Licensed aestheticians at Art of Aesthetics Skin Care tailor each skin care treatment to their clients' needs. They believe in diagnosing and preventing skin issues instead of finding a quick fix. They also enhance their custom facials with specialty mask treatments such as the Myoxy-Caviar mask to fight wrinkles, and the soothing rosacea treatment packed with green tea, chamomile, and licorice.
It's understatement to say Trendsetters of Cheshire's owner Joan Morgan knows her way around a salon chair. After all, the Paul Mitchell–trained stylist has been brandishing her scissors for more than 19 years, 15 of which were spent in management. She even flaunts her expertise outside of the salon as an educator and advisor for Joico/ISO's and Beth Minardi's signature product lines. The impressiveness doesn't end with the owner—the other expert stylists remain on the cutting edge of the latest trends and industry techniques, too. In addition to trimming hair and rooting out long-lost hair picks from the 1970s, the talented staffers can add color, perform chemical treatments, and oversee advanced procedures such as Awapuhi KeraTriplex frizz-nixing treatments. The salon menu even extends to airbrush tanning and waxing, so customers can put the finishing touches on their new looks in one fell swoop.
Dean and Lisa Rodrigue always talked about opening their own salon. In 2010, they took the leap and founded Couture Salon, a chic hair salon with dark hardwood floors and upscale touches like brocade accent walls. Since opening they business, they’ve sharpened their hair-styling skills and broadened their service menu. In addition to waxing and spray-tan treatments, they offer facials and eyelash extensions. Couture Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays to accommodate the moon if it needs a haircut and those with busy work schedules.

The friendly and cozy Salon Le Rae invites sun-starved patrons to enjoy a golden color touch-up with natural-looking airbrush tans. The 30-minute treatment employs an eco-friendly product made by Biddiscombe, a U.V.-free tanning mist that leaves skin with a flattering bronze glow. Like endless workweeks and most junior-high relationships, the tans generally last 7 to 10 days. The French-inspired salon welcomes guests into its elegant space, with stenciled, mustard-brown walls accented by white trim and satin curtains.
A licensed health professional, Tracy Hill Fisher wields a combination of sterile probes and know-how during hair-removal treatments at Electrolysis of Wallingford. During electrolysis sessions, she uses a fine probe to release a burst of energy in hair follicles, destroying both the cells and the follicles' ability to grow new hairs. Electrolysis, which works on all skin and hair types, leaves treated areas across the body and face permanently hair-free and smooth.
