At Hot Heads Salon, “Keep It Up!” isn’t a motivational phrase. It’s the name of the root re-touch treatment, a title that’s exemplary of Hot Heads’ Salon cheeky service menu. Stylists, including the mother-daughter duo that runs the salon, cut locks but do not blow-dry them during “Shape Up…Ship Out!” sessions and straighten ringlets with “I Hate Curl” straightening treatments. Aside from hair services—which also include highlights, Brazilian blowouts, perms, and conditioning treatments—they also perform waxing and manicures.
Dr. Rita Sabeti opened her clinic to smooth the skin's flaws and boost clients' confidence with minimally invasive, medical-grade cosmetic treatments. Experienced aestheticians wield the handheld Candela GentleMax laser, whose multiple wavelengths target a variety of skin issues while a built-in cooling mist keeps patients comfortable and office plants hydrated. Weight-loss experts help clients to leave behind extra pounds with advanced hormone therapies.
At the beginning of each 90-minute treatment, a skin assessment is performed to determine each individual's facial needs. After the customized mélange of skincare products sets to work, the energy-relaxation regimen begins. Using the techniques of Reiki—a practice said to relax the body and mind and release the stresses of daily life—level II practitioner Sarah Gordon acts as a guide for the Chakra's healing energies. With the energy flowing, customers are gently massaged, soothing the neck, shoulders, décolleté, scalp, arms, hands, and feet. The foot massage combines energy-stimulation and reflexology techniques to invigorate the whole body.
