Salon Lux's owner is Cindy Wilson, a nail technician and reflexologist for more than three decades, who combined her dual passions into a single business where beauty and well-being blend seamlessly. This fusion produced a menu of services where trends such as feather extensions and smooth, speedy blowouts meet relaxing and rejuvenating facials that couple with aromatherapy scrubs and European or lymphatic massage. Stylists?including a graduate of Toni & Guy?also manage manes with color services, cuts, and smoothing keratin treatments, while bodies find their perfect bronze with hand-applied California spray tans that keep them safe from UV rays and winged sharks.
When not in the salon, Cindy can be found teaching classes in reflexology at the Learning Connection or volunteering at the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, where she offers reflexology for those fighting cancer.
From the outside it looks like a single-family home, complete with a brick chimney jutting from the roof and a garage in back. But since 1979, the only occupants of the house have been the barbers, stylists, and aestheticians of Shear Dimensions. The staff is populated by such veterans as Pat Petronio, a barber who's been cutting hair for more than 40 years. Elsewhere on staff you'll find licensed massage therapist Donna Celona, who is well-versed not only in massage techniques, but in linguistics as well; the Brazilian native speaks five languages fluently, and can perform four distinct types of massages.
Cosi Bella Salon & Spa's stylists, aestheticians, and nail technicians team up to beautify clients with a menu of renewing treatments for the body and scalp. Aveda facials employ that renowned brand’s plant-derived formulas to cleanse pores and nurture beard gardens, and advanced keratin smoothing treatments smooth out curls and eliminate frizz. Other haircare services include flattering cuts and 81 colors of SO.CAP hair extensions made from 100% human hair.
Peer into the window of Thomas Michaels Salon, and you might see Erika, an experienced stylist who can transform dull, shapeless locks into chic and modern styles. Armed with a battery of TiGi, Paul Mitchell, and Redken products, the skilled artist moves around a black styling chair, lopping off split ends, reinventing color, and even smoothing curls with the Keratin Complex smoothing therapy and a bullwhip. Across from her station, Erika’s colleagues lead beauty initiatives of their own, providing OPI mani-pedis and facial and waxing treatments for both men and women.
