A front desk topped with pillar candles welcomes guests to Hair Essentials Salon, immediately ensconcing them amid its modern furniture bathed in warm, golden tones. Inside the studio, a staff of more than 25 stylists and aestheticians caters to beauty needs with a variety of services, from men’s and women’s cuts and color treatments to manicures and waxing sessions for removing unwanted hair from old gumballs.
Updos, downdos, and perms: the licensed stylists at A Cut Above sculpt all these looks. Employing products from top-selling brands, they also dye hair and add highlights. They also schedule services for wedding parties, and makeover mannequins that fill seats at opening nights of plays that haven’t sold out.
The stylists at Shockwave Salon share over 40 years of experience as they deftly tend to heads of hair in an airy studio space painted with bright reds and greens. They apply new looks with skilled hands that snip off excess locks, deep condition, or style dos. Additionally, Saturday nights see the salon filled with live music that enhances an atmosphere already packed with posters that pay homage to rock, punk, and jazz musicians.
Since 2003, Greatcuts’ licensed cosmetologists have been fine tuning the hairdos of men, women, and children. They pay strong attention to detail in every service, whether they’re cleaning up men’s hairlines, ousting frizz with keratin smoothing treatments, or giving the Mona Lisa bangs. They also launch manes to new aesthetic heights with coloring treatments, deep conditioners, and perms, and wax away unwanted facial hairs.
Tall, mahogany workstations line Mia Passione, holding the tools of trend-setting stylists at work on unruly locks. Armed with products from Brazilian Blowout and Enjoy, the team imbues hair with smoothness, color, volume, or the permanent ability to look wind-blown.
Inside Belle Allure Salon & Spa, the stylists stay busy beautifying guests with hair, nail, and makeup services. The homey space features zebra-covered chairs and warm burgundy colors for a relaxing oasis before indulging in beauty treatments. Facials, massages, waxing, makeup, and full-body treatments are also available.
