The licensed aestheticians at Skin Bliss specialize in Beautiful Image facial and body sculpting, an anti-aging skincare method that—after being practiced and popularized in Europe for several years—has made its way to the United States. The FDA-approved treatment sends microcurrent waves into sagging skin to tighten tissue and soften fine lines without the need for cosmetic surgery or stuffing one's cheeks with three-dozen marshmallows. The sessions stimulate both collagen and elastin production, and faces remain free from redness or swelling after the treatment, so clients don't have to account for any downtime.
Cuts N Curls snips and clips shaggy-headed sprouts delivering fun and painless mini mop-top trimmings (starting at $9). Tykes take a seat inside NASCAR road racer and Barbie Mustang salon chairs parked in front of TV screens, which lets skilled stylists sculpt tiny tresses while thumbs fight off PlayStation video-game villains, eyes lose themselves in layered plots of G-rated movies, and brains soak up preschool pretentiousness watching episodes of Citizen Kane: The Animated Series. While kids are getting little ears lowered, parents can peruse child-friendly hair and bath products to clean and condition newly styled noggins.
At Basic Essentials, a team of certified professionals offers a gamut of forward-thinking salon and massage services. An experienced electrologist permanently stunts hair growth during electrolysis, and wax specialists temporarily evict encroaching hairs and misplaced birthday candles with face and body waxing. The clinic's master teacher of reiki—who is certified in the practice's highest level—optimizes intra-body energy flow during reiki sessions.
Relaxation. Pain relief. General well-being. These are just some of the benefits massage offers. At Nails and More Spa, massage therapist Chyanne Perry nurtures these benefits with Swedish and hot-stone massages. By lighting scented candles and using essential oils, she creates an even more tranquil experience with aromatherapy. A master of many muscle-melting modalities, she's also an expert in reflexology, alleviating aches throughout the body by manipulating trigger points on the feet.
Trio Hair Studio flaunts a duo of manicurists, including coproprietor Laura Vivod, a mitt-primping maven who boasts more than two decades of experience. During the Shellac manicure, a talon tamer will thoroughly shape cuticles and cleanse, trim, and file nails, leaving tensomes as spiffy as a freshly laundered space suit. Next, claws garner an ironclad coating of Shellac varnish, an innovative polish that stays shiny and chip-proof for up to two weeks. Clients can rest newly prettied hands during the spa pedicure, as their pintsize piggies receive unparalleled grooming and a classic or offbeat hue of professional OPI polish. A bright red sign shepherds patrons into Trio Hair Studio, where they can mimic poorly crafted wristwatches by unwinding among a neutral-toned interior gussied up with chic brown stools and studio lighting.
Whether it's their wedding day or just an average day, the staff at Studio 247 wants clients to look and feel beautiful. To that end, they pull from a luxurious stock of products that includes Essie and OPI nail polishes, hair-nourishing Morrocanoil products, and Murad skincare serums that allow the studio's aestheticians to tailor each facial to their client’s specific needs. They perform an extensive list of services that they update regularly in order to keep up with the beauty industry's latest trends. The hairstyling team, for example, now specializes in 100% human-hair extensions as well as Brazilian blowouts, which transform frizzy locks into strands that are sleeker and shinier than a motorcycle carved from freshly churned butter.
