At Rossi's Salon and Spa, located inside the Plaza of Paradise Village, a team of independent stylists wields scissors, shears, curling irons, and dyes to create unique hairstyles for all who walk through their doors. As hair gurus transform manes, nail techs perform mani-pedis, and a massage therapist fights muscle pain with six modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone therapy. The staff also performs facials and waxing services for those who want to put the finishing touches on their more refined look.
When it comes to beauty treatments, O'Leisure Hair Design does a little bit of everything. Licensed stylists here use AG Hair Products and perform chic haircuts and keratin smoothing treatments, and spa treatments such as hair removal, eyelash extensions, and nail services are also available. You can get even eyebrows with a threading session, too, or renew your skin and up your pH levels with an ultra-hydrating facial. There are private spa rooms for all waxing, massages, and facials.
Between working, working up an appetite, and working out, it can be hard for a busy person to work on their skin. That’s why Girl on the Go! Night Spa stays open until 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, and until 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, offering beauty services that cater to the packed schedules of nine-to-fivers, students, and London Guards prone to acne. The unique, one-on-one appointment system ensures each client commands the entire spa to themselves, soaking in the peace and quiet as skin luxuriates in hydrating facials and antioxidant-rich body treatments. Despite its feminine moniker, the spa also tailors skin treatments and waxing sessions to suit the needs of guys on the go, and its reliance on organic products from Epicuren, Ilike Organic, Yonka, and Lucrece keeps services accessible to eco-conscious complexions.
In 2007, Jessica Reid graduated from Paul Mitchel the School, but her education didn’t stop there. The stylist, who specializes in color, cutting, and Brazilian Blowouts, continues to take advanced classes to stay up to date on style trends.
When she’s not in class, she wields her scissors at Salon on 30th, which is nestled amidst the South Park's cafés and boutiques, European markets, and international cinemas. At Salon on 30th, Jessica enhances the neighborhood’s curb appeal through her clients, accenting strands with dramatic color, sweeping hair into special-occasion updos, and taming wild frizz with smoothing treatments or a miniature lion’s whip and stool.
Jeanne-Michelle Skin Care & Studio ensures its clients feel beautiful from head to toe. Starting at the top, facials and microdermabrasion treatments clear dirt and debris from the pores to keep skin looking clean and youthful. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair from limbs and torsos and spray tanning leaves skin with an even glow. Jeanne-Michelle Skin Care & Studio also caters to groups with bridal services and pamper parties, during which friends bond over facials and debate which Supreme Court justice would win a nine-way wrestling match.
