After a thorough consultation with each client, they go to work crafting new ’dos, freshening up current looks, or modeling manes after the customer’s favorite city skyline. Services range from basic cuts to the salon’s specialty color treatments, which are administered by Schwarzkopf-trained colorists.
The space at Studio Salon & Spa goes on forever??or so it would seem. Dozens of elegant mirrors span the avocado-hued walls, adding dimension to the cozy central room. There under miniature spotlights, stylists specialize in highlights and lowlights, adeptly transforming locks with advanced techniques such as ombre and baillage.
Kiera McBride at Bella Beauty Salon presents a full slate of hair services. The stylist can cut and style hair and add relaxation to the experience with a head massage. She also adds splashes of color with full treatments or highlights and can do perms.
For the past 25 years, licensed cosmetologist Julia has helped thousands of her clients look their best. Inside Studio 233 Salon & Spa, she snips away split ends and crafts chic haircuts to prep customers for special occasions such as prom or the annual trip to the laundromat.

Kimberly Ferebee, Hairspray Salon & Spa's resident nail technician, works alongside her aesthetician sister and a crew of stylists to beautify every client who walks through her door. While others work in mirrored stations and leather chairs, Kimberly's domain consists of the couches reserved for pedicures. There, she buffs, polishes, and paints her customers' nails as they lean back, enveloped in plush cushions. She enhances every service?even acrylic fill-ins?with a complimentary massage, leaving guests as relaxed as sleepy puppy who just can't keep his eyes open after a long day of work.
The list of things to do while waiting for your color to set is short: read, stare at the wall, add your shoes' soles to the salon's walk of fame. Cut Loose Salons, however, offers a much better option. Clients may use any of the salon's electronic tablets, each of which is outfitted with Netflix streaming. But that's just the cherry on top at this Paul Mitchell Signature salon. Using Paul Mitchell products, as well as products by Redken, TIGI's Bed Head, and Johnny B., skilled stylists create sleek scissor cuts, brighten strands with full or partial highlights, and craft elegant updos for special occasions. In addition, the salon's technicians remove unwanted facial fuzz.
