For over 60 years, The Mane Attraction has helped to beautify the locks of Lansdowne residents. Since 1949, four sets of owners have welcomed guests, with the current owners and their team stylists taking up residence in 2001. Just as the style of coiffures has evolved over the years, so too has the salon’s list of services–the roster now includes Keratin treatments.
Deva Hair Studio is chock-full of talented stylists and designer haircare products—but that’s not all. In addition to custom cuts and Redken color treatments, the studio facilitates true head-to-toe makeovers thanks to the gowns and tops available in its formalwear boutique. There, visitors can find a sparkling special-occasion dress to match the glimmer of their new face-flattering highlights; or they can peruse walls decorated with work by local artists to find a piece that will perfectly fit over the toaster-size hole in their living-room wall.
HairTini owner Danielle Ward personally snips each strand that enters her salon. Employing Redken products, the beauty duo perform signature services such as the HairTini conditioning treatment, which imbues parched locks with moisture. They also tend to the rest of the body, painting pallid skin with airbrush tans and waxing away unwanted fuzz. Dramatic black-and-white wallpaper, accented with paintings of shoes and stray mustache hairs, surrounds the two as they work.
Harmony Hair Studio & Spa and Mother Earth are so tight they have a secret handshake. Using only all-natural and cruelty-free products, the stylists perform expert scissor-work to yield voluminous layers or apply brand new color to impress friends, family, or a former sylist who isn't over you. Also, should the opportunity arise, peak into the salon's break room, which bares an intricately stenciled full-wall art piece of eco-friendly superheroes who put Captain Planet to shame in the hairstyling department.
