From their cushy styling chairs, clients of Amoré Salon and Spa can watch shoppers bustle through the upscale Pearl District outside the studio's ample, sun-soaked windows. But in here, no one is in any hurry. With careful attention, the salon's artistic, fashion-forward hairstylists create one-of-a-kind coifs that run the gamut from multicolored punk looks to timeless bobs and long styles achieved with Great Lengths hair extensions. The extensions are crafted with real, ethically sourced human hair, and attach to existing locks with bonds that expand and contract just like the wearer's natural hair or peacock-like plumage.
In the spa realm, aestheticians revamp complexions with Jan Marini facials that target severe acne, dryness, or unsanctioned games of pore whack-a-mole. Waxing specialists don’t skimp on skincare either—in addition to using gentle Cirepil wax, facial-inspired treatments for backs and bikini lines reverse blemishes and discomfort caused by ingrown hairs. Nail specialists, meanwhile, make sure their art stays intact by finishing a number of manicures and pedicures with CND Shellac lacquers, which dry under a UV light to leave a mirrorlike finish that lasts up to 14 days.
