Whether they're designing new hairstyles or clarifying skin, the team at Capricio Salon and Spa relies on top-shelf salon and spa products. Redken, Davines, Moroccanoil, and Brazilian Blowout are a few of the name-brand products staffers sprinkle over clients during their signature hair services, such as cuts, color treatments, and formal updos. When performing skin treatments, they use Dermalogica products, which omit common irritants, such as lanolin, alcohol, and artificial colors.
Longtime stylist Elizabeth D'Acquisto opened Salone with her mother Penny and has since expanded it twice to accommodate a 14-person staff and shelves of Aveda products. The salon's staff draw on backgrounds in individual styling and aesthetics as they pamper the coiffures, skin, and nails of clients with Aveda products made from earth-culled botanicals. Whether trimming tresses, massaging away muscle aches, or waxing eyebrows to match favorite Flash Gordon villains, stylists produce sleek, professional results.
Karma: A Relaxation Spa believes in the restorative power of relaxation, administered by a skilled staff of therapists and care-bringers. Toxic-toed clients may wish to opt for a Minx pedicure, which begins with a thorough filing, trimming, and shaping of toenails and cuticles before feet are exfoliated to remove dirt and candy wrappers clogging pores. Individual Minx nails are then applied to each finger in your choice of fashionable colors and patterns, with a massage of the feet and legs rubbing stress from the rainbow-bright bike peddlers.
