Cathy specializes in hair color and correction, but 30 years in the haircare industry has left her with a well-rounded skill set for cutting and styling as well. At Cut Loose with Cathy, the veteran stylist uses Schwarzkopf color and products as she deftly styles heads of hair. She can trim and shape ‘dos and bring each strand to optimal health with argan-oil based conditioners. She also resuscitates locks with color treatments that rekindle greys and add a refreshing glow to faded hairdos.
The expert stylists at Today’s Salon & Spa skillfully frame faces with haircuts and highlights. After consulting with clients, scissors-wielders snip and trim fringe to transform cranial gardens into chic coiffures before enlivening mop tops with partial highlights. Tress-tamers saturate manes with up to 10 foils, adding flair to the noggin and saving strands from impending gray or transparent hues. The Moroccan-oil treatment infuses locks with moisture, helping to restore a shiny sheen to dull or dry manescapes. The styling package culminates with a blow-dry and style, which releases newly refined ‘dos back into the wild with more style than an evening gown made of fashion magazines.
HalO Salon's master stylist and barber, Tiffany and Brian Kelly, rejuvenate frail follicles with a sweeping slate of hair services that use Paul Mitchell, Matrix, and Mizani products. A haircut converts hazardous hairdos into hair havens by snipping away excess inches ($10–$23), and a blow-dry styling fashions modern, stylish coifs—ridding hair of errant cassette tapes and passé TV antennas ($27). As dim lighting and soothing music calm tresses, guests can enliven their locks with full and partial highlights ($57–$79), or achieve a whole new hue with a hair coloring applied by an expert colorist ($60+). HalO Salon’s menu also includes curl-conjuring perms ($65) and specialty relaxers that defuse frizzy hairdos before they set off fire alarms ($65– $75).
Fusion Salon, an Aveda concept salon, offers a range of services to reenergize bodies and revamp locks. In a loft-like space with exposed brick, friendly scissor-handlers maintain manes with crisp cuts for women ($40), men ($30), and children ages 12 and younger ($25). A scalp, neck, and shoulder massage comes free of charge with all tress trimmings. Those looking for a new hue may apply this deal to a color job, such as a partial highlight/lowlight ($60). Overworked bodies can send themselves to a timeout in a massage room, where soft lighting, soothing music, and natural Aveda aromatherapy oils induce serenity comas. A 30-minute relaxation massage releases pressure as a licensed therapist gently glides capable clappers over the body canvas ($40). During a 30-minute deep-tissue massage, a tension thwarter kneads dermal dough until all kinks, knots, and hidden flourballs vanish ($45).
Providing a fun and festive environment that dazzles wide-eyed youngsters, Snip-its takes the stress out of maintaining the locks of jittery tykes. A kid-friendly staff maintains manes while ensuring safety, which is of paramount concern, by providing chairs especially designed for miniature adults. During the cut, melted crayons and various knickknacks are snipped away from tussled noodle nests, leaving locks as fresh as the day they were born. After the follicular wreckage is brushed off, children can play with a bounty of animated gadgets and games. With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.
