It’s not a beauty spa—it’s a beauty lab. Co-owner Julie Michaud first made her name as one of the city’s preeminent eyebrow shapers and makeup artists before opening her own spa. Prettyology, a white-on-white upstairs oasis, reflects her expertise in all the latest technologies, from permanent makeup tattooing to mink eyelash extensions to anti-aging microcurrent facials. And then, of course, the makeup lessons are divine, the sort you’ll easily be able to replicate even as you lament the years spent wearing the wrong foundation.
