With its starkly elegant black-and-white design scheme, On Stage Salon exudes a modern vibe that belies its 40 years in business. Ornate chandeliers illuminate the cushy, ebony salon chairs, from which stylists transform the manes of women, men, and children. A time-honed slate of services draw from cutting-edge products such as Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Wella color. The mirrors at each styling station—along with the delicately painted curlicues above them—reflect clients' newly minted perms, waves, and Slinky extensions.
Board certified in family medicine, Dr. Faiz Shareef believes good health requires a multidisciplinary approach that addresses physical and emotional needs. To create an environment that caters to all aspects of holistic well-being, he assembled staff members who specialize in everything from aesthetics and massage to fitness and weight loss. The technicians refine skin tone and texture with laser treatments, and the fitness instructors bolster confidence while leading core-toning and limb-lengthening yoga, Pilates, and Zumba classes. Bodywork services, such as therapeutic massage and acupuncture, target the chronic aches and pains caused by daily stress or nightly caber-toss competitions, and the center’s weight-loss plans motivate patients to live healthier lifestyles.
