The stylists at Shockwave Salon share over 40 years of experience as they deftly tend to heads of hair in an airy studio space painted with bright reds and greens. They apply new looks with skilled hands that snip off excess locks, deep condition, or style dos. Additionally, Saturday nights see the salon filled with live music that enhances an atmosphere already packed with posters that pay homage to rock, punk, and jazz musicians.
Shampoo JC Hair Salon's stylists draw inspiration from art, music and fashion. Thanks to the artful eyes of the new owners, also of Shampoo Avenue B in NYC, the beauty haven's decor would be right at home in a gallery or record shop. The walls display a rotating selection of local artwork, which might include a collection of old albums, or paintings inspired by rock 'n' roll. It's enough to make clients forget they're inside a hair salon, until they glance in the mirror and see their new 'do. The reflection may reveal ombre highlights, sleek blowouts, asymmetrical cuts—or a style so classic that clients will wonder if the shop's hair dryers are some sort of time machine. The savvy staff specializes in a wide range of snipped fashions, as well as treatments such as keratin and Brazilian blowouts.
Studio A Salon helps guests fully realize their beauty with a slate of hair and spa services. In addition to new hairdos, the team can perform color and conditioning treatments to keep locks from becoming lusterless. Waxing treatments are available if you want to remove unwanted fuzz from various areas on the body or recently harvested peaches, and the studio's manicure pedicure treatments keep the nails in brilliant chromatic coverings. They also have some specialty med-spa services: Cavitation, which helps burn fat deposits in the body, and infrared sauna services, which help people sweat out toxins.
Led by stylist Sherif, the staff of World Beauty Center combines technical know-how with taste and creativity to craft flattering, stylish cuts. Sherif and his team stay abreast of seasonal trends to create up-to-the-moment color treatments and looks modeled after whatever new 'do the local weatherman just adopted. In addition to hair services, World Beauty Center also performs mani-pedis and makeup sessions.
The stylists at Vanity Beauty Hair Salon do much more than just snip men's, women's, and kids' locks. They infuse moisture into dry hair with hydrating repair treatments and intense masks, and add bounce to straight 'dos with curl-inducing perms. Highlights add sun-kissed streaks and camouflage color masks grays or helps patrons blend into nine varieties of prairie grass. Simple blowouts create a polished look for special events and nights out, whereas formal styles prep clients for a walk down the aisle or red carpet.
If there's one thing owner and stylist Melissa Addison can't stand, it's a poorly installed weave. This professional disdain led to her founding of Cover Girlz Salon, where she and her team of stylists remedy poorly applied chemical processes and traction damage with high-quality sew-in weaves and extensions, trendy designer cuts, and smoothing relaxers. Once new looks have been achieved to their guests' satisfaction, Melissa and the team help them maintain their new look by doling out ample haircare education.
