Since 2007, the walls at Hudson & Fouquet Salon have been filling up with accolades, from Best of Annapolis and Best of Baltimore. The salon's minimalistic, spacious interior is punctuated by black leather chairs, where clients recline before appointments with a talented team who make hair their sole focus. Their cuts, color, and styling treatments overhaul heads, forming freshly clipped strands into new frames to complement faces.
Helmed by owner Jeanie Chaney, Jeanie's Salon & Spa is an oasis of beauty and pampering. Her staff of stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians tends to the hair and skincare needs of ladies and gents alike, offering a full menu of cuts, color treatments, facials, and massages. They also ready brides for the aisle with artistic airbush makeup applications and keep beach-goers or bikini-wearing court justices sleek with professional body waxing services.
Your visit to Glow begins with a deep-conditioning treatment, which soothes frazzled and frayed strands and repairs damage and follicular deterioration. Glow's expert stylists will finish taming tresses with a boosting blow dry. After your hair therapy, choose the pampering of your choice from Glow's diverse skin, nail, body, and hair services. Get life's stresses kneaded out with a 30-minute deep-tissue massage ($65), or opt for a pore-minimizing facial ($75) in preparation for unexpected appearances on JumboTrons. Soak in the soothing aroma of the French countryside of your teen years with a lavender pedicure ($65), which scrubs scruffy soles and treats them with a calming mask and massage, or add a paraffin treatment ($15) to a classic manicure ($24) and impress the prime minister with your velvety-soft handshake.
Ruby Salon's skilled coiffurists provide quality tress-pampering services in a sleek, contemporary hair haven. Relax as a stylist enlivens a monochromatic mane with a full set of highlights in your desired hue, adding depth to hair's color and added drama to head's shakes. Next, a luxurious coating of deep-conditioning treatment is applied to ensure locks remain shiny, smooth, and resistant to scaling by miniature break-in artists. A professional blow-dry completes the session before freshly refreshened clients are sent off with a newly calibrated bounce in their step.
Vincent Wright snipped his first bang in his uncle’s barbershop in 1963, and that bit of creativity went on to became his lifelong passion. He later went on to study at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in London, perfecting his styling techniques so much that he was invited to join the faculty. Eventually, he returned to Maryland, where he opened Ascension Salon and Spa in 1988.
And his shears haven’t slowed down since. He and his team of stylists trim, style, and color hair, while their aesthetician allies cleanse skin with facials or paint nails in lacquer, Shellac, or tiny oil portraits of Renaissance beauties. On the spa side, massages knead away tension in 30- to 90-minute sessions and aromatherapy treatments extend calm feelings into the air you breathe.
No matter what look a client asks for, no matter how trendy it is, Luxe Studio's stylists are prepared to execute it. Once a month, every staffer learns about the latest trends, methods, and political coups taking place in the world of style. This means they're totally ready to handle anything their clients throw at them during their in-depth consultations, though they specialize specifically in hair color and extensions.
Away from the salon chairs, aestheticians wax away unwanted hair, and a Reiki practitioner works to balance energy and relieve stress. The salon's makeup artists help clients select makeup shades that flatter their skin tone and hair and eye color.
