As Andrew’s Hair Salon’s stylists cut, color, and shape tresses, they pay careful attention to achieving customers’ desired looks—just as they did when the salon opened its doors in 1964. Since then, the hairstyling industry has changed, but an emphasis on continuing education ensures that these stylists stay at the cutting edge of hair trends and techniques. Andrew’s Hair Salon also offers expert facial waxing services, keeping eyebrows shaped and upper lips and chins smooth to help clients impersonate wax mannequins at Madame Tussauds.
Not only do Good to Glow’s tanning artists mist clients in a natural-looking golden hue, they do it with an all-natural, organic solution. It’s also gluten- and paraben-free, while their signature, skin-nourishing Glam Tans can also help fight signs of aging or create slimmer appearances. Besides coating figures in-studio, the team hosts on-site spray tanning parties, as well, replete with champagne and rock candy, ideal for bridal showers and private parties.
Nature sounds swirl past terra-cotta walls in Heaven Salon & Spa's 3,000-square-foot space, where nail techs, hairstylists, and massage therapists work together to soothe away stresses. Clients can slide into leather salon chairs for a complimentary image-profile consultation before every haircut, which also always includes relaxing hair brushing and a cleansing and conditioning treatment. In a green-hued private facial room, aestheticians rejuvenate epidermises with Plantogen skincare products as soft classical and contemporary music plays. A dedicated relaxation room hosts clients before and after massages, and pedicures cosset them in thrones draped with soft blankets. Heaven Salon & Spa's staff also offers treatments tailored to teens, men, and sea monsters, which have scaly skin that could use an exfoliating scrub.
The staff at Amherst Laser Lipo Center brings weight-loss goals to fruition with the pairing of noninvasive cold-laser technology and whole-body vibration sessions. The former sends a laser beneath the skin to the fat cells, where it stimulates a natural process that causes the cells to release their water, glycerol and free fatty acids. Then, the latter augments these treatments by boosting metabolism and circulation, which can result in slimmer physiques without trips to the gym.
After a serious auto accident, massage therapy was instrumental in Mark Banaszak’s recovery. Inspired to heal others, Banaszak became a licensed massage therapist himself. Since 2006, he has helped clients to relax, de-stress, and feel more like a biscuit mix with Swedish massages. He also addresses specific injuries and physical problems with deep-tissue massage, trigger-point therapy, and myofascial-release techniques.
