Bubblegum pink. Sugary treats. Rhinestones and glitter. Sweet & Sassy?s stylists pamper moppets during shrunken-down spa treatments spun with these elements. As tots lounge on tangerine pillows, kid-calibrated manicures and pedicures bejewel their keratin shields with sparkly nail art and adorn their favorite digits with rings and toe rings. Facials slather visages with gentle, sweet-smelling concoctions, and ear-piercing services add appropriate glint to kids' facial regions so that they can stop lodging beads in their nostrils. For birthday parties, celebrants can arrive in the spa?s pink limousine before strutting down the runway in Sweet & Sassy?s glittery gowns.

At each of Tricho Salon and Spa?s four locations, trained stylists stand ready to refresh outdated hairstyles with products by Schwarzkopf, Bumble and bumble, Keratin Complex, and Moroccanoil. Dr. Sonya Friedman, an accomplished author, CNN talk-show host, and radio psychologist, teams up with dermatologist Dr. Scott Friedman to helm the spa side of the business, where clients can find eight types of facials, nine styles of massage, noninvasive micro treatments, and advice for mending a hairdryer?s broken heart. Fingertips and toes in need of some TLC can also be pampered inside this full-service beauty haven, as nail techs doll-up digits with OPI and Essie polishes as well as Shellac, acrylic, and fiberglass tips.
Though the hairstyles that emerge from Elle Studio’s doors are often described as cool, this salon’s interior emanates warmth. Here, guests can relax by a cozy fireplace or bask in the sheen of silver-framed mirrors and polished wooden floors. Talent also shines from stylists’ shears, which snip men’s, women’s, and children’s locks into custom ’dos. To turn brunettes into blonds and redheads into doves, the coiffing crew summons the transformative properties of Goldwell colors. Products by Kérastase, Kevin Murphy, and EVO fuel the hair-wrangling process, nourishing dry strands and catching flyaways. When they’re not painting lips and lashes for photo shoots, resident makeup artists lead lessons with their wands and brushes. The staff also specializes in NovaLash extensions, which make eyelashes as long and full as a dachshund after Thanksgiving dinner.
Terri Sitto called on more than 24 years of salon and business know-how to open Day Dream Nails & Spa. The facility and its specialists exhibit dedication to beautification, health, and relaxation with services such as waxing, mani-pedis, and facials. The spa can accommodate up to 15 guests for private parties, where visitors can spruce up skin and nails while munching on hors d’oeuvres, sipping adult beverages or soft drinks, and whacking a piñata filled with facial creams.
Before the techs at Novi Nails and Spa set about grooming a set of cuticles or shaping a tensome of nails, they direct clients to the salon's colorful collection of more than 200 polishes. They stock OPI, CND Shellac, and Gelish varnishes as well as UV powder-gel nails and OPI acrylics. Waxing treatments whisk unwanted hair away from the face, body, or molars, whereas lash extensions add length and flutter to lids.
Although Julie Cotton has been painting for almost two decades, her canvas isn’t canvas—it’s nails. As a master nail technician at Salon D’Mars, she brightens fingers and toes with signature nail-art designs, french tips, and long-lasting OPI gel polish, which has been proven to be more durable than regular polish, even after each nail has been carefully bound in bubble wrap.
