The stylists at Salon Phal have a way with flatirons. One of many beauty services offered, the staff performs standalone flatiron treatments, lending a sleek, well-coiffed look to manes without requiring a session with the shears. Hairstylists shape, color, and retexturize, and waxing specialists evict unwanted hair from the body during waxing sessions.
The weave and color experts at Kariah Salon manufacture majestic manes while striving to keep locks healthy. Weave services, using 100% human hair, start at a discounted price of $100 (or $70 for a quick weave) and may be sewn into all of your natural hair or, like a helmet made from a halved Wiffle ball, leave some of your hair out. A net sew-in ($150) supplies solutions to those with thinning hair, allowing them to dazzle friends, coworkers, and traffic cops. The relaxer retouch treatment is designed to straighten head-fur that's spawned since a previous relaxer treatment, imbuing a sense of unity and follicular nationalism to once-warring noggin turf.
Affordable haircare—stat! Unlike a costly trip to the real emergency room, a visit to Hair ER finds stylists who aim to keep style budget-friendly by adhering to a simple mantra: "You don't have to go broke to be beautiful." Armed with more than 20 years of experience, they perform advanced beauty treatments such as weaves, hydration treatments, silk presses, color, and precision cuts. Chemical peels and makeup applications keep the face looking healthy and bright, whereas manicures and pedicures make nails shiny and colorful, as nature intended.
Unlike some salon owners, Spencer Malay isn't content to just sit back and watch as his stylists have all the fun. The 15-year hairstyling veteran, beauty consultant, and makeup artist grabs the scissors and works alongside them, doling out the salon's signature razor cuts and conditioning therapies and offering hairstyling advice dubbed "perfect" by a reviewer for the July 2011 issue of Allure magazine. On the spa side of the studio, massages and facials provide a welcome dose of relaxation for busy clientele, and med-spa treatments erase years from the face and body with dermal fillers and spider-vein treatments performed under the supervision of a doctor, nurse, and the occasional haunted painting.
Patrons looking to bring a touch of the salon's glamour home with them can peruse a collection of Spencer Malay jewelry or add a pop of color to everyday makeup routines courtesy of Spencer's own line of mineral-based cosmetics. The salon also specializes in providing and fitting wigs for patients with medical hair loss and curates a large and stylish collection, with options recommended by medical and beauty professionals as well as past clients.
From their space inside Perimeter Place, the team at Salon 11 Studios strives to create an environment that could rival any chic New York salon. The modern decor certainly sets the tone?think dark hardwood floors and minimalist white seating?and the stylists do their part by performing custom treatments with products from Manhattan-based brand Bumble and bumble. In addition to cuts, they perform highly-nuanced color services, reaching for ammonia-free formulas, semi-permanent pastels, or products formulated especially for blonds. Styling services are just as fun, and can encompass anything from pin up styles to messy, beachy waves.
In addition to the salon, the business hosts an onsite spa where practitioners perform waxing, facials, and airbrush tanning. After their appointments, clients can also visit the boutique to pick up Bumble and bumble products or peruse a selection of apparel and handbags, which they can use to carry their old out-dated hairstyles home with them.
