Tall, mahogany workstations line Mia Passione, holding the tools of trend-setting stylists at work on unruly locks. Armed with products from Brazilian Blowout and Enjoy, the team imbues hair with smoothness, color, volume, or the permanent ability to look wind-blown.
Inside Belle Allure Salon & Spa, the stylists stay busy beautifying guests with hair, nail, and makeup services. The homey space features zebra-covered chairs and warm burgundy colors for a relaxing oasis before indulging in beauty treatments. Facials, massages, waxing, makeup, and full-body treatments are also available.
Stylists. Makeup artists. Aestheticians. Massage therapists. Nail technicians. The lengthy staff roster at Mancini Giuffre represents the salon and spa's lengthy list of services, all performed by experts in their respective fields. Skilled hands cut and color hair, deep clean pores with facials, and soothe achy muscles with just the right massage strokes. They also take their treatments outside of the confines of Mancini Giuffre, beautifying wedding parties before they walk down the aisle.
Pelletier's full-service salon and spa creates a friendly environment adorned with artwork and photography from local artists, and it stays environmentally friendly by fueling up with green power. Soothe muscles aggravated by an environment of stressors with a relaxation massage, make your nose forget its job at the rendering plant with an aromatherapy massage, or delve deep into your own pain-points with a deep-tissue massage. Those whose locks have been abused by earth's powerful wind turbines can deflate frizz with a follicle-smoothing keratin treatment. The modern, relaxing setting for services at Pelletier Salon and Spa ensures that each client leaves happy, and Pelletier's use of earth-friendly products keeps leaves happy, too.
LaVida Massage of Staten Island plays the role of matchmaker by assessing clients' needs and pairing them with the massage that will meet their goals. A person dealing with a sports injury may find themselves best suited for the rigorous pressure of a deep-tissue massage, whereas a stressed-out office worker may mesh well with the essential oils of an aromatherapy massage.
Therapists also use a four-level system to help match the client with the amount of pressure they'd prefer during the treatment. For those who want to extend their stay at the studio, LaVida dabbles in other areas of beautification, cleansing pores during signature facials, waxing unwanted hair, and gluing pages from fashion magazines all over a person's body.

Flat-screens mounted above each chair tilt downward, giving clients a better view of the TV and Big Brother an easy way to inspect the salon's work.
