Even as a little girl, Arlene Gray knew she wanted to be a hairstylist, and she has spent the last 27 years fulfilling that dream. After training in New York City, she moved south, eventually opening A's Hair Salon. Not only does she continue to treat hair to her expert styling services—including colorings, cuts, keratin treatments, relaxers, and extensions—but she also shares her knowledge with others as a cosmetology instructor and volunteer stylist for cancer-related charities.
The team at Forever Trim Body Sculpting Center performs noninvasive body-contouring and face-lift procedures under the guidance of Dr. Michael Rodriguez. Drawing on a wealth of technology and leadership from Rodriguez, a fellow in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the center’s technicians reshape the body and tighten the skin. With a Zerona LipoLaser system, they emulsify stubborn fat on the waist, hips, and thighs, making it easier to wear skinny jeans or slip into a toaster while playing hide-and-seek. The Ulthera machine, on the other hand, performs a nonsurgical face-lift without significant pain or downtime.
Licensed aestheticians at Lana Gray International command advanced technology in their successful campaign to rejuvenate skin. Aestheticians get to know faces and backs with an introductory cleanse, allowing them to customize a treatment using Image skincare products and send them spot-on birthday presents. Faces and backs revel in gentle steam before aestheticians perform an extraction to free up pores and tone skin. Next, customers receive a facial that gently detaches dead skin cells from their living counterparts with a thorough exfoliation before a mask seals in nutrients and creates wrestling personas for both the face and back. Alternately, clients can select the microdermabrasion and mini facial, where technicians guide a small device over the face and exfoliate away dead skin cells with a stream of crystal dust. Newly sculpted visages receive a 30-minute facial that cycles through a cleanse, final exfoliation, and moisturizing treatment, like the three acts of a Shakespearean play.
