Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
Even if we do not mention it in the consultation, we are always looking at facial shapes and how best to tie in the hairstyle. Usually it is a little tweak here and there to make a hairstyle work, and we will have a two way conversation on how we are going to proceed for best results.
Part of being a good stylist is mastering the art of conversation. What are some pro tips for talking to strangers?
Sometimes it is [better] to listen than talk; however most hairstylist are people persons and like to talk a lot. We want to make sure we talk about your hair or lashes and make sure we are letting you know how to style it at home.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We have a unique 16-chair salon on the second floor of our building that we treat as a loft space. We also have local artists display their work which changes periodically. We keep our prices at a comfortable mid-price point and high-quality, well-trained stylists. We have a 50-50 ratio of men and women clients.
At Bare Skin Spa, the staff’s chief philosophy likens your face to your physique; if you want it to appear firm and fit you'd better have a regular fitness routine—just as if you want your face to appear more youthful and healthy you’d better have a regular skincare regimen. Much like personal trainers, the staffers customize their services to suit various goals and body types. They draw from a lineup of products, including Éminence Organics, Dermalogica, and glo therapeutics, to combat skin ailments from acne to fine lines and incorporate natural ingredients, such as paprika, blueberries, and pumpkin, into their peels. Further beautifying their clients, they conduct waxing treatments and microcurrent facelifts, which strive to smooth away wrinkles without surgery or the hassles of ironing your face every morning.
With the spa's membership program, they take the gym analogy even further, rewarding participants with discounts and a monthly facial, peel, or microdermabrasion appointment.
Melanie Foster focuses her talents on clients? peepers. The certified Lavish Lashes technician applies up to 100 individual lashes per eye, bulking up fringe and adding enough length to properly flutter and braid. She uses a medical grade adhesive to apply the synthetic lashes, and her work lasts between two to four weeks before a tocuchup is needed.
At UR FabuLash, licensed lash tech Dina uses Lavish Lashes to give eyes more oomph, enhancing length and thickness to lashes and eliminating the need for mascara. To achieve that fuller look, Dina applies lashes one-by-one to the upper eyelid, and—for an even more voluminous appearance—she can add extensions to the lower lashes, as well.
One look around Seidou Salon Spa tells clients what level of luxury they can expect to find there. From the mounted flat-screen TV that hangs in front of the black leather styling chairs to the porcelain footbaths that squat at the foot of two padded pedicure thrones, the setting suggests a dedication to pampering rarely seen outside of an Olympic cooing match. The private treatment rooms where massages take place even feature a corner tub, in which clients can indulge in hydrotherapy treatments that either relieve soreness with camphor or soften skin with mango, lime, and aloe.
The center's treatments range in nature from clinical to holistic, sometimes incorporating solutions of lactic or salicylic acid?chemical peels?and sometimes favoring Eastern healing methods?acupuncture and chakra-balancing massages. As an Aveda salon, Seidou Salon Spa has access to popular hair-color and conditioning products, and it upholds this standard by also carrying nail polish from OPI, skin creams from PCA Skin, and appointment books made of recycled newspaper clippings of the first moon landing.
