GiGi introduces two waxes containing high concentrations of vitamins and antioxidants and creating a healthy looking, relaxing aromatherapy experience for clients.

"Pair the wide range of crèmes, shimmers, iridescents, pearls, neons, glitters, glass-fl ecked and metallics with a service like our swirl technique to achieve endless possibilities for customizing a client's visit."
