Kindal Farwick can transform dull hairdos into fashion-forward styles with nothing more than a pair of shears. While that trick is impressive enough on its own, she also takes things a step further, enhancing shine with highlights or all-over color treatments for both men and women. Yet, despite her talent and love for everyday salon work, Kindal’s real passion lies in specialty hair and makeup design. Whether she’s designing for weddings, runway shoots, or other special events, she can custom-create just about any look, whether it’s a polished up-do or bouncy curls arranged so strands fall in just the right place. She completes hair masterpieces with brow waxes and flawless airbrush-makeup applications. Clients who fall in love with their dolled-up eyes and lips can come back later for a makeup lesson, picking Kindal’s brain for tips on re-creating the look.
The House of Brows may specialize in precision eyebrow waxing and threading, but its beauty and spa services, which include lash extensions, facials, body wraps, and massages, set the company apart. Aestheticians customize hair-removal sessions by consulting with clients to determine which method suits their hair or skin type. After deciding between threading or waxing, clients recline as aestheticians groom, shape, or completely efface hair patches. When the service concludes, technicians give clients after-wax instructions to console the skin of its losses. Treatments take place on overstuffed recliners in a vibrant bittersweet-colored studio.
When NaTasha Barnes's massage skills outgrew her circle of friends and family, she knew it was time to turn her passion into a career. She received her associate's degree in applied science for massage therapy and then went on to study beauty at Aveda Fredrics Institute, where she learned the art of waxing, tinting, and braiding hair with one finger. Now as a licensed managing aesthetician and massage therapist, NaTasha offers a variety of indulgent services out of her own Tranquil Moments Day Spa. She performs relaxing one-hour massages and nixes fuzz from arms, upper lips, and glass eyeballs with a personal hair-removal session.
