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.
The stylists at Azar's Beauty Salon pamper and beautify clients with haircuts, special-occasion updos, and nail treatments. As clients gaze at themselves in the studio's curvy, leaf-shaped mirrors from the ergonomic salon chairs, the stylists work to devise a look based on their face shape, skin tone, and hair's phobia of getting long enough to touch the floor.
Within calming sea-green walls illuminated by soft track lighting, The Beauty Bar Specialty Shop's skilled team treats clients to an array of salon and spa services. The snip of stylists' scissors resounds throughout the shop's comfortably spaced salon stations during adult and child cuts as the protests of stubborn hair frizz are quieted by beauticians wielding advanced Lasio keratin treatments nearby. Using four different techniques, massage therapists coax tensions from muscles, leaving rubberized beings able to contagiously relax those around them, or to finally beat Galaga.
In addition to these services, The Beauty Bar's menu fuses hair, nail, facial, and waxing treatments into cocktail-themed packages, allowing customers to accomplish all of their aesthetic essentials within a single visit. The salon also hosts regular Botox parties, where registered nurse Michelle Balbi administers custom Botox, Dysport, Juvéderm, and Radius injections to attendees to diminish wrinkles.
Helmed by beauty-industry veteran Melissa Keppel, Aprile Salon embellishes coiffures with hair-prettifying services. Mane metamorphoses begin with a hair-cleansing shampoo that lifts away grime and washes out cracker crumbs left by shoulder-perched parrots. In the 60–90 minute highlighting session, the stylist enhances natural hues with Wella hair-coloring products, adding eye-catching bursts to once-uniform hair tone. After chromatic transformations, a style and finish prepare heads for reentry into the outside world, leaving 'dos looking more alluring than hypnotic, snake-fashioned wigs.
Pure Beauty Lounge owner Pamela works alongside cosmetologists, nail technicians, an aesthetician, and a massage therapist as they unleash soothed sighs and newfound beauty. Brushes flit across nails in manicure chairs, and a massage room in sage and burgundy hues offers privacy during kneading sessions. The massage therapist heats smooth stones, and aromatherapy oils release warm clouds of soothing scents like a soup made from love letters. The staff performs skin-refreshing facials and body wraps, and a hydrotherapy capsule bed with a water-jet massage and full-body steam bath purrs and hisses over a chorus of calm exhalations.
Inside an elegant Victorian building, the de-fuzzers at Always Pretty Salon and Spa evacuate strands from corporeal landscapes using hard wax. Bristle busters arch eyebrows, clean up kissers, deforest chests and legs, or depilate bikini lines with the gentle wax, which is designed to minimize discomfort and irritation while ensuring bodies are as smooth as an oiled cue ball. Those looking for a comprehensive bikini-area polishing can opt for the Brazilian, which clears all hair from bikini zones in about 30 minutes.
