Fall Skincare in Albuquerque

Fall has made its way to Albuquerque, and finally the temperatures reflect it! Now is the time to really amp up your skin care regimen. Why you ask? Well our southwestern sun, which gives off the most amazing sunsets, is not nearly as harsh as we go into fall and winter. This makes for the premium time to enter into a series of resurfacing treatments (chemical peels) stimulating collagen, elasticity, & cell renewal. A series of 6 treatments is ideal for optimal results, & reversal of damage from free radicals.

These treatments are like my facials completely customizable, for both women & men, to fit your needs and wants. Safely working you to higher treatment levels, more aggressive resurfacing, and enhancements. Most of our chemical peels are aloe based, synergistically designed that there is no down time, and minimal peeling.

As with any facial treatment you would still avoid sun exposure, especially the 7 days after your treatment, follow the at home regimen that is included with your treatment for post care, and wear spf religiously. The day of your treatment you’d want to avoid sweating, steam, and exercise. Being careful not to re-stimulate the active ingredients in your peel.

Don’t hesitate if your looking in the mirror, and see fine lines that weren’t there before, acne that hormonal changes have escalated, or your missing that fresh glow. You don’t have to settle, changes are visible after even just one treatment!

Call (505)292-5905 today and schedule your complimentary skin consultation with our Licensed Esthetician Sandra!

Quick Tips to Change your Look Instantly

We all get bored, with our routine, with our food, with our appearance. Change is good, it’s refreshing, it’s motivating. Here are a few Quick tips to help you Change your Look Instantly…

Extreme partings is the hair trend of the season, so if you’re not pulling that look off now, try it. Parting your hair this way will give your look an edge you might not of had before. Try changing up your normal part line. This simple change can give your hair an extra lift out of the norm.

Change it up with your makeup. Fill in those brows, just a few strokes with a brow pencil will instantly frame your eyes and make them stand out in a way they never have before. It’s all about full brows this season.

Intensify your hairs natural texture with Enjoy Curl Enhancing Spray or Aquage Sea Salt Spray. Bohemian waves will continue to trend through the winter. If you are “blessed” with straight hair like myself than use a hot tool to add a subtle bend to the middle of your hair.  When using a hot tool always be sure you apply a thermal protectant to your hair.

Add a pop of color to your lips, this will give your features a finished look and added appeal. The colder months bring with it the cool, deep tones that we tend to avoid during the warmer months. However, this season adds a color that is normally highlighted in the summer. Hot Pink will be present in all its vibrant brilliance!

Want something more drastic, call our salon & schedule your complimentary consultation. Nothing shakes up your look better than a new cut or color, by some of Albuquerque’s master stylists & hair artists!


Best Pedicures in Albuquerque

Neilmarie Salon offers the best pedicures in Albuquerque. You won’t want to pass on this luxurious experience offered by us.  An hour of pampering, with rose petals in a warm salt bath soak to relax your feet, followed by a gentle foot scrub which smells wonderful and makes your feet like new!CND

No skimping on the quality of the products we use either!  The callus remover for the heals is unbelievably effective, your sure to be pleasantly surprised.  Cuticle oil for maintenance and prevention of over grown cuticles, & lotion for my favorite part of the pedicure, the feet and leg massage.  The finished look is a beautiful application of your choice of Polish, CND Vinylux, CND Shellac Gel Polish, or the latest fashion trend Acrygel.

We’re not only known for the quality of our service, but also for our cleanliness.  Sanitation is very important at Neilmarie Salon, our tools are always properly sterilized after and before every pedicure service.  You assume that would be the case with every place that offers a pedicure service, however, sadly you would be mistaken.  Our files & buffers are used only once, and all of our pedicure baths are lined before every service and then discarded after your service, so your toes are the only toes to soak in that water & you’re sure to be safe from getting any unfavorable conditions such as funguses, etc.Best pedicures in Albuquerque

If you’re wondering why this is such an important service, well we are all guilty of being hard on our feet. Sandals, flip-flops, or like I often am…barefooted, leaves feet more exposed to environmental effects such as calluses, dry cracking skin, and other unfavorable conditions.  Also because of the industry I work in I am on my feet most of the day, and if you are as well then if you don’t take care of them it could result in more than just sore feet you could escalate to knee & back issues.  Giving your feet time and attention isn’t just about having attractive feet, though that is important and a plus, but it’s about taking care of ourselves!

Still wondering why Neilmarie Salon offers the Best Pedicures in Albuquerque, just know that our complete focus is “All About You!”  Our atmosphere is “All About You”, our cleanliness is “All About You”, & most importantly our customer service is “All About You”

Pedicures aren’t just a summer service, be sure to treat yourself during the winter as well.  Your feet will thank you & “You Deserve It”

Give us a call at 292-5905 or walk in.  We are ready to provide you with a luxurious experience!

Salon Services for Men

Just for Men

The norm for men is to seek out the local Barber and go in for a quick clean up some “Man” talk and be on your way.  However, Salon’s offer that little extra connection, a woman’s touch if you will.

All jokes aside, there is a lot more to offer in Men’s services then just a Hair cut.  But even our hair cuts provide an extra touch.  We sit you down for a consultation; really find out what you’re looking for in a cut, not just a “template” of a cut, but one that will solicit your own personal style!  Once the consultation is accomplished our Artistic Stylist will depending on the cut either Shampoo you or begin the cut.  After the main cut, if there is a neckline to be trimmed our stylist will escort her client to the shampoo bowl where he will receive a Shampoo and a clean razor to the neckline.  Not only do you receive a clean, fresh look, but an amazing Scalp Massage!

More Hair Services, would include Color, no one says it is only for the Women Clientele.  Men are allowed to want to change the color of their hair.  Most times Men just want a subtle change, whether to add lighter colors where the Shoe Shine method would be used, or to camouflage grey with our Grey Blending technique. 

If Thinning Hair is an issue and you have 30 minutes available in your day then we have a service for you!  Schedule a Scalp Treatment that can only be done by a licensed Cosmetologist.  Our Scalp Treatment is an advanced scalp care dermabrasion from Nioxin that regenerates and revitalizes scalp skin with proven results.

While you’re getting your hair and scalp healthy and trimmed, you don’t want to forget about your face.  With frequent shaving the skin on your face where you shave will often be exfoliated, and smooth.  Because of this Men actually need Facials more than Women, with only some parts exfoliated; the only way to even skin is with a professional Skin Cleanse.

At Neilmarie Salon we understand that for our Male Clientele time is in high demand, and even if you do have the time you don’t want to spend it at the Salon!  So to meet your needs and make sure you are taken care of we have created a Men’s Only Service Menu to fit your direct needs, they are quick, efficient, and results driven services.  We have even put together packages which allow you to get more services for your money!

Call Neilmarie Salon Today and speak with one of our professional stylists to find out more!  With 2 convenient locations to service you!
