Salon Bellissimo honors the timelessness of true beauty by decorating its spa like an Ancient Roman bath with concrete urns, great columns, and a statue of Hebe, the goddess of beauty. And this reverence for history is fitting, since owner Cecilia Sammons has been in the industry for more than 30 years herself. Today, she and her staff of stylists, nail technicians, and makeup artists transform clients using modern haircare products from L’Oréal and Moroccanoil and nail polish scraped directly off Botticelli's The Birth of Venus.
For the better part of a decade, Zaynab Alkaabi has removed unwanted facial hair through threading?an ancient practice which involves deftly twisting thread and running it across the face, thus removing targeted hair at the root. Threading, which can be advantageous for patrons with sensitive skin, allows Alkaabi to expertly shape brows and evict hair from the face without the use of harsh chemicals.
Serving Dearborn Heights for 30 years, Bruno Salon bolsters beauty by tending to hair, skin, nails, and makeup needs.

In spacious private treatment rooms, they also groom nails and remove unwanted hair from the face, underarms, and near the nether regions.

A vast lineup of pedicures, manicures, and soothing treatments awaits upper and lower appendages, and Robin welcomes appointment setters from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday.
Nestled within Breathe Pilates and Fitness Studio, Katnandu Aesthetics transforms exteriors with everything from manicures to waxing. At the helm is skilled aesthetician Rebecca Belisle, who draws on more than 12 years of experience as she embellishes nails with bright gel and acrylic overlays or renews facades with skin-smoothing microdermabrasion. Whether doling out services in her studio or travelling to customers' homes, Rebecca enjoys meeting new people every day and strives to set them at ease as she deftly applies mascara and shadow to help faces stand out in wedding photos or department-store surveillance tapes.
Handz @ Work's dedicated nail technicians doll-up hands and feet with luxurious mani-pedi services, ranging from acrylics and extensions to aromatherapy soaks, in a clean, hygienic studio. A 30-minute spa manicure softens paws in a warm soak before a cuticle trim and nail filing even out jagged edges and excessively sharp talons. A relaxing massage unwinds tensions tangled around upper limbs and a paraffin treatment cocoons extremities in a warm, instant-drying wax that is peeled away to reveal soft skin and butterfly wings attached to the knuckles.
