Maximizing beauty is the main goal of the staff at Serenity Hair & Spa, but they make sure to pamper clients along the way. Their stylists condition, cut and style hair, or infuse it with luscious texture during protein conditioning treatments.
On the spa side, Serenity's aestheticians elongate eyelashes one by one with 3-D extensions. Sothys facial treatments correct issues such as acne or dry skin, and fragrant salt scrubs leave skin radiant from head to toe.
Part spa and part school, A Little Spa Institute beautifies clients while training the next generation of aestheticians and nail technicians. All of the services are performed by students under instructor supervision. Guests can choose from an array of services that include facials, peels, waxing, mani-pedis, and spray tans. Students, on the other hand, undertake programs in skincare or nail services.
Licensed aesthetician Amber Barnett can cleanse pores with facial treatments and gently whisk away blemishes using chemical exfoliation. As a member of the Associated Skin Care Professionals, she keeps up to date on the latest techniques for keeping the skin looking youthful and less likely to sprout dandelions. When she isn't laying a foundation for healthy skin, Amber dresses it up with airbrush makeup treatments.
Every stylist who wields shears or makeup at Salon 134 West has been handpicked for the ability to employ multiple styling techniques and cross over from cutting to coloring to straightening without missing a beat. At many salons, stylists pass clients from one stylist to another in a sort of styling assembly line, all reinterpreting the hairstyle for themselves and moving away from the initial vision for the style. Rather than distorting hairstyles through such a process, Salon 134 West pairs clients with a single stylist for the entire session, allowing stylists to bring their original artistic vision to fruition while saving clients the trouble of having to explain their hair dreams ad nauseam.
Old-World sconces cast a honey glow on Kohinoor Beauty's warm-red and pale-yellow walls. An enormous photo of a perfectly decorated eye adorns one of the crimson walls. As if to assure clients of the staff's aesthetic abilities and attentiveness, the picture is positioned so guests can see the meticulously curled lashes in every mirror. A skilled staff member can ramp up eyes to match the photo by tinting brows or lashes or individually adhering semipermanent extensions to natural eye fringe. Waxing and threading are also among the women's-only salon's specialties. Technicians shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz from faces, bodies, and shadowy silhouettes.
