Educated stylists and aestheticians team up at Amaré Hair Salon to enkindle natural radiance from scalp to toe with a spate of spa services and Cures by Avancé products. Depart from humdrum epidermal regimes with the nearly one-hour deep-cleansing facial designed to purge cluttered pores as it hydrates and brightens complexions. Pamperers lift makeup and fake nose-moustache spectacles before permeating visages with a cleansing milk and sea-mist toner, then they analyze naked mugs while brushing on an algae-based purifier. Next, vapor permeates countenances for 10 minutes to seal in the effects of a clarifying cream and restoring elixir while doters massage shoulders into a state more relaxed than a kitten chugging chamomile tea. A final extraction expunges unwanted invaders before a custom mask preps skin for a nourishing balm and revitalizing under-eye concoction.
Hairology's Redken- and Keratin-certified stylists shape, color, and smooth coiffures with professional products. After a verbal consultation about the patron's desired mane shape, skilled staffers suds, rinse, and snip locks into fetching styles and blow-dry heads for formal dinner dates or informal poker parties with visiting royalty. During the 60- to 90-minute coloring sessions, high-quality Redken products transform locks with rich hues or strategically placed highlights.
Instead of asking patrons to go out of their way and drive to a massage studio, the licensed massage therapists of Aesthetic Bodyworks Mobile Massage relieve tension through sessions in the comfort of each client's home. Beyond traditional Swedish and deep-tissue modalities, they can rejuvenate the senses with aromatherapy essential oils and erase chronic aches with Japanese finger-pressure techniques during shiatsu massages. The team also provides the relaxing entertainment during Ladies Night In parties or the Mega Party package, where therapists dole out 5- to 10-minute chair massages for a minimum of 50 people or one 50-person conga line.
Vintage House of Hair’s stylists have both a sense of humor and a sense of hospitality. So while they style their clients’ hair, they serve complimentary cocktails and encourage the kind of laughter normally reserved for the times when one sitcom character points out another sitcom character’s failure to be a perfect human. Encased in a deep mocha frame, the full-length mirrors that lean against cream- or dark orange-hued walls catch all the mirthful action. They also reflect stylists rendering trendy updos and perms or removing unwanted hair with facial waxing services.
With just two chairs in the cutting room and two basins in the color and wash room, the stylists at Towheads Hair Studio ensure the place is never too crowded. This allows them ample room to maneuver their elbows when sculpting chic new looks or slathering heads with professional Redken products. But the studio’s polished hardwood floor reflects more than just hair flying from heads—precision waxing services sharpen eyebrows and clear upper lips of unwanted fuzz.
Ever since hosting a party for the opening of Salon Bella Amici earlier this year, owner Mary Ann Perfetti has worked toward creating a welcoming environment where clients can ask for anything from traditional updos to hot-pink highlights. Advanced treatments include color correction and keratin treatments, and in adjoining spa rooms independent practitioners perform massages, waxes, facials, and presumably a lot of door opening and closing.
