At The Laser Lounge Spa, a local family-owned company, certified physician's assistant and spa director Jonathan Sigg and his team of beauty and medical technicians care about more than just skincare. They also aim to keep clients comfortable, diminishing cellulite with noninvasive SmoothShapes technology and curbing hair growth with the Candela GentleLase system, which features a Dynamic Cooling Device to regulate skin temperature. In the tranquil, pale blue reception area, guests stay serene in sleek, white couches adjacent to a fireplace. There, they can sip a cold beverage from the cooler, listen to the trickling water fountain, and sing gargled responses to it.
Amid the metal siding and slate-grey hues of its industrial-inspired space, Bombshells Salon beautifies clients with a panoply of professional services. The stylists specialize in color treatments, decorating strands with subtle highlights or adding bold hues, along with crafting flattering styles with custom cuts and flatiron-styling services. Men can even find a service to suit them, from professional barbering to chest waxing. Styling packages are also available, such as the women's pinup package with eyebrow waxing, or the men’s pompadour package, which includes a scalp massage.
The mug shots say it all. Barber Zaffa is 5'11" and Mike is 6’; both can sculpt a mean crew cut. And then there's owner Tony, who is 5'10", and doing hard time for looking good. Goodfellas House of Barbers invites patrons to "get clipped" with mafia haircut packages such as The Godfather, The Don, and The Wise Guy. Some additional offers you can't refuse: straight-razor shaves with hot lather and the barbershop's large inventory of retail cigars.
The experienced beauty mavens at Salon Robert Ryan provide head-to-toe pampering with a bounty of hair, nail, skin, and massage services and professional products. Perk up lackluster locks with a cut and style for women ($40) or men ($22), which includes a scalp-stimulating shampoo and a complimentary beverage such as a glass of wine or a jug of supermodels' tears. The savvy stylists help faces reach their full potential with an arch-accentuating brow wax ($12) or a makeup application and lesson ($30), during which face-painting apprentices learn professional techniques. Prepare nails for elegant events or upscale garage sales with an exfoliating manicure ($25), or ease muscle aches with a full-body one-hour massage ($70).
The beauty experts at Brow Art specialize in flattering facial features with threading services and eyelash extensions. Using a thin cotton filament, they groom and shape eyebrows into artful arches or tidy drawbridges. This thread can also whisk stray hairs away from upper lips, cheeks, and chins. Synthetic, silk, and mink lash extensions adhere directly to natural lashes for a dramatic look that doesn't need extra mascara or makeup.
Located inside Pure Elements Salon, licensed massage therapist Cynthia Etienne works to relieve tension and bodily aches. When relaxing her clients, she customizes each massage to accommodate an infinite number of body types, like a maker of sweaters for snowflakes. And because she operates at Pure Elements Salon, she uses all organic and natural massage oils and creams.
