Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, men there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Clients sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, road to recovery facials, complete with a cleansing and hot towels.
Though everyone ages, the professionals at Ageless Beauty Skincare Clinic make sure their clients do so not only gracefully, but seemingly invisibly. Through a variety of non-surgical services such as chemical peels, multivitamin facials, and wrinkle lifts, the staff greatly reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines and skin spots. They also employ lasers and a rolled up newspaper to treat spider veins and tighten skin.
Custom airbrush specialist and salon owner Tania Holowach helps keep skin sun kissed year round with UV-free treatments. Clients can step into a VersaSpa spray booth, which delivers an instant bronze; tans intensify throughout the next few hours. In addition, tanning artists perform airbrush sessions in-house or on location, misting skin with a custom blended solution that lasts for up to two weeks. For UV tanning, SunDash and Ergoline tanning machines gradually deepen hues with amenities that include open-air booths and separate facial tanners. Tandulgence also stocks its shelves with products that maximize tans, moisturize the skin, and cleanse and exfoliate surfaces.
Vivid shades of green and red match the lighthearted attitude shared by Grace's staff of expert nail technicians as they tend to clients nestled into pedicure thrones or seated along a row of manicure stations. Tucked away in private rooms, beds support clients as they de-fuzz by way of wax or wind down with massages. The colorful salon also hosts manicure and pedicure parties that are accompanied by complimentary champagne.
At Berman Cosmetic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Berman trims patients' stubborn fat deposits that have proven impervious to exercise and dieting. Wielding the SmartLipo TriPlex laser lipolysis apparatus, Dr. David Berman sculpts lower abdomens, love handles, back bra lines, necks, and marble busts of Alexander Hamilton with a laser fiber, simultaneously bursting fat cells and kick-starting collagen production. Because the treatment is minimally invasive, patients generally experience very little pain, scarring, bruising, or swelling and can often return to work at the penny-polishing factory the next day. The procedure also gently heats the underside of the skin, helping to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of loose folds. As a result, SmartLipo can improve the look of areas already treated by liposuction or flattened between the pages of War and Peace. Depending on the chosen body area, the procedure can last 30 minutes to two hours.
At O’Haira’s Salon & Day Spa, skilled aestheticians refresh visages with one of eight custom facials. Like a first date, each session begins with a friendly greeting and comprehensive skin analysis designed to better personalize pampering sessions. Sizing up their options, clients can elect 90-minutes of pore-clearing power during a ProZyme clearing facial or fend off aging with a Youthful Renewal facial with an alpha-hydroxyl peel to help boost collagen and elastin production. Specially formulated options also grace the menu, including a rosacea treatment and the enlighten facial, which targets hyperpigmentation with a two-step exfoliation process.
