Named the best hair salon by Worcester Mag for the second year in a row, Jeffrey Robert Salon's digit technicians pamper and beautify hands and feet with uncanny expertise. During each half-hour manicure, palm-prod mavens trim cuticles, buff nails, and massage palms with moisturizing lotion to reward hands for building a coffee table out of Play-Doh. The salon's 45-minute pedicure includes a foot massage and hydrating lotion, as well as toenail trimming, filing, and shaping. Jeffrey Robert Salon carries several OPI nail-polish collections, such as the Texas, Katy Perry, and Burlesque lines, allowing patrons to sport dazzling hands without gluing on confetti.
Chi Hair Design's staff spotlights each client's natural beauty with equally natural products. Staff members strive to administer their hair, nail, skin, and cosmetic treatments with beauty-enhancing concoctions—such as plant-based glosses, henna hair colors, and talc-free mineral makeup—that are mostly comprised of organic materials. The team refuses to use products that contain formaldehyde, ammonia, or molten lava.
Soft overhead lighting refracts off the salon's hardwood floors, and massive decorative fans hang as a green-and-white contrast to the taupe walls. To complement the efforts of the beautifying team, resident disc and video jockey Matthew Andrews can showcase his music-mixing skills at weddings and parties.
Though the enclosed porch might fool visitors into thinking they're entering a family home rather than a salon, Bauhous soon flashes its cutting-edge style credentials by showing off such contemporary treatments as Brazilian blowouts and Bio Ionic hair straightening. In front of a single long mirror that stretches across multiple stations, stylists brandish high-end products from Rusk, Paul Mitchell, Iso, and Chi, which lend luster to locks without the neck strain associated with gold-plated doo-rags. Bauhous’s staff also ousts unwanted fuzz from brows, bikini lines, backs, and legs with body and facial waxing
Adesso Salon & Day Spa’s facility invokes the comforts of an elegant home. In the waiting room, an iconic Marilyn Monroe print presides over a cozy fireplace. In the hairstyling room, light pours in through sprawling bay windows as the team creates classic or trendy looks under sparkling chandeliers. Staffers pamper clients with facials, manicures, and pedicures. They also banish unwanted hair with waxing, threading, and laser hair-removal services, in which they extract the laser beams pointing out from your scalp—something robots simply call hair.
