Though her pampering skills once enriched the lives of students at Redken School in New York, these days, master cosmetologist Pat Alessi uses her more than 30 years of experience to upgrade looks at Salon 1580. Along with specialty services in creative coloring, Global Keratin treatments, and rejuvenating organic facials, Pat counts communication as one of her greatest styling assets, taking the time to carefully listen to each of her client's wants and concerns before expertly shaping locks with Redken, L'Oréal, and Rusk products. To keep abreast of the latest trends in European styling and croissant making, she also frequently attends seminars led by industry leaders, melding modern techniques with her own creative flair to create looks that are completely fresh.
Art Hair Salon & Spa inspires beauty from head to toe—stylists and aestheticians alike combine technique with artistic sensibility to design flattering looks that withstand daily life. Clients can peer into mirrored walls to witness transformations occur as hairstylists revamp coifs with cut, color, and texturizing treatments. Nearby, skincare experts obscure blemishes and signs of aging with European facials and acne care, while massage therapist melt tension and inspire calm with hot-stone bodywork treatments. Nail techs maintain sterile work-stations—that means hospital-grade autoclaves, basin soaks with pipeless jet-spas, and all-metal instruments. But they're just as dedicated to the art of nail care with deluxe mani-pedi packages, 3D nail art, and kids mani-pedis for young ’uns who want to make a good first impression with the guidance counselor.
Sleek, modern design characterizes the decor at Pixie Salon. An entryway beckons with cool-mint walls, a crisp-white couch, and rounded chairs, and a quote on the wall gently inspires readers to dance in the rain. This stylish independent streak is at the heart of the salon’s mission to be a creative, open environment. Pixie Salon’s stylists draw on that artistic spirit to meet the needs of their clients, crafting new haircuts, colors, and foil sculptures with ease.
For Tammy Stanley, the owner of Kera Vie, the learning process never stops. Even after more than 20 years as a professional stylist, she still regularly attends hair shows in an effort to keep her skills sharply fashion-forward. This commitment is also demonstrated by the mater stylists at the salon, who bring decades of experience to their chairs. They perform basic cut and color services, as well as advanced treatments such as color correction, seamless hair extensions, and Global Keratin's Juvexin smoothing system, which reduces frizz and increases shine for up to five months. In addition to hair services, the team is also adept at delivering makeup applications with Mirabella Beauty cosmetics.
Plum Tree Salon & Spa sits on a former plum tree orchard. In the same spot where workers once toiled picking and carrying produce through the fields, massage therapists and aestheticians now stand by ready to provide a relaxing getaway with Swedish massages and European facials. The spa also staffs eight licensed stylists, who are on call to help spur personal transformations. Using products by Moroccanoil and Pureology, they sculpt haircuts, embellished with color and texture that make hair look as healthy and refreshed as a vitamin that just returned from Hawaii.
