At J. Joseph Salon & Spa, owner Roy Naccour has grown his business from a tight-knit group of four employees to an enterprise with 31 expert stylists sought out by television programs, fashion shows, and droves of loyal customers. The salon's level system helps clients choose an ideal stylist based on training, years of professional experience, and number of swords and epaulets. Armed with instruction and certification from top salon academies, the team of stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians helps patrons rework their appearance with haircuts and makeup applications, formal hairstyling, and shellac mani-pedis. Therapists help clients unwind and release pent-up tension with deep-tissue or Swedish massages, while skin experts revitalize complexions with nourishing facials and microdermabrasions.
Under the supervision of physician and skin care specialist Dr. Eyad Alsabbagh, Dania Medical Esthetique?s skilled staff helps clients achieve aesthetic goals with a diverse palette of cosmetic and medical services. Waxing services, and injections of Botox help bolster appearances for the short-term, while laser hair removal and permanent makeup can last a lifetime, or until donning irreversible gorilla suits.
When Vicky Lysenko took over Bliss Facial Spa, she quickly realized the challenge she?d signed up for. With no experience in the skincare industry and only the advice of her cosmetologist daughter, Lysenko was overwhelmed by the time and energy it took to maintain a high-quality spa. Today, four years later, Lysenko and her team of aestheticians have proven their mettle. To achieve this success, Lysenko seeks out only the best staff members; in addition to training and ability, she looks for aestheticians with interpersonal skills and a team mentality. Lysenko also keeps her spa on the cutting edge of cosmetic technology. In addition to performing traditional spa services with products from Image Skincare and treatments like the HydraFacial, the staff at Bliss swiftly corrects blemishes and jostles circadian rhythms with FDA-approved light-therapy treatments. Lysenko recalls light-therapy clients who arrived with severe acne or fallout from poorly performed chemical peels. After a series of treatments, their faces were evidence enough of the technology's mending power. ?It?s incredible how fast and how well [they] healed,? she gushes. ?We really have a lot of faith in that light.?
While massage services are available, including Swedish and relaxation modalities, Lady Grace Beauty Spa offers many other services as well. A loop of thread and deft fingertips are all that's required for the threading process, a hair-removal technique that removes even minute hairs without irritating the skin. Parul, owner of Lady Grace Beauty Spa, creates clean, flattering brow-lines using the method. In addition to hair removal, Lady Grace also offers a full range of spa services that beautify the skin and soothe the muscles below it. Dermalogica facials combat skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, or Sharpie tattoos, and henna body art or eyelash-tinting treatments turn up the dial on natural beauty.
M Skin Solutions’ aesthetician, Mary, is a problem solver. Whether her client’s problem is acne, signs of aging, or dryness, she has a solution. Her menu of skincare services includes specialized facials and chemical peels, and she offers eyebrow and eyelash tinting and waxing services to complement revivified complexions. Along with facial treatments, she offers virtual mesotherapy sessions, thermotherapy heat wraps, cryotherapy bands, and SlimPlaster body treatments to help clients slim down and reduce cellulite.
At Artistic Cuts Salon & Spa, a cool blue tile mosaic greets visitors when they approach the desk, scarcely concealing murals of swans and cranes that usher in a feeling of serenity. Beneath hanging lanterns, specialists perform a variety of salon and spa services for men and women. Stylists tame locks with custom haircuts, coloring, perms, and straightening treatments, which can be complemented by other beauty services such as waxing and permanent makeup. Spa technicians also reward bodies with massages, facials, and skin treatments such as microdermabrasion.
