At Eden Salon & Spa, guests sip on drafts of water, coffee, or tea as they wait to meet with stylists to shape their hair, skin, or nails into a new, revitalizing look. Along with hairstyling and color treatments such as highlights or eyebrow tints, the staff specializes in a full suite of mani-pedi services, from applying acrylics to coating fingernails or toe hubcaps with chip-resistant Shellac polish.
Since founding her refuge of beauty in 1994, owner Amy Russin has amassed a staff of experienced stylists and aestheticians skilled in a variety of beautifying treatments. The menu emphasizes updo upgrades, but extends its aesthetic umbrella to include facial skincare, massage treatments, and manicure services. The glamorous gunslingers strap on bandoliers of products such as OPI, American Crew, Dermalogica, and Pureology to treat hair and hide, and other specialties include body wraps, waxing, and makeup application.
Eva Day Spa's team of aestheticians, massage therapists, and hairstylists harnesses the nourishing power of Aveda and Full Spectrum products to beautify each visitor who walks through the door. Victorian-inspired armchairs nestle awaiting clients before stylists usher them before the ornate mirrors decking each salon station. There, they harness scissors and curling irons to transform coifs through a range of cut and color treatments. Seven types of facials and peels resurface skin with wholesome botanicals, and massage and body treatments leave statures more polished than the catwalk at a slipper fashion show.
Maria Guasta started cosmetology school in her junior year of high school and earned her license before she even graduated. When she turned 23, she bought Savage Hair International and devised her own training program for the stylists she hired, sculpting manes for Broadway productions and New York Fashion Week in the meantime. Two decades later, this style prodigy turned beauty-industry veteran continues to develop her salon and personally train each of her stylists, equipping them with products by Schwarzkopf and MoroccanOil. In her spare time, she spreads her instructional talents beyond her salon's walls as an educator with the Rusk creative team, teaching other stylists how to forge stylish haircuts without actually lowering their clients' ears.
As owner of The Beauty Studio, Elizabeth wears many hats. She's a state-licensed aesthetician and nail technician, is certified in medical aesthetics and micropigmentology, and can braid hair with one finger. In the comfort of her cozy beauty studio, clients can draw on her 15 years of experience with an invigorating facial, shea-butter wrap, or anti-aging exfoliation treatment. The spa can also promote eye appeal with lash extensions or nix unflattering hair from the brows and body with a specialty waxing session.
