The staff of hair stylists and make-up artists at Faces Beautiful focus on what looks best on each client. They take pride in finding the perfect style for every customer, including styling the models at Mitchells fashion shows, making it not just a haircut but an experience, striving to put the extra shine on your outside with a cut and color to create your desired look. They apply makeup for weddings and other special events, drawing on products from founder Gail Sagel's Faces Beautiful line as well as Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare, Peter Thomas Roth, and Vincent Longo.
Fringe 125 Salon does more than just cut hair; the staff's mission is to combine "creative, classic, and cutting edge styling." Inside a modern and upscale spa-like space, they achieve this not just by shortening strands, but also by curating a menu of services that includes coloring, blow-outs, and various straightening treatments. They render all of these aesthetic flourishes with a conscientious commitment to maintaining the highest eco-friendly standards possible. The salon is decorated with reclaimed wood, uses energy-efficient lighting, and favors natural hair-care lines over products that harm the environment, such as Doomsday Device brand hair dryers.
iFloat helps clients escape the weight of the world by forgetting the weight of their bodies. Inside the spa's quiet, dark chambers, clients float atop a warm epsom-salt solution that creates the illusion of weightlessness. The effect of this environment is to slow brain waves, producing vivid imagery, creative thoughts, and an epiphany about how to make square dancing slightly more popular. There are other benefits, too; sessions can reduce blood pressure, stress, and anxiety. After flotation sessions, clients can relax inside a comfortable lounge and sip complimentary tea.
Vichy showers, aromatherapy oils, and tubs filled with rose petals are just a few of the relaxing elements that wind their way through Westport Wellness Massage’s body treatments—including cocoa wraps and Sandy Beach scrubs. The decadence spills over into massage sessions, where heated lava stones join forces with flowing Swedish strokes to oust stress and tension.
