Inside Camilla's Inspiration by Simmone, a multicultural salon with teal walls and patterned floors, stylist Simmone Williams trims, colors, conditions, and styles hair of all types. She specializes in sew-in weaves, nonsurgical hair replacement, and African-style braiding, such as havana and nubian twists. The salon also houses a boutique stocked with women's party dresses, handbags, and jewelry.
The experienced team of multicultural stylists at Vielka Morgan Hair Studio helps to add pizzazz to messy mop-tops with a strand-straightening keratin treatment. Each treatment tames misbehaving hair with a formaldehyde-free concoction, uncoiling kinks and sculpting coiffures into bouffants, bobs, or busts of Martin Van Buren. After Medusa-esque manes are sluiced with an enlivening elixir, a flatiron fuses the substance into the hair with intense heat for a shiny, straight, and smooth finish that typically lasts for at least three months. An inviting atmosphere peppered with lush plants relaxes patrons as large, elegant mirrors emanate an aura of spaciousness and clients prep noodle nests for a romantic date or an attempt to quickly woo a highway tollbooth attendant.
Inside Le Rouge Hair Lounge, there's a portrait of a woman in Marie-Antoinette-style garb with a tall gray wig and a powdered face. This old-fashioned glamour extends to the rest of the salon's decor: A gold chandelier hangs overhead, and near the portrait, a French-style sofa and two vintage wingback chairs surround a curio cabinet. The cabinet is stocked with Redken products, and there's a boutique area featuring a collection of baubles and handbags. Step into one of the styling stations, and you can watch as a skilled stylist does up your hair in an ornately framed mirror. At the back of the salon, there's a vanity table filled with glo minerals makeup products, and you can roast plastic marshmallows over a faux fireplace.
1604 Day Spa and Salon’s staff of licensed massage therapists and aestheticians fight the effects of stress and aging with nourishing facials and relaxing messages. In a warm, private room, back pain succumbs to the healing hands of a skilled masseuse who either soothes away stress with Swedish massage or employs deep-tissue techniques to evict hunkered-down strains more quickly than a long and drawn-out civil suit. Alternatively, seasoned aestheticians tailor an Aveda Elemental Nature facial to fit the client’s skin type, pore-ailments, and full-body bear suit, freshening and smoothing faces with naturally derived Aveda products.
In English, Bella Corpo translates to “beautiful body,” and that’s exactly what the spa and salon’s staffers hope to help patients achieve. Their services range from traditional skincare—facials, anti-aging peels, and microdermabrasion—to infrared body wraps, which can flatten cellulite and tighten skin as patrons lie within a cozy, cocoon-like encapsulation.
