Beyond its sweeping menu of hair and nail services, Salon Lidori cultivates a welcoming atmosphere by focusing on its clients' needs and wants. Helmed by Susan Polidori, an industry veteran with almost four decades of hairstyling experience, the salon maintains an upbeat vibe while providing expert care—the staff includes stylists certified in keratin treatments and Goldwell color application. The team uses Goldwell and KMS and TIGI products to treat and style hair, and paraffin wax to soften skin during mani-pedis.
At Intrigue Hair Studio & Spa, stylists have a steel-tight grip on the tricks and tools of crafting fashionable 'dos. They meld their industry savvy with an intimate understanding of the products they use while cutting, coloring, and texturing strands. Pre-cut consultations help pin down clients' tastes, whether they want a simple touch-up or a wedding makeover, and a stock of retail merchandise keeps locks buoyant for days following each visit. Yet although the hair whisperers are well-versed in all aspects of the coiffure arts, their specialty [service] (http://gr.pn/R1dciU) is corrective coloring, which repairs the appearance of uneven dye jobs and hair that turned only half-white after a brief ghost encounter.
In the spa area, licensed massage therapists soothe knots with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities or target nodes on the feet during reflexology treatments to ease general tension throughout the body. This style is also available as part of the Elite signature pedicure—one of many nail services that pamper extremities. In the interest of healthy, smooth skin, the venue's aestheticians also administer facials, waxing, and electrolysis.
James Ross Salon evokes a modern artist's loft with hardwood floors, leather chairs, and tall mirrors framed in carved lumber. Amid these warm accents, skilled stylists reform strands with sleek cuts and bold highlights, which can add dimension or semi-permanently designate which strands are best for pigtails. Mani-pedis reinvigorate overworked digits, and specialty waxing sessions can inspire sumptuous eyebrow curves or evict unwanted fuzz from other parts of the face.
Over nearly a quarter of a century, nail technician Kim Palumbo has embellished thousands of fingers and toes with every shade of polish under the technicolor sun. Kim has perfected both the classic manicure—brushing vibrant OPI polish or chip-resistant gel over talons in lush, solid hues—and its French variation, crafting flawless white tips on a rosé base. Though a master craftswoman, Kim takes pride in doing her work efficiently as well; she can outfit hands with a set of acrylics or complete acrylic fill-ins over the course of just half an hour, enabling clients to return swiftly to their hectic lives filled with board meetings, childcare, or watching paint before it gets too dry.
