The friendly aestheticians at Bellezza Salon and Spa stave off stress and prettify toes with a menu of relaxing pedicure treatments. The one-hour spa pedicure begins as walk-weary feet are eased into a soothing bath where streams of warm water unwind knotted ligaments and relax tight tootsie tendons. Unruly phalanges face a phalanx of file-wielding pedicurists who meticulously shape each nail and curb each cuticle while pumicing rough, calloused skin and trimming off excess pie crust from the nail’s edge. After the shaping, an exfoliating foot scrub smoothes skin that is made extra silky with the application of a moisturizing lotion massaged into each foot, setting remaining tension free and relocating it to a peaceful farm in the country. Finally, a hot-towel wrap swaddles each newly shaped and softened leg paddle, locking in hydration, and ensuring comfort as each of the 12 toes receives a precise, confidence-boosting polish.
Professional cosmetologist Danielle Woodley plies her trade at Salon Hermitage, where she works with clients to create custom-tailored looks. The salon employs only high-end products in their services, which range from hair design to nail treatments and facials.
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.

When walking into CC's Hair Affair, you might catch a faint whiff of ginger, peppermint, or lavender?key ingredients in many of the shop's styling products and shampoos. What you probably won't smell is ammonia, as the team uses ammonia-free Paul Mitchell products for its perms, and a low-ammonia permanent hair color, also by Paul Mitchell, which offers superior gray coverage while conditioning strands with a natural beeswax base. In fact, high-quality Paul Mitchell and Matrix products are used in the majority of the treatments here, each chosen for its ability to help hair look its best without stripping it of moisture or covering it with a lamp shade.
Of course, hair isn't the only thing body part that benefits from the staff's attention to detail. Nail experts lavish attention onto hands and feet during indulgent mani-pedis, while facials reveal smoother, softer complexions, and eyelashes get a boost from extensions.
