The techs behind New Beginnings Nail Salon draw on a collective 27 years experience as they primp acrylic and natural nails with tools cleansed by hospital-grade disinfectants. In addition to mani-pedis, they also offer paraffin treatments, sugar scrubs, and OPI Axxium no-chip polish for pistachio lovers. For brides-to-be and bachelorettes, they host parties with mani-pedis, champagne, and appetizers to prepare them for a fun night out or a walk down the aisle. Nail techs also pamper princesses during birthday parties that include nail designs and cake, with goodies bags for the guests to take home. In an effort to share their knowledge, New Beginnings Nail Salon offers an apprenticeship program that helps aspiring nail stylists earn their licenses through hands-on experience. They also joined the fight against cancer by holding a fundraising event featuring nail art and raffle tickets.
Helmed by 28-year beauty veteran and owner Alfredo Lamparelli, Salon Bogar provides a haven of beautifying services performed at the talented hands of stylists, skin therapists, and makeup artists. Beginning with a skin analysis by a professional pore pamperer, the glow facial gently rejuvenates lackluster epidermises with a series of brightening and tightening steps including an exfoliation, eye-and-lip treatment, and custom finishing mask. As complexions emote a refreshed, youthful glow, hands and arms will enjoy a tendon-untangling massage, preventing them from endlessly caressing newly freed faces.
In a stately studio flanked by white crown molding and sleek black fixtures, the stylists of Suesie's Beauty Salon create relaxing, elegant transformations for their clients. To fashion these hair masterpieces, they draw on an arsenal of products from Kemon, a European color line that is ammonia and PPD free, and Jellua, a squid-ink-based shampoo and conditioner. Artistic cuts that match clients’ hair type and personalities give way to personalized beauty lessons, in which stylists teach clients techniques to keep their new ‘dos looking salon quality at home. For an even bigger metamorphosis, the experts can apply smoothing keratin treatments or vibrant color. They also offer an array of spa services, which range from mani-pedis and waxing sessions to facials and eyelash extensions.
At Salon Aquavit, a dream team of stylists and estheticians work hand-in-hand with clients to provide customized treatments for the hair and skin. Each cosmetic artisan brings their own specialization to the styling chair, whether that’s a keen ability to deal with curly hair or a solid understanding of how to get peanut butter out of one’s eyelashes. Beyond standard salon services, the crew also beautifies bodies and soothes wandering minds with specialized services such as enzyme facials and Reiki therapy.
Certified nail technician Christina Andrews at Salon Tuscany dresses up fingers and toes with vivid shades of polish. She offers detailed manicure and pedicure services, with a specialty in shellac, acrylics, and fills. She works alongside the rest of the salon's staff, led by Rick and Dawne Guay. They offer NEO Hair Extensions (made from 100% human hair), stylish haircuts, color and texturizing treatments, and glamorous faux lashes.
A licensed aesthetician and nail technician, owner Cris-Anne works alongside stylists and a massage therapist to attend to all of clients' indulgence needs. Certified in sugaring techniques, Cris-Anne uproots unwanted strands with an all-natural sugar paste devoid of the harsh chemicals, resins, and bumblebee dander that's found in many waxes. Stylists evict dead ends and dull colors in the salon; in the spa section, aestheticians cleanse and exfoliate faces, and expert kneaders force chronic pains to leave the body.
In order to live up to their business' name, the stylists at Perfect Solution Hair Salon take ample time to get to know their clients. They help them find the right style—such as updos for special occasions—and suggest different services. If a client wants straighter hair, the staff might recommend various keratin treatments. If they want longer locks, the stylists point them toward hair extensions. If they're a snowman, they might recommend forgoing a blow-dry. Of course, the team of trained tress tamers can also maintain current looks with standard haircuts and color treatments for both men and women.
