At Salon Amore, stylists complement transformative hair, nail, and body treatments with personal attention and modern sensibilities. Products such as Kenra and Pureology cameo in stylistic overhauls as hairdressers trim and shape strands into glamorous hairdos and highlight strands like a college student reading Cliff's Notes. More extensive treatments, such as keratin smoothing care and hair extensions, round out the salon menu, and spa services such as facials, nailcare, and massages invite age-defying specialists to drop their magic below the forehead and give the entire body a stunning glow. The salon also hosts an in-shop boutique with an eclectic assortment of jewelry, lotions, gifts, and decor items.
At Advanced Cosmetic Skin Care Clinic and Advanced Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery, a staff of medical and aesthetic experts transform clients with a variety of cosmetic procedures. Dr. Mahjouri, a plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of experience, specializes in face lifts and tummy tucks but also provides medical direction of the skin care arm of the operation. Directed by Sussan Mahjouri, leads a group of licensed aestheticians who provide clients with innovative and safe treatments including peels, microdermabrasion, photo facials, and laser hair-reduction treatments.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, such as the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The beauty team at Villager Salon and Spa pampers and primps clients in a combined spa and salon setting. On the salon side of the facility, a small band of experienced hair stylists with years of experience bestows hair sculptures with a parade of high-end hair and beauty products by Paul Mitchell, Coppola, and Kenra. Villager's equally tight-knit spa technicians carry out their own collection of services, each with a diverse skill set that encompasses trigger-point massage techniques, waxing, and the use of hot stones for massages and extreme juggling.
Hair Trinity Salon's staff describes its workplace as a "family-friendly salon," where it invites clients of all ages to commission styles. The diversity of these potential looks is evident in the studio's portfolio, whose offerings range from cobalt-blue stripes on a white pixie cut to intricately woven updos. Once they have chosen a look, clients sit in black-leather salon chairs beneath studio lighting, while a stylist cossets their hair with products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Eufora.
The seven cosmetologists at JB Cavour Salon Spa wield more than a century's combined experience in the beauty business, as well as an arsenal of botanical Aveda products. Now in its second generation of family ownership, the recently renovated sanctuary keeps a healthy stream of “ahhs” flowing out the big bay window with luxurious massage, skincare, and hair services.
