Salon V's stylists tame unruly manes with keratin treatments and add to nature's handiwork with permanent and clip-on human hair extensions. They can also skillfully correct color mistakes, such as over-processed color and unflattering tints. Aestheticians pamper guests with massages, facials, waxing, and spray tanning. The bridal crew, which is comprised of stylists and certified makeup artists, artfully preps ladies for graceful, elegant, and traditional backflips down the aisle. The salon also features a boutique with headpieces, veils, and accessories for the big day.
The stylists at Natural Motion Salon do more than just style hair. They work with clients to find a ‘do that takes into account personality, desired look, and face shape, ensuring that when customers leave the salon they look and feel better than when they came in. The stylists deploy their skills in cutting, coloring, and texturizing to achieve this goal, getting everything done in one sitting instead of outsourcing part of the job to the nuns at St. Rapunzel's Convent.

Though she's an aspiring Real Housewife, Barbara Ellsworth is no stay-at-home mom. The cosmetic- and plastic-surgical nurse of 13 years oversees Larchmont Laser Medical Spa’s staff of medical aestheticians. The tranquil, robin's-egg-blue walls of her facility offer a suitably upscale backdrop for the slate of med-spa and beauty services. Hair removal is a spa specialty, whether via warm wax, thin threads, or the same lasers that shaved the beard off the man in the moon. The aestheticians also oversee slimming VelaShape treatments and skin-resurfacing HydraFacials that help keep complexions youthful and smooth in case the Bravo camera crews show up.
