The Vidal Sassoon–trained president of J.Kelley Salon Inc., Jill Kelley, leads the team of style savants and certified wax techs to beautify patrons by straightening unruly 'dos and expelling extraneous face and body strands. An experienced staff lavishes bodies with high-quality products such as All Nutrient's organic dyes, Nufree's waxless depilator, and American Crew developed specifically for the manes of men. Chic salon chairs and polka-dotted sofas hold clients in the clutches of bliss as they're pampered amidst the exposed brick walls and turquoise accents of the salon.
Licensed massage therapists Guy, Tatiana and Rijah combine their varied experiences in massage therapy, Thai yoga bodywork and ashiatsu oriental-bar therapy to alleviate their clients’ aches and pains. Thai yoga mingles yoga stretches with acupressure, and during ashiatsu, the therapist skillfully walks on pressure points, using their own body weight to stimulate circulation and healing. To meet their clients’ needs, they also perform traditional massage and offer services such as body exfoliation and body wraps.
Performed by relaxation gurus Michaela Cote and Joseph Richard, Daydream Bodyworks' suite of services ranges from glycolic peels to warm seaweed wraps. Inside dimmed, candle-lit rooms, deep-tissue massages focus on relieving chronic aches and tension, while customized facials target fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and delinquent teenage pores.
Ferricchia's cadre of hair cultivators brings talents from such distant lands as New York City's Soho and Boston's Newbury Street to grace manes with colorful extensions and soothing treatments. One of this season's popular cranial trends, feather-adorned hair became an overnight sensation after celebrities were discovered dressing as peacocks for incognito grocery trips. Groupon customers can add avian flair with three seasonally hued or brightly colored faux feathers seamlessly seated in their current hair configuration. Alternatively, customers can partner with a Ferricchia stylist to draft a custom botanical Phyto hair treatment, from the hydrating Huile D'Ales to the Phytopolleine massage. Sessions culminate in a blow-dry and style to ensure patrons leave Ferricchia ready to pose for paparazzi photos or crash tourists' cell-phone snapshots.

She trims tresses into high-fashion styles that range from pixie cuts to long, layered looks and infuses strands with bold, creative color or natural, sun-kissed highlights. An iron fence and potted flowers decorate the entrance to the salon, which is housed in a charming brick building.
Whether your look depends on a full head of highlights, vibrant feather extensions, or a classic men's haircut, the stylists at Adorn Salon relish every chance to fuse modern styling with an old-fashioned, personalized approach. Though they specialize in cuts and coloring treatments, the team is too restlessly creative to stand beside salon chairs all day. They also sculpt nails during standard or shellac mani-pedis and wax faces until they are as smooth as the surface of a prepubescent peach.
