The facial aficionados will also administer a stress-reducing massage, purifying mask, and hydrating treatment, which combine to bestow heads with a healthier appearance and a younger-looking outer layer.
If Guys & Dolls Hair Salon & Spa has a homey feel, it's probably because the space that now brims with scissors, haircare solutions, and nail polish was until the 1970s a cozy home lined with family portraits and a checklist of uncles banned from family reunions. Today, stylists Vicki Berrien and Heather Guagliardo are at the reins, showcasing their decades of experience styling hair, cleansing skin with facials, and accentuating eyes with eyelash extensions.
Catering to adults as well as children, Classy Clippers—a neighborhood fixture for 25 years—welcomes clients with complimentary coffee, tea, and cookies.

Though some salons tout themselves as family friendly, Classy Clippers backs up the claim with a special children's area decked out in coloring books and candy. And, in addition to lounging and playing, youngsters can receive a cut and style as the diligently contemplate which look will make the biggest splash at the preschool prom.
Butterfly Essential Wellness Spa’s therapists deliver customers from the stresses of everyday wear and tear with soothing massages and private massage rooms filled with tranquil music. The one-hour Swedish shea-butter massage uses a moisture-bestowing unguent to enhance the comfort of gliding massage strokes, gentle pressure, and shooting down hallways like a human luge. The massage itself gently uncoils muscles, bringing reduced tension, enhanced flexibility and circulation, and fewer winks from flirtatious Slinkys. Alternatively, couples can relax in tandem with the couples Swedish massage, with two massage therapists using their dexterous digits for simultaneous backrubs augmented by soothing massage oils. Departing customers are gifted with a positive thought card, offering a contented counterpoint to cynical fortune cookies.
This unassuming brick storefront gives way to a full-service salon where stylists excel at men’s, women’s, and children’s haircuts, as well as highlights, all-over color, and perms. Dry, dull locks are a thing of the past after a session with one of the talented, scissor-bearing staff members, who use deep conditioners to imbue locks with much-needed moisture or use ombre coloring techniques to create cascading curls in multiple hues. Beyond the blow-dryer, the staff also deals with unwanted strands by waxing away hair from the brows, sideburns, chins, and lips or even from the full face.
