Reflecting a spirit of diversity, Four 40 Beauty Salon congregates a team of coif clippers, aestheticians, and massage therapists under one roof to administer beautifying and relaxing services to a multicultural, all-ages clientele. Locks succumb to a full menu of cuts, colors, and conditioning treatments, and men can get more gussied up with beard and mustache trims. But the studio walls listen to more than just the snipping of scissors and the screams of severed hair falling to the ground. Skilled aestheticians pamper faces with a menu of facials and skilled muscle menders work out kinks and tension with an array of massages, such as Swedish and deep tissue.
Courtney and Corey Nappa complement each other’s skill sets well. Courtney has a wealth of business experience and a passion for beauty, and Corey has years under his belt as a personal trainer and fitness-center manager. They realized that they could combine their skills into an ideal health-club experience, and Ten X Club was born.
On the fitness end of the business, instructors hold group Pilates, yoga, and spin classes. Cardio and weight-lifting rooms feature equipment from manufacturers such as Nautilus and Precor. A kids’ playroom keeps tykes entertained while parents shed sweat. On the other end of the spectrum, the sleekly appointed salon features hair services, mani-pedis, and spray-tanning services in a quiet environment, the air perfumed with the scent of hair products. Here, too, members can send their kids to the playroom while they enjoy grownup relaxation time with beautifying services, adult conversation, and the freedom to eat animal crackers any way they choose.
The licensed aestheticians at Alluna Skin Care customize revitalizing facial and body treatments to the needs of each client, tackling blemishes, fine lines, and stress with quality products from brands such as Pevonia and Jane Iredale. The team personalizes services such as signature facials, microdermabrasions, and enzyme peels to rejuvenate appearances and leave skin as smooth and irresistible as a laminated ice-cream cone. Professional makeup applications and waxing gussy up bodies before special occasions or nights on the town, and therapeutic massages cultivate relaxed musculature under freshly refurbished skin.
With extensive experience in aesthetic medicine and laser surgery, Dr. Ross brandishes the highest-quality lasers, the latest pharmaceuticals, and upscale facilities to safely and professionally perform result-oriented, youth-enhancing aesthetic treatments. The Thermage laser skin-tightening treatment tautens skin on the lower face, chin, and upper neck by safely heating the skin to reinspire stagnated collagen factory workers. The pixel pixies inside the Fraxel laser perform a thorough peel treatment to decrease sun damage, fine lines, and scarring over the entire face, excluding the eyes. Go laser-free with the Radiesse treatment, which employs a syringe of dermal filling to supplement lip lines, enhance the resolute fortitude of the chin and jaw, unfold cheek pockets, and cut the marionette strings that induce involuntary smile lines and Broadway dance numbers.
More than a decade ago, Manijeh Roshan was receiving electrology treatments and grew curious about how and why it worked to banish hair. Curiosity led to formal study and training and then to 14 years of experience at Manijeh’s Skin Care and Electrology. Using natural products from Decléor and Pevonia Botanica, Manijeh tailors treatments to the skin of each client while using sterile, disposable implements to ensure safety and cleanliness. In addition to facial and body treatments, waxing and electrolysis take two different routes to make skin as smooth as a buttered dolphin.
A Cut Beyond International Salon & Spa's experienced staff dresses nails with lasting layers and reinvents tresses with healthy treatments and Paul Mitchell products. Once manicure-seekers settle into a sanitized station, the technician will swaddle digits with an Axxium gel manicure, a light-cured polish that normally lasts for two weeks or more (a $40 value). During the 45-minute service, nail coatings solidify under a heat lamp so no additional dry-time is required and hands can immediately resume operatic finger-puppet enactments. The spa manicure, a 45-minute treatment, covers digit-endings with preservative-free polish and centers around a hand-and-forearm massage that stimulates senses with tea-tree, lavender, and lemongrass essential oils and unlimited high-fives (a $25 value). Further paw maintenance cleans up cuticles, reshapes nails, and extracts peanut-brittle from beneath nail beds.
