Owner Annie Labbate and her staff at Riverfront Hair Studio And Spa pamper clients with extensive services that include waxing, makeup application, haircuts and color, manicures, and pedicures. Aestheticians revitalize skin with more than 10 types of facials, and massage therapists soothe guests with Riverfront's signature massage: an 80-minute session in which essential oils and heated stones augment flowing massage strokes.
The hairstylists at Razberri’s Salon spruce up strands by tailoring the latest cuts, coloring techniques, and texturizing services to fit each client’s personal style. Before each service, the stylist conducts a consultation, a step considered essential to crafting a look that will meet all of the client's needs. And by exclusively using and carrying L’Oreal products, stylists can also demonstrate to clients how to achieve their salon-acquired looks at home or while camping in the aisles of a beauty-supply shop. In addition to hair services, the salon specializes in nailcare, body and facial waxing, and bridal services.
With a quarter century of professional experience, master stylist Peggy Farrelly leads a team that performs both hair and nail treatments. In the salon, stylists update ‘dos with traditional cuts and colors as well as keratin treatments and ombre color services with Paul Mitchell formulas. Pedicure chairs with built-in massagers continue to shame boring folding chairs, promoting relaxation while guests soak their feet. At the manicure tables, nail technicians use gel polish and overlays to support long-lasting manicures that can be ornamented with rhinestones and airbrushed nail art.
Amid crystal chandeliers and ornate, gilt-framed mirrors, the stylists of Salon Elemis administer precision cuts and keratin treatments using products from Redken, Schwarzkopf, and Paul Mitchell. They can add length to locks with Hairlocs extensions. Nearby, nail technicians beautify digits with OPI and CND gel polishes, and an eyelash specialist employs NovaLash extensions and lash perms to make eyes pop and smolder.
These things come from nature: olive oil, seaweed, and St. John's Wort. The savvy aestheticians of Body Beautiful Day Spa take these ingredients and perform soothing, natural facials that eliminate the use of harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin. Once outer beauty is achieved, clients can saunter over to a massage bed, where a versatile therapist inspires calm or relieves aches stemming from whiplash, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ, or thumb wars. The specialists round out their spa menu with body wraps, mani-pedis, and waxing.
Classified as Redken Elite Salons, both Metro Salons locations staff a stable of stylists who keep abreast of the latest techniques with ongoing training in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Appointments start with complimentary consultations, wherein patrons dish on their favorite looks and show stylists their 10 favorite hairs. Then, hair pros draw on Redken, Wella, and Coppola products for a variety of services, from painting on highlights to trimming split ends. A final style ensures clients walk out ready to pose for sidewalk photo shoots or star in traffic-cam footage for the five o'clock news.
