Owner and lead stylist Eva Harris leads a talented team of stylists and aestheticians at The Beauty Lounge. The salon?s modern and comfortable atmosphere draws clients inside?just like a high-powered people magnet. Once there, guests enjoy complimentary beverages as staffers cut and color hair, straighten strands with blowouts, restore damaged hair with conditioning treatments, and pamper appendages with manicures and pedicures. The Beauty Salon also has a well-versed specialist on staff who performs professional makeup services, spray tans, and waxing treatments.
Eyes by India first opened its doors in Indiana to provide threading as an alternative to waxing. Threading is more precise than waxing and causes less pain, redness, and burning when removing unwanted fuzz. Now with nine locations in two states, Eyes by India’s staff of specialists completes more than 100 hours of training in threading and service etiquette before applying those skills to patrons’ faces at work and image-conscious teddy bears at home. During appointments, cotton thread twists over hair, tweaking hairlines and brow lines or removing all traces of fuzz on the neck, chin, or upper lip.
The decor at La Dolce Salon & Spa recalls a European country villa with yellow sponge-painted walls and tall arched porticos. Elegant wall sconces further promote relaxation as stylists transform tresses with deft scissor choreography and products from J. Beverly Hills. Clients may retreat to a private room for a custom massage or a noninvasive laser hair-removal session with the salon's Cutera laser technology. All in all, La Dolce offers more than 50 beautifying services, ranging from facials and lash extensions to signature mani-pedis with OPI polish.
Oversize folding fans and floral-print umbrellas hang from About Mei’s ceiling and walls, creating the impression of an Asian oasis in which guests may relax while stylists beautify their hair with cuts, highlights, and perms. The menu of services doesn’t stop at the scalp; staffers also enhance complexions with touches of makeup and remove fuzz from lips and chins with warm wax. While waiting for a treatment, relax on an ottoman in the reception area, where paper lanterns hang from the ceiling and dispense candy when hit at certain angles.
For those days when clients need to look their best, they come to Stephanie Baker, who subtly enhances beauty for events such as weddings and prom. Stephanie twists hair into fashionable updos and surrounds faces with romantic, tousled curls before hand-applying Lavish Lash eyelash extensions and perfecting skin with airbrush makeup. She boasts training in both hand and airbrush makeup application and can teach her clients how to apply powders and colors at home without using a single thing from the spice rack.
A waiting room filled with Asian-inspired decor and cushy garnet-colored pillows lends a serene vibe to Sphynx Spa's location at The Ginkgo Tree, while a beach theme soothes clients at the Broad Ripple location. The relaxation only increases during services, when aestheticians remove hair with warm wax, nourish skin with facials, and enhance features with lash and brow tinting.
