Always with one eye focused on the evolving techniques and trends of hairstyling, Robert Jeffrey's haircare professionals help clients design a flattering new look that complements their features as well as their sense of style. A simple trim can add layers and shape to a hairdo, although highlights, deep conditioners, and texturizing treatments can create more dramatic changes by adding depth, dimension, and healthy luster to the strands.
Beyond hairstyling, Robert Jeffrey caters to its clients' needs by offering a variety of classically indulgent spa services, such as personalized facials, waxing sessions, and makeup-application lessons that teach patrons how Fun Dip powder can double as rouge in a pinch. The staff members' passion for effective care also extends to the product-display shelves, which feature the salon's exclusive, eponymous line of shampoos and conditioners designed for simple at-home use.
Sine Qua Non Salon has been called a Salon of Distinction by Salon Today, the home of the city's Best Highlights by Refinery29, and "the place with the hairy donuts" by a confused old man. For more than 20 years, the salon's four locations have upgraded hairdos with new colors, texturizing treatments, and expertly trained stylists. They also sling products from Bumble and bumble, Aveda, and Éminence Organic Skin Care.
The stylists at Edessa's Hair Salon draw on years of experience working with all types of hair to give each client the look they desire. They trim away split ends with precise scissor-snips, infuse strands with rich color, and deep-condition tresses with balms and butters by Redken and Biolage Hydrathérapie. Patrons can also peruse more than 150 shades of OPI nail polish for meticulous manicures and spa pedicures.
The list of cosmetologist Carmen’s beauty talents is long. She cuts, colors, straightens, and curls hair with the help of Goldwell and Matrix products. She waxes faces, bodies, and tails with Honee wax. And she gently conquers acne and wrinkles with facials. Her beauty offerings also include makeup applications, which complement brow- and lash-tinting services for an all-over makeover.
The staff at Integrative Body Science is a veritable United Nations of scientific and holistic healing. Need to rebalance some energy?

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
We tailor our signature facial to each individual, which begins with two deep cleanings that remove any surface residue and allow for a better examination of the skin. A soothing massage with herbal balms promotes relaxation, enhances the regenerative benefits of collagen stimulation, and delivers phyto-nutrient derivatives on a cellular level. While steam opens pores, a custom enzyme mask removes any remaining dead skin cells. This facial also includes a hand-and-foot massage, as well as a protective moisturizer.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
Electric facials are fun and stimulating. Utilizing specialized high frequency, we stimulate collagen production in the skin, destroy any bacteria hiding under the skin, and provide for a rather fun experience for the client.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
I have worked with several clients that wanted to look their best before their wedding day. By developing a treatment plan using a series of peels. Our clients have consistently been convinced that these products work. Client after client that utilizes a series of peels and follows proper protocol, are elated now that they can see a visual difference in their skin, without ever having to go under the knife.
