Salon Atelier's rose-colored door opens each day because of the efforts of owners Julia Hartman and Cynthia Newsome. Julia's career started 20 years ago when she studied cosmetology at Schilling Douglas School of Hair Design. After her prowess as a stylist, nail technician, and aesthetician landed her work at a salon, she became a brand specialist for Aveda Hair Care and MAC Cosmetics. That's when she started to miss working in a salon—a longing that inspired her to start Salon Atelir with Cynthia Newsome.
Meanwhile, Cynthia's 30 years of experience started at the Annapolis Beauty Academy. She worked in salons and spas, and even opened two of her own. In addition to traveling as an educator and platform artist, she won several awards as a colorist. Together, Julia and Cynthia lead a team of hairstylists, nail artists, and aestheticians. They also use products by Davines—an Italian company dedicated to sustainability and the Renaissance tradition that inspired Michelangelo to paint shampoo bottles on the Sistine Chapel.
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.
Amid blush-pink walls, Whit's End Salon & Spa gives its team of stylists 3,000 square feet of elbow room—and they use it to keep their guests feeling beautiful with a head-to-toe menu of services. Hair experts armed with Redken products brighten locks with color treatments, and weave hair into elegant updos or alluring fruit baskets. Nail technicians adorn fingers and toes with coats of chip-resistant shellac polish, while aestheticians erase signs of aging or acne with Dermalogica salves. Waxing, spray or UV tanning, and make-up applications add the final flourish to a new look.
At Keith Harris Salon, the stylists and aestheticians boast extensive experience in their fields, and it shows in the attentive services they provide. In addition to haircuts, the salon offers a number of intensive haircare services, including demi-permanent waves, formal updos, and professional hair coloring.
The salon’s staff also performs a range of refreshing skincare treatments. The rejuvenating vitamin C facial employs antioxidants to diminish signs of aging, sun damage, and motorcycling full-speed through lush jungles, helping to restore skin to a more youthful radiance. A special gentleman’s facial includes a shoulder-and-neck massage and moisturizing mask.
Whether you visit Christina Josephs Salon for a haircut, a wig or extension fitting, or a massage, you'll benefit from a team trained in a sprawling array of services. Bodies get beach-ready with services from the highly-trained team such as waxing and airbrush tanning, while photographers are on-hand to snap head shots, boudoir photos, and glamor pics to hand out to your new dolphin friends. To make sure those head shots look their best, try one of the salon's cleansing facials or microdermabrasion treatments, each of which is designed to brighten and revitalize skin.
