Under the leadership of a 37-year industry veteran, the stylists and aestheticians at Fortunato’s European Hair Design revamp and renew clients with a combination of nail, hair, waxing, and massage services. The hair whisperers wield Eufora International products as they craft curls, tame frizz, and maintain dreadlocks with the same level of love that cowboys show their lassos. Alternatively, the salon’s nail technicians gussy up appendages with gel manicures and nail art, and massage therapists soothe away knots with therapeutic Swedish and deep-tissue strokes.
At Tanning Oasis, bodies bronze within three levels of Ergoline tanning beds or under the precise nozzle of an airbrush device. Using products from Designer Skin, Swedish Beauty, and Supre, Tanning Oasis’s sun-savvy techs can customize a skin-specific tan for their clientele or load shopping bags with tanning accessories. The salon accommodates frequent visitors with monthly and yearly packages, facilitating a healthy glow during the dead of winter and a summer spent living in caves.
From their perch near Syracuse University, Studio FX’s team of hairstylists, nail artists, and wax technicians have beautified locals for more than 35 years. Their specialty hair services include highlights, hair extensions, updos, and Brazilian blowouts, which leave hair sleeker and more manageable for up to five months. Apart from hair, they paint nails, apply make-up, wax, and lengthen eyelashes with extensions.
The friendly staff at Garbo's Salon Spa & Tanning Center works to darken human hides using state-of-the-art UV beds and professional spray-tanning equipment. Clients can walk or sock-slide across hardwood floors to one of three private chambers named for Caribbean locales, where they’ll slip into a bed or booth to bronze under UV light for up to 12 sun-kissed minutes. Alternatively, a professional airbrush tan swiftly tints bodies with beach-ready hues without recourse to coconut-colored Crayolas. In addition, the knowledgeable staff installed at Garbo’s curvaceous brushed-metal reception desk can help answer clients’ bronzing questions or divulge the most ray-stealing tanning pose.
At Solar Flare Tanning, the high-pressure bulbs of Chronos and Power 4 U tanning beds warm away pale skin hues and impart bodies with necessary Vitamin D amid beach-inspired décor. The trio of sessions affords tanners 12-minute stints under the lights of a Chronos bed, which gifts epidermises enough color to convince their owners they recently were stranded on a desert island. Meanwhile, in the Power 4 U tanning bed, a sextuplet of 15-minute sessions leaves the skin more radiant and beautiful than Cleopatra wearing a dress made of glow sticks. Both packages offer gilders picks from a selection of lotions, clothes, and accessories, with notable lotions by Ed Hardy ($20 for 10 oz.) or JWoww ($20 for 13.5 oz.).
Laurie and Sabatina are experts on complementary colors. They'd have to be, considering the many types of highlights and lowlights they style. The possibilities include classic gold tones that brighten strands, as well as deep browns and caramels for those with darker hair, or those who want their hair to match their coffee. In addition to their meticulous highlighting services, the stylists also administer trims, color treatments, and refreshing shampoos.
