Sleek black-leather chairs and black-and-white accents work in fun contrast with High Maintenance Salon's vivid purple accents. Stylists here pride themselves on their friendly, personalized haircare services, which include smoothing relaxers, intricate braids, curly Wave Nouveau treatments, and lengthening sew-in weaves. Haircuts, color treatments, and waxing services are also available.
Banishing hair from bodies is one of Renee King’s talents. The aesthetician specializes in Brazilian and eyebrow waxes at her business, Just for You Salon. Here she also offers cleansing facials, pampering mani-pedis with chip-free gel or Shellac polish, and soothing body wraps.
The stylists at Mitchell's Salon & Day Spa have beautified Cincinnati-area clients for the past 30 years. During that time, the staff has grown to more than 400 employees across five locations. They've also garnered several press mentions, including their most recent victory in The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013. These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.
Nestled between street-level boutiques on the Square, the quaint Hyde Park Salon employs a staff of coif caretakers to revamp hairdos in its exposed-brick and Tiffany-box-blue sanctuary of style. The baseline cut-and-conditioning service transforms outmoded beehives into elegant styles, infusing individual strands with strength and luster. A color retouch preserves shimmering hues, and partial highlights crowns crowns with subtle contrast. Color treatments are performed with Aveda's full spectrum hair color system. This blend of organic botanical oil helps condition hair and delivers beautiful shine and vibrancy.
