Stylists. Makeup artists. Aestheticians. Massage therapists. Nail technicians. The lengthy staff roster at Mancini Giuffre represents the salon and spa's lengthy list of services, all performed by experts in their respective fields. Skilled hands cut and color hair, deep clean pores with facials, and soothe achy muscles with just the right massage strokes. They also take their treatments outside of the confines of Mancini Giuffre, beautifying wedding parties before they walk down the aisle.
The epidermal experts of Skin Station possess the skills and professional products required to banish almost any skin imperfection they encounter. Clients can browse a menu of more than 30 facial treatments to find the one that best targets their face's unique issues, then bask in even more individualized care as aestheticians tailor each regimen to suit their skin type. Serums from Clarins Paris, Dr. Oasis, and G.M. Collin delve deep into tissues to hydrate, heal, and break up bacteria house parties, and more advanced treatments, ranging from chemical peels to 24-karat gold facials, forge speedy results. For the rest of the body, waxing services go hand-in-hand with LHE hair-removal treatments to leave skin smooth and fuzz-free.
At Gruppo Creativo, follicular excursions begin with a thorough consultation, during which an experienced hair designer collaborates with clients to determine their ideal look. The stylist then hand paints various tendrils with the heat-less balayage highlighting technique for a low-maintenance, natural look that tends to grow out without calling attention to heads with obvious roots or dirty curse words. Stylists then scrub strands clean before applying one of six L'Oreal Power Dose conditioning treatments, with different formulations for damaged, colored, fine, and aging hair. Lastly, a haircut and blow-dry slice and smooth away rogue bristles, leaving locks more trimmed than an overachieving Christmas tree.
Before inviting clients into her chair, Salon Alchemy’s owner and creative director, Rita, studied at the elbow of a L’Oréal educator in Manhattan, learning complex coloring techniques such as French highlights and prismatic formulation. Today, she applies this knowledge when infusing ’dos with balayage and ombre highlights, and erasing wild house-painting accidents with color correction. She also channels her creative energy through her scissors, which seek out optimal styles in accordance with her client’s hair type and facial shape.
At Beauty SQ, hairstylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians administer a wide variety of treatments aided by OPI and BSQ gel polishes, naturally derived Aveda products, and deluxe Bumble and Bumble haircare serums. Therapists ease muscles with Western- and Eastern-style massages, such as deep tissue, acupuncture, herbal reflexology, and Chinese tui na, a technique similar to Swedish massage that aims to positively redirect chi, or energy, throughout the body. Aestheticians create tailored weight-loss packages by combining targeted massage with other treatments, such as body wraps or facials administered prejog.
The vibrant red paint on the far wall of Beauty Mark stands in contrast to the elegant wooden mirrors that line the salon. This mix of impassioned energy and stately cultivation also informs the abilities of the salon's expert stylists, who craft classic and avant-garde coiffures for men and women alike. They couple these custom cuts with color treatments that subtly shift hair's chromatic register or overhaul it completely.
