Kenneth's Hair Salons and Day Spas transform lackluster locks into magnificent manes with flattering, fashion-forward cuts and expert styling. During a cut and style, a master designer will reawaken hair's inner beauty with a consultation, considering each client's desires, hair texture, face shape, and engine displacement before suggesting a blueprint for a sexy new style. As the haircare treatment progresses, customers can enjoy soaking up as much of the modern, welcoming atmosphere as possible while the stylist reveals trade tips and tricks, and recommends products to attain a fresh-from-the-salon look at home. Each master designer stylist comes to Kenneth's with extensive experience in taming human insubordinate frizz, and continues studying emerging cut and styling techniques to make sure each new 'do swings and swishes in harmony with the latest advances in shearing science.
Inside of Dublin's Cut & Shave, a team of licensed barber stylists tends to gentlemen with clean haircuts, relaxing shaves, and massages. Armed with a leather strap, straight razor, and laser scope for accuracy, the cadre of andro-aestheticians call on their centuries-old trade and extensive cosmetology training to dole out hyper-smooth shaves tailored to each client's skin. They also soothe necks weary from day jobs tutoring bobble-head dolls with scalp, neck, and shoulder massages, lending to a general atmosphere of relaxation.
Jay Ward, a master stylist with more than nine years of experience, cuts, colors, and perms hair inside her space at Salon Lofts. She handles hairstyles of all lengths, sculpting strands with Kenra Platinum haircare products and lending extra oomph with all-over colors and highlights from the Wella Salon Door color line. She also waxes eyebrows to ensure that they complement her clients' new hairdos and old letterman jackets.
In a private studio tucked away at Style Suites, Angel Peterson wields her shears with style, performing haircuts, color, and restorative treatments. Surrounded by shining hardwood floors and granite counters, clients can take a seat in Angel's chair for all-over color, quick shampoos and blowouts, or up to 20 inches of hair extensions.
For more than 28 years, stylist Luann Albert has helped clients—including three former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterbacks—get ready for getting seen. Her crack-team of 12 stylists and cosmetologists operate out of a homey studio, full of throw rugs, curio cabinets, and hardwood floors with absolutely no telltale hearts beneath them. Luann cuts and styles hair, but also levels up manes with keratin smoothing sessions and permanent-wave treatments.
Within private and semiprivate rooms, staffers rejuvenate the non-scalp parts of clients with four facials that use Bioelements products, five nail services, and a range of massages, such as the deep-tissue, hot-stone, or less-practiced heavy-boulder massage developed at the Wile E. Coyote School of Beauty.:m]]
Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, gents there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Patrons sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, complete with a cleansing and towels warmed by hugs from bald eagles. The stylists and barbers only enlist professional products from brands such as American Crew and Woody's, which are tailored to male hair and emanate fragrances like a bouquet from a Camaro.
