Whether with clippers or scissors, Gregory Rossi demonstrates a deft barber's touch that he's honed for nearly 20 years. At Rossi's Hair Studio, he and his brother Nicholas tap into their industry experience to provide cuts, shaves, and other hair services for both male and female clients. Men can polish up their looks with a standard or buzz cut, hot shaves, and even men's color camo services, which can conceal grey hairs or toy soldiers hiding in parts. Rossi's also offers women's cuts in addition to highlight, coloring, and waxing treatments.
Much like the state of being for which it is named, About PHace's nirvana organic facial and massage is the ultimate escape from suffering barring unlimited access to raw cookie dough. Employing fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers from local grocers at Sue's Produce and the Reading Terminal Market, the nirvana organic facial and massage siphons away stress and melts tension starting from the face and working its way down to the toes—restoring harmony to each jangling, atonal corporeal sphere along the way. The treatment combination is gentle, requiring no downtime for one's tender under-face, and the massage is administered face-up so that you won't even have to deal with the stress of turning over. Your face will feel so pampered by the end of the hour that it may refuse to leave the treatment room (though the skilled staff have techniques for coaxing it back onto your head).
At Silk Body Waxing Studio, licensed aesthetician Kristen Whiting might be the one removing hair from your body, but you're the one in control. Kristen allows her clients to determine the speed and technique of her waxing services. For especially sensitive skin, she might take a slow, section-by-section approach, whereas those who prioritize speed receive a swift yet gentle procedure. Regardless of their preference, one rule remains firm: no double dipping.
Kristen caters to men and women alike with her supply of cream-based and hard wax. She specializes in Brazilians, which remove every strand of hair from the front and back of the pelvic region. This and other body waxing services leave physiques smooth and primed for summer activities, such as hitting the beach or worshipping Ra. In addition to areas such as the chest, underarms, and abdomen, Kristen also waxes parts of the face, from brows to sideburns to lips. And, as a trained skincare professional, she can even accompany clients on shopping trips for skin products and provide other advice for keeping pores healthy.
The team of stylists at Chroma Hair Gallery utilizes years of beauty-industry experience while performing each haircut, makeover, or other styling service. From customized extensions to expert coloring or Brazilian blowouts, they create stylish new looks for men and women, including bridal hair and makeup. On most days, the owner’s special Chihuahua, Chi Chi, is there to liven up the salon by jumping on laps and telling tales of his best haircuts.
With its sleek decor, complimentary beer, and flat-screen TVs filling the background noise with Phillies-game highlights, I’m Sergio nods to the men's clubs of yesteryear as the barbershop’s talented stylists give each client a modern new ’do. Hair services range from a basic shampoo and style or beard trim, helping guys look spiffy in just a few minutes, to the more indulgent The Cut package, which includes a relaxing warm-towel treatment and head massage. Old-fashioned straight-razor shaves showcase masculine cleft chins, and manly manicures soften hands hardened by too many high fives with the Hamburger Helper representative. To keep up appearances between cuts, I'm Sergio also offers free clean-ups. :m]]
