Master stylists Wendy and Sue combine more than four decades of experience and multiple certifications to beautify clients. And though they’ve studied extensively in the chemistry of hair—both have trained with Paul Mitchell and Joico—it’s the chemistry they share with their clients they care about most. They aim to transcend the “assembly-line” feel of chain salons, instead focusing on intimate, one-on-one service. Before any cut, color, or texturizing treatment, they make thorough consultations with the client. The stylists use professional products by Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Joico, which are known for nutrient-rich ingredients and lack of Silly Putty.
The 13 stylists at Eccoli Hair Salon never stop learning. From obtaining hands-on experience in workshops to attending the latest industry shows, the stylists make a point to stay on top of trends. Of their many services, the team members can relax strands, craft curly manes, or restore worn locks with Moroccanoil restorative treatments.
Winner of the 2011 Wicked Local Reader's Choice Award for Spa and Salon, Jathar Salon and Spa rejuvenates weary bodies with hair, skin, and nail treatments. Padded by cushy spa tables, patrons submit to the soothing influence of veteran massage therapists whose deft kneading leaves muscles as content as a puppy in a tennis-ball factory. In the spa's other private treatment rooms, aestheticians begin facials by conducting a custom skin analysis on guests draped over contoured beds. Vibrating massage chairs cradle visitors during pedicures, and manicurists meticulously craft nails and cuticles into pristine condition before gussying them up for big-league cat’s-cradle championships with vibrant coats of OPI or Essie polish. On the way in or out, a complimentary coffee and snack bar refreshes peckish bodies.

Deft fingers brush Mirabella cosmetics over eyelids and cheeks to enhance natural beauty and Balmain Hair extensions send locks cascading down backs.

Bella's beauty experts also wax away unwanted hair?from fuzzy upper lips to handlebar unibrows?and prepare clients for special occasions, such as weddings and proms.
