While the spare, modern decor is the first thing visitors to Seema's Salon will notice, the atmosphere is secondary to the salon's detailed approach to haircare. Paintings of flowers look down on stylists as they transform clients' hair with custom cuts, or remove unwanted fuzz with threading and waxing. Touches such as sleek vinyl benches and glass shelves stocked with ornate jewelry and shoes help keep visitors occupied while they wait for service. The salon also offers makeup applications, and owner Seema Gulamani's hair and makeup work was highlighted in a wedding photo shoot in About Town magazine.
At Moons Spa and Boutique, a colorful array of flowy South Asian dresses and glittery jewelry adorns racks and cases as spa technicians beautify faces and forms with facials and aesthetic treatments. Specialists deftly remove unwanted hair and sculpt eyebrows with threading, nourish skin with facials, or decorate hands for weddings and parties with traditional henna tattoos.
Helmed by a dynamic duo, Classic Aesthetics combines expertise in skincare and massage therapy to deliver head-to-toe beauty and relaxation treatments. The center rejuvenates wrinkle- or acne-marked visages with more than 20 facial treatments, including microdermabrasion, PCA chemical peels, and face-lifting microcurrent treatments. A resident massage therapist assuages aches and pains with customized bodywork and chases away stress by kneading muscles with fluid hand movements.
Facelogic logisticians use scare tactics such as science and numbers to counteract the stress and lack of complexion clarity that can impede your ability to steer vehicles with your face. The friendly aestheticians at Facelogic Spa will gaze upon your visage to analyze your skin type and customize your facial treatment to meet your skin’s individual needs. The Glo Modified Jessner Facial awakens slumbering skin through a 60-minute chemical peel reducing the appearance of fine lines, superficial scar tissue, and sun damage, while tightening and lifting faces to decelerate your skin’s aging engines. In addition to the facial routine, a professional makeup artist will provide a GloMinerals makeup lesson/application, putting a blush on even the most Gollumy skin. Once your visage is restored to its original softness and youthful glow, an artful eyebrow and lip waxing will manicure furry mouthgates and create elegant arches to frame your revitalized look.
