LeMetric Hair Center Inc. founder Elline Surianello knows firsthand how your hair can affect your confidence. At age 9, she began showing signs of androgenetic alopecia, more commonly known as male pattern baldness. Rather than let her thinning hair impact her life, she searched for natural alternatives to combat her condition, and when she couldn't find a suitable solution, she took it upon herself to create one. What started as a personal mission turned into an all-natural, safe hair-loss system that contains no glue and requires no surgery.
Today, she and her staff help women find the looks that give them confidence by offering not only handmade hair systems but also salon services. Staff members clear unwanted body hair during waxing services, polish nails to a vibrant shine with mani-pedis, and infuse skin with nutrients during facial treatments. They even take their beautification mission on the road with a mobile studio that contains hair samples and is fueled by retired wigs.
At the full-service Davidov Hair and Spa, a team of trained stylists, nail techs, and aestheticians dole out whole-body pampering services that can easily transform a maintenance-haircut appointment into a look-refashioning day of beauty. After a session in the stylist's chair, clients' 'dos come away enhanced with expertly applied natural or vibrant color or face-flattering cuts. Relaxing manicures and pedicures add flair and polish to personal style, and waxing services smooth skin from head to hairless big toe. Aestheticians versed in nine distinct facials vivify visages of all skin types, removing impurities from pores and restoring moisture and elasticity to mature skin. To rid the body of both toxins and stress, clients may opt for one of the spa's body-wrap treatments or a Swedish massage administered by a licensed gummy fish.
Stylist Giovanny “Gio” Jorge uses three-dimensional color and angular crops to create catwalk-ready designer looks that celebrate and accentuate each client’s style. Her extensively trained staff members accomplish their artistic visions using eco-friendly products and carefully chosen chemical services such as Opti Smooth relaxing treatments. An expansive selection of hair-extension styles can also fill out clients’ coifs with natural-looking faux strands. After appointments, newly chopped locks shine in the glow of the salon’s sparkling chandeliers, backlit mirrors, and nuclear-powered blow-dryers.
Salon Eco Chic uses only certified organic haircare products that are plant-based and free of ammonia, sulfates, and chemicals. Armed with these eco-friendly tools, stylists perform precision cuts for men and women, nourishing hot-oil treatments, balayage hair painting, and color treatments via Organic Coloring Systems. In addition, they also offer Keragreen keratin treatments, which are designed to straighten and smooth rebellious strands that tangle up into painful knots and what some might consider obscene shadow puppets.
For more than 17 years, Sergio Limpopo Salon's experienced stylists have been taming unruly manes, transforming them into fashion-forward styles. Floor-to-ceiling windows shower salon-goers in natural light and provide occasional glimpses into the future as hair menders commence meticulous cuts, vibrant color treatments, and keratin smoothing sessions. Graffiti dances across the trendy midtown salon's walls, and complimentary beverages slake thirst.
Hair & Spa Party 24 Hours takes to heart New York’s nickname as “the city that never sleeps” by keeping its own doors open 24 hours a day. Clients can walk in at any hour for spa services that range from beautifying facials and waxing to soothing massages. Professional makeup applications accent natural features, and feather hair extensions help humans infiltrate and observe musters of peacocks in the wild. The staff pampers clients at styling stations carved into a gold-tiled wall with dangling chandeliers covered with crystals.
