Licensed cosmetologist Valerie Giacobbe cuts, colors, and sculpts the hair of male and female clients. Full and partial sets of foil highlights add an appearance of depth to locks, and feather extensions let one look more natural when perched on a telephone wire. She also offers complimentary bang trims, her shears thrumming softly through splits ends and unwanted curls. The rasp of emery boards and the soothed sighs that follow paraffin dips drift from her workstation, and she perks up facades with makeup and arches brows with facial-waxing services.
At Marc Alan Day Spa, a doting cadre of beauticians, aestheticians, and massage therapists pamper patrons with a variety of rejuvenating salon and spa services. During a haircut and style, patrons partake in a consultation, where stylists consider hair type, face shape, and lifestyle. Expert hair tamers then revamp coifs into complementary fashions, washing, trimming, and sculpting locks into a bob, beehive, or bust of Aristotle.
The airbrush artists, stylists, and nail and wax technicians at Ungaro's Le'Spa know that there's no point carrying out aesthetic services if you don't have the right products. To that end, they both use the spa's own line of signature solutions and call upon brands such as Aveda, Bioelements, Rusk, and OPI. Their UV-free tanning spray is applied via an airbrush delivery system, lending a sun-kissed look without risking exposure to harmful rays. On the other side of this full-service salon and spa, stylists add shine and luster to new 'dos with coloring, highlighting, smoothing treatments.
Each stylist and aesthetician at the full-service Salon Evania brings more than 15 years of experience to skin- and hair-beautifying efforts. Before each haircut, stylists assess each client's hair type and blood type, then snip strands and tint tresses into an attractive frame around facial features. Aestheticians cosset bodies in luxurious wraps such as the Egyptian myrrh treatment, which rejuvenates skin with Dead Sea salts and ancient oils while swaddling bodies in soft, genuine Egyptian linens. Nail technicians further enhance appearances with natural manicures and spa pedicures, in which warming paraffin gives toes a feeling of comfort previously available only to feet wearing marshmallow sandals.
The staff at Erica Davis Salon & Spa expertly beautifies clients as hanging lamps glow and a portrait of Audrey Hepburn keeps watch from an eggplant-purple wall. Trained stylists execute a full range of salon services, including haircuts that commence at the black-basined wash station or foil highlights that start by unwrapping a bag of Hershey's kisses. Airbrushes tint skin with spray-on foundation or UV-free tanning mist, and temporary and semipermanent eyelash extensions endow lids with extra flutterability.
The staff at Divine Hair and Color Salon enriches natural beauty by updating hairdos, grooming fingers and toes, and extracting hairs with waxing services. Stylists add volume and drama to locks with extensions that range from 100% human hair to feathers, ribbon, or tinsel, which helps clients fill in if Christmas trees get stage fright.
