Under the glimmer of brass chandeliers, seven stylists at Bladez and Bangz craft hairstyles for straight hair and perform dry cuts for curly hair. The sensitivity to different hair types comes from owner Matt Mahoney, whose childhood was steeped in styling techniques. "I (went) from a baby bottle to a bleach bottle," Matt jokes. "I grew up in this business." As a kid, Matt tagged along with his grandmother to her beauty school and salon, picking up styling tips and helping technicians battle armies of sentient brooms. Now, he presides over his own team of stylists that uses Deva Concepts products for curls and Paul Mitchell keratin products to smoothen already-straight locks.
After establishing their careers on opposite ends of the globe, sisters Dawn and Kathy came together to pour 35 years of combined experience into Beauty on Broadway Salon. Working side by side, the sisters give regular folks the red-carpet treatment by doling out specialty services including mani-pedis and permanent makeup. A resident hairstylist transforms tresses by performing everything from simple bang trims to Brazilian keratin-smoothing treatments. To reface faces, the salon also hosts an aesthetician with more than 20 years' experience, who administers ultra-hydrating and anti-aging facials that help fight free radicals and reverse damage from pie fights.
I have been doing hair for more than 17 years. I constantly take classes and stay up-to-date with fashion and trends. I can enhance your current look or create a new one! My goal is to listen and give you exactly what your paying for. You satisfaction and looking amazing is the most important thing to me.
Main Street Hair Salon is located at the corner of Main Street and the Pinellas Trail in beautiful downtown Dunedin, Florida.
Main Street Hair is dedicated to providing our clients with fresh, exciting and creative new ways of expressing their personal lifestyle and reflecting the true beauty within.
Before the start of each client’s service, Gina Vincelli brings them cups of organic tea as they sit on plush, vintage chairs in a private lounge, the walls of which are washed in light blues and chocolate browns. After years of working in an impersonal med-spa environment where doctors performed injections and lifts without getting to know their patients, she decided to shift her focus toward one-on-one treatment in holistic health care. Gina has channeled this passion for mind-and-body wellness into Awaken Organic Skincare & Boutique, distancing herself from a traditional clinical approach with organic formula-based facials, body treatments, waxing, and salon services. To relax clients, she fills the spa with aromatherapy scents such as lavender, eucalyptus, orange, and bergamot, varying the scents based on the season. She also fills the lobby with music and varies the tunes—from nature-inspired spa music to coffeehouse jazz—based on her current clientele.
Gina's staff of therapists executes noninvasive treatments, such as Beautiful Image facial and body sculpting, during which a small electric current runs through skin in need of toning. Shirodhara sessions drip a stream of warm sesame oil onto the patient’s forehead for a relaxing effect. Staff members also administer organic facials with Hylunia skincare formulas, which are free of parabens, perfumes, dyes, and preservatives to keep skin cleaner than Elmo's criminal record. To promote continuing skincare, the in-spa boutique's dark wooden cabinets are filled with homemade soaps, essential oils, and Jane Iredale mineral makeup, which aestheticians can match to clients' skin tone during free applications. Following a recent expansion, the spa now contains private showers for washing up after facials as well as an infrared sauna for covertly thawing pints of ice cream.
The staff at A Perfect Pair Salon & Spa has a knack for making things gorgeous. They adorn their luxurious studio with fine artwork, vibrant flowers, and ornamental upholstery, complemented by rustic rocking chairs on their attractive front porch. Amid soft, tulle curtains and warm lighting, the staff extends their aesthetic prowess to beautifying their clients with a variety of services, from haircuts to replenishing facials to decorative shellac manicures. A massage therapist soothes sore muscles as clients recline on plush, cushy beds. They also give their clients the power to prettify themselves, as they stock their shop with a variety of beauty products, including fine jewelry, smoothing skincare products, and shampoo that makes heads sprout lush daffodils.
