At age 13, Jacqueline designed a science-fair project focused on age management, having developed a fascination for skincare by watching her mother and grandmother go through their daily beauty regimens. As Jacqueline grew up, she took that passion and became a licensed master aesthetician, opening Jacqueline Jase Face & Body Center in 2009. The center is named in part for her mother and grandmother—Jane and Rose—who Jacqueline names as the two most influential women in her life. Today, Jacqueline fights aging and nourishes skin with facials and herbal wraps, swaddling clients in natural and organic products from brands such as Bioelements. She also applies Nufree Hair Removal to legs and arms to remove unwanted hair, and fastens NovaLash extensions to eyelids to create longer, denser lashes. Realizing a connection between stress and skin deterioration, Jacqueline became a licensed massage therapist in 2010 and now relieves stress and chronic aches with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities.
Standup booths, lay-down beds, and VersaSpa tanning equipment line the private treatment rooms at TanFabulous, yielding many pathways to achieving a richer shade of skin. With four tiers of UV-tanning rays and three levels of spray-tanning mist to choose from, customers can pinpoint the exact hue of bronze they desire. The higher tiers of UV beds feature upgrades to enhance your tanning experience; among these, SunBreeze triple air-conditioning systems keep temperatures cool, aromatherapy infusions soothe the senses, and facial boosters send rays to hard-to-reach spots on the face and neck. The salon’s automated VersaSpa tanning booths spritz bodies with layers of bronzing solutions and drying jets of air. The DHA-based solutions couple with anti-aging moisturizers to ensure that skin retains the color of a deep-fried onion ring without its crunchy texture.
Salon 101's stylists are already well-versed in the art hair designs, style, and colors. But that doesn't stop them from taking their skills to the next level with continuing education classes each month, where they also stay updated on the latest techniques and trends. This, combined with Salon 101's family-friendly, welcoming vibe, ensures that every guest who sits in a styling chair will feel at ease. The salon offers everything from cuts and styles to keratin treatments and real hair extensions that attach with keratin bonds for ease on the hair and scalp. Along with hair care, Salon 101 offers soothing aqua massages where powerful jets pulsate warm water from the toes to neck, and back again, and as a bonus, this magic happens all while you are fully clothed and dry.
Under the direction of J. Christian Rea, the stylists at Salon 647 snip, color, and arrange hair into trendy ‘dos. They perform services with high-quality Goldwell and Moroccanoil products, using the latter to nourish parched or damaged strands. Treatments take place amid the chic decor of moss-green walls and mirrors draped with zebra-print panels.
