Shear Elegance's stylists aim to please, whether tailoring formal updos for special occasions or cutting and coloring manes for quotidian elegance. The crew's services are backed by a guarantee, and they round out each service with a do-it-yourself lesson that equips clients with tips and techniques for re-creating their new look at home or on a jealous twin. Haircare specialists will even sometimes perform a complimentary shampoo and style for patrons who are having a bad day.
The professionals at Heads Up and Body Works beautify and pamper clients with salon and spa services ranging from haircuts to rose mud body wraps. And with spa packages such as All Dolled Up or the Dog House Special, they spend anywhere from two to four hours readying clients for special events or an evening of smiling gleefully at their reflection in the mirror.
Totally Tan’s turquoise-colored salon, decorated with beach artwork and tropical foliage, houses bronzing equipment that darkens skin tone in the face of time constraints and inclement weather. Optimized for building long-lasting color, the Future Sun bed gilds bodies with 46 lamps and hundreds of commissioned fireflies. Internal air conditioning keeps patrons comfortable as they recline in the SilverBullet, and aromatherapy soothes patrons who soak up rays in the S-Class. As an alternative to UV tanning, Mystic Tan booths darken skin by coating it in long-lasting bronzer.
Skin Therapy owner Stacy Beaudoin only opens her spa on evenings and weekends, but during that time, she's laser focused on pampering her clients' skin and nails. As a licensed electrologist, she can remove unwanted hair permanently with electrolysis. Alternatively, she can wax away body hair, using heat-sterilized tweezers and a fresh stick for every application. She also nourishes and rehydrates skin with Bioelements facials and peels and beautifies nails with eco-friendly polish during indulgent mani-pedis.
At Healing Hands Massage of New England, massage therapists eliminate stiff shoulders and sore backs through the power of soothing touch. Licensed massage therapist Marcella Allard uses firm, subtle pressure to break up knots and relieve stress patterns in worn or weary muscles. Sessions can be customized to the needs of each client, and use a blend of styles to promote circulation and improve flexibility.
