A rainbow wall of haircare products from Aveda, Moroccan Oil, Matrix, and Bed Head fills the sunny storefront of Rosci Salon Da' Spa. Inside, stylists rely on these crèmes to fashion three types of wave perms or conceal salt-and-pepper coifs with liquid chroma. Continuing education classes have trained their nimble fingers, which channel both men and women's styles and weave in silky human hair extensions with durable nylon bonds. In private treatment chambers, beds support bodies during eight therapeutic and relaxation massages, and Bioelements blending labs put fragrance- and color-free tonics at aestheticians' fingertips to mix into facials for every skin type. OPI polish slicks natural nails and acrylics in high-gloss color, and Jane Iredale makeup protects skin from air pollutants and UV-rays while fooling facial detection software in red-light runner cameras.:m]]
Though a staff of more than 25 people swarms around Bella Salon & Spa’s 4,000-square-foot space, the services they perform are always personal. A smile, a wink, and an individual style consultation always greet salon-goers at the outset, before a savvy stylist—armed with Bumble and bumble and L’Oreal Paris products—primps strands with Balmain extensions, ombre highlights, and Brazilian Blowouts.
Elsewhere in the wood accented two-story shop, dedicated aestheticians can be found beautifying bodies with Nufree wax and Dermalogica skincare products. Facials hinge on customizable serums that can combat a range of skin issues, including sun damage, teen acne, clogged pores, and atrophied dimples.
