The stylists at Yalda Beauty Salon & Spa prep their clients for any event or outing with hair services, day and night makeup application, waxing treatments, and nail services. From an outpost nestled inside the Ballston Common Mall, the pros beautify clients with the help of popular salon product lines including Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and TIGI.
The staff at Modern Nails believes in the importance of regular manicures and pedicures to keep nails healthy, strong, and well-groomed. Each day, clients enter the salon and are greeted by the smiling faces of skilled technicians who perform a plethora of nail-related services, from simple polish switches to avocado-rosemary manicures and luxurious European pedicures with whirlpool spas. They also apply acrylic and gel nails as well as silk wraps, which strengthen nails and provide jobs for out-of-work silkworms. Though the staffers are mostly dedicated to nail services, they also offer body waxing, threading, and eyelash extensions.
One part school and one part salon, Kenny’s Hair Salon instructor stylists teach both aspiring beauty professionals and clients the ways of beautification. Here, style students put the finishing touches on practice hairstyles and learn the ins-and-outs of professional makeup application. Meanwhile, the seasoned veterans practice what they teach, primping clients to perfection with trendy cuts, while showing them how to re-create their new looks at home. Their hair-straightening treatments smooth out kinks, rendering locks frizz-free with Coppola Keratin Complex or the organic ThermaFuse f450º system. Beyond tending to tresses, the staff pampers hands with manicures that ready digits for making an appearance out on the town or tickling royalty.
Step into the tranquil, vine-filled space at Solarus and treat damaged strands to a total renewal with a restorative holistic hair and scalp treatment, including a soothing 30-minute shoulder, neck, and scalp massage.

You'll leave Solarus relaxed and ready to tackle unexpected iguana uprisings.
Modern Day Spa soaks its clients in sweet serenity with an array of relaxing and refreshing spa services, administered in an environment of tranquility. Turn your soul-suitcase over to the spa's therapists for a 50-minute Modern Swedish massage ($90), which uses ample applications of pressure to gently ease out hornet's nests of hurt and tension. During the 50-minute Modern European facial ($90), Modern Day Spa's skilled aestheticians will exfoliate the skin, cleanse pores, and remove dead skin like autumn's leaves from a computer CD drive. A customized mask will be applied to elicit further radiance from a head's real estate, while a relaxing massage will soothe the face and décolleté. Finally, the Modern manicure ($23) classes up cuticles and nurtures nails, with warm towels and a massage further finessing the fingers for future endeavors in banjo-picking.
