Shear Indulgence's pulchritude professionals pride themselves on keeping guests happy by utilizing high-quality products, offering thorough consultations before any service, and giving back to the community. During facials, the aestheticians utilize Repechage, a high-quality skincare line made from nutrient-rich seaweed and botanicals, and during coiffing services, the stylists, who regularly attend classes to keep their skills as sharp as their shears, always conduct thorough consultations before crafting alternative or classic styles. Shear Indulgence further pleases patrons by offering free cuts for chemotherapy patients, discounts for military personnel and senior citizens, and a salon credit for those who recycle empty professional-product bottles at the salon instead of tossing them into a wood chipper.
Blissful Beauty Bar owner Amber Leigh Cole has worked her glamorizing magic on faces and bodies across the country, bringing the success of her original Salt Lake City eye bar––Blissfuleigh Iced––to sister locations in New York. Amber is a certified eyelash-extension specialist and a master aesthetician; her employees all boast similar certifications, and undergo an intensive three-month training before getting the go ahead to enhance exteriors with microdermabrasion, slimming body wraps, and airbrush tanning. House-specialty eyelash extensions are applied individually to the natural lashes, making lash lines look fuller and flirtier without dressing them up in mascara or low-cut cocktail dresses. The team can also dip lashes in a hard coating that adds drama and thickness for four–six weeks, applying it to natural lashes or as an extra enhancer to bottom extensions.
Simpaticos Salon & Spa maintains a welcoming atmosphere with complimentary bottled water, coffee, and tea—fitting complements to the salon's tempting menu of precision cuts, foil highlights, and coloring services. The spa end of the space offers four facials, including one infused with seaweed, as well as raindrop-therapy treatments, which help align the body through a combination of aromatherapy, reflexology, and massage techniques. To layer on the relaxation, Simpaticos also extends complimentary WiFi to clients who prefer to update their online profile pictures after each and every snip of the shears.
