Trend Setters Hair Salon's owner and captain stylist, Jen Palmer, calls on more than 18 years of experience and specialization in cuts and coloring as she leads her staff. The team's comprehensive menu runs the gamut from keratin treatments and perms to facial waxing. In time slots doled out by appointment only, they discipline rowdy locks with products from Moroccanoil and Nioxin and brighten nails with artful french tips or resilient shellac gel that guards against chipping so that clients don't have to wear oven mitts to work. Surrounding the stylist's beautification chairs, muted, green walls hung with photos of flora and fauna craft a woodland-like environment.
When founding Park Avenue Salon and Spa, owner Lynne Zsido assembled an experienced staff of licensed professionals, many with decades of experience. With an eye to environmental responsibility, the beautification crew assesses an armory of products by Bare Escentuals, CND, and Marcia Teixeira. Beyond the spa's emerald-hued door, smooth stones steep in warmth in preparation for romps across tired muscles or bank vaults carved from butter. Sweet nothings drift from massage sessions for couples, and soothing and cleansing elixirs wrought from Hershey's chocolate, jojoba oil, and almonds broadcast a dulcet bouquet.
Lynn Leo and his staff of aestheticians and stylists at Leo's on Chocolate Salon & Spa beautify clients with a broad range of relaxing, revitalizing treatments. Hair color specialists accentuate monochrome 'dos with highlights and color, massage therapists ease persistent aches, aestheticians perform pampering facials, and nail technicians smooth cuticles with soothing manicures and pedicures.
A handful of split ends. A chipped nail. A muscle twinge. Details Salon and Spa understands that the smallest things can sometimes interfere with an individual's confidence and overall sense of calm. To help address all of these issues, the spa's stylists, aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists work together to indulge their clients while creating a soothing atmosphere.
Haircuts and styling sessions can craft hairdos that better frame clients' features, and, with the addition of professional coloring treatments, can help create a striking new look altogether. During massages, the therapists draw inspiration from a variety of modalities, combining massage techniques as they see fit to develop personalized treatments that target areas of stress. The nail technicians can similarly use manicures and pedicures to revitalize their clients by incorporating anything from warm towels and honey-almond scrubs to aromatherapy oils. Indulgent facials restore the skin's youthful glow and conceal common blemishes, such as acne breakouts, fine lines, and stubborn Halloween masks.
Robert Anthony's stylists and aestheticians administer hair, nail, and skin treatments in an alabaster-white salon accented with light-hued wood furnishings. Styling chairs face floor-to-ceiling mirrors where hairdressers manipulate tresses with professional products by brands such as Redken and Pureology, and nail stations are situated in front of expansive windows that reveal river views. During massages, clients lie comfortably in private treatment rooms as therapists knead away muscle tension and worries, which slide off the table to be later swept up by the evening cleaning staff.
Hair We Are revitalizes patrons with a staff of massage therapists and aestheticians armed with a slew of comprehensive spa-service techniques. The Ultra Hydrating facial nourishes and rebalances dehydrated skin types in a way that taking a convertible through a car wash never will, attending to the complications caused by sun-damaged, mature, or stress-affected skin. Muscles in need of a tune-up can alternatively submit to a Swedish massage (starting at $60), which includes light to medium pressure in a full-body kneading designed for relaxation. The deep-tissue massage (starting at $75) addresses chronic muscle pains with deep-muscle therapies, and the hot-stone massages (starting at $80) slide across the body in search of subdermal stress deposits. For any massage, the addition of aromatherapy oils (add $5) caresses the olfactory senses while awakening the skin, the mind, and passersby.
