Nora Marvilli, CEO of Bella Fashion Designs, outfits models and beauty pageant contestants in glamorous dresses that charm photographers and bring home crowns. She also helps brides-to-be find their ideal dress within a vast collection of wedding gowns from reputable names such as Alfred Angelo, Zac Posen, and Mary's Bridal. For less formal situations, her shop also has plenty of causal women's clothing and sportswear. The spa portion of Bella Fashion Designs helps improve complexions with skin-revitalizing facials and dolls up hands and feet with nail services and Barbie clothes.
The Nails Spa's carefully chosen staff lavishes attention on clients' paws, wielding products from brands such as Essie, SkinCeuticals, and CND Shellac. Tan pedicure thrones host reclining bodies beneath mirrored archways as baby nail files play hide-and-seek on shelves hung with leafy ferns and bamboo.
The team at Jon Ric Salon has one goal: make their clients look and feel like royalty, even though royalty is illegal in the US. To do so, the staff combines their skills with high-quality products from brands such as Wella, Rusk, and Pravana. In addition to their full slate of hair and nail services, they also do waxing and makeup applications. The salon’s interior features hanging yellow lights, elegant wood-framed mirrors with pedestals, flowers, and homey lamps that make other fluorescent-light salons look like interrogation rooms. Conveniently, Jon Ric Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.
Kathy Schisler brings 23 years of nailcare experience MeJon Spa. Here, her focused and deliberate techniques yield well-manicured nails topped with classic lacquer or long-lasting gel polish, and her commitment to clients turns simple procedures into experiences more indulgent than bathing in a gourmet-chocolate fountain. For example, the ultimate spa pedicure begins with a therapeutic foot whirlpool and includes an exfoliating scrub, mask, and hot towels.
Essential Clinical Aesthetics' expert technicians melt away subcutaneous body fat with a barrage of Zerona body-sculpting treatments. Each 40-minute noninvasive procedure employs laser light to break down the walls of fat cells in much the same way as lighthouses use lasers to break down invading warships. This liposuction alternative targets specific body areas such as the love handles, stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, or chin. Zerona treatments result in very little pain, unlike other common cellulite treatments, such as lying in the path of a steamroller.
