Whether clients seek hair extensions, mani-pedis, or waxing, they can turn to the expert staff at Elegant Beauty Salon. In business for five years, the salon has an extensive service list that covers hair, skin, and makeup; they even enhance eyes with dramatic faux mink lashes.
As a girl of just 13 or 14, Amita perched in her aunts’ hair salon and watched with fascination as they snipped clients’ tresses. Today, Amita still watches the flash of scissors, but now they are in the hands of skilled stylists in her own salon.
Amita bustles through the shop, mixing honey, sugar, and lemon to create her own wax for hair-removal treatments, her specialty. She also mixes her own all-natural henna paste for embellishing hands and feet with elaborate whorls and loops. This attentiveness to the products used in her salon, combined with more than a quarter century of experience in the industry, has led Amita to insist that her stylists wield quality elixirs from Paul Mitchell and Biolage. The salon’s skincare specialists employ Repêchage products to renew visages wrinkled from a lifetime of frowning at a Rubik’s cube.
Chandeliers, a stone-front fireplace, and ornately framed mirrors exude elegance inside Moxie Luxe Salon. Located within Riverside Square Mall, the salon's crown molding hugs the cream, pale-green, and purple walls that surround stylists as they cut and color hair. Other beauty services include organic airbrush tans and teeth whitening, which can give you higher visibility while streaking at night.
Because hair grows at approximately 1 centimeter each month, the professional hair artists at My Fancy Strands perform specialized extension treatments to save clients from waiting several years for longer locks. Before setting to work, the stylists consult with clients and examine strands and hair types to determine the ideal application methods for new extensions. These techniques include braidless weaves, cold fusions, microlinks, and microrings, all of which eschew damaging methods such as applying excessive heat to hair or feeding it human growth hormones. With more than 51 hair colors and a variety of textures to choose from, Fancy Strands’ stock of faux strands blends in with natural hair of all kinds to fool even the most inquisitive comb-wielding school nurse.
As a physician and the owner and medical director of Nu U MedSpa and Laser Center, Dr. Priyanka Gambhir takes the time to personally perform each aesthetic medical procedure at her center. Dr. Gambhir firmly believes that these procedures should work toward restoring patients’ natural beauty as opposed to reinventing an entirely new look. To accomplish this, she relies on clinically proven techniques and the most current med-spa technologies she can find, including Alma and Cutera laser systems and skincare products infused with powdered microchips.
