The licensed aestheticians at Aiyana Spa rejuvenate world-weary visages and unbundle tightly wound bodies with personalized care. At the beginning of each treatment, specialists consult with clients to customize facials to their individual needs or desire to look like Rembrandt. Technicians will then spruce up face parts, evicting oil and impurities with Dermalogica, Dermaquest, and Sense products before locking in moisture and cleanliness with a treatment mask. Alternatively, massage therapists soothe stressed backs with Swedish massages and organic oils. The alternating strokes of gentle and heavy pressure pummel knotted muscles, relieving tension while stimulating circulation and coaxing sighs of relaxation from freshly unfurled frames.
Hair can be difficult to maintain, especially when it's your go-to paint brush. That's where Signature Style Hair Salon comes in. Skilled stylists educated at renowned schools such as Paul Mitchell and Cortiva can sculpt voluminous layers or decorate strands with a Redken color treatment. The salon also offers beautification beyond the scalp with nailcare and specialty waxes to nix unwanted hair.
Instructors trained in the Paul Mitchell teaching method introduce students to the art and technique of hair design, color services, and makeup application at Pulse Beauty Academy. Their immersive style of education allows advanced students to gain experience and expertise at an on-site salon, where locals drop in for cut, color, and styling services. Each service is divided by phase one students, phase two’s honor students, and phase nine’s ninjas. In addition to churning out stylists, the school demonstrates its inner beauty by supporting causes such as Habitat for Humanity and the Andrew Gomez Dream Foundation.
Beyond Belle Vie Salon‘s brick façade, a trio of stylists cuts, colors, and texturizes hair at marble-topped styling stations. Honey-colored hardwood floors line the studio’s interior, creating an elegant backdrop where clients can sit back, relax, and count backwards from 1,000 as the styling team performs a slew of hair and waxing services.
Couture Laser & Skin’s founder and director, Dr. Anshul Gambhir, received his medical training at the renowned Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. With his team of aestheticians, he has performed more than 100,000 nonsurgical, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, ranging from chemical peels to permanent makeup. To diminish wrinkles, he uses dermal fillers or CO2 lasers that resurface skin as they tighten it, and micro-incision liposuction allows him to sculpt and contour bodies without a single surgical stitch or shrink ray. He also harnesses the radiofrequency energy of the Thermage device and uses it to rebuild and remodel collagen, and he scares away unwanted hair with FDA-approved lasers.
