Face-saving aestheticians warmly welcome visages with a skin assessment inside Roni's Hair Forum's classically inspired interior, rife with scalloped columns and elegant vases. They can then customize each facial by epidermal type and age. But skincare is just one hair in the salon's ample coif. Skilled stylists can deploy an army of microscopic architects to shape and color hair to individual demands. LED teeth-whitening services restore teeth to their once radiant brightness. Guests can also seek a mani-pedi, completing their pampering from head to toe.
Carman Musselman Nails at Noelle & Co's nail technician, Carman, believes each nail on each digit represents a blank canvas worth adorning. Through meticulous brush strokes, art accessories, and pampering manicure and pedicure services, she decorates nails in a kaleidoscope of colors and designs sealed by shellac and gel polishes. Carman also give hands a noticeably distinguished finish with full sets of acrylic tips and sculpted nails, rather than traditional, business-casual finger puppets.
Bred as half salon, half spa, Scott Talbot Salonspa overhauls men's and women's stale looks with a menu of hair, nail, and skin treatments. Armed with products by Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil, stylists enhance hair color with highlights and gray blending or break into a cutting frenzy by snipping off split ends or transforming floor-length hair into chic bobs to ward off overly aggressive princes. Cushy pedicure chairs line the nail area, where technicians push back encroaching cuticles and embellish fingers and toes with polish and acrylic fills. Aestheticians and massage therapists guide guests into a quiet spa room for one of five specialty facials or a Swedish massage.
Shiny wooden floors and walls painted in red, gold, and deep purple hues welcome clients to Edge Hair Design & Spa's bright, cheery locale. After filing and shaping nails, a manicure employs hand massage to loosen stiff claws into limber tickling tools. The pedicure adds extra spring to lackluster steps and dehydrated skin by infusing feet with intense moisture. Your choice of brightly colored OPI paints polish off both services. Face coverings can get equal attention with the nonsurgical treatment. The pumice peel and fruit-enzyme application infiltrate pores, evicting degenerate cells so moisturizer can nourish its healthy, youthful-looking counterparts. After delicate preparation, skin is primed to surrender the superfluous icky things it's been hoarding for months to a quick-working vacuum extraction. Each facial treatment ends with a warmed hand massage.
With a collective of stylists from all walks of life, the team at Salon Mystique can shape hair into any chic look their clients desire. Drawing on years of hair care experience, they perform everything from simple cuts and styles to intricate updos for special occasions. Beyond scissor work, they also brighten locks with color and highlights, smooth out unruly hair with Japanese straightening, and add natural-looking extensions.
While the stylists stick to strands, the rest of Salon Mystique's team focuses on pampering the rest of the body. Massage therapists relax muscles with masterful kneading and nail techs buff fingers and toes before applying chip-resistant Shellac polish or talons to better scratch one's back with.
Nicole Lee hails from a long line of stylists. Her closest role model, her father, Rodney Zeno, spent 45 years clipping tresses in his cozy single-chair studio before she took his place. Today, Nicole draws on more than 20 years of her own experience as she snips and arranges strands for men, women, and children. While she works, guests sit in a brown barber's chair surrounded by black-and-white checkered floors and walls dotted with golf memorabilia, all vestiges of Zeno's worthy reign. In addition to cuts, highlights, and perms, Nicole also offers waxing services and keeps a nail tech on staff to ensure that her clients' hands don’t get jealous and muss their new 'dos.
