At Color Bar Salon & Spa, the staff members aren’t merely stylists—they’re artists of sorts, who take a creative, design-minded approach to each client’s appearance. From fashion-forward hair services to nail care that calls on OPI polishes and fastidiously sterilized instruments, they tap into their years of experience to pamper and beautify each guest. In the spa, rejuvenating facials leave skin looking luminous and hot-stone and deep-tissue massages release tension lurking within muscles. The staff even performs laser hair-removal treatments that grant skin with permanent smoothness, forgoing the need to use razors, wax, or tiny Zambonis ever again.
The beauticians at Luxury Nail Spa & Salon are constantly honing their skills and techniques through training with industry vets such as Bumble & Bumble Academy, Chanel, and Redken. Aestheticians revitalize skin complexion with anti-aging facials and rake their brushes through OPI nail polishes to make nails as bright and colorful as minced rainbow. Clients sip complimentary beverages while watching locks tumble from their shoulders and feeling aches dissolve from muscles during hair and massage treatments.
Under the direction of owner and stylist Erica Duke, the staff at Alfonso Hair Salon transforms limp strands into face-flattering hairdos. With experience and training gleaned from Paul Mitchell, Keune, and Wella classes, stylists revamp tresses with highlights and full color. Other services include deep-conditioning treatments and color glossing that helps breathe new life into follicles that have lost their tone due to excessive exposure to the sun or glow-in-the-dark scrunchies. The salon’s services extend beyond hair to include shellac manicures and waxing treatments.
Skin Deep wields an arsenal of high-tech exterior enhancers to solve an array of aesthetic conundrums. Laser hair reduction quickly eliminates unwanted down from fur-festooned body parts with the help of a Lumenis LightSheer Duet machine. The procedure starts with a thorough cleaning of the relevant area to remove dirt and stubborn body barnacles, after which the laser takes aim at the offending follicles, vaporizing the carbon particles in hair-growing glands while leaving surrounding cells untouched. Because the laser acts selectively, targeting only active hair follicles, there is very little skin irritation and no need for recovery time, unlike hair removal conducted via lawn mower. The treatment is effective for darker skin types that may be ineligible for other types of laser therapy. Optimal efficacy is usually reached after five to seven treatments, though this may vary depending on the density of the hair, skin tone, and each follicle’s emotional readiness to accept early retirement. Customers should shave the target area prior to their appointment.
