A haven that fuses the tranquility of a day spa with the results-oriented procedures of a medical office, SpaMedica executes age-defying cosmetic, facial, and body treatments. A staff of seasoned medical aestheticians bolsters exteriors through services that range from Dysport injections and microdermabrasion to cellulite-banishing Endermologie treatments, many harnessing the nourishing ingredients of SkinMedica and NeoStrata skincare products. Beige walls dotted with matching candles warmly welcome patrons to the pampering sanctuary, inviting them to drink in the aroma of fresh blooms in a cozy waiting area bordered by a plush blue couch. Natural light filters through drapes onto comfy treatment beds set inside secluded rooms as peaceful and discreet as a private island ruled by sentient olive trees.
Classified as Redken Elite Salons, both Metro Salons locations staff a stable of stylists who keep abreast of the latest techniques with ongoing training in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Appointments start with complimentary consultations, wherein patrons dish on their favorite looks and show stylists their 10 favorite hairs. Then, hair pros draw on Redken, Wella, and Coppola products for a variety of services, from painting on highlights to trimming split ends. A final style ensures clients walk out ready to pose for sidewalk photo shoots or star in traffic-cam footage for the five o'clock news.
With more than 25 years of experience grooming just-budding manes, Snip and Snap Kids owner Debbie and her staff turn mop-tops into smooth 'dos with a few precise clips. To create a successful distraction, the shop has transformed its styling seats into a parade of motorcycles, trains, and fire engines, and the waiting area boasts an array of child-friendly amusements, such as individual Playstations, Legos, foosball, and the occasional high-stakes poker tournament. Snip and Snap welcomes little ones for a first cut (a $13 value), girls (a $15 value), and boys (a $14 value) by appointment only.
At Push, tradition and modernity coalesce not only in the seasoned staff's ever-expanding educational background, but in the salon's very environs, where bright diamond plating meets warm, wooden tones, and classical paintings gaze out with calm approval. An Ouidad-certified facility, Push's team of haircare experts stands at the ready to provide all manner of hair services, from fashionable cuts to color treatments to straightening and smoothing. Whether fixing elaborate updos for bridal parties or merely trimming bangs for a herd of highland cattle, before laying steel to strands, stylists listen to patrons' wants and needs, providing customized services that fit each individual's style.
When it comes to relaxation, Lisa K. Girandola offers a variety of options for pampering her patrons. She and her staff promote inner calm and relaxed muscles by ushering clients through 14 types of massages and 15 ways of smashing an alarm clock. Cold, clinical technology is nowhere to be found during facial and skin services. Instead, fruit and lavender peels and masks replace lasers and harsh chemicals during the spa's sea facials, herbal facials, and optimum rejuvenation treatments. In addition to beautifying and relaxing physiques, Lisa nurtures spiritual sides by attempting to balance chakras and leading students through three levels of reiki-attunement classes.
