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.
Stylists at Bliss Salon & Boutique can do more than cut and color hair–they can give their clients more of it. Great Lengths hair extensions transform modish bobs into sultry tresses in the space of a single appointment. Stylists treat existing strands to Goldwell color and Moroccanoil conditioners, groom and polish nails, and use wax to sculpt brows and life-size statues of clients. Their attention to fashion can be seen in the elegant black and white decor of the salon, accompanied by a definition of the word “bliss” illumined by a crystal chandelier.
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.
Rather than false lashes or implants, Simply Lashes' certified stylist, Lori Manny, applies Xtreme Lashes extensions to a single eyelash at a time. Despite being Lori's signature treatment, creating elegant, natural-looking lashes only skims the surface of her available services. A skincare specialist for more than 10 years, she treats epidermises with Dermalogica products during custom facials that can diminish signs of aging or acne. She likewise enriches skin by administering pore-unclogging chemical peels, waxing away unwanted body hair, and applying makeup that ranges from subtle to Blue Man Group impersonator.
