Salone Estetica is home to a team of professional nail technicians, massage therapists, stylists, and aestheticians. With so many specialized individuals on staff, the salon has quickly become a one-stop shop for custom skin, hair, and body treatments.
A triple-threat aesthetic master with certifications in electrolysis, aesthetics, and lasers, Luann at Spa Associates disables hair growth with high-tech gadgetry and resurfaces skin with potent botanical enzymes. Calling upon her training from Catherine Hinds lnstitute of Esthetics, she scrutinizes skin and develops personalized treatment plans that address issues related to aging. Luann diminishes wrinkles with masks and microdermabrasion treatments, softening the appearance of crow's feet, which develop into eagle talons if left unaddressed.
Monochromatic manes brighten up with foil highlights under the trained hands of Salon Rosina's stylists. The team also cuts hair on men, women, children, and chia pets and twists locks into chic updos. Pin-straight hair finds body during the salon's perms, and unruly strands calm down with a relaxer.
Voted Best of Citysearch in 2007 and 2008, Le Mani Day Spa’s award-winning face whisperers coax out radiance with custom skin treatments. Each 80-minute microdermabrasion facial begins with a personalized skin-type analysis, as technicians measure metrics including basic skin type before crafting a custom treatment regimen. Microdermabrasion buffs away dead skin cells and clingy luchador masks using tiny crystal jets, revealing fresher, younger layers of skin lurking under the surface. Along the way, steam treatments ease open pores, making way for the spa’s specialty serums to revitalize dry patches and protect surfaces from the summer sun’s wilting glare. A custom mask and moisturizer slake skin’s thirst, hydrating cells more easily than attempts to drink from the sprinkler.
The front windows of Elan Salon Inc. reflect a quintessential New England scene—brick sidewalks, old-fashioned lampposts, and shingled Victorian houses lining a winding street near Wedge Pond. Inside, however, the salon recalls some idealized desert vista—huge, brushy potted bushes span a twilight-colored wall, and minimalistic styling stations inhabit a vast expanse of light hardwood. Services are a mix of classic techniques and modern trends, including balayage highlights (applied freehand rather than with foils or a spray gun), keratin straightening, and Shellac polish.
