Licensed cosmetologist and make-up and nail artist Doreen Matheny has a passion for making her clients look and feel their best, earning a coveted Brides' Choice award from WeddingWire in 2013. Her skill set spans a wide range of cosmetic treatments, from soothing spa mani-pedis and natural hair removal, to wedding day makeup packages and natural-looking sunless tanning.
Speaking of tanning, each of Doreen's UV-free spray tans is a work of art applied by a real-life skilled technician, not an orangey glow obtained by an automated booth or an accidental fall into a vat of molten butterscotch. As a result, customers can expect a natural, glowing bronze customized to their specific skin type and tone.
The hours pile up quickly at cosmetology school. But it’s worth it—when students graduate, they can become members of Upscale Hair & Nail Day Spa. The spa’s beauty pros spend their days transforming visages with freshly mixed hair dye and sharpened scissors. The hairstyles, which range from classic bobs to modern asymmetrical layers, are only a portion of the spa’s offerings. Nail technicians focus on clipping, filing, and buffing fingernails and toenails before covering them in eye-catching polish hues and smiley-face stickers.
Clients receive plenty of unexpected extras with their hair services at Bryana Nichole Salon & Spa. Cuts include hot towels, massaging shampoos, and neck and shoulder massages; color services come with Joico K-Pak hair-repair treatments; and a week's supply of Aquage shampoo and conditioner is included with each special-occasion style. In addition to hair services, the salon and spa waxes off unwanted facial and body fuzz and pampers patrons with hot-stone massages and Dermalogica facials.
Each Images Hair Salon stylist doesn’t just cut hair; they create new styles that befit clients’ personalities. They style professional-looking bobs and blunt bangs, or mix it up with wispy bangs and long layers. And for the more adventurous, the staff will happily dye your hair hot pink or the same color as your skin. Updos are also on the menu for special occasions from proms to weddings to annual dentist appointments.
The staff at About Beauty pamper clients head to toe with FDA-approved medspa treatments as well as hair and nail services. In the hands of skilled techs, lasers revive fading follicles, and whiten stained or yellow teeth. Less high-tech treatments, such as haircuts and coloring, manicures, and pedicures, come via talented stylists with vision and technique.
K-Pak products assist hair owners in achieving high-end, healthy ’dos. Chosen as one of 2010’s Top 10 Hair Products by The View's Bryant Renfroe, the ReconstrRx VaporIron straightens or curls locks while simultaneously infusing them with ReconstRx VaporFuel (3.4 oz. bottle included), a protective elixir that decreases hair breakage, reduces color loss, and minimizes curl reversion—even after a long session of balloon rubs. The VaporIron also includes a step-by-step styling brochure and instructional DVD featuring one of Joico’s head honchos, Damien Carney.
