The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
What does it take to earn the title of AVEDA Lifestyle Salon Spa? A long list of criteria must be met, but many of the factors come down to one thing: education. For the team at Von Kekel, that means training with Global Masters at Aveda Institutes in London, New York, Minneapolis, and other cities across the world. At these institutes, the staff learns how to get the most out of Aveda's proprietary line of eco-friendly products, which derive 97% of their ingredients from plants.
All of that preparation occurs long before a client ever steps into one of Von Kekel's three locations. Here, the staffers administer salon and spa treatments with the essential oils and natural herbal ingredients of Aveda products. Whether for a haircut with highlights or a cleansing facial with a massage, each visit starts with a complimentary beverage and a consultation. The latter ensures clients get the most out of their chosen treatments, while the former helps meet the daily requirement for liquid-based relaxation.

EPO Beauty?formerly Lovely Lashes?is located inside a private room within CoArt Hair Studio, where certified eyelash expert Sonya Chi applies premium faux lashes with tremendous attention to detail honed across 13 years in the beauty industry. After training and earning her hairstyling license in Chicago, Chi rode Windy City gusts all the way to North Carolina, carrying with her a passion for unveiling and enhancing her clients' inherent beauty. Choosing from a large selection of synthetic and silk lashes of various lengths and widths, Chi carefully adds volume and drama to lids using the technique (individual, stacking, or bridging) that best suits each client's needs. Since extensions are typically shed with the natural lash, Chi recommends touchups to help extend the life of enhanced lash lines and to keep eye fringe looking full and healthy until lids blossom again in the spring. Chi directs her expertise above eye-level as well, consulting with clients in search of wigs and wig-styling advice.
