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.
Staff at Carleen's A Hair Retreat beautifies hair, hands, and feet with soothing services in a relaxing atmosphere. Upon guests' arrival, stylists present a complimentary beverage to facilitate each consultation and toast the imminent demise of split ends. Using Paul Mitchell and Goldwell products, color experts overhaul 'dos with full-length foils or a set of ombre highlights that, like a chameleon standing upright in a black-and-tan, changes color from top to bottom. The salon evokes a tranquil and elegant vibe created by a marble-topped reception desk, spacious leather chairs, and floral accents.
Black-and-white checked floors and matching salon chairs beckon clients inside Executive Cuts, where experienced stylists and barbers cut and coif hair with professional Redken products. Along with stylish cuts and color services, the artful stylists eradicate frizz with natural, chemical-free keratin that leaves hair smoother than a baby’s bottom incisor. Though they generally require Groupon clients to book appointments, the salon team typically welcomes walk-ins throughout the week.
At Hair Loss Control Clinic Albany, one of 140 Hair Loss Control Clinic locations in 28 countries, certified consultants offer noninvasive treatments for hair loss. The company's team of directors, a group of medical doctors and homeopathic experts, utilizes a multi-pronged approach combining scalp hygiene, laser therapy, and topical products.
Since 1987, the clinical team has been seeking out the latest FDA-approved products and research from the United States, Europe, and Canada. During laser-treatment programs they employ handheld, hooded-laser, or tri-panel units with up to 135 diodes for maximum coverage. The medical personnel also developed HLCC Scripts topical products with ingredients that inhibit dihydrotestosterone, the hormone that is often responsible for hair loss or mispronunciation of a hormone on live television. The crew also puts the laser technology to use in laser hairbrushes and other equipment.
When the licensed techs at Sidneys Hair Salon sculpt new hairdos, they reach for nourishing products by Paul Mitchell. While some stylists tint locks with Paul Mitchell color, others twist, curl, and pin tresses up for weddings and proms. Manicurists doll up digits on both hands and feet with comprehensive mani-pedis, and technicians wax unwanted hair. The salon also keeps its boutique area stocked with handbags and jewelry that are sophisticated enough to know the difference between a soupspoon and dessertspoon.
[[m:####Ando Salon Ando Salon maintains the kind of friendly environment that welcomes walk-ins, although you might want to plan ahead for an appointment with owner Tony. The sought-after stylist and his crew stay busy keeping pace with trends such as ombre highlights, and by acquiring new products such as celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo's line. They indulge their taste for high fashion at monthly Troy Night Out arts events, where their models have worked edgy blowouts inspired by the '80s alongside modern interpretations of pinup glamour. For everyday wear, MoroccanOil products and re-texturing treatments such as Simply Smooth Keratin create sleek, manageable locks, and Wella hair color gives shimmering depth to natural color. Hudson Valley Community College students can cross the street for discounted hair service for their hard-working craniums but will pay full price on nailcare until fingers and toes can earn class credit by showing consistent growth.m]]
