As the winners of Fox 8 Hot List's award for Best Hair Salon in 2013, Embrace Salon and Spa's staff of skilled aestheticians, hairstylists, massage therapists, and nail technicians take time to build relationships with clients while helping them achieve their beauty goals. Stylists refresh the follicles of men, women, and children with Aquage, Matrix Logics, and KMS California haircare products as well as Goldwell color and Mizani hair relaxers. In the spa area, guests can get their face softened with an exfoliating pumice-peel microdermabrasion or a Bioelements facial. Those opting for a sunless spray tan can maintain new hues with the spa?s collection of Amber Sun tan-extending lotions and Kahuna Bay Tan?touchup products.
The staff of Embrace Salon and Spa aim to create a homey atmosphere in their modern space that will help their clients relax. Vibrant purple walls in the pedicure room and a bright blue wall with a mural of a tree's silhouette in the salon area help keep visitors awake during treatments, but in case they do fall asleep, these splashes of color ensure Technicolor dreams.
Helmed by Sherry Slaght and Sara Boytim, both Redken certified and boasting more than 44 years in the industry, Impres' Salon provides a full menu of salon and spa services. With a level one, two, or three mani-pedi, you'll get gorgeous fingers and toes that will glow like a flashlight covered in mercury. Levels one, two, and three do not vary in terms of the service offered but indicate the breadth of the nail technician's clientele base (pricing is based on level-one services). A level-one technician may have years of experience but be new to the area and have few clients to pamper or discuss irrigation strategies with. Whatever level you choose, you'll sit back and relax while your feet are soaked in pipe-free pedicure bowls that drain water completely for a fresh and clean aqua massage. Gentle exfoliation digs deep beneath dermal strata to reveal supple skin. With the keratin canvas thoroughly prepped, a nail-polish masterpiece can be executed in an array of colors.
Sensitive nostrils are safe at the fume-free Dolce Organic Salon, where no ammonia, plastics, sulfates, or parabens are allowed. Instead, stylists use cruelty-free Organic Color Systems hues and other organic products to color and style the hair they cut. Other types of treatments are just as gentle: instead of wax or a lawnmower, aestheticians remove hair with an antibacterial, antimicrobial potion. Extensions lengthen hair and lashes alike, and makeup artists play up clients’ favorite features.
Dolce’s serene space harmonizes with the salon’s philosophy that earthiness doesn’t mean forgoing stylishness. Ribbons of mosaic cut a curving path through the stone tiles on the floor, and large-scale paintings of luscious fruit overlook furniture in rich leather and wood tones.
Every client that walks through the doors of Joseph's Hair and Nail Salon receives top pampering from stylists and nail technicians with a full assortment of beautifying services. Clients can catch the eye of the town eagle with strategically placed feather extensions, or revamp manes with a full color change. Further above-the-neck beautifying includes fluttering eyelash extensions and makeup applications. Nail technicians top keratin sheets with chip-resistant shellac polish or acrylic nails and can add extra flare with nail art such as tiny stars, stripes, or American flags.
Gold-framed mirrors and zebra-printed chairs add pops of color to Salon Bella Vie’s understated color scheme with muted gray walls and wooden floors. It’s the place stylist Nicole calls her second home, a workstation with a sleek salon chair where men, women, and children sit during cuts, highlights, and games of I Spy.
At Déjà Vu Laser & Medical Spa, skilled aestheticians smoothen mugs rumpled by acne or aging with microdermabrasion treatments for the face and neck. Wielding a stainless-steel wand from the DiamondTome resurfacing system, skin wizards conjure smoother complexions by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and any facial cobwebs to reveal new skin underneath. Each wand's tip boasts diamond chips around a vacuum, sloughing away deadbeat cells while light suction immediately absorbs them. A selection of wands enables aestheticians to customize each treatment for patients' individual needs. Over time, treatments can erode many of the symptoms of aging, from fine lines and acne scarring to hyperpigmentation and "Caesar was here" tattoos.
