At Flawless Designs, dark wood ceilings and minimalist decor keep the focus down where it belongs: at mirror level. That's where clients sit back and enjoy haircuts, styles, and color treatments performed by expert staff. Like the ideal job candidate fresh out of college, the staff has more than 25 years of experience, including some in New York City. Hair extensions, waxing, and updos round out their list of beauty-boosting services.
A day at Jade Nails & Massage Spa is enough to refresh your whole look. Nail stylists start by adorning cuticles in an elegant and protective exterior of french tips, crystal gel, or silk wrap. Aestheticians take over from there, beating back signs of skin aging with seaweed and vitamin C facials. Other staffers can even apply individual eyelash extensions that last for up to five weeks. To cap off the day, clients can schedule a Chinese massage session, which releases muscle tension but keeps your inner child trapped inside in case you get a chance to play Bop It.
Stylists at Artistic Design Hair Studio give their clients the styles they want, whether working with natural curls or working against Mother Nature with Japanese straightening systems and permanent waves. They cut and color locks with rich single-process hues and style them with products from Color Proof, Nuema, AG, and Baco Color. Away from the salon floor and the sound of split ends shattering on the ground, massage therapists ease tension with the gentle kneads of Swedish techniques, and aestheticians purify pores with Repechage skincare products and mineral makeup from Bodyography. The nail technicians put their finishing touches on new looks with manicures and pedicures with glossy OPI polishes.
Haircuts, highlights, and perms abound inside Bellezza Salon & Spa. The pampering continues with spa services such as mani-pedis and acrylic applications. The staff also boosts eye drama with lash extensions using sable, mink, or Barbie doll eyelashes.
At LaRae's Hair Salon, the eponymous proprietor Tanya LaRae leads a strike force of six stylists, all of whom possess at least 15 years of experience in styling the hairdos of men, women, and children. The team performs comprehensive dye jobs and chemical treatments powered by high-end products from such brands as Matrix and Sebastian. To accommodate those who prefer to fly by the seat of their pants or sole of their shoes, the salon accepts walk-ins Monday–Saturday.
