Current owner Flora Suissa and the founders of Suissa Salon trained in Paris and Montreal before opening their first salon in 1970 in the US. They took what they learned in the City of Light and the Province of Poutine, and created their own brand of salons. It was only a matter of time before their style shops grew into myriad locations.
Today, Suissa features a roster of talented stylists, aestheticians, and nail artists. They've also got an ace up their sleeve: Eve Diaz, who developed her own line of beauty products?LaPenotiere?which is the primary product line featured here. Armed with talent and products, stylists deliver haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments that discipline frizzy and static-addicted hair. They also offer weft tape extensions and hijab services, offered in private suites. Suissa's stylists pride themselves on their versatility, which means they're familiar with a large and diverse client base and are adept at working with clients of all ethnicities and a wide range of hair types.
A team of nearly 20 beauty professionals run Dolce Vita Salon & Spa, each member bringing unique talents and style to the massage table or styling chair. Inside the salon, hair professionals utilize Schwarzkopf and ColorProof haircare products as they cut off split ends, deep-condition damaged strands, and apply highlights or full-color treatments. Men can choose from a list of specialized services that include grey-hair camouflaging and brow waxing. Women can also enjoy classic cosmetic services such as makeup applications or eyelash tinting and extensions. Outside the salon, spa professionals—including licensed aestheticians and massage therapists—welcome both sexes to indulge in a cleansing SkinCeuticals facial or a soothing Swedish or reflexology massage.
The beautification experts at Prima Hair & Day Spa keep their clients' appearances in tiptop shape via salon, spa, and clinical skincare services. In addition to designing haircuts and painting in highlights, stylists can apply relaxers to type-A strands and craft up-dos for special occasions. During a microdermabrasion treatment, a specialist exfoliates skin with a diamond-tipped wand, sloughing away the top layer of cells most susceptible to sunlight, aging, and holiday cheek pinches. Below-the-neck pampering treatments include waxing, massage, and laser hair removal for lasting smoothness.
The stylists and relaxation experts at Nouvelle Salon keep themselves at the forefront of the beauty industry, offering the latest hair-, nail-, and skincare trends, including Shellac gel manicures and jelly pedicures. Classic accents, such as a crystal chandelier, elegant wall sconces, and tall white columns, evoke the feeling of a European retreat or Cecil B. DeMille storage space, swathing guests in timeless luxury made all the more impactful by modern touches, such as white leather salon chairs.
A team of trained technicians, master aestheticians, and massage therapists pampers and beautifies bodies in a bright, contemporary salon and tranquil treatment rooms awash in soothing earth tones. Staff guide guests through the spa to allay fine lines and age spots in facials with Guinot Paris and nutrient-rich Dermalogica products, oust stress with relaxing massages, detoxify skin with thermal mud wraps, and pamper nails with a list of nail services. Three levels of hairstylists transform manes with professional products from Moroccanoil, Wella, and Bumble and bumble, crafting looks as sculpted as the bar soap in Michelangelo's shower. The generous crew has also raised money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure by styling clients with pink hair extensions.
