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.
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.
Licensed therapist Shannon Booth draws inspiration from homeopathic modalities to help bodies naturally heal from injuries and aches. Shannon tailors each massage to clients' requests, modifying pressure and targeting specific areas to eradicate pent-up tension and rivalries between kneecaps. The therapeutic kneading is designed to naturally vanquish a wide array of ailments, such as chronic pain, headaches, and muscles spasms. Inside Shannon's private massage room, tranquil music and aromatherapy scents cultivate a deeply relaxing ambiance as guests rest atop a heated table, which infuses warmth into sore musculature and helps method actors prepare for upcoming roles as flapjacks.
At Figure Head Club Salon and Spa, savvy aestheticians enhance natural assets with pampering spa treatments. During manicures, they neatly trim and file nails, then swathe them in a vibrant layer of polish. Feet shed their rough spots during the hydrating pedicure that renders soles as smooth and slick as a buttered balloon. Alternatively, eyelash extensions frame eyes in a dark, voluminous fringe, ensuring the delicate hairs cling tenaciously to ocular orbs. The specialists also perform massages in dimly lit rooms, which is the best way to lull fussy muscles into daytime naps. The entire staff operates swiftly and efficiently, affording patrons ample time to admire the recently renovated space accented by a red ceiling and Roman-style columns.
Featured on WKBW Channel 7, the natural-spa services at Preeti’s Organic Spa range from organic facials to herbal massages, many of which are powered by natural products from Christine Valmy. The spa offers a number of high-end treatments, including facials blended with 24-karat gold, silver, pearl, and chocolate mix-ins. The beauty haven also ousts unwanted fuzz with waxing or threading methods and embellishes hands and feet with intricate henna designs that are often seen as tokens of good fortune during weddings or barrel rides over Niagara Falls.
The Village Spa's owner, JoAnn, has spent decades mastering the art of relaxation after becoming a spa esthetician in 1988. Although she specializes in facials, JoAnn and her staff perform a range of treatments that use the spa's signature line of natural-based skincare products. The beauty gurus lead guests to private treatment rooms where they perform everything from massages and microdermabrasion to waxing and manicures. The Village Spa's small, intimate location helps guarantee that clients receive personal attention and angry rhinos cannot get into the building, let alone interrupt services.
