Blond-hued brick walls serve as a minimalist backdrop inside Tomoko Shima’s eponymous hair salon and reverberate with the owner and stylist’s cutting-edge styling techniques. After studying cosmetology and makeup in Tokyo and Osaka for five years, Tomoko crossed the globe to establish salons in New York City. Each hair service harnesses products including Unite Eurotherapy, which eschews such hair-damaging ingredients as sulfates, parabens, and casting calls for bubblegum. The brimming shelves also parade hair color from Davines, and lemongrass shampoo unleashes the herb's complex citric bouquet. Along with traditional haircuts and coloring, Tomoko also calls upon the increasingly popular japanese straightening technique.
Toni&Guy Hairdressing Academy’s salons, where skilled students dress tresses, continue a four-decades-old mane-taming legacy that began at a single salon in London. The academy sorts stylists by specialty, allowing them to focus on the latest trends and techniques in their respective fields and preventing inter-brand quick-draw challenges between blow-driers. Hair artisans snip and sculpt strands to configure coifs into the proper shape before treating them to a thorough wash and fashionable style according to client desires, uncovered during a complimentary consultation. Hue specialists, alternatively, coat locks with full-coloring treatments, sprucing up strands with nonnative tints and building protective borders so they don't migrate to fragile eyebrow ecosystems.
A certified massage therapist, Jamie Faria performs multiple modalities and services designed to heal and detox the body.

Alternatively, she also offers spray-tanning services as well as detox body wraps and ear-candling sessions, which use aromatic lavender candles.
