It only seems natural for beautician Olivia Foti to own a salon and spa. Her more than 25 years of experience in the beauty industry is nearly upstaged by her long list of specializations, which include hair extensions, artificial nails, and facial waxing. But at her beauty haven, Salon De Solage, Olivia isn?t the only experienced technician. Many members of her team boast anywhere from 10 to 40 years of experience, and can beautify a range of hair textures with precision cuts and foil highlights.
In the salon?a sanctuary of colorfully bottled products enriched by zebra prints, plants, and red chairs?clients can also be found enjoying customized aromatherapy and reflexology massages, or having their digits done up with acrylic tips. Technicians create these tips from CND's SolarNail powders, which allow the nail bed to breathe beneath a hard exterior primed for polish, nail art, or tiny games of chess.
The recipient of various online and print nominations and accolades, La Dolce Belladonna Salon offers guests in a full slate of hair, nail, and makeup services. A veritable cadre of 17 stylists and technicians bustles around the space, shaping designer haircuts and freeing entangled cats from hair. Technicians touch up makeup and demolish unwanted bodily hair with molten waxes. Meanwhile, nail techs buff, shape, and trim nails before applying polishes.
At Love Your Skin By Hope, aesthetician Hope Acuna personalizes each skincare service with carefully selected products. Pretreatment consultations help Hope to tailor cleansing facials to each individual's skin type, and a complimentary patch test checks for allergies to looking pretty before every chemical peel.
Getting hooked on the House of Hair Addictions' personalized beauty treatments isn't dangerous??unless you're afraid of looking good. The stylists cut, color, and condition hair, expertly executing new techniques like ombre coloring, in which natural-looking highlights are painted in freehand. Their spa treatments, meanwhile, run the gamut from lush eyelash extensions to facials that hydrate skin more effectively than a rain cloud that follows you everywhere.
The certified technicians of Poshe' Skincare Salon customize each aesthetic service—from natural-nail treatments to full-body waxing—to their clients' individual traits as they dole out time-honored beauty advice. Armed with Dermalogica and Jan Marini Skin Research products, aestheticians help fend off impurities and aging with eight facials, each of which includes exfoliation, a nourishing mask, and hydration in addition to adding invigorating extras such as papaya enzymes, alpha hydroxy acids, or mineral sea salts. To further polish bodily surfaces, microdermabrasion liberates faces, necks, and upper bodies of dead skin cells to reveal fresher complexions. Permanent makeup decks eyelids, brows, or lips with durable daubs of micropigmentation, creating the appearance of natural-looking cosmetics sans the smudging, smearing, or telltale kiss marks on handsome department-store mannequins.
A sparkling chandelier, mirrors in gilded frames, a marbled Corinthian pillar. Ultra Lux Salon and Day Spa would live up to its name by d?cor alone. But once patrons slide into chairs, a team of hairstylists extends pampering still further by snipping off split ends, coloring locks, and adding length with extensions. Spa services such as massages, manicures, and waxing soothe bodies as well as strands.
