A unique sense of style permeates The Twisted Bohemian, from the stylists all the way to the salon's walls. The decor incorporates an industrial look, with faux street lamps, gunmetal-gray accents, and mirrors that hang from repurposed chainlink fence. It's the perfect setting for the stylists to let their creativity flow. After close consultations, they can color, cut, and style new looks for men and women. Aestheticians, meanwhile, can wax away facial hair or trim nails during mani-pedis.
As the stylists at Royal Salon Organic Care whittle away at unruly coifs, they eschew common ammonia- and paraben-laden chemical products in favor of natural, vegan Organic Salon Systems products. Under the leadership of owner Indre Roy, the experts wield these products while adding depth with highlights, razoring layers, and twisting tresses into updos for weddings or neck model auditions. Sugaring is offered for clients wishing to get rid of body and facial hair.
Within a renovated church, owner Sarah Kendall styles hair with the skills that made her an educator for TIGI, Phyto, and Kydra. A plaster angel reminiscent of the Winged Victory of Samothrace hangs illumined on the salon's golden walls, hovering over spacious styling stations fully equipped with full-length mirrors and cabinets. Private treatment rooms welcome guests with spa treatments that include massages and facials. In the lobby, clients seeking to take home supplies to maintain their hair treatment or facial can browse a cabinet full of designer products by the light of glowing stained-glass windows.
Framed paintings of sun-soaked landscapes bedeck the walls at Studio 27, where qualified staff strives to keep patrons comfortable during med-spa services or pampering sessions for their hair or nails. Sessions begin with one-on-one consultations during which clients share their goals for the treatment and staff shares "Honk if you love beauty" bumper stickers. Owner and registered nurse Michael Renee Bradburry administers all medical treatments, which include injections of brow-smoothing Botox, Juvaderm, and Radiesse. Obagi?s medical line of skincare products augments microdermabrasions and chemical peels administered by aides, and staffers also beautify heads and hands with hair and nail services.
Eden Salon and Barbershop hosts more than 20 independent stylists as they pursue their passion of pushing fashion boundaries with forward-thinking coiffures. While stylists work at utilitarian stations amid red, tan, and exposed-brick walls, black shelves and cupboards with diamond-plate aluminum drawers house products by Paul Mitchell. To preempt outdated 'dos, the staff education director keeps tabs on current trends and burns rattails on sight. The salon also hosts Eden Eve-nings during the spring and summer months to help clients get dolled up for the weekend with cocktails, makeup, and styling.
Caposhi Salon & Spa's armada of experienced stylists boasts more than 100 years' combined experience in the industry. Following the namesake of the studio⎯a '70s slang term for cool and stylish⎯each mane tamer strives to infuse hairdos with salon style. The trendy salon greets each guest with olive walls and sleek wood floors before the visitor is shepherded to a padded chair. A savvy stylist then sinks their shears into tresses, removing dead ends, evening out layers, and shooing away hibernating squirrels to shape locks according to each client's desired style.
Patrons can also opt to splash their hair canvases with color by adding coloring service to their cuts. Single-process color paints tresses with all-over tints, and partial highlights streak strands with desired hues, giving monochromatic manes depth and texture and patrons street cred with zebras. On the way out, guests can maintain their salon looks by purchasing quality products from brands such as Redken, Moroccanoil, and Goldwell.
