Aesthetician Kris Guglielmo doles out spa services from a corner of Fortunato's European Hair Design that operates under the moniker Nouvelle Skin Spa. As Eufora-trained stylists curl, trim, and color hair in the salon area, Kris beautifies complexions with permanent makeup, skincare, and waxing services. During customized facials, Kris employs exfoliating scrubs and chemical peels to remove traces of dead skin cells and dissolve grime. Nourishing masks finish off services, hydrating faces more thoroughly then a broken diver's helmet.
Trinity Salon & Spa co-owner Cher sometimes perfects the makeup and hairdos of models at haute fashion shoots, but she spends most of her time making sure her regular clients get the same star treatment. Her business partner Candi shares the same passion for high-fashion styling, holding certifications from companies including Rusk and Matrix Hair Color. The pair have put together a team of salon stylists who snip hair into follicular masterpieces and reprogram hair textures. The crew can impart uniform straightness with keratin treatments or massage strands with ground-up Shirley Temple headshots to create billowing curls.
On the spa side, the DiamondTome microdermabrasion reveals fresh, unblemished skin with chips of real diamonds, and medical-grade peels accelerate the skin's exfoliation process. Men can enjoy treatments such as the Pampered Facial, during which aesthetician Nina bolsters handsome looks with a seaweed mud mask, facial massage, warm towels, and a beer to sip. The spa keeps hands and feet of all kinds well-groomed with mani-pedis, and elongates eyelashes, hair, or strap-on Santa Claus beards with realistic extensions.
Craig Milewitz is a licensed massage therapist and reiki master who believes in facilitating a balance between the mind, body, and spirit trough individually tailored massage treatments. He and his team at Onondaga Therapeutic Massage offer a diverse range of treatment options. The rejuvenating face-lift massage uses anti-aging products to relax the muscles in the face and improve the skin’s texture. The shiatsu massage is a Japanese form of bodywork designed to stimulate pressure points to harness the flow of energy throughout the body. Other options include Swedish massage, reflexology, and reiki, all performed with personal attention to the client’s needs.
Floor-to-ceiling windows spill sunlight across Liz Lanza’s contemporary salon, splashing golden rays over high-vaulted ceilings and the sleek track lighting that takes its place once the sun goes down. The day-spa area provides a tranquil retreat where clients can disappear for a focused energy treatment such as the Amethyst quartz-covered Biomat surface, which emits healing far-infrared rays and negative ions that scare ailments away with pessimistic comments on life. Spa-goers can also slide beneath the white linens of a treatment bed as an aesthetician coaxes radiant skin to the surface with traditional European facials and technologically enhanced treatments including Bio-Ultimate Facelift, a combination of microcurrent’s low level energy and the collagen-stimulating infrared rays of an LED photofacial rejuvenation treatment.
Inside Adagio Salon, hickory hardwood floors, oak-trimmed archways, and neutral tones create a space that's both stylish and relaxed—much like the salon's services themselves. The team of expert stylists use Moroccanoil and Kevin Murphy products to design a hairstyle that accentuate a client’s natural features, or they might install hair extensions for some added length. Elsewhere, aesthetician Yvette Remington uses eco-friendly products to target skin damage with several fruit-infused facials, including a pumpkin-peel facial that smells of Halloweens spent hugging every jack-o’-lantern in sight.
