International Institute of Cosmetology founder Carmelo Gugliotti began his career as a professional hairdresser when he was 16. He gradually built his passion into a successful business, entering international competitions and earning leadership positions within multiple cosmetology groups. Now supported by his beauty-minded family—including his wife and three sons—Gugliotti trains stylists and aestheticians in rigorous, accredited courses.
As part of their training, students offer a full menu of hair, nail, and spa services that incorporates Wella coloring and Dermalogica skincare products. Instructors supervise each treatment to ensure pupils don’t disregard protocol or use their untutored genius to make clients too beautiful for this world.
The crew at Salon Serenity celebrates beauty every day with haircuts, waxing, color, and restructurizing treatments. Using trusted products by Colorly and Wella for hair, Serenity's beauty professionals are able to customize looks for each client. The same attention to detail is shown in the salon’s streamlined, nature-evoking decor. Sunlight gushes through floor-to-ceiling windows, which look upon the rest of the salon, which features multi-tone wood floors and mirrors in ornate gold frames creating a professional environment with a dash of home.
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.
Naked nails catch no one's eye, so the technicians at Princess Nails commit themselves to prettifying clients' digits. They do this with shiny mani-pedis with either plain color or a range of swirly, glittery nail art, including flowers, dots, and hearts that sparkle brighter and last longer than gluing sequins to each nail. Stubby fingernails gain a longer look from acrylics, while feet get the same meticulous attention during pedicures.
