When Michele Taber, a licensed cosmetologist of two decades, decided to open Meeshe’ Salon and Spa in her native county, the beautifier selected a waterfront Cayuga Lake location that exuded tranquility. Her salon and spa treatments transfer the natural serenity indoors with mani-pedis augmented by seaweed wraps and full-body scrubs that exfoliate with sea salt instead of the traditional tool, corrugated cardboard. A fleet of freshly updated tanning beds warm bodies to a beachy glow, and shears or wax rid bodies of excess hair.
Blissful Beauty Bar owner Amber Leigh Cole has worked her glamorizing magic on faces and bodies across the country, bringing the success of her original Salt Lake City eye bar––Blissfuleigh Iced––to sister locations in New York. Amber is a certified eyelash-extension specialist and a master aesthetician; her employees all boast similar certifications, and undergo an intensive three-month training before getting the go ahead to enhance exteriors with microdermabrasion, slimming body wraps, and airbrush tanning. House-specialty eyelash extensions are applied individually to the natural lashes, making lash lines look fuller and flirtier without dressing them up in mascara or low-cut cocktail dresses. The team can also dip lashes in a hard coating that adds drama and thickness for four–six weeks, applying it to natural lashes or as an extra enhancer to bottom extensions.
Simpaticos Salon & Spa maintains a welcoming atmosphere with complimentary bottled water, coffee, and tea—fitting complements to the salon's tempting menu of precision cuts, foil highlights, and coloring services. The spa end of the space offers four facials, including one infused with seaweed, as well as raindrop-therapy treatments, which help align the body through a combination of aromatherapy, reflexology, and massage techniques. To layer on the relaxation, Simpaticos also extends complimentary WiFi to clients who prefer to update their online profile pictures after each and every snip of the shears.
Shear Indulgence's pulchritude professionals pride themselves on keeping guests happy by utilizing high-quality products, offering thorough consultations before any service, and giving back to the community. During facials, the aestheticians utilize Repechage, a high-quality skincare line made from nutrient-rich seaweed and botanicals, and during coiffing services, the stylists, who regularly attend classes to keep their skills as sharp as their shears, always conduct thorough consultations before crafting alternative or classic styles. Shear Indulgence further pleases patrons by offering free cuts for chemotherapy patients, discounts for military personnel and senior citizens, and a salon credit for those who recycle empty professional-product bottles at the salon instead of tossing them into a wood chipper.
Every product that makes its way into the hands of stylists at Ginny Barrella Organic Hair Studio & Oxygen Bar is 100% organic. That includes the Organic Color Systems professional hair color that infuses strands with vibrant color, and a spray-tan formula that dries on skin without streaks. The full-service salon and spa also offers acupuncture, Reiki treatments, and oxygen bar?all of which take up two floors and is certified by and uses Organic Salon Systems's professional products.
With six manicures and seven pedicures in their arsenal, the skilled staffers at FRESH Nail Lounge and Spa lavish hands and feet with treatments that rely on products from Creative Nail Design, Essie, and OPI, and prioritize safety and hygienic practices. But they don?t stop at nail treatments?they call upon botanical ingredients to soothe and beautify bodies and faces. Highly-skilled skin care clinicians perform custom-blended facials for each individual's skin type.
