A haircut at Bradley & Diegel runs between $70 and $125, depending on the skilled stylist wielding the scissors. All stylists give a free consultation before they lop off a single lock, which is much more helpful than the government-mandated pep talk before the purchase of a baby turtle. During this consultation, you'll agree upon what sort of look you want to achieve. If your hair has begun to resemble a black-and-white film, B&D's colorists will turn your tresses to Technicolor with single-process roots ($70–$95), ends ($20–$30), or highlights ($90–$240).
At G. Skin Therapy, licensed clinical aesthetician and professional television makeup artist Glenda Engelbach uses advanced technology and clinical-grade products to beautify skin. After receiving a degree from the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics, Engelbach went on to complete post-graduate certification at the renowned International Dermal Institute. She is also certified in a number of innovative facial techniques, such as dermaplaning, and in the use of therapeutic and organic lines that include PCA Skin and Dr. Hauschka Skin Care. This combination of expertise in high-quality methods and products helped her earn recognition on Applaud Women magazine's 2011 Readers' Choice awards in the Best Facial category.
Engelbach employs the Trios intense-pulsed-light system to rejuvenate skin, remove hair, and clear complexions of acne. She also addresses skin concerns such as rosacea, age spots, and wrinkles, as well as sun damage caused by literally living under a magnifying glass.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins. At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon, and Dr. Paul Zaydon, a board-certified dermatologist. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively three-part harmonies over the intercom system.
Led by color-certified master stylists, Allure Hair Studio helps clients revamp or retouch their ‘dos with a range of contemporary and classic looks. Women, men, and children alike visit the studio for everything ranging from simple haircuts to extravagant updos to smoothing keratin treatments. Echoing the company’s emphasis on client education, stylists offer advice on how to preserve salon-like hair at home and reasons why it’s a bad idea to wear Pocket Polly–sized lanterns as earrings. Allure Hair Studio also houses a beauty salon, where guests enjoy mani-pedis, massages, and other pampering services.
The experts at Electrology Specialists of NE, LLC, use electrolysis to permanently and effectively reduce their clients' unwanted hair. Unlike many laser-based techniques, the treatment works for virtually all skin and hair types and can be used on almost any part of the body. What's more, advances in the treatment's technology mean that the most discomfort a client will feel is likely a slight warming of the skin and an awkward goodbye with dismayed chin hairs.
