Dean and Lisa Rodrigue always talked about opening their own salon. In 2010, they took the leap and founded Couture Salon, a chic hair salon with dark hardwood floors and upscale touches like brocade accent walls. Since opening they business, they’ve sharpened their hair-styling skills and broadened their service menu. In addition to waxing and spray-tan treatments, they offer facials and eyelash extensions. Couture Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays to accommodate the moon if it needs a haircut and those with busy work schedules.

The experienced staffers at Serenity Salon & Day Spa each have a different area of expertise. Theresa can apply eyelash extensions or skincare treatments, and her co-owner, Stacy, draws upon training in Redken hair systems to color and pamper locks. Bonnie performs massages in Swedish, reiki, and prenatal modalities. In treatment rooms, the skincare staff rectifies an array of issues, from aging skin to acne to sudoku-puzzle-shaped rashes. All the salon’s stylists have studied at the Redken Exchange, readying them to administer hair services including semipermanent color, braiding, and highlights.
In the waiting room, long exhalations drift from yoga classes, rustling the leaves of potted bamboo plants. Feet slip across the oriental rugs beneath shelves brimming with Dermalogica products and vases the same pink hue as Santa’s socks when he forgets to separate his colored laundry.
A licensed health professional, Tracy Hill Fisher wields a combination of sterile probes and know-how during hair-removal treatments at Electrolysis of Wallingford. During electrolysis sessions, she uses a fine probe to release a burst of energy in hair follicles, destroying both the cells and the follicles' ability to grow new hairs. Electrolysis, which works on all skin and hair types, leaves treated areas across the body and face permanently hair-free and smooth.
Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
Half kids' barbershop, half toy store, Snip Snaps is equally adept at styling haircuts and hosting birthday parties. Kids can pick a fun chair for their trim, choosing from racecars and motorcycles, and then watch TV or pick out a kids' movie from the salon's extensive library. Snip Snaps even has PlayStation 2 plugged in to facilitate hassle-free haircuts. And adults needn’t worry; they can recline on a more traditional salon chair for their own cut and style.
