The stylists at Violet’s Salon use Redken hair products to sculpt manes and layer or color locks. Staff members also supplement natural tresses with perms, straightening, or updos for weddings or sittings for a commemorative plate portrait.

Terri Sitto called on more than 24 years of salon and business know-how to open Day Dream Nails & Spa. The facility and its specialists exhibit dedication to beautification, health, and relaxation with services such as waxing, mani-pedis, and facials. The spa can accommodate up to 15 guests for private parties, where visitors can spruce up skin and nails while munching on hors d’oeuvres, sipping adult beverages or soft drinks, and whacking a piñata filled with facial creams.
La Dolce Vita Spa fills its ranks with beauty specialists that combine their specialized expertise to devise a full-body menu of beautifying treatments. Hands and feet find renewal with a variety of therapies, from cooling dollops of spearmint scrub to the ache-melting warmth of hot stones. Ten facials cater to different complexions, with regimes that encourage elasticity with seaweed extract or calm active blemishes with sulfur masks. Meanwhile, stylists untangle tresses with shampoos and cuts, and spa therapists loosen muscles' fancy half-windsors with half- or full-hour massages.
From the wrap-around porch to the mahogany crown molding inside the Victorian building, Aura Salon has a homey feeling. Especially for owner Chris Nadjarian, who actually grew up in the very home that now houses his salon, according to a Patch.com article.

Top Models Salon & Boutique’s hairstyling room resembles a banquet hall: heavy drapes frame columned doors, ornate mirrors line high walls, and chandeliers sparkle overhead. In this regal setting, four nail techs, four hairstylists, and one permanent-makeup artist highlight clients' natural beauty with professional products and stadium floodlights. In addition to performing basic salon services, hairdressers can iron rhinestones to tresses or install feather extensions that withstand heat treatments about as well as natural hair. Jewelry and accessories with studs, rhinestones, and faux pearls populate the onsite boutique.
The much-lauded Studio One Salon offers a plethora of salon and spa services dedicated to de-stressing patrons as well as bettering appearances. Place a face in the care of Studio One Salon for a one-hour basic spa facial that begins with a thorough skin analysis, allowing the aesthetician in charge to tailor a specific treatment for each epidermis. Using Dermalogica products, each visage is cleansed, exfoliated, extracted, masked, hydrated, and, finally, fortified against the everyday onslaught of solar rays and glove-slapping duel challenges. An eyebrow arch eliminates overgrown or out-of-place bristles, tidying up forehead mustaches into two separate, symmetrical features while increasing one’s ability to communicate emotions such as surprise, anger, or “I’ve just been pied by a clown!”
The mother-daughter team behind Rochester Esthetics Body Spa adheres to the motto, “We don’t have clients…we have friends.” They keep their cozy spa as inviting as possible, taking a warm, personal approach when arranging appointments instead of asking clients to weld scheduling requests into a cold piece of steel. Inside treatment rooms, facials counteract oily complexions and stubborn acne, and massages soothe tense and sore muscles. Clients can also clear away unwanted facial and body hair with waxing services and top off treatments with a pedicure or makeup application.
