Stylist Delaney Sinclair invites customers to Salon Bliss, where she tends to heads of hair with salon services. She deftly snips and styles new, eye-catching ’dos, complete with blow-dry services. She also augments heads with bursts of color via partial highlights, full highlights, or full color treatments.
Style constructers at T. Fox Salon specialize in custom coloring and cuts crafted to the exact specifications of each client's vision. Both men's and women's haircuts begin with a shampoo to free strands of dirt and oil and wash away the mischievous scalp-dwelling civilizations responsible for the common bedhead. Scissor-wielders then get to work crafting peerless coiffures to complement faces and personalities. Women's cuts culminate with a Redken shine treatment, which results in a degree of gleaming brilliance usually reserved for the inhabitants of the U.S. Mint's storied gold caves. Those who opt for highlights get up to 14 thought-illuminating foils, strategically placed throughout the head to produce sun-smooched natural-looking results.
Jim Ostrosky, erstwhile fashion consultant for the local Fox affiliate and fashion writer for the Birmingham News, now brings his eye for texture and color to bear on the manes of clients at his intimate home salon. More than three decades in the industry inform his oversight of a team of stylists who wield organic products from Aveda instead of threatening hair into obedience with vats of liquid nitrogen. As they craft new 'dos, the stylists employ advanced techniques such as halo brick and paneling to create highlights or keratin smoothing treatments to banish frizz. In addition to snipping locks into classic coiffures, the professionals delve into new styles and trends, such as fusion and micro link hair extensions.
Hair Crew International is an upscale salon that provides a slew of strand-shaping services to men, women, and children. Skilled stylists will maintain manly manes with a men’s haircut ($14.95) or clip kids' hair into aerodynamic ’dos so they can sprint faster in wind tunnels ($10).
Specializing in all things hair, Mindi Patterson relies on her Aveda Institute training and years of experience when snipping and coloring her clients' locks. At Little Flower Day Spa, Patterson attends to each visitor, beginning with a personal consultation to discuss style, color, and the contents of their fridge. Additionally, Patterson offers skincare and makeup-application lessons, using products from BeautiControl.
