Walking away from West Coast Hair after hair-extension appointments, patrons can toss silky, newly lengthened manes that would have otherwise taken years to grow. At locations in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, stylists apply the extensions using a strand-by-strand technique and fusion-free bonds without damaging glue or chemicals. With proper maintenance, elongated tresses can last up to six months.
Because spa clients have diverse expectations and desires, Bay Salon & Spa’s personnel begins each service with a professional consultation. This allows stylists to crown male and female clients with just the right choice of hair products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Eufora. To prevent torch-wielding villagers from attacking people who walk around too stiffly, the spa has also founded a massage club, which offers monthly 60- or 90-minute massages at a discounted rate.
When taj salon & spa’s stylists extract coloring foils, they don’t toss them in the trash. Instead, they recycle the aluminum, putting taj on a short list of local businesses that do so. This is just one of the ways the staff show how devoted they are to beautifying both the earth and the people that populate it. The members of the styling team have been trained extensively with Aveda and the International Dermal Institute to improve their hair, skin, and massage services. Other thoughtful touches that show their dedication to clients include warm towels for the face and neck during haircuts, complimentary bang trims between visits, and stylists who travel to create stunning hairdos before a wedding or between innings of a baseball game.
Upon entering The Image Creator Salon & Day Spa, clients are greeted by 17 seasoned stylists, each with at least five years of experience. As they cut and color hair, two certified massage therapists attempt to reduce clients’ anxiety with customized massages. Spa packages combine hair, nail, and body treatments to rejuvenate clients without fairy godmothers. After treatments, visitors can peruse a collection of products from brands such as Matrix Biolage, Crew, and Aveda to maintain their new looks at home.
