Through detailed consultations, the seasoned staff at Townsquare Hair Associates adapts its aesthetic approach to suit each client's complexion, hair type, or nails. Stylists trim and dye new 'dos, and technicians primp hands and feet with mani-pedis. Meanwhile, custom facial treatments—from microdermabrasion sessions to peels—reveal newly radiant features, aided by products from Clinical Care Skin Solutions.
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum trains fledgling spa and salon technicians in the ways of the scissors and the cucumber slice. These able aesthetician aspirants perform the Academy's variety of services under the watchful eye of a licensed and experienced instructor. With a customized facial treatment ($30), they'll replace your face's neon-green glow with a healthier radiance by cleansing, exfoliating, and balancing dizzy skin tissue. An acne-clearing treatment ($36–$40) targets and evicts any insurgent blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed redheads that have been vandalizing your pores. Broken, tattered, or torn nails can be carefully repaired for $3, and more ambitious customers can luxuriate in a complete French manicure ($18–$19) before chasing it with a spa pedicure ($24–$25) in a throne chair salvaged from the spa in Tutankhamun’s tomb. A trained sculptor of scalp whiskers can tame your hairy head monster into a stylish new 'do ($7–$8), then color it ($28–$30) so that you blend in with the fall foliage and evade hungry ogres on quiet walks through the forest.
The citrus-scented air might be the first thing patrons notice as they enter the amenity-filled salon. If not that, then perhaps the massage chairs, plush and beckoning a body to sit down and relax. At Elegant Nails, the little things make a big difference, as does the staff of nail technicians who fuss over fingers and toes with fine detail and clean equipment. Services include deluxe pedicures with sea salts and mint masks, shellac manicures, and mani-pedis for children whose nails have been attacked by the backyard dirt.
Red hanging lights throw rounded shadows across Sweet D's hardwood floors and sunflower-yellow walls. Amid these modern accents, skilled stylists cultivate face-flattering cuts and rewire hair circuitry with sleek color highlights. Clients may also solicit an aesthetician for a swift brow wax or a long-lasting gel mani-pedi with Axxium or CND polish.
