Hairstylist Jenn Velez fused the names of her two daughters, Melina and Alexus, to title Melxus Hair Studio, a salon that specializes in hair and makeup services. Jenn's stylists clean up the looks of men, women, and children with custom cuts and deep-conditioning treatments, adding length to clients’ manes with extensions, rather than fun-house mirrors. The beauty parlor’s modern tress treatments rely on trending products and techniques, which Jenn stays abreast of with continuing education.
Clients’ heads are in good hands with Amy Knight. The master stylist and colorist expertly lops off dead ends, creates face-flattering layers, and alters hues with salon-grade dyes. When not transforming ‘dos, Amy whisks unwanted hair from faces, and revamps nails with shellac manicures and a full set of acrylics.
Serendipity Hair Studio cultivates a family-like atmosphere with a staff of experienced and always friendly hair stylists and nail technicians. Tricia Theall is one of four hairstylists, and her expertise with Redken Centricity and her training with Nordic hair extensions and Keratin by Coppola help her to beautify clients to their specifications. She is also always up-to-date on the latest trends and particularly enjoys working with clients trying the most recent looks. The salon in which Tricia and her cohorts ply their trade features elegant framed mirrors, artwork on the walls, and floors that, like lumberjacks' cell phones, are hardwood.
From within Queens' Club Fitness, Infinity Spa Salon strikes an effective balance between natural skincare and advanced aesthetic treatments. Located a short distance from New York City, aestheticians clear and brighten complexions with seven types of facials infused with vitamin C and hydroquinone-free lightening ingredients, and they also use the exfoliating powers of mechanical microdermabrasion. Unwanted hairs can be effortlessly removed using an all-natural, beeswax-infused formula from GiGi or the advanced technology of an Alma Soprano XL laser, which permanently removes hair from any skin type including ghosts' see-through complexions. In massage treatment rooms, therapists rely on 10 different modalities, including the ancient techniques of Thai massage and shiatsu, to release tight muscles and improve circulation.
Infinity's focus on harmony is also apparent in the salon and spa's interior design, which melds contemporary decor with natural earth elements, such as bamboo plants and warm brown walls.
Wall sconces and elegant chandeliers cast golden glow on Hair Philosophy's caramel-hued walls and leather L-shaped sofas. Amid these modern accents, owners Anita and Taesha transform tresses with high-end products by Schwarzkopf L'Oreal, and Redken. Clients can also solicit the salon's waxing services to nix unwanted facial hair from clients and their teenage cabbage patch dolls.
