Kelly Rae leads the trio of staff members at her namesake salon, inspiring the whole crew with her advanced Paul Mitchell color training and cutting skills. Accompanied by fellow stylist Lesley Darling, both transform their clients' coifs with highlights, keratin smoothing treatments, and formal hairstyles. Nail tech Tina Mone, who's been beautifying hands for more than 10 years, applies chip-resistant Shellac and Gelish polishes as well as soothes palms with aromatherapy massages that relieve tension after high-fiving competitions. The salon also sells hand-painted wine and martini glasses, helping clients to continue to treat themselves once at home.
Head Games's talented team of aesthetic architects dresses elegant physiques and head tops. Today’s deal grants a hair-styling session ($45) at the hands of Kirsten Hellert, an independent hair designer who specializes in men’s and women’s hair shaping, as well as coloring and formal hair design. After briefly discussing their mane-management plans with Kirsten, clients can relax while she molds their skull coverings into fashionably new shapes or applies partial highlights ($55) to color their follicles hues of their choosing, such as green and brown to match full-body camouflage tattoos that make it easy to be seen in the middle of all-white office kitchens.
The licensed and certified cosmetologists at Bella Moda Hair & Nail Salon artfully construct men?s, women?s, and children?s hairstyles and refurbish nails inside a brown-and-blue-hued salon. An arched walkway with columns welcomes visitors into one of the spacious workstations, where skilled stylists douse heads with Bed Head products during signature cuts, color services, or formal stylings. Men's cuts can be complemented with hot shaves and scalp-therapy treatments, and utilize products from American Crew.
Keratin and BioIonic hair treatments chemically unfurl curls and tame frizz for uncompromisingly smooth, glossy locks, and perms and spirals perk up limp tresses. Cosmetologists also cater to unwanted hair on facial or body terrain with waxing services. Inside the nail salon, technicians render uneven digit-enders into smooth, geometrically sound shapes before laying on a coat of vibrant polish or creating self-portraits with freehand nail art.
Danielle Klahr and her staff of licensed cosmetologists improve clients’ confidence not only with haircare services and nail artistry but also with beauty education and personal coaching. The beauty specialists teach such tricks as how to maintain a new hairstyle or recreate a dramatic or subtle makeup look at home. They also offer educational workshops, such as Makeup Tips for Teens and Flat-Ironing Your Horse’s Mane. During personal coaching, life coach Danielle helps women achieve their goals for both beauty and otherwise.
Using Amazing Nail Concepts products, technician Danny clips, files, and buffs nails in preparation for a finale of bold polish. His manicures and pedicures are enhanced with eye-catching artistic designs, including polka dots, stripes, and a detailed map of the interstate highway system.
Professional nail tech Darci at Nails by Darci at Josephoria Salon & Spa helps clients sport flashier fingers and toes with a vast array of manicure and pedicure services. During the 45-minute express mani-pedi, Darci trims talons, corrals cuticles, and buffs jagged edges to leave appendage tips as smooth as a jazz singer’s rain boots. Hardworking paws searching for more comprehensive pampering can opt for the 60–75 minute spa mani-pedi, which deeply hydrates and de-stresses mitts with a hand butter lotion and massage. After tootises soak in a hot, soothing bath, a sea-salt scrub works to banish coarse spots and freeloading rubber duckies. A deep dermal wrap for hands and feet infuses extremities with comfrey root extract to promote cell regeneration. To cap off both services, Darci daubs nails with a vibrant hue that wins style points during dates, interviews, or competitive scratch-and-sniff competitions.
