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.
The professional staff of stylists and colorists at The Hair Co. welcome repeat customers and referred clients as they sculpt hairdos for men, women, and children using products by Paul Mitchell and TIGI. When they aren't snipping strands and tinting locks with new hues and highlights, stylists condition frazzled mops with Redken conditioning treatments and perm tendrils so they resemble mint-condition Slinkys. Guests preparing for fancy occasions can have stylists add feather extensions or twirl tresses into sophisticated updos.
The stylists and aestheticians at ECHO Salon snip strands into trendy styles and shift hair shades to produce completely new looks. Team members shear off layers for flirtatious bobs or feather bangs and tame manes with relaxers, thermal straightening, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments. The stylists also shape and tint brows into elegant arches and craft classic updos for special events such as weddings, proms, and staring contests with the fairest mirror on the wall.
Hairstyling runs in Melanie Niles's family. The Getaway Salon and Spa owner's great-grandfather was a barber, and her mother gussied up the coifs of neighbors and immediate family members for years. "I guess it's in my blood," the mother of two muses as she discusses her eight-year tenure as a hairstylist and nailcare specialist.
Niles plies the family trade from the cozy confines of her relaxing salon and day spa. A tropical beach theme permeates the intimate space, where pictures of waves lapping various shores line baby-blue and tan walls and tranquil music plays calmly over the sound system. Niles offers clients a range of hot teas as well as coffee and water to sip while she treats their hair to organic products from brands such as Sukésha.
Tucked inside the Endurance Fitness Center, Evolve Salon hosts a staff of stylists who help invent brand-new looks or maintain favorite hairstyles by shearing, coloring, and perming locks. They also style coiffures for nights on the town or days spent shadowing the town's comptroller, brighten nails with manicures and pedicures, and help patrons bid adieu to pesky fuzz with waxing services.
Aveda-trained stylists Leah Kammer and Maggie Slagboom set out to put their skills to good use by providing clients with ombre color, sleek haircuts, gloss treatments, and waxing sessions. Kevin Murphy deep-conditioning treatments lend shine and strength to coiffures, and corrective color treatments allow patrons to undo their impulsive decisions to go gray before it happens naturally.
