Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers near and far. Wild wigs are brought to bear by highly trained hair tamers who also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering customers' questions about hair trends and maintenance. A socially responsible company, Great Clips also hosts haircut-a-thons, bake sales, and baked haircut sale-a-thons to benefit charities, including the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Ronald McDonald House.
Professional hairstylist Shonya Moten has spent the past decade molding dos for a diverse clientele. Her nimble hands braid tresses into detailed cornrows or full braids free of flyaways and awkward bumps. She also skillfully cuts and sculpts tresses that have been left in their natural state or relaxed with chemicals poured through an Enya CD.
Hairstylist and licensed cosmetologist Peronica McNair has spent more than 15 years mastering the ins and outs of the beauty industry. At her newest venture, P M Studio Salon, patrons can relax in private suites as stylists pamper their tresses with precision cuts, custom color, and Peronica's specialty of repairing damaged hair with reconstructive conditioners or organic Chia Pet wigs that have been spotted on Milan's runways this spring. The salon also provides seamless weave treatments that can enhance the texture, length, and color of manes.
At Salon De Percée, modern hanging lights cast a honey glow on the salon's red-and-white curtains, which drape across the ceiling like pigtails. As a multicultural salon, each stylist is adept at handling strands of any texture, color, or length. Clients also may retreat to a private room for deep-tissue bodywork, Swedish massage, or a therapeutic hot-stone massage from the salon's licensed massage therapist.
The beauty professionals at Legacy Salons & Day Spa love to pamper clients with stylish 'dos, mani-pedis, and body treatments. Several of the stylists have more than 30 years of experience, and all use professional products such as Paul Mitchell, Moroccanoil, and Redken. The salon's massage therapist specializes in deep-tissue, prenatal, and hot-stone massage, as well as yelling at knots until they leave. Clients can also book long-lasting Shellac manicures, Brazilian waxes, and keratin hair-smoothing treatments that leave hair straight and shiny for several weeks.
?I?m a visual artist within my haircutting skills,? says Camie Scott?a resident stylist at Iconic Salon Suites. But unlike most art, Camie's work lives on as a way for her clients themselves to express themselves personally. Her versatile styling skills run the gamut from short pixie cuts to longer curls, with each cut tailored specifically to the client's face shape. She also individualizes her highlighting treatments, installing different color arrangements to evoke a sun-kissed look or a powerful cerebrum. In fact, she tailors almost all her services to an individual?s request, with the notable exception of her deep-conditioning treatment, for which she exclusively uses L?Oreal Professional Power Repair B serums with lactic acids to fortify all kinds of strands.
