Body Design of Pittsburgh and its expertly trained staff trim fat and inches off bodies with a virtually pain-free, FDA-approved Zerona body-slimming laser treatment. Touted as a safer alternative to surgery, the method allows patients to remain fully active during each 40-minute treatment and has little to no side effects. Patients will relax while lasers emit beams into their sides, diminishing waists, hips, thighs, and drumsticks by a combined three to nine inches (results vary depending on the individual). A preliminary medical consultation will determine if customers with thyroid disease or diabetes are eligible for treatment; the procedure is not recommended for those with other metabolic disorders, those who have had cancer within the past year, or taffy gums.
While some spas claim to be relaxing, Spa Jema goes above and beyond, aiming to become a tranquil urban oasis for its clients. Sleek hardwood floors fill the 5,000-square-foot space, through the lounge and treatment rooms equipped with brick fireplaces, candles, and couches, which give off a homey vibe not unlike that of grandma’s Ouija board. Their services augment the calming atmosphere and include fruit-filled facials, deep-tissue massages, and pampering spa packages.
Owners and principal members of the stylist team Emilio and Gino corral their decades of experience to create two distinct spaces where clients revel in personalized services. They staff more than 60 aesthetes, each of whom receives focused training on adjusting hair, skin, nail, and massage services to clients’ stated preferences and lifestyle. During and after haircuts, the team uses a house brand of products to style strands and address specific hair problems such as color fading, excessive oil, or naturally occurring pipe cleaners. During facials, the aestheticians home in on what lies below bangs by cleansing, toning, exfoliating, and moisturizing skin, and tension dissipates during therapists' restful massage sessions. The downtown Pittsburgh location also plays host to an elegant serata—a private, chandelier-lit escape where bridal parties can enjoy ultimate relaxation before addressing the fact that their friend is marrying a panda bear.
Premier Salon and Spa's stylists have studied hair and beauty in New York City, London, and Paris, but clients don't just come for the team's worldly talents—they also come for the view. Perched 11 stories high inside Macy's Department Store, the space features private styling rooms that offer exclusive peeks at the cityscape and the bald spots of passing pedestrians.
Wielding products from Aveda, Pureology, and Goldwell, the stylists fashion bold cuts and brilliant highlights—services that earned the salon multiple awards from Citysearch. Meanwhile, soothing ambient music fills private suites during massages, waxing services, and customized Dermalogica facials.

In the early 1960s, a young man dropped out of high school and got a job cutting hair at Saks Fifth Avenue. According to TribLive, he made $4.95 for his first haircut, and as this new job transformed into a burgeoning passion, he decided to sell his car to pay for tuition at Pittsburgh Beauty Academy. Philip Pelusi, this blue-collar boy with a modest past, eventually came to own 13 of his own salons, create signature hair and skincare product lines, and garner a slew of accolades, including being named one of the top 10 stylists in the country by InStyle magazine.
At Philip Pelusi Salons, each of the stylists specialize in Pelusi’s patented Volumetric haircutting method. Following architectural principles, the method takes face shape and hair texture into consideration as scissor snips carefully build from the bottom up to create a style that follows the hair’s natural growth pattern and preexisting electrical wiring. To complement this structural approach, the staff calls on Pelusi’s own line of eco-friendly, plant-derived salon formulas that are bolstered with sunscreens, proteins, and moisturizers to keep strands healthy. The salon magnate’s skincare and cosmetics formulas follow the same nourishing recipes and take a starring role in the salons’ menu of facials and makeup services.
