Owner Carol Carey regularly travels to London, Paris, and Milan to snatch up the latest in beauty trends and techniques which she quickly totes back to her salon, a chic beauty haven boasting a lengthy menu of hair, skin, and nail services. Bound by a strong culture of creativity, the dedicated staff of experienced stylists, manicurists, aestheticians, and massage therapists consult with clients to determine their aesthetic needs. They then carefully and skillfully execute the requested service, from anti-aging facials to hydrating manicures.
A reflection of Manhattan-style lofts can be seen in the spacious salon?s exposed-brick walls, high-vaulted ceilings, and suspended hair dryers, each an element that Carey fell in love with while studying hair coloring in New York. The contemporary retreat also boasts a row of European-style shampoo bowls, which give stylists 360 degree access to suds up manes with shampoo and Perrier, while advanced hair dryers blow-out heat from three angles for a faster processing time.
The team at Stunners n Smashers Spalon operates under the mantra that not everyone?s hair is the same. So they make sure to begin each appointment with a thorough consultation in order to determine the best style for each individual client. From there, the team of stylists is capable of most anything: beyond cut and color treatments (including color correction) they can manipulate texture with Pravana and Brazilian blowouts, or create length with extensions and witchcraft. They also apply faux hair in six ways, including via heat-free protein bonds, braiding, or sewing.
Stylists Karey and Brandy pride themselves on giving each salon visitor personalized attention. Every client is different, they say, not only in regard to hair type and style goals, but also in how much time they can spend on their hair routine in the morning. Both stylists, therefore, carefully customize their services to the lifestyles and tastes of their clients. To complete their new look, guests can opt for a Fantasy Tan airbrush tan, which graces skin with a sun-free bronze glow.
The colors within the interior of Designer Cuts are bold and inspiring: flame orange paired with mustard yellow and stark blacks and whites. But the decor pales in comparison to the radiant colors on the heads of those leaving the salon with a new do. The stylists offer a wide variety of services, ranging from hair-coloring services, cuts, and styling to eyelash extensions and brow sculpting.
