Guests at Fresco Salon plop into cushioned spa-pedicure stations or styling chairs in a bright, open studio and bask in the attentions of skilled aestheticians. Feet can request a pour of lemongrass and green tea or mango and mandarin sea-salt soaks, which lessen swelling in feet while instantly turning everyday socks into drawer sachets. Nail technicians buff gams with an exfoliating scrub before tending to tense leg and foot muscles with a hot-rock massage and sealing in moisture with a Spa Organics mask. Nail nurturers then focus on fingers, trimming cuticles and massaging hands in warm oil before coating them in a color or french polish. Coats of Opi or Orly polish in solid hues or French-style tips cap off the one-hour pampering session.
Alternatively, limp tresses unwilling to twirl around fingers, let alone fulfill social obligations, regain vigor after a deep-conditioning treatment using organic Tigi products. Skilled stylists snip strands and intensify existing colors with highlights or lowlights, leading friends to believe that the new look is a natural result of the sun, moon, or ascendant zodiac sign.
Though Fresco Salon sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Fresco Salon’s five-person team ranges from stylist Desiree, who stays abreast of the latest looks through continuing education, to cosmetologist Candy, who earned the nickname with her sweet disposition. The staff members' diversity reflects their diverse services. Desiree tends locks with custom trims and coloring tailored to clients’ face shapes, aided by products such as Bed Head Superstar or Curls Rock. Cosmetologists, meanwhile, wax away unwanted hair or tend skin with soothing products from brands such as Chi Organics Olive Nutrient Therapy, a botanical-filled line infused with essential oils and olive ingredients. Armed with a full spectrum of polish colors from OPI, Orly, and a bottle of melted Skittles, the two nail techs can paint natural nails or acrylics with vibrant hues.
