Sylk Spa & Salon's stylists, aestheticians, and bodywork experts pamper guests from head to toenail with all-natural and environmentally friendly products, including Surface haircare, Skin Fitness Therapy, and SpaRitual nail polish. Women, men, and even children can stop by for haircuts, and other beautifying and relaxing treatments range from whole-body scrubs to massage therapy. To complete the soothing experience, the spa and salon's dark cabinets, copper-hued walls, and flickering fireplace create an atmosphere as peaceful as a dove-producing magician.
Expert hair stylist Andrea Frederes, who has more than 20 years of experience, uses 100% human-hair extensions from SO.CAP.USA's private facility in Italy to lengthen, volumize, and highlight shorter locks. Andrea helps clients select up to 100 extension pieces, which include 81 different pigments, to match the color, texture, and sleep cycles of their well-tenured hairstock. She then uses natural keratin protein to fuse together existing hair with the chosen extensions. In addition to the several texture options, guests can further bedazzle their hairdos by incorporating feathers, crystal strands, and two-tone follicles. A cut and style puts the finishing touches on newly crafted coiffures, creating a decorative head accessory that's elegant and modest—unlike a diamond-studded peacock.
Stylist Amanda McCormack molds manes and enlivens locks with a range of hair services, bestowing her clients with a duded-up do that reflects their personality. A cut from Amanda frames the face with striking precision, sculpting tresses to reflect the latest trends or to subdue a wisecracking bouffant. The highlight session begins with a consultation to determine which hair color best complements eye color, skin tone, and preferred clothing palette. Those with heads covered in follicular curly fries can opt for the Brazilian keratin treatment, a formaldehyde-free straightening session that eliminates 95% of frizz by infusing the hair's cuticles with natural keratin, leaving manes lustrous. Argan oil is added for strength and pliability, and each treatment keeps strands silky and supple for up to four months.
Salon Raven amalgamates naturalistic products and modern techniques to infuse hairdos with eco-friendly fortifications and a hefty dose of glamour. Clients inadvertently roped into a Hitchcock-esque game of cat and mouse can attractively alter their appearance with a vivid color application for attracting glances of admiration while remaining incognito. Hair spectrum shifting is performed with an eco-friendly line of organic products. Sport a new skull sculpture for dinner dates or ghoul-summoning incantations in front of a mirror with a haircut from an experienced strand artisan who will sculpt cranial cilium into a customized style before treating it to a moisture-eviscerating blow dry.
Cheryl Miner, the owner of Furnaceville Barber Shop, likes nothing more than the contented sigh of a satisfied customer relaxing in her barber's chair. It's hard not to relax in that chair: after all, Miner and her apprentice, Karen Bradbury, make it their mission to keep men looking and feeling their best with old-fashioned grooming services. Surrounded by clippers and hot-lather machines, clients sit for buzz cuts or custom haircuts. Like the barbershops of yore, each haircut comes with a complimentary straight-razor neck shave with warm, soothing lather. To complete the dappering up, Cheryl offers facials with hot towels and eucalyptus that keep men's skin healthy and balanced.
Anne Marie O'Connor the laser technician behind Head to Toe Essentials Salon & Laser Spa, lives up to the salon's name by eradicating unwanted hair from the entire body. To accomplish this, she turns to the Cynosure Elite laser, which combines two different wavelengths to treat a variety of areas on all types of skin. Each pulse of light targets several follicles at the same time, and the procedure involves little to no downtime, allowing clients to return to the office in time for the daily toner-chugging contest. O'Connor perfected her skills at the Berkowits School of Electrolysis, and takes great pleasure in using her talents to help clients.
