Classical Concepts Salon & Spa
When Christine Goodness opened the original Classical Concepts Salon & Spa in 1995, the 300-square-foot salon had just three styling stations. Today, though her business has expanded, she seeks to continue the connection with nature that inspired her to go into business in the first place. Her pair of Aveda concept salons was mentioned in Salon Today in an article on environmentally friendly beauty. “Our salon was designed by a green architect and we have energy-efficient appliances and green building materials,” she told the magazine.
At both locations, Goodness's staff of stylists launches the happy purr of busy shears and the subtle fragrances of Aveda products. Inside private-treatment rooms, aestheticians spread layers of natural-plant waxes infused with essential oils to whisk away unwanted facial and body hair and apply soothing facials packed with botanical ingredients and minerals. To combat stress from posing as twin investment bankers, massage therapists ease muscle tension in clients with hot-stone, reflexology, and chakra-balancing massage techniques. After emerging from treatments designed to lull them into relaxation, clients browse the rows of Aveda products available to recreate treatments at home. Christine works among the potted bamboo and meditating statues, considering further eco-friendly measures and arranging free services for patients undergoing treatment at The Saratoga Radiation Oncology Center.
