The name may be deceptive, but Visions Hair Studio goes beyond the follicle when it comes to beauty. The studio also offers mani-pedis that trim and shape nails and remove cuticle overgrowth. The service may also top nails with sturdy gel polish that lasts longer than regular polishes.

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.

Although the wedding-day styles at Ciro’s Hair Pavilion have garnered WeddingWire’s Bride’s Choice Awards in 2010, 2011, and 2012, the stylists behind them reach beyond the altar with a variety of everyday beauty services. Experts of texture, the stylists spruce up curls with DevaCurl products and uncoil unwanted twists with Keratin Complex by Coppola. Other professional hair products, such as Onesta and Wella, spritz clients through highlights, perms, and styles. Botanical ingredients in NYX Cosmetics makeup deliver a flawless special-occasion look while leaving out the petrolatum, parabens, and artificial colors found in other makeup brands and discount water balloons.

Cosmobella Medi-Spa & Salon deals in physical transformation while maintaining allegiance to organic products and noninvasive treatments for the hair, face, body, and nails. European and green-tea facials, for instance, combat skin imperfections and foster a youthful glow with cleansing and masks. Full-body treatments yield similar benefits. The parafango treatment, for one, slowly brushes melted vitamin E on the body to moisturize the skin and loosen the muscles.

Cosmobella also offers numerous advanced treatments that encourage weight loss, resulting in slimmer, more toned bodies and svelter shadows. Clients can try a lipo massage, Endermologie treatment, or tripolar cavitation, which targets cellulite and fat with ultrasonic waves.

The stylists at Salon G––formerly of Dazzles Salon––want clients to feel great about their hair’s style, color, and condition, and the salon has spent the last quarter of a century cutting and coifing locks to achieve that result. Along with blowouts, coloring services, and cuts, the stylists also revamp locks with the latest keratin smoothing systems for manageable, frizz-free styles.

Whether they’re brandishing tools to highlight hair or helping clients remove the unwanted kind, the seasoned team members at Hair & Nails 4 U can help anyone achieve the look they seek.

When it comes to hair, stylists artfully snip and color or apply hair treatments such as keratin conditioning. Waxing services give clients control over unwanted fuzz and send a clear message to any of the body’s other hair follicles that were considering growth spurts.
