At Bella Vita Salon, a team of experienced stylists create stunning, fashionable new dos for men and women alike, continuously honing their skills and staying ahead of up-and-coming trends. With precision cuts, expert color services, and high-end products from brands such as Moroccanoil, hair artists transform split ends and dull strands into hair masterpieces. Amid the salon's gleaming wood floors and cushy black leather styling chairs, stylists tackle everything from bold all-over color infusions to delicate ombre treatments inspired by popular celebrities or famous wig models.
Spalishus' aestheticians pride themselves on placing their customers' comfort and happiness above all else. To this end, they offer services ranging from facials and waxing to electrolysis and laser treatments that speak to that desire by producing dramatic results with little to no downtime or invasive procedures. Their facials use both organic serums and chemical compounds to imbue the skin with healthy nutrients and battle tarnished top layers, while their laser hair removal semi-permanently removes unwanted hair from across the body.
Armed with experience and medical-grade equipment, the technicians at A Bare Beautiful You focus on getting rid of excess hair. They can use the intense, pulsing beams of the GentleLase machine to get rid of stubble from many areas. Electrolysis, meanwhile, uses electrical currents to help remove hair at the root. This process sparks chemical changes that can effectively destroy unwanted hair, or at least make it rethink its motives. The med-spa also can perform spray tanning, ear piercing, permanent makeup, and eyebrow shaping.
At Boutique Laser & Skin Spa, technology offers a path to amplified beauty. Its owner Monika, who is laser treatment certified for hair removal, skin tightening, and photo facials, has worked with several top physicians in the NYC metro area. Many of the spa's advanced treatments are powered by Palomar StarLux laser light: it helps inhibit hair growth in follicles during hair-removal treatments, rejuvenate faces during photofacials, and tighten skin during wrinkle reduction by stimulating collagen production. Other services like body contouring, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening use the Alma Accent XL laser. For services without lasers, like microdermabrasion, diamond microdermabrasion, facials, and designer peels, the staff uses products and methods backed by a history of results.
Changing Heads Salon is housed in a historic building that was constructed in 1865 as a general store. Inside, you'll find original wooden beams and maple floors. The building may be old-fashioned, but the stylists are not. With an eye for the artistic and the progressive, staff members—whose work has appeared on television and in magazines—keep things fresh with couture hair design that includes cuts, coloring, and reconstructive treatments.
Lash extensions, skin care, and makeup services add more makeover options; for the whole package, you can take advantage of the salon's fashion concierge service. Participants are paired with a professional stylist who helps them assemble a wardrobe that flatters their looks and gives their closets the confidence to evict freeloading skeletons.
