Family-owned Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio—open since 1968—proffers its own high-quality line of cosmetics, which includes all manner of makeup and skincare products. During makeovers, makeup artists gussy up faces, matching colors to clients’ skin tones and Ninja Turtle mask, and cut and color hair into alluring new dos. During manicures and pedicures, techs lavish nails with OPI color in an open contemporary setting of gray, brown, and maple tones and white stainless steel. Shoppers get a chance to try out products, many of which are made in the United States, before they take the financial plunge.
At Nouvage Salon, owner Charbel Massoud and his team of beauty experts nurture hair with cuts, styling, and highlights and revitalize nails with soothing manicures and pedicures. Streaks of color add technicolor flair to monochromatic 'dos and straightening irons smooth out locks much more effectively than yesteryear's iron mallets and ceramic anvils. During mani-pedis, Nouvage's technicians brighten digits with the vibrant hues of glossy OPI polish.
Salon Element's stylists craft new looks for their clientele during services that range from full hair coloring and styling for ladies to cuts and highlights for men. As scissors fly and shampoo lathers, guests can contemplate the modern art that hangs around the salon. The staff doesn't stop at hairdressing services, though. They also help skin stay smooth with cosmetic waxing and keep hair straight and voluminous with keratin glazes.
It’s no surprise that a place called Healthier New You specializes in helping clients look and feel better. What’s more intriguing is how the spa’s owner and operator Rose actually accomplishes this. For starters, she uses an exclusive body-slimming wrap to reduce cellulite and tighten skin in sessions of up to two hours, using herbal ingredients to treat the face as well as the body. Her other beautifying services include an advanced treatment called microcurrent therapy, which uses a new machine to tone and tighten skin, reducing the appearance of blemishes and firming contours.
