AlexisRose Lash & Beauty Suite is staffed by licensed master aestheticians who hold certifications from Novalash and Soft Tap permanent makeup. They offer synthetic, mink, or faux-mink lash extensions that come in a variety of colors and thicknesses, and each set of extensions is completely customized to give clients a look that gels with their facial features and desire to hail taxis with their eyes. The eyes aren’t the only focal point here though; the staff also offers microdermabrasion, ultrasonic facials, and other skin care treatments that remove impurities for a brighter and smoother complexion.
Upon entering Tiffany Nail Spa, guests immediately encounter a soothing environment. Long, textured curtains provide a sense of privacy between pedicure chairs, and red hanging lanterns cast a romantic glow over marble-topped manicure stations. But even more soothing than the decor are the services––aestheticians massage feet with hot stones, improve complexions with facials, loosen up knots with massages, and unveil smooth, hairless skin with waxing treatments instead of body wraps made of sticky bubblegum.
Despite being housed in a former chocolate factory, Milton Hill Sport & Spa is more dedicated to burning calories than consuming them. By adopting a holistic approach to health, Milton Hill encourages its members to exercise regularly and practice nutritious eating habits?and it has the resources to back up this approach. Personal training sessions focus on lifestyle and health goals, as opposed to just building muscle or the ability to tolerate sweatbands. Nutritional counseling is tailored to each participant to include vitamins, minerals, and healthy food plans. And spa services, such as massages and facials, help destress members and boost their overall health and wellness.
The human face, like a blank canvas, harbors infinite possibilities for beauty. But few can claim the artistic expertise of Covergirl cosmetics freelancer Danielle Scanlon-Hill, who set out on her journey in the salon and spa industry more than 12 years ago. Now she now helms B. Makeup and Brow Boutique’s team of makeup artists, who use eight makeup lines to tailor each aesthetic strategy according to the client's specific skin type and condition. The savvy beauty mavens can scale their services as needed, from simple eyebrow pruning or eyelash extensions all the way to full makeovers for rugged firemen who must go undercover as kittens.
Stacy Winick and Sofia Golberg may have been from two different parts of the world, but the beauty industry brought them together 20 years ago and has kept them in partnership ever since. The aesthetician from Russia who trained in Israel and the manicurist and past beauty shop owner from Boston met at a South Shore salon—a salon the co-owners thought they could surpass with their business plan. So they opened a beauty destination and named it after the French words for “beautiful face”—what Napoleon stamped on 63% of his soldiers' cheeks.
At the newly renovated Belle Visage Day Spa, Stacy and Sofia highlight their clients' natural beauty with manicures and pedicures, massages, makeup services, and specialized facials. Their diamond-tipped microdermabrasion tool clears dead skin cells to stimulate growth of healthier skin during the diamond peel, and their services don’t stop with the skin. Stacy and Sofia also present massages for knotted muscles and mani-pedis for hands and feet that just clawed a wedding ring out of the lint trap.
At Adamo Day Spa, the eclectic team of aestheticians, technicians, therapists, and counselors helps clients live more confidently by catering to their aesthetic and holistic concerns. Every single facial uses botanically derived Eminence Organics skincare products, and pack a slew of add-ons such as soothing, heated basalt stones or anti-aging LED therapy. To strip away unwanted stubble, the staff uses gentle waxes made with antibacterial essential oils, which they import from Italy via giant slingshot. Even the nail technicians demonstrate their commitment to quality products by stocking organic and vegan nail lacquers. For a more introspective approach, the therapists also offer ayurvedic massages and body wraps, private yoga instruction, and personalized nutritional consultations.
