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 Makeup Bar Salon may be named for its chair-lined countertops that brim with signature cosmetics, but its staff of stylists and aestheticians brings much more than just makeup artistry to the table. Supervised by Lisa Severino, a makeup artist with more than 20 years of experience, the salon’s many claims to fame include a seaweed facial that was a 2011 Pick by InStyle magazine and a blow-dry bar with a choice of three styling options: tousled, straight, or Louis XIV. Meanwhile, eyebrow specialists flaunt years of over-eye artistry in brow-shaping sessions that both correct past tweezing blunders and ensure flattering contours when brows grow out. Clients can put a bow on their spa and salon services with exclusive cosmetics, whether the salon’s own or the feng-shui-inspired Color Elements line designed by Severino herself.
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.
Beyond Hair Salon and Spa stays true to its name with an array of services that beautify tresses as well as fingers, faces, and other areas that aren’t traditionally classified as hair. In the salon—which was featured in an episode of the television show Tabatha's Salon Takeover—stylists enliven locks with haircuts and starburst highlights or outfit heads with custom wig caps, full weaves, and lace-front wig infusions. In addition to revamping ‘dos, the spa staffers coat fingernails and toenails with Gelish polish, dress up faces with professional makeup applications, thread eyebrows into neat arches, and refresh complexions with facials.
On Wednesdays, the staff focuses their pampering efforts on mothers with their Mommy Makeovers, treating the spawn-saddled ladies to a manicure, hair styling, and eyebrow waxing or threading.
The team at Clique Salon and Spa sees no reason to visit a spa only to stress over which services to try. That's why a spa coordinator is always on hand to help guests navigate the spa menu's cornucopia of aromatic massages, oatmeal pedicures, and Aveda facials. After discussing the client's skin type and any other considerations, the coordinator will be able to suggest just the treatment or spa package for unwinding.
Elsewhere inside Clique's vibrant, yellow and orange salon space, stylists await with shears, color, special conditioners, and those big capes they use to make clients feel like superheroes. In addition to cuts and special-occasion updos, the hair artists are adept with weave extensions, cornrows, twists, and locks.
