Warm, earthy tones enhance the welcoming atmosphere at Allure Grand Salon, where hairstylists, nail techs, and a massage therapist pamper a diverse clientele. The team of eight stylists offers a wide range of services, including precision and razor cuts, vibrant highlights and multidimensional color, and sew-in weaves. For clients looking to change the texture of their hair, stylists provide smoothing keratin treatments and relaxers, as well as curl-creating perms. The team also offers twist outs, roller sets, and hot-oil treatments for natural hair. Allure's duo of nail techs treat hands and feet with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and gel manicures complete with nail art. To round out the pampering, the salon's massage therapist calms clients with soothing aromatherapy scents and deep-tissue pressure.
No head of hair is the same to the stylists at Naama Salon & Day Spa—each requires its own customized treatment. For women, those range from perms and cropped cuts to designs inspired by rock star mohawks. Even more complicated 'dos, like dreadlocks, are fair game to the Naama team, which can deftly re-twist or restyle dreads. Using L'anza Healing Haircare products, stylists can also brighten hair with highlights and color or soften tresses with L'anza's customized five-step deep-conditioning treatment. Besides haircare, the Naama team specializes in removing unwanted hair with waxing or rejuvenating skin with exfoliating peels, including Vitamin C and pumpkin varieties.
The staffers at Aloe Loft Salon believe that steam can do much more than just relax the body. Their saunas boast a blend of warm water vapor, clay, and other natural ingredients, which aim to rid bodies of toxins and mineral waste, and can even increase arthritis patients' range of motion. The sessions also work to enhance metabolisms and burn calories without requiring clients to resort to archaic methods of slimming down, like bench-pressing a mastodon.
But steam is just one tool in the spa's arsenal. As a full salon, the stylists revamp 'dos with cuts and coloring services, as well as thermal straightening treatments to tame unruly hair.
As soon as you take a seat in Ellen Young's salon chair, you have the seasoned stylist's undivided attention. She asks about desired looks and personal style, while examining locks to ascertain hair-type. Once the two of you have settled on a style goal, Ellen sets to work gracefully snipping up a sleek new look or mixing up professional products for a color application. She treats damaged manes with conditioning treatments, slaking thirsty hair with hydration while smoothing frizz and strengthening hair by a factor of +3 Rapunzels.
