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.
Luxurious gel manicures and natural-nail makeovers are within arm's reach at Jessica Favre Nails. Here, licensed nail technician Jessica Favre puts her years of experience into practice when sculpting nails and protecting them with durable, glossy Shellac polish. And because she works out of Salon Rhonda, her clients can also stick around for haircuts, highlights, and facial waxing.
Treatments and experiences are one at the same at All Nailed Up by Dana. Take, for instance, the Hawaiian Tropical mani-pedi. Just one of the salon's featured services, it includes an exfoliating sugar scrub and aromatherapuetic mask to accompany the traditional nail care treatments. Other nail treatments here include hot stone massages, warm paraffin applications, and gel manicures.
Ashely, the manager of Zen Lounge, creates a tranquil space for minds to rest while she works on beautifying bodies. She specializes in skin and nail treatments, creating elaborate nail art with a steady hand, glue, and a variety of mini-accessories. She also performs full-body massages, ideal for disposing of the day's tensions or getting relief from chronic pain.
