At Formulas Hair & Beauty Bar, hair health is the main focus. Silk wraps and natural silk presses leave natural of chemically treated tresses shiny and bouncy, and conditioners nourish strands from root to tip. On the styling end of the spectrum, services such as weaves, cuts, and color treatments result in dramatic new looks. And the salon's beauty experts extend the same eye for detail to other treatments as well, such as enhancing lashes with extensions.
A massage is more than a pampering treatment—it's a way to rejuvenate the mind, body, and soul. That's the mindset at DiamondsTouch Massage & Spa, where staffers strive to destress their clients with soothing handiwork, as well as with facials, detoxifying foot soaks, and nailcare. They also extend their services to groups getting ready for weddings, birthdays, or black-tie pig pickings.
Nekesa Smith unleashes her styling prowess on each client, making sure they leave her salon feeling radiant and confident in their new looks. Using her own line of haircare products, Nekesa helps women embrace their hair texture with a variety of salon services, from loc grooming to applying avocado hair masks, which are more effective than guacamole masks. These transformations take place in her airy studio—which she describes as a "lofty femme salon atmosphere"—that pairs feminine violet walls and crisp white styling chairs with the industrial vibe of exposed brick walls.
Although Nekesa's profession helps women enhance their outer appearances, she also believes in beautifying the inner self. As such, she developed a nonprofit, Doing It Her Way, which focuses on entrepreneurship, education, and empowerment for women.
