Prestige Salon & Spa keeps statures in good standing with a toolbox of skin-nourishing and health-inducing services. Release skin that has long since stopped paying its union dues with a clarifying microdermabrasion treatment ($99), which removes dead skin cells to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation. For an hour of blissful kneading, choose a Swedish massage ($70) to increase circulation, or the aromatherapy version with scented essential oils ($75) to rejuvenate skin without restoring so much youth that you turn back into a baby. Deep-tissue massage ($75) descends into soft tissue and joints to liberate pain while increasing flexibility and range of motion. Prestige Salon & Spa's bright confines feature yellow walls and white trim for a cheery atmosphere to match the cheer-inducing services.
The Hairs Inn Salon offers more than just hair design, but—with a full service hair studio, color bar, and stylists that perform countless treatments—it’s fitting that hair earned its place on the marquee. Owner and stylist Holly Johnson oversees a talented roster of beauticians as they provide elegant cuts and embellishments, such as coloring and keratin treatments. Additionally, this full-service salon—which services men, women, and children—offers makeup applications, waxing, and beauty services tailored to help clients prepare for special events.
At Defining Moments, owner J.R. Laliberte has expanded the salon services of the former Middlebury Hair Center by adding a full-service barbershop, a menu of spa services, and a team of Redken-certified stylists, nail technicians, and massage therapists that populate the shop seven days a week. Quaint white siding frames the black door that grants guests access to the salon, where hair must run a gauntlet of Redken products, scissors, razors, wax, and hot towels to be molded into chic bobs or perfectly sharpened handlebar moustaches. Defining Moments’ mani-pedis keep nails looking like they just crawled out of a fashion magazine, and aches and pains melt into nothingness during Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal massages.
The Beauty Bar’s continuously educated aesthetic duo of Adriana and Sierra, a makeup artist and stylist, tag teams unwieldy tresses and leaves skin looking sun-smooched with a roster of salon services. Specializing in readying faces for weddings, Sweet 16 parties, and other celebrations, Adriana harnesses the light feel and even finish of airbrushed makeup, imbuing cheeks with a hue as rosy as an embarrassed baby. Alternatively, Sierra styles and colors hair to highlight each client's features and adds length to locks with Fusion hair extensions. Portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe preside over the chandelier-lit styling space, or staff members go mobile, toting their own kits, chair, and lighting to primp at a client's home or in their neighbor's tornado shelter.
Within Salon Couture of Southington, expert salon techs perform beautifying treatments amid red and white accents that recall the hues of peppermint candies and classic barber poles. The team snips hair, paints locks in shimmering highlights, and fastens updos while utilizing the complete line of Paul Mitchell products. They also create flawless faces with airbrush makeup and bronze limbs with airbrush-tanning solutions, enriched with vitamins and antioxidants. For clients seeking relief from tension or toxins, the staffers offer custom massage and facial services, and they can banish unwanted chin hair or Sharpie moustaches with facial-waxing services.
The stylists at Salon Eleganza pamper clients with a full array of salon services, including haircare and mani-pedis. Striving to make each guest feel beautiful and renewed, the stylists stay mindful of individual hair needs and spirit animals as they carefully style locks, build up hair strength with protein-rich deep-conditioning treatments, or help blend and condition new face-framing highlights with all-over glaze.
