The color specialists and master barbers at Serenity Styles mollycoddle strands inside a calm salon space marked by earth-toned walls and cushy brown leather couches. Like a city planner with a vendetta against cul-de-sacs, the stylists’ nimble shears remove dead ends before moving on to beautifying the whole head. Redken products power a number of treatments, augmenting specialty services such as facial waxing and updos for weddings, dances, and beekeeping conventions.
Our mission at Hair Studio Artists is to create fashion forward looks in an affordable way. The health and integrity of your hair is our driving force. We are dedicated to achieving this by continually remaining active in the salon industry.
To permanently spruce up faces, Eylsa Ross blends clinical skill with artistry that's landed her work on celebrity mugs, television, and the pages of Shape, Real Simple, and InStyle magazines. In her experienced hands, which have dusted the faces of Matthew Perry and Christine Baranski, brows become bolder and lips become fuller. Elysa's work isn't limited to faces however; mastectomy patients rely on her for repigmentation.
Elysa also exposes complexions' natural glows with peels, microdermabrasion, and candelabra hats. She applies makeup to prep façades for weddings and events and hosts private parties.In addition to being an official Laura Mercier makeup artist, Elysa is a medical aesthetician in plastic surgery and dermatology offices. She started out by training with Pamela Taylor––who's made up the famous faces of the Rolling Stones and Billy Joel––and apprenticed with Laura Geller herself, whose line of cosmetics bears her name in stores across the nation.
The barbers and master barbers at Kennedy's believe that gentlemen should be able to walk into an authentic barbershop and feel a sense of belonging. To that end, they work to perfect the art of essential grooming services, while also offering a bit of luxury. The Kennedy's experience begins in the waiting area, where patrons receive a complimentary drink—coffee, beer, water, or soda—to enjoy with a newspaper, magazine, or a harrowing tale from the shop's resident deep-sea fisherman.
After a shampoo and a conditioning scalp massage, the specialists perform signature haircuts that conclude with straight-razor edging, a neck-and-shoulder massage, and a hot towel. Straight-razor shaves employ 30 meticulous steps¬ to ensure that each face is cleansed, shaved, and protected: each begins with preshave oil to help the razor glide across the skin, followed by warm lather applied with a brush, two passes with a straight razor, and a moisturizing aftershave. In-chair upgrades include a gent's wax to remove ear and nose hairs, a gent's mini facial to cleanse and nourish skin, and a MANicure to remove all traces of motor oil from giving the car its 3,000-mile massage.
All the clients who walk in the door leave with stylish dos that not only reflect their personality but complement their facial features, natural hair texture, and lifestyle. With their emphasis on customer service, stylists make sure to start appointments with a thorough consultation to determine each client’s desired look and daily maintenance routine. Then, the stylists get to work giving precision cuts, changing hues with hair dyes, and finishing styles with a selection of products.
The team can also perform more dramatic transformations with specialty services such as applying hair extensions, hair-smoothing treatments with thermal reconditioning, and vibrant highlights with a unique ombre technique.
Guests checking in at Lisa B and Company could deliberate between the spa's selection of facials and peels—or they could just have both. The menu's luxuriant Velvet Peel calls upon mechanical and chemical exfoliation to double-team stubborn cases of dullness, scarring, and trash strewn about by litterbug eyelashes. Many of the spa's other treatments also boast advanced therapies, such as pedicures infused with anti-inflammatory lavender or softening vanilla milk. In the spa, massage therapists skim heated river stones across pooled tension, and aestheticians resurface bodies with Dead Sea salt. Before or after their services, guests can take a few extra minutes to unwind with a complimentary herbal tea, glass of wine, or detox water.
