Park Place Salon's talented team heeds the needs of clients' every wisp, strand, and cuticle with a full range of beautifying services and name-brand products. During a facial waxing, aestheticians whisk away facial fuzz on the eyebrow, lip, and chin, sculpting carefully shaped brows and a smooth, hair-free smile. Toes and fingers find fashion-forward freshening with a manicure and pedicure, where one of Park Place Salon’s wizened digit-doctors spruces up paws with an hour-long cleaning, shaping, and polishing. If a tired haircut is keeping hat filler from making new friends, the steady-handed scissors-wielders will consult with each client to find a cut and style that exudes grace and modernity, further enlivening dull tresses with a splash of Goldwell color and a quick lesson in Proust.
Professional nail tech Darci at Nails by Darci at Josephoria Salon & Spa helps clients sport flashier fingers and toes with a vast array of manicure and pedicure services. During the 45-minute express mani-pedi, Darci trims talons, corrals cuticles, and buffs jagged edges to leave appendage tips as smooth as a jazz singer’s rain boots. Hardworking paws searching for more comprehensive pampering can opt for the 60–75 minute spa mani-pedi, which deeply hydrates and de-stresses mitts with a hand butter lotion and massage. After tootises soak in a hot, soothing bath, a sea-salt scrub works to banish coarse spots and freeloading rubber duckies. A deep dermal wrap for hands and feet infuses extremities with comfrey root extract to promote cell regeneration. To cap off both services, Darci daubs nails with a vibrant hue that wins style points during dates, interviews, or competitive scratch-and-sniff competitions.
[[m:####Ando Salon Ando Salon maintains the kind of friendly environment that welcomes walk-ins, although you might want to plan ahead for an appointment with owner Tony. The sought-after stylist and his crew stay busy keeping pace with trends such as ombre highlights, and by acquiring new products such as celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo's line. They indulge their taste for high fashion at monthly Troy Night Out arts events, where their models have worked edgy blowouts inspired by the '80s alongside modern interpretations of pinup glamour. For everyday wear, MoroccanOil products and re-texturing treatments such as Simply Smooth Keratin create sleek, manageable locks, and Wella hair color gives shimmering depth to natural color. Hudson Valley Community College students can cross the street for discounted hair service for their hard-working craniums but will pay full price on nailcare until fingers and toes can earn class credit by showing consistent growth.m]]
