Salon Chic Downtown’s owner, Rose Zagra, draws on 20 years of beauty-industry experience and nine years as a Creative Nail Design master technician to orchestrate a symphony of luxurious beauty treatments. To guarantee personalized service, each treatment, like all good superhero-sidekick relationships, kicks off with a one-on-one question-and-answer session. Salon Chic's nail technicians have all spent at least five years beautifying extremities, and can beautify nails with traditional polish, long-lasting CND Shellac, or artificial tips that lengthen fingers without having to spike the hand cream with fertilizer. The salon’s hair services include texture-altering treatments that range from perms to Brazilian blowouts, and its facials and chemical peels employ products from Bioelements and SkinMedica to rejuvenate skin.
County Line Beauty Salon's technicians have more than 15 years of experience turning unremarkable locks into strikingly colorful and masterfully cut coifs. After clients declare their desired look, stylists snip hairs into place before skillfully deploying blow-dryers to create a lustrous, straightened sheen not unlike that of a freshly ironed snakeskin. Those who choose to top newly cropped coifs with some color can sit back as the salon's stockpile of Redken products power a color conversion that rehues strategically chosen strands to create dynamic partial highlights. A face-framing new cut and blow-dry takes about 45 minutes and highlights usually take an additional hour of chair time. Both treatments can translate into a youthful-looking head, which often translates into a youthful strut and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Though not included with this Groupon, full highlights are available for an additional cost.
Tucked inside of Salons by JC Austin, Mane Trendz welcomes clients in search of conservative dos, modern cuts, or dramatic high-fashion looks. This is all thanks to stylist Georgina Alfaro, a six-year industry veteran who graduated at the top of her class at cosmetology school. Although she focuses on hairstyling—cuts, coloring, highlights, and permanent-straightening methods—she also pampers her clients with manicures and pedicures.
At Paris Nails & Spa’s welcoming nail-centric salon, trained technicians pamper patrons with a fully stocked arsenal of CND Shellac, OPI, and Gelish polishes, as well as a full lineup of spa treatments. Staffers can augment classic mani-pedis with the application of acrylics, gel polish, or solar-resistant pink-and-white nails, or deepen relaxation with the soothing ministrations of sea-salt scrubs, mud masks, and the warm kneads of hot-stone or oil massages. Technicians extend their treatment prowess with a full spa menu of facials, body waxes, eyelash treatments, and permanent-makeup applications, each working to accent patrons' natural radiance without painting them with gold leaf.
CoCo Salon and Day Spa's team of stylists, medical aestheticians, and massage therapists may not share the same areas of expertise, but they do have one thing in common. They all know how to listen to their clients, taking notes on their stylistic preferences or skin conditions before cutting and coloring hair on the scalp or temporarily or permanently removing it from other parts of the body. Just as massage therapists customize their techniques to ease anxieties or break up adhesions, aestheticians devise body treatments that wrap clients in their choice of exfoliating salt, Baltic Sea mud, or anti-aging creams. Chandeliers spread a warm glow throughout the spa’s private treatment rooms, each of which includes a shower and a corps of fairy attendants.
