Though sun-shaped mirrors and spiraling chandeliers abound in Soleil Salon & Spa, they pale in comparison to clients’ skin after a diamond-facial microdermabrasion. The spa’s aestheticians take their cues from the sun, brightening complexions with custom treatments that target conditions such as acne, fine lines, and inflammation. Not to be outshone, stylists illuminate hair with clear gloss and multidimensional highlights. They draw on an array of professional products from Aveda and label.m, and their commitment to innovation has led to such services as the GKhair keratin-smoothing treatment—an advanced therapy that eliminates frizz for up to five months, or roughly as long as it would take to extinguish the sun with a super soaker.
The techs behind New Beginnings Nail Salon draw on a collective 27 years experience as they primp acrylic and natural nails with tools cleansed by hospital-grade disinfectants. In addition to mani-pedis, they also offer paraffin treatments, sugar scrubs, and OPI Axxium no-chip polish for pistachio lovers. For brides-to-be and bachelorettes, they host parties with mani-pedis, champagne, and appetizers to prepare them for a fun night out or a walk down the aisle. Nail techs also pamper princesses during birthday parties that include nail designs and cake, with goodies bags for the guests to take home. In an effort to share their knowledge, New Beginnings Nail Salon offers an apprenticeship program that helps aspiring nail stylists earn their licenses through hands-on experience. They also joined the fight against cancer by holding a fundraising event featuring nail art and raffle tickets.
Helmed by 28-year beauty veteran and owner Alfredo Lamparelli, Salon Bogar provides a haven of beautifying services performed at the talented hands of stylists, skin therapists, and makeup artists. Beginning with a skin analysis by a professional pore pamperer, the glow facial gently rejuvenates lackluster epidermises with a series of brightening and tightening steps including an exfoliation, eye-and-lip treatment, and custom finishing mask. As complexions emote a refreshed, youthful glow, hands and arms will enjoy a tendon-untangling massage, preventing them from endlessly caressing newly freed faces.
Classic pedicures, shellac manicures, intricate nail art, and gentle but effective waxing services—Nicole Giorgi does it all. Inside Paul Edward Salon, the professional beautifier spruces up fingernails and toenails and evicts unwanted hair from brows, legs, and bikini lines. She joins a staff of stylists and aestheticians who dedicate themselves to their clients' wellbeing, pampering them with hair styling appointments that employ organic Eufora products. They even render facials that infuse vitamins into the skin, which is more effective than just taping Flintstone chewables on foreheads.
Though Salon Tuscany's decor is an elegant nod to the Old World—from ceramic pillars crowned with indoor plants to the heavy, gold-framed mirrors that reflect the salon's cranberry-and-gold color scheme—the hairstyles its staff produce are anything but dated. In fact, owners Rick and Dawne Guay's main mission is to provide clients with current yet affordable hairstyles.
To create modern 'dos, stylists employ products from brands such as Redken, Aquage, and Soma, as well as 100% human hair NEO extensions. Salon Tuscany's crew also aims to beautify clients with shellac manicures, which coat nails with 50+ different colors of chip-resistant polish, and with Ardell eyelash extensions. In an effort to stay connected to the community, Salon Tuscany supports charity events such as leukemia fundraisers, and it takes the time to doll-up local celebrities, including Ms. New Hampshire America 2012 contestant, Jennifer Dickson.
Redken for Men, Wella, and Kenra products, among others, get called into service at Beauty Secrets Salon. Professional hair experts use them to strengthen and style the manes of men or women. In addition to classic or trendy cuts, they use their products to curl, texture, or add waves to locks. Conversely, they can transform hair so it is as straight and colorful as frank relationship advice from your twice-removed sea-captain aunt.
Skin Perfect by Dianna's clinically trained staff resurfaces epidermises with facial treatments that specifically target the ill effects of aging and acne. The clinical aesthetician welcomes both men and women into her elegant red-accented, Bombay-decorated room, where they slather skin with GlyMed professional products—packed with certified botanicals and advanced medical ingredients—to lessen hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and blemishes. They enhance collagen and elastin production with simple facial massages, and coax thickness out of thinning hair with circulation-boosting scalp massages. Brides and bridesmaids can also stop by the space for expert makeup applications and tips for keeping the groom from eating the cake all by himself.
