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.
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 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.
Technicians at Clearly Beautiful Nails use the 1064 Yag Laser to painlessly rid feet of infections, warts, and nail fungus. In addition to treating toes, the office rents and sells laser units and also creates foot-centered marketing materials for display in waiting rooms.
Hair’s the Thing keeps its boutique and crew of seasoned salon pros small in order to treat comatose countenances one on one using top-shelf products. During the 75 indulgent minutes of the custom facial and oxygenating treatment, an adept aesthetician tailors skin-resuscitation tactics according to your skin type and high-school band instrument, then cleanses crumpled face wrappers and smoothes out crinkles with sheen-imparting exfoliation and nourishing salves. Once your peel has been primed, an oxygenating treatment circulates fresh oxygen molecules below the surface of the skin, restoring a lustrous patina to facescapes gridlocked with gunk and cinder-blocked jalopies.
