Operating under the Caruso family for 45 years, Rometta Salon & Spa’s staff refurbishes head façades with personalized facials. During the one-hour service, a mug mender caters to unique epidermal needs with Dermalogica skincare products and works to loosen up contorted expressions frozen during youth. An intense yet gentle pore cleansing kicks off the procedure, expunging complexions of oil and blackheads. A massage of the face and upper torso then soothes away tension while stimulating oxygen-rich blood flow before masks and moisturizers swaddle the skin in rejuvenating serums designed to leave faces smoother than Barry White in a cashmere jump suit. While lying upon the service table, clients bask in the natural light spilling through floor-to-ceiling windows and the frosted glass doors bearing images of Roman spas and ancient Olympic potato-sack races. Although not included in this Groupon, the seasoned professionals at Rometta Salon & Spa also work to artfully revamp cranial canvases and digits.
Rometta Salon & Spa
In 1964, the Carusos decided to start a spa. They wanted to open it in a century-old Victorian house, but the fixer-upper definitely needed a few renovations first. For a year, the Carusos used their evenings and weekends to fashion a spa atmosphere reminiscent of ancient Roman baths. Amid chandeliers, corinthian columns, and engravings of ancient Olympic potato-sack races, stylists craft haircuts and therapists soothe muscles in private treatment rooms. Though stylists use nationally renowned products from Dermalogica and Redken during treatments, they also use styling tools patented by the Carusos themselves.
