Kids often take after their parents, and Armin Khavari is no exception. After growing up watching his parents run a beauty business, it seemed only natural for him to use his own experience and found Armin Salon-Spa. Alongside a group of skilled stylists, Armin clips and reshapes hair into trendy forms, colors locks with bold new hues, and conditions strands. On the spa side, massage therapists knead away stress, nail technicians retouch hands and feet, and aestheticians restore skin's youthful vitality and original shrink wrap.
LVS Salon Group's continually educated staff indulges clients' every feature with a kaleidoscopic slate of hair, nail, and skin services. While a stylist brightens a mane with highlights or blow-dries locks, a multitasking patron can lend paws to a technician for a professional manicure and pedicure crowned in durable gel lacquers or acrylic nails. For at-home beauty care or to sate the whines of unpampered mannequins, the salon stocks a brigade of products that includes Creative Nail Design, Matrix, Marilyn Brush, and Moroccanoil.
Roma & Co.'s stylists update looks amid modern white decor. The salon's colorists each boast 15 or more years of experience, routinely verse themselves in the latest trends, and regularly attend high tea with Roy G. Biv. Armed with the line of De Fabulous haircare products, the hairdressing team revitalizes locks and constructs chic 'dos. Elsewhere in the salon, technicians groom surfaces with manicures and MAC makeup applications.
When the dedicated staff members at Christie Pea say they want to make their clients feel like royalty, they aren't kidding. The salon's menu abounds with regal titles, from the Dutchess and Duke basic treatments to all-purpose pamperings fit for a queen or king. These namesake treatments describe several services, including nail enhancements, waxing, and facials designed to treat acne, sun damage, and rosacea. Replete with photos and videos courtesy of Jessika Alexandra, Christie Pea's spa parties provide a smattering of services for ladies to celebrate their sweet 16, approaching wedding, or decision to wear a polka-dotted prom dress.
Aestheticians at Envidia Nails Spa cheer downtrodden toes and overworked fingers with coats of brightly colored polish and pampering techniques that help reduce stress. The signature mani-pedi begins with an invigorating heel scrub and a hand-and-foot massage, relaxing tense palms, stressed-out soles, and weary retractable claws. Armed with an arsenal of tiny tools, technicians then deftly oil cuticles and file ragged nails into burnished, smooth ovals. Coats of jewel-toned OPI or Essie lacquer then transform digits into mobile fashion accessories capable of dialing the editor of Vogue simply by pointing imperiously at a phone. Spa mani-pedis lavish extremities with the same care as the signature treatment, but further soften and smooth skin by submerging hands in warm paraffin wax and slathering feet in an algae mask.
It was time for a change for Graciela Castro. After years spent working in finance, she realized that her fast-paced career had hobbled her health, relationships, and ability to sit still for a whole rendition of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall." So Castro learned to style hair, something she knew she would love once she observed how much a chic cut could lift a person’s spirits. It wasn't long before she opened Graciela's Salon. There, staff members apply the skills they learned at international style conferences to perform services with Paul Mitchell hair treatments or Gelish or Essie nail-polish hues. To enhance the mind-body experience she values, Castro makes clients feel at home by providing such complimentary beverages as wine and coffee, as well as free wireless-Internet access.
