True to its name, Fresh Start Skincare & Laser Tattoo Removal Specialists provides specialized skincare treatments and safely, permanently remove tattoos. Technicians certified by the National Laser Institute clear away unwanted tattoos with lasers that are gentle enough to leave skin undamaged but strong enough to break down even stubborn ink colors such as green, blue, and black.
On the skincare side, staffers perform treatments that can take years off the face. Microdermabrasion and microneedling treatments restore a youthful glow to skin, and Hydrafacial treatments use water to cleanse the skin and gently improve its texture. Other services include spider-vein removal treatments and age-defying dermal fillers.
Exposed chrome ducts, a black ceiling, and track lighting inform the urban ambience at Style My Mop, a full-service salon for men and women. The staff sits their clients down at cushioned leather chairs near flat-screen TVs and verdant plants to update hairstyles with cuts and colors. Their specialty Keratin smoothing treatments transform frizzy or dull hair to sleek styles, and their full and partial foils splash color onto locks. To boot, the stylists are as friendly as a dog that knows there's a treat in your mouth and wants it.
At Salon Laura Michaels, which earned a Best Boston Hair Salon award in 2005, stylists apply high-end products from brands such as Goldwell and Moroccanoil during haircuts, highlights, and conditioning services. Strands soak up a hydrating elixir during deep-conditioning treatments, which help prevent hair from breaking or becoming an actual bird’s nest. Stylists wash, cut, and style coiffures into face-flattering designs, adding partial or full highlights to attract attention more tastefully than a tub of popcorn chatting on a cell phone. During the one–two hours of pampering, visitors can take in Laura Michaels’ modern décor, which encompasses droplights, sleek wooden floors, and an end-table with quirky cut-outs.
The stylists at A & A Hair Boutique don’t rely on their wits alone to cut and color hair. They also receive professional training from such well-known brands as Bumble & Bumble, Redken, SoCap, and Oribe. All of this training comes in handy when it’s time to enhance their clients’ scalps with highlights, glaze treatments, and SoCap hair extensions. For evidence that the stylists are always at the cutting edge of their field, look no further than the sulfate-free keratin products and highly charged electrical sockets with which they straighten hair.
De Novo is as much a salon as a swank artist's loft. The recently-renovate space invites relaxation while guests await the expert snipping of De Novo's stylists, who transform tresses with products by Moroccanoil, American Crew, and Keune. But haircare is just a part of the salon's services. Guests may request a waxing session to nix unwanted hair, or a special occasion makeup session to transform a full-length mirror into a sophisticated dinner date.
