For years, stylist Rachel Adams fielded requests for quick appointments by clients who had ?somewhere to be.? Dismayed by this in-and-out approach to pampering, she decided her own salon should be designed as a tranquil space that clients would think of as a destination rather than a stop along the way. Today, at Somewhere To Be Salon, Rachel and her staff help clients to soak up some much-needed ?me? time with mani-pedis, haircut and color services, and 30-minute facials performed under the light of a small crystal chandelier. And because staffers know how hard it can be to pencil in quality time with friends, they offer a special Girls Night Out package for ladies to catch up and make prank phone calls while enjoying makeup, nail, and hairstyling services.
Paju’da’s band of rock-star stylists, fronted by Cynthia Nava, transforms overgrown head hedges into well-manicured manes. Cynthia employs Goldwell and Moroccanoil products while working on manly locks ($20 value), women's 'dos ($37), and children's tresses ($15), with no additional fee for imaginary friends. All-over color treatments ($75) paint locks in high-definition hues, and partial ($77) or full ($97) highlights or lowlights may accent each strand's au natural luster then finish with a haircut. For finger-bound cuticles, a Shellac manicure layers newly trimmed and buffed nails with long-lasting Shellac polish, able to withstand even the most aggressive tickle fights.
From within CoCo & Company, stylist Jessica Torpey keeps busy sculpting the tresses of men, women, and children. Before each service, she holds a complimentary consultation to help her better understand each client?s beauty goals. Afterward, she gets to work lightening locks with an ombre technique, smoothing unruly frizz with a keratin relaxer, or creating elegant updos with curls. When she?s not focused on hair, Jessica spends her time spray-tanning her clients or sleeping on a big, heavy cushion called a ?mattress.?
Anetta Hoover transforms wild locks with stylish cuts and colors, as well as keratin express treatments, which eliminate 95% of frizz and leave manes glossy and straight for up to eight weeks. Within the boutique salon, Anetta will slather the advanced keratin-infused formula onto clients' strands, commanding it to penetrate deep into the cuticle with a bond that promotes healing and protects follicles from environmental toxins and environmentalist canvassers. Next, she will blow-dry hair and finish the 'do with a careful flat ironing to lock strands straight into place and complete the frizz-free look, leaving skull-capes shiny, smooth, and ready to battle humidity like an air conditioner brandishing a sword. Folks with already-straight hair can redeem this Groupon for a stylish haircut with a choice of all-over color or partial-foil highlights, also performed within the exposed brick walls and sunny yellow décor of the chic salon.
Experienced stylist Becki Bryce lavishes personal attention on coifs with the Chi Enviro American Smoothing Treatment, whose formaldehyde-free formula tames curly or unruly strands for up to four months. The system supplies hair with amino acids, proteins, and hypnotic whispers, adding shine and silkiness as it eliminates up to 95% of frizz. During the 90-minute appointment, Becki applies the smoothing treatment and locks in the formula's bonding power with a flat iron. Patrons leave the salon with a take-home kit that includes Chi shampoo, conditioner, and a silk serum to help to keep tresses as smooth as Tony Bennett on ice skates.
