When Lamar Hair Studio first opened its doors, clients were mostly likely requesting beehives, or, if they were a bit younger, perhaps short mod styles. The salon's been operating since the Johnson administration, and nearly a half-century later, it’s transformed its classic approach into one focused more on modern, fashion-forward styles. Clients can still stop in for a timeless look or a formal updo, but the stylists also flaunt a knack for sculpting asymmetrical shapes, adding funky streaks of color, and performing cutting-edge texture treatments.
Inside the earth-toned Shear Salon stylists dole out haircuts to the entire family. Coif crafters also nourish locks with deep-conditioning treatments and add drama with highlights and color. The full-service salon tends to more than manes, though. Its certified waxer removes unwanted hair on the face and body.
Phillip Michael offers an array of salon and spa services behind a warm and charming storefront. Hair services include cuts ($28+ for women, $22+ for men), flat-iron styling ($20+), coloring ($50+), and highlights ($70+) for lion manes infested with damaging micro-cyclones. Reap the benefits of a bikini ($50+) and lower-leg waxing ($60+) and feel confident stepping outside in this season's revealing bloomers, or opt for the back wax ($50+) and turn your stern into a living canvas for mall-kiosk celebrity portraits. Inject a dose of healing into world-weary backs with an hour-long massage (60+), or release underground reservoirs of oil and detritus with a beautifying facial ($60+). Other services include perms ($70+), manicures ($20+), and pedicures ($45+) for a fully grown beauty bounty.
