Superfluous hair removal provides a longer lasting & more effective method of hair removal than shaving, bleaching, or using depilatory creams.Eyebrows impact the face. A bushy eyebrow can make eyes look smaller and closed and in cases of extremely bushy eyebrows, too masculine. There is an art to arching eyebrows. You must take into consideration the client's bone structure and the desired shape.In order to perform wax services accurately, hair length should be 1/8” or 3-4 weeks hair growth. This is normally around 2 weeks post-shaving growth for most ladies or 4-6 weeks post waxing.

Benefits of waxing
Will help keep skin looking naturally smooth Eliminates stubble growth Waxing lasts 4-6 weeks - compare that to shaving which can last just a day or two Hairs become sparse over time Hairs become finer and weaker Slows down hair growth.

For Any Type of  Waxing
If you use Retin A products or take an oral antibiotic for your complexion such as Acutane, you cannot do this service. It makes the skin too sensitive and can cause the skin to rip off with the wax which causes scabbing. Not a pretty picture!

Lash and Brow Tint

Have you ever heard of tinting your lashes? How about perming your lashes? Well I do both. Tinting your lashes is great for red heads, blondes with light eyelashes, or lashes that are lighter at the tips. It gets them really dark and can make them look longer. It is also great in the summer if you like to spend a lot of time in the water and do not want to worry about eye make-up, but want to look better. Also if you have allergies and rub your eyes a lot and you don't like to wear mascara because of that, you might consider this service. Wake up looking great! Tint is good for light colored brows and lashes, accents the eyes. Great for men too.Last 4-6 weeks.

Lash Perm
They say that prolonged use of mechanical eyelash curlers deteriorate the eyelashes. Eyelash perming is much safer to the lashes. The solution is made with natural plant ingredients and is very gentle and harmless to the eyes.   

Eyelash Perming is an innovative way to keep lashes curled opening and enlarging the eyes without the use of eyelash curlers. It offers a younger looking appearance particularly for those whose eyelids are beginning to droop. It uses gentle perming solution, slim flexible rollers, and is very safe.  Lashes remain curled all day and night, in and out of water. In fact, they stay curled for 2-3 months,the lifespan of your  eyelash.
