Serving Dearborn Heights for 30 years, Bruno Salon bolsters beauty by tending to hair, skin, nails, and makeup needs. Inside the recently remodeled salon, beauty professionals remove split ends, add vibrant color, and infuse hair with moisture. In spacious private treatment rooms, they also groom nails and remove unwanted hair from the face, underarms, and near the nether regions.
In the 1980s, Preston Jackson Sr. and his wife Anna had a vision to equip women from all walks of life with the tools and skills necessary for a career in cosmetology, manicuring, and aesthetics. In the spirit of that inclusive philosophy, Preston and Anna didn't just open a beauty school here in the United States—they also opened the first ever beauty school in the West African nation of Togo. Two decades after that illustrious beginning, the institution known today as P&A Scholars is not just a certified beauty school, it's also a place where clients can get professional-level hair, nail, or skin treatments from supervised senior students before they graduate to work their magic in high-end salons or the wig rooms of the rich and famous.

On Point Hair Designs is a professional salon with a classic beauty-shop feel. At this popular spot, clients walk across the black-and-white checkered floor before settling into one of the cushy hair station chairs, where a licensed stylist gives strands a stylish new look. Services include extensions, press and curls, and fanciful updos for special occasions. This laid-back salon also hosts handbag and accessory parties.
For more than 20 years, the stylists at Lamiria's Salon have been beautifying and styling the hair of women in Metro Detroit. Owner Lamiria Huddleston has served as a mentor and trainer for burgeoning stylists, ensuring that every woman who takes a seat in a styling chair at her salon will get top-notch haircare. From cuts, colors, and blowouts, to virgin relaxers and conditioning treatments, the stylists handle a variety of hair needs, and send clients home with the tools and knowledge to re-create salon-made looks on their own. They emphasize treatments that don't damage hair or cause frizziness, unlike Medusa's stylist. And beyond haircare, the staff also provides waxing and makeup services.
Under hanging plants and track lighting, stylists snip, braid, and color hair while aestheticians cater to complexions. Products by Nexus, Matrix, and Mizani help hairdressers smooth and style and skincare recipients, meanwhile, receive spa-level extras with their services. For example, right after twisting Egypt–sourced cotton thread to remove errant brow hairs, aestheticians administer a sigh-inducing hand massage and remove any stubborn finger puppets. Skilled as they are, staff members don't hoard their beauty secrets. Courses in brow threading, for instance, provide clients with skills, a take-home kit, and a certificate.
