Whether they're designing new hairstyles or clarifying skin, the team at Capricio Salon and Spa relies on top-shelf salon and spa products. Redken, Davines, Moroccanoil, and Brazilian Blowout are a few of the name-brand products staffers sprinkle over clients during their signature hair services, such as cuts, color treatments, and formal updos. When performing skin treatments, they use Dermalogica products, which omit common irritants, such as lanolin, alcohol, and artificial colors.
Longtime stylist Elizabeth D'Acquisto opened Salone with her mother Penny and has since expanded it twice to accommodate a 14-person staff and shelves of Aveda products. The salon's staff draw on backgrounds in individual styling and aesthetics as they pamper the coiffures, skin, and nails of clients with Aveda products made from earth-culled botanicals. Whether trimming tresses, massaging away muscle aches, or waxing eyebrows to match favorite Flash Gordon villains, stylists produce sleek, professional results.
Asian-inspired folding fans and hand-painted cherry blossoms adorn the walls of Options Salon & Spa, a destination for hair, body, and skin services available six days a week. To create silky smooth locks, the resident stylists reach for KeraCare and Paul Mitchell products as well as natural-looking extensions, which are intricately sewn, fused, or braided into the hair. During exfoliating body scrubs, aestheticians massage epidermises with a sea-salt or sugar mixture, which is blended with aromatic scents such as rose or cranberry pomegranate. The crew also caters to male clientele with personalized spa packages that include a men’s facial, an all-natural mani-pedi, a deep-tissue massage, and an optional celebratory chest bump.
Polished Nail Bar?s experienced nail technicians sculpt finger and toe fashions in a modern salon that features minimalist furnishings and lush, steel-gray wallpaper. Clients can slide briefly into crisp, white mani-pedi chairs for express nail shaping Essie or OPI polish, or opt for signature treatment with an exfoliating scrub and application of soothing botanical lotion. Nimble-fingered nail techs also offer long-lasting Shellac gels, which cling flawlessly to nails for up to 14 days or the duration of roughly 81,000 consecutive high fives.
At Nails By Tracy, standard polish almost seems ordinary. The studio's seasoned nail techs specialize in all sorts of eye-catching digit enhancements—Minx pedicures bestow toes with tattoo-like designs or prints, and Shellac mani-pedis employ durable Shellac polish and UV curing lights to keep nails vibrant and chip resistant for about two weeks. They also perform other digit-related services, including basic, French, and paraffin-based mani-pedis for men and women.
The team at Roots Salon beautifies clients from head to toe with a full slate of services. Stylists revamp manes with trendy cuts and color, as well as add instant length with hair extensions. Inside private rooms, aestheticians tailor treatments to clients’ skin concerns—reducing sun damage with chemical peels and boosting collagen with phyto-stem technology. Soreness melts away beneath soothing massage kneads, and complexions are quickly enhanced with waxing treatments and makeup applications.
