When it comes to practicing beautification techniques, the aestheticians at Mood Salon aren't content to rehearse solely inside their shop. They also attend beauty trade shows and continuing-education classes, perpetually adding to their repertoire of hair, nail, and skincare treatments. Clients sit in modern, blocky chairs at each styling station, where the staff trims, conditions, and colors tresses during both standard and special-occasion appointments. Nail technicians, meanwhile, provide an alternative to kickboxing a rainbow by adding color to toes with long-lasting gel polish. Dermalogica products refresh complexions through various facials, and custom waxing services strip unwanted hair from the face and body.
Together, certified lash extensionists Whitney Waldman and Melissa Shepherd boast more than 15 years in the film, television, and fashion industries. This gives them a unique frame of reference as they tailor eyelash extensions to each client's individual needs. During sessions, they meticulously adhere each extension to the client's natural lashes for a more-voluminous look without messy mascara. Whitney and Melissa also welcome questions and offer advice to maximize lash efficiency, suggesting clients avoid saunas, water-based mascara, and wise guys prone to eye poking.
Broadway's licensed massage therapists and aestheticians refresh patrons with body treatments and skincare. His-and-her packages coddle couple-halves with 105 minutes of full-body pampering, ideal for a Valentine’s Day gift or moment of respite from a romantic game of Duck, Duck, Goose. Swirls of organic body polish brighten and hydrate skin with a blend of berries, fruit oils, and antioxidant-rich pomegranate or panda-attracting eucalyptus infusions. The 45-minute treatment concludes with a moisturizing overcoat of 100% pure eucalyptus or pomegranate body cream. During each customized 60-minute massage, therapist Brian Robinson uses a vegan, organic body cream to glide long, flowing strokes across overwrought muscles and scrawl movie spoilers onto clients’ backs.
Licensed massage therapist Caitlin Byrne sends calming echoes through muscle walls with her therapeutic bodywork. Caitlin can promote relaxation with Swedish strokes, or use firmer deep-tissue or trigger-point techniques to access lower-layer aches. Guests may also request a signature injury massage after a game of bobbing for watermelons leaves the neck in a pinch.
The unisex Dollface Salon has built a beauty all-star squad, joining everyone from hairstylists and eyelash-extension specialists to makeup masters, licensed aestheticians, and nail techs. Always ready to offer something a little different, stylists shave intricate designs and maps that lead to chests full of treasure maps into patrons' ’dos, and apply rainbow mink lashes to create a set of kaleidoscopic pupil guards. The salon's staff also treats blemishes and age spots at the cellular level using PCA Skin products, which they pick out based on a one-on-one consultation that identifies each client's skin type and most pressing conditions.
Inspire Salon's stylists transform their clients' tresses in a polished and welcoming environment. During 90-minute Brazilian blowout treatments, stylists coat strands with a smoothing serum that sinks deep into hair cuticles to silkify wild manes. Clinging to coifs for three to four months, the treatment shields strands from errant humidity and exiles frizz to tumbleweed gardens. The Bumble and bumble's Concen-straight treatment smoothes locks for up to 30 shampoos, imbuing head gardens with a glossy glow and making hair more manageable to style. The formula's gemstone blend of malachite, sapphire, tourmaline, and pearl convinces strands' curves to relax, and light hints of silicone seal the results against heat, time, and vindictive hats.
At Fratelli Bistro, each calzone begins with a circle of dough, a swirl of homemade marinara, and a generous portion of meats and veggies. After assembling the toppings, cooks shape the dough into a half-moon and bake it to a rich golden brown—the hue you would get if you mixed the colors of the Italian flag. Cooks take similar care when crafting other entrees, whether rolling meatballs, breading eggplant slices, or stuffing oven-baked subs. They round out meals with two classic Italian desserts (cannoli and tiramisu) and cups of freshly brewed Boyds coffee.
