"Individuality is crucial," says Richard Calcasola, the founder and mastermind behind Maximus Spa Salon. He's referring to the importance of understanding a client's lifestyle and habits before providing a haircut, ensuring that each resulting look is both unique and maintainable. Listening is a skill Calcasola has stressed to his team for more than 40 years, and it has earned him a reputation for being friendly and approachable even as he helps set international styling trends.
At Maximus, Calcasola oversees a staff of beauty professionals who draw on his lessons to cut and color hair. They also perform a number of other spa-related services, treating guests to waxing treatments, manicures, and skin-firming facials. When he's not consulting with celebrities and trimming the tresses of publications such as Vogue and the New York Times, Calcasola can often be spotted making the rounds at the salon himself.
Inside relaxing private rooms bedecked in earth-tone paints, oriental murals, and soft-lighting fixtures, experienced medical professionals administer rejuvenating, technology-driven treatments that bolster outer beauty without surgical intervention. FDA-approved laser systems take time off of aiding boardroom PowerPoint presentations to blanket patients' skin with energy wavelengths that can reduce body hair, dark spots, and acne. Board-certified surgeons utilize lab-created serums to ease the appearance of stress wrinkles and fine lines found on façades. To ensure patients pair up with the proper technological assistant, helpful technicians discuss all treatment options with Laser Plus Spa clientele before administering any procedures.
La Bellezza Hair Salon & Spa's owners, Miro and Melo, draw from more than 40 years of salon experience, and they oversee a skilled team that can perform a variety of services. Stylists can traverse clients' craniums to shape, color, and texturize hair with keratin treatments, spiral waves, or rainbow Slinkys. The staff uses All-Nutrient organic color for single process colorings and organic bleach for highlights. Or, in the spa and salon's private treatment rooms, aestheticians can perform facials and waxing treatments to add youthfulness to the skin or gussy up the fingers and toes with mani-pedi treatments.
At Age Smart Solutions the staff specializes in all types of anti-aging skincare and products. With its selection of facials, laser skin-tightening and pigment-reduction treatments, oxygen infusions, and adult-sized pacifiers, the trained aestheticians make skin look and feel younger. Smoothed, brightened skin becomes the perfect canvas for permanent-makeup treatments, eyelash extensions, and eyebrow shaping. A slew of other cosmetic treatments rounds out Age Smart Solutions' service list.
The stylists at De La Mer Salon & Spa specialize in Brazilian straightening and hair extensions, helping clients feel their finest for weddings, birthdays, and nights on the town. Spa staffers glamorize nails with Shellac manicures, revitalize visages with facials, and apply permanent makeup that holds its color longer than a rainbow created in the spray of the fountain of youth. De La Mer Salon & Spa also boasts an accessories boutique populated with stylish handbags and fine jewelry.
The wellness professionals at Inside Out Beauty Bar know that healthy bodies are beautiful, so they nourish clients with botanical tonics that are either edible or topical. To enhance overall physical health, they offer juice-cleanse programs that "hydrate, alkalize, energize" bodies for a leaner figure. They also whip up à la carte smoothies and beverages with fruits and veggies freshly harvested from Peter Rabbit's knapsack. To enhance skin, they carry organic, all-natural, cruelty-free product lines that deliver customized results: some products moisturize and replenish vitamins; others boost proteins and correct skin damage. Staff members complement health-based treatments with cosmetic services including makeup applications and eyelash extensions.
