After 10 years of snipping and styling locks, Hair Kingdom's staff remains convinced that your cut should reflect your character. To ensure that each trim and coloring service is in tune with their client's personality, the style experts start every appointment with a consultation, discussing daily habits, personal hobbies, and aesthetic tastes. Armed with a concrete idea and mousse statuette of a desired look, they then start snipping away.
Though the experienced staff members handle updos and multidimensional color treatments with finesse, they can also paint nails and wax brows for a well-rounded makeover. Their cosmetic artistry can benefit charity if guests choose to shed 8 inches of hair, which the salon donates to Locks of Love through its complimentary program.
Five-time Best of Chesapeake Gold?winner Ron Paul Salon & Day Spa enlivens weary faces with a wealth of rejuvenating skincare services. Perfect for a lunchtime appointment, the express facial treats pores to a customized cleansing complete with a mask and moisturizer application. The microdermabrasion delves deeper to exfoliate layers of dead skin and reveal fresher strata underneath. This diamond-tipped scrub-down is most effective in a series of five to eight sessions, and can help reduce superficial wrinkles, uneven texture, and the ennui that attends not being asked for ID.
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.
The seasoned stylists at Options Hairstyling Inc. polish exteriors from the top of the head to the tip of the toe with a full menu of hair, nail, and waxing services. Stylists pull products from Bed Head, Matrix, and Sebastian as they snip locks into chic cuts, sweep them into elegant updos, or bestow dimension in the form of full or partial foil highlights. Vegetable dye safely tints brows and lashes to add deep drama that won't run in the pool or ruin eyes' waistlines, and Mirabella Beauty mineral-based pigments allow the salon's makeup artists to control color and coverage as they lead lessons in perfect application. Alongside shelves stocked with retail styling products, the salon also displays an array of homemade hair accessories and costume jewelry fashioned by artisan crafters, helping customers find the perfect finishing touches for their fresh new looks.
