Justin Saitta founded the colorful NY Line of Hair Design in 1980 with the goal of forging personal bonds with each of his clients. Now, two decades and four WARM 101.3 Best of Rochester awards later, Saitta and his team of stylists continue to consult with each visitor and custom craft haircuts that are perfectly suited to individual looks and lifestyles. Stylists also help visitors avoid bad hair days with suggestions about daily care, regular salon upkeep, and not wearing mop buckets as hats. Mani-pedis and hair removal keep body parts looking fresh, and makeup specialists prep customers for special occasions such as proms, weddings, and wedding-themed superproms.
The staff at Hair Extraordinaire Salon has enhanced nails and hair for more than 30 years. Adults and children swivel in black styling chairs as stylists trim, color, and condition hair with products from premium brands such as Schwarzkopf and Eufora. Across the salon, technicians paint natural and acrylic nails in hues to match any outfit or color and banish unwelcome hair from faces, appendages, and bikini lines with waxing services performed in private rooms.
Irondequoit Wellness Center's licensed massage therapists loosen tightly tied bodily knots through the deliberate, therapeutic strokes of a deep-tissue massage. Deep compression and targeted trigger-point therapy help relax muscles left tense from sports injuries, pent-up stress, or carpooling with clowns. Firm pressure and concentrated stretching dig into stubborn muscles and return them to their normally chill state, promoting overall wellness and increasing bodily mobility for better slow-motion replays.
The technicians at Lipo Laser Center & Spa use a variety of high-tech treatments to help their clients slim their physiques and smooth their skin. The Yolo Curve laser shrinks fat cells, causing them to spill their contents like so many lipid-filled pi?atas, and Endermologie machines uses mechanical massage to break down cellulite structures and improve circulation. The spa?s offerings also include traditional massages and European facials, in addition to body scrubs and waxing.
The bronzing pros at Tanning Bed help clients achieve a coppery glow by regularly outfitting each bed with new lamps and replenishing spray-tan booths with skin-darkening formulas. To keep tanners cool as they drink up Vitamin D, all 31 boutiques equip private rooms with maximum ventilation and one ton of air conditioning for every tanning bed, or the amount required to chill enough soda for a herd of thirsty polar bears. Guests can customize how frequently they tan by selecting from multiple membership or package options. Bronzers with a two-visit package ($9.99) must redeem both sessions within 30 days, whereas those with a 10-visit ($39.99) or 20-visit bundle ($69.99) can pepper the calendar with visits throughout one year. Memberships for 7 ($9.99), 30 ($39.99), or 90 ($89.99) consecutive days of tanning allow tanners to sustain a sun-kissed appeal and ultimately imprint body grooves into their bed of choice.
Tangles Hair Designers & Day Spa fills its rooms with the sounds of aestheticians smoothing, snipping, and brushing with a bevy of spa, hair, nail, makeup, and waxing services. Trained specialists administer Bio Jouvance microneedle-therapy treatments by guiding the gliding, FDA-approved bio roller over skin surfaces. The roller contains 340 needles that are as fine as a hummingbird's chin hairs and stimulate collagen production. The pampering pricks also improve the absorption of skincare products, including an application of serum with vitamins A and C to thwart skin concerns such as fine lines and deep wrinkles.
For more than a decade, Carol Kennedy has explored the potential of massage therapy, eschewing the idea that massage is a mere luxury in favor of a staunchly therapeutic paradigm. When she isn't continuing her education, she massages clients in two quiet, calm settings. Inside her St. Paul Boulevard office, plum-colored walls and wooden bookshelves surround clients as they lie next to a faux fireplace adorned with a red-and-white tapestry. Her Perrin Drive location is inside a stately two-story house, where Carol rubs elbows with two chiropractors. She kicks off each massage session with a brief health assessment before she employs a medley of techniques—including deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and hot-stone massage—to mend muscles burdened by stress or by their overly ornate shoulder pads.
