Stylists. Makeup artists. Aestheticians. Massage therapists. Nail technicians. The lengthy staff roster at Mancini Giuffre represents the salon and spa's lengthy list of services, all performed by experts in their respective fields. Skilled hands cut and color hair, deep clean pores with facials, and soothe achy muscles with just the right massage strokes. They also take their treatments outside of the confines of Mancini Giuffre, beautifying wedding parties before they walk down the aisle.
Ziada, the owner and a master stylist at Salon H2O, has spent more than 22 years behind the styling chair, training in international locales and picking up certifications in Wella coloring and Coppola Keratin in the process. Even with all that experience, she still strives to provide her clients with cuts and colors that toe the line between looking natural and exhibiting the latest trends. Fortunately, she has a team of experienced stylists and colorists backing her up. At Salon H2O, they perform services ranging from precision cuts and coloring to Wella penetrating treatments and Brazilian Blowouts. They also beautify the rest of the body, treating clients to restorative mani-pedis and facials. Looking good isn’t the only goal, though; clients can also enjoy a glass of wine and a massage, which relaxes away stress earned while stuck in rush hour traffic or worrying about a misspelled tattoo.
Dramatic or demure, every makeover at Blue Velvet Beauty Lounge & Spa is dispatched with expert artistry and precise, virtuosic technique. Technicians slick nail beds with gel color, stylists snip and style, and massage therapists gently shoo away the baby elephants that attach themselves to backs. Blue Velvet's collection of skincare products and gear equips estheticians to issue a host of effective treatments: ultrasonic, microcurrent, and LED technology resurfaces complexions and helps soften discoloration, and potions from Dermalogica and Eminence grace pores with top-notch ingredients.
The seasoned aestheticians, stylists, and massage therapists at David James Salon & Day Spa dedicate themselves to performing personalized services within a wide range of spa and salon treatments, from facials and makeovers to coif upkeep and mani-pedis. Customized facials follow careful skin analyses, with a medley of visage-rejuvenating sessions to help target fine lines, alleviate acne, and refresh skin dried out from attempts at tanning under life-size magnifying glasses. The spa’s mud wraps, full-body scrubs, hot-stone treatments, and mélange of massage modalities work to de-stress and detoxify physiques from toe to head. Hair humanitarians tend to coifs with fresh, fashion-forward cuts, coloring services, deep conditioning, and straightening treatments to banish follicular curly fries. The professionally trained staff is consistently educated and trained on new styles and techniques, in order to keep services updated with the latest trends.
The Village Beauty Lounge's chic and relaxing space invites clients to indulge in organic therapies that enhance their looks and uplift their spirits. A climb up the back-lit staircase is the first sign that things are taking a turn for the luxurious; once inside, guests are greeted by earth-toned walls and softly-lit hanging lamps. The decor sets the mood for such uniquely pampering treatments as ice cream pedicures, citrus hot cream manicures, and curiously peanut butter-free jelly foot baths. Inside equally sleek private treatment rooms, therapists administer hot stone and aromatherapy massages. Skincare specialists, meanwhile, render complexions radiant with hydrating and vitamin C anti-aging facials. As visitors relax, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs cancel out the big city stimuli teeming on the other side of the spa's doors.
The skilled technicians at all of O Spa's three beauty havens focus on fostering whole-body well-being as they tend to skin with more than 10 treatments, including more than 10 massage modalities. Advanced med-spa treatments include laser hair removal with the Eterna Giovinezza by Quanta System, which destroys follicles at the root with its heated rays in 15-minute to two-hour sessions. Permanent-makeup sessions focus on defining facial features with cosmetic tattoos. The areas are first covered with a topical anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable before a permanent-makeup artist inks the lids with faux eyeliner, fills in the brows, or creates the illusion of full lips by tattooing "I Heart Mom" around them.
