Colorbar The Salon combines the modern elegance of boxy angles and hard lines with the time-tested charm of antique accents. Flowers burst with color against black-lined mirrors, which hang over stocky wooden cabinets wearing hats of granite. Nearby, white chairs seem to glow as clients sink into them, sighing beneath high ceilings that are held up in part by a polished cloud-white column and part by sky-blue walls. If it wasn’t for the hardwood floors, glowing warmly in hues that flirt with red, clients might think they’ve floated away. Yet Colorbar’s stylists remain grounded as they cut, condition, and revamp hair. They work with clients’ features to sculpt the most face-flattering styles possible, coloring and highlighting to complement eye color and skin tone. They even offer a VIP membership program that grants frequent guests privileges such as unlimited haircuts and blowouts each month and salon parties that celebrate special occasions such as a girls’ night out, a wedding, or medaling at the Lumberjack World Championships.
As clients lounge in leather-backed chairs, the stylists at Chop Chop Bang Bang trim locks into alternative styles, modern pixie cuts, and long layers that garner second and third looks from passersby. Using color as an antidote to everyday 'dos, the stylists are known for their use of strategic pops of sun-kissed highlights or bold hues, which can include bright blues and fuchsias. Each professional's cache of tools includes Enjoy haircare products and Bio Ionic brushes and flat irons, which the salon also sells for at-home or at-jury-duty styling on the go.
The professional muscle kneaders at Effleurage Massage Therapy & Bodywork aim to ease tension and promote wellness from the outside-in. They’ve mastered a quintet of styles—Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, sports, and chair massage—that they tailor to each client’s particular aches. The company’s list of post-massage benefits rings true to many previous clients, who have experienced first-hand the boost of energy, improved joint flexibility, and limbo-contest prowess that come with each massage.
It's hard to look beautiful on the outside if you're not healthy on the inside. That's why Dr. Kavita Beri and the staff at Beri Esthetique cover all the bases by offering both primary medical care and cosmetic treatments. The doctor gives special attention to preventative measures when treating patients who have or are at risk of hypertension, diabetes, and asthma, and she performs annual heath screenings to keep patients on the lookout for these conditions. In the cosmetic department, she and her staff strive to use the least invasive means possible to achieve clear, youthful complexions in their clients. Some services, such as laser hair removal, laser spider-vein removal, and IPL photofacials, require hardly a touch, and slightly more aggressive treatments such as Botox and PCA chemical peels can be performed in a single office visit, much like a routine lollipop-endectomy.
When Kimberly Schadewald won a gift certificate for a massage, she wasn’t just winning free relief from stress. She was winning relief from the chronic pain that had plagued her since a work injury when she was 16. It also led her to discover a calling to heal others in the same way. Before founding 5 Points Wellness LLC, she studied Massage and Neuromuscular Therapy at the Gentle Healing School of Massage before attending Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to study reiki. Equipped with this knowledge and experience, Schadewald helps clients alternatively manage and prevent pain through massage services with amenities such as a heated cherry stone pillow that eases areas of deep tension. She also works with children over the age of 6 to eradicate the daily stress of growing older, going to school, and cat fighting with imaginary friends.
A trip into one of Tiki Image?s tanning beds treats clients to sun-kissed skin. Six levels of beds include extras such as facial tanners or a sound system with a subwoofer. For those with a sunless preference, the salon offers both custom airbrush and spray-tan booths that coat bodies in a skin-darkening formula without pesky streaks or squiggly lines. Yet another booth at the salon emits red light, which works to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. Along with tanning services, Tiki Image offers fit body wraps to burn calories, relieve stiff muscles, and detoxify the body.
