It only seems natural for beautician Olivia Foti to own a salon and spa. Her more than 25 years of experience in the beauty industry is nearly upstaged by her long list of specializations, which include hair extensions, artificial nails, and facial waxing. But at her beauty haven, Salon De Solage, Olivia isn?t the only experienced technician. Many members of her team boast anywhere from 10 to 40 years of experience, and can beautify a range of hair textures with precision cuts and foil highlights.
In the salon?a sanctuary of colorfully bottled products enriched by zebra prints, plants, and red chairs?clients can also be found enjoying customized aromatherapy and reflexology massages, or having their digits done up with acrylic tips. Technicians create these tips from CND's SolarNail powders, which allow the nail bed to breathe beneath a hard exterior primed for polish, nail art, or tiny games of chess.
Erin and Tara, the aestheticians at Beleza Waxing and Skincare Lounge, keep bodies looking beautiful with a full menu of depilatory and facial services. They specialize in Brazilian waxing for both men and women, clearing bikini zones from bow to stern with all-natural hard wax. Their facial treatments combat acne, signs of aging, and Kool-Aid mustaches with cleansers, exfoliation, and hydration, and they apply the same care to flip sides during back facials.
Hairstylist Linda Knowlton has two decades of experience under her beauty belt, including time spent working as a top seller for Matrix and Framesi Haircolor. Linda’s styling strengths include dimensional hair color and precision cutting for all lengths of hair, though she has a special knack for helping long hair stay healthy, no matter how many people climb it.
At Katie Eyelash Extensions, located within Le Prince Salon, an aesthetician draws on years of beauty-industry experience to keep clients groomed and styled from eyebrows to toes. She decorates fingernails and toenails during mani-pedis, waxes away unwanted body hair, and lengthens eyelashes with extensions that last up to four weeks. For a flirtatious curl, opt for the eyelash perming treatment.
At Spa 33, each staff member plays a specific role in the spa’s healing and beautifying disciplines, from custom massages to aesthetics and makeup application. Clients in need of a massage can match their needs with one of four massage therapists, all of whom are identified on the website by their general degree of massage pressure on a scale of 1–10. Using this scale, clients can seek out a therapist who can offer a gliding, gentle massage or one who breaks up muscle knots and tendons in mid-clash. In addition to massages, complexion-beautifying spa services draw from ingredients known to have healing properties, such as pumpkin and European roses. The spa offers extended hours on Thursday and Friday, and appointments can be booked online.
When it comes to beauty treatments, O'Leisure Hair Design does a little bit of everything. Licensed stylists here use AG Hair Products and perform chic haircuts and keratin smoothing treatments, and spa treatments such as hair removal, eyelash extensions, and nail services are also available. You can get even eyebrows with a threading session, too, or renew your skin and up your pH levels with an ultra-hydrating facial. There are private spa rooms for all waxing, massages, and facials.
