Anew Salon & Spa's Porshia Gooch splits her well-honed skills between scalp, skin, and nails, beautifying clients with styling, foil highlights, single-process color, facials, and manicures. The rest of the staff?stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists?work within the salon?s honey-hued faux-marble walls to transform clients from scalp to toenail. They refresh drab looks with new haircuts and coloring treatments, and they slather on polish in a cozy pedicure nook outfitted with bench seating and plush pillows.
La Simpatica Salon's owner, stylist, and makeup artist, Courtney Lewis, applies her 10 years of experience beautifying celebrities and hosts for VH1, MTV, movies, and music videos to help noncelebrity clients to achieve red-carpet-worthy looks. Courtney douses patrons' manes with only the finest all-organic products culled from the tears of Mother Earth and dusts visages in mineral foundation, which blends seamlessly with natural skin tones. Before administering her signature hair services or makeup applications, Courtney consults with guests about their expectations. Those looking to pull off a specific look can bring in a photograph of the desired style or simply describe the look through a game of charades.

Bernard’s offers a modern twist on Old World luxury. Elegant sconces line the walls like vintage streetlights in the salon area, and relaxation awaits in the serenity rooms. All this is the handiwork of Elizabeth Chnapko and her daughter Maria, who opened the salon after husband and father Bernard lost a long battle with cancer. While natural light pours in through the salon’s windows, skilled stylists sculpt flattering styles and add highlights. Invigorating facials segue into indulgent mani-pedis and specialty body treatments. In preparation for a therapeutic massage, clients may also make use of spa amenities such as complimentary tea, and men’s and women’s locker rooms.
