Styles may come and go, but not much has changed in the 25 years since a group of co-owners founded Chrysalis Salon. They continue to work alongside a team of skilled stylists who create bold new looks with advanced techniques and professional products from Redken. Unruly curls are no match for their Keratin Complex and Japanese hair-straightening treatments, which mend and condition strands even as they smooth out kinks.
The salon, which resembles a vintage residence, is about more than just hair. Massage therapists release tension and stress with shiatsu and reflexology techniques, and aestheticians brighten complexions with customized facials and microdermabrasion treatments. The team even offers their own line of cosmetics, which can help convince everyone at your high-school reunion that you’ve been living in a hyperbaric tube since graduation.
Q&R Harmony Day Spa's aestheticians and massage therapists encourage relaxation and rejuvenation with skin and body services such as targeted facials, massages, or microdermabrasion. Wielding custom masks, exfoliation techniques, and ultrasonic technology, the team leaves faces smooth so that patrons can enjoy increased attention or dress up as a bowling lane for Halloween. They also draw on a menu of waxing services that whisk away unwanted stubble, eyebrow tinting to match recently colored curls, and hot-stone massages to obliterate tension. While the staff pampers, pastel-hued treatment rooms lull psyches into tranquil states and help patrons return to work or wash off sprayed-painted stress-wrinkles with available showers.
Complimentary plush towels and protective eyewear are just a few of the pluses at California Tanning Salon. Only stocking beds less than three years old and changing tanning bulbs at 75% of their projected life are a few of the others. This attention to details is all in the service of their customers and quality tans. As all three of their salons boast at least 10 beds, they also treat customers to the convenience of never needing an appointment. Catering to those preferring sunless tans, they offer the Mystic Tan automated spray booth at the Ledgewood location. Furthermore, customers can partake in a Midas Touch with customized airbrush bronzing at the Clifton location.
Describing itself as an "ultra-relaxing urban escape," Skin Station radiates tranquility from its outdoor patio garden to its private treatment rooms stocked with the latest aesthetic technology. Aestheticians specialize in customized, clinical facials that harness the hydrating, age-reversing powers of firming radio frequencies, vitamin C and collagen-rich serums, or age-spot clearing IPL. Hot-stone massages and scrubs enriched with brown sugar and Dead Sea–mud help leave bodies feeling soft and stress-free, while unwanted hair can be swiftly evicted with light technology, sugaring, strongly worded letters, or traditional wax treatments.
At Beauty SQ, hairstylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians administer a wide variety of treatments aided by OPI and BSQ gel polishes, naturally derived Aveda products, and deluxe Bumble and Bumble haircare serums. Therapists ease muscles with Western- and Eastern-style massages, such as deep tissue, acupuncture, herbal reflexology, and Chinese tui na, a technique similar to Swedish massage that aims to positively redirect chi, or energy, throughout the body. Aestheticians create tailored weight-loss packages by combining targeted massage with other treatments, such as body wraps or facials administered prejog.
The aestheticians at Bliss & Care erase signs of aging and protect skin from environmental damage with traditional spa services alongside laser-augmented treatments. Laser-assisted services include hair removal and acne-targeted therapies that use the heat of the elos IPL laser to blast acne-causing bacteria and reduce unsightly blemishes. Aestheticians customize facial treatments to address clients' individual skincare needs, from large pores to sagging skin, by mixing and matching skin-transforming agents such as seaweed, chemical peels, and lullabies sung in the complexion's mother tongue.
