Despite what its modest name suggests, Simply Hair Salon & Beauty Supply does a lot more than hair. Sure, their stylists can sculpt a beautiful and personalized haircut, straighten curls with keratin, or add some extra dimension with highlights. But the team also boasts aestheticians who revitalize skin with facials, sculpt eyebrows, and turn nails into tiny pieces of art during mani-pedis. Simply Hair's roster of most valuable players also includes a particular inanimate object: candles. When placed in the ear and lit—a process appropriately known as ear candling—they can potentially treat ear problems and annoying issues, such as allergies or a weird voice that only seems to speak during the finale of TV shows. On special occasions, the salon opens its doors to host stylish events. In the past, this has included showcasing the fashionable jeans of Lavender Blues and Vault Denim.
Creations Salon owner Lynnell Darby leads a staff of experienced stylists in cutting, coloring, and coiffing tresses with acclaimed salon products that include Paul Mitchell and Pureology. Clients kick back and savor a complimentary beverage as their hair basks in deep hydration alongside skin-flattering color or dimension-boosting highlights before the strand sculpting begins. Unlike the copycat styles and unyielding salad bowls used in a typical salon, Creations' stylists approach each head of tresses as a unique canvas, taking both fashion trends and individual face shape into account to forge a one-of-a-kind style.
The relaxation experts at Studio 12 Urban Day Spa pamper their clients from head to toe. Their services include cleansing facials, exfoliating foot massages, moisturizing body polishes, and swift facial waxes. They incorporate organic products from brands such as Dawn Lorraine into their soothing treatments and offer express services for those in a rush or on the lam.
Joseph’s Hair Designs ensures its stylists stay au courant with the latest techniques for crafting chic new looks to flatter all kinds of faces. Attentive stylist Ashlee begins with a consultation to assess her clients' most fondly held hairstyle wishes before cleansing tresses and artfully shaping overgrown locks into keratin-based masterpieces ($18 for men; $30 for women). Joseph’s mane tamers employ Enzo Bonaffini's Bloom Shear, an exclusive three-bladed scissor that gives tresses a fashionable straight-razor sheared look while decreasing time spent on blowouts and otherwise forcing hair to say uncle. Clients may schedule any additional treatments, including color, weave, or blow-dry services, at a 15% discount, ensuring hair looks its best for your world-record attempt at longest french-braiding conga line.
Skin specialist Kamal helps revive waning complexions through microdermabrasion, which uses a wand to gently spray the epidermal stratums with fine crystals and suction away expired skin cells. This intensive, noninvasive facial deploys a minute army of mild abrasives to repair the damage inflicted by acne, solar rays, and errantly thrown medicine balls. The pain-free procedure typically lasts a brisk half-hour and can substantially improve large pores, light scarring, age spots, and several other types of skin blemishes. After the treatment, clients leave Skincare by Kamal sporting even-toned faces that are smooth to the touch.
At The Nail Place's digit masters retouch nails in private suites, applying long-lasting manicure and pedicure treatments over the course of two hours. During the no-chip manicure, gel and vibrant polish is lamp-baked into a finger ornament that is both vivid and long lasting, much like the memory of seeing an elderly professor eat an entire football. Neither the cruel slaps of closing doors nor the scratches of glancing blowdarts will dent or scratch the no-chip manicure once applied. After feet receive a full cuticle and nail pruning, they can luxuriate with a soothing, thorough sole massage and clean themselves with the nail buffer and file provided to all clients.
