Salon Zurell’s stylists start each haircut with an in-depth consultation, and end it with a styling lesson. Using this one-on-one approach, the staff imparts unparalleled wisdom during salon services, which include conditioning treatments, highlights, and perms. The salon also offers spa treatments such as waxing, mani-pedis, and facials performed with organic Éminence products that are completely free of harmful chemicals, additives, and other ingredients that will make dolphins cry.
The Beauty Bar’s continuously educated aesthetic duo of Adriana and Sierra, a makeup artist and stylist, tag teams unwieldy tresses and leaves skin looking sun-smooched with a roster of salon services. Specializing in readying faces for weddings, Sweet 16 parties, and other celebrations, Adriana harnesses the light feel and even finish of airbrushed makeup, imbuing cheeks with a hue as rosy as an embarrassed baby. Alternatively, Sierra styles and colors hair to highlight each client's features and adds length to locks with Fusion hair extensions. Portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe preside over the chandelier-lit styling space, or staff members go mobile, toting their own kits, chair, and lighting to primp at a client's home or in their neighbor's tornado shelter.
Within Salon Couture of Southington, expert salon techs perform beautifying treatments amid red and white accents that recall the hues of peppermint candies and classic barber poles.

They also create flawless faces with airbrush makeup and bronze limbs with airbrush-tanning solutions, enriched with vitamins and antioxidants. For clients seeking relief from tension or toxins, the staffers offer custom massage and facial services, and they can banish unwanted chin hair or Sharpie moustaches with facial-waxing services.
