Since 2004, Gina Camaj's hairstyling skills have landed her hair and makeup gigs at weddings, photo shoots, and television programs. At Gina Camaj Salon and Spa, she and her team of fellow stylists use a full line of Paul Mitchell products for haircare appointments that range from trims and highlights to keratin treatments and eyelash extensions. While Gina oversees salon operations, the salon's co-owner, Karli Richardson, supervises the facility's spa. There, licensed aestheticians and massage therapists administer beautifying and relaxing treatments such as body scrubs, myofascial massages, and weight-loss mud wraps, which slim physiques more effectively than daily alligator-wrestling contests.
Stylists at Bliss Salon & Boutique can do more than cut and color hair–they can give their clients more of it. Great Lengths hair extensions transform modish bobs into sultry tresses in the space of a single appointment. Stylists treat existing strands to Goldwell color and Moroccanoil conditioners, groom and polish nails, and use wax to sculpt brows and life-size statues of clients. Their attention to fashion can be seen in the elegant black and white decor of the salon, accompanied by a definition of the word “bliss” illumined by a crystal chandelier.
Rather than false lashes or implants, Simply Lashes' certified stylist, Lori Manny, applies Xtreme Lashes extensions to a single eyelash at a time. Despite being Lori's signature treatment, creating elegant, natural-looking lashes only skims the surface of her available services. A skincare specialist for more than 10 years, she treats epidermises with Dermalogica products during custom facials that can diminish signs of aging or acne. She likewise enriches skin by administering pore-unclogging chemical peels, waxing away unwanted body hair, and applying makeup that ranges from subtle to Blue Man Group impersonator.
The team at Sin Pelo's specializes in aesthetic services for both men and women. When they apply eyelash extensions, their attention to detail prevents clumping. Additionally, the aestheticians round out their services with facials, microdermabrasions, and body waxing.
At Just Glamorous Salon & Boutique, clients, and more specifically, their unique beauty and style needs, come first. That’s why, with every haircut, clients also receive a shampoo and blowout style; why the Kertain smoothing treatment is designed to keep locks sleek for up to three months; and why owner and stylist Rachel Peluso frequently journeys to fashion-savvy NYC to stock the salon’s boutique.
In addition to hair services, the staff also beautifies clients with specialty makeup and waxing services, whether it’s for the big wedding day or the big welding day, which involves a lot of molten metal and, thankfully, no one wearing highly flammable gowns.
Lash Out certified lash extensionist Courtney Vogel volumizes clients' natural eyelashes one lash at a time. She eschews fake lash strips; she prefers to use the Lavish Lashes system, which builds upon existing lashes instead of covering them up. Clients relax in a comfortable chair with their eyes closed while Courtney applies soft, natural-looking lashes one by one to the client's real lashes. Although this detailed service takes time and concentration, it adds length and volume without the need for globing on clumpy paste or gluing on doll-size feather dusters.
