Hairstylists do their part with customized haircuts and coloring, and nail technicians pad their pedicures with massages and scrubs, all rounded out with organic airbrush spray tans.
For Jade DiPersio, looking good extends beyond personal appearance. According to a spotlight story in the Daily Item, her first order of business as a new salon owner was to renovate the fusty interior of her new space. Gone were the shaggy carpets and outdated countertops, replaced by sleek hardwood floors and six styling stations designed to Jade’s exacting standards. Here, expert technicians wax wayward fuzz, snip split ends, and coax out underlying color with highlights. Two pedicure stations eschew bacteria-friendly jets for sanitary surfaces set in front of a plush bench embellished with zebra stripes. Jade has calibrated the environment to put all clients at ease, with violet accents and jungle-print smocks adding a splash of whimsy to makeovers or midmakeover will readings.
