The beauticians at Hello Gorgeous wield makeup, nail polish, and other pampering paraphernalia to transform girls into glamorous stars. A manicure dolls up little digits with a soak, file, and polish before a pedicure treats little piggies on their way to market with the respect and vibrant nail art they deserve. Finally, a staff member beautifies young faces with a variety of makeup shades and colors, outfitting them with rock-star attitude, runway-model swagger, or a constitutional monarch’s demure sense of propriety. For more examples of gussied up glitz within Hello Gorgeous’ pink walls, guests can check out its photo gallery.
Inside this airy salon—bedecked with wooden crates and Parisian prints—stylists bolster each client's personal style with cuts, coloring, and hair treatments. Numerous coloring techniques, including base breaks and highlights, camouflage grey strands and provide a more youthful sheen to hairdos. Keratin and Japanese relaxer treatments help discipline the hair by keeping each lock as straight as a schoolmarm's ruler. The team also accentuates features with haircuts, and readies brides-to-be with sweeping up-dos and airbrush makeup.
With their combined expertise in hair styling and finance, sisters Kay and Kesalynn joined the family tradition started by their grandmother, Lady Eloise, and opened a salon. With Kay as the stylist and Kesalynn as the financial brains, Divine Creations Hair Designs was created with the goal of offering salon services for all hair types. And with services ranging from Brazilian blowouts to afro relaxers or spiral sets, the salon's stylists do exactly that. Hot oil and nourishing maks, along with soothing pressure-point shampoos or romantic sonnets whispered to the scalp, enhance hair health as well as style.
Aisha Khalid opened her first women-only salon and spa in 1994 and has since expanded her beautifying services to 10 family-owned locations. The business specializes in haircare, herbal facials, henna tattoos, threading, and body waxing, which, despite its name, is not the creation of a wax statue of Marilyn Monroe, Abe Lincoln, or Abe’s torso on Marilyn’s legs. The salon is open every day of the week, accommodating clients with various schedules, and the staff takes pride in being friendly and maintaining a clean atmosphere.
Luxe Salon & Spa restores a healthy, relaxed glow to skin, nails, and hair. Custom facial treatments address each client’s specific skin tone and imbalances, and manicures polish nails after preventing overgrown cuticles by lining the lower base of the nail with mini sandbags. A team of talented stylists shapes hair and paints new ‘dos with balayage-style highlights, which grow out to complement a head’s natural shade. The spa’s signature services include massages and body wraps, which relax the body more than submerging oneself in a dunk tank full of warm milk.
