Rimagé's licensed body coddlers treat dermises to a mix of flowing touches and gentle exfoliation coupled with quality skincare products. A selection of massages features the Swedish techniques of pairing long, fluid strokes with an assortment of pressures to improve flexibility and muscle tone and release the tension of being caught making out with your reflection on the side of a lobster tank. Customers who choose a European facial transport pores across the pond to bathe in expertly applied natural ingredients. While a gentle mask or compress cleanses and refreshes visages, mild massages of the neck, face, and décolleté complete a full upper-body pampering, and all customers leave with a recommended care regimen to fool gullible skin into thinking it never left the spa.
Staffed by a team of creative styling professionals and stocked with high-quality haircare and skincare products, 221 Post A Salon is a hub of fashionable makeovers. Stylists build upon their skillful scissor work with coloring, glazing, foils, and Brazilian hair-smoothing treatments. Skincare specialists add a personal touch to their facials with skin analysis and neck, shoulder, and scalp massages. Amid pastel purple walls and chic furniture, manicurists fuss about fingers and toes with mani-pedis, and bridal parties prepping for the cameras can opt for styling and makeup applications—as well as free beverages and pastries for groups of more than five.
Getting a haircut can be a real chore for children. But at Rockadoodledoos, a cut means an invite into the salon's kid-centric party center. Youngsters sporting new 'dos can ride in kid-sized convertibles or play fellow pintsize patrons in Xbox 360 games. Kids seeking more than a haircut can even gather friends for glamour parties, which include complete makeovers with manicures, makeup, and glitter tattoos. Afterward, participants can don a new getup and strut their stuff as part of Rockadoodledoos's pink-carpet fashion show.
Inside a renovated bank vault, stylists in training cut, color, and style the manes of their clients with Paul Mitchell products and techniques. In addition to foil color and highlights, the student stylists provide services such as chemical relaxers, deep-conditioning treatments, and perms.
Though Crystal began her career in salons, she eventually realized that she wanted to take a more personal approach to beautification, with higher stakes. Her talent for prepping brides-to-be pointed her toward a new business: a traveling team, consisting of herself and assistants, that beautifies brides for their wedding day. Her team moves across Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut to visit clients in their homes or wedding venues.
Crystal's services range from detailed hairstyling to traditional and airbrush makeup applications for small and large wedding parties alike. She and her assistants even perform touchups throughout the day, ensuring that the bride's features are always flattered. She also offers à la carte haircuts, color treatments, and makeup appointments.
