Tapping into the creative energy pervading the salon’s skincare specialists, stylists, and nail technicians, he crafts haircuts that enrich each client’s personal style and embellish their features. Eric cuts, styles, colors, and treats hair so that it’s soft to the touch and dazzling to the eye.
From the street, Spa Sassé is barely distinguishable from the other little black awnings and narrow storefronts. But step inside, and the narrow storefront opens up into a 5,000-square-foot refuge from the downtown bustle.
Guests are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early for their appointment, giving them ample time to slip into fluffy robes and slippers and sip complimentary juice or tea before being ushered into a private treatment room. Here, aestheticians strive to ensure a soothing experience by treating skin with the utmost delicacy. They nourish it with natural ingredients such as honey, cacao, and Dead Sea salts, and, during laser hair removal, they wield the SoftLight laser, whose beams are gentle enough to zap hair from faces without damaging pores.
Every appointment at Neo Pinot Spa is designed to give clients an escape from the worries of everyday life. After enjoying a complimentary drink of spring water, herbal tea, or gourmet coffee in the waiting area, world-weary folks can truly relax as the nail technicians and aestheticians go pamper mad. The spa’s signature mani-pedis leave nails trim and refined, incorporating everything from salt scrubs and sea clay masks to warm herbal towel treatments, creating an indulgent spa experience. Additionally, the staff performs classic facials, foot massages and reflexology sessions, and waxing treatments that use hard or soft waxes and withering glares to get rid of unwanted stubble.
The beauty mavens at GiGi Aveda Salon Spa continually uncover fresh trends and learning techniques to revitalize clients with Aveda's organic tonics. Classic spa facials begin with Aveda's Elemental Nature consultation, which helps skin therapists assess epidermal concerns before devising a customized course of treatment. Next, those immersed in the face-and-hand treatment submerge their rough palms and stiff finger puppets into a warm paraffin-wax bath. Technicians finish by trimming nails and cuticles and crowning newly supple mitts with bright OPI lacquer.
