For the past 15 years, Samantha "Sami" Angelini has been manicuring nails, banishing fuzz with honey wax, and wielding makeup brushes. She's freelanced for MAC and Laura Mercier, filling her portfolio with images that typify her natural, yet evocative makeup style. Today, she enhances eyes, lips, and cheekbones with Motives Cosmetics mineral-based makeup. She demonstrates her techniques during one-on-one lessons, and preps brides for their nuptials. Sami's artist's eye also guides her hands as she shapes brows into flattering forms—one of her specialties—or tops finger and toenails in chip-resistant polishes or thimbles.
The team at Sonia Day Spa renders their many decadent anti-aging facials using oft-lauded Elemis products, a luxury British import incorporating high-quality natural active ingredients. Licensed therapists and certified aestheticians share a single driving purpose at the spa: help their clients achieve a relaxing nirvana where they feel beautiful both inside and out. To that end, they perform 10 different types of massage, each of which can be super-boosted with healing aromatherapy or by letting The Hulk do some of the kneading. For those in the grip of Hulk-sized amounts of stress, a longer stay at the spa may be in order. For that, the staff presents various half-day and full-day packages that combine skin-specific facials, mani-pedis, body scrubs, and massages.
In addition to clipping hair into chic and trendy silhouettes, Hair Power Salon's stylists lengthen manes with hair extensions and infuse strands with high beams of color. To transform gnarled hair labyrinths into sleek thoroughfares, the salon administers La-Brasiliana keratin treatments. Unlike other conditioning sessions, which mainly involve stylists hoping really hard at frizzy hair and then smoothing it with their tears of frustration, La Brasiliana gussies up finicky strands with collagen, leaving hair sleek and manageable for up to four months.
Paul Mitchell national educators, Motives by Loren consultants, and an owner who?s been in the field for more than two decades make up the impressive staff at The Hair Spa. This collection of experience and talent surfaces in everything from cuts and coloring to keratin treatments. In addition to hair services, The Hair Spa also offers manicures and pedicures, waxing, and cosmetics.
