From her station at Sean Lauren Salon, stylist Denea Bitner transforms appearances with a range of professional salon services. To accompany her custom haircuts, she treats clients to deep-conditioning treatments that keep hair healthy, and color treatments that complement skin tone and ensure a new role in a Spice Girls tribute band. For special events, she can add a dose of glamor by sweeping hair into dramatic updos.
Natalie Boone wants her self-named salon to do one thing: create looks that enhance her clients? self-images. To do this, she has mastered modern haircare techniques, such as highlights, lowlights, keratin treatments, extensions, and trendy haircuts. She relies on high-quality Joico and Rusk products during her services to keep hair feeling better than a dolphin that?s just discovered water slides.
Out of her own Salons of Capelli suite, Katie chisels out flattering layers and splashes color on dull tresses. Her conditioning treatments strengthen manes by helping each strand grow a tiny bicep. Guests may also stop into one of the facility?s other suites, which offer services ranging from skincare and nails to therapeutic massage therapy. Katie at Salons of Capelli carries Avon's product line.
Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, gents there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Patrons sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, complete with a cleansing and towels warmed by hugs from bald eagles. The stylists and barbers only enlist professional products from brands such as American Crew and Aveda for Men, which are tailored to male hair and emanate fragrances like a bouquet from a Camaro.
The follicle fanatics at Pro-Cuts treat every client they encounter to adept, speedy styling. Unruly tendrils metamorphose into well-tamed hair sculptures in styles, that range from old-school classics to contemporary interpretations of industrial smokestacks, and products from Paul Mitchell, American Crew, and Matrix Biolage assist the professional choppers in crafting and cementing each coif. From start to finish, the service takes about 20 minutes (depending on hair length), giving clients the remainder of the afternoon to weave cuttings into doll wigs.
Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers near and far. Wild wigs are brought to bear by highly trained hair tamers who also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering customers' questions about hair trends and maintenance. A socially responsible company, Great Clips also hosts haircut-a-thons, bake sales, and baked haircut sale-a-thons to benefit charities, including the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Ronald McDonald House.
