It didn't take Jackie Vardanyan long to figure out what she wanted to do with her life. She took her first cosmetology classes at age 15 and received her license right after she graduated from high school. She then threw herself into the world of aesthetics by studying makeup of all kinds: airbrush, permanent, and character. She also sharpened her skills under the guidance of Hollywood makeup artist Dina Ousley. With this experience behind her, Jackie opened Palazzo Salon and Spa.
There, she and her staff cut and color tresses amid Venetian-style decor. Old World chests stand next to ornate full-length mirrors, and crystal chandeliers cast light over gold curtains and statuary. One wall-size painting even depicts a group of women lounging in tunics, presumably waiting for conversation to be invented.
A visit to Allure Salon de Beaute is an experience, not an errand. And that’s because the beauty specialists pamper guests with hair and nail care enhanced by quality products and stylish accents. In addition to administering artful haircuts, color treatments, and nail services, staff members also beautify guests with modern options such as Brazilian blowouts and hair extensions.
In addition to trimming and styling, Lulu does everything from taming dry and frizzy strands to applying color from trusted lines such as L'Or?al, Chi, and Goldwell. For clients interested in accompanying Lulu's work with an eye-catching manicure or younger-looking skin can tap one of Reflection Beauty Spa's nail techs or aestheticians.
Light from hanging chandeliers bounces off the cream-colored walls of Atelier Sav, where stylist Anna Mansoorian creates hairstyles as elegant as her surroundings. She specializes in updos, extensions, and treatments such as Pravana’s Keratin Fusion Texture Control, a formaldehyde-free formula that smoothes hair with natural amino acids. The salon's styling chairs are covered in cushy golden upholstery, making them a convenient place to relax after a night of racing go-karts through local malls.
Skin Deep Studio & Salon's staff analyzes skin to create personalized skincare plans and nutritional diets during complimentary consultations. Personalized regimens allow clients to follow plans that address their skin's unique needs, helping them meet their epidermal goals, such as having clearer skin or skin that glows purple when the Baltimore Ravens are on television. The staff offers a full menu of skincare treatments, including deep-cleaning facials, acne treatments, microdermabrasions, and chemical peels. Along with providing skincare, staffers relax muscles with massage therapy, apply permanent makeup, and remove hair with waxing services.
