At Look Image Salon & Spa, beauty experts snip hair, color it with highlights, and lengthen it through extensions. The team can also pamper hands and feet with mani-pedis, or wax away unwanted hair from head to toe. Their expertise also extends to makeup application, teeth whitening, and eyelash extensions. These beauty transformations happen six days a week. On Sunday, Look Image Salon & Spa typically hosts private makeovers for wedding parties.
As owner and operator of LockStar Salon, April Conley spends her days researching the latest trends, motivating her staff, and styling and chatting with her clients––and by her account, it’s the greatest job in the world. Amid candelabras and black paisley wallpaper, April and her styling team can transform strands with an elegant scissor cut, hair-smoothing relaxers, or bold color treatments with one of the salon’s Toni & Guy– or Paul Mitchell–trained stylists. Guests may also dip their feet into the salon’s indulgent spa menu, which offers mani-pedis, restorative facials, and soothing aromatherapy bodywork.
Certified laser technician Elizabeth Silva relies on lasers and electrology to rid clients of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal targets follicles with photons that turn into heat energy once they hit the root of the hair. Electrolysis is a more detailed approach: Elizabeth inserts a hair-thin probe into the pore that applies heat directly to the papilla—the part that nourishes the hair—or simply flips the follicle’s off switch when possible. In every case, she begins the course of treatment with a detailed assessment and consultation so that clients know what to expect. Her clinic welcomes women, men, teens, and speakers of both English and Portuguese.
Lynne Reilly—a certified laser technician, licensed aesthetician, and registered electrologist with 16 years of experience—along with her skilled and knowledgable staff know that the best makeovers start with the face. That’s why their menu builds on hair removal and salon services with 17 facial treatments that soothe skin and clear out pores with Dermologica products and techniques such as microdermabrasion, masques, and cupping. Registered and licensed aestheticians lead their clients to treatment rooms amid the salon’s chic and colorful décor filled with hardwood floors and modern fixtures.
Glow Hair Skin and Harmony’s interior evokes an elegant turn-of-the-century hotel with its candles, sumptuous drapes, gilded decorations, and a real bed for massages. The spa encompasses all three stories of a colonial home, where beauty buffs flock for haircuts, specialty facials, massages, and nailcare. Aestheticians certified in Keratin smoothing treatments can coat strands in Matrix products, while skincare services such as waxing might use Glow’s house line of products. Regardless of the service, the spa staff only uses products that exclude artificial colors, allergens, and repurposed hotel samples.
