Virtually no aesthetic concerns go unaddressed at Essentials Spa and Salon, which employs a diverse team of stylists and aestheticians as well as med-spa technicians armed with contemporary cosmetic technology. The salon staff keeps its clients looking sharp by pampering tresses with haircare products by Moroccanoil, KMS, and L'Oréal Professional, and the nail technicians augment their mani-pedis with everything from paraffin dips to agave-nectar rubs.
The massage therapists treat concerns beneath the surface by kneading overstressed muscles with a variety of soothing modalities, but the med-spa team also strives to effect deeper changes. Overseen by Dr. Michael Lesser, the technicians can employ cutting-edge equipment and products, including microdermabrasion wands, a cosmetic laser system, and clinical-strength skincare balms. These treatments collectively rejuvenate the skin while minimizing the appearance of blemishes that typically accompany aging, sun exposure, or frequent naps in a bathtub full of wet newspapers.
Though they have a brick-and-mortar shop, Elmo's Full Service Salon's stylists spend much of their time out in the community. They make convenient house calls and administer mobile makeovers at local hospitals and rehab centers. Whether on-location or within the salon, the stylists listen carefully to each client's telepathic ponytail and select the perfect combination of services. Aside from standard cuts and colors, the staff can add hair extensions, wax eyebrows, and sculpt nails during mani-pedis.
Sharon Medina appointed the neutral walls of Posh Beauty Lounge with butterflies and full-length mirrors. In the waiting area at the center of the salon, orange pillows rest on wicker furniture that plays counterpoint to ultra-modern styling chairs. Sharon leads a team of stylists inside this Paul Mitchell Focus Salon and spends her spare time working as an instructor. Her team tends to 'dos with services ranging from texture-altering body wave and keratin treatments to hair extensions. Makeup artists also adorn faces with shimmering shades and permanent makeup. The latter technique inks skin with smudge-proof hues that can be worn to bed, unlike suit of armor pajamas.
As a Paul Mitchell salon, Blowdye Salon has a reputation to live up to. Luckily, it presents a range of trendy cuts, expert coloring, and voluminous blowouts all conducted by Paul Mitchell–trained stylists. Inside the welcoming beauty hotspot, the staff attends to the locks of its diverse array of clients with products from Paul Mitchell and De Fabulous. The salon also offers the Brazilian Blowout, which tames unruly strands while simultaneously infusing them with shine, the reason nine out of ten hot rods will get a Brazilian blowout during their lifetimes.
Men, women, children, and their fashion-conscious stuffed animals flock to Hello Gorgeous Hair Studio so its three-person team, which boasts more than 60 years of combined experience, can tend to their beauty needs. In addition to haircuts, highlights, and keratin-smoothing treatments, the stylists perform mani-pedis, facials, and waxing treatments.
