An aesthetician gently scrubs a mixture of Dead Sea salts and moisturizing oil over a client's skin, revealing younger and fresher layers of cells; in another room, a massage therapist places heated stones onto tense muscles, dispersing the stress they've been harboring for months. Scenarios such as these are common at Evene Day Spa, where the staff specializes in both relaxation and beautifying treatments. The spa's menu also includes European facials which allot one hour to eliminate dirt and exfoliate to clear the pores. In addition to improving skin condition, the spa's aestheticians keep faces looking polished with permanent cosmetics for the eyes, eyebrows, or lips, leaving time in the mornings for more important endeavors, such as baking homemade Lucky Charms.
Licensed aesthetician and Aveda graduate Angela Clark partners an ingrained passion for skincare with something a little more tangible: high-quality products and high-tech equipment. She incorporates Aveda and Image Skincare products into her facials, which deep-clean skin in anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes. She also brandishes the NuFace Galvanic System to fight aging skin, sending microcurrents deep into skin to tone, tighten, and aid in the absorption of products.
The stylists and aestheticians at Olivia Todd Salon & Spa stay current with modern trends in hair- and skincare, but still know when to draw on traditional techniques. Their precise styling methods come in handy when transforming looks for an important board meeting or maintaining religious dressings such as sheitels. Regardless of envisioned aesthetics, hair tamers draw from an arsenal of Paul Mitchell and Moroccanoil products to ensure ample hair health so that completed 'dos glow as radiantly as a young lover covered in lightning bugs. The spa and medi-spa branches are equally devoted to revealing natural beauty with Éminence Organic Skin Care products that accompany hydrating treatments, exfoliating peels, facials, and massages.
When Rachel sees how happy her clients get after she finishes crafting their new 'dos, she knows she’s chosen the right career. It’s that happiness that motivates her creative expression, whether she is smoothing out troublesome tresses with Keratin Complex or fashioning natural-looking blonds and brunettes using odorless Schwarzkopf Professional Essensity colors, which are free of ammonia and silicones. She also uses Moroccanoil and Paul Mitchell products to imbue hair with fortifying nutrients that keep hair shiny and protected from split-end divorce court.
A spa can be a welcome respite from a busy day, but so can home, which is why Labella Mobile Nail Spa’s nail technicians travel to their clients’ residences to perform mobile services. Once there, they clean, buff, and paint fingernails and toenails during private appointments or spa parties. They even offer reflexology services, applying pressure to points on the hands and feet that correspond with different body areas. This practice helps to improve circulation and ease anxiety caused by learning that your pinky toe affects your eyesight.
The term “nail artist” can be taken literally when applied to Kalea, who draws on nearly 10 years of experience to create a miniature masterpiece on the tip of every finger she touches. Her designs include glossy monochromes, elaborate mosaics of rhinestones and seed beads, and painstakingly detailed maps of local bus lines. No matter which of her artworks they choose, all of the clients at Kalea Nails get the same friendly treatment. This goes for first-time visitors as well as loyal celebrities such as Big Boi and Erica Dixon.
