Owner Gina Ginsburg—a jet pilot and entrepreneur—pioneered the in-home blowout with a select roster of clients. Her clientele mushroomed, so she opened The Hair Bar that, much like the Michelin man’s dream board, is dedicated to blowouts and glo makeup applications. Armed with paraben-free Kevin Murphy and MoroccanOil products, Gina and her stylists fan hair into one of six styles, from straight and sleek 'dos to loose beach waves and soft curls. The service menu also includes whimsical extensions, which upgrade locks with everything from human hair to tinsel, and blowout add-ons, such as scalp massages or MoroccanOil hydrating masks with aromatherapy.
Gina stays true to the shop’s roots by occasionally dispatching stylists to perform blowouts at homes, but the bright, spacious space offers a welcoming alternative. Accents in the form of fresh flowers and end tables pop against a backdrop of dazzling white walls and marble counters where guests can while away appointments watching romantic comedies on flat screens, playing Angry Birds on the salon’s iPads, and drinking complimentary wine, champagne, or mimosas. The simple yet chic space sets the stage for parties complete with drinks, brunch blowouts, and The Hair Bar’s signature service.
The technicians at The Body Sculpt Xpress specialize in ultrasound-cavitation body sculpting, a noninvasive technique that’s popular in Europe and Australia. Rising to fame in the United States, the treatment, featured on the Dr. Oz show, uses ultrasound waves to break down fat cells, whose contents are them removed from the body through natural metabolic processes. The techs customize treatments based on the thickness of fat and its distribution throughout the body. Their other services include massage therapy, vibration therapy, which causes a body to burn fat while standing still, and radiofrequency skin tightening.
The professionals at Studio 49 utilize only the highest quality skincare and beauty products, customizing all treatments toward each client's individual needs. Choose from one of the seven different facials ($50–$90) and relax as a professional esthetician pampers your skin with Phytoceane marine products to naturally hydrate and cleanse the skin or PCA skin products to aid with acne, aging, and sun damage. Waxing services ($15–$75) are available for men and women seeking solace in smooth surfaces, as well as professional makeup applications ($45) or lessons ($70), enabling aspiring face artists to paint their mugs to perfection.
The stylists at Lady B Salon tame any mane, from coarse or curly hair to straight, colorful strands. And for the past 15 years they’ve been crafting inventive, intricate hairstyles shaped by weaves, microbraiding, hair-coloring, and relaxer techniques. The team can enhance preexisting styles with extensions or tree braiding—a Lady B specialty that safely braids the hair closer to the scalp—or cover up the hair loss that often stems from alopecia, chemical damage, or wearing hats made out of velcro.
