The barbers at Catanza's Barber Shop tame head tresses with cuts, colors, and shaves in an old-fashioned barbershop atmosphere; their follicular services and nostalgic décor won them 2nd place in the Best Barber category of Fox-8 Cleveland's Hot List in 2008. Undergo meticulous scissor snips for a dudely 'do (a $16 value), then evict unruly stubble with a refreshing shave (a $20 value). The shop's walls are adorned with pictures of famed Ohio athletes striking their best collector-card poses, and the shelves are lined with bobbleheads that are too risky to buzzcut. A waiting-area television provides customers with entertainment and style ideas from their favorite cartoons.
The trained stylists at Rometrics Salon-Spa stay loyal to Aveda products as they shear tresses in the classic styles the salon has perfected throughout its two-decade life. They also add depth with highlights or administer perms for curls that clients can clip off to use as a slinky whenever a toddler threatens them. Rometrics’s aestheticians also cleave to Aveda products as they renew visages with facials, or employ LED light therapy to combat signs of aging. The nail technicians’ weapon of choice is Gelish or OPI polish, the bright colors of which enliven fingertips after paraffin treatments nourish skin. Clients hoping to complete their makeovers can also shade their skin with a spray tan, get their brows tinted, and evict leg hair with waxing. Newly offered by Rometrics, non-invasive body-contouring treatments target fat and smooth skin.
Those more interested in relaxation and inner harmony can stretch out amid the beige hues and wall sconces of a private massage room while a massage therapist kneads aching muscles and soothes their senses with aromatherapy. Those creamy hues also outfit the skincare room, and the styling area’s sage green and bright, cheery blue create a more energetic atmosphere for follicular transformations.
Every hair appointment at Avanti Salon West begins with a complimentary consultation with a dedicated and talented stylist. From there, the hair experts can cut and color strands using products by Goldwell, Paul Mitchell, and Matrix to create styles that complement the client’s vision, personality, and face shape. An appointment in the styling chair is best followed up with a trip to Avanti’s nail corner for an OPI mani-pedi or a face-to-face encounter with a makeup artist armed with Jane Iredale cosmetics. And though beauty is its number one priority, the salon also offers massages and other bodywork treatments.
Destiny Derma Spa & Salon's aestheticians dote on patron appearances with a line of top-shelf skincare products that nourish and moisturize. Certified organic or paraben-free serums by Eminence, Ilike, Image, Hydropeptide, Being True Cosmetics, Pure Illumination and Puramed are slathered gingerly across skinscapes to imbue skin with youthful radiance like the frosting on Peter Pan's birthday cake. Specialists bolster serum results by wielding an array of skin-smoothing devices, such as their diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand or the Jet Peel device, which flushes away dull dead cells with supersonic jets of water and air.
