The stylists and aestheticians of Aria'L Salon and Spa will customize any treatment to the individuals they work with, steering appearances toward clients' unique goals. Hair can look fresher with a subtle, simple trim, or stylists can go all out with updos and color. A sense of natural beauty pervades the skincare branch, with microdermabrasion and deep-cleansing facials going below the surface. When they're beautifying clients, team members rely not only on their own wealth of knowledge but on labels they trust: Revitalash, PCA facial peels, and Schwarzkopf hair products.
Peter Vergos spent 12 years honing his hairstyling skills before he took the reins at Vergo Salon Spa, a salon his mother owned for 25 years before him. With his mother’s continued guidance and his own fresh ideas, he beautifies clients with the latest services, including keratin hair-smoothing treatments and Lox Extensions, which add length and volume to shorter hairstyles or the tresses of prized Barbies.
Mystic Fountain Wellness Center's holistic healers restore bodies with recuperative treatments designed to stimulate natural healing processes, not replace them. These treatments might include the strategic placement of tiny adhesive magnets or the application of soft herb- and aloe-soaked bandages, both of which oust stored stress and toxins. The Himalayan salt room also treats chronic conditions, in particular respiratory issues such as sinus trouble. With its low temperature relative to a typical sauna, the infrared sauna is particularly appealing to clients with a low tolerance for heat or snowmen with an extraordinarily high tolerance for heat.
Bodies dive into a luxurious world of beautification treatments at NY Nails & Spa, where licensed nail technicians bestow guests' finger-and-toe armor with lustrous coats of polish after trimming and buffing cuticles. Warm wax smothers errant hair that veers off eyebrow tracks or surfaces along the lips, legs, or bikini line. Teeth whitening may brighten pearly assets by several shades, while facial treatments smooth visages toughened from the cold of winter, the heat of summer, or the indifferent half sun of spring. NY Nails & Spa accepts reservations and also welcomes walk-ins for those who require immediate indulgence.
The keratin-square technicians at A & J Nails indulge toe tips with soothing, thorough pedicures. Tootsies soften in a relaxing soak before toenails shift shapes to form smooth arches or pointy triangles perfect for precision texting. Cuticles, calluses, and rough patches retreat to reveal velvety skin and long-lost birth marks; then pedicure pros layer polish atop bare nails to ensure that toes make good first impressions on new pairs of autumn boots. Clients can choose their color from a spectrum of high-quality Essie and OPI colors, each designed to attract sleeping puppies to chilled feet.
Village Hair Design first opened its doors in 1958. This old-fashioned barbershop was a haven for men in need of a classic cut-and-shave at a time when it was unseemly to discuss haircuts in public. In 1977, Mike Blaa became an employee and purchased the shop five years later. This licensed barber—alongside his wife Sherry, a licensed cosmetologist, and licensed aestheticians Geenah and Martha—draws on nearly two decades of experience.
Together, they offer an ecclectic mix of services ranging from clipper cuts and classic shaves to perms, mani-pedis, facials, chemical peels, body wraps, and full-body waxing. They also use their skills to serve their community. Since 1981, Mike has helped the men at a Lakeshore nursing home look their best; Sherry spent more than seven years snipping tresses at Misericordia Homes.
