Streams of light beam through the open salon, where black styling chairs contrast against the sleek hardwood floors. Here, within Salon Herdis, a multifaceted team offers designer styling and cuts, waxing, facials, massages, and a variety of skin treatments. As a Redken-certified salon, stylists deploy the company?s renowned products during hair services and coiffure coloring, performing individual consultations to tailor their services for each individual client.
At Hands on Healing, massage therapist Joanna Wilson doles out an array of soothing massages, such as certified oncology massages and signature Joannassage treatments. This latter massage helps alleviate stress and tension with a full arsenal of techniques, including Swedish strokes, trigger-point therapy, and hot stones that were deemed "just right" by Goldilocks. On top of everything, Wilson also performs skincare treatments such as facials and chemical peels.
If two heads are better than one, then it would stand to reason that 15 heads are 15 times better than one. The 15 stylists at Salon Advantages make a formidable team, utilizing advanced products and the Redken Professional Hair Color line to create styles that turn heads but don’t attract swarms of angry bees. The salon's colorist blends custom shades that add depth, dimension, and shine, while shears-wielding hair technicians shape face-flattering styles with deftly snipped angles and layers.
Patrick Viteri founded his salon in 1984, when both hair bands and the hair of Margaret Thatcher were at the peak of their popularity. Armed with DevaCurl and Paul Mitchell products and years of experience, he and his locally trained team wrangle tresses at New York, Boston, and Toronto hair shows when not cutting hair, coloring it, or serenading clients' wild curls. Sponge-painted walls, reddish-brown brick, and cozy, olive-toned chairs await visitors, who settle onto blond wood perches to receive deep-conditioning treatments in the sun-flooded space.
The sounds of waves and birds. Flower arrangements. White leather furniture. Your senses tell you you?re in the tropics, but you?re actually at Tropical Tan, settling in for a relaxing bronzing session in one of the studio?s UV or sunless tanning booths. Voice automated and complete with dryer function, the California Tan Sunless machine spritzes down bodies with a glow that lasts for up to seven days.
The Ivy Tanning Salon and Spa's stable of nail artists, massage therapists, and aestheticians caters to every beauty whim with a spectrum of treatments. During mani-pedis, technicians pull from either standard polish or long-lasting Shellac to add color and ?Paint Me? notes to nails. Massage therapists narrow their scope to focus on one tense area during regional massages or combine hot stones and Swedish strokes to restore beleaguered muscles throughout the body. Nine types of facials tend to age-specific needs, such as removing impacted glitter makeup from teenaged pores or smoothing out wrinkles with doses of vitamin C. There are even multiple ways to achieve a bronze: through five types of UV tanning beds or painstaking spritzes from an airbrush artist.
