"We're not interested in running an assembly line. Every customer is given all the time needed to achieve their desired result," explains TaNesha, owner of Solace Hair and Esthetics Studio. But customers aren't just given time; they're pampered from the moment they enter the studio, when they're handed a glass of lemon-infused spring water. Beyond its homey doors, Solace offers makeup services, facials, and waxing, and each service is lavished on guests in an attentive and individualized style. TaNesha is also the woman behind the T. Barnes Beauty Group, a collective of aestheticians, massage therapists, nail technicians, and makeup artists who provide mobile beauty services wherever they're needed.
A seat in one of the black leather chairs at Accent? Salon is a ticket to a new look. From a fresh haircut to a smoothing keratin treatment, the salon's expert stylists have the skills to make envisioned looks a reality. They also have high quality Redken Chromatics Ammonia & Odor Free Color and full line of Scruples color and retail products to help them do the job, whether that's painting on sun-kissed highlights or arranging a fanciful updo. In 2013, the salon got a makeover of its own, with new renovations upping both the chicness and comfort.
A men's haircut can take on many forms––a fade, flattop, military cut, mohawk, or buzz to name a few. The stylists at Gayle's Family Hair studio are experts in them all, and that's just one hair in their ample styling coif. Women can seek a coloring session for bold highlights, or add volume with flattering layers. The salon also proudly features Fairy Tales Hair Care products, which use aloe, rose hips, and citrus extract to strengthen hair.
Pastel-blue walls, plush black leather chairs, and potted plants set a calm and relaxing scene at Styles by Monica, where the trained staff revamps its clients’ looks with chic cuts and color treatments. With high-end products in their arsenal, the stylists also apply makeup and create updos for big events and tend to hands and feet with nail treatments.
Inside the quaint and welcoming storefront, the stylists of Salon Kamala fill the 1,000-square-foot space with the whirring of blow dryers and the crinkling of color-coated foils. Using L’Oréal deep-conditioning treatments, stylists restore moisture to manes and shine to mink iPhone cases, or they revamp looks with classic and modern cuts.
Natural and organic products are used exclusively at this salon, where stylists nourish and protect strands amid haircuts, highlights, and smoothing treatments. A separate room caters to younger folk, who hop into a fire engine or pink Cadillac while enjoying their favorite cartoon or PlayStation 2 game. After their haircut, kids receive a lollipop and balloon as a reward for their good behavior or correct guesses of how many hairs are on their heads.
