At Rochester Esthetics, skilled epidermal artistes buff blemishes from human canvases with a beautifying array of skin care and waxing services. Following a consultation to determine appropriate facial accentuation, hair removal specialists shape eyebrows into graceful arches or perplexed question marks with a follicle-vacating barrage of trimming, waxing, and tweezing. For clogged cranial landscapes, the Spa Classic and Gentleman's Facials incorporate a potent blend of cleansing, steam exfoliation, and light extractions to clear dirt and oils. A glycolic-acid treatment powers the Rapid-Exfoliation Rejuvenation with skin-scouring might, and the AromaSpa Facial's sweet-smelling blend of essential oils and botanical products invigorates the senses and leaves countenances as smooth and alluring as a seal on a motorcycle.
The much-lauded Studio One Salon offers a plethora of salon and spa services dedicated to de-stressing patrons as well as bettering appearances. Place a face in the care of Studio One Salon for a one-hour basic spa facial that begins with a thorough skin analysis, allowing the aesthetician in charge to tailor a specific treatment for each epidermis. Using Dermalogica products, each visage is cleansed, exfoliated, extracted, masked, hydrated, and, finally, fortified against the everyday onslaught of solar rays and glove-slapping duel challenges. An eyebrow arch eliminates overgrown or out-of-place bristles, tidying up forehead mustaches into two separate, symmetrical features while increasing one’s ability to communicate emotions such as surprise, anger, or “I’ve just been pied by a clown!”
Blow Dry Divas owner Kimberly Williams built her salon to be a fun place to hang out. In addition to a full menu of hair services—which range from cuts to blowouts—the salon throws parties where teens can primp for prom or girlfriends can get together for drinks before a night out. Williams even hosts photo shoots at her onsite boudoir studio, where you can get "pinup" shots and re-create your favorite Sears-catalogue covers.
From the wrap-around porch to the mahogany crown molding inside the Victorian building, Aura Salon has a homey feeling. Especially for owner Chris Nadjarian, who actually grew up in the very home that now houses his salon, according to a Patch.com article. These days, he shepherds a staff armed with gleaming scissors and hair dye as they mold manes into trendy styles.
In 1989, Glitz Salons' founder decided to open a salon with a philosophy rooted in working with others to make clients feel good. Twenty years later, the staff at Glitz Salons still mans their stations and lives out that goal. When not performing services such as haircuts and waxing, the crew at Glitz Salons gives back to its community by helping local high schools put on prom fashion shows and hosting fundraising events. A cohesive, supportive unit, the salons' stylists and aestheticians receive continuous encouragement to express their own creativity and implement innovative ideas into their workday. This freedom allows customers to reap the benefits of a staff that thinks outside the box, paints the box, then folds it into a mesmerizing mobile sculpture.
La Dolce Vita Spa fills its ranks with beauty specialists that combine their specialized expertise to devise a full-body menu of beautifying treatments. Hands and feet find renewal with a variety of therapies, from cooling dollops of spearmint scrub to the ache-melting warmth of hot stones. Ten facials cater to different complexions, with regimes that encourage elasticity with seaweed extract or calm active blemishes with sulfur masks. Meanwhile, stylists untangle tresses with shampoos and cuts, and spa therapists loosen muscles' fancy half-windsors with half- or full-hour massages.
Daniel’s Salon & Studio boasts more than 20 staff members specializing in an array of pampering beauty services. The majority are stylists handling hair services, from simple but stylish cuts to more involved chemical services, such as Yuko Japanese thermal straightening treatments. A handful of highly trained nail technicians devote their time to administering spa pedicures, acrylic nails, and Shellac manicures designed to resist chips for up to two weeks. A massage therapist kneads away stress, and a beautifier certified in Botox rewinds faces with wrinkle-eradicating injections.
