Though Salon Tuscany's decor is an elegant nod to the Old World—from ceramic pillars crowned with indoor plants to the heavy, gold-framed mirrors that reflect the salon's cranberry-and-gold color scheme—the hairstyles its staff produce are anything but dated. In fact, owners Rick and Dawne Guay's main mission is to provide clients with current yet affordable hairstyles.
To create modern 'dos, stylists employ products from brands such as Redken, Aquage, and Soma, as well as 100% human hair NEO extensions. Salon Tuscany's crew also aims to beautify clients with shellac manicures, which coat nails with 50+ different colors of chip-resistant polish, and with Ardell eyelash extensions. In an effort to stay connected to the community, Salon Tuscany supports charity events such as leukemia fundraisers, and it takes the time to doll-up local celebrities, including Ms. New Hampshire America 2012 contestant, Jennifer Dickson.
Not one harsh chemical or animal byproduct is found inside Venus Avani Eco Salon & Organic Beauty Bar’s products. Each hair, skin, and nail line is eco-friendly, organic, vegan, free of parabens, SLS, and sulphates, and never tested on animals or robots. To keep in line with their environmentally friendly standards, the salon's staff also recycles all paper, plastics, and swept hair that would normally be tossed; short hair is donated to help with oil-spill clean-ups. Long hair that's cut is donated to a charity of the clients’ choosing.
Certified nail technician Christina Andrews at Salon Tuscany dresses up fingers and toes with vivid shades of polish. She offers detailed manicure and pedicure services, with a specialty in shellac, acrylics, and fills. She works alongside the rest of the salon's staff, led by Rick and Dawne Guay. They offer NEO Hair Extensions (made from 100% human hair), stylish haircuts, color and texturizing treatments, and glamorous faux lashes.
