Hair is a valuable ally in protecting your scalp from the sun, winter cold, and nearsighted bowling ball collectors––all the more reason to keep hair as healthy as possible. That's where Mainstream Hair Studio comes in. Skilled stylists carry out a wide array of strand-centric services, snipping away split ends, fortifying them with a specialty conditioning treatment, or recoloring hair altogether. The salon also offers makeup services and swift waxing sessions to banish unwanted stubble.
It's possible to walk into Cheveux Design and walk out looking completely different. That's because their full menu of salon and spa services cover clients from scalp to toenails with hairstyling, manicures, waxing, and facials. As a Paul Mitchell signature salon, the staff drizzles Paul Mitchell products into hair during color treatments, straightening, and designer cuts.
Pamela Muller heads up Lashes Over Saratoga, where she bolsters natural fringe with semipermanent Xtreme Lashes. Customized designs range from flirty extensions applied to the outside corner of eyes, or full sets that add drama and intrigue to daily blinks. The extensions stay put even when wet, with touchups recommended every two–four weeks.
At Just Glamorous Salon & Boutique, clients, and more specifically, their unique beauty and style needs, come first. That’s why, with every haircut, clients also receive a shampoo and blowout style; why the Kertain smoothing treatment is designed to keep locks sleek for up to three months; and why owner and stylist Rachel Peluso frequently journeys to fashion-savvy NYC to stock the salon’s boutique.
In addition to hair services, the staff also beautifies clients with specialty makeup and waxing services, whether it’s for the big wedding day or the big welding day, which involves a lot of molten metal and, thankfully, no one wearing highly flammable gowns.
Rather than false lashes or implants, Simply Lashes' certified stylist, Lori Manny, applies Xtreme Lashes extensions to a single eyelash at a time. Despite being Lori's signature treatment, creating elegant, natural-looking lashes only skims the surface of her available services. A skincare specialist for more than 10 years, she treats epidermises with Dermalogica products during custom facials that can diminish signs of aging or acne. She likewise enriches skin by administering pore-unclogging chemical peels, waxing away unwanted body hair, and applying makeup that ranges from subtle to Blue Man Group impersonator.
Lash Out certified lash extensionist Courtney Vogel volumizes clients' natural eyelashes one lash at a time. She eschews fake lash strips; she prefers to use the Lavish Lashes system, which builds upon existing lashes instead of covering them up. Clients relax in a comfortable chair with their eyes closed while Courtney applies soft, natural-looking lashes one by one to the client's real lashes. Although this detailed service takes time and concentration, it adds length and volume without the need for globing on clumpy paste or gluing on doll-size feather dusters.
