Like a diamond cutter, which changes an uncut stone into a beautiful gem, Diamonds Salon's stylists attempt to turn clients into beauties via great haircuts. As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Diamonds Salon uses products and techniques from the famed king of hair, including the popular Awapuhi Wild Ginger line. Stylists also add sun-kissed highlights and bold pops of pink, purple, red, and blue color for those who want to look a little more rock 'n' roll without hiring a pyrotechnics crew to follow them around.
Elements Salon and Day Spa turns frizzies into flowing locks and achy bodies into rejuvenated organ carriers with a multitudinous mélange of spa and salon services. Pamper cranium covers with eco-friendly Aveda products during a cut and style ($5+ for children, $16+ for men, and $26+ for women) or banish unwanted hair by waxing lip lines ($15), underarms ($30), or eyebrows ($12). Guests can also opt for a beautifying manicure ($17) or pedicure ($36) to prepare phalanges for spring showcasing or try a soothing knead from a certified massage therapist ($30–$100) to reward hardworking backs after a week of textbook-toting or summer sandal shot-putting.
When Michele Taber, a licensed cosmetologist of two decades, decided to open Meeshe’ Salon and Spa in her native county, the beautifier selected a waterfront Cayuga Lake location that exuded tranquility. Her salon and spa treatments transfer the natural serenity indoors with mani-pedis augmented by seaweed wraps and full-body scrubs that exfoliate with sea salt instead of the traditional tool, corrugated cardboard. A fleet of freshly updated tanning beds warm bodies to a beachy glow, and shears or wax rid bodies of excess hair.
Some salons are content to slather faces with a mix of mud and sugar and call it a facial. That’s not the case at SeriouSkin, where aestheticians curate a menu that includes only those treatments and products that have been clinically proven to safely remedy skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, and unwanted hair. The spa’s licensed staff members are all trained masters of their trade, skillfully deploying services that range from laser hair removal and permanent makeup to FDA-approved Bio-Roller micro-needle therapy, which improves the look and feel of skin through use of fast-moving, collagen-stimulating needles filled with inspirational quotes.
Despite its clinical technology, the salon features a softer side, including a brow bar where aestheticians can shape eye awnings with a range of powders, pencils, waxes, and brow mascaras, or enhance lashes with conditioners and extensions. The studio is thoroughly stocked with a wide range of quality products by brands such as PCA Skin, Ayur-Medic, and Jade, and aestheticians are happy to recommend products that can be used at home to enhance any treatment’s effectiveness.
Sylk Spa & Salon's stylists, aestheticians, and bodywork experts pamper guests from head to toenail with all-natural and environmentally friendly products, including Surface haircare, Skin Fitness Therapy, and SpaRitual nail polish. Women, men, and even children can stop by for haircuts, and other beautifying and relaxing treatments range from whole-body scrubs to massage therapy. To complete the soothing experience, the spa and salon's dark cabinets, copper-hued walls, and flickering fireplace create an atmosphere as peaceful as a dove-producing magician.
