Sabrina Kern—artistic director or Salon Demetri—doesn't want her clients to feel trapped by the natural state of their hair. So she's curated her salon's services to cater to whims of each client, whether they are seeking straight locks, curling tresses, or lightning-shaped pig-tails. Sabrina's team of stylists specialize in Kerapure smoothing treatments, which use amino technology to smooth and straighten hair without the damage of harsh chemicals or the inherent deception of magic. Stylists can also lengthen hair with the salon’s SoCap hair extensions that bond real human hair to your natural strands with keratin-based agents. After redesigning hair into the desired color, cut, or texture, the stylists educate clients in the expert tricks of how to maintain their new look at home and on the go.

Upon entering the Foofaraw Hair Productions studio, visitors may feel as though they've stumbled into a rustic cottage rather than a hair salon. The morning sun streams in through tulle curtains, spotlighting hardwood floors, cushy armchairs, and a tailor's dress form. Senior stylist Randon Flood stands at an antique armoire, sorting through his collection of Moroccanoil products, styling tools, and enchanted singing combs as he prepares for a day of cutting, coloring, and styling hair.

Salon Ivy's skilled stylists offer a bevy of hair-care services, cultivating and harvesting men's and women's headtop fields. Women can prep for a fancy dinner or fancy dinnertime-fancytime with a shampoo and style ($30), or update their look entirely with a basic cut and style ($45) and all-over hair color ($65+). Men can blend in with younger men with a camouflage color ($30+), which refreshes fading hair tones, or keep locks from lingering in front of eyes with a basic cut and style ($30). All haircuts take place in private rooms, allowing the utmost individualized attention while the stylist focuses on one head only. Other services include waxing, makeup application, and extensions. For all of Salon Ivy's pampering procedures, only the highest-quality products—among them Schwarzkopf, Pureology, Moroccan Oil, and Viva Curl—are used.

Just as they maintain the splendor of their location in the historic Merrill House, built circa 1917, so do the aestheticians at Pure Skincare Boutique maintain the beauty of their clients.

Staffers also offer custom airbrush tanning, which gives skin a sun-kissed glow without harmful rays, and eyelash extensions, which add fullness to lashes and vitality to eyes without the need for mascara or unpronounceable incantations.

Jessica Pannone first started beautifying faces at age 14. Today, as a licensed aesthetician, she runs a fetching spa and brandishes PCA Skin treatments and products against armies of acne, wrinkles, and dry skin. She prefers PCA Skin because it abstains from synthetic colors, fragrances, and animal testing and develops its finished products with the help of solid medical case studies. When she isn't smoothing epidermises with chemical peels and facials, she uses warm wax to extract unwanted hair and reshape eyebrows that have taken to impersonating Salvador Dal?'s mustache.
