Amavi Salon opened in 1992. Since then, it has cultivated an inventive approach to haircare the staff calls "fortetherapy." While their menu of services looks deceptively similar to what one would expect at most salons, their guiding philosophy is different. Fortetherapy refers to the staff's efforts to put the health and integrity of clients' hair at the forefront of every treatment, even if it means flying in the face of industry trends. Their entire selection of products is plant- and botanical-based, lacking aniline dye, ammonia, and all the other things Dr. Doom drizzles on his salads. Amavi Salon's color products, specifically, squeeze a salutary dose of ceramide silk proteins, aloe vera, avocado oil, and anti-oxidants into each application.
Whatever your personal style, you'll find somebody at Hairmaster's Unisex Salon who speaks your language. That goes for women and men alike, and it doesn't just apply to hair. Haircuts and highlights are just a small portion of the service menu here; the salon's beauty professionals cover nails with OPI and CND polish during mani-pedis.
With more than 30,000 products that range from blow-dryers to bronzing creams, Image Cosmetics Inc's inventory is like the beauty closet most women wish they had. Beyond representing top brands such as Dermalogica, Rusk, and Elizabeth Arden, each product is purchased wholesale (directly from the manufacturer or an authorized dealer) and priced up to 70% off retail. Those who find themselves frequent shoppers of Image's vast inventory can opt to enroll in a rewards program, which gifts them a point for every dollar they spend.
A combination of technical prowess and creativity steady the shears and blow through the hairdryers at Bernard's Salon and Spa, a beauty center that aims to have its clients feeling like they just stepped off the cover of Vogue. Not all the staffs' attention is focused on the scalp, however—aestheticians deftly apply cosmetics before nights-on-the-town, perform rejuvenating facials, remove unwanted fuzz with wax, and shape cuticles during mani-pedis. Massage therapists, meanwhile, use swedish and deep tissue techniques to ease tension from the body, making clients appear more relaxed, approachable, and less likely to pop a neck vein.
Located in Blackwood, Hair Shop is a full-service salon that prettifies clients head to toe. Offering on-trend haircuts, color, waxing, and natural nail services, this intimate family-friendly salon prides itself on the personal attention each client receives from its licensed stylists and aestheticians.
The stylists at Michael Anthony Studios approach each haircut with a fresh perspective, snipping strands and coiffing curls to give clients their own standout style. They help guests achieve their signature look with services including keratin treatments, which help smooth unruly strands, and all-over highlights, which add dimension and vibrance to locks.
But the staff tackles more than just hair. They pamper ladies' paws with french manicures and paraffin hand dips, and take care of gents with hand treatments that include an exfoliation and massage. Their waxing services help oust unwanted hair on the face, legs, or bikini region. Also offering professional makeup applications, the staff revamps looks in preparation for events such as weddings or LARP coronations.
