Crystal Bramer started her career early, taking cosmetology classes during high school. After graduating with honors, she sharpened her skills at two salons before striking out on her own. Now she pours more than a decade of experience into each mane and enlists the help of products such as CHI, Joico, and American Crew. Crystal specializes in coloring and Cinderella hair extensions, but her menu also includes cuts, keratin treatments, and perms. When she isn't shaping brows or twisting tendrils into formal updos, she attends classes and hair shows to stay current on latest trends.
The staffers at Aloe Loft Salon believe that steam can do much more than just relax the body. Their saunas boast a blend of warm water vapor, clay, and other natural ingredients, which aim to rid bodies of toxins and mineral waste, and can even increase arthritis patients' range of motion. The sessions also work to enhance metabolisms and burn calories without requiring clients to resort to archaic methods of slimming down, like bench-pressing a mastodon.
But steam is just one tool in the spa's arsenal. As a full salon, the stylists revamp 'dos with cuts and coloring services, as well as thermal straightening treatments to tame unruly hair.
With more than 10 years of experience between her scissor blades, stylist Stephanie Mahone has learned how to help clients achieve a full spectrum of looks. On the one hand, she delights in doling out down-to-earth trims; on the other, she can sometimes get a little creative. Clients who entrust their locks into her hands might walk away with anything from a chic bob or a wholly new face-framing style with bold color that edges toward the experimental. It's all up to what the client is looking for, which Stephanie establishes first thing during a consultation.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissors-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week.
Perfect Image's salon services refresh coiffeurs of every kind and its spa ministrations bring new vim to tired skin. The strand sorcerers on staff consult with clients before shampooing, snipping, and blow-drying their locks into coiffured majesty ($37+). When hair is unwelcome at the body party, aestheticians will kick it to the curb after meticulously daubing warm azulene body wax around eyebrows ($13), lips ($10), underarms ($20), and other areas seeking follicle liberation. Meanwhile, indulgent hides can pour over Perfect Image's extensive list of facial treatments including the Eclat Cocoon facial, which—like a paranoid umpire—swaddles visages in a double mask before unveiling refreshed skin ($85).
