At Legendary's Weaving Salon, candy-pink walls and hardwood floors surround hair-weaving masters and their clients, creating a lavish backdrop for stunning above-shoulder makeovers. Stylists decorate scalps with weaves made from virgin human hair in a variety of styles from all over the world, masterfully applied through full sew-ins or glueless blend-in treatments. They nourish strands with keratin smoothing treatments and quinoa-protein damage remedies, or add bold dashes of color with Elumen color conditioning or color-glossing lock-ins. As they await their organic facials or luxurious salon treatments, guests relax on a cozy couch with a complimentary glass of wine, using the studio's free WiFi to catch up on work emails or unseat the previous Foursquare mayor in a devastating smear campaign.
The gals at Salon Tenshi promote hair health with restorative steam treatments that repair, hydrate, volumize, or color protect hair. From inside their chic salon they also offer haircuts, color and highlights, as well as keratin treatments that combat frizz.
Inside the Rittenhouse Women's Wellness Center, DermaCenter Medical Spa is an oasis for women who want to improve the appearance and health of their skin without going under the knife. Dr. Leslie Saltzman and her team of female physicians and aestheticians specialize in the science side of the spa experience. They work toward achieving the best results, whether it be smooth, wrinkle-free skin after an injection of Dysport or flawlessly complected legs after spider-vein removal. And because their treatments aren't invasive, most require little to no downtime and allow clients to get back to their normal lives.
With a swift flick of the wrist, the skilled aestheticians at The Naked Peach nix unwanted hair from the body and face with their specialty waxing services. But this isn’t just any wax—it's french hard wax, made from microcrystalline minerals and completely beeswax-free. Only adhering to the hair and never the skin, the hypoallergenic wax offers long-lasting results without sacrificing skin health. Guests may also solicit an aesthetician for a relaxing facial, organic airbrush tanning, or an eyelash perm or tint.
Dina Alon's beauty industry experience spans 27 years and encompasses both hair and makeup artistry. After studying at The Vidal Sassoon Academy, she has managed to put together an impressive resume: she's done make-up for numerous celebrities, including Nicolette Sheridan of Desperate Housewives, Joan Rivers, and Patty Duke. She's also powdered noses for programs such as FOX's NFL Under the Helmet, PBS's Christina Cooks, and Lifetime's Denise Austin, and she's worked as a hair and make-up artist for the QVC shopping network for 13 years. Dina now leads a team of stylists at her own salon. Guided by her experience, these trained artists nourish and sculpt tresses with products by Kerastase and Oribe.
For 15 years, certified colorist Drimaine Mills has approached each client's head as she would a canvas brimming with artistic potential. Emerald Cutz Hair Salon acts as her studio, where she and her stylists craft flattering 'dos with cuts, color services, and spa add-ons such as spray tans and mani-pedis.
As a celebrity hair and style coach, Drimaine is also familiar with the concept of special treatment—she customizes her conditioning methods to suit each guest's hair type, from brittle to curly to fine. By using salon-exclusive products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Goldwell, the staff continue to make patrons feel famous without painting George Clooney's facial hair on every station's mirror.
