When Michele Taber, a licensed cosmetologist of two decades, decided to open Meeshe’ Salon and Spa in her native county, the beautifier selected a waterfront Cayuga Lake location that exuded tranquility. Her salon and spa treatments transfer the natural serenity indoors with mani-pedis augmented by seaweed wraps and full-body scrubs that exfoliate with sea salt instead of the traditional tool, corrugated cardboard. A fleet of freshly updated tanning beds warm bodies to a beachy glow, and shears or wax rid bodies of excess hair.
Though Miracles' quirky and diversely talented staff of stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians aims to lift patrons' spirits with beauty transformations, their work did not wholly inspire the salon's name—the beauty sanctuary's original location was inside an old church. Owner Kendalia Edelman has since expanded her business into a larger location, enabling her to add an area for laser treatments that target everything from excess hair to leg veins. She also found space for Little Miracles, a separate salon where kids up to age 9 can get haircuts with supervision from parents and invisible friends moonlighting as style consultants.
From their perch near Syracuse University, Studio FX’s team of hairstylists, nail artists, and wax technicians have beautified locals for more than 35 years. Their specialty hair services include highlights, hair extensions, updos, and Brazilian blowouts, which leave hair sleeker and more manageable for up to five months. Apart from hair, they paint nails, apply make-up, wax, and lengthen eyelashes with extensions.
When clients visit DeJon?s Hair Design, they aren't getting just another haircut. The salon staff meticulously creates classic and modern haircuts that benefit each client's face shape and grooming routine. Stylists fade gray hairs on men with a five-minute color treatment, and add highlights to women?s locks. The spa side of the business offers relaxation with Manuka honey facials and mani-pedis.
Licensed stylist Jane Elmer and her staff create stylish cuts and lush locks in her cozy Solvay salon, taking clients through a thorough consultation before every treatment and explaining products and techniques to ensure every style can be recreated at home, on vacations, or high atop a ferris wheel. Brazilian blowouts forge stronger, smoother, healthier hair through a 90-minute static-sapping and cuticle-calming process that coats hair in a protective layer of protein, leaving locks shiny, straight, and glowing for up to 12 weeks.
The friendly staff at Garbo's Salon Spa & Tanning Center works to darken human hides using state-of-the-art UV beds and professional spray-tanning equipment. Clients can walk or sock-slide across hardwood floors to one of three private chambers named for Caribbean locales, where they’ll slip into a bed or booth to bronze under UV light for up to 12 sun-kissed minutes. Alternatively, a professional airbrush tan swiftly tints bodies with beach-ready hues without recourse to coconut-colored Crayolas. In addition, the knowledgeable staff installed at Garbo’s curvaceous brushed-metal reception desk can help answer clients’ bronzing questions or divulge the most ray-stealing tanning pose.
