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.
The versatile staff of beauty specialists at Changes Salon transforms its clients with haircare, nail services, and full-on makeovers. The experienced technicians use top-of-the-line products, including OPI nail polish and Pureology haircare systems to ensure that clients leave feeling relaxed and looking so great that "You Make My Dreams Come True" starts playing every time they enter a room.
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.
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 Maria Giallanza Salon, a haircut becomes a sensory experience. With each styling session, the professionals include the luxurious Aveda Rituals—a Shampoo and Scalp Massage Ritual, Stress Relieving Hand Ritual, plus a Makeup and Lip Ritual all using Aveda's botanical products. The soothing scents of these natural beauty products waft through the air of the sleek salon, so guests can relax while the hair-tenders shape, texturize, and color locks. To complete new looks, the beauty experts can apply all-natural makeup, remove hair with wax, or inspire smiles by prank calling the mayor.
Rita’s Beauty Care uses reliable techniques and products when beautifying clients. Staff members remove unwanted facial fuzz by twisting cotton thread around follicles, and decorate arms and legs with natural henna tattoos. Both methods have been employed for centuries. The team members also utilize trusted brands, such as Éminence and Image Skincare, during facials and microdermabrasion treatments. And Rita's staff draws on more than 15 years of experience while performing other services, which include massages, waxing, and special-occasion hairstyling and makeup applications.
