Behind Alandre Salon & Day Spa's curved, marbled reception desk, internationally trained beauticians lavish guests with cosmetic, med-spa, and salon treatments. Almond-colored walls surround private treatment rooms, and thickly padded chairs cosset patrons as they receive pedicures. Within the Alandre fold is platform artist and salon partner Rajaei Haddad. Having been the ambassador and educator for L'Oreal Paris and Shwartscoff Germany for over a decade, and the owner of a prestigious Middle East salon, he performs artistry of formal styling, precision cutting, coloring and more. Haddad specializes in updos and makeup, especially for bridal arrangements.
The beauty squad at Bloomfield Esthetics glams up guests with facials, permanent makeup, hair removal, and mani-pedis. They'll tailor each European deep-cleansing facial to your individual skin type and wipe the pores clean with all-natural products. Alternatively, the aromatherapy facials use essential oils and an acupressure massage to soothe sensitive skin. The spa specialist, Joanne, has more than 28 years of experience in applying permanent eyeliner and lip color. The applications will stay put 24 hours a day, even as you sleep, shower, or jog through a car wash. The team can also whisk away unwanted hair using traditional waxing techniques and electrolysis.
Seasoned aestheticians, makeup technicians, and licensed massage therapists can be found throughout the tranquil halls of L'Aryola Salon and European Spa. The building's simple earth tones and abstract artwork melt into the background as clients slip into a state of calm brought on by customized facials, some including serums with natural vitamins and plants. Massages and body wraps soothe exteriors in rooms that are illuminated by candlelight and full of intriguing aromas, much like an apothecary who has been set on fire. Permanent-makeup sessions add pigments that can augment natural features for years to come.
Aloria Skin Care's owner has been an Aesthetician for more than 15 years, and in that time has earned 33 certificates. She puts all of them to good use inside her skincare escape, where she combines her knowledge of skin science to help clients achieve a wide range of cosmetic goals. She offers customized facials that address wrinkles and fine lines, laser hair-removal treatments to permanently remove unwanted body follicles, and permanent makeup and lash and brow tinting to improve overall beauty. During her treatments, she utilizes her own signature line of Aloria Skincare products, which contain no parabens or formaldehyde. Other services include body waxing and teeth whitening, the latter of which to remove stains from drinking coffee or eating wine corks.
Though true perfection is unattainable, the technicians at Beauty Kingdom take pride in helping clients get as close as possible to their aesthetic ideal. Staffers target unwanted hair with the LightSheer Duet, a vacuum-assisted laser system whose capability to treat large body areas, shortens the duration of hair-removal treatments. Aestheticians tend to complexions during facials that target dead skin, blackheads, and acne, and permanent-makeup artists line lips and fill eyebrows with a variety of colors that won?t smear, smudge, or melt in the spring.
The stylists at R Place Salon skillfully trim tresses and artfully highlight locks to capture the sun-streaked look of summer or the moonlit look of a long Alaskan winter. Keratin treatments tame frizzy, unmanageable hair, while perms add bounce and body to straight strands. Massage therapists on staff knead tension out of muscles as nail techs primp and polish nails with mani-pedis.
