Long mirrors wrap around the red-and-black walls like a racing stripe, reflecting polished wood floors and glowing flat-screen TVs. Amid these relaxing accents, the shop's skilled barbers offer sleek scissor cuts to flatter the features. Straight-razor lather shaves pair with a relaxing hot-towel treatment or botanical tea-tree oil mask to refresh the complexion. The shop also features a complementary women's salon for coloring and formal styling needs.
Within the fuchsia walls of Luniac Glamour, stylist Jamie Bomback enhances eyes with alluring eyelash extensions. Lashes, available in an array of lengths and colors, adhere to lash lines to add length and definition, and last for three to four weeks before falling off naturally. Bomback also enhances eyelids with clear adhesive crystals, which add sparkle to every blink and help clients send Morse code messages across the dance floor.
Susan Ferri has picked up many styling skills over the course of her 15-year career. She’s adept at applying color and highlights, texturizing hair, and cutting mops into fashionable dos that complement both face shape and skin tone. Certified in the Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatment, Susan also diminishes frizz with a long-lasting smoothing treatment that leaves strands as soft as a gosling after it’s been fluffed in the dryer. Susan works inside Hair-N-Now alongside a team of talented hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians.
The salon and day spa at Moderne may not be far apart physically, but each one feels like a completely different place. The bustling salon is home to a trio of stylists who boast specialties in hair design, extensions, dimensional and corrective color, and Brazilian blowouts, which leave hair straighter, sleeker, and perfect for princes’ climbing attempts. This bustling salon floor slips away as guests enter the doors to the day spa, where they’re greeted by relaxing music. There, massage therapists perform deep-tissue and hot-stone massages, and a nail technician paints fingernails and toenails. The aestheticians can also custom-blend facials, peels, and back facials for clients.
Nichole Soares, the owner of Salon De Nichole, views every head as a canvas and every hairdo as an artistic statement of beauty. She and her team style hair with that view in mind, trimming bangs, sides, and tops, carefully adding texture, and signing off with ribbons of color. Harnessing the power of Keratin Complex, they train locks to fall smoothly around the face without frizzing out or forming the highly offensive words "comb me." They offer services that fall outside the scope of hairstyling, too—waxing, for example, as well as facials, massage therapy, and beauty services for bridal parties.
Marilyn Oliveira is licensed as an aesthetician both here and abroad, and for the past 20 years, she has helped to rejuvenate skin and bodies with European-style beauty-boosting treatments. She customizes her signature facials to bring out the best in every skin type and regularly employs organic and anti-aging products. Her brushes dust makeup across the cheeks of brides and their wedding parties, and her wax de-fuzzes brows, lips, bodies, and permanently affixed sweaters to leave physiques beach-ready. She also performs manicures, pedicures, and other services inside her private, relaxed quarters within Martin’s Salon at Brick Market Place.
