Inside the laid-back neighborhood salon, experienced stylists chat with regulars while styling their 'dos with Schwarzkopf, White Sands, and Alterna Bamboo products. The young team prioritizes keeping up with the latest industry and Hollywood trends, such as keratin straightening treatments and OPI Axxium gel mani-pedis. A certified massage therapist complements the salon's trendy services with treatments as relaxing as napping in a hammock in a candle store. The bright, minimal space makes small details, such as a fireplace, gilt-framed mirrors, and cool-toned accent walls, pop.
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.
Nestled inside Eclipse Salon Suites, Just Teasin' Hair Studio owner Leanne Hawley pulls from American Crew styling products and tea-tree shampoos to update 'dos for men, women, and children. After getting to know her clients and determining their style and preferences, she deftly snips locks to flatter each face. In addition to cutting coifs, Leanne also douses strands with a fresh coat of color or adds dimension and depth with highlights, lowlights, and black lights.
Stationed within the stress-free zone of Eclipse Salon Suites, certified massage therapist Andrea Newton treats world-weary muscles to therapeutic hot-stone and relaxation massages. Andrea’s contoured and padded massage bed absorbs anxieties as she coaxes them out of backs and shoulders with intuitive strokes and gentle pressure. Powder-blue and soft-brown walls coalesce in a palette that soothes the eyes while Andrea plumbs muscles, plies soft tissue, and unties knots that routinely cause shoulder blades to trip over each other.
