The stylists at Parks Salon have honed their chops under the training of Anthony Parks, who’s been in the beauty industry for 30 years.

Featured on Bravo's Tabatha's Salon Takesover, stylist and color specialist Nik Nejad has sharpened his scissor skills for a quarter century, lending him the expertise to lead his staff of aestheticians and stylists in offering a full menu of salon and beauty services. As hair experts cut, color, and twist tresses into elegant coiffures, clients can admire their new 'dos via the large, framed mirrors hung above antique-style dressers. All nail services—such as mani-pedis and silk wraps—include a dip in skin-softening paraffin wax, and facials and makeup applications leave complexions glowing for any lavish occasion, from weddings to Senate-committee hearings. Massage therapists knead sore muscles, leaving them relaxed and limber so guests can cartwheel past the fountain bubbling in the spa's outdoor courtyard.
When stylists Nona and Niloo decided to join forces, they also joined names. They added a V and founded Novilo, a salon and spa staffed by a skilled team of stylists, manicurists, and aestheticians. That team includes the likes of Deanne and her 16 years of experience. Surrounded by gilded mirrors and classical romantic paintings, they expertly shape coiffures, perform detailed facials, and brighten nails with polishes or firefly implants. An arsenal of high-quality products help the team perform microdermabrasions and oxygen treatments, as well as meet clients' more specialized needs.
C Salon's staffers render a diverse set of hair, nail, and skincare services. So it's important to them that they stay on top of their game. By taking continuing-education classes, they improve their hair-related skills, such as cutting and styling strands, coloring them with highlights or single-process treatments, or applying custom color extensions. The skilled stylist are consistently on top of their game for special occasions, such as weddings, proms, and quinceañeras. C Salon carves out a piece of its menu specifically for those services—bridesmaid upstyles and bride trial runs, to name a couple. A couple of C Salon's stylists even have experience working for film and television, since it's crucial that the cords running from the camera to the monitor look keratin-treatment-level shiny.
From their sculptures to their architecture, it’s clear that Italians have long understood beauty. The professional beautifiers at Casa Bella Salon fittingly draw inspiration from the country’s aesthetics. They appoint their salon and spa as a villa, coating its worn stone walls in the famed bougainvillea vines that ensconce many a Tuscan manor. They further channel this ancient beauty into modern styles as they sculpt hair, apply makeup, and rejuvenate skin. They also provide manicures and pedicures, topping nails with a single hue or the stripes of the Italian flag.
As a practitioner of the Aveda arts, Kriza Aveda Salon Spa stocks its shelves, cosmetic counters, and salon stations with natural, botanical serums and salves. To pamper clients, the staff peppers each service with luxurious flair—stylists treat guests to a head, neck, shoulder, and hand massage with every haircut, before touching up makeup for ladies. Between appointments, they’ll even trim up bangs to keep cuts stylish or keep head hair from weaving itself into eyelashes. In addition to applying makeup for brides or for special occasions, makeup artists also consult with clients to teach them how to enhance their features and pick the shades that suit their particular skin tone during lessons. Plant-based facials leave skin radiant, diminish wrinkles, or address acne. In every location, the decor mirrors the commitment to naturalism with a light, airy feel, characterized by mostly white walls and plenty of mirrors and glass.
