Salon by the Sea is only a short wig fling from the Atlantic, and it shows in the warm, inviting ambiance. Natural light pours in through large front windows onto the beach-safari decor. Guests are pampered by experienced stylists, who modernize looks with flattering layers, highlights, keratin treatments, and make-up applications.
Certified massage therapist Lori Amendolara of Essential Touch Body Works tames both physical and mental stress with hands-on healing. After filling out intake forms and chatting briefly about the goals of the session and of the Congress of Vienna, tense torsos undress to their comfort level and lie down. Over the course of 60 minutes, Lori employs a custom massage regimen that includes unscented, hypoallergenic oils to relax muscles, increase circulation, and release wrongfully imprisoned endorphins and serotonins. Tranquil sounds such as ocean waves fill the peaceful therapy room, and when the treatment is complete, clients refuel and awaken with a bottle of water and a small snack.
With a focus on both beauty and relaxation, Salon Topaz & Nail Parlor surrounds clients in an elegant and leisurely ambiance from the moment they amble in. Warm mocha- and latte-hued walls surround a quartet of comfortable and modern couches and chairs, where clients relax before their appointment with a beauty specialist or massage therapist.
Stylists reimagine hairdos for men, women, and kids during cuts, coloring sessions, or re-texturizing treatments. Meanwhile, nail techs helm manicure and pedicure stations, pampering hands with paraffin wax and freeing feet from restrictive horseshoes during hot-stone pedicures. Facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion treatments rejuvenate visages in private and serene spa rooms, and natural-looking spray or UV tans give skin a healthy bronze. Salon Topaz also coaxes beauty from the inside out with indulgent Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages.
Colorbar The Salon combines the modern elegance of boxy angles and hard lines with sleek, industrial accents. Blue LED lights ignite the space and bound off concrete floors, which lay home to styling stations and a shampoo oasis complete with beds and relaxing music. A bar stretches across the length of the space, inviting clients to kick back while beauty profession reinvents their look. Despite the easy vibe, Colorbar’s stylists remain grounded as they cut, condition, and revamp hair. They work with clients’ features to sculpt the most face-flattering styles possible, coloring and highlighting to complement eye color and skin tone. They even offer a VIP membership program that grants frequent guests privileges such as unlimited haircuts and blowouts each month and salon parties that celebrate special occasions such as a girls’ night out, a wedding, or medaling at the Lumberjack World Championships.
Kelly Lamicella has spent the past two decades in the salon industry, cultivating a loyal client base and assembling a team of experienced stylists and spa experts. While primping coiffures, her team uses products such as Redken and Keratin Complex to tint and smooth tendrils. Kelly's nail techs slather talons with CND Shellac polish, and her aestheticians use GloMinerals and Glow Skin Care products to cleanse, embellish, and tag epidermises before releasing them back into the wild. The symphony of rejuvenation culminates with a crescendo of massage played by therapists familiar with Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone techniques.
When stylists at A Touch of Class meet new clients, they work one-on-one to customize looks that mirror both current trends and customers' needs.

In addition to hair transformations, the staff whisks away stubble with waxing services, tidies up nails with mani-pedis, and readies individuals for special events with professional makeup applications.
