The cosmetology licenses and certifications pile up at The Studio at Rockwall Spa and Makeup Artistry, where owner Kim Morrow Johnson and her experienced staff beautify visitors during a slew of cosmetic services. Johnson's AIIC-certified master technician and instructor status shows as she applies permanent makeup and eyelash extensions. She and her team of licensed aestheticians augment their work—which includes makeup, waxing, airbrush tanning, and facial treatments—with products from Dermalogica and MUD.
For more than 20 years, AIIC-certified master technician Kim Morrow has worked to beautify her clients using her knowledge and experience in permanent-makeup and eyelash-extension application. At The Studio at Rockwall Spa, she helms a team of beauty professionals that enhances features with permanent makeup and elongates lashes with extensions that add thickness without the need for mascara or chunky peanut butter. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair, clearing the way for a custom airbrush tan.
Since Luz B graduated from the International Beauty College in 1988, she has lost no time studying the art and practice of beauty. After working in spas and parlors in and around Dallas for years, she eventually decided to take the plunge and open Luz B Day Spa to pamper guests her way. Her portfolio includes seven kinds of facials, some tailored to certain skin types, others designed for skin of a certain age. Clients can relax under masks while Luz takes care of cuticles and polishes nail with dollops of smooth color. She even maintains her own custom line of skincare products, including a vitamin C cream, a glycolic cleanser, and a special clay mask to wear when you don’t feel like putting on your face.
Med-spa lasers are the tools of the trade at Jonna's Skintology. With treatments from such vendors as VelaShape and Zerona, aestheticians and laser technicians zap unwanted body hair and help tame wrinkles and cellulite. Laser skin tightening, for example, aims to stimulate collagen and elastin production for skin that's smoother and more taut, while IPL facials resurface complexions. Laser hair removal offers an alternative to shaving or volunteering to be a knife-thrower's assistant; for many, it provides longer-lasting results than waxing.
Tan About Town Texas’s airbrush artists add dazzle to dermises with custom spray tans. Carting their mobile booths and tanning equipment to patrons, the team enriches complexions with DHA. This safe, sugar-based ingredient brings skin to a sultry glow without incurring the burns that immediately follow lying in the sun or heckling a professional comedian. To augment the tans, the team supplies Bronzed Envy tanning products that protect and enrich tans with coffee extracts, vitamins, and botanicals.
