Whether with clippers or scissors, Gregory Rossi demonstrates a deft barber's touch that he's honed for nearly 20 years. At Rossi's Hair Studio, he and his brother Nicholas tap into their industry experience to provide cuts, shaves, and other hair services for both male and female clients. Men can polish up their looks with a standard or buzz cut, hot shaves, and even men's color camo services, which can conceal grey hairs or toy soldiers hiding in parts. Rossi's also offers women's cuts in addition to highlight, coloring, and waxing treatments.
A team of doctors and technicians use lasers and other clinical techniques to realize clients' cosmetic goals. They spotlight wrinkles, blemishes, hair, and varicose veins with lasers to whisk such offending particles off of bodies and faces. Waxing, too, fells follicular shrubbery. To slough away materials that cause facial dullness, such as dead skin or a papier-mâché mask worn two years too many, the staff administers peels, facials, and microdermabrasion.
As a young girl, Luz Mancebo took great pride in her lustrous head of hair. She gingerly combed out tangles every morning and conditioned her locks until they glimmered in the bright Dominican Republic sun. After taking home numerous first-place prizes at hairstyling competitions in Puerto Rico, Luz packed her bags and headed to the United States with dreams of opening her own salon.
Today, the skilled stylist brings her talent, determination, and years of experience to Mimada Beauty Bazaar. Amid the cheerful pink and purple walls of the luminous salon, Luz, her daughter Markely, and a team of specialists administer a sweeping range of beautifying services—from hair weaves to waxing services to mani-pedis. The versatile stylists accommodate all manner of hair type, including curls riddled with stubborn knots, long waves damaged by hair dye, and beehives engulfed in flames.
The Makeup Bar Salon may be named for its chair-lined countertops that brim with signature cosmetics, but its staff of stylists and aestheticians brings much more than just makeup artistry to the table. Supervised by Lisa Severino, a makeup artist with more than 20 years of experience, the salon’s many claims to fame include a seaweed facial that was a 2011 Pick by InStyle magazine and a blow-dry bar with a choice of three styling options: tousled, straight, or Louis XIV. Meanwhile, eyebrow specialists flaunt years of over-eye artistry in brow-shaping sessions that both correct past tweezing blunders and ensure flattering contours when brows grow out. Clients can put a bow on their spa and salon services with exclusive cosmetics, whether the salon’s own or the feng-shui-inspired Color Elements line designed by Severino herself.
