Friends and coworkers Chanin and Pam listen to their clients’ dream hairstyle ideas and bring them to fruition. At Chanin’s Hair Connection, the duo puts an emphasis on individual attention. Both Chanin and Pam personally schedule each client and take time before each haircut to discuss each client's lifestyle habits. The two stylists can create traditional or on-trend modern using their extensive backgrounds in hairstyling—Chanin alone has more than 20 years of experience—including all-over color, highlights, and lowlights, which add vibrancy and dimension to strands.
The Studio Chic’s velvety, burnt-sienna couch and table full of magazines keep patrons comfortably entertained before a fleet of services pampers them from head to 11th toe. Experienced stylists cut men’s, women’s, and children’s hair in front of colorfully framed mirrors, in addition to highlighting strands, waxing faces, and manicuring fingernails. The studio’s tress services helped it nab a nomination for Best Hair Salon on the Fox 8 Hot List. Deep-red-orange accent walls coddle clients in the sunlight pouring through the salon façade’s wall-to-wall window, which, like the windshield of a fully committed mason, is framed by classic red bricks on the outside.
Angles Hair Design styles headfibers into manageable, fashion-forward looks with a multitude of professional services. Under the application auspices of an Angles’ hair maintenance maven, a six-week, formaldehyde-free keratin smoothing treatment ($75) can result in a glistening month and a fortnight of strand-slickening splendor, and a five-month smoothing treatment ($250) can restructure and recondition hair for longer-lasting luminance. Patrons looking to lengthen their manes without soldering muskrats to their earlobes can employ the services of a helpful strand-by-strand hair extension ($350) for fashionable hair flips.
Open six days a week, Bessay outfits its north Akron customers with trendy hairstyles and treatments. Change the length of your locks with a stylish women's haircut ($36), or attempt to shampoo and blow-dry it into a cube shape ($23). Balayage hair color changes brunettes into redheads and greenheads into brunettes ($50 for quarter of a head), and a power-dose treatment acts like Botox for your hair ($20). Each treatment is administered by knowledgeable staff members who can provide advice on flattering styles and colors.
Studio Luxe doesn't believe hair should be cut; it should be sculpted. That's why its stylists employ the Sahag method of styling, also known as dry-cutting. The brainchild of prominent stylist John Sahag, dry-cutting allows for the client's hair to fall at its own discretion, without the manipulative tactics of water or aggressive switchblade combs. It also invites clients to candidly remark about the work in progress for the mutual benefit of both stylee and stylist. Studio Luxe Salon also specializes in Joico hair coloring, hair waxing, and nail renovation with long-lasting gel Shellac polish.
