Iluminada Studio owner Sobeida Hernandez draws upon more than 18 years of experience in the beauty industry to pamper guests from the soothing confines of her polished light-filled studio. Her team of skilled coiffurists and aestheticians will begin by tending to tired talon and toe tips with a manicure and pedicure, which includes a paraffin wax treatment to seal in moisture and prevent seasonal rusting. Once phalanges have been precisely polished, errant head strands will be perfectly positioned with a Promotional blow-dry that will leave them ready to face a world of troublesome breezes and rabid dryer sheets. As part of the service, customers who arrive early will also receive a complimentary shoulder massage, leaving them relaxed and ready to accept their newfound radiance.
Christopher, "The Man Behind the Chair" and the artistic director of Salon Salon, calls on his three decades of professional experience to lead his staff, encouraging hairdressers to approach hairdressing as an art form. The salon’s team pursues this goal, aided by the training tucked into their tool belts beside shears, clippers, and curling irons.
The term "wedding hair" may conjure images of updos, but that's not all it can mean. Under the care of the Up Do's and Eye Do's team, it can be whatever you want, from half-up, half-down styles to a chic blowout or ringlets for a flower girl. Audrey, the team's lead hair stylist, crafts a diverse array of just such wedding-appropriate hairdos. While she tends to locks, her business partner Cindy—a makeup artist and licensed medical aesthetician—subtly enhances the wedding party's features with products from MAC, Bobbi Brown, and Smashbox.
While the duo's main focus is on weddings, they also style clients for other special occasions and introduce kids to the joys of the spa experience. At their children's birthday parties, little ones get their hair and makeup done and even get to wear clip-in hair extensions, a more practical and temporary hair-extending alternative to wearing hats full of Miracle-Gro.
For more than 30 years, the staff at Giambieri Coloring Spa has dedicated their work to improving the hair and skin of their clients with cuts, coloring, and variety of facial treatments. Each specialist harnesses their own individual creativity and combines it with training in the latest spa products and techniques to create looks that are designed to fit your specific personality and favorite houseplant. The studio’s elegant space, decked out in polished hardwoods and homey accents, proves to be a suitable setting for Giambieri's equally elegant nail services and facials.
Surrounded by the cool tones of Salon 141’s icelandic blue walls and chocolate wood-framed mirrors, stylists cultivate face-flattering cuts tailored to the client's lifestyle. Helmed by stylist Suzzanne and manicurist Lisa, each who draw on 18 years of expertise, the team performs Keratin treatments and Brazilian blowouts to straighten frazzled manes, while experienced aestheticians wax away unwanted hair, revitalize visages with custom facials, or foster a UV-free glow with a full-body airbrush tan. Clients can also relax as a certified manicurist spoils nails with mani-padis, Shellac polish, and oral histories of little piggies and their entrepreneurial exploits.
Dark wooden floors stretch across Suzanne’s Hair and Colour Room, contrasting against the gold mirror frames, stone accents, and navy blue walls. Within this carefully designed space, stylists carefully design new hairstyles for both men and women. With DevaCurl products in hand, the team shapes manes into flattering styles, adds bounce and volume to flat strands, and enhances color with glosses, highlights, and lowlights. The stylists also lengthen short ‘dos with Great Lengths hair extensions, which are made out of real human hair or the hair of a mannequin that was human in a past life. Guests can also visit the salon’s aestheticians for brow shaping, eyelash tinting, or full makeup application.
