Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
A familiar face at The Beauty Store Salon & Spa's Lamar Boulevard location, Patricia Hutt has drawn flocks of repeat customers with an approach to hair that emphasizes each customer's individuality. Treating each strand as its own puzzle piece in the whole, she deftly resolves hair-related predicaments by drawing on her more than 12 years of professional salon experience. Armed with The Beauty Store's cache of professional hair products, the veteran stylist's specialties range from the total banishment of frizz via Brazilian blowouts to precision bang trims that finally let eyes see the world that hair was keeping from them.
The “Adore Artists” at Adore Makeup Boutique and Salon each boast their own specialties that together keep clients fully pampered. They apply makeup for special occasions, bulk up lashes with extensions, and wax brows into perfect arches. A hairstylist cuts away overgrown locks and a colorist bestows strands with vibrant hues. Lastly, a spray tan expert covers bodies in an organic formula free of parabens and infused with an orange-ginger scent.
When Martha Millan says, "Beauty shouldn't hurt," she's not peddling a slogan—her first job in the beauty industry literally caused her pain. Working at an upscale salon, her exposure to common hair and makeup products triggered hives and headaches. While searching for more natural goods for personal use, her research revealed unsettling truths about many industry product lines that often use irritating perfumes to mask the underlying odors of harsh chemicals. Feeling that everyone should have the opportunity to look beautiful without fear of harming health, she bought a salon and transformed it into Salon O Day Spa.
Amid Salon O Day's industrial decor, Millan and her team of stylists, aestheticians, and a massage therapist use products so natural that some are even edible, though Millan imagines the taste would leave something to be desired: barbecue sauce. Among the array of certified-organic, not-tested-on-animals, gluten- and chemical-free products, Millan's favorites include Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare, developed by an American physician who advocates against overexfoliation. For hair, stylists use products from lines including Surface Hair and Organic Color Systems, and during nail services, technicians use natural products from SpaRitual in tandem with scrubs made in-house from ingredients bought at a local co-op.
Amid crystal chandeliers and wicker furnishings,stylists at Asberry's A' Salon transform hair with custom Brazilian blowouts and hair extensions from brands such as Chi, Hairdreams, and So.Cap. The beauty haven's resident aesthetician brightens and smoothens complexions with ?minence Organic Skin Care products, and nail technicians enhance mani-pedis with acrylic tips or hand-painted portraits of other fingernails.
Cherry at Salons by JC uses her skills to cut, color, style, straighten, and wax hair. Cherry leverages her degree from cosmetology school to specialize in trend-informed haircuts, color work, and updos for weddings.
