In 1973, Richard Nixon was president, Schoolhouse Rock! premiered, and Axios Salon was doing exactly what they do now––forming tresses into face-flattering cuts with bold color highlights. Drawing on these 40 years of experience, the salon has made many innovations, venturing into the realm of Japanese hair straightening, Mizani relaxer treatments, and Hair-Loc extensions. Axios's stylists are also fully licensed and offer fluency in multiple languages such as Greek, Spanish, and Haitian.
Beauty Garden welcomes guests with a white trellis adorned with pink flowers. Floral wallpaper draws guests further in before stylists lead them to a mirror-facing chair for a hair treatment or to a nail station for some hand and foot pampering. They color, curl, style, and trim hair or adorn nails with painstaking nail art and hydrate hands with paraffin dips.
Although they moved to new, larger digs in April 2012, the team of expert stylists at Renaissance Salon still delivers the same trusted cuts, colors, and salon services that they've been doling out since 2007. Senior colorists Jennifer and Jessica excel at enriching locks with dimensional color, whereas bridal expert Krista dominates when it comes to readying clients for weddings. Michelle issues precision snips that transform played-out looks into fashionable 'dos, and trendsetter Julie remains ever-vigilant in the hunt for the most adventurous styles. The senior teams is joined by a crew of five fellow stylists and two assistants, but no matter their relative experience levels, their training expectation remains the same; all staff members at Renaissance Salon are required to attend at least two advanced-training seminars annually.
The staffers at Vital Image Salon beautify clients' skin and hair—without the aid of harsh chemicals. During keratin smoothing treatments, stylists douse hair in Peter Coppola Keratin Complex, which calms frizz and flyaways without a trace of formaldehyde. Similarly, staffers bestow clients' skin with a healthy, bronze glow using SunFX products, which use all-natural ingredients and—like a carrot costume that's been sitting in the attic for far, far too long—won't look orange.
At Tranquility Salon and Day Spa in Mount Sinai, not a hair is out of place. That's because the team of meticulous stylists commits to providing an experience of Feng Shui, from the peaceful ambience to the dependable services. Before each service, a consultation with a stylist or aesthetician ensures that each client will get exactly the kind of service that they want, from hair-smoothing Keratin treatments to complexion-soothing facials. A deep-healing scalp and hair treatment fixes up damaged strands while alleviating stress, and brow waxing frames the eyes and preps countenances for a shopping trip to the mirror superstore. With spa packages and professional makeup application rounding out the service options, Tranquility Salon and Day Spa is a calming spot to get groomed toe to top.
