From the bottoms of your feet to the top of your head, Symmetry Salon shines a beautifying spotlight on every feature. Haircuts and coloring yield fresh new hairdos, while mani-pedis include beverages for clients to sip on as their digits are buffed, exfoliated, massaged, and polished. Aestheticians even complexions with European facials and massage therapists use peri-natal, deep-tissue, and Swedish massages to loosen gridlocked muscles.
In the salon's modern interior, curved expanses of hardwood flooring flow beneath black-leather styling seats, and mirrors set in sleek wood panels reflect the light of mushroom-like hanging lamps. Waiting clients can enjoy the lounge's full bar service while reclining on a retro sofa with smooth, clean lines or use a complimentary iPad to order products (not included in today's Groupon), create their own client profile, or conduct last-minute research on pompadour styles.
Salon Trio stylist Jillian Guyer wields hair-honing products from Redken and Aquage to tame clients' tresses and sculpt eye-catching 'dos. Jill begins each appointment with a shampoo session before transforming tufts into a client-specified look ranging from a short summer bob to a Medusian mane of sentient, serpentine locks. Once strands have been clipped, she'll enhance new 'dos with chromatic accents selected from a wide spectrum of colors, including technicolor tones such as pink and purple. Patrons can expect to emerge from Salon Trio's white-walled studio after 1.5–2 hours, depending on how much coffee the studio's scissors drank with their donuts that morning.
The stylists at Ado Blowout Lounge understand that an alluring hairstyle can serve as the body’s leading source of compliments. That’s why they perform an array of blowout and styling services that yield voluminous tresses or dramatic, flirty curls that demand positive attention. With blow-dryers and eco-friendly Davines products in tow, they can design sleek, polished hairstyles or create natural waves without relying on the old-fashioned method of tossing clients into the ocean. They also sweep strands into updos for fancier occasions.
Aside from blowouts, stylists calm stressed hair with deep conditioning treatments and add shine to dulled locks with gloss treatments. Makeup applications and eyelash extensions further enhance outer beauty, and Ado’s organic airbrush-tanning services bronze exoskeletons with a solution enriched with vitamins, pure botanicals, and natural oils.
The sassy stylists at Se Faire Belle primp patrons with a variety of shearing, sculpting, shading, and waxing services. Leaving no lock unloved, Se Faire Belle stylists use quality Aveda and L'Oréal Professionnel products as they administer custom cuts for men ($20+), women ($38+), and children ($15). The salon’s highlights and lowlights ($76–$91) add subtle flecks of follicular pigment, and the partial or full color ($55–$95) transform dull strands into brilliant sidewalk statements. For more aesthetic gains, guests can always banish infringing fringes of eyebrow, lip, or chin fuzz with a proper waxing ($15 each) or cut all ties to Santa with a full-face wax ($45).
At Skin Solutions, located inside Rio Salon, the staff has an express set of goals: to reduce the signs of age and get rid of unwanted hair while impacting their clients' day as little as possible. To these ends, registered nurse Kathy LeFever leads an aesthetic team through the use of Botox and noninvasive lasers, filling out wrinkles and zapping unwanted hair from head to toe. And the combination of these two treatments is indicative of the larger trend that all the aestheticians follow—pairing pampering services with medical-grade technology. Facials and peels, for instance, offset IPL facial treatments and micro-pigmentation cosmetics, which render eyeliner that lasts up to five years, by which time everyone will have CGI eyeliner.
