Owner Maggie DiFalco's shear-wielding staff mollycoddles visitors with an array of sumptuous hair and spa services. Tired tresses are first tickled awake with a deep-conditioning treatment, wherein a coat of conditioning cream slips beneath cuticles to strengthen hairs from within. Next, a five- to 10-minute scalp massage delights lonely domepieces as a stylist's pulsing fingers melt away memories of your first day on the zoo's walrus-shaving team. A 20-minute warming stint under the salon’s heater polishes off the process, locking in moisturizers and nutrients and leaving mops lustrous.
The friendly stylists at Jigsaw Hair Salon wield a wide range of Keune products as they customize hair services for women, men, teens, and children. Clients can watch their transformation play out in each station's teardrop-shaped mirror as stylist refresh color, straighten stands with Keratin and Japanese Chi treatments, and twirl tresses into elegant updos for special occasions. Within the professional yet relaxed atmosphere, clients are also beautified with French tip mani-pedis or makeup applications that show them how to apply cosmetics to highlight their best facial features or most regrettable tattoo.
When not giving their undivided attention to their clients, the salon's team spends time giving back to the community by participating in children's charity events including toy drives.
“Non-invasive” is the focus at The Body Shop MediSpa, where clients can find a trio of treatments to change their bodies without the trappings of surgery. Lipo-laser treatments help to minimize fat cells, smoothing skin around problem areas during quick, 30-minute sessions. As a follow-up to lipo laser or as a treatment all its own, power-plate therapy sends waves of energy across the body, causing muscles to quickly contract in an effort to boost circulation and help ferry away toxins. Finally, The Body Shop MediSpa's mineral and vitamin supplement program further works to reduce toxins by strengthening immune systems and promoting lymphatic drainage.
A deep love of her work has kept licensed therapist Monica Gonda practicing bodywork for more than 14 years, and it is this positive energy that emanates from her fingertips during each session. In her repertoire of seven massage modalities, lomi lomi—loving hands in Hawaiian—stands out for its use of the forearms to send waves of relaxation into deep layers of muscle without attracting beach bums. Monica also practices a lymphatic-drainage technique that notably reduces swelling caused by fluid buildup in connective tissue. The most unique therapy is the crystal massages. A blend of body and energy work, warm semiprecious stones bathe acupressure points in soothing heat and redirect energy flows to achieve mental clarity or emotional well-being.
Monica awakens senses with organic tea and chocolates and can expand olfactory pleasure with her nuanced understanding of how geranium, lemongrass, and clare sage influence mood through sensory and monetary payoffs. Monica extends the reach of her goodwill by donating 5% of her profits to cancer research, an issue close to her heart because she practices oncology massage for lung-cancer patients.
