Under the direct supervision of Dr. Alicia Jones, a graduate of the University of Columbia, the licensed staffers at Reflections administer a variety of aesthetic services, ranging from laser hair removal and microdermabrasion to chemical peels and Botox injections. They also treat problematic skin aesthetics, busting stubborn acne breakouts, freeing legs of unsightly spider veins, and easing the effects of hyperpigmentation.
At O’Haira’s Salon & Day Spa, skilled aestheticians refresh visages with one of eight custom facials. Like a first date, each session begins with a friendly greeting and comprehensive skin analysis designed to better personalize pampering sessions. Sizing up their options, clients can elect 90-minutes of pore-clearing power during a ProZyme clearing facial or fend off aging with a Youthful Renewal facial with an alpha-hydroxyl peel to help boost collagen and elastin production. Specially formulated options also grace the menu, including a rosacea treatment and the enlighten facial, which targets hyperpigmentation with a two-step exfoliation process.
Education is the focus of this studio where stylists remain knowledgeable about all hair types. From stylish cuts to chemical-reshaping treatments, they help clients select looks that flatter their features. In addition to expounding healthy habits at the salon, the team regularly posts haircare tips on its Facebook page.
Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, men there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Clients sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, road to recovery facials, complete with a cleansing and hot towels.
