At Salon Amore, stylists complement transformative hair, nail, and body treatments with personal attention and modern sensibilities. Products such as Kenra and Pureology cameo in stylistic overhauls as hairdressers trim and shape strands into glamorous hairdos and highlight strands like a college student reading Cliff's Notes. More extensive treatments, such as keratin smoothing care and hair extensions, round out the salon menu, and spa services such as facials, nailcare, and massages invite age-defying specialists to drop their magic below the forehead and give the entire body a stunning glow. The salon also hosts an in-shop boutique with an eclectic assortment of jewelry, lotions, gifts, and decor items.
The beauty team at Villager Salon and Spa pampers and primps clients in a combined spa and salon setting. On the salon side of the facility, a small band of experienced hair stylists with years of experience bestows hair sculptures with a parade of high-end hair and beauty products by Paul Mitchell, Coppola, and Kenra. Villager's equally tight-knit spa technicians carry out their own collection of services, each with a diverse skill set that encompasses trigger-point massage techniques, waxing, and the use of hot stones for massages and extreme juggling.
Hair Trinity Salon's staff describes its workplace as a "family-friendly salon," where it invites clients of all ages to commission styles. The diversity of these potential looks is evident in the studio's portfolio, whose offerings range from cobalt-blue stripes on a white pixie cut to intricately woven updos. Once they have chosen a look, clients sit in black-leather salon chairs beneath studio lighting, while a stylist cossets their hair with products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Eufora.
The seven cosmetologists at JB Cavour Salon Spa wield more than a century's combined experience in the beauty business, as well as an arsenal of botanical Aveda products. Now in its second generation of family ownership, the recently renovated sanctuary keeps a healthy stream of ?ahhs? flowing out the big bay window with luxurious massage, skincare, and hair services.
In David Raccuglia's "Modern Man Portrait Series," impeccably dressed models of masculinity such as Jack Nicholson, Gary Oldman, and Iggy Pop pose in stark black-and-white photographs. The series hangs on the wall of the MensDept. as a reminder of the significant difference proper grooming can make to a man's appearance. It's a difference founder Kurt Kueffner spent 15 years showcasing for salon owners as he toured the country demonstrating men's haircutting techniques to fellow stylists.
When he decided it was time to put that teaching into practice, he opened MensDept., an upscale salon staffed only by stylists who have received at least 60 hours of hands-on, one-on-one training from Kurt himself. They base each cut on the client's hair type and head shape, rather than on meeting the daily mohawk quota mandated by local law. Beyond blending grays naturally into darker strands, the team can rejuvenate hair with customized color or conduct cuts at the client's office on weekdays until 3 p.m.
Once guests step under the red-and-white striped awning that marks the entrance to Salon Rouge, they're transported to France. The salon's ruby-red entryway leads to a chic space where the glows of chandeliers bounce off marble floors and papered walls. Antique armoire mirrors capture reflections of a mix of Parisian flea-market finds and upscale, modern touches, such as European shampoo bowls.
Veteran salon owner and stylist Richard Staab owned an art deco–styled salon before selling it and moving to the salon’s current location, formerly a century-old condo basement.
Amid this festive backdrop, Staab's team of expert stylists tends to tresses with top-quality products from Oribe, Kevin Murphy, and Savon de Marseille. Additional beauty products line the shelves, such as perfumes from Comme des Garçons, allowing guests to look and smell more authentically French than a Croissan'Wich.
