The burden of aches and pains makes it impossible for humans to run as fast as cheetahs, which is why the human diet is virtually devoid of gazelle meat. Keep fast food from getting away with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of nail, facial, and massage services at Salone.
Salone beautifies and rejuvenates clients from head to toe with an array of nail, facial, and massage services. To make faces shimmer like the surface of a lake at twilight without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it, clients can opt for a relaxing 45-minute simple facial ($50) or 45-minute outer peace acne facial tailored to their skin type ($60). Nails can get ready to stroll miniature red carpets with a spa manicure ($27) or pedicure ($47), during which an expert nail tech exfoliates to whisk away slothful skin cells and slathers on a hydrating mask. A men’s foot treatment addresses boyish toe troubles ($38), and muscle muses ease aches and relieve tension with a custom full-body or reflexology massage ($35/half hour, $70/hour). As an Aveda Concept salon, Salone employs natural products derived from plant and flower essences.
Longtime stylist Elizabeth D'Acquisto opened Salone with her mother Penny and has since expanded it twice to accommodate a 14-person staff and shelves of Aveda products. The salon's staff draw on backgrounds in individual styling and aesthetics as they pamper the coiffures, skin, and nails of clients with Aveda products made from earth-culled botanicals. Whether trimming tresses, massaging away muscle aches, or waxing eyebrows to match favorite Flash Gordon villains, stylists produce sleek, professional results.
