Classic pedicures, shellac manicures, intricate nail art, and gentle but effective waxing services—Nicole Giorgi does it all. Inside Paul Edward Salon, the professional beautifier spruces up fingernails and toenails and evicts unwanted hair from brows, legs, and bikini lines. She joins a staff of stylists and aestheticians who dedicate themselves to their clients' wellbeing, pampering them with hair styling appointments that employ organic Eufora products. They even render facials that infuse vitamins into the skin, which is more effective than just taping Flintstone chewables on foreheads.
The techs behind New Beginnings Nail Salon draw on a collective 27 years experience as they primp acrylic and natural nails with tools cleansed by hospital-grade disinfectants. In addition to mani-pedis, they also offer paraffin treatments, sugar scrubs, and OPI Axxium no-chip polish for pistachio lovers. For brides-to-be and bachelorettes, they host parties with mani-pedis, champagne, and appetizers to prepare them for a fun night out or a walk down the aisle. Nail techs also pamper princesses during birthday parties that include nail designs and cake, with goodies bags for the guests to take home. In an effort to share their knowledge, New Beginnings Nail Salon offers an apprenticeship program that helps aspiring nail stylists earn their licenses through hands-on experience. They also joined the fight against cancer by holding a fundraising event featuring nail art and raffle tickets.
In order to live up to their business' name, the stylists at Perfect Solution Hair Salon take ample time to get to know their clients. They help them find the right style—such as updos for special occasions—and suggest different services. If a client wants straighter hair, the staff might recommend various keratin treatments. If they want longer locks, the stylists point them toward hair extensions. If they're a snowman, they might recommend forgoing a blow-dry. Of course, the team of trained tress tamers can also maintain current looks with standard haircuts and color treatments for both men and women.
A makeover doesn't have to involve a drastic haircut, a new wardrobe, or a new government-supplied identity. That's why BG Makeovers Advanced Skin Care & Spa co. focuses on simple skin solutions. Inside the beauty hotspot, aestheticians treat a wide range of skin issues with their services. Blackheads and dull skin are no match for the manual exfoliation, extractions, and brightening mask included in the BG luxurious signature spa facial. Age spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone are visibly reduced thanks to the micro needling pen, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. Acne and skin redness decrease with the Osmosis facial infusion, a gentle peel that employs the high-quality Osmosis skin care line.
Though Salon Tuscany's decor is an elegant nod to the Old World—from ceramic pillars crowned with indoor plants to the heavy, gold-framed mirrors that reflect the salon's cranberry-and-gold color scheme—the hairstyles its staff produce are anything but dated. In fact, owners Rick and Dawne Guay's main mission is to provide clients with current yet affordable hairstyles.
To create modern 'dos, stylists employ products from brands such as Redken, Aquage, and Soma, as well as 100% human hair NEO extensions. Salon Tuscany's crew also aims to beautify clients with shellac manicures, which coat nails with 50+ different colors of chip-resistant polish, and with Ardell eyelash extensions. In an effort to stay connected to the community, Salon Tuscany supports charity events such as leukemia fundraisers, and it takes the time to doll-up local celebrities, including Ms. New Hampshire America 2012 contestant, Jennifer Dickson.
Though sun-shaped mirrors and spiraling chandeliers abound in Soleil Salon & Spa, they pale in comparison to clients’ skin after a diamond-facial microdermabrasion. The spa’s aestheticians take their cues from the sun, brightening complexions with custom treatments that target conditions such as acne, fine lines, and inflammation. Not to be outshone, stylists illuminate hair with clear gloss and multidimensional highlights. They draw on an array of professional products from Aveda and label.m, and their commitment to innovation has led to such services as the GKhair keratin-smoothing treatment—an advanced therapy that eliminates frizz for up to five months, or roughly as long as it would take to extinguish the sun with a super soaker.
