Inside Maria's Salon & Spa, Patrick Fernandez designs face-flattering coifs. He is an experienced shearer, and can snip everything from a simple bang trim to a more complex layered, blunt, textured, or crop cut. In addition to crafting haircuts, Patrick also adds new hues to manes with highlights, lowlights, and multistep color.
With a sprawling front porch, 10-foot ceilings, and a dramatic interior archway, the Craftsman-style bungalow that shelters this beauty oasis hasn't lost any of the charm it has cultivated since its construction in 1908. Red and blue trim adorns the outside, mirroring the beauty found within in the form of hardwood floors, decorative wood molding, antique furniture, and a fireplace.
The experienced aestheticians of Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, the house’s current tenant, tend to nailcare, massage, hairstyling, and skincare services amid the splendid architecture, which is illuminated by chandeliers in every room. These spa specialists tackle skin and hair woes armed with elixirs from Obagi, Redken, and Paul Mitchell, and beautify clients with permanent cosmetics and mineral makeup—mined in Sri Lanka’s famed lipstick caverns. Sometime in the near future, spa patrons can head to the attached two-story structure, a former garage apartment built in the ’30s, and unwind further with little treats from the soon-to-be dessert café and coffeehouse.
When he sees a problem, Pasquale DeVito fixes it?even if that means he has to reinvent scissors. Frustrated by the overthinning, cuticle-damaging effects of normal shears, DeVito drew on his more than 20 years of hairstyling experience to create the Intext Shears. These blades cut strands slowly and with more control while also maintaining the cuticle?s integrity. There, amid sleek black-and-white decor brightened by blue and purple lighting, DeVito and his team shape both classic and modern ?dos that flatter faces whether they?re oval, heart shaped, or octagonal.

At The Atelier, staffers pamper customers' hair, skin, and nails with premium, often organic products as their guests sink into comfy salon chairs. Nail techs brighten nails with OPI and Essie polishes, and premium add-ons, such as a mineral clay mask or chocolate-shea-butter scrub, transform mani-pedis into luxurious spa experiences. The aestheticians use organic Image products during facials and use seaweed during detoxifying body wraps or mermaid-lookalike contests.
