Chains of papery, white disks surround ceiling lamps at Element Salon and Spa and scatter golden light over the mod, spacious studio. A black-and-white color scheme permeates the space, which houses a row of stand-alone styling stations that resemble the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey, but with more hairspray. In this space, stylists update hairdos with cuts and coloring treatments, and aestheticians and nail techs tuck into quieter corners for waxes, facials, and mani-pedis. In the waiting area, flat-screen televisions roll footage of fashion shows as iPads entertain patrons who await appointments.
For more than 30 years, the staff at Giambieri Coloring Spa has dedicated their work to improving the hair and skin of their clients with cuts, coloring, and variety of facial treatments. Each specialist harnesses their own individual creativity and combines it with training in the latest spa products and techniques to create looks that are designed to fit your specific personality and favorite houseplant. The studio’s elegant space, decked out in polished hardwoods and homey accents, proves to be a suitable setting for Giambieri's equally elegant nail services and facials.
Opulent chandeliers hang from the ceiling, reflecting light off the gilded mirrors that decorate Jolie Toi Salon & Spa. Clients can recline on the leopard-print sofa in the waiting area before having their hair tousled, snipped, and braided into Celtic knots by owner-stylist Charbel Mousallem. With 15 years of styling experience in London, Lebanon, and the United States, Charbel?s haircuts, conditioning treatments, and professional styling have enhanced the heads of celebrities such as Elton John as well as contestants on America?s Next Top Model. Aesthetician Sylwia Gorzkowska rounds out the spa?s beautifying services and brings 10 years of experience to the table, having worked with the renowned Elemis and AmorePacific skincare companies. Her cleansing facials and waxing services have spruced up the faces of celebrities such as Tiki Barber and have found their way onto the printed pages of Vogue and Elle.
