At each of Tricho Salon and Spa’s four locations, trained stylists stand ready to refresh outdated hairstyles with products by Schwarzkopf, Bumble and bumble, Keratin Complex, and Moroccanoil.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.
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. With the goal of creating a tranquil space, the salon's therapists always take care to keep the lights low and schedule bagpipe practice after business hours. Almond-colored walls surround private treatment rooms, and thickly padded chairs cosset patrons as they receive pedicures. Massages, facials, and makeup applications help clients to achieve a fresh take on the day, imbuing the skin with deep-seated serenity and surface-level beauty. An on-staff plastic surgeon, Dr. Sayeg, spruces up complexions with injectables such as Botox.
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.
Top Models Salon & Boutique’s hairstyling room resembles a banquet hall: heavy drapes frame columned doors, ornate mirrors line high walls, and chandeliers sparkle overhead. In this regal setting, four nail techs, four hairstylists, and one permanent-makeup artist highlight clients' natural beauty with professional products and stadium floodlights. In addition to performing basic salon services, hairdressers can iron rhinestones to tresses or install feather extensions that withstand heat treatments about as well as natural hair. Jewelry and accessories with studs, rhinestones, and faux pearls populate the onsite boutique.
