Housed in the historic Wiltsie & Crump building—originally erected in 1886 to serve as Pittsford's general store—The Soho Salon's warmly lit interior is home to a collective of former salon owners, veteran colorists, and seasoned stylists. The cosmetic doyens flock to the salon for a chance to work with owner Chas Inzinna, the aesthetic engineer who designed the Hair Color Formula Encyclopedia—an essential reference for colorists on how to create more than 70,000 hues. Inside, bright-red mirrors punctuate lush, cream-curtained walls and couches. Golden lamps dangle above the freestanding chairs, where stylists, such as 15-year veteran Orlando de Nobrega, cut, color, and style coifs into busts of Wile E. Coyote.
In a tranquil spa space, Saggio Spa's aestheticians and massage therapists alleviate stresses stored throughout the body with a range of traditional and exotic facials, massages, and other spa services. Seven types of massage blend various modalities and may incorporate oils, hot paraffin, or hot stones to soothe aching muscles and relax tattoos of growling tigers. Both massages and facials sometimes call on aromatic essential oils and scrubs to refurbish skin; standouts among these include eucalyptus and mint oils, sea salts, and manuka honey. When not soothing back pains or flushing dirt from pores in their private treatment rooms, the spa staff organizes bridal and birthday parties for larger groups.
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.

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.
Pol'ish Salon & Spa's Sue Thomas devotes her skills as a nail technician to performing several manicures and pedicures. Her service menu includes gel polish manicures, which involve more filing and buffing than a weightlifting lawyer's schedule. Sue infuses friendliness into each service she renders, and she strives to make each visit relaxing for her guests. That emphasis can be found in her spa pedicures, which incorporate hot towel treatments and extended massages of the feet and legs.
