The philosophy at Blank Canvas is that anyone can be an artist with the right materials and a little encouragement. To prove this philosophy, the studio hosts weekly sessions where artists of all experience levels come together to create their own works of art based on an existing painting. Likewise, Blank Canvas encourages kids as young as pre-kindergarten and up to high-school age to follow their artistic impulses by attending classes and camps instead of drawing on the walls or painting the kitchen the wrong shade of mauve.
Paul Manoogian’s 35 years of professional hairstyling experience are built upon a strong foundation—he trained in the school of groundbreaking hairstylist Vidal Sassoon. Today he works with men and women, consulting with them to determine a cut that works with both their face and lifestyle. He also employs Redken products when coloring hair or making batches of fake blood.
The team at Fira Hair & Skin works hard to imbue their salon-spa with a warm, friendly feel that helps guests relax during treatments that run the gamut from hairstyling and nail care to makeup applications and waxing. The team also continually looks for new technology and products with which to spoil their clients, and keep from being labeled prehistoric or obsolete like the Flintstones' warthog garbage disposal. In addition, they stock products from Paul Mitchell, Redken, Wella, and Pureology, which are available for purchase.
The beauty specialists at ReNu Bodyworks Salon and Spa keep an eye on the calendar as they bundle services into spa packages for special occasions. Their attention to detail also applies to everyday skincare needs. Specialized facials target specific skin issues—an amino mask helps clear acne, and glycolic acid exfoliates skin to diminish sun damage sustained by frequent tanners or ex-astronauts. In addition to traditional massage modalities, the therapists offer a four-handed massage. Aestheticians personalize a suite of top-shelf products for each individual treatment, from waxing body hair to airbrushing skin or grooming nails.
For 15 years, the stylists at Simbiotica Salon have been welcoming clients into their space for image overhauls. Abiding by the definition of the word ?simbiotica,? which means a mutually beneficial relationship between two people, the stylists forge relationships with their clients by offering them a cup of cappuccino and crafting haircuts, colors, and styles that best suit the client?s features and personal style goals. In addition to hair services, mani-pedis, and facials, the salon offers laser hair-regeneration treatments, which encourage natural hair growth for clients experiencing hair loss.
Outside The Spa Jeannie, in Luciano's Salon, sunlight bounces off mirrored walls, illuminating the salon with a bright glow. But inside the spa's private treatment room, dim lights soothe the senses. Skilled aesthetician Jean Bishop further calms patrons as she cleanses and hydrates skin during European facials and unties knots with flowing Swedish-massage strokes that use varying pressures. Jean also shapes and trims fingernails and toenails before applying several careful swipes of bright polish.
