Owner Terri Czerwinski sees Ultimate Skin Care By Terri as an oasis where guests can disappear from the calendar grid. Having been a beauty consultant for more than 25 years, the licensed aesthetician hopes to takes minds away from life's bustling moments with skin, and cosmetic treatments. She draws from a stock of European product lines such as Sothys from Paris and Pevonia from Switzerland for all her facials, which target ailments ranging from dryness to sun damage. The natural ingredients in these serums help nurture healthy complexions: seaweed and vitamin C fight wrinkles in the Luminous Renewal facial, whereas the specialty skin facial's chamomile and green-tea extracts fade signs of rosacea.
Terri flatters faces with makeup artistry as well. Her makeup spa sessions cover techniques for applying cosmetics and identify which colors will accentuate each patron’s features for special events.
Salon 22 is dedicated to taming scalp fur in a soothing, contemporary environment. Upon entering the salon, visitors can relax on plush, velvet-cushioned couches in the waiting area, enveloped by Salon 22's earthy, muted tones. Vibrant paintings anoint the walls surrounding styling stations, at which visitors are paired with one of Salon 22's hair architects to discuss new 'dos and swap crock-pot recipes.
The New You Hair Salon's staff strives to put clients at ease as soon as they enter the waiting area, which features black leather armchairs, potted plants and vases of flowers, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Before long, a staff member ushers customers back to one of the styling chairs that fill the red-and-tan-walled salon.
The staff consists of nail technicians and stylists who stay up-to-date with contemporary styling techniques by attending classes and competing in high-stakes trivia contests. They utilize these techniques along with professional haircare products by Schwarzkopf and Sebastian to reshape clients' locks into flattering looks that reflect their personal styles.
The staff at Artistic Images shares their hairstyling skills with their clients, but also with other stylists around New England as styling educators. That’s not to say that they don’t keep up with their own training; in fact, they keep abreast of hair’s latest trends in order to cut, color, permanently straighten, or otherwise re-texturize hair in the way their clients envision. Their knowledge as educators helps them make product suggestions so that clients can maintain salon looks at home.
Tesoura Salon’s cadre of experienced stylists whips unkempt tresses into sleek shape. Scissors piloted by artful hairscapers nibble strands into chic configurations, and a concluding styling service adds polish to newly hewn 'dos. Those opting for partial highlights dapple cranial plumage with flattering color kisses without the hassle of standing in the middle of a paintball duel. For already shapely strands suffering from frizz, the semipermanent Brazilian keratin treatment leaves locks linear and smooth in approximately 30 minutes. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, the treatment coats each shaft of hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating unwanted curl and smoothing cuticles. Patrons are sent home with an assortment of aftercare products for sustained silkiness upkeep, assisting hair in retaining its newfound unswerving character for up to six or seven weeks.
