For more than 20 years, the sauce slingers at Baldinelli Pizza have been spinning out thin-crust pies, italian subs, and hearty pastas. More than 20 vegetable and meat toppings lounge on pizzas, the circumferences of which range from 7 inches for individual pies to 18 inches for pizzas large enough to bid to host the Olympics. Subs layer ham, salami, and turkey with provolone, tomato, and onions to create thick sandwiches that can be eaten cold or toasted. Homemade meat or marinara sauces lather up pastas such as mostaccioli, and meatballs perch atop noodle tangles before the lifting of a golden Chachapoyan idol releases them to thunder down slopes and into mouth tunnels.
Hairstyling is in Terry Abraham's blood. The third-generation stylist comes from a line of hairstylists who have been managing manes for more than 80 years. Continuing in his family's footsteps, Terry partnered with 20-year master stylist Anthony Tuzzolino––who boasts world-wide training with such names as Leland Hirsh and Gambuzza––to create iDesign Salon, where today the duo pools their 50 years of combined expertise to transform tresses with products from Bumble and bumble, Moroccanoil, and Aquage. Proficient in color, the salon's self-proclaimed specialty is in the creation of "gorgeous blonds," which they fashion with help from Schwartzkopf Professional Color and advice whispered from a framed photo of Veronica Lake.
At Ashley Pure Beauty, haircuts are available as add-ons, but the stylists specialize in prepping gals for turning heads without a single snip of their scissors. At this blow-dry bar, they revamp 'dos with scalp therapies, updos, blowouts. Their haircare packages' names—such as Blow My Mind and Red Carpet Blowout—hint at the sassy, whimsical tone the salon cultivates.
Family Massage Trust's therapists use their skilled hands to help clients relax and relieve pain. Their signature European manual-therapy treatment works to ease aches and instill relaxation by blending Asian and European methods of physical therapy and massage. They also perform anticellulite treatments to smooth out stubborn areas of fat and offer a Swedish-massage course to train hands how to knead a rib-eye steak into a meatball.
Upon entering Splendor, customers are greeted with floral centerpieces, parlor chairs, and wrought-iron tables that evoke images of a European garden. It is within this pleasing setting that the salon’s expert technicians beautify their clients with nail services for men and women using products from top brands such as Pevonia Botanica, OPI, and KAI. They specialize in classic and gel manicures and pedicures, with glamorous upgrades available including French manicures and paraffin treatments. They also sell high-end salon products and open the salon for bridal parties or private parties for any occasion such as a birthday, a girls' night out, or a guys-trying-to-understand-a-girls'-night-out night out.
