For the past decade, Kelly Beaudry has honed her hairstyling techniques by learning the latest trends and tips at coloring shows and workshops held all along the East Coast. After making the trip from Boston, Kelly settled into Revive Salon and Spa, where she revamps hair with Goldwell, Joico, and Affinage hair dyes. In addition, Kenra haircare products and keratin treatments leave manes shinier and smoother than the freshly polished axes lumberjacks always bring to formal events.
Revive’s space evokes a swanky New York loft, with modern lights that radiate overhead onto plush velvet furniture and charcoal-gray walls of stacked stone. Amid these chic accents, skilled stylist Nikki Daly sculpts face-framing layers and paints strands with Redken color products. The salon offers not only haircare, but also a select list of spa services such as restorative mani-pedis, therapeutic massages, and deep-cleansing facials. Clients may also request a wax to remove unwanted fuzz from eyebrows or dandelions growing from earlobes.
Though Stephanie Bailey once studied with skincare giants—Dr. Murad and Dr. Obagi of their eponymous medical-grade lines—her heart wasn't in it. "[I] just couldn't pull away from what I love most, which is skincare for the hands and feet," she says. Once she realized that, Bailey developed her own waterless pedicure style that eschews traditional water jets in her pedicures to eliminate the concern of cross contamination and accidental foot drowning. After beautifying the digits of cheerleaders from the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks, she moved to Idaho and applied her 28 years of experience to Nails by Stephanie at Revive Salon.
The beauty mavens at Earthly Beauty Organic Salon pamper tresses, faces, and bodies with an arsenal of services, using mostly organic products. Gain instant gratification by vanquishing split ends with a haircut and style ($20 for men; $30 for women), or emphasize the nose’s best angle with a professional dusting of mineral make-up ($35). The Signature Facial mollycoddles epidermises with fruit- and vegetable-flavored products to confront individual concerns, such as acne or aging ($65 for 60 min.; $80 for 75 min.), and a 45-minute Manual Dermabrasion resurfaces pores and evicts fine lines, black heads, and wrinkles ($75). A lineup of massage treatments includes a 90-minute rub-down using hot and cold stones with the La Stone treatment ($65), or a 60- or 90-minute Swedish kneading ($45–$60) to soothe aches and teach muscles to relax and demur when dared to pick up a two-ton tricycle. Once nestled between the salon’s vibrant orange walls, guests can sip organic coffee or tea as their eyes gallivant colorful paintings, soft candles, and elegant floral arrangements.
Amid the white columns and contemporary chandeliers of Flawless Salon, nail technician Sarah Banks pampers and beautifies clients’ hands and feet. Sarah combines hand and foot massages with paraffin dips, exfoliation, and moisturizers to soften skin. She then expertly grooms cuticles, files nails into interesting shapes, and applies traditional or gel nail polish.
