At Just Glamorous Salon & Boutique, clients, and more specifically, their unique beauty and style needs, come first. That’s why, with every haircut, clients also receive a shampoo and blowout style; why the Kertain smoothing treatment is designed to keep locks sleek for up to three months; and why owner and stylist Rachel Peluso frequently journeys to fashion-savvy NYC to stock the salon’s boutique.
In addition to hair services, the staff also beautifies clients with specialty makeup and waxing services, whether it’s for the big wedding day or the big welding day, which involves a lot of molten metal and, thankfully, no one wearing highly flammable gowns.
Arch Salon is salon offering a variety of beauty services. Here, licensed aestheticians carefully twist cotton thread around hair on the eyebrows and face, rapidly removing it at the root, and perform underarm, leg, and Brazilian waxes. Clients can also come in for signature facials, meticulously applied eyelash extensions, and detailed henna tattoos.
Therapeutic ingredients from the natural world are the key to treatments at Lotus Massage and Skin Care. Aestheticians work out physical and emotional tension by massaging aromatherapeutic oils into the skin, and they cocoon bodies in warm mud infused with crushed rose petals. Shankara facials and waxing sessions keep skin looking smooth and youthful.
Kelly Rae leads the trio of staff members at her namesake salon, inspiring the whole crew with her advanced Paul Mitchell color training and cutting skills. Accompanied by fellow stylist Lesley Darling, both transform their clients' coifs with highlights, keratin smoothing treatments, and formal hairstyles. Nail tech Tina Mone, who's been beautifying hands for more than 10 years, applies chip-resistant Shellac and Gelish polishes as well as soothes palms with aromatherapy massages that relieve tension after high-fiving competitions. The salon also sells hand-painted wine and martini glasses, helping clients to continue to treat themselves once at home.
At the recently opened Christopher Brian Salon, a certified master colorist oversees cranial transformations with haircuts and highlights, and a beauty professional smoothes facial terrains with an arsenal of waxing services. A wash rids hair of oil before a professional mane mowing molds tresses into a face-framing style. Then a styled blow-dry keeps styles from getting soggy, and a gloss treatment makes hair shine brighter than a disco ball covered in crisco. Instead of the wash and gloss treatment, patrons may opt to stripe select strands in their choice of shade with a partial foil highlight. Alternatively, clients can banish unwanted whiskers from upper-lips and eyebrows with three full visage waxes, which may be redeemed over multiple visits to stunt the growth of future facial forests.
Salon owner Shannon Santagato has vivid memories of when, as a young girl, her grandmother would squeeze her cheeks and say "Faccia bella, Shannon." The term, which means "beautiful face" in Italian, stuck with her, and today it graces the sign outside of her Paul Mitchell Focus Salon. It's a fitting touch since Shannon and her staff strive to make clients feel just as beautiful as her grandmother did for her as a child. But they’re not just pinching cheeks. As Paul Mitchell trained stylists, they know how to snip the locks of men, women, and children into attractive styles. They also flex their muscles by providing color and straightening treatments and by bench-pressing bags of hair clippings at the end of the day.
