Sunlight floods the main salon area at Maria Francesco Salon & Spa, illuminating classic black styling chairs and oversized framed mirrors. Here, hairstylists style the locks of men, women, and children, cutting off overgrown strands and enhancing shine and color with foil highlights or tinted flashlights. Across the way, nail technicians are busy at work. Other than buffing, shaping, and polishing finger- and toenails, they soften skin with warm paraffin wax. Aestheticians administer eight kinds of facials inside the space’s private spa rooms, including classic European facials and condition-specific services for acne, rosacea, or teenage skin. Once skin is free of dirt and oil, the team can wax hair from both the face and body.
The bold and blocky treatment chairs fit right into a open and modernistic design scheme of G2 Salon, where Gentiana and Christopher Watts lead a trained team of stylists in performing haircare, facials, and bodycare treatments. The team performed hair and makeup services for many of the competitors in the 2011 Mrs. Massachusetts pageant, and they utilize Jealous haircare products with botanical extracts along with restorative L'anza products to keep each of their client's locks healthy. They offer specialty facials with pure essential oils, deep-exfoliating natural enzymes, and potent antioxidants to brighten skin while also improving tone and texture.
Within the private comfort of a treatment room at Go Platinum Salon and Medspa Peabody, customers' unwanted hair is whisked away from nearly any area of the anatomy. Waxing services leave skin as smooth as silk and as touchable as a really nice cotton-poly blend. Organic hard wax and post-wax soothing cream with allantoin and chamomile are used to prevent irritation.
The stylists and aestheticians at Velvet Trim Hair Spa only rely on top-shelf beauty products. For hair, they trust L’Anza color. For faces, their masks and serums contain ingredients such as 24-karat gold and caviar. And for lips, Juvéderm plumps up pouts.
For the stylists at Salon Bella, staying ahead of fashion and technology is of utmost importance. That is why they undergo continual training in emerging hair, nail, and skin techniques and use only high-quality products to beautify clients. They lavish tresses with Aveda haircare products and polish faces with PCA peels.
With a team of seasoned stylists trained in a variety of different treatment techniques, Details Hair Design helps each client accentuate his or her individual allure. Utilizing quality products and knowledge of the latest trends, friendly tress trimmers manage dudely ’dos with a men's cut ($28+), as well as lovely lady locks with a blow-dry and style ($25+) or a design cut and blow dry ($40+), trimming lengthy head vines before they start ensnaring the feet of passing strangers.
