Enhancing Mother Nature's spiritual flow, Green Tea Yoga energizes chakras and enlivens aspiring yogis with a rotating schedule of seasonal 60-, 75-, or 90-minute classes. Green Tea Yoga's experienced instructors guide twisters and toners through a series of poses to help to strengthen postures and limber up limbs. EarthSky yoga, a moderate-intensity class, brims with Vinyasa flow techniques such as bending, stretching, and controlled breathing. Students in search of a more intense course can slide into a Forrest yoga session, and moms-to-be can partake in a prenatal course or the Momaste class, designed to help to relieve stress and shake off lingering fears of toddlers taking over the world. Occasional children’s classes are also offered throughout the year.
During service sessions, owner and stylist Amanda Furnari doesn’t just sit back and watch her team work—she rolls up her sleeves, pulls out her shears, and gets to work. As an industry veteran with more than eight years of experience, Furnari carries certifications in SoCap and Balmain hair extensions as well as Schwarzkopf color. And it’s these types of skill sets that helped her salon win Salem/Beverly’s Best Hair Salon by Market Surveys of America in 2011.
Furnari and her fellow female stylists bolster natural beauty with salon services that include color treatments, hairstyling, waxing, and makeup applications. And as they work their magic, the team members take clients to cloud nine thanks to the salon’s sky-blue walls, soft, white salon chairs, and famous glass elevator that goes to nowhere.
Amid peach-hued walls, Carriage House Salon & Spa’s team of stylists and aestheticians lavishes patrons with hair, skin, and nail treatments. Under beaming track lights and sun rays pouring in from floor-to-ceiling windows, hairdressers tend to tresses on the salon floor, where locks can be snipped off or coiled into occasion-ready updos. Nail stations brim with much more than polish, as many treatments can be supplemented with a warm paraffin wrap that hydrates skin and eases discomfort endured by people with arthritis. In private treatment rooms, massage therapists unfurl knotted shoulder and neck muscles. During facials, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care products and techniques stimulate lymphatic systems and dress skin in natural plant and mineral extracts brought to the spa by a friendly wood nymph.
For the stylists at Salon Bella, staying ahead of fashion and technology is of utmost importance. That is why they undergo continual training in emerging hair, nail, and skin techniques and use only high-quality products to beautify clients. They lavish tresses with Aveda haircare products and polish faces with PCA peels.
At Color Bar Salon & Spa, the staff members aren’t merely stylists—they’re artists of sorts, who take a creative, design-minded approach to each client’s appearance. From fashion-forward hair services to nail care that calls on OPI polishes and fastidiously sterilized instruments, they tap into their years of experience to pamper and beautify each guest. In the spa, rejuvenating facials leave skin looking luminous and hot-stone and deep-tissue massages release tension lurking within muscles. The staff even performs laser hair-removal treatments that grant skin with permanent smoothness, forgoing the need to use razors, wax, or tiny Zambonis ever again.
