Acting as lash pioneers within Ohio, Botanica Organic Salon owner and veteran stylist Phyllis DiSalvo is one of the state's first Xtreme Lash stylists. Along with aesthetician Angela Chulack, they first rest clients on a comfortable massage table within Botanica's serene environment. Afterwards, they proceed to place a faux eyelash application onto clients' existing lashes, working to lengthen them to any desired length, width, or intensity. The salon's services eliminate the need to apply mascara every morning, and help clients do away with allergenic makeups, painful curlers, and damaging waterproof formulas.
The staff at Shannon Michael Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, are not ones to learn through trial and error. Rather, they go through purposeful monthly training to stay apace of the latest trends and techniques. Haircuts and coloring from pro- and master-level stylists testify to the success of their mission, with results both elegant and cutting edge. The staff also deliver elaborate nail services, such as hot-stone manicures and peppermint foot masks with warm towels and hand and foot massages.
With a nod to the environment, the stylists at Creative Hair Design strive to pull from natural products when snipping or coloring tresses. Serums from Moroccanoil and L?Anza also provide structure as stylists assemble strands into elegant updos. In addition to hair, the techs dote on digits with bright coats of OPI polish.
For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup, and pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. Then once you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
For the past two decades, hairstylist Pat Blake has worked at a variety of salons across Colorado and Ohio. Though working at those beauty havens sharpened her cutting and styling skills, the master colorist wasn’t yet fully content with her work’s potential. To that end, she now caters to clients' needs from her own business - Fringes - tucked within Sola Salon Studios. There, she gives each client her full attention while helping each one decide on a style. To create her classic and trendy coifs, Pat reaches for Aquage, Kenra, and Goldwell products and blends in face-framing highlights as well as perms. When not focused on hair treatments, she also refreshes faces with makeup applications and performs waxing services to help clean up bushy brows or gently remove cat whiskers that grew in overnight.
