Spirit Salon's upscale spa environment houses high-end products, a skilled staff, and a recently remolded pedicure room. A team of stylists cultivates fine coifs during hair services. After administering indulgent manicures and pedicures, nail technicians dollop fingers with CND nail polish or the residual ketchup that never seems to fully come out of those packets. Like a traveling pro-sports team, the salon staff can also take to the road with mobile services. The salon professionals can be booked for weddings, bachelorette parties, or baby showers. At these events, they cut hair, do nails, and even perform facials.
Nestled in the crook of a banister, receptionists greet guests before they ascend the adjacent staircase to Robert Markley Salon Spa, passing a large polished steel pot along the way. The staircase leads to a waiting area furnished with modern armchairs and a Googie-inspired light fixture. Exposed utilitarian ceilings float above a row of minimalistic salon stations with white barber chairs, where stylists perform services such as haircuts and highlights with Aveda products. Spa treatments include facials, massage, and makeup lessons for clients who have had a falling out with their lipstick.
Best friends since high school, the three owners of Hush Salon and Day Spa are always excited to head into work. Pops of bright color add a feminine touch to the open floor plan and exposed-brick walls. Thirteen stylists and aestheticians circle the space, snipping hair into posh bobs, painting nails with bright polishes, or decorating faces with professional makeup. Refreshing facial treatments tailor to skin woes, such as signs of aging and acne, and body wraps cocoon limbs in thermal energy, botanical oils, and natural ingredients, such as rice bran and supernovae.
Synergy Salon & Spa combines a variety of hair, nail, and skin services to ensure its clients are adequately pampered. Beauty pros imbue strands with bold or natural color, and either shear strands into trendy coifs or lengthen locks with extensions. Facials, waxes, and eyelash extensions complete revamped visages, and massages and mani-pedis round out the services. Patrons can easily book their appointments online or by forming a human chain and playing Telephone.
Stylist Drea describes her work as a team effort. Though she'll never hand her clients a pair of scissors, she will make sure that they have a huge say in what happens to their hair. Drea begins appointments with a thorough consultation, getting to know her clients and their hair desires. From there, she uses her styling skill set—a skill set that she constantly improves upon and expands—to shape, color, and texturize hair.
Clients leave Lashes Del Sol with eye-catching eyes thanks to meticulously applied lash extensions customized just for them. Expert technicians use a medical-grade adhesive to attach natural-looking lash extensions one by one to the client's real lashes. The end result is a set of thick, long, and luscious lashes that appear completely authentic. In addition to upgrading the appearance of peepers, extensions make the task of applying mascara a thing of the past.
