The staff at The Beauty Bar Salon & Spa is trained in a wide array of beautifying services, and can provide any number of uplifting treatments tailored to mind and body. The one thing they have in common, other than a dedication to creating a relaxing experience for their clients, is that they train continuously to stay up-to-date on the latest beauty trends and techniques. This highly educated staff boasts licensed cosmetologists, aestheticians, and massage therapists, who offer everything from haircuts and color treatments to massages, facials, and mani-pedis.
Cherry wood work stations and lush hardwood floors surround Paul Mitchell grad Jessica Levesque as she restores vivacity to bland strands with haircuts and applications of color using products by Paul Mitchell and Pravana.

Jessica specializes in creative coloring and ombre hair coloring, and prides herself on listening to customers in hopes of providing the look they want.
The owner of Urban Edge Hair Studio, Linda, draws on more than 14 years of experience to revamp hairstyles and soup up nails. Inside her salon garnished with floral wall motifs and hanging vines, she and her all-female team dole out coloring services, eyelash extensions, and organic spray tans. To oust stress, Theresa, a holistic licensed massage therapist, delivers Swedish, trigger-point, and sports massages in a private treatment room.
Amber Herzog, a licensed electrologist who honed her skills at the Electrology Institute of New England, helps men and women escape the cycles of unwanted hair growth. Sunshine filters in through the windows of the pleasant treatment room in which she works, providing abundant light for her meticulous task of sending direct and alternating currents into hair follicles using fine probes. Administered at multiple stages of the hair growth cycle, those currents destroy hair cells and inhibit future growth more effectively than individually setting each hair on fire. The treatments are minimally painful and are effective on all types of skin and hair.
The Vidal Sassoon–trained president of J.Kelley Salon Inc., Jill Kelley, leads the team of style savants and certified wax techs to beautify patrons by straightening unruly 'dos and expelling extraneous face and body strands. An experienced staff lavishes bodies with high-quality products such as All Nutrient's organic dyes, Nufree's waxless depilator, and American Crew developed specifically for the manes of men. Chic salon chairs and polka-dotted sofas hold clients in the clutches of bliss as they're pampered amidst the exposed brick walls and turquoise accents of the salon.
As a conscientious parent, Marlene Doughty wanted to use safe, nontoxic hair and skincare products around her 4-month-old daughter. She began to research the products she used in her home and discovered novocaine in her baby's shampoo. Marlene felt rattled. Once the shock wore off, Marlene realized she would have to take action if her vision of a toxin-free, eco-friendly home was going to come about. And why stop at home, when you could make work a safe, nontoxic environment, too?
As a testament to her ideals, Marlene launched Green with Envy Salon, a place where she and a team of eco-savvy stylists use organic, vegan, and cruelty-free product lines such as Organic Salon Systems. A host of green services take place within the studio's eco-friendly confines, which sport recycled or repurposed furnishings and blow dryers with ceramic heating elements that use less electricity than their traditional counterparts or covering a client's head in foil and sending them out in a thunderstorm to be zapped dry.
