Bernard’s offers a modern twist on Old World luxury. Elegant sconces line the walls like vintage streetlights in the salon area, and relaxation awaits in the serenity rooms. All this is the handiwork of Elizabeth Chnapko and her daughter Maria, who opened the salon after husband and father Bernard lost a long battle with cancer. While natural light pours in through the salon’s windows, skilled stylists sculpt flattering styles and add highlights. Invigorating facials segue into indulgent mani-pedis and specialty body treatments. In preparation for a therapeutic massage, clients may also make use of spa amenities such as complimentary tea, and men’s and women’s locker rooms.
The name "Arianna" has Greek and Italian roots. Those Mediterranean cultures also inform the attitude and treatments at Arianna's Retreat, which has been in business for five years. The treatments include a wide range of cosmetic procedures designed to defeat oiliness, rosacea, and other skin issues and also to relax the body. In that same vein, massage and body treatments chase away tension with everything from hot stones and sugar scrubs to wraps and moisturizers. In addition to individual treatments, there are packages designed for celebratory bridal parties, patrons looking to get away for a weekend, and couples.
Before hitting the salon floor, students at American Beauty Academy first complete a regimen of classroom coursework and hands-on training on models and Barbie dolls caught in the wild. It's only then, under the watchful eye of instructor supervisors, that they're set free to show off their newly acquired hair, skin, and nail care skills to clients. Available services include not only women's hairstyling, but also color, chemical treatments, and men's barbering.
