The stylists at Sona Bella Salon and Day Spa pamper bodies from head to toe, starting at the top with precision haircuts down to pedicures that incorporate whirlpool footbaths and sugar scrubs. Before acquiring a fresh hair coloring, clients can pamper the face their locks will frame by getting a chemical exfoliation, microdermabrasion, or a cleansing facial. The spa’s aestheticians also tend to epidermises with waxing, aiding recovering Elvis impersonators by banishing their sideburns or readying clients for the beach by revealing satin-smooth legs. The spa’s nail technicians turn their attention to appendages with Creative Nail Design shellac polish, and massage therapists deepen relaxation with hot stones and Swedish maneuvers.
Equipped with Paul Mitchell and Moroccanoil products, the stylists at The Hair After Salon update manes with a full array of haircare services. Along with cuts and colors, they beautify styles with Awapuhi KeraTriplex treatments, deep-conditioning treatments, and waves or relaxers. Nailcare, waxing, and makeup applications are also available.
Staffed by a team of creative styling professionals and stocked with high-quality haircare and skincare products, 221 Post A Salon is a hub of fashionable makeovers. Stylists build upon their skillful scissor work with coloring, glazing, foils, and Brazilian hair-smoothing treatments. Skincare specialists add a personal touch to their facials with skin analysis and neck, shoulder, and scalp massages. Amid pastel purple walls and chic furniture, manicurists fuss about fingers and toes with mani-pedis, and bridal parties prepping for the cameras can opt for styling and makeup applications—as well as free beverages and pastries for groups of more than five.
It’s hard to reverse clipped curls or dyed hair. That's why the stylists at Dahlia's Beauty Salon make sure they‘re on the same page as their clients before they set to work. After personally greeting each person at the door, they consult with patrons about their hair aspirations and their secret wish to be addressed as "Commodore.” At every hair station, full-body mirrors rest against eggnog-hued walls, and customers get to relax in modern salon chairs during haircuts, perms, highlights, and keratin hair-straightening treatments.
Named best massage/facial service by Connecticut magazine for five years running, Tranquility places an emphasis on natural, holistic treatments. Customers enter a lobby decorated in soothing earth tones through a portal wreathed with vines, where they can then choose their preferred method of relaxation, beautification, and stress lancing. The light-to-medium pressure of a Swedish massage can improve muscle tone and stimulate circulation that stalls during the course of long workdays and transcontinental boat rides in sedentary soil boxes. The Rejuvenating facial, with its deep cleansing, toning, exfoliation, mask, and extractions, can hydrate the skin and reduce evidence of aging. Additionally, customers who spend a total of $400 (including this Groupon) in November and December at the spa and attached shop will receive a $50 gift certificate though the Shop and Save Days program.
Owner and stylist Frank Sisbarro brings 25 years of experience to the helm of Flip Salon and Boutique, where highly trained cosmetologists wield Redken products while clipping and coloring manes to meet each client's personal specifications and style. Smoothing keratin treatments, coloring services, and hair-tinsel extensions transform ho-hum hair into dynamic ’dos, as women, men, and children lounge amid the salon’s square mirrors and framed black-and-white prints. The staff artistically applies Mehron makeup to soon-to-be-rosy cheeks and lids, and custom Jon Renau wigs frame faces or attach to teddy bears for more realistic tea parties.
