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.
From the moment customers sink into one of Aqua Salon and Spa's ocean-blue styling chairs, the stylists are focused on creating the exact look they desire. Whether it's a drastic transformation or a quick trim, they can handle it all, offering cuts, color, and keratin treatments. Along with hair transformations, Aqua Salon and Spa also treats and beautifies skin. A skincare specialist analyzes and evaluates skin needs and goals before performing personalized, clinical facials, including a teen acne facial and anti-aging treatments.
The staff members at Go Platinum Salon and Medspa haven't stopped learning since they graduated from school. By focusing on continuing-education courses and staying abreast of new treatments, they have cultivated a med-spa service list that includes dermal fillers to reduce age lines, laser treatments to remove unwanted body hair, and Image Skincare chemical peels to revivify sagging skin. They also perform traditional spa services to give full-body glows via personalized facials and Aviva sunless spray tanning. They pamper scalps with haircuts and color treatments to create headscapes more dazzling than a mop dipped in glitter and tied around one?s chin. The salon also carries a full array of Jane Iredale Cosmetics so that their clients can beautify themselves at home.
The bold and blocky treatment chairs fit right into a open and modernistic design scheme of G2 Salon, where Gentiana and Christopher Watts lead a trained team of stylists in performing haircare, facials, and bodycare treatments. The team performed hair and makeup services for many of the competitors in the 2011 Mrs. Massachusetts pageant, and they utilize Jealous haircare products with botanical extracts along with restorative L'anza products to keep each of their client's locks healthy. They offer specialty facials with pure essential oils, deep-exfoliating natural enzymes, and potent antioxidants to brighten skin while also improving tone and texture.
The stylists and aestheticians at Velvet Trim Hair Spa only rely on top-shelf beauty products. For hair, they trust L’Anza color. For faces, their masks and serums contain ingredients such as 24-karat gold and caviar. And for lips, Juvéderm plumps up pouts.
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.
