Artists are only as good as their tools, which is why the stylists at Ruffled Feathers Studio keep their toolboxes stuffed with haircare products from Pureology, TIGI, Keratin Complex, and Goldwell. Whether stylists are working with men, women, or children, they can add depth and dimension to manes with partial and full highlights or elongate coifs with extensions made from real hair, feathers, and tinsel. The studio’s nail technicians also reach for high-end products from Gelish, Minx, OPI, and CND during mani-pedis, and a full stock of Glad Lash extensions gives eyelids the wind power they need to give their paper airplane an edge over the competition.
A spa is never greater than the sum of its parts. It takes a team of aestheticians, massage therapists, and stylists to carry out the services that keep clients beautiful, relaxed, and healthy. At Fuzion Skin & Body, this truth reflects the staff's belief in a holistic, integrated approach?making each service as much about wellness as beauty. The spa?s facials, for example, improve both the health and appearance of skin with custom cleansing, exfoliation, and masks, while sessions of reiki, reflexology, and other body treatments help balance energy and remove toxins. Of course, Fuzion Skin & Body offers purely aesthetic services such as sugaring, too, promoting wellness by helping clients avoid the impulse to cover their bodies with glitter glue.
Sheera Amundson, the owner of Addicted to Nails, is passionate about nailcare. A 14-year veteran of the trade, Sheera harbors a particular fondness for rock-star nail enhancements. Her flashy designs have even caught the eyes of Perfectify Magazine, where she publishes her two cents from time to time. Sheera's staff believe in the importance of educating their clients about proper nailcare and sanitation. Their nailcare arsenal includes the Sani Bowl–a special sanitized pedicure bowl–and products from Creative Nail Design, Young Nails, and OPI , which they uses to shape fingernails during their signature french manicures.
Many nails arrive at Shears Edge Hair & Nail Salon in a dismal state, brandishing chipped polish or?worse yet?completely naked. Yet, cheerful nail technicians are always ready to take them under their wing, clipping and filing before dressing each nail in a thick coat of polish. Day after day, the staff tends to the last length of each finger and toe, covering tips in CND, OPI, and shellac polish. Additionally, clients can lend hair to hairstylists for a chic cut, or extend an arm or leg so a waxing specialist can gently remove its hair or yell at it through a megaphone until it falls out.
Both women and men turn to one of Madison Avenue Salon & Day Spa's four locations when they need treatments capable of instilling relaxation while rejuvenating looks. In the spa, massage therapists extract tension with hands and hot stones and aestheticians apply nutrient-rich Dermalogica products that hydrate the skin. The salon side of their operation boasts a large team of stylists, who keep current on both office-ready and avant-garde looks with continuing education from Redken.
Aesthetician Summerr Reyna doesn’t focus on pampering her clients. Rather, the owner of GlamSkin takes a results-oriented approach to reversing sun damage, fine lines, and dehydrated skin. But her treatments aren’t meant to be uncomfortable either. Summerr uses a gentle touch when massaging skin-care products into the epidermis during custom facials and removing body hair with Nufree Botanicals. Even her most advanced treatment, micro-phototherapy, works to minimize discomfort while a combination of heat and light enters the skin, aiming to stimulate collagen production.
