At LifeSpa Salon—an oasis of calm inside a bustling workout center—an experienced stylist kicks off split-end snipping with a consultation to personalize trims. Patrons with overgrown mops may opt for the standalone haircut, which scrubs heads with a thorough shampoo before a meeting with a phalanx of humming scissors. In the men’s cut, a hot-towel treatment ensues, easing tension and opening pores with layers of heated terry cloth. Skilled tendril wranglers style women’s coiffures into chic masterpieces that grant the sleek confidence to attend a porpoise’s cocktail party.
Jung Ja International Salon and Spa, an Aveda concept salon, offers relaxing treatments with Aveda haircare, skincare, and bodycare products to help customers feel serene and beautiful. Stylists can apply an Aveda conditioning formula to hair, or add a hint of color with highlights instead of dropping customers off in the middle of a paintball arena. The spa’s massage therapists knead clients from head to toe using Aveda stress-relieving scalp treatments, aromatherapy, and hot stones.
From within The Hair Districts’ colorful environs, stylist Kristina Ogren trims and arranges strands into artful coifs. She can also lighten ‘dos with partial or full highlights, and tame frizz with Brazilian Blowouts.
Owners Tracy Kuss and Christy Strand-Kolb share a passion for hairstyling, and they channeled that excitement into opening VanStrand Hair Salon in 2001. Their mission was to create a salon that provided high-quality haircuts, perms, and waxing treatments at reasonable prices. Creating a friendly place to visit and socialize was equally important to them, and today the two love how their salon gives them an opportunity to meet new people and establish relationships with return clients. To keep the vibe upbeat and fun, Tracy and Christy surround themselves with a team of equally passionate, talented, and amicable hair sculptors. Pairing their skills with top-shelf products such as American Crew and Phyto Organics, the stylists stick to their high standards and leave their customers with ‘dos as stylish and sleek as a Ferrari dressed in Versace.
At Salon Amore, stylists complement transformative hair, nail, and body treatments with personal attention and modern sensibilities. Products such as Kenra and Pureology cameo in stylistic overhauls as hairdressers trim and shape strands into glamorous hairdos and highlight strands like a college student reading Cliff's Notes. More extensive treatments, such as keratin smoothing care and hair extensions, round out the salon menu, and spa services such as facials, nailcare, and massages invite age-defying specialists to drop their magic below the forehead and give the entire body a stunning glow. The salon also hosts an in-shop boutique with an eclectic assortment of jewelry, lotions, gifts, and decor items.
The seven cosmetologists at JB Cavour Salon Spa wield more than a century's combined experience in the beauty business, as well as an arsenal of botanical Aveda products. Now in its second generation of family ownership, the recently renovated sanctuary keeps a healthy stream of “ahhs” flowing out the big bay window with luxurious massage, skincare, and hair services.
