The team of aesthetic artists at Luce Salon & Esthetics has been beautifying faces for more than a decade. Their training took place as locally as Boston and as far as Switzerland. To retain a firm grasp of innovative techniques and new trends, their hairstylists attend regular Wella Trend classes when they aren't crafting customized looks with products by Wella, featuring Illumina Color, Sebastian, Nioxin, and Thermafuse. Aestheticians tailor skincare treatments such as facials and waxes to each client's needs and draw from an arsenal of products, including those by G.M. Collin and Image. Mink and silk eyelashes are applied with PremierLash products, and bodies are bronzed with custom spray-tanning services. Nail technicians, alternatively, cosset paws by performing classic manicures with polishes by OPI and Essie, applying hot stones to aching feet, and softening hands with the tears of used candles.

A mere 12 months after Helen Mckenna opened id.Salon, it was voted Best New Salon by the Boston Globe ; four years later, the same publication gave it the honor of Best Salon - West. Chalk that up to the studied stylists, who craft cutting-edge 'dos designed to turn heads, and manicurist Galina Frishman, who has painted the nails of such stars as Jennifer Lawrence, Cameron Diaz, and Sandra Bullock. The space echoes the staff's aesthetic: it's all modern abstract art and minimalist design, a hip spot so encouraging of transformation that you might be tempted to dye the hair on your arm tattoo.

Founded by Helena and Elie Cohen—a master colorist and stylist, respectively—Ardan Medspa + Salon has earned recurring coverage in publications such as Allure and Boston Common and a variety of Best of Boston awards from Boston Magazine for five straight years. Within the salon, the duo and fellow stylists treat manes to designer cuts, color treatments, and other hair services.

Under a physician's guidance, Clinical Director Susan Fallon and her team also use advanced products in their med-spa services, such as the DermaSweep clinical facial that deeply exfoliates without the crystals of microdermabrasion or the chemical solutions of a peel. Further med-spa services include Vaser, and SmartLipo, the latest medical innovations for body sculpting and fat removal.

The studio surrounds guests with relaxing, warm tones and curved lines that create a sweeping, upward energy, encouraging visitors to release their stress and any helium-filled balloons they carried in.

Stepping into Fia Salon/Spa is like stepping into a Mad Max fashion show. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city proper, the owner and namesake has spread her European roots and visionary eye, carving out a landscape that swirls together industrial sensibilities with a steam-punk edge highlighted by gunmetal-gray roses. Yet despite hard accents, the studio space is surprisingly inviting, balancing the chrome and steel with gold and copper and an open layout that gives visitors space to breathe and think. There, perhaps drawing inspiration from the metal spin-lock door or perhaps imagining a vault behind that door filled with toupees, clients dream up fantastic hairstyles that Fia and her staff make into reality.

International training with the likes of Toni & Guy and Vidal Sassoon has helped Fia cultivate a team of skilled master colorists and stylists. To stay swimming in the rushing current of fashion, the team regularly undergoes training on the latest techniques and uses products by Coppola, Sebastian, and Wella to transform looks. Several staffers draw from experience working in salons on Newbury Street and in the greater Boston area, and Boston magazine, which named Fia Salon/Spa the Best in West Boston in 2007, touted the spot's "Newbury Street panache minus the hassle of driving in from the ’burbs." The staffers’ know-how has also earned them recognition on WGBH's Boston A-List, including the award for Best Hair Highlights in 2011. When the team is not tousling hair into the last trend, Fia Salon/Spa's team pamper visages with luxurious skincare treatments aided by Dermalogica products.

The staff at Galina?s European Skincare takes the term ?golden glow? literally. One of its specialties is the Golden Glow mask, a moisturizing blend of oat peptide, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and 24-karat gold dust. This sparkly treatment boosts collagen production and moisturizes skin so that faces look fresher and better able to guarantee a currency. Though not all of the spa?s services incorporate precious metals, they do work to improve the look and feel of skin. The staff members can suggest a combination of facials, peels, microdermabrasion, and anti-aging LED therapy to combat each client's particular skin issues. They also perform manicures and pedicures, apply eyelash extensions, and remove hair permanently using electrolysis.
