As part of the salon team at Gretchen Scott Salon, Lena works with each client to design a style that's suited to their hair type, face shape, and personal style. She can perform both cut and color, using the naturally derived products found at this Aveda concept salon.
Inside the softly lit Bonjour Nails & SPA, a long row of plush pedicure chairs with built in baths flank one wall, and strategically lit nail stations fill the other. Patrons entering the serene space can have a seat in the cozy waiting area or peruse the racks of colorful lacquer offered in regular and long-wearing formulas before indulging in meticulous manicures and pedicures. In a private treatment room free from adolescent loiterers, skin mavens ease muscle tension with neck, shoulder, and Swedish massages, or sculpt brows into shapely arches with waxing services.
The marble-patterned side tables and gilded footbaths make Kenmore Happy Nails' pedicure chairs truly throne-like. The staff members work to make their clients feel like royalty while rendering manicures, pedicures, and other spa treatments such as waxing and eyelash extensions. They also specialize in permanent makeup, filling in lip lines and eyebrows.

Mod Skin And Body's massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians aren't the only ones who are good with their hands. Its owner actually created the repurposed barn doors that decorate the spa in their garage. They also crafted the chevron-patterned wood installation in the waiting room by hand.
The spa's rustic-chic decor includes a handcrafted pedicure bench, as well. This tufted banquette pairs with a crystal chandelier to add a dash of luxury to the pedicure station.
While indulgences for the eyes abound here, it's the spa treatments that keep clients coming back for more. These include everything from gentlemen's facials to Obagi chemical peels to makeup tutorials that use bareMinerals products.
Ti Hong, the owner head stylist of Salon de beauté, has worked in the beauty industry for more than 20 years. Formally trained at a French salon in Saigon, he later moved to Paris where he honed his craft in a boutique salon for several years. Today, at Salon de beauté, he draws upon his international training to lead a team of hairstylists, manicurists, and aestheticians who deliver everything from customized facials and microcurrent facelifts, to spiral perms and extensions made from human hair. To calm frizzy ‘dos exacerbated by humidity or a head-on collision with a Van de Graaff generator, the salon also offers keratin hair-smoothing and Japanese thermal straightening treatments, both of which smooth and soften hair for several months.
