The sounds of laughter and lively chatter echo across Tony & Friends Salon and Spa’s expansive studio as stylists revivify scalps and aestheticians refresh skin with professional PCA products. If the stylists need any inspiration for their designs, they need only glance up at the geometric patterns that stretch across the walls or down at the smooth, sleek lines that run across the hardwood floors. The salon hosts girls' night out parties on Friday nights, inviting up to 10 ladies to enjoy complimentary appetizers as the staff applies cosmetics, massages sore muscles, and supplies cotton makeup pads for the gentlest of pillow fights.
The seasoned stylists at Charlie’s East Coast Hair Designs keep skin radiant and strands carefully arranged with haircuts, facials, and massages. Inside Charlie's, a black leather couch hosts visitors, and the granite-topped color bar holds varied shades of hair for customer perusal. Plants provide a backdrop to the tile-floored beauty palace where aestheticians spruce up visages with facials or makeup, coating skinscapes with elegant coloring or neon-green in-house chlorophyll.
Pulling from her training in contemporary nail-technician techniques, Jamie adorns nails in shades of soft pink, red, or purple. The skilled specialist boasts a diverse collection of shellac nail polish, which is known for its durability and mirror-like finish.
Splendide's warm, welcoming atmosphere helps you feel comfortable as an experienced aesthetician attends to and your depilatory needs. The Brazilian wax ($50 value) readies nether regions for a summer of going to the beach or attending art museums wearing a swimsuit, and the brow wax ($18 value) fulfills desires to emulate the clear, open spaces of the southwestern deserts or to wear eyebrows in the shape of finely maintained ski-jumps. Though it may cause discomfort, hairlessness from waxing lasts longer than shaving.
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.
