Pigalle Salon & MedSpa is equally committed to traditional and high-tech beauty services, so much so that its divided into two parts: the salon and med spa, respectively. In the salon stylists use K?rastase treatments to nourish locks and imbue manes with color and administer Keratin Complex smoothing treatments, relaxers, and Brazilian Blowouts. Aestheticians, on the other hand, cleanse complexions with Image Skincare products, lengthen eyelashes with Xtreme Lashes, and apply organic spray tans to bronze skin without needing to find a casting mold big enough for a person.?
In the futuristic med spa, services rely on cutting-edge technology to deliver treatments, such as microdermabrasion and IPL photofacials. Many treatments even harness the power of lasers, as is the case with its hair-removal treatments and CoolTouch laser treatments, which promote collagen production, improving the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars.
A lively energy fills The Stage Salon, where master stylists and barbers tend to all hair types but excel at working with African American tresses. Women can stop in for quick haircuts fortified by Redken and Clairol products, or unwind in the styling chair as stylist Ebony straightens curls with relaxers and Brazilian blowouts or creates length and volume with professional extensions. Gairyd and Silky Sam, the salon’s resident barbers, clip and trim men’s hair, topping them off with salon-quality gel or pomade. Beyond haircare, The Stage’s staff also outfits nails with eye-catching colors in OPI mani-pedis, waxes unwanted fuzz from entire bodies, and ornaments ears with piercings or gold staples.
To Ms. Haseena, haircare is about more than styling—it’s also about keeping tresses healthy. She does that by using professional haircare products while accomplishing lace weaves, color jobs, intense conditioning treatments, and updos. Skilled in aesthetics, she also shapes brows and applies natural-looking eyelash extensions.
Trim Barber House caters to men of all ages, providing old-fashioned hair services complemented by modern amenities. Opt for a haircuts, and unruly tresses are lathered with sudsy shampoo before being expertly snipped into shipshape. After follicular landscaping is complete, those who choose the first option are expertly conducted into the past with a 30-minute straight-razor shave. Badger-bristle brushes are used to lather overgrown chins with warm, clove-scented shave oil. Next, a sharpened blade glides away stubble, leaving faces as smooth as a compliment from Barry White. Those electing to treat hardworking bodies may enjoy a stress-relieving massage to scare away anxiety masquerading as muscle tissue. The full-body massage spends 60 minutes kneading away worry, leaving frames revitalized and relaxed.
The staples of any morning are a fresh shave and a hot cup of coffee. Both await gentlemen who enter LaJewel Salon, where complimentary cups of joe perk them up for a range of grooming services. Amid the shop's red-and-black decor, skilled barbers trim and clip men's manes, working with any hair type and texture. After preparing faces with a hot towel and a lather, they pare down overgrown whiskers with a straight razor and apply an aftershave moisturizer to prevent uncomfortable razor burn before a long day of taming wild fire ants.
