An expert at helping people look their best, Maryanne Giannini has worked in the beauty industry for more than 35 years. When she opened Dazzlz Spa Salon in 1991, Giannini assembled a staff that shared her passion, talents, and telekinetic control over hair dryers. She eventually hired more than 10 stylists and nail technicians, many of whom have decades of experience in areas such as hair color, makeup application, and mani-pedis. Amid the salon’s dark-brown and red walls, this professional staff works with its clients—men, women, and children—to sculpt haircuts that complement hair types and lifestyles. When not working at salon chairs, the staff members escort clients into private treatment rooms where they massage muscles and enclose bodies in shoulder-to-toe wraps.
The techs at all Victoria's Nails and Spa locations have one thing in common: they pride themselves on running clean shops where clients can come to get their paws pampered. Techs do their best work at the foot of comfortable pedicure chairs, where they apply polish to toes to make them more attractive and less likely to be mistaken for weird bugs and stepped on.
Moxie Blue Salon's seasoned stylists snip curls and hydrate locks with precise haircuts and salon services prefaced by a thorough consultation. After discussing desired angles and which cheekbone most deserves to display its tattoo, a scissors wielder frees scalps of split ends during the 45-minute haircut. Once lighter and layered, hairdos bask in a deep-conditioning treatment that hydrates heads and relaxes overly stressed strands. Feel free to have a stylist sprinkle coifs with partial or full highlights, a strand-coating lightener that adds dimensionality without inducing the misguided application of crayons. Or wrestle unruly locks into silky submission by undergoing a Control Zero treatment that works to transform frizzy hair into straight, shiny manes without the use of formaldehyde. Within the salon, sleek orange chairs pop against the clean white walls and brown counters as stylists snatch blow-dryers hanging leisurely from the ceiling.
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.
