With five indoor tennis courts, a group exercise studio, and a fully equipped training room, Mount Vernon Athletic Club has kept hearts racing and muscles burning for 40 years. The tennis program aims to improve the skills of players of all ages by hosting clinics and seminars on correct stroke form and how to grow your own tennis-ball garden.
Personal trainers inhabit the training studio, creating regimens customized to their clients' physical prowess, while Fitness On Demand offers a library of group fitness classes. Rounding out the club's services, the wellness spa keeps clients looking their best with skincare and tanning services. Free childcare services allow parents to take advantage of the gamut of offerings.
Trichologists study the hair and the scalp, making them experts in the science of balding. The specialized team at The Hair Loss Clinic Trichological Associates recognizes that balding can be caused by a range of conditions—from hereditary to psychological issues—and knows it takes a professional eye to diagnose and treat the problem. Staffers use nutritional and hormonal therapies to remedy some temporary hair-loss conditions. Though there is no cure for genetic hair loss, they attempt to halt familial thinning and resod rooftop gardens with topical products and low-level laser therapy.
This studio keeps a certain peace when it comes to the battle of the sexes—at least when competing for salon chairs. Stylists and barbers ferry each gender to separate areas of the studio—one side boasts a modern salon, the other lays claim to a barbershop. But no matter where clients sit, they receive the same level of attention. Stylists fashion women’s hair into desired looks with cuts, color, and ornate origami folds. Barbers, meanwhile, put the finishing touch on men’s appearances with straight edge hot lather shaves or beard and mustache trims.
Sometimes after you purchase a dapper new outfit, something is still missing. If shoppers find such an outfit at the Landmark Mall Macy's, they might go next door to Hair By Salam and discover that a sharp new haircut completes their look. The friendly stylists can add blow-dries and deep-conditioning treatments to cuts, or they can perform partial or full highlights or single-process color applications.
