At each of Tricho Salon and Spa’s four locations, trained stylists stand ready to refresh outdated hairstyles with products by Schwarzkopf, Bumble and bumble, Keratin Complex, and Moroccanoil. Dr. Sonya Friedman, an accomplished author, CNN talk-show host, and radio psychologist, teams up with dermatologist Dr. Scott Friedman to helm the spa side of the business, where clients can find eight types of facials, nine styles of massage, noninvasive micro treatments, and advice for mending a hairdryer’s broken heart. Fingertips and toes in need of some TLC can also be pampered inside this full-service beauty haven, as nail techs doll-up digits with OPI and Essie polishes as well as Shellac, acrylic, and fiberglass tips.
Upon arrival at Agapé, guests are warmly welcomed with coffee, tea, and juice before the staff ushers you to chic treatment rooms for personalized pampering. After you talk to your aesthetician about your skin's individual issues and preferences, the 60-minute Elemental Nature facial will address them by using select Aveda products. Pores will be purged, fine lines will be fought, and complexions will be cleared, leaving your face glowing like the surface of a lake in moonlight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds frolicking in it. Then, during the brow design, Agapé's wax wielders put brows in more graceful arches or manageable swoops. Finally, facial landscape artists choose hues from their technicolor dream palette to highlight and shade visages into being with Aveda's eco-friendly makeup.
Terri Sitto called on more than 24 years of salon and business know-how to open Day Dream Nails & Spa. The facility and its specialists exhibit dedication to beautification, health, and relaxation with services such as waxing, mani-pedis, and facials. The spa can accommodate up to 15 guests for private parties, where visitors can spruce up skin and nails while munching on hors d’oeuvres, sipping adult beverages or soft drinks, and whacking a piñata filled with facial creams.
Behind Alandre Salon & Day Spa's curved, marbled reception desk, internationally trained beauticians lavish guests with cosmetic, med-spa, and salon treatments. Almond-colored walls surround private treatment rooms, and thickly padded chairs cosset patrons as they receive pedicures. Within the Alandre fold is platform artist and salon partner Rajaei Haddad. Having been the ambassador and educator for L'Oreal Paris and Shwartscoff Germany for over a decade, and the owner of a prestigious Middle East salon, he performs artistry of formal styling, precision cutting, coloring and more. Haddad specializes in updos and makeup, especially for bridal arrangements.
At locations in Franklin, West Bloomfield, Royal Oak, and most recently Birmingham, experienced aestheticians dissolve stress with soothing massages, facials, and nail treatments that utilize fruit-infused scrubs or oils from Sacred Earth Botanicals. Inside private treatment rooms, techs evict toxins with Dead Sea mud or seaweed body wraps and knead knots into untied shoelaces with aromatherapy massages or therapeutic stretches. Treatments, including a slate of mani-pedis, come in various packages for half-day pampering sessions, with tasty add-ons such as a spa lunch or bubbly sips of champagne. Alternatively, the spa's concierge services take the pampering out of the spa and into the shells of stressed turtles or homes of customers, who may also request assistance with errands, laundry, and grocery pick-up.
Patrons' extremities are the shining stars inside Kris Tall f/x Make Up & Nail Studio, where a fleet of nail technicians covers fingernails and toenails with long-lasting Shellac polish and acrylics. They also festoon keratin sheets with decorative polka dots or zebra stripes. Nails share a bit of the spotlight with faces when beauty pros gives mugs a makeover fit for a wedding day or a Dolly Parton look-alike contest.
