Derived from an Italian phrase that means trendy, Di Moda Salons cultivates a contemporary ambiance to reflect the work of its stylists. Di Moda has all the services you'd expect to find at a salon—cuts, highlights, and blowouts. But a flattering do often hinges on subtleties, such as the salon's undercuts, peekaboo highlights, and expertly applied relaxers. When stylists aren't primping natural tresses, they're adding volume and length with hair extensions, which come in natural shades and temporary accent colors. Clients complete their looks with waxing, sunless tanning, eyelash extensions, and makeup applications.
Stacie Spears has learned plenty in her 10 years as an aesthetician. She specializes in brows and Brazilian waxes, but one of her marquee services is the four-layer facial, a nourishing regimen of European seaweed that makes the skin glow like Edison's mother when she first heard about her son's invention. At Salon Loft, she offers this specialty, as well as numerous other facials, waxing services, and custom spray tans. She's also a makeup artist who founded her own company, meaning she's trained to amplify beauty from the deepest pore to the outermost layer of blush.
Michelangelo once said, “Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” That's what licensed aesthetician Kayla Bernthold does every time she evaluates a client's skin—she aims to bring out his or her natural, unique beauty. In addition to her intense study of diamond-microdermabrasion techniques, she beautifies skin with a menu of services that include facials, chemical peels, waxing, and makeup application.
After moving several times, unable to find the right environment where she felt she could maximize her potential in the art of hair, Kayla Graves found herself at Blake Rose Salon & Spa. The Aveda Institute graduate is a master in her field, working closely with her clients to determine not just what they want, but also what will work best for their lifestyles and hair textures. Visitors in her chair can expect precision cuts as well as color, blow-outs, and brand-new styles.
Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
After sinking into the styling chair at J Caldwell Studio, clients can put their minds on autopilot as stylist and salon namesake Jason Caldwell skillfully lops off split ends and invigorates looks. He glazes frizz-cursed strands with two types of keratin treatments, each packed with enough protein to repair cuticles and fuel a lioness for three months in the Sahara. Aside from fashioning locks, Jason also gussies up eyes and lips with full makeup applications using products from Smashbox, M.A.C., and Mirabella.
