William Henry Salon boasts more than 60 years of tress-trimming expertise. Stylists perform a slew of hair-helping services for men ($17+), women ($30+), kids ($15+, aged 10 and under), and lifelike Chia Pets, all with the aid of upscale products from Redken and Pureology. The salon wields a line of fancy follicle fixes such as the frizz-banishing keratin treatment, which smoothes strands and varies in cost depending on hair length and density ($200+). Visitors can also opt to transform looks with all-over color ($70+), a wave-making treatment ($70+), or a classy updo, perfect for summer weddings, graduations, or black-tie pig pickings ($45+).
Students at Paul Mitchell the School Gastonia learn techniques cultivated by the widely acclaimed brand that has received many honors, including mentions in Esquire, Seventeen, and Allure magazines. The school’s pupils beautify clients with a host of services, including haircuts, color treatments, perms, and updos that match the ice sculptures you saw at your cousin’s wedding.
The stylists at Salon Indigo boast myriad trainings, including Paul Mitchell Academy, Di Biase hair extensions, Brazilian Blowouts, and coloring techniques. The full-service salon joins the stylists with a staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, massage therapists, and face painters.
Four of Fuze Salon's stylists have more than a decade of experience, and Artistic Director Chip Perry has spent more than two decades in the business. Perry spent time as a national performing artist for Redken and specialized in teaching corrective color at the Redken Exchange, so it’s no surprise the salon uses ammonia-free Redken Chromatics dye as its go-to. Like Fievel Mousekewitz, his journey to happiness began with petty theft. His online biography describes how he would commandeer his neighbors' dolls as a child and "spend hours trying to twist the two inches of fiber into different shapes.” Now, he styles brides and men's cuts with equal dexterity, and keeps his hands busy raising two dogs, contributing to the boards of two charitable organizations, and rallying the community around philanthropic drives and walks.
Mounted over the repurposed home's entrance, a large American flag patriotically waves above a vibrant floral bed and pillared porch. However, after walking through the bright-red front door, guests discover a European-inspired spa staffed by skilled and licensed stylists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians. Using exclusive skin- and haircare products—by brands including Pevonia Botanica and Bumble and bumble—Carmel Day Spa & Salon's specialists pamper guests with services ranging from haircuts to facials to massages. Sleek monochrome furniture and fixtures populate the salon area and treatment rooms, whose walls feature various pieces of art used to conceal wall safes filled with Monopoly money.
Anne Pipkin was once a loyal customer of gorgeousGLO. But she loved the spray-tanning salon so much that she couldn't resist becoming the owner. In that capacity, Pipkin joins with her fellow staff members to share their studio's natural spray-tanning formula with their clients. They help tanners achieve bronzed hues without the incurring harmful effects of UV rays or painstakingly coloring themselves in gold crayon. Alternatively, an on-site blowout center tops off tan looks with sleekly styled coifs. Blowouts, updos, and conditioning treatments prepare locks for special events including prom, weddings, and engagement parties.
