Modern paper lanterns and twinkling string lights cast a honey glow on the salon's grape walls and polished wood floors. Amid these cozy accents, mother and son team Paula and Patrick, along with their staff, sculpt confident layers and revamp bland strands with color highlights. Clients may also solicit the salon for beautification services such as facial waxing, brow tinting, and private yoga.
Forty-six-year-old single mom Leslie was so inspired by her first encounters with LED phototherapy that she became certified as a skin technician shortly thereafter. Today, more than 10 years later, she helps her clients eschew the need to drop thousands of dollars on injections, plastic surgery, and facial creams by harnessing blue- and red-light technologies. With careful calibrations, she has found laser therapy to effectively treat fine lines, cellulite, and acne.
Over the years, stylist Jaymie Hazard has honed her craft in Paris, New York, and Boston, styling hair for photo shoots and fashion shows. She and the staff at Enlightenment Day Spa bring the same level of professionalism to clients, where they provide haircuts, hair color, keratin treatments, and hair extensions, as well as makeup applications, mani-pedis, and waxing services.
The stylists at Salon X perform hair and waxing services using Gelish gel polishes, Babe Hair Extensions, Redken shampoos and conditioners, and other high-quality products such as Framesi, bedhead, Pravana, Sexy Hair, and Moroccanoil. They also offer Keratin Complex hair-smoothing treatments and Hair Treats hair extensions that affix to strands without heat, glue, or wizard intervention.
The salon itself is filled with lots of natural light, which streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows to illuminate sleek, black styling stations and a waiting area with a coffee station and animal-print chairs.
