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.
Gauzy curtains line the path to the cream-colored room where licensed massage therapist Chelsea Oglesby kneads skin and soothes aches. During her Signature massage, Oglesby applies organic lotions and essential oils, calibrating the depth of the massage to suit the pains that her client reports. Hot stones and steaming towels send warmth into muscles, encouraging knots to untie themselves without enlisting the help of a rugged mariner. Clients can also soothe stressed feet with the Sweet Treat, which includes a hot soak and a salt-and-sugar scrub.

An organic airbrush-tanning formula bronzes bodies to one of three sun-kissed sheens, and colorful Lash Candy extensions frame eyes with a rainbow of sparkly hues. The boutique salon is outfitted with dark woods and trendy furnishings, like vintage chic furniture and ambient lighting.
As a licensed massage therapist, nutritionist, and USA Triathlon coach, Elizabeth Bart takes an integrative approach––an amalgam of medicine, nutrition, fitness, and massage therapy to promote over-all wellness. Each session begins with a holistic review, wherein Bart reviews health history, diet, exercise, and your muscles' emo diary entries to create a personal well-being plan.
