There's a hidden ingredient in every treatment at Alicia's Salon and Day Spa: enthusiasm. Alicia's staff of licensed specialists credit the enjoyment that they take in their work for much of its successful results. Their makeovers also depend on thorough consultations with clients and on trusted products (most of which come from Redken). But a fondness for their art fuels the entire team, from apprentice-level members all the way up to master stylists.
Their services cover flattering trims, hair color, extensions, as well as texturing treatments such as keratin smoothing and CHI straightening. Aside from fashioning new 'dos, they pamper hands and feet with mani-pedis that include exfoliating scrubs and hot towels. Massages can be alone or with a partner in a private room, and facial services include peels and microdermabrasion. The salon also has a full calendar of specials, rewarding customers with deals six days a week.
Within Noreen's Hair Studio cream-colored walls lies the solution to soothing world-weary appendages and revitalizing hair, skin, and nails. To instill life into dull mitts and feet, staffers shape and polish nails and cuticles during spa and signature mani-pedis before bedecking each thumb with a replica of the thimble worn by Betsy Ross as she sewed America’s first pair of tweezers. Waxing rids bodies of unwanted fuzz, and the salon's other hair treatments help renew tired manes. They also cleanse and soothe skin with deep-cleansing facials. The salon stocks its cabinets with brand-name products such as OPI gel polish, as well as custom-made concoctions designed to tackle individual clients' needs.
Serenity Herbal Spa galvanizes appearances, fusing a tranquil environment with professional service to cultivate vivifying results. Beach-ready bods can also be smoothed to a glossy finish with a Brazilian wax, fashioning bikini lines and demonstrating the accuracy of Serenity's follicular assassins. A combination of techniques is employed as needy limbs receive celebrity-status attention during a 30-minute massage. The service augments circulation, eases muscle tension, and dilutes anxiety into the alcoholic equivalent of a wine cooler. Immerse restless frames into Serenity's hydrotherapy system and aromatherapy add-on, designed to exterminate bodily toxins and unwind spools of stress yarn as bathwater loaded with herbals and essential oils cascades across skin surfaces.

The licensed stylists at A Slice of Color Salon harness their diversity and unique styling backgrounds to cut, style, and color all types and textures of hair. That flexibility gives each client access to a variety of services, from cuts and washes to extensions, weaves, and relaxing unruly hair. For the team’s signature service, the Dominican style, stylists may use an approach such as the chemical-free doobie—straightening hair by wrapping it tightly in a silk headscarf—which allows the natural curve of the head to unravel unwanted curls. For a longer-lasting straight hairdo, the salon also offers keratin straightening treatments. Beyond its styling services, the team also waxes away unwanted hair and applies makeup for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, or the anniversary of your first makeup application.
