According to the staff at In Loving Hands Massage Therapy, love holds the answer to the questions of life. Their love is the practice of massage, and it shows as they share their passion in each session. Much like a lullaby whispered by Mort Crim, their relaxing massages work to relieve their clients’ stress, tension, and pain.
At Neha Threading Salon & Spa, Neha Gupta, a threading specialist and licensed cosmetologist who's worked in India and the United States for 18 years, leads a team of experienced aestheticians, technicians, and stylists. She invites customers to unwind and relax with a wide range of beautifying and soothing spa and salon services. Threading and waxing remove unwanted hair, sculpting brows along the way. Custom facial treatments cleanse pores and exfoliate complexions, rejuvenating them for another day in public or one final staring contest with the mirror. Full-body massages use modalities such as deep tissue or hot stones to alleviate aches or pains, whereas hair and nail services tend to heads, fingers, and toes.
The attentive staff at LeSalon de Beauté beautifies hair, skin, and nails, striving to anticipate clients' needs in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. Stylists transform strands with color and texturizing services, including spiral perms modeled after famous DNA double helixes. The team targets stress with Swedish, deep-tissue, or myofascial massages and mani-pedis that can include a hot stone hand or foot treatment. The community-minded salon has also supported local artists by displaying paintings and other works.
Children's toys, brightly colored mirrors, and coloring easels delight little ones at Salon 36 Kids, and patient stylists pamper them with kid-centric beauty services. During a first haircut, stylists carefully snip baby and toddler hair, saving a lock for the parents and also providing them with a photo and keepsake certificate afterward. Along with kid cuts, Salon 36's team is well versed in highlighting teens' manes, flatiron straightening, trimming parents’ locks, and dolling up digits with mani-pedis for all ages, which also are featured in the salon's birthday-party packages.
In addition to services tailored to kids, the staff also uses high-quality, kid-friendly beauty products. Fairy Tales products keep bugs at bay with a lice-repellent formulation. The salon also stocks their shelves with eye-catching hair accessories, from barrettes to headbands, as well as specialty toys, including floating bath toys and picture puzzles of Einstein's first mohawk.
Tete A Tete’s gray-blue walls and black-rimmed mirrors create a calming, elegant environment where stylists perform beautifying services on heads, faces, and hands. The staff trims hair, buffs cuticles, and sculpts eyebrows using high-quality products instead of the revitalizing tears of Hollywood celebrities. Judy Anslow, a skin specialist, cleanses faces with glycolic-acid treatments and helps customers relax with aromatherapy stone facials.
Dr. Dean Kane's pursuit of beauty has led him across the country and beyond. His specialized training in plastic surgery and medicine began at the University of Puerto Rico, then continued with residencies at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore and the University of Florida. Today, Dr. Kane shares his knowledge of plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques with up-and-coming doctors as a clinical professor at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and beautifies patients at his plastic-surgery practice.
From the moment clients enter the couch- and art-adorned waiting room to the time they grapple through the skylight, the attentive staff cater to them with personal attention. Before treatment⎯such as tummy tucks, liposuction, and Botox injections⎯clients consult with Dr. and Lauri Kane to ask questions about procedures as well as outline their beauty goals. Post-procedure, the clinical or operating-room nurse oversees patients through the entire recovery process.
