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.

Old-fashioned acrylic nails can sometimes be as much of a problem as they are a stylish statement. That's why the nail technicians at Something About Nails specialize in Nexgenails applications, a water-resistant artificial-nail system that has the appearance and physical qualities of natural talons. The odor-free treatments strengthen the nails, do no damage to the nail beds, and promote nail health with an infusion of calcium and vitamin E. This way, Something About Nails can provide visitors with a safe and healthy alternative to acrylic nails and fingertip chainmail. The duo also primps fingers and toes with a full menu of manicure and pedicure services, some of which include Shellac gel polish and soothing paraffin dips, as well as custom facial skincare.
