Beams of sunlight pour through the windows of Newport Hair Design, bouncing off ornate mirrors, peering through tall plants, and gliding across sleek, cherry-wood cabinets. The salon?s talented stylists mimic the modern aesthetic of their ornate styling stations as they shear inches from locks, light up hairstyles with gleaming colors, and level out frizzy locks with japanese-straightening and keratin treatments. After outmoded hairdos have been updated, manicurists take the beauty-boosting baton and run with it, trimming, filing and reshaping the nails on fingers and toes. Waxing technicians complete top-to-bottom makeovers by removing hair from the face, limbs, and Brazilian regions, leaving the body as smooth as a figure-skating saxophonist.
Owner and founder Jackie Dark, a longtime eyelash-extension customer, wanted to introduce others to the beauty service that shortened her daily routine. She and her team of certified aestheticians and cosmetologists at Lovely Lash Salon & Cosmetic Center dedicate the practice solely to instant beauty fixes. Some of the services they offer include eyelash extensions?with synthetic or mink lashes in varying sizes, lengths, and styles, they add volume to guests' eyes, making them look alert and fresh during all hours without using mascara. They also perm and tint lashes, as well as spray tanning, teeth whitening, and help improve figures with VelaShape body shaping.
At Zen Bodywork, holistic health practitioner Jerri Le kneads muscles and recalibrates energy levels. Her favorite modality for easing stress and improving flexibility is Thai massage, which incorporates a beneficial medley of pressure, stretching, and fish sauce. Classic Swedish massage employs gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction, while hot stone massage makes use of warm rocks and aromatic essential oils. Specialized neuromuscular therapy unites the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, helping to eradicate pain and restore structural integrity.
A team of experienced stylists resides in this sleek, stylish salon, refashioning weary follicles so that they do justice to each client's countenance and personal flair. For an exotic, avian air, fashionistas can get three sets of feather extensions expertly inserted into their strands, offering peeps of pattern while reminding dusting tools that they have competition. The feathers come in an array of colors, widths, and textures, and are attached to a small bead that's clamped shut at the scalp. Generally 6-13 inches long, the extensions can be worn, washed, styled, and cut for up to three months, just enough time to thoroughly confuse neighborhood cats.
At Splitends, men and women are encouraged to experiment with their look, which may result in strangers' inaudible mouth gapes and excessive staring. Confidently pass off the reigns of your flashy hair-drawn chariot to one of the many aesthetically adventurous stylists. Call on owner and resident rock sculptor Christopher Hall, whose razor-sharp electro-clash cuts will have Grandma pulling her hair out and then selling her hair on the Internet to pay for an electro-clash cut. Or Gina, whose knowledge of high-end products will leave you with locks more flowing than a soccer star’s, more volume pumped than a soccer crowd, and more sparkling than a freshly washed minivan belonging to one well-kempt soccer parent.
