A visit to Products Salon could involve a haircut, manicure, facial, or massage. The welcoming salon imbues each of their services with an emphasis on personal attention and friendliness. Whether clients kick their feet up and let a nail technician lavish their toes, lower themselves onto a styling chair for a youthful cut and color, or spread out on a massage table and sigh as every knot and kink slowly unravels, they will walk out the door looking younger and more vibrant than when they entered.
Licensed aestheticians at Art of Aesthetics Skin Care tailor each skin care treatment to their clients' needs. They believe in diagnosing and preventing skin issues instead of finding a quick fix. They also enhance their custom facials with specialty mask treatments such as the Myoxy-Caviar mask to fight wrinkles, and the soothing rosacea treatment packed with green tea, chamomile, and licorice.
GBS Brows has carved out a niche for its four locations by offering beautification treatments not often found at other salons. While they certainly present standard fare such as facials, massages, and waxing, what sets them apart are their two other treatments; threading and henna tattoos. Threading, an alternative to traditional waxing, uses intertwined pieces of thread to remove and shape facial hair with increased precision. Their India-trained henna tattoo artists can create beautiful, often floral-inspired designs that typically last about two to four weeks, like most grade school plays. Each location's décor showcases its own type of elegance, but they all feature bright colors and pleasant flourishes such as plants and paintings.
Unlike the playground game it takes its name from, Rock Paper Scissors Hair Salon has nothing to do with competition. Instead, the staff members—who have more than 35 years of combined experience—emphasize cooperation as they work closely with their clients to craft personalized looks with their extensive assortment of hair services. Inside the modern and sleek salon, in which red fixtures dangle like stalactites, the stylists work their magic with high-end products from Goldwell, L'Oréal, Simply Smooth, and Moroccanoil. The team also encourages clients to enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, wine, or their choice of a high-five or bear hug—but customers must supply the bear.
At Envy Hair Salon, services come without attitude as stylists work with clients to find a flattering style. Owner Nichole Vega creates a laidback environment, replete with neutral walls and wood-framed mirrors that reflect expert cuts and color treatments. Also included in their list of services are airbrush tanning and massage therapy.
The extracts in the facial masks at Dolce Vita Day Spa come straight from the herb garden—ginseng, lavender, rosemary, and olive leaf. These botanical ingredients are used to enhance the anti-aging and cleansing effects of specialized skin treatments, including microdermabrasion that polishes pores with fine pumice crystals. Throughout the spa, such add-ons infuse procedures with a personal touch. Nail technicians top off mani-pedis with a soothing paraffin dip, and massage modalities ranging from Swedish to prenatal and postnatal can incorporate cold-stone therapy to ward off headaches.
Owner Annamaria Morello drafted her treatment menus after years spent working in upscale spas and salons. She and her staff of aestheticians keep abreast of cosmetic trends with a commitment to ongoing education, and they relish the opportunity to combine their services into luxurious packages or group parties. Guests of all kinds enjoy complimentary beverages, snacks, and calming music that isn’t just their waxer gently drumming on their belly in a spa space whose light marble counters, big mirrors, and wooden floors evoke an airy seaside cottage.
