Everything changed for Mosaic Salon in 2013. The owners decided to move to a new location, which presented an opportunity to completely customize the space. And
did they ever. The interior was rebuilt from the drywall up, including custom styling stations and a custom reception desk. It now also doubles as an education space where master stylists can teach new
techniques and students can practice new color approaches using mannequin heads that always sit perfectly still.
The attention to detail put into the salon also extends to the service menu, making every haircut, color treatment, or facial just right for the client. The stylists and aestheticians have products for just about every style and are trained in product lines including K?rastase and Dermalogica. As a Bumble & bumble-preferred salon, the staff also gets new products soon after they come off the line, keeping them at the forefront of innovation.
The licensed therapists at Oliv'u Spa & Massage Wellness Center know that the best massages make you feel good from the inside out. It's no surprise, then, that everything they do is meant to promote balance and relaxation?right down to their use of all-natural and organic products. Though some of their most popular services include bamboo and hot-stone bodywork, these therapists will happy stray from the techniques dictated by each style in order to address specific areas of concern.
Oliv'u also has a wide range of waxing services. Using a curated selection of products to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs, staffers apply their expertise on clients' specific areas to ensure an enjoyable experience. A nutritionist and aesthetician are additionally on hand, both of whom emphasize natural treatments and discourage overconsumption of massage oil.
It’s difficult to name the best part of Jenneane’s Skin Care. Is it her adorable new shop, which is big, bright, and clean? Is it her extremely reasonable prices? Is it the incredible results that will make you feel like you never want to visit another salon? Or is it Jenneane herself, whose personality and warmth make everyone feel at ease? You’ll have to make an appointment for yourself to find out. Jenneane offers waxing services for men and women, which customers hail as the best, most painless waxes they’ve ever gotten. Her eyebrow services are especially in demand, as she is somehow able to coax both the scraggliest and the most over-plucked brows into perfect shape. Jenneane also does a wide range of facials, and offers facial series of 6 treatments to optimize your glowing results.

Q&A with Tania Medina, Stylist
People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?
A welcoming personable space in a great midtown location. A non-corporate atmosphere with genuine friendly stylists.
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Beauty might be on the inside, but I'm here to help you bring it out and flaunt it.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
Pureology deep conditioners are a great way to rehydrate and repair damaged hair. Pureology is a 100% vegan, no-sulfate formula with an anti-fade complex. Matrix Glossings and Paul Mitchell Shines ensure clean shades with extra shine.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
A hot-towel tea tree treatment makes anyone feel rejuvenated and relaxed, leaving the scalp clean and refreshed.
From within an elegant 1907 Victorian building, the styling staff at Details Salon updates looks with help from top-shelf products by Bumble and bumble and Dermalogica. The crew shears away overgrown strands and transforms hair identities with partial or full highlights and full color treatments. Inside private spa rooms, aestheticians call upon Dermalogica serums to cleanse pores and rejuvenate aging or acne-ridden skin. They wax away unwanted fuzz from the face, limbs, and bikini area, and enhance features with lash and brow tinting or makeup applications. Details Salon also styles wedding stars by gussying up brides, bridesmaids, and cake-toppers with trial and day-of makeup applications.
As an Aveda Concept Salon, Progressive Image Hair Art proudly stocks and implements an array of plant-based Aveda products.

Delving deeper into the realm of beauty, the spa also possesses expertise in makeup as well.
