Highly trained aestheticians, nail artists, and stylists staff Shananigin's Salon & Spa, a new addition to the local pampering scene. They take pride in treating bodies with premium products, such as Pevonia, a natural skincare line. They extend this same attention to quality to their services, adding soothing mini massages to their spa manicures and filling blow dryers with hot air imported from Tahiti.
La Prestiges Salon and Spa combines s8alon and spa services under one roof to save clients from wasting gas driving all over town for their aesthetic and relaxation needs. A one-stop pampering shop, the salon and spa houses a staff of beauty professionals who reshape shaggy hairstyles or craft complete makeovers using Paul Mitchell products along with their very own comb and scissor savvy. The aestheticians can treat skin with pumpkin, chocolate, or vitamin-C facials and set skin aglow with spray tans. Nail technicians dazzle hands and feet with mani-pedis and tiny, breathtaking nail designs, whereas makeup artists enhance the natural beauty of facial features with skilled cosmetics application and optional helmet-mounted spotlights. Meanwhile, laser techs use laser light to remove unwanted hair from the face, arms, and legs.
Experienced stylist and cosmetologist Kelly Holbrook founded Simply Divine Beauty Lounge in 2008. Since then, she has welcomed visitors into a world of haircare treatments, soothing massages, and stylish manicures. The women working behind the scissors draw from a wealth of experiences and training, from Kelly Holbrook's childhood trips to the salon with her mother and grandmother, to extensive practices in energy therapy, reiki, and hot-stone massage—with 100% of the hot stones reporting feeling less tense after their massages. These expertly trained technicians pour out products from Dermalogica, Goldwell, and Bioelements to transform a part of their clients' appearance. They render eye-catching updos, oxygenating facials, Swedish massages, and nail treatments.
The staff also welcomes guests to wait for their services in comfort. The lounge’s refined interior features black leather furnishing, cream-colored walls, and WiFi.
Amid Tip Top Nails' bright-green walls and leafy plants, trained staffers perch at more than six stations to perform traditional manicures and pedicures along with elaborate acrylics. They are also wise to the ways of durable Shellac polish, body waxes, and synthetic eyelash extensions.
Dawna Brisebois of Pioneer Valley Electrolysis debunks the myth that all hair-removal techniques are created equal. Plucking, tweezing, and waxing can cause hair to grow back even thicker than before, and lasers only target dark pigments—these methods may be less effective on blonde, grey, and red hair colors. But electrolysis puts an end to unwanted hair. The precise treatment targets each individual follicle with a quick pulse of energy that puts an end to regrowth, and is safe and effective for all skin and hair types.
