The team of friendly hair stylists at Danielle's Place knows a thing or two about giving. First and foremost, they give every ounce of effort as they impart hair with vivid highlights, modern style, and shine as noticeable as frost in the desert. When they renovated the salon interior, they gave their workspace an upscale and modern feel that matched the contemporary treatments on their service menu. Hardwood floors underline a décor with elegant rugs, gold light-radiating ceiling fans and sconces, and bright purple walls inside treatment rooms.
For Danielle's staff, the act of giving extends beyond the salon. They strive to give back to the community that supports their business by hosting various charitable events and fundraisers, including a haircut-a-thon for breast cancer.
The term "wedding hair" may conjure images of updos, but that's not all it can mean. Under the care of the Up Do's and Eye Do's team, it can be whatever you want, from half-up, half-down styles to a chic blowout or ringlets for a flower girl. Audrey, the team's lead hair stylist, crafts a diverse array of just such wedding-appropriate hairdos. While she tends to locks, her business partner Cindy—a makeup artist and licensed medical aesthetician—subtly enhances the wedding party's features with products from MAC, Bobbi Brown, and Smashbox.
While the duo's main focus is on weddings, they also style clients for other special occasions and introduce kids to the joys of the spa experience. At their children's birthday parties, little ones get their hair and makeup done and even get to wear clip-in hair extensions, a more practical and temporary hair-extending alternative to wearing hats full of Miracle-Gro.
Catherine Bello finds the solution to stress where others rarely think to look: the bottoms of their feet. She and her team of certified reflexologists manipulate pressure points on the feet that correspond with specific glands, organs, and other body parts in order to promote holistic wellness in their clients. These treatments can address specific ailments from headaches and sinusitis to digestive problems.
Reflexology sessions aren't strictly medical, though. Instead, Sole Revival Reflexology aims to provide a spa experience for clients, offering soothing foot soaks and leg massages as well as a variety of add-on services such as paraffin wax treatments. Foot treatments also incorporate a skincare mask in a variety of scents, including one that will make your soles smell like champagne even if you weren't recently kickboxing at a New Year's Eve party.
Many of the staff members are also nail technicians and provide pedicures with chemical-free polish to complement their reflexology sessions. Others perform the balancing art of Reiki, which involves laying on hands to regulate the body's flow of energy. During all treatments, a spa-like environment aims to enhance their calming work as guests relax surrounded by decorative plants and the sound of quiet, relaxing music.
Set in the same Englewood location for more than 30 years, The Hair Place prides itself on having cut the hair of multiple generations of their clients and on having become a part of the community. The owners believe their laid-back, friendly vibe and the expertise of their licensed stylists inform the salon's longevity. Not only do they boast these essentials, but the staff even speaks several different languages to communicate with a wide range of customers: English, Spanish, French, and HTML5.
They specialize in on-trend haircuts and hair-replacement services, such as bonding, hair extensions, and attachments. The Hair Place's stylists are as comfortable performing a Brazilian straightening treatment as they are streaking sun-kissed highlights into hair. They welcome patrons to sink into cushy leather chairs as they wait for their turn in the styling area of light-filled space.
Chandeliers, a stone-front fireplace, and ornately framed mirrors exude elegance inside Moxie Luxe Salon. Here, crown molding hugs the cream, pale green, and purple walls that surround stylists as they cut and color hair. Other beauty services include organic airbrush tans and teeth whitening, which can give you higher visibility while streaking at night.
If it turns out practice doesn’t make perfect, Ethos Spa’s medical director, Dr. Hardik Soni, will be very disappointed. Dr. Soni, who specializes in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, has performed more than 35,000 laser treatments over the course of his career. At his spa, he works with a team of plastic surgeons and aestheticians to perform even more, turning to laser beams’ power for a variety of purposes: minimizing the visibility of unsightly veins, tightening skin, and soothing acne. The med spa’s services extend beyond laser treatments, too. The team also instills clients with a youthful glow via microdermabrasion, Botox injections, facials, and making them sleep in glow-in-the-dark cribs.
