Carousel Salon may have moved locations since it was established more than 50 years ago, but it still retains its commitment to providing classic beauty treatments in an inviting, unpretentious setting. The salon's stylists are well versed in creating new hairdos through cuts, coloring, and texturizing treatments, and each member of the team specializes in a unique area of expertise, ensuring that virtually any look can be achieved. Beyond styling, the salon also offers waxing treatments, and nail technicians perform indulgent mani-pedis that include soothing paraffin dips.
The techs at all Victoria's Nails and Spa locations have one thing in common: they pride themselves on running clean shops where clients can come to get their paws pampered. Techs do their best work at the foot of comfortable pedicure chairs, where they apply polish to toes to make them more attractive and less likely to be mistaken for weird bugs and stepped on.
As an Aveda concept salon and spa, Belliard's Hair Design Studio and Spa naturally augments its services with the wholesome, herbal products Aveda has become known for. Pairing these with a hodgepodge of techniques, the aestheticians pamper complexions during facials and body treatments, including steam baths fueled by minerals, sea salts, and fuming rubber ducks. Stationed across the spa's hardwood floors, hairstylists shape manes into fashionable 'dos, massage therapists dish out a repertoire of kneads, and nail technicians accent fingertips with OPI Gelcolor. A warm fireplace collaborates with subdued lighting to soothe clients sitting in sleek styling chairs.
A combination of technical prowess and creativity steady the shears and blow through the hairdryers at Bernard's Salon and Spa, a beauty center that aims to have its clients feeling like they just stepped off the cover of Vogue. Not all the staffs' attention is focused on the scalp, however—aestheticians deftly apply cosmetics before nights-on-the-town, perform rejuvenating facials, remove unwanted fuzz with wax, and shape cuticles during mani-pedis. Massage therapists, meanwhile, use swedish and deep tissue techniques to ease tension from the body, making clients appear more relaxed, approachable, and less likely to pop a neck vein.
The professional waxers at Spice Salon upend unwanted hair with warm wax and a soft cloth during treatments administered at the chic, full-service salon. Mustaches borrowed from cartoon villains slink away in defeat alongside their chin and eyebrow counterparts. Full face waxing frees entire façades from unwanted hair or years of overgrown ivy, and customers who opt for the Brazilian can saunter beachside confidently.
