B'yond Style Hair Studio's team of stylists personalize each of their services, whether prepping brides-to-be with formal updos or clearing away unwanted hair with waxing services. They spend time consulting with clients before performing any of their hair, nail, or skin services, learning about their clients' lifestyle and personal tastes. After designer cuts, the team further tailors the experience by instructing their clients on how to reproduce the look using products at home.

The staff members at Studio 1 Hair Designers have a not-so-secret weapon—Redken professional color. For clients who want to try a shade without playing for keeps, they use demipermanent shades, which fade gradually with time. To cover grays, they employ permanent color. Their ombre treatments lend locks an edgy appearance, and color-maintenance sessions keep coiffures well hued. In addition to color treatments, the studio's designers texturize, cut, style, and condition hair, as well as tend to nails and skin.

Nail artists at Holly's Nail Shop pamper and polish finger sheaths under the approving eyes of screen icons' portraits. Nail technicians begin each treatment with a buff, file, and cuticle inspection, carefully grooming each digit like a mathematician preparing his equations for their first public appearance. Solo pedicure options proceed with an exfoliating scrub, in which sea salt and aromatic scents help roughened heels slough off weathered skin. Digits dip into a warm vat of paraffin wax, which ensconces skin in a hydrating layer that helps hands retain moisture. A colorful layer of polish then slips over nails, accenting appendages' natural beauty without strapping mirrors onto knuckles at flattering angles.

Housed within the comfy confines of a brick abode, The Ivy Spa soothes world-weary bodies and skins with its massage and facial services. Calm-seeking clients can ease into velour leisure suit of relaxation with an hour-long massage in a variety of modalities.

Send aches back to their gloom-filled lairs with a shiatsu massage, a total body workup that calls upon the calming power of fingers and palms to alleviate sore spots, or pamper peds with a reflexology massage, which applies pressure to points on the feet that correlate with various parts of the body.

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.

Black, white, and brown decor embellishes Revival Salon and Spa's space, which is outfitted with hair-, nail-, skin-, and massage-treatment areas. Crystal chandeliers hover above stylists, who mend spilt ends with Pure NV botanical keratin treatments and change hair hues with Goldwell dyes. Nearby, nail technicians cradle fingertips as they wrap digits in gel, acrylic, ANC, Shellac, and metallic coverings. Aestheticians wield skincare products to refresh visages with 11 facial treatments, each designed to erase specific skin concerns. Specifically, these facials can treat fine lines, acne, and rosacea that comes and goes, just like Katherine Heigl's presence on television. The staff further beautifies clients by adding length to manes with Socap and Invisi-Tab hair extensions or defining peepers with NovaLash eyelash extensions.
