When she isn’t taking time to work with her many youth-based organizations, owner Lakiesha Jernagin leads her team of licensed cosmetologists as they help enhance the natural beauty of customers with hairstyling services, nailcare, and facials. The salon is split into two floors, providing plenty of space and privacy for customers. On the first floor, conditioning services repair hair damaged from the sun’s rays or the moon’s disapproving gaze, while cuts and colors update looks to accentuate facial features. Damaged nails regain strength on the second floor, where pedicure chairs and manicure stations reside. Inside private treatment rooms, spa services such as facials and massages ward off tension.
Meander through the sunny rooms of Trenditions Salon, and you can catch a glimpse of stylist Rebecca snipping up a sleek pixie cut or Tara coloring hair in glimmering golden highlights. During football season, you might spot stylist Cheryl adorning locks with bold purple tinsel extensions in honor of the Baltimore Ravens. The trio of seasoned hairdressers bustle across the salon's handsome hardwood and cheerful checkered floors, performing an array of hair services for women, men, and children alike. They smooth frizz with advanced hair-glossing and Japanese straightening treatments, and arrange locks into elegant up-dos for formal events. The versatile beauticians also extend their expertise to facial waxing and transform faces with professional makeup application services—ideal for brides primping for their big days or competitors in very serious games of hide-and-go-seek.
Many different cultures and ethnicities contribute to the tapestry that is America, each with its own traditions and customs. At Eden Salon, stylists embrace all hair types no matter the ethnic background. They specialize in hair services that cater to a wide array of hair textures and types, like curly, kinky or super fine. They can create a natural look, press hair to straight and soft, or add extensions to existing tresses.
This Aveda salon is supervised by Dawn Caldwell and Kristy Heron, who have more than three decades of salon- and spa-industry experience between them. Dawn specializes in hair color, much like a chameleon perched on a Sasquatch's shoulder, and Kristy is a massage therapist, who also wields a master?s in acupuncture to free up disruptive energy blockages. The duo teams up with a staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, and stylists to treat guests to facials, acupuncture, massages, and salon treatments.
The warm glow of wall sconces and crystal chandeliers bathes the earth-hued salon in elegant light, illuminating the team of certified stylists and colorists as they reinvent hairstyles from behind plush styling chairs. They draw from professional name-brand products, such as L?Or?al Professionnel and Moroccanoil, as they perform cuts, colors, and smoothing treatments. Nail techs, meanwhile, lavish digits in decorative polishes as aestheticians shoot for epidermal excellence with facials, makeup applications, and waxing services. Staffers also offer in-house and onsite bridal services, prepping brides-to-be and their life-size cake toppers for the big day.
