Licensed aesthetician Christina Marie has tracked the trends of the skincare industry for more than 20 years, watching techniques that work become refined and perfected while those that don’t become obsolete. Her enthusiasm for up-to-date practices is the driving force behind her spa; it's also what enables her to best correct dermal issues ranging from acne to sagging skin. Before crafting facials from such ingredients as flax, vitamin C, and Bioelements skin products, Christina conducts a personalized skin reading, in which she and the client discuss possible treatment options and nicknames for the client’s freckles.
Sleek hardwood floors and a spacious interior greet clients at Westmont's Hair Garden Salon, where stylists clip, color, style, and deep-condition head threads with precision. Calibrating 'dos according to current trends as well as each client's lifestyle, mane masters meticulously shape locks for everyday looks or special events. In addition to coiffure care, professional staff rolls out nail services in the form of french manicures and paraffin-wax treatment with manicures and beautify countenances with makeup applications for a night out on the town or stuffed-animal nuptials.
The specialists at Tranquil Passage Spa blend eastern traditions, advanced cosmetic technologies, and French skincare in an environment designed to relax as it beautifies. Crystal therapy, sound therapy, and meditation soothe busy brains, while meditation and Ayurveda programs designed to connect the mind and body form a foundation for holistic health. Tranquil Passage stocks Parisian skincare products by Guinot, which customers can enjoy during facials or purchase and take home to share with the Gérard Depardieu clone they’re growing in the basement.
Brow threading may be the raison d'être of the aestheticians at Eyebrow Expressions, but the team also ably branches out to de-fuzzing other parts of the body, including services for legs, face, and intimate areas. Inside the salon, which is located within Meijer, the aestheticians can also remove hair with threading, an ancient Indian technique that uses a long, wound cotton thread to zip hair away in precise lines without irritating the skin. Because the process is so gentle, the team can thread lips, chins, necks, and delicate vestigial wings.
Salon Ruelle is a urban setting in the suburbs. You will experience a very laid back environment were each stylist runs their own business. The walls are covered in graffiti and we will be listening to Bob Marley, Depeche Mode or maybe Adelle. No receptionist, you will always be dealing directly with your stylist.
