Twenty-five years ago, a small group of women envisioned a client-centric salon where no two haircuts were alike. Ambiance Salon is the product of that vision, a place where stylists assess each client’s hair type and craft a look that meets their needs and goals.
Through sleek cuts, cutting-edge coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments, these stylists are able to breathe new life into hair. The staff also pampers with mani-pedis, eyebrow shaping, and airbrush tanning.
The beauticians at La Belle Moi Salon & Skin Studio pamper skin and pacify muscular aches with a slew of haircare, skincare, and massage services. Bridal makeup applications prepare women for the big day, when Earth rotates about its axis in slightly more than 24 hours. Additionally, spa manicures can prep fingers for ritual puppet shows at the wedding reception. The studio’s spa area glimmers with light from crystal-laden overhead chandeliers as clients wait on cozy plush chairs and couches amid zebra-striped curtains. Fine, knee-high vintage wood tables fleck the landscape, matching the dark stained hardwood floors on which they stand. In the massage room, flickering candles illuminate a wood carving of a peacock to remind guests of their beauty, and an ornate clock proves that even Father Time can dress up.
At Sorelle Spa Salon, custom facials infused with botanically derived Aveda and Bumble and bumble products target everything from blemishes to aging skin. Nail technicians, meanwhile, glaze fingertips with OPI or Shellac polish after dipping hands and feet in paraffin and exfoliating them with a gentle scrub. Sorelle Spa Salon's massage therapists prefer to relax tense back muscles with hot stones, a safe alternative to hot coffee mugs.
Ask for razor cutting or a flat-iron finish at some salons and you'll be politely told they don't do that there. But at Mauro Tollis Salon Hair Colour Group it would be no problem. That's because the salon's stylists engage in continuing education to keep up with the latest in cutting and styling hair. From Japanese straightening treatments to the Bio Ionic Kerasmooth keratin service, the salon is plugged into new and trendy techniques.
Therapy Spa Beauty and Health offers a slate of facials, from simple teen acne treatments to light-based anti-aging procedures, all with the common aim of helping clients attain their image goals and boost their self-confidence. Their European deep-cleaning facials provide general purification and hydration for all skin types, and collagen treatments use a nourishing mask to soften fine lines and help stymie other signs of aging. The staff further guides clients to optimal beauty with the Transitions Lifestyle body slimming system. This system uses meal plans, supplements, and an interactive web tracking system to help clients slim down and finally fit into their high school backpack.
Amici means "friends" in Italian. It's only appropriate, then, that owner Lina Maffei sees her Euro-style salon as a friendly gathering place where clients are greeted with a warm smile and personal attention befitting of a good friend. Lina's been in the industry for nearly three decades, and with the help of her talented staff of stylists and colorists, she's created a space ripe for personal transformation. That could come via a cut or a change of hair color, a dramatic new makeup regimen, or a keratin treatment to straighten locks that refuse to acknowledge gravity. Salon Amici also offers bridal and special-event services, and favors products by Goldwell, Matrix, and DermOrganic.
