Current owner Flora Suissa and the founders of Suissa Salon trained in Paris and Montreal before opening their first salon in 1970 in the US. They took what they learned in the City of Light and the Province of Poutine, and created their own brand of salons. It was only a matter of time before their style shops grew into myriad locations.
Today, Suissa features a roster of talented stylists, aestheticians, and nail artists. They've also got an ace up their sleeve: Eve Diaz, who developed her own line of beauty products?LaPenotiere?which is the primary product line featured here. Armed with talent and products, stylists deliver haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments that discipline frizzy and static-addicted hair. They also offer weft tape extensions and hijab services, offered in private suites. Suissa's stylists pride themselves on their versatility, which means they're familiar with a large and diverse client base and are adept at working with clients of all ethnicities and a wide range of hair types.

The confidence of A 2 Z Hair Studio's staff of hairstylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians puts clients at ease as soon as they enter the day spa. In addition to routinely seeking out techniques and mastering new trends, the team members employ professional-grade products in their everyday treatments. These lines include everything from Moroccanoil and Goldwell hair-conditioning balms to Shellac and OPI nail polishes. Equipped with high-end shampoos and conditioners, the stylists can recreate a classical look or devise a more modern hairdo by incorporating asymmetry or holographic bangs. Beyond hairdos, the staff can also pamper its clients with indulgent mani-pedis, body treatments, and facials that rejuvenate skin tone using 24-karat gold, Vitamin C-rich salves, or a customized selection of skincare products.
Miracles in the City founder Olympia Hantzopoulos has stayed busy for nearly two decades overseeing a team of hairstylists and developing her own line of styling products. In addition to a whirlwind of activity that results in ombre color, hair gloss, replenished chit-chat reservoirs, and Brazilian keratin smoothing, the space demonstrates Hantzopoulos?s other passion: recognizing the work of female artisans in developing countries. The boutique side of the business sparkles with jewelry such as antique tribal necklaces, hand-blown glass trinkets, and beaded cuff bracelets. The salon also hosts an art gallery with installations that have included children?s art from an Afghani orphanage.

Meanwhile, on the spa side of the business, aestheticians perform facials with Seacret Dead Sea products to help hydrate dry skin and remove acne-causing dirt and oil, while makeup artists enhance natural beauty with Jane Iredale cosmetics or permanent makeup.
