The services at Champs Elysees Day Spa are just as impressive as the street it's named after. Facials detoxify and cleanse visages with sea enzymes, olive oil, volcanic ash, and micronized crystalline gemstones blended with bentonite clay. Body treatments nourish physiques with exfoliating salt glows and volcanic-clay masks, and lactic and salicylic acid peels remove outer layers of skin to reveal fresh complexions. The French Victorian salon also offers eye-enhancing SofTap permanent makeup, luxurious massages, pampering mani-pedis, and face-framing haircuts.
Ally Volpi is a woman of many faces, in that she specializes in beautifying patrons from the neck up. Her hairstyling skills cover trims, color treatments, and extensions, and multiple MAC classes have endowed her with enough makeup know-how to bring out a jellyfish's cheekbones. She is also a certified NovaLash extensionist and channels two years of lash-lengthening experience when adding pizzazz to clients' peepers. Visitors need only navigate their way around Stone Creek Shopping Center's stone fountain to find her brightening mugs inside Salon Avanti.
Molly Moreno, the beauty expert behind Sublime Skin Therapy, keeps her clients looking their best with facials, waxes, and tanning treatments. She makes use of various chemical peels to tackle acne and signs of aging, and her back facials clear shoulders of blemishes and ingrown dorsal fins. Her organic spray tans give birthday suits an even, summery glow, and by applying eyelash extensions, she is able to add drama and glamor to every wink.
While studying cosmetology at Paul Mitchell the School, Tiffani Kowalski learned the ins and outs of epidermal healing. More than five years later, the certified aesthetician demonstrates those skills inside a private treatment room with soft green walls and burnished wood floors. Here, Tiffani invites clients to slip beneath a blanket as she exfoliates, brightens, and softens complexions with mango- and pumpkin-infused chemical peels and facials. She also applies waterproof eyelash extensions, which come in a variety of lengths and thicknesses, to define eye lines and uses Jane Iredale cosmetics to create a range of looks, from dramatic evening peepers to natural, flushed cheeks.
Following the age-old mantra about doing one thing and doing it well, The Green Room's staff members stick almost exclusively to waxing. They use this service to sculpt brows, neaten bikini areas, and clear male torsos front to back. The only other service offered by the salon?s staff is tinting brows and lashes, both of which enhance the eyes and provide an effective disguise for getting past speakeasy grates.
Bloom Boutique's crystal chandeliers, carved pink and cream furniture, and fresh orchids create a fairy-tale backdrop for the work of a team of lash extensionists, who help women look and feel beautiful for weddings and other special events. The shop, which was founded in 2006, has grown into a temple for getting dolled up, with a particular specialization in lash extensions. Here, coifs are curled and styled for events, unwanted hair is waxed away, and NovaLash mink eyelash extensions augment elegance. The mink extensions are applied lash-by-lash and each mink strand is curled, replicating the look of natural lashes. In the boutique, Swarovski crystals and seed pearls make veils glow amid a trove of accessories fulfilling requirements for old, new, blue, and, for daring patrons, borrowed.
The team brings their calm, reassuring demeanor to client events for on-location glamorizing as well as contributing makeup and hairstyling to photo shoots for magazines such as The Knot. Staff members welcome anyone prepping for a big night and stay on trend by researching constantly changing fashions so they can nimbly respond to requests from trend-hunting prom-goers and prom-patrolling undercover parents.
