"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who’s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that’s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance and leaving only a thin landing strip or functional tarmac in its wake. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.
In ancient Persia, threading was more than a beauty ritual?it was a rite of passage. Beautifiers would thread a bride?s entire face before she walked down the aisle, and give girls similar treatments to signal their transitions to womanhood. Today, Fabulous Eyebrow Threading?s staff members enlist the historically significant practice to accentuate the faces of their clients. They snag and remove entire lines of eyebrow or lip hair with one swift tug, making threading more precise but less painful than tweezing or poking each hair until it is so annoyed that it uproots itself and leaves. They can also use soft wax on faces and bodies if patrons prefer it, and can embellish or refresh newly groomed visages with lash extensions and facials.
If you call Laser & Skin Care Center of Nevada, a laser nurse will answer the phone, but not just to say hello. With just a description of your skin’s needs, he or she can prescribe the proper skincare treatment, quote a price, and answer any lingering questions you may have. These consultations, which can also be conducted in person, help fulfill the center’s mission that was set when it opened in 2004: to help patients achieve their optimal physical appearance and boost their self-esteem. Their treatments range from laser facelifts to teeth whitening to medical-grade microdermabrasions, and all of the nurses are extensively trained to man each type of laser housed in the office or on their secret moon base.

Although she's an expert hairstylist, Krissy Schreiner plies many of her beautifying skills below the hairline. She sweeps away unwanted hair with twists of cotton thread and waxing services, and she primps nails with mani-pedis that she can match to the color of your favorite Lucky Charms marshmallow. She completes beauty overhauls with professional makeup applications to complement chic haircuts or ombre color services. Krissy owns this extensive skill due to her more than five years of experience—three of which she spent learning techniques in Dubai and the Philippines.
Sometimes clients at Modern Goddezz Salon know exactly what kind of hairstyle they want, and sometimes they're at a loss. Either way, the team of skilled stylists evaluate facial shapes, hair texture, and skin tone during free consultations before performing any of their signature haircuts or color services. Clients can also revamp their skin, with aestheticians performing cleansing facials or decorating it with makeup or henna tattoos. While they do that, guests are welcome to nosh snacks, imbibe beer and wine, or simply count how many times they can blink in one minute.
