Alora Ambiance Spa owner Patricia Rivas has worked as a licensed aesthetician and skincare specialist for nearly a decade. Along the way, she's picked up advanced certifications in treatments such as cellulite-smoothing ionithermie and IPL hair removal, teamed up with Dr. Thomaso Skorupski, and assembled a staff of talented hairstylists, nail artists, and waxing specialists spread throughout two studios. There, staffers dole out specialty services, including eyelash perms and extensions, exfoliating salt-glow treatments, and facials that infuse faces with more oxygen and nutrients than a granola-filled balloon. Beyond stocking the shelves with aesthetic aids from such brands as Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and Pravana, Rivas is also the creator of the Ayurveda by Alora skincare line, which includes soap- and- sulfate-free cleansers, as well as body creams infused with white tea and vitamins C and E.
Amid live greenery and plentiful sunlight, Lucia C. Salon's talented stylists prune quick-growing hair into sculpted coifs with the latest cut and color techniques. The crew sinks dry or damaged strands into a helping of reparative conditioning treatments before cutting excess length or straightening curlicues. Their color treatments bless hair with new hues, as quick foil sessions help hair absorb shimmering highlights and patrons practice for school musicals in which they play baked potatoes. In the privacy of a secluded room, the crew wields warm wax to swiftly strip away fuzz from the face and body and infuse skin with a natural-looking glow with the help of airbrush-tanning solutions.
Perfection in one’s art can be extremely difficulty to achieve. But that doesn't stop the stylists at Shear Perfection by Kristen from trying.

As a full-service salon, Shear Perfection also readies brides for their big day with full wedding packages that include styling, a continental breakfast, and tips on how to avoid getting rice stuck to your face.
