Their hairstylists brandish products by Moroccanoil, L'Oréal, and CHI with such panache that Amici even offers an an intern training program for up-and-coming talent. Under the supervision of a master stylist, technician, or the watchful owls who hide out in updos, interns hone their pampering skills on willing clients, who receive a discounted rate for being such sports.

At The Skin Atelier at Les Images, the staff members rely on botanical products scientifically formulated to nourish skin and treat conditions such as acne, sun spots, and wrinkles. Each compound they use is free of parabens and harsh chemicals and can be customized for the client.

In addition to skincare, The Skin Atelier also provides hair services and mani-pedis that technicians execute in private treatment rooms.
In owner Anthony Lombardi's own words, Anthony Robert Salon creates an "open and airy home, where a family [can] ... bring beauty, ease and calm into people’s lives." This family is made up of a team of stylists who trim hair, add new hues with single-process color, lengthen strands with fusion extensions, and tame frizz with relaxers. To keep tresses looking strong and smooth between appointments, the salon uses Ecru New York and Italian imported Rica haircare products.
