The Millers envisioned a beauty resource for western New York – a place where creativity would flourish and clients would be treated like royalty; style would be up-to-the-minute and education ongoing. Until now, brands like Jo Malone, Oribe, Aqcua di Parma, and Kai were only to be found in major cities, hours away.
Certified by the eyelash extension experts at Lavish Lashes, cosmetologist Jennifer Kelch draws upon her intensive training to elongate lashes during 60- to 90-minute appointments. As her clients lounge on a massage table and listen to soothing, nature-inspired noises such as the whispering wind or leaves hugging other leaves, Jennifer applies Lavish Lashes extensions and fills in lashes that have been shed. Meanwhile around her workstation, the stylists at Studio 91 rejuvenate clients with haircuts and spa-style services such as manicures, pedicures, and waxing.
The dedicated stylists at Impulse Hair Design revamp manes with fresh cuts and vibrant new hues. Their expertly wielded scissors shear off split ends and shorten mops for face-framing ‘dos, and the stylists help patrons welcome summer with blond highlights or prepare for winter with all-over white for blending in while hobnobbing with snowmen. The hair whisperers also tame curls and frizz with keratin hair-straightening treatments that render hair smooth and obedient.
You'd be hard-pressed to spot a frayed cuticle or a fingernail coated with uneven polish near Studio 91. That's because resident nail technician Kelly Dalton devotes herself to grooming fingernails and toenails with meticulously applied manicures and pedicures. She exfoliates skin, carefully trims cuticles, and massages the calves and feet before applying coats of color. While polish dries, clients can relax and sip wine or coffee.
The goal of every aesthetician, stylist, and cosmetic technician at Luxe Salon, Spa and Laser Center is to inspire renewed confidence in their clients by creating new or reinvigorated looks. The center's wooden shelves hoist an arsenal of OPI nail polishes, Guinot skincare products, and L'Or?al Professional lathers, which the staff routinely employ during hair and nail services, botanical-based facials, and exfoliating body treatments with Dead Sea salts. Massage therapists knead away stress knots with a number of specialized modalities, while med spa techs combine their aesthetic intuition and technological expertise during electrolysis treatments, microdermabrasions, and laser hair-removal sessions.
