Overhead lights from Alexander’s high ceilings cast a glow on marshmallow-white floor tiles and cozy leather furniture. Amid these warm accents, skilled stylist Jordan Fahed draws on more than 25 years of experience to chisel flattering layers and splash strands with bold highlights. But the 10,000-square-foot salon is about more than just hair. After clients indulge their senses with a facial, massage, or waxing service, they’re free to grab a bite in the café or peruse the salon’s extensive clothing and accessory boutique.
Hi my name is Krista Dirks, I have been a hair stylist for over 12 years now, and have worked at Alexanders premier salon and spa for 10 years. I love what I do and am a perfectionist with my work and take it very seriously. I ensure all my clients are completely satisfied with the end result of my work.
Bigger is not always better. Within Glo Salon’s intimate space, the stylists, aestheticians, tanning experts, and nail technicians don't only work to beautify clients—they also get to know them. The team takes pride in the personal care and attention their space allows them to give each client, and that translates into creating the best looks for customers' unique features and styles. A seemingly book-long menu of services includes an array of facial, waxing, tanning, makeup, and hair treatments, all catered to individual needs. Whether undergoing a Japanese hair-straightening treatment, a revitalizing facial with extractions, or a simple bangs trim, patrons depart Glo with a new or updated style created to help them look and feel their best.
Sunlight barges through I-Thie Total Beauty's wall-sized windows only to bounce upwards off pristine marble floors, rebound off spotless white walls, and fill up the frames of floor-to-ceiling mirrors. The modern, minimalist facility doesn't sacrifice comfort for style, however, as padded pedicure stations welcome feet to shed the weight of their walk in whirlpool tubs, and ergonomic styling chairs keep bodies cozy as stylists facilitate glamorous looks for locks. The airy spa is also the perfect setting in which to streamline a makeup routine, and so cosmetologists embellish lips, brows, and eyelids with permanent pigments and strengthen eyelashes' ability to earn sympathy and extended curfews with silk and mink extensions
As she struggled to surmount issues with her own weight, Boogie Box Fitness creator Dede Barbanti drew from her professional dance background, martial-arts training, and enthusiasm for exercise to pioneer the gym's rigorous yet fun workout routine. The calorie-flaming moves, which have been featured by Dr. Oz and publications such as Dance magazine, have since spawned BBX Kids and the more vigorous BBX Hardcore. Behind the regimens' popularity lie easy-to-follow steps culled from kickboxing, strength training, plyometrics, and Latin and hip-hop dance. In addition to motivating patrons to shimmy into fitter physiques, Dede channels her expertise as a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist into the BBX Body membership site. Here, visitors can peruse custom menu plans, exercise tutorials, and life-coaching advice given by the world's smartest biceps.
