The team at Roots Salon beautifies clients from head to toe with a full slate of services. Stylists revamp manes with trendy cuts and color, as well as add instant length with hair extensions. Inside private rooms, aestheticians tailor treatments to clients’ skin concerns—reducing sun damage with chemical peels and boosting collagen with phyto-stem technology. Soreness melts away beneath soothing massage kneads, and complexions are quickly enhanced with waxing treatments and makeup applications.
When creating a new hairstyle for one of her clients, stylist Lisa Leahy digs into her stash of beauty products. Popular brands such as Goldwell, Joico, TIGI, and Big Sexy help her blast through frizz, hydrate strands, and twirl locks into updos for prom or prom-themed weddings. She also removes split ends with ease, and cuts hair into face-framing layers, sleek bobs, or any other desired look.
The stylists and aestheticians at the full-service Salon West and Body Works Spa aim to make clients feel beautiful, empowered, and worthy of every minute of pampering. They perform a variety of services to help purge minds and bodies of impurities, from microcurrent facials to acne-clearing scrubs. The salon’s master stylists shampoo and blow-dry hair before sculpting it into busts of George Washington, and steady-handed nail technicians tend to hands and feet with luxurious manicures and pedicures.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
LaVita Laser's founder and practiced aesthetic nurse Erin K. Lehto recaptures skin's youthful allure with vivifying photofacial treatments. The 20- to 30-minute noninvasive procedure helps drastically fade the appearance of age spots, broken capillaries, and acne by shining concentrated light pulses along epidermal slates. LaVita's skin specialists describe the photofacial's relatively painless zaps as feeling similar to the snap of a rubber band or the smooch of a besotted hummingbird. After the treatment, visitors emerge sporting smoother skin tone and texture, prompting an increase in phone calls from admiring suitors and physicists demanding time-machine blueprints.
During her long tenure behind the nail counter, technician Linda Henson has refined her skills in everything from filing ragged edges to expertly applying durable, long-lasting Shellac.
