At the helm of Yossi Salon and Spa is owner and master stylist Yoni Azari, a short-hair specialist bearing certifications from Wella, Toni&Guy, Rusk, and Alfaparf. Together with a staff of stylists, colorists, massage therapists, and nail artists, he strives to make the world a more beautiful place, sculpting lovelier locks with help from products by Aquage, Sebastian, and Redken, and curating clearer complexions with facials and microdermabrasion. When they’re not busy staying abreast of industry trends by attending educational seminars and reading Paul Mitchell’s diary, the crew at Yossi spends time giving back to the community by participating in charitable events such as St. Baldricks, Toys for Tots, and Forgotten Soldier’s Outreach.
The full-service Artisans Salon dutifully sweeps away aesthetic doldrums with a slew of beautifying services. A signature mani-pedi combo pairs a half-hour hand wrangling with a 45-minute foot sprucing, giving patrons plenty of time to relax with an offered glass of wine or cup of tea. The European-style manicure begins with an exfoliation of arid skin to make way for a metacarpal-melting massage using aromatherapeutic oils. The mitt treatment concludes after a paraffin-wax-glove treatment seals in elasticity, softness, and color and seals out actual seals. Worn-out little piggies find solace in a warm sea-salt-enriched soak that launches the pedicure procedure. Softened hoof hulls then receive a verbena scrub and mask. A fragrant hot towel curtails high-strung nerves, and a knee-to-toes rubdown releases tension from legs to make room for better cargo, such as a year’s worth of Cadbury Creme Eggs. Toe-tops are then given the Rolls-Royce treatment and polished to a perfectly designed shine with nail varnish.

Do you or your staff have any special certifications or degrees?
All students are supervised by licensed Instructors with years of industry experience, and all students have at least 16 weeks of training before working with the public.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
I believe our students would say color. They love color and high-lights.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
The color service and treatment was better than she received in a salon, and the prices were less than half of what she normally pays.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Maintaining a commitment to cleanliness, the nail technicians at Nail-Know-How also train continuously in the latest techniques, including foot care for diabetic clients. Their efforts shine through during spa services for men and women in a cozy, relaxing, and clean environment. Nail technicians sculpt fingers and toenails during standard mani-pedis, as well as during more luxurious treatments, such as a peppermint pedicure infused with the same aromatic scents Santa Claus uses in his high-end line of colognes. While nails remain their specialty, the experts also wax off unwanted hair and perform lash- and brow-tinting services.
