Although the treatments they perform have evolved with technology, Gooding Skin System's aestheticians maintain the quality level of products and services that has kept them in business for more than 30 years. The staff strives to bring out the best in each customer, whether enhancing complexions with a peel, buffing nails with a manicure, or pulling magic scarves out of bellybuttons. They bolster skincare regimens with products from Murad, SkinCeuticals, Guinot Paris, and Sothys, and can tailor at-home routines for clients hoping to keep their faces glowing after a treatment.

An Aveda salon, Purity Hair Design boasts a trained staff that attends to clients’ beauty needs with a comprehensive list of nail and hair services. Customers undergoing dramatic cuts or quick bang trims settle into lime-green salon chairs, where Aveda’s line of plant-based products nourish strands beneath the glow of hanging lamps. At the makeup station, aestheticians enhance natural beauty or hide natural gills by sweeping on Beyond Minerals products. Nail technicians invigorate toes with the seasonal pedicures’ rotating list of ingredients and top nails with Shellac gel for up to two weeks of chip-free color.

24 S Main St
Voorheesville,

Like any good teacher, style director and salon owner Shelley Hutchinson believes you are never done learning. Her 14 years as a cosmetologist have led her to oversee a staff of hairstylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists, all of whom continue to hone their skills through educational seminars. As they absorb new techniques, they graduate on a track from apprentice to senior stylist, having chosen a major in either scissor biology or beehive keeping. Shelley herself attends international trade shows to keep up with the world's aesthetic tastes, adapting her knowledge of cuts and colors to make the most of the salon's partnership with Goldwell.

Inside Shelley's beautification venue, sunlight illuminates fixtures inspired by the natural world. Potted trees, floral arrangements, and bamboo window shades complement the earth-toned walls of private spa and public styling areas. The services also draw from nature: guests can warm their feet during the Tranquil Earth pedicure featuring hot rocks, or they can nourish their features with an enzyme peel's pineapple and papaya extracts.

2 Greenbush Ave
East Greenbush,

During stints as Paul Mitchell national artists, stylists Maureen and Manolo have shared their creative talents and up-to-date techniques with salons across the country. Today, the duo bestows its extensive wisdom upon its team at Innovations NY Hair Salon, which kicks off every haircut with the salon's trademark five-point consultation. This discussion of clients' goals, challenges, and limitations lets stylists engineer custom haircare plans before ever lifting a pair of scissors or donning a breastplate woven from bobby pins. Bolstered by an arsenal of top-notch Paul Mitchell products—including the Awapuhi product line, made from ginger grown at a solar-powered Hawaiian farm—the crew oversees a full slate of salon services. Vibrant lime-green walls surround them as they color and groom men's and women's tresses, and cleanse skin with facials.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles. Personal spa assistants are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment.

At New Attitudes Salon, talented stylists and aestheticians pamper clients with a spectrum of hair, skin, and body treatments. To keep hairdos in line and up to date, a CHI master educator can glide her scissors through locks or apply a flattering, ammonia-free color. Facials employ potent ingredients such as volcanic ash and glycolic acid to tighten pores and even out tone, and body scrubs refresh below-chin skin with mixtures of sea salt and organic essential oils. Treatment rooms fill with therapeutic scents of vanilla, lavender, and peppermint during spa appointments, ensuring clients leave with minds as calm as the audience at a snail race.
