The Makeup Bar Salon may be named for its chair-lined countertops that brim with signature cosmetics, but its staff of stylists and aestheticians brings much more than just makeup artistry to the table. Supervised by Lisa Severino, a makeup artist with more than 20 years of experience, the salon’s many claims to fame include a seaweed facial that was a 2011 Pick by InStyle magazine and a blow-dry bar with a choice of three styling options: tousled, straight, or Louis XIV. Meanwhile, eyebrow specialists flaunt years of over-eye artistry in brow-shaping sessions that both correct past tweezing blunders and ensure flattering contours when brows grow out. Clients can put a bow on their spa and salon services with exclusive cosmetics, whether the salon’s own or the feng-shui-inspired Color Elements line designed by Severino herself.
At Rejuvenate Medical Spa, Karen A. Roperti, MD and Paul DiMaio, PA-C harness their combined years of experience in the health field to invigorate clients' skin with the latest anti-aging procedures and spa services. Wielding high-tech lasers, the clinical staff zaps unwanted hairs, veins, sun spots, or miniature planets orbiting the head, and handpicked products from Latisse and SkinCeuticals further smoothen skinscapes. Consultations before any appointment are free of charge, instilling peace of mind in guests readying for their first facial procedure or permanent-makeup session.
Dr. Deborah Villeneuve helms Bella Donna Medispa’s anti-aging and hair-removal services with more than just clinical expertise. Since she’s had first-hand experience with many of the treatments she offers, Dr. Villeneuve can give clients an insider’s perspective on their efficacy and benefits within the spa's warm and inviting environment. SkinCeuticals products help ensure that each procedure, including chemical peels and photorejuvenation treatments, targets specific skin types.
Dozens of makeup compacts add color to the airy interior of Panache Skin Care & Makeup Studio, where beauticians enhance clients' natural features with their own signature line of cosmetics. Of course, makeup is most striking when it's applied to clean, healthy skin, which is why the studio also stocks a full line of professional Dermalogica products.
Panache, however, is much more than a cosmetics studio. The menu of beauty services includes everything from eyebrow threading to exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments. There's also an educational element to the studio?regular makeup lessons teach students how to add just the right amount of blush and how to effectively camouflage oneself in a jungle setting. The studio is also replete with certain perks, such as on-site parking and memberships on a monthly- or yearly-basis.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Saunders has more than 25,000 surgeries under his belt. His portfolio includes face-lifts, tummy tucks, breast augmentations, and liposuction. He also offers less invasive procedures that smooth fine lines, such as Botox or Dysport injections.
The stylists at HairSense are versatile—not only do they pride themselves in revamping hairstyles, they also sculpt ornate up-dos and other lavish looks in preparation for proms, weddings, and special occasions. To this end, they administer a full range of hair services, including designer cuts, perms, color, and conditioning.
While a stylist takes care of your hair, feel free to relax and enjoy a cup of complimentary coffee, tea, or a glass of wine. There's free WiFi, too, so it's possible to search for the latest hairstyles and then email the president for his opinion.
