Salon Chic Downtown’s owner, Rose Zagra, draws on 20 years of beauty-industry experience and nine years as a Creative Nail Design master technician to orchestrate a symphony of luxurious beauty treatments. To guarantee personalized service, each treatment, like all good superhero-sidekick relationships, kicks off with a one-on-one question-and-answer session. Salon Chic's nail technicians have all spent at least five years beautifying extremities, and can beautify nails with traditional polish, long-lasting CND Shellac, or artificial tips that lengthen fingers without having to spike the hand cream with fertilizer. The salon’s hair services include texture-altering treatments that range from perms to Brazilian blowouts, and its facials and chemical peels employ products from Bioelements and SkinMedica to rejuvenate skin.
From behind her styling chair at Designer Glitz and Glamour, Lisa Ross cares for natural and chemically treated hair. With the aid of products by Matrix, Silkology, and Clio, she snips strands, colors hair in vivid hues, and styles tresses into elegant updos.
Certified master educator for Brazilian blowouts, Dallia Garza has cultivated a keen eye for style that she wields while working with clients to revamp looks during hair and nail services. She has been a nail artist and stylist for more than 20 years, with four years of experience doing nails and hair for fashion shows and photoshoots. In her cozy studio tucked inside Secret Beauty Hair Salon, the eponymous stylist behind Dallia's Hair And Nail Studio sculpts tresses into works of art with basic cuts and updos and adds dramatic depth with highlights and coloring. For appendages in need of pampering, she smoothes away rough edges during manicure services before topping digits with regular polish, nail art, or a special Shellac formula that lasts up to 14 days, giving clients a break from touchups or constantly wearing steel gauntlets.
White Stone Day Spa is a shimmering oasis amid the stresses of daily life, giving clients a brief respite from the outside world with a full complement of spa and salon services. The day spa continues to evolve its relaxing environment by embracing modern advancements in cosmetic products and technology. Human touch massage chairs transform the most straightforward mani-pedis into truly luxuriant experiences, and those chairs coexist happily with White Stone's human massage therapists, who relieve muscular aches with combinations of Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. During facials, aestheticians pamper clients and their ventriloquist dummies with glo minerals and glo therapeutics skincare products. White Stone Day Spa also stocks diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands and encourages visitors to schedule a detoxifying session in its infrared sauna.
The word yaax literally means ceiba tree in Mayan, but it represents the Tree of Life. At Yaax Salon & Spa, owner Claudeth Garcia and her staff embody its name through wellness treatments aimed at achieving inner balance and outer balance with nature. The staff is so committed to nurturing healthy tresses that they custom hand mix many of their hair products chairside using a carefully selected m?lange of organic ingredients. The now-worldwide salon got its start in trendy Seoul, where a progressive approach to Yaax's hair, skin, and nail treatments keeps the inviting salon free of harmful, unpleasant odors produced by artificial fragrances and formaldehyde.
Men and women both get the royal treatment in the salon chair at Yaax Salon & Spa. With training from acclaimed salons ranging from Vidal Sassoon to Toni&Guy, Yaxx's staff is well-equipped to revamp locks with chic cuts and gentle color serums by Organic Color Systems. Stylists also zap frizz with zero-formaldehyde keratin and japanese straightening treatments, which can last up to 12 months.
The licensed and trained team at Glow Hair Salon & Spa transforms exteriors with quality products in a classic yet contemporary atmosphere. Inside the salon, stylists create new looks with cuts, highlights, and straightening services featuring the botanically based Pureology line. Spa specialists reinvigorate skin with anti-aging facials for both men and women and employ glo therapeutics formulas during custom peels, which exfoliate away dead skin cells accidentally accumulated during late-night séances. Massage therapists soothe weary muscles within the electric-blue walls of Glow's new location, whose grand opening was celebrated in late 2011. Glittering chandeliers and an antique-style dresser juxtapose harmoniously with modern black leather sofas that harbor a secret love of big-band music.
