At Sassy Salon & Spa, the staff transforms exteriors with styling products from brands such as Moroccanoil, TIGI, and Redken—as well as OPI polishes and Mirabella makeup. Stylists snip and style strands into flattering formations, while massage therapists spirit clients back to a moss-toned, private room for Swedish, deep-tissue, or sports massages. Hanging drum lights spill a warm glow over the gleaming hardwood floor as guests admire their increasingly beautiful reflections in the full-length, ornately framed mirrors. In the lobby, a stylish black-and-white armless chair sits in contrast against exposed brick walls.
Salon Fusion's experienced styling team and array of custom hair services has earned the salon a place on Virginian-Pilot's Best of Chesapeake lists every year since 2009. Inside the Paul Mitchell signature salon, a row of salmon-colored chairs hosts clients as stylists snip away at their locks in front of wood-frame mirrors. Each treatment, from color retouching and highlights to conditioning treatments or spiral perms, is customized to suit each client's personal style, facial features, and humidity level.
Often when an eyebrow threader removes unwanted brow hair, they hold one end of the cotton thread in their mouth. But at Wow Brows!, threaders actually tie the thread around their neck, a technique that has been deemed by threading regulators in North Carolina to be more sanitary. In addition to shaping brows without disturbing the topmost layer of skin, hair-removal experts banish fuzz from all over the face.
Twist Salon's mane mavens restore luster and hue to dulled 'dos with a Sebastian cellophane color gloss treatment (a $70 value). Once guests choose a shade from nine different translucent offerings, a seasoned staffer will baste hair with the ammonia- and peroxide-free gloss, bolstering cranium shine or temporarily altering hair tone without having to soak it in leftover Easter egg dye. This procedure also protects skull strands from salt water, chlorinated water, and the harsh heckling of the summer sun. Afterward, an expertly executed blowout wicks away loitering water beads and sets styles more effectively than gel or a staple gun.
Within each of Reed Manning Salon & Spa's colorful, calming oases, skilled aestheticians work diligently to revitalize appendages and foster relaxation. After seating patrons at cozy pedicure stations set against a charming beach-scene backdrop, specialists treat fatigued feet to the 45-minute classic pedicure, which includes a light filing, shaping, buffing, cuticle treatment, and more. The 30-minute classic manicure similarly nurtures table-tappers and rounds out serrated scissorhands, concluding with a fresh coat of polish in either the hue of your choice or the hue of a trusted tarot reader's choice.
