Although Amaré Hair Salon’s cubby-style shelves brim with products from upscale brands such as Redken and Pureology, the salon still caters to diverse budgets with a level system that correlates aestheticians’ prices with their levels of expertise. Stylists at all levels consult with clients before each haircut, and can further spruce up locks with texturizing and coloring treatments. Amaré’s aestheticians wax away unwanted fuzz or gussy up dull fingers and toes with a touch of regular or Shellac polish. Special wedding services prep brides for camera-ready ambles down the aisle, and staffers add a masculine twist to hair, nail, and spa sessions for male clients without gunning monster trucks over their nails to buff them.
Salon Bronze bestows customers with a sun-kissed glow in light-letting tanning beds and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. The salon?s staff meticulously cleans and inspects their traditional and standup UV tanning booths' lights, changing bulbs regularly to ensure that each tan achieves the rich, bronze hue of a deep-fried Golden Gate Bridge. The standup VersaSpa spray-tanning booth imbues skin with a coppery glow in minutes. After selecting up to three solutions?a pretan pH balancer, a customized bronzer, and a postsun hydrator?clients step into the booth and succumb to a soothing mist spritzed directly onto the skin.
From the moment guests step into Beauty Innovations Ltd., the warmth of bubblegum-pink walls erases any lingering stress. Relaxation comes in many forms, including mani-pedis with OPI polish or long-lasting CND Shellac, coloring with Goldwell hair products, and smoothing keratin hair treatments. No matter the agenda, the salon's services reveal beauty that was there all along, much like the plot of Tootsie.
Walking past hairWerks' brick façade, guests encounter a spacious interior enlivened by bright white furnishings, glossy hardwood floors, and a bubbly team of salon professionals leveraging L’Anza haircare products. The beautifying haven tends to clients from fingertips to tresses, accenting traditional treatments with spa services such as facials, massages, and spray tanning sessions that eliminate the need to change the sun's bulb every two years. Despite the salon's black-and-white decor, it manages to catch the eye with pink and purple zebra-print chairs and a rainbow's worth of professional OPI polishes.
Vintage House of Hair’s stylists have both a sense of humor and a sense of hospitality. So while they style their clients’ hair, they serve complimentary cocktails and encourage the kind of laughter normally reserved for the times when one sitcom character points out another sitcom character’s failure to be a perfect human. Encased in a deep mocha frame, the full-length mirrors that lean against cream- or dark orange-hued walls catch all the mirthful action. They also reflect stylists rendering trendy updos and perms or removing unwanted hair with facial waxing services.
With just two chairs in the cutting room and two basins in the color and wash room, the stylists at Towheads Hair Studio ensure the place is never too crowded. This allows them ample room to maneuver their elbows when sculpting chic new looks or slathering heads with professional Redken products. But the studio’s polished hardwood floor reflects more than just hair flying from heads—precision waxing services sharpen eyebrows and clear upper lips of unwanted fuzz.
