Bred as half salon, half spa, Scott Talbot Salonspa overhauls men's and women's stale looks with a menu of hair, nail, and skin treatments. Armed with products by Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil, stylists enhance hair color with highlights and gray blending or break into a cutting frenzy by snipping off split ends or transforming floor-length hair into chic bobs to ward off overly aggressive princes. Cushy pedicure chairs line the nail area, where technicians push back encroaching cuticles and embellish fingers and toes with polish and acrylic fills. Aestheticians and massage therapists guide guests into a quiet spa room for one of five specialty facials or a Swedish massage.
The stylists and cosmetologists at Studio CEO travel the country attending seminars and trade shows to stay on top of industry trends, a practice that helped the studio to earn nominations for best hair salon and hair color on Fox 8's Hot List. The studio arms its staff with products from top brands, as stylists transform 'dos with Goldwell hair color, and techs spruce up paws with OPI’s UV-cured Shellac and Axxium gel keratin covers. The salon and spa also carries hair-centric brands ranging from Moroccanoil and Bumble and bumble to Keratin Complex by Coppola, so that clients don’t have to maintain shiny locks by sticking their heads under automatic shoe buffers.
Within Sola Salon, Aesthetic Studio aesthetician Lea Smith delivers targeted facial treatments. They include services that aim to minimize signs of aging, cleanse deep within pores, or control breakouts. In addition to administering the six signature facials—which range from 30 to 90 minutes in length—Lea exiles fuzz with nearly 20 waxing options and tints brows and eyelashes for natural looks that shave time off morning makeup routines.
At Beauty Oasis, clients are guaranteed to be the center of attention. That's because the cozy salon is designed to service just one guest at a time. So there's no crowded salon to worry about or magazines to pretend to read. When clients arrive, stylist Kathy Alali is ready to pamper them with haircare and skincare services. Nonetheless, the salon still offers complimentary WiFi, coffee, and tea.
