Where in the desert can you find a salon to pamper your skin, hair and nails, a spa to keep your whole body in shape and a shop for spa and skin care products, all offering prices at less than half of those of competitive spas, salons and shops?
Consider these work-ups and prices: hair-cut for only $8, trim $3: coloring that starts at $31; waxes from eye brows to lips to leg, underarm, bikini from $6…Yuko Japanese hair straightening system starting at $150…one can go on and on.
So where’s the catch? Who performs these services? What kind of products do they use?
It’s no miracle, really. Considering that it’s the International School of Beauty. And doing the job with expertise and chutzpah are the estheticians-in-the-making. Supervised by licensed estheticians, professionals who are the mentors of these extremely talented students.
It’s pure delight to be in the vibrant place, abuzz with life, bursting with energy as teachers and learners stride around in trendy black garbs and hairdos. As they master the art and apply this mastery to their equally enthusiastic clients. What adds to the professionalism and excellence of the school is, from the get-go the school’s own skin care and beauty products are used by students, professional skin care and beauty products not available commercially.. No ordinary store-marketed products for their highly-esteemed clients.
