Though it?s been open for only a few years, Cristina's Hair Salon amasses more than three decades of experience inside its welcoming confines, thanks to its veteran stylists. Once they?re in styling chairs, clients offer up their strands to the team?s expert straightening treatments, highlights, all-over color, and updos, and they emerge with magazine-worthy looks without actually taping pictures of hair models to their heads. The stylists also specialize in artistically placing small bursts of color in hair, as well as cutting children?s hair.
Redken-certified colorist and salon owner Dawn Palmieri leads the way at Blonde D?s Hair Shop. She and her fellow stylists create their clients? dream looks with the help of products from Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil. Along with haircare services, they?ll prep ladies for a fun night out or an exceptionally pretty night on the couch with blowouts, makeup applications, and eyelash extensions.
Sunlight floods through the large windows at the front of Kathleen's Hair Boutique, illuminating stylists cutting hair into flattering shapes and makeup artists sweeping Bare Escentuals mineral makeup onto faces. The beauty experts also create permanent waves, add sleek extensions, and wax off unwanted facial hair. They keep up with such industry techniques by regularly attending classes and hair shows.
Like the offspring of a flamingo and a zebra, Glitz & Glamor is black, white, and pink all over. Its vibrant shades surround tweens during two-hour parties. At the behest of tiara-crowned birthday girls, five guests gather inside a VIP party suite. They don pink bathrobes before noshing on pizza and singing karaoke alongside a big-screen TV. When stylists aren't hosting celebrations, they operate the establishment as a traditional salon and spa. During spa mani-pedis and chocolate deluxe facials, they also give mothers and daughters a chance to bond as well as two people hugging in a pool of super glue.
After 15 years, Unique Salon & Spa's dedicated staffers carry on with a large slate of services under their new collective moniker. A thorough spa menu is divided among categories of "beauty," "body," "soul." The "beauty" menu offers haircuts, color services, and makeup applications, prepping faces and hair for swanky appearances. "Body" services tend to fingers and toes, painting delicate colors over newly buffed nails or removing unwanted body hair with waxes. Meanwhile, "soul" offers up therapeutic massages and facials, refreshing and rejuvenating muscles and skin.
