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.
A curled sidewalk delivers patrons to the temple-like entrance of Shear Effects. After crossing the threshold, patrons enter a Colonial Revival–style red-brick residence, where owner and stylist Amy Bast and her team of beauty professionals foster beauty and wellness. Double-hung windows shed natural light on stylists as they cut, color, or texturize strands in the salon. Voyeuristic squirrels cast their unremitting gaze on nail technicians who groom fingers and toes in a mani-pedi room. Beneath the vaulted ceiling of an upstairs massage area, a licensed massage therapist doles out soothing strokes and certified myoskeletal-alignment therapy, which combines muscle-balancing techniques with joint mobilization to alleviate neck and back pain.
?Pamper Yourself," two words stamped in gold that command all who enter Therapeutic Massage & Bodyworks' domain, asway with lush greenery. With this mandate always in mind and therapeutic scents lingering in the air, ice-cold goblets of lemon water or steaming cups of herbal tea comfort guests losing themselves in the fireplace?s warm, flickering ballet. Gentle exhalations stir the still air, raising scents that hint at fistfuls of rose petals and fruit-based masks that harness the same natural powers as the fine mud and fresh avocados enhancing the salon?s full-body treatments. A reliance on the bounty of Mother Nature carries through into massage treatments that use warm seashells to chase away stress. Skincare and body waxing are performed by licensed aestheticians who hold secondary certification in zamboni operation.
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.
