Getting a haircut is one thing; getting a hair design is quite another. At Headlines Hair Design, a professional staff with 70 years of combined experience is led by owner Joe Panichelli, a certified hair expert who's been designing stylish looks for men and women since 1975. As their careers have progressed, each stylist has kept up-to-date on the latest styling techniques to offer comprehensive hair design, and throughout the years, the owners have updated their salon's decor to reflect their cutting-edge services. To complement their hair services, Headlines also offers waxing treatments and bridal and special-event styling services.
Under the guidance of Vidal Sassoon–trained owner Michele Greim, stylists at Salon A apply their fashion savvy to clients’ heads. In a warm, Tuscan-inspired space decorated with yellow walls, distressed mirrors, and marble tiles, experts carefully prune manes into styles ranging from sleek bobs to edgy pixie cuts. As eco-friendly Enjoy and hard-to-find It's A 10 products create stylish looks, stylists dispense easy-to-follow tips, recommend haircare items, and explain why peanut butter makes a subpar replacement for styling gel. Color treatments completely transform hairstyles, whether with the summery streaks of partial highlights or the bold all-over hues of a single-process color.
Hairs To You's services include cuts, color, waxing, tanning, and more. Ladies can get their locks shampooed, cut, and styled ($48), while dudes can get similarly dappered for $22. A single-process coloring (first time or new color, $43) or a root touch-up ($36) will turn the most colorless coif into Technicolor tresses. Beyond the head-weeds, Hairs To You can also clear the skin with a half-hour "lunchtime peel" microdermabrasion ($100), color it with a full-body airbrush tan ($40), and adorn it with a makeup application ($25). Whatever combination of services you select, your mirror will be much more likely to offer praise and unsolicited massages when you get home.
The intricately painted manicures created at Butterfly Nail Salon are about as unique as the colorings on a butterfly's wings. At one table, a technician might be painting acrylics with a modernity-inspired coat of white polish, while the next table might find a client gasping with delight over the cupcake-themed manicure on her natural nails. Pink-and-whites are popular here, as are no-chip gel polishes that, like robot butlers, are available in both traditional and neon hues.
