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.
De Integro Salons & Spa?s hairstylists, nail technicians, aestheticians, and massage therapists enjoy the best of two worlds. Though they share the same open-concept salon, each beauty expert operates independently. This results in a greater ability to focus on clients; for a compelling case in point, look no further than hairstylist Kathy. With 30 years of experience tucked under her belt, Kathy cuts, colors, and styles hair with professional products from Goldwell and AG?all while constantly referring to her clients for their approval. Kathy consults with clients by starting with dry hair, assessing client needs, taking recommendations from clients using photos of styles clients want and don't want to use, and making a recommendation of her own for a client. In private rooms removed from Kathy and her fellow stylists, massage therapists and aestheticians work to cleanse pores, relax muscles, and dull the edges of unnecessary third shoulder blades.
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 fully licensed crew at Brow Art 23 uses techniques developed in India and the Middle East to shape clients’ brows. Using a single piece of thread, they remove eyebrow and facial hair during a process called threading, which involves looping the string and using the loop to oust hair without using chemicals or wax. They also specialize in henna designs and makeup, as well as permanent makeup and eyelash extensions.
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. She takes her time at every stage of the manicure, never making her customers feel rushed, as she corrals cuticles and adds prismatic pop to nails with a rainbow of polish shades.
Three-time salon owner Beth Sadowski immersed herself in the art of hairstyling at Universal Academy Beauty School and while training with Bumble and bumble. This experience enabled her to open the doors to Wild Side Salon in 1996. There, she welcomes entrepreneurial stylists to join her by snipping locks and shaping nails at stations that they own themselves, creating a full-service salon where each team member is entirely invested in his or her practice. This opportunity has drawn stylists with an average of two decades of experience, including experts who have trained with Vidal Sassoon and Aveda before landing at Wild Side, where they perm manes and add depth with highlights. The salon’s aestheticians take over where the coiffeurs leave off. They treat nails to polish, hands to paraffin treatments, and visages to custom facials and glycolic peels, which combat signs of aging such as fine lines and leave skin as smooth as a cube of jello.
