The beauticians at La Belle Moi Salon & Skin Studio pamper skin and pacify muscular aches with a slew of haircare, skincare, and massage services. Bridal makeup applications prepare women for the big day, when Earth rotates about its axis in slightly more than 24 hours. Additionally, spa manicures can prep fingers for ritual puppet shows at the wedding reception. The studio’s spa area glimmers with light from crystal-laden overhead chandeliers as clients wait on cozy plush chairs and couches amid zebra-striped curtains. Fine, knee-high vintage wood tables fleck the landscape, matching the dark stained hardwood floors on which they stand. In the massage room, flickering candles illuminate a wood carving of a peacock to remind guests of their beauty, and an ornate clock proves that even Father Time can dress up.
Ask for razor cutting or a flat-iron finish at some salons and you'll be politely told they don't do that there. But at Mauro Tollis Salon Hair Colour Group it would be no problem. That's because the salon's stylists engage in continuing education to keep up with the latest in cutting and styling hair. From Japanese straightening treatments to the Bio Ionic Kerasmooth keratin service, the salon is plugged into new and trendy techniques.
The powerhouse trio behind V'Va Hair Salon knows how to handle an unruly mane. Owner Vanessa and her well-coifed stylists, Jessica and Jamie, deftly transform hair from so-so to chic with the help of professional-grade tools including shears, coloring solutions, and air-funneling blow-dryers. The result? Fashionable, expertly styled locks left free from frizz after Keratin treatments or shining after applications of glaze conditioner. The trio also delivers stunning wedding-day makeovers for brides-to-be, and helps those less-than-confident with an eyelash curler with makeup lessons or analysis of that nightmare with the laughing mascara.
At Sorelle Spa Salon, custom facials infused with botanically derived Aveda and Bumble and bumble products target everything from blemishes to aging skin. Nail technicians, meanwhile, glaze fingertips with OPI or Shellac polish after dipping hands and feet in paraffin and exfoliating them with a gentle scrub. Sorelle Spa Salon's massage therapists prefer to relax tense back muscles with hot stones, a safe alternative to hot coffee mugs.
Although the decor of many tanning salons takes inspiration from the beach, Euro Tans' waiting room speaks to an elegant spa experience. Upon stepping into the beauty haven, customers are greeted by marble tile, white-leather couches, and Grecian columns framing the entrance to the tanning area. Within, clients bronze their skin via tanning beds and booths, Mystic and airbrush tanning, and solar flares sealed inside of mason jars. Apart from tanning, the Clifton location offers waxing services for both men and women using hard-wax systems made to improve comfort during waxing. The spa also provides relaxing facials for clients seeking to unwind.
Bellatair Salon's experienced stylists have been beautifying clients with hair extensions, highlights, and other salon services for almost 30 years. Inside the sunlit, spacious studio, they wield their scissors at workstations set wide apart, so that there's room for them to celebrate each finished haircut with a victory cartwheel. When not executing makeovers, Bellatair's staffers collect donations for charities such as Toys for Tots and the Pajama Program.
