At Belisa Salon, owner Smita Dharankar calls upon a cosmetology certification and skills honed at New York City's Chic Studios to bring clients the most advanced hair services available. Leading a talented team of stylists, Smita's dexterous hands wield shears, razors, and texturizing scissors as she creates cutting-edge looks for men, women, and kids. But it's the salon's hair-coloring expertise that really sets it apart. Its stylists are experienced in altering hues, from color correction to highlights, and one even serves as a certified Redken colorist. Beyond hairstyling, Belisa Salon also offers facials, makeup application, and waxing services.
Andrea Carangelo viewed her brother, Mark, as a miracle worker. She watched as he used his skills with massage to help people manage the pain of multiple sclerosis. Later in life, she experienced an injury so intense that she couldn’t walk—a back surgery damaged her femoral nerve—and it was her brother’s massage work that helped her regain use of her leg.
Those memories remain with her today, guiding her vision for Massage Therapy & Wellness Center. Andrea draws upon more than 10 modalities—her specialties being warm-bamboo and hot-stone massage—as well as upgrades such as aromatherapy to tailor each of her 60- to 120-minute custom massages. After leading a consultation to identify her client's concerns, she keeps communication open throughout the session, explaining every technique she uses and tapping tension-releasing commands to muscles via Morse code. She typically applies a light oil or gel to enhance bodywork, and for especially intense problem spots, she may apply Prossage ointment to radiate warmth deep into tissue layers. Her studio augments the relaxing effects of massage by surrounding clients in soft lighting and calming music.
The licensed massage therapists at Alleviations Massage & Bodywork Spa relieve stress using a variety of modalities targeted to visitors’ specific needs. You can opt for a massage geared toward relaxation, or go for a sports massage to enhance your performance on the field, court, or Quidditch pitch. Deep-tissue massages target chronic pain, whereas aromatherapy wraps do their part to rid the body of toxins.
The stylists at Salon DP LoRana care for hair of all types, whether it's long and curly or pixie-cut and straight.

Salon DP LoRana also offers extensions and Brazilian blowouts for more dramatic hair-based transformations.
With more than 30 years of experience, the owner of Reflections Hair Salon leads a carefully chosen cadre of stylists, many of whom wield more than a quarter century of experience themselves. Throughout highlights and other color services—the salon's specialty—the team spritzes locks with a full line of Matrix color products, designed to infuse hair with the vibrant hues of a technicolor rubik's cube.
Drama Salon owner Steven Camins, a former manager of Vidal Sassoon Salons in New York and California, and his staff stay up to date on the top beauty trends and techniques with classes and seminars. “We each have a responsibility to make the client look and feel their best,” Camins told the Home News Tribune, which reported on the salon’s in-depth consultations. All the extra training means all stylists are expert colorists who specialize in hair-straightening keratin treatments and custom extensions for professional head-bangers. The team also keeps clients’ nails at their best with french and Shellac manicures.
