Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
At Situations Hair and Nail Studio, a multitalented team applies makeup, extends lashes, and sculpts brows to help beautify clients for special occasions. After the crew has worked its magic, resident stylist Latoya steps up to the styling chair. Latoya frames the artwork produced by her compatriots with curls or straightened locks, both of which can be swiftly enhanced by extensions and sew-ins. She uses natural products as often as possible in order to help clients feel as healthy as their locks. And above everything, she welcomes all manner of customers, describing her salon as a ?down-to-earth no-judgment zone.?
Licensed cosmetologist Lauren Payten works wonders with natural hair at Naturally Me, where she specializes in flat twists, locks, sew-ins, and silk presses. However, she also helps clients treat chemically treated hair. They can come to have strands relaxed and eyebrows waxed or receive single-, double-, or triple-process color.
Licensed cosmetologist Tyger McClendon specializes in transforming locks with extensions and layer cutting. She does so with products from brands by Paul Mitchell, Joico, and Nairobi. In addition to styling heads of hair, Tyger also tends to eyebrow hairs with waxing and tinting services, and bolsters lashes with silk extensions.
Licensed nail professional Aisha L. McCaleb and the team at A-Spot Nail Studio give fingers and toes an elegant transformation with custom mani-pedis. Patterned white furnishings provide a sleek counterbalance to the spa?s pink walls, creating an aura of pampering and indulgence that?s mirrored by nail treatments that include hot stones and exfoliating hand and foot scrubs. Nail technicians draw from a spectrum of OPI polish colors at the conclusion of mani-pedis, resulting in nails that look so groomed they can be dunked in a punch bowl without offending other partygoers.
