As its name implies, Transitions Salon is all about change—but only the kind of change that complements clients' preexisting beauty. The salon's stylists can expertly cut and highlight hair of all types, but they always take time at the beginning of appointments to ask for their clients' input. This is important, as their color treatments can dramatically change any look by covering up grays and shifting blond shades to full-on palomino.
BC’s Salon is run by a crew with more than a decade of experience in the beauty industry, which allows them to create services for clients that get them looking their best. The salon's stylists craft sleek new hairdos, and manicurists doll up digits with gel and acrylic nails as well as rock-star glitter tips. Nancy Perez, a certified lash artist, accentuates eye regions and makes two-eyed winking acceptable with her lengthening lash extensions. Hair extensions are also available, and stylists only use 100% real hair.
Hairdressing runs in his blood. As a third-generation stylist, Jeff—the owner and director of Gemmette Hair Studios—not only loved hair from a young age but acted on his passion and began working in the industry at the age of 15. He then went on to attend the Vidal Sassoon school in London before garnering enough skills to become a color specialist and educator for Paul Mitchell. Now Jeff shares his endless love for hair not only with his clients but with his team of stylists at both Gemmette Hair Studio locations. Under Jeff's tutelage, each stylist much complete the salon's training program before working their way through the ranks of junior, senior, and designer stylist. And, even after all that training, the group still shows offs their hunger to learn by mastering the latest hair trends and techniques through continuing-education courses.
Along with precision cuts for adults and kids, Japanese hair-straightening treatments, and corrective coloring, Gemmette's crew is skilled in eyelash extensions and makeup applications. Hair can also be restored with the salon's reviving blow-dry treatments, which help brighten locks, protect against breakage with argan- and olive-oil-infused products, and boost volume.
Though the focus in each Gemmette Hair Studio is the client, the owner did not skimp on decor. Both locations offer elegance—one with baroque decor and the other inspired by zen—as well as fully stocked color bars boasting every shade of the rainbow, including pot of gold.
Venus Esthetics’ tranquil spa retreat is a honeycomb of intimate treatment rooms in which clients rejuvenate their looks or shed undue stress. Aestheticians pamper the countenances of men and women alike, glazing faces with antioxidant-rich products, aromatic essential oils, or cheekbone-enhancing Venetian masks. To nourish skin below the neck, clients can wallow in full-body treatments infused with organically grown seaweed, algae, or sea salt. The spa’s massage therapists employ therapeutic bodywork that soothes musculature sore from stress, injury, or physical exertion. The center's cosmetic technicians outfit themselves with top-secret technology, including a skin-firming ultrasound machine and an aesthetic laser system.
When it comes to beauty, Luxe Hair Lounge and Day Spa covers all of its bases with an expert for almost every aspect of the body’s appearance. The salon’s stylists, for example, revitalize scalps with precision haircuts and treatments that add volume and texture to wilting strands. Not to be outdone, the spa’s aestheticians smooth away wrinkles with beauty injections and oversee a tanning bed that imbues skin with shades of bronze. There’s a reason all of these services exist under one roof. Luxe’s one-stop beauty emporium saves clients time that would otherwise be spent running from salon to massage studio or tediously melting a wax candle over all of their hairy body parts.
At Artistry Skin, it's not uncommon for clients to arrive with one face and leave with an entirely new one. That's thanks in large part to the efforts of the spa's expert aestheticians, who revamp looks with services ranging from exfoliating microdermabrasion and chemical peels to microcurrent treatments and oxygen infusions. Aided by pro-grade products from Yonka, Eminence, and Dermalogica, the team tackles common signs of aging, easing evidence of laugh lines, crow's feet, and years of sun exposure. They also remove unwanted body hair with hot or cold wax, and turn eyes into precision expression-makers with brow shaping and lash tinting services.
