Walking away from West Coast Hair after hair-extension appointments, patrons can toss silky, newly lengthened manes that would have otherwise taken years to grow. At locations in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, stylists apply the extensions using a strand-by-strand technique and fusion-free bonds without damaging glue or chemicals. With proper maintenance, elongated tresses can last up to six months.
Upon entering The Image Creator Salon & Day Spa, clients are greeted by 17 seasoned stylists, each with at least five years of experience. As they cut and color hair, two certified massage therapists attempt to reduce clients’ anxiety with customized massages. Spa packages combine hair, nail, and body treatments to rejuvenate clients without fairy godmothers. After treatments, visitors can peruse a collection of products from brands such as Matrix Biolage, Crew, and Aveda to maintain their new looks at home.
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.
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.
A summer spent swimming laps can be great for your body, but hazardous for your hair. Thankfully, the stylists at Merrill Hair Designers, Inc. strive to heal damaged strands with chlorine- and mineral-removal treatments that restore hair's resilience and shine. Working with a fresh slate, the team can then consult with clients to settle on a new look. For instance, a Brazilian Blowout could smooth out frizz for straighter locks, or extensions can add length more efficiently tying barbells to each strand. To help friends find a flattering cut, clients can even throw a group party complete with pastries and beverages.
The salon also offers nail and spa services, from acne-fighting facials to therapeutic massages. Every skincare package, whether it's an oxygen facial with fruit enzymes or a chemical peel, is highly customized to suit specific skin types.
