For more than two decades, the stylists and aestheticians at Our Gang Hair and Nail Salon have aimed their talents at fingers, toes, and manes, upgrading clients' beauty with professional products and services. Licensed stylists continually hone their scissoring techniques, attending ongoing training from industry leaders and competitive topiary sculptors. Products by brands such as Matrix, Wella, Redken, and Schwarzkopf assist hair specialists as they reinvent the color and style of each coif, and tools by OPI, Creative, and Zoya help nail techs shine and file nail beds into perfect hospital corners.
With a nod to the environment, the stylists at Creative Hair Design strive to pull from natural products when snipping or coloring tresses. Serums from Moroccanoil and L?Anza also provide structure as stylists assemble strands into elegant updos. In addition to hair, the techs dote on digits with bright coats of OPI polish.
To give their clients quality services fueled by continuing education programs and therapeutic products, the staff of this beauty salon partners with Aveda product lines made from naturally derived ingredients. Each staff member brandishes only Aveda products during facial treatments, nail sessions, hair appointments, and beard extensions. When snipping strands or soothing skin, they utilize techniques learned from personal experience and teaching programs led by Aveda staff members, known for their cosmetics knowledge and stylish PowerPoint lectures.
The barbers at Catanza's Barber Shop tame head tresses with cuts, colors, and shaves in an old-fashioned barbershop atmosphere; their follicular services and nostalgic décor won them 2nd place in the Best Barber category of Fox-8 Cleveland's Hot List in 2008. Undergo meticulous scissor snips for a dudely 'do (a $16 value), then evict unruly stubble with a refreshing shave (a $20 value). The shop's walls are adorned with pictures of famed Ohio athletes striking their best collector-card poses, and the shelves are lined with bobbleheads that are too risky to buzzcut. A waiting-area television provides customers with entertainment and style ideas from their favorite cartoons.
Being a top-200 salon is no small feat—those that make the cut are among the very best in their state and Dante Lucci Salon is just that. Their spot on Salon Today’s list of the top 200 salons is just one of its many accolades. The award attests to the success Dante Lucci Salon has had in rendering haircuts with razor- and clipper-cutting techniques. But it also underscores the salon staff’s commitment to continuing their education in order to stay abreast of new styling techniques and the ways in which nuclear physics can be applied to highlights (none so far). Beyond hair work, technicians perform nail services to pamper digits and makeup artists use the preservative-free Mineral Mine line to give clients a new look. In line with their excellent service, they use only the best products as well including those by Kevin Murphy, Oribe, and Living Proof.
