Floor-to-ceiling windows spill sunlight across Liz Lanza’s contemporary salon, splashing golden rays over high-vaulted ceilings and the sleek track lighting that takes its place once the sun goes down. The day-spa area provides a tranquil retreat where clients can disappear for a focused energy treatment such as the Amethyst quartz-covered Biomat surface, which emits healing far-infrared rays and negative ions that scare ailments away with pessimistic comments on life. Spa-goers can also slide beneath the white linens of a treatment bed as an aesthetician coaxes radiant skin to the surface with traditional European facials and technologically enhanced treatments including Bio-Ultimate Facelift, a combination of microcurrent’s low level energy and the collagen-stimulating infrared rays of an LED photofacial rejuvenation treatment.
A quaint, powder-blue building houses Donatella's Salon & Day Spa, an oasis of pampering that beckons weary patrons with promises of health and beauty from head to toe. The staff welcomes guests by first ushering them to a changing room, where they can slip into a robe and slippers or a comfortable San Diego Chicken ensemble. Before relishing in a cellulite-reducing, toning vacuum massage or an anti-aging facial, patrons can indulge in the spa's rainfall shower equipped with massage jets, then take time out for themselves in the aromatherapy sauna. A quiet room allows for more time to relax, meditate, or read. As an Aveda concept salon, Donatella's utilizes plant-sourced products, such as textured organic marshmallow-root lotions, to leave skin feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
Organic skincare products feature prominently in Fountain of Youth Skin & Nail Spa's assortment of beauty treatments. Nina Butera, a licensed aesthetician and nail technician, leverages organic, medical-grade skincare products to draw out dormant skin tones and treat conditions ranging from rosacea to acne. She also helps her clients ward off unwanted body hair with waxing services, and she slathers digits in Zoya and shellac polishes to protect nails from being chipped by disoriented golfers.
With six manicures and seven pedicures in their arsenal, the skilled staffers at FRESH Nail Lounge and Spa lavish hands and feet with treatments that rely on products from Creative Nail Design, Essie, and OPI, and prioritize safety and hygienic practices. But they don?t stop at nail treatments?they call upon botanical ingredients to soothe and beautify bodies and faces. Highly-skilled skin care clinicians perform custom-blended facials for each individual's skin type.
From their perch near Syracuse University, Studio FX’s team of hairstylists, nail artists, and wax technicians have beautified locals for more than 35 years. Their specialty hair services include highlights, hair extensions, updos, and Brazilian blowouts, which leave hair sleeker and more manageable for up to five months. Apart from hair, they paint nails, apply make-up, wax, and lengthen eyelashes with extensions.
When clients visit DeJon?s Hair Design, they aren't getting just another haircut. The salon staff meticulously creates classic and modern haircuts that benefit each client's face shape and grooming routine. Stylists fade gray hairs on men with a five-minute color treatment, and add highlights to women?s locks. The spa side of the business offers relaxation with Manuka honey facials and mani-pedis.
