With its starkly elegant black-and-white design scheme, On Stage Salon exudes a modern vibe that belies its 40 years in business. Ornate chandeliers illuminate the cushy, ebony salon chairs, from which stylists transform the manes of women, men, and children. A time-honed slate of services draw from cutting-edge products such as Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Wella color. The mirrors at each styling station—along with the delicately painted curlicues above them—reflect clients' newly minted perms, waves, and Slinky extensions.
Warm leaf-green walls ascend from a sprawling hardwood floor at Sizzor Trix, where friendly beauty boosters tend to nails and hair in equal measure. The waiting area’s black leather loveseats overlook an immaculate, mirror-lined space where shears snip through men’s and women’s haircuts, and a mani-pedi station renovates digits. Patrons sink into a plush pedicure chair that, unlike those at most conventional salons, comes equipped with a foot-soaking tub not swarming with orphaned jellyfish. With gentle hands and sharp eyes, an expert eyebrow threader excises superfluous strands using the ancient method, less painful than traditional plucking, of tying thin cotton threads through brows to speedily strip foreheads.
A topcoat-level mani-pedi pampers appendages with an olfactory-pleasing aroma soak before filing radical nails into shape and attending to contrary cuticles. Treatments come in three flavors: Chocolate Bar uses avocado oil and aloe along with sweet-tooth-tempting scents; Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey is full of sugar and spice; and Lemon Poppy Seed gives off the fresh scent of the Land of Oz's official baked good. Arm-paddles and bike-peddlers will be moisturized and massaged before being blissfully subjected to a sugar scrub. The professional nail artists use only non-toxic, virtually odorless products. Sugarcoated Nail Boutique offers a four-day chip-free guarantee on manicures, and a seven-day guarantee on pedicures; return for a re-polish after an unexpected bout of barefooted soccer or bare-handed bear-handling.
When Dr. Mary Peterson examines a patient, she doesn't see a person with an ailment but instead sees "a person wanting to take back control of their temple, their body." Keeping her patients' feelings in mind helps the doctor personalize treatment plans that will comfortably address their problems. These plans usually incorporate a blend of chiropractic care and acupuncture to improve nerve function and boost the body's innate ability to heal itself. Inside Dr. Peterson's private treatment rooms, a staff of aestheticians complements the doctor's curative therapies with relaxing massages, rejuvenating facials, and comforting bear-hugs.
Sisters Andrea Lee and Aleta Cohen, along with their squad of talented hairstylists, offer cuts, styling, colors, and chemical treatments at Sister’s Hair Gallery. Design Essentials products are featured in the slate of haircare services, which also includes braiding and extensions. The sisters and their staff welcome adults and children into their styling chairs, where they administer makeup applications and offer facial waxing.
The licensed and experienced stylists at the newly opened Europeana Salon and Spa focus on making every client?s hair look its best. The friendly, laid-back salon is spacious, with cushy leather couches and stations for manicures, pedicures, makeup, and updos. Redken and Nexus products are used to soften and shine strands.
Licensed cosmetologist Sita Patel uses techniques culled from her native India and applies her more than 10 years of cosmetic experience to artfully beautify her clients. She enlists professional products from brands such as Bioelements and American Crew during hair services, securing loose tendrils into bridal updos adorned with glistening gems. She can also remove unwanted hair using an ancient threading technique that is completely free of chemicals and less taxing for the skin than waxing. Henna tattoos dress arms in ornate decorations more temporary than regular tattoos but less temporary than a career as a human cannonball.
