With an impressive resume that includes nearly 20 years as a cut and color specialist and certifications in ombre color, razor cutting, and keratin treatments, Cristina Kohlman proudly and confidently helms Kristen Salon. Of course, like all good salon owners, Cristina has an equally impressive team of stylists and aestheticians by her side. Together, they revamp clients from follicle to pore with a line-up of hair and skin services.
In the salon, stylists lop off split ends, enhance short ‘dos with So Cap Hair Extensions, and condition and color hair with products by Eufora and Kevin Murphy. Aestheticians invite clients into private treatment rooms—and not just for Dermalogica facials, but also for waxing treatments and makeup applications. Kristen Salon provides special services to bridal parties and reception waiters who, for once, would appreciate a little recognition.
The stylists at Shazi's Hair & Beauty Salon provide the latest styles to clients in need of a haircut, color change, or eyebrow shaping. They also restore damaged hair with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger products. Using these products during a Keratriplex treatment, the stylists reduce breakage by up to 80%.
Decked out in soothing amber colors, Cynthia's Salon Day Spa is designed to provide an escape from everyday stresses. Inside, a team of skilled nail techs and aestheticians administers treatments ranging from mani-pedis with Swarovski nail art to chemical peels and oxygen-therapy facials.
The medical team at New England Eye and Facial Specialists uses innovative technology to create personalized plans of care that treat optical and epidermal ailments. Board-certified Ophthalmologist Adam Beck M.D.?a former clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School?improves eyesight with procedures such as LASIK or PRK laser corrective surgery. Supported by a team of aesthetic nurses and medical aestheticians, the center revives appearances with advanced skincare and innovative technology that range from skin tightening with Pelleve to CosMedix and Results RX physician-only chemical peels that calm all skin types.

No matter how much tension they work out of muscles, how many updos they sculpt, or how many times clients request they make lightsaber sounds during laser hair removal, the staff at The Galleria Day Spa keeps learning about the latest beauty and health trends. This devotion to continuing education informs each service, from bikini waxes to gel manicures. Skin treatments, such as facials and peels, rely on formulas from Dermalogica and GlyMed Plus, and the staff reaches for similarly high-end products from Paul Mitchell and Moroccanoil during salon services.
