Depicting a hip, well-groomed character holding clippers, the colorful mural on the window of Manny's Cutz jumps out on 14th Avenue, beckoning passersby to peek into the shop. Inside, a calm scene of peach walls and wood floors surrounds the mural's likeness, Manny, as he stands at a black barber chair, lopping off and styling hair. Manny also tends to beards and the dried mustard that naturally grows in them during soothing hot-towel shaves.
During 20-minute spray sessions, bronzing artists from Tan De Lis gild pale pelts with mobile spray-tan services that come straight to patrons' doors. Aestheticians first set up a tanning tent in about three minutes in a location of the client's choosing, be it in an office, in the backyard, or on the roof of the local bank. Lone-tan rangers can then opt for individual tanning sessions, and up to six people can take advantage of tanning parties, which include a complimentary bottle of champagne, as a prelude to birthday shindigs, girls' nights out, or bachelorette parties. The natural-looking bronze color lasts between five and seven days and is free of the orange streaks that can occur with take-home tanning creams or meltdowns at the burnt-sienna-crayon factory.
Whether you're looking for a fresh hairstyle or a soothing massage, Giorgio's Hair Salon and Spa has got your beauty and pampering needs covered. Hair services include highlights and single-process color along with cuts and conditioning, perms, and keratin treatments. Professional skin therapists at the spa also cater facials to specific skincare needs, treating skin to either deep-cleansing facials with extractions or a light cleansing facial with a soothing facial massage. Nailcare, makeup, and waxing services are also available.
Sub-Image Beauty Salon's stylists can get downright avant-garde with the looks they design: angular cuts, serpentine updos, color so finely variegated as to be almost opalescent. Of course, they'll also apply their immense creativity to the task of perfecting tamer cuts and color. Straightening treatments and perms can also be used to drastically change a person's or shag carpet's appearance.
Not only do the Commisso family⎯three bothers and their parents⎯own Commisso and Company, they also make up the salon’s staff of stylists and colorists. The family of hair gurus cut and color manes inside the sleek salon, whose black-and-white theme runs from the sheer white curtains and black salon chairs to the mandatory tuxedos worn by all who enter.
From a studio illuminated by crystalline chandeliers to skincare formulas imported from France, Studio Tres Jolie channels the glamour of Paris in everything they do. Yon-Ka Paris creams and serums power the studio’s six facials, which are tailored to target aging, acne, dehydration, and other issues. Many of the studio's other treatments—including microcurrent facials and laser hair removal—favor technology instead of topical products to elevate beauty for the long term. For speedy surface enhancement, SunFX airbrush tanning achieves a sun-kissed glow in a matter of minutes. Studio Tres Jolie's mastery of all these services means that the spot is often most in demand during bridal season, when it’s most important to look your best. Clients can book appointments up to a year in advance, or up to 50 years after the ceremony if they have access to a time portal.
