When Lolamax Salon’s stylists first lay eyes on new clients, they’re concerned with more than just the state of their hair. They scan each new face, searching for the cuts and styles that will best flatter those features. They also inquire about clients’ lifestyles—can they devote an hour to hair prep every morning, or do they need something that’s wash-and-wear? It’s not until stylists have their answers that they finally pick up their scissors and begin.
Hair appointments kick off with a relaxing scalp massage powered by Aveda shampoos and conditioners before stylists leads clients to the salon chair for a chic cut, a Goldwell color treatment, or a keratin smoothing treatment. Men can conceal grays or color over bald spots with Reshade hair color that lasts for up to eight weeks; women can sit back as their stylist weaves locks with Great Lengths hair extensions. Aside from styling hair, the Lolamax staff offers brow and lash tints and removes unwanted fuzz from the eyebrows and upper lip.
Erika, Shear Success's owner, and her skilled team of stylists tend to the locks of men, women, and kids with a diverse menu of services in a salon whose goal is to both enhance clients' natural beauty and grant them a brief reprieve from their hectic lives. The mane mavens massage professional products from brands such as Kevin Murphy, American Crew, and Kenra into scalps while offering patrons refreshments as they unwind in private styling areas. Here, warmly hued partitions separate chairs from neighboring stylists, allowing customers to freely trade lasagna recipes with their stylist without fear of being overheard.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
With salon and spa services that range from haircuts to pedicures, the team at Max Salon and Spa pampers patrons literally from head to toe.

Meanwhile, every plant peel, green science facial, and MAX signature facial starts with a personalized skin analysis, resulting in a treatment as one-of-a-kind as a monogrammed snowflake.
