Getting a haircut is one thing; getting a hair design is quite another. At Headlines Hair Design, a professional staff with 70 years of combined experience is led by owner Joe Panichelli, a certified hair expert who's been designing stylish looks for men and women since 1975. As their careers have progressed, each stylist has kept up-to-date on the latest styling techniques to offer comprehensive hair design, and throughout the years, the owners have updated their salon's decor to reflect their cutting-edge services. To complement their hair services, Headlines also offers waxing treatments and bridal and special-event styling services.
A Best of Philly 2009 poster from Philadelphia Magazine hangs proudly in the window of Salon Charisse, recognizing Patricia Oelbaum's waxing prowess. As Patricia strips away hair from bikini lines, limbs, and faces in the backroom, a talented hairstyling crew bustles in the airy styling arena. Amid french-vanilla walls and floral paintings, the stylists reshape 'dos and add luminous dimension with highlights. Frizzy locks cascade like waterfalls of butter with help from Express Keratin treatments or the more powerful Japanese hair-straightening technique. The salon's stylists and aestheticians also host birthday parties, where they primp partygoers with manicures and makeup.
LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
The team at Bella Medspa comprises osteopathic physicians, nurses, laser technicians, and medical aestheticians, all of whom focus their skills on restoring youthful facets to faces. They use DiamondTome microdermabrasion technology to buff away dead skin cells and minimize age spots, and beauty injections to tame wrinkles and plump up features that have lost volume. Different injections, along with IPL treatments, help to reduce signs of aging, whereas flashes of laser light zap unwanted body hair on nearly any area of the anatomy.
The goals of Chez Raina Salon's experienced staff are to build strong relationships with clients and provide them with exceptional beauty services. Inside the highly sanitized salon space, nail technicians doll up digits with mani-pedis and paraffin treatments. Stylists consult with their clients before cutting and highlighting manes to create whole new hairdos. The staff's aestheticians use waxing services and facials to soften the skin until it's smoother than Boyz II Men lounging in a pool of baby oil.
The skilled technicians at Pour L’Image beautify clients with nailcare, waxing, and brow and lash tinting. They specialize in waterless spa pedicures, in which guests relax on comfortable pedicure cots with feet enveloped in warm booties, a nice change from the typical whirlpool soaks or shark-tank dips. Additionally, they use vegetable-based dyes to darken brows and lashes for up to six weeks.
