At Shelly’s Salon & Spa, professional stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists swaddle men, women, and young adults in fully custom salon and spa treatments. Before dousing hair wearers with Redken 5th Avenue products and up-to-date techniques born of continuing education, the skilled mane mavens consult with clients to decide on optimally chic looks based on face shape, hair type, and favorite style of powdered wig. Similarly, aestheticians examine skin prior to body wraps and custom facials and diagnose a regimen of cleansers and procedures specifically for each individual. Massage therapists take care to deliver tailored strokes as they seek out hidden tension pockets and tightly knotted tendons across corporeal landscapes.
Debbie Markiewicz, owner of Tranquility Skin Spa, believes that everyone deserves to be pampered, which is why her treatments always cost less than $100. Though the prices remain low on each service, the technicians never skimp on quality. Aestheticians blend natural fruit acids and enzymes for chemical peels and combine antiseptic and anti-inflammatory ingredients into acne facials. Throughout each treatment, the beauty pros educate clients about the benefits of proper skincare.
Though the 600-square-foot boutique spa is modest, the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. Complimentary snacks and tea are always on hand for clients to enjoy as they await treatment.
The versatile stylists at Savarino Salon handle all hair-beautifying needs. Besides soothing scalp treatments, they take cuts and styles to the next level with blow-dry or flat-iron finishes, in addition to highlights and other coloring services. But no matter what the service is, each stylist employs high-end products from brands such as Rusk and Aquage.
Amid a regal purple and gold interior, stylists at Couture Salon & Spa pamper patrons with a sweeping selection of prettifying services bolstered by opulent products. Kick off look overhauls with a haircut and style ($45+ for women, $20+ for men), or recast hair colors to better match the aurora borealis with a single-process hair dye ($50). For unfixable fringe, wax wielders artfully shape overgrown brows ($13) and completely nix undesirable fuzz from the lips ($11), chin ($11), or bikini line ($35). The salon’s trio of facials ($40–$65) highlights visages formerly enshrouded by overgrown hair, and false eyelashes ($10) and makeup applications ($45) add a look-at-me finish without the hassle of self-pasting and rolling in a bathtub full of glitter. Clients lounge in black leather treatment thrones while gazing at a golden-swirled wall mural. The salon also stocks a spread of take-home products including O.P.I., Schwarzkopf, and Pureology to extend the life of new looks.
Though Allure's taupe walls and elegant furniture evoke bygone glamour, the cosmetic treatments offered by its staff champion futuristic techniques. With the guidance of medical director Rodney Berger, MD, injector Rea Lorence banishes wrinkles with Botox and facial filler injections, while other experienced techs wield hair-banishing and skin-correcting lasers and individually tailor facial services to address skin imperfections like blemishes or milk mustaches. Laser skin treatments are offered and banish hair from bodily areas and fade unwanted tattoos from sight.
