Dusting your face with cosmetics can help project a professional image more easily than sewing a three-piece suit from business cards. Finesse your façade with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a 75-minute glam session with Stanley Owings, creator of iMpact Cosmetics, at Fuze Salon (a $75 value) on East 7th Street.
Owings coaches clients through color selection and feature accentuation with a skillful touch that has garnered recognition from Gladys and Elevate Lifestyle magazines. Soft sponges coated in iMpact products pamper and powder faces as Mr. Owings creates a personalized look for each countenance, identifying and accentuating key features such as high cheekbones or protruding horns. As color rises in cheeks and pools around lips, the iMpact creator explains each choice, making at-home applications simple and logical to repeat. When the 75-minute session is over, pupils can take newly beautified features home to show off to loved ones or to try to convince a standoffish light pole to drop its hard-to-get façade.
Fuze Salon's sunny lighting ensures that each accentuation looks natural, and chic design, such as hanging glass baubles and a billowing cloth ceiling elevate sensations of style until they turn clouds a lush shade of lavender. Contact the salon to make an appointment and to learn about other health and beauty services.
Four of Fuze Salon's stylists have more than a decade of experience, and Artistic Director Chip Perry has spent more than two decades in the business. Perry spent time as a national performing artist for Redken and specialized in teaching corrective color at the Redken Exchange, so it’s no surprise the salon uses ammonia-free Redken Chromatics dye as its go-to. Like Fievel Mousekewitz, his journey to happiness began with petty theft. His online biography describes how he would commandeer his neighbors' dolls as a child and "spend hours trying to twist the two inches of fiber into different shapes.” Now, he styles brides and men's cuts with equal dexterity, and keeps his hands busy raising two dogs, contributing to the boards of two charitable organizations, and rallying the community around philanthropic drives and walks.
