Patrick Viteri founded his salon in 1984, when both hair bands and the hair of Margaret Thatcher were at the peak of their popularity. Armed with DevaCurl and Paul Mitchell products and years of experience, he and his locally trained team wrangle tresses at New York, Boston, and Toronto hair shows when not cutting hair, coloring it, or serenading clients' wild curls. Sponge-painted walls, reddish-brown brick, and cozy, olive-toned chairs await visitors, who settle onto blond wood perches to receive deep-conditioning treatments in the sun-flooded space.
At Cosmetic and Wellness Center, the team of doctors has a suite of laser technologies at the ready. These laser technologies make procedures, such as body shaping and anti-aging treatments, much less invasive. The Elite laser has customizable wavelengths, spot sizes, and pulse durations that give greater flexibility to adapt laser hair removal and vein treatments to each clients' skin types, and the RevLite SI Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser can deliver up to 1.6 Joules of energy to difficult-to-remove, multi-colored tattoos.
Treating clients from face to foot, the team works to meet clients' goals for a smoother body with Smartlipo and SmoothShapes, and smoother skin using Botox and dermal fillers such as Radiesse and Juvederm. To augment treatment outcomes, the doctors recommend Jan Marini skin products, which are powered by ingredients including coenzyme Q and reservatrol.
In almost 30 malls sprinkled across four states, Beauty Plus Salon beckons prospective makeover recipients with a fleet of skilled stylists and a colossal selection of professional beauty products. "The beauty industry never slows down," staffers say on Facebook, so "neither do we." That's why mall-goers find Beauty Salon open seven days a week. Between the retail shelves that average 500 nail polish colors, clients get gussied with services that pamper hair, skin, and nails.
During Simplicity Salon’s three-hour Coppola keratin smoothing treatment, a formaldehyde-free protein complex, encases hair follicles in a keratinous bond, straightening strands, adding shine, and ensuring spider-shaming levels of silkiness. The treatment eliminates up to 95% of frizz, making hair appear longer while cutting down on morning blow-dry times. Hair must be kept dry for 72 hours after the treatment, precluding hair washing or underwater swimming dance moves. Straight strands last for 3–5 months, depending on care and hair type. Your Groupon includes keratin shampoo and conditioner (a $40 value) for post-treatment maintenance.
In spite of the name, Community Massage epitomizes personal service. The massage therapists tailor each deep-tissue, reflexology, or hot-stone massage session to suit clients' unique body type or set of instructions tattooed on their back. Similarly, aestheticians customize facials to hydrate dry skin or draw excess oil from pores.
Gaddiel Medina and his family helm a staff of talented hair artists who craft polished coiffures for clients and fashion shows. While they slather strands with keratin treatments and snip away dead ends, Gaddiel's bilingual stylists speak both English and Spanish with their primary and secondary mouths.
