Northwood Realty Services has helped families find their ideal homes since 1956. Today, their agents turn clients into homeowners all across western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio. Northwood also offers comprehensive real-estate classes?covering law, math, terminology, and licensing?that prepare participants for the Pennsylvania real-estate exam.
Since 1958, the garment gurus at Imperial Cleaners, Inc. have rendered duds spick and span through a full menu of dry-cleaning and restoration services. Owners can drop off possessions ranging from suits and wedding gowns to bedding and draperies for a professional cleaning, an improvement over unprofessional techniques such as gluing your wardrobe to your car and driving it through a car wash. The team also specializes in emergency restoration services, responding quickly to deal with the damage caused by fire, water, and smoke.
Steel City Self Storage lets clients pile away possessions in clean, secure spaces. Tenants stow away furniture or last summer's swimming pool in large 200-square-foot units, whereas economical 50-square-foot units accommodate everything from ski equipment to business documents.
Guardian Storage offers customers a variety of indoor and outdoor storage units that range in size from 5'x5' to 20'x30'. Along with its storage space at locations in Pennsylvania and Colorado, the company offers patrons complimentary use of its carts and dollies and has various packing and moving supplies available for purchase. With the help of a LEED-accredited architect, the facilities implement environmentally conscious practices that include building storage units with partially recycled steel and using heat-reflecting roofs capable of tanning birds' pale underbellies.
Owners and principal members of the stylist team Emilio and Gino corral their decades of experience to create two distinct spaces where clients revel in personalized services. They staff more than 60 aesthetes, each of whom receives focused training on adjusting hair, skin, nail, and massage services to clients’ stated preferences and lifestyle. During and after haircuts, the team uses a house brand of products to style strands and address specific hair problems such as color fading, excessive oil, or naturally occurring pipe cleaners. During facials, the aestheticians home in on what lies below bangs by cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and moisturizing skin, and tension dissipates during therapists' restful massage sessions. The downtown Pittsburgh location also plays host to an elegant serata—a private, chandelier-lit escape where bridal parties can enjoy ultimate relaxation before addressing the fact that their friend is marrying a panda bear.
True to its name, Haven Salon welcomes guests to retreat from the bustling activity of Uptown for pampering services. Along with chic haircuts and color treatments, stylists transform locks into sleek styles with Brazilian blowouts and add length and body with extensions. Dr. Hauschka Signature Facials bring an extra touch of luxury to appointments, and waxing and makeup applications provide the finishing touch. And the team's commitment to rejuvenating clients is more than skin deep?they use only natural, organic products to beautify hair and skin, in keeping with the salon's eco-friendly philosophy.
