A new season always has us eager for change, be it a new summer hairstyle, a slick keratin treatment, a lighter hair color with the use of balayage, brighter makeup, or even a healthy, sexy, glowing tan (yes, ours is healthy!)

Here is our list of summertime beauty must-haves for enviable hair, skin and secrets to “how does she look that good?”

Get Glowing

No secret here!  A tan makes you look better, feel sexier, look slimmer and allows for less or no makeup at all!  We have an organic, streak-free, non-sticky, odorless spray tan that looks like you spend a weekend at the beach!  All with not an ounce of harmful sun touching your skin.

Meet Kat from Coco Glow!  Kat is our in-house “glow to” girl for an amazing tan!  The products she uses are organic and natural, contain no oil, are fragrance free, water based and are fast drying with no harsh dyes or chemicals.  You’ll never look “orangey” or feel sticky.

Start summer off with a glow, knowing you’re doing your skin good!

Now that’s enviable!

Lighten Up

Balayage……Also known as hair painting is another way to lighten up those locks for summer instead of the traditional foils you may be used to. If you haven’t tried balayage, maybe it’s time for a bit of a change!?  Talk to your colorist!  If you haven’t ever had any kind of highlights, try a bit of balayage and lighten up this summer!  The amazing results below were done by Natalya, one of our many talented team members!

No More Mascara

Toss the mascara away!  The lash doctor is here!  Okay, she isn’t a lash doctor, but she is the most amazing lash extension pro you will ever know!  Dee Stefanou has become a very wanted woman!  She is in demand every single day she is in (which is 6 to 7 days a week!), but you won’t likely catch a glimpse of her, because she is locked away creating some of the most gorgeous, eye framing, luscious lashes your eyes will ever see!  Enjoy a summer full of no smears or smudges!  Wake up with stunning eyelashes you’ll go “batty” for!  No mascara = life changing beauty!

Toss the Brow Pencil

When Anna is in town you had better call early for your appointment because she is only here a mere 3 to 4 days a month, creating an instantly booked schedule the moment we announce she’s coming in!  Well known and loved for her facials, she also has become known for her Microblading!  Microblading is perfect if you have sparse brows and are tired of filling them in every day with a pencil.  No more runny brows when the weather turns hot and humid!  One appointment to consult with Anna, a second for the procedure ( where tiny brush like strokes with a sterile instrument with dye create semi-permanent tattoo-like hairs that look unbelievably realistic!),  and a third follow up procedure to fine-tune your new brows!  Voila!  Brows everyone will envy!

Nail It

Nails, both hands and toes are on display all summer so why not make sure they look their best? 

Rough, callous feet from the cold, dry winter months need some tender loving care, and our team of pros will have your feet baby soft and ready to show off in those new pair of sandals! 

We use our hands or everything so they need some TLC too!  Schedule weekly manicures to keep cuticles, skin and nails in tip top shape. Try a beautiful Gel Manicure for color and shine that lasts!  Break out of the plain nail color rut this season and go for something new and unexpected like a beautiful marine blue or shimmering lilac!

Summer is the time to go with fun bright colors or beautiful pastels. White is still very hot, and the classic French manicure is always a sure bet!


Summer Skin & De-Stress

You cannot underestimate the wonders of a relaxing massage.  It can take your tied up, knotted muscles that have been tensed from stress and make you feel like a new person!  Stress is bad.  We all know that it is imperative to your health to make time to unwind and let all the tension melt away.  Part of looking beautiful is feeling beautiful.  Stress can affect the way you look, the state of your skin and more, so it is really something very good you are doing for your body. 

On the subject of skin, let’s not forget that the needs of your skin change during the summer so make an appointment for a facial and have one of our estheticians go over a summer skin care routine with you.  We have only the best in skin care with lines like Sothys, SkinCeuticals, and Environ who provide products to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish and protect.

And what could be better than getting together with a friend to get a massage or facial together and than having a healthy spa lunch on us?  It’s a wonderful special that you can book by giving us a call!

Whip Those Brows Into Shape

Eyebrows.  They are more important than you may know!  Changing the shape or fullness of the brow can totally change your face.  We have seen trends go from ultra full brows like Brooke Shields or Cara Delevingne to pencil thin brows throughout the years.  Right now the trend is for a fuller brow,  but neatly maintained.  Eyebrows are so important, as they frame your face, so if you are not quite sure how to pluck them, perhaps a trip to our salon is in order!  Our pros will give you the perfect arch and fullness for your particular face.

We love a brow conditioner such as RevitaBrow.  It contains a blend of scientifically advanced technology and natural botanicals.  This conditioner protects against damage, brittleness, and adds moisture and shine.  To add a bit of color and fill in some sparse spots, RevitBrow Hi Def Tinted Brow Gel is perfect.  It comes in soft brown or dark brown and has soft polymers which help to keep the brows in place!  You can apply multiple applications until your desired brow volume is achieved.  It is also smudge-proof and water resistant, hypoallergenic, dermatologist reviewed and not tested on animals (we like that!).

Have you over-plucked to the point where you have none or are there spaces that need to be filled in?  We offer Microblading for a semi-permanent solution.  Get your brows in shape (no exercising required!) and see just how much the perfect brow makes a difference in your total look!

 

 

Perfect Brows With Microblading

We are so very excited to announce that we now offer microblading in our medical grade spa!  Our licensed Esthetician, Anna, received extensive training and is certified in this amazing procedure which will have you loving those brows once again!

Eyebrows are such an important part of the look of your face and the wrong shape, over-plucking, or complete loss of the brow can have a huge impact on your look.  That is where microblading comes in!   What is microblading?  Read on….

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a technique where colored pigment is manually deposited into the skin with the use of a special hand tool.  This hand tool has a small grouping of needles which penetrate the superficial layers of the dermis, implanting color.  Each hair-like stroke is meticulously stroked on to give the realistic appearance of hair.  It is safe, relatively painless and permanent.

Is it Painful?

No.  We apply a numbing cream and gel prior to the procedure so you will experience only minor discomfort, somewhat like plucking your eyebrows.

Who is a Good Candidate?

This procedure is perfect for anyone who has experienced eyebrow thinning or complete loss from medical reasons such as Cancer or from thinning due to age or over-plucking.

How Long Does it Last?

The pigment is deposited into the skin and is smudge-proof, waterproof and sweat-proof.  Touch ups are recommended once a year.  Best thing is being able to toss that eyebrow pencil out and not to have to worry about smudges or smearing, not to mention the amount of time it will save you in your beauty routine!

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

The procedure is done with the utmost precision with light feather-like hair strokes so the look is completely natural.   This takes from 2+ hours.

After your first appointment we have you come back after 6 weeks so we can see how your skin took to the pigment and we can make any adjustments, refine symmetry and detail.  During this follow up visit we may adjust the color or design.  Our goal is to have you loving your new brows!

How Much Does it Cost?

We recommend that you schedule a free consultation to discuss your individual needs, as prices vary depending on what is involved.

Microblading is a fabulous way to get back the brows you used to have or get the brows you’ve always wanted!  No more eye pencils, powders or gels to fill in brows or draw them on!  Give us a call and schedule your free consultation with Anna at 203-656-5656.
