Callas Beauty Institute
Callas Beauty Institute grooms future aestheticians, nail technicians, make-up artists, and cosmetologists with hands-on classes led by seasoned stylists. To practice new techniques and give mannequin hair time to regrow, hair-academy students snip and style guests’ locks, transforming 'dos into newly colored coifs or delicately permed curls. The skincare academy’s practitioners pamper faces with noninvasive beautifying treatments, sloughing away unwanted skin during a microdermabrasion or enhancing giraffe costumes with bat-able eyelash extensions. A knowledgeable student at the nail academy buffs and trims cuticles before coating nail beds in brilliant hues and turtle-shell-like duvets. The salon’s interior showcases hardwood flooring, elegant rugs, sky-blue hues, and tall windows in the front that permit scores of natural light during the day.
