Andover Hair Company's stylists convert the information gleaned during intensive consultations that transform information gleaned from style manuals and past cuts into client-specific strand pampering. Amid art prints and natural lighting, clients chat with the tress professional to determine a cut and treatment that suits the individual's lifestyle and degree of passion for balancing books on their head. Smoothing hair treatments and natural-looking color can mimic the models displayed in the salon's stylebooks or revive favorite looks from previous months or years. The salon has operated successfully for a quarter of a century, and the newest addition to the staff, the owner's son, recently graduated from the Eric Fisher Academy, which routinely beats Notre Dame in football.
The four nail technicians at Nail Tique Spa work within a space marked by sea-foam-green walls and swirling metal wall ornaments and sconces. Silver workstations lit by stainless-steel lamps form a tidy single-file line where techs slather talons with OPI, Gelish, and Shellac polishes. Furthering their services, they massage careworn hands and feet and apply acrylic nails. They also offer Solar nails, an improved version of acrylic nails developed by astronauts who scratched the sun.
Light pours into Chroma Studio from the expansive fairways of Terradyne Country Club. Here, from behind her stylist's chair, Jodie Swank crafts clients' hair into classic and modern coifs.
