Owner of The Main Switch Beauty Salon, master stylist, and National Educator for Paul Mitchell, Sonia Santavenere has assembled an experienced team of stylists that specialize in hair of all types and textures. A Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, The Main Switch taps into Paul Mitchell's extensive selection of products when straightening, coloring, and conditioning locks. In addition to their haircuts and chemical treatments, the staff also overhauls style with weaves, updos, styling services, manicures, and waxing services.
Jessica's Color Room Salon founder and master colorist Jessica Sassu doubles as a national educator for Paul Mitchell products, and her Paul Mitchell Focus Salon has been named the Best Hair Salon by CT.com. Calling on her background, Jessica appreciates the importance of consistent education, which is why she continually sends her staff to attend haircare workshops and advanced styling seminars. Her efforts have created a team of service-oriented stylists versed in contemporary hair-coloring and design techniques. Their services take place in a salon whose funky and modern ambiance is accented by tones of purple and black. Each visit begins with an interview so that clients can thoroughly express their desires before stylists offer their own expertise, then proceed to make those desires a reality.
EG Salon's team of design-driven stylists focus their skills on both taming wild coifs and educating coif-owners on how to preserve the post-salon look. The Coppola Keratin Express Blowout smoothens unmanageable hair, smiting frizz, curls, and pompous pamphleteers with its signature formaldehyde-free formula. After fortifying noggins, the Coppola Keratin acids employed simply decompose when heated, thereby strengthening the hair from within for a safe, effective procedure. Delivered via skilled, friendly stylists, the treatment imbues shine and silkiness to head-fur, complementing EG Salon's warm décor and sleek floors.
Certified and licensed massage therapist Kate Zahorodni soothes clients with Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages. After a brief chat, she customizes the treatment to address each client's concerns. Her additional add-ons increase the relaxation factor, including essential oils, a bio-freeze treatment, or a robe made from the leather of a recliner chair. Kate is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association.
After graduating from Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 2009, Trish Burdett established Thoughtful Touch and joined the ranks of the American Massage Therapy Association. Not one to rest on her laurels, Trish continued to expand her stress-taming repertoire by seeking certification in hot-stone therapy; training with Liddle Kidz founder Tina Allen; and tailoring techniques for expectant mothers with Elaine Stillerman, the pregnancy massage pioneer behind Mothermassage. Much like a cat who can work a calculator, Trish's range of massage techniques—from chair sessions to custom-tailored therapies—can instill a sense of joy while dispelling math-inspired headaches.
