Celebrating more than 25 years in the beauty profession––and more than 14 at the helm of Aurora Salon & Spa––Kellie Sullivan Hajjar leads a team of beauty professionals as they update looks with a full menu of salon and spa services. Stylists detach dead ends with trendy cuts or add length with 100% human-hair extensions that use a glue-free system to prevent hair from being damaged or eaten by ravenous kindergarteners. The spa’s skin pros combat acne, aging, and sun damage through custom facials, microdermabrasion, and rejuvenating peels packed with lactic and salicylic acids, and also provide select med-spa services including Botox and permanent makeup.
Even first-time visitors to Hollywood Tans might arrive to the salon with a tanning plan in mind, thanks to the company’s online Tanetics system. By asking questions such as “Do you have indoor tanning experience?” and “How soon do you want to meet your shade goal?” the program generates a tanning schedule tailored to guests envisioned results and timeline. The salon’s standup tanning booths flood skin with the glow of up to 60 built-in bulbs, and the high-pressure booth builds a base tan in as little as one 11-minute session and radiates only 1% UVB rays, which is equivalent to the amount the sun radiates on days when it’s in a good mood. Results can be amplified by one of Hollywood Tan's indoor tanning lotions, while a Mystic spray-tanning booth caters to the sun-shy by misting skin in a rich bronze formula that lasts up to eight days.
Elvira McCloskey hails from the Dominican Republic, where she first started out in the beauty industry. Today she works inside Salon 7 Elm, having racked up 20 years of experience in the interim. The licensed aesthetician and expert makeup artist makes it her mission to rescue faces from acne, scars, sun damage, wrinkles, and monster impressions that got stuck that way. She comes to their aid with treatments such as facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and makeup applications. Clients await their rejuvenation in a lobby that evokes a cozy woodland haven on a stormy day, with wooden floors and round brown armchairs backed by a sprawling mural of a tree just beginning to bud.
For two decades, the staff at Cari Skin Care Centre has pulled their aesthetic and therapeutic treatments straight from the annals of European spa tradition; they cleanse and exfoliate the pores of men and women with the popular European facial, remove unwanted hair using a European waxing technique, and pair exfoliating coffee body scrubs with baguettes. Products from G.M. Collin infuse skin with hydration, and the staff tailors treatments to treat imperfections including redness and the telltale signs of aging.
Skin Perfect by Dianna's clinically trained staff resurfaces epidermises with facial treatments that specifically target the ill effects of aging and acne. The clinical aesthetician welcomes both men and women into her elegant red-accented, Bombay-decorated room, where they slather skin with GlyMed professional products—packed with certified botanicals and advanced medical ingredients—to lessen hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and blemishes. They enhance collagen and elastin production with simple facial massages, and coax thickness out of thinning hair with circulation-boosting scalp massages. Brides and bridesmaids can also stop by the space for expert makeup applications and tips for keeping the groom from eating the cake all by himself.
To help clients maintain a sun-kissed glow all year round, Illuminations Tanning and Teeth Whitening outfits its contemporary loft space—tucked within Chelmsford Sports Club—with advanced Sun Capsule tanning beds. These high-powered systems come in both lay-down and standup forms, and each capsule is equipped with powerful UV bulbs that bronze skin in 9 to 12 minutes. Built-in overhead fans kept bodies cool in the VHR-69 and Cyclone booths, whereas the facial lamps in the Starpower 548 and 52/4F beds ensure complexions get a golden glow to match the rest of the body. The salon's collection of Devoted Creations lotions, protective eye goggles, and decorative stickers further enhances tanning sessions, whereas spray-tan services offer a UV-free alternative. Understanding that a bright, white smile is the best complement to any tan, Illuminations provides in-house teeth-whitening treatments as well as take-home teeth-whitening kits, which can be used in the privacy of one's glass-walled home.
