Combining keen aesthetic intuition with professional-grade products and equipment, the stylists at Front Street Hair Studio use an arsenal of techniques to create changing, energetic new looks for their clients. They begin each appointment with a thorough consultation, determining how anything from a quick trim to a full head of highlights will accentuate a client's best features, even if their best features are solving integral and differential equations. From there, the stylists tend to tresses using Aquage shampoos and styling products?made using nutrient-rich blends of organic seaweeds and algae?as well as vibrant coloring formulas by Wella.
Mother-daughter owners Brenda Willoughby and Ashton Wiley specialize in making women and men feel well-groomed and confident with a carefully selected menu of skincare, nailcare, and bodycare services. A team of nail techs and estheticians stands by ready to pamper clients from head to toe, and a boutique stocked with feminine accessories completes clients’ new makeovers like the frosting on a carrot. Nail technicians exfoliate phalanges and slather them in essential oils before polishing nails with products by OPI, LaLicious, and CND Shellac. Estheticians rely exclusively on natural, preservative-free skincare products by Sanitas to hydrate and cleanse countenances, and waxing sessions wick away unwanted hair with hard or soft waxes from Cirepil. On their way out, patrons can peruse the boutique’s purses, jewelry, and cashmere social-security cards.
Cited by Vogue as the mastermind behind the now-iconic “beach hair” look, stylist Kevin Murphy travels the world crafting new hair designs. Despite this, his presence looms like a friendly but no-nonsense ghost at BeauImáge Salon. The salon’s six stylists use his eponymous line of hair products, as well as products from L’Oréal, to style creative cuts, elevate updos, and finish coloring sessions. Their services extend beyond hair, though. Two nail techs brighten digits with acrylic nails or Shellac polish, which refuses to chip even when hands are stuck in the mouth of a hungry pug.
Sunflower Spa’s fully licensed aestheticians and therapists couple their years of experience with an array of rejuvenating treatments to revitalize and beautify clients in a relaxing, inviting environment. The noninvasive hydradermabrasion treatment utilizes a process of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and antioxidant protection to clear congested pores, fix fine lines, and resurface the skin to slick primordial proportions. The laser-free treatment lasts 50 minutes and can leave skin feeling fresher and looking younger, restoring your natural glow to a high-pitched frequency only dogs can hear.
The first things that come to the average adult?s mind when thinking of fun children?s activities are most likely ball pits, bounce houses, video games, and singing animatronic animals. The staffers at Flutter: A Day Spa & Salon for Kids, however, conjure an entirely different list?they think of massages, facials, hair styling sessions, and makeovers. These trained spa professionals customize grown-up beauty services such as these to suit the needs of a younger generation, giving 12?15 year-old boys and girls a unique and fun way to enjoy an afternoon or birthday party.
Tucked inside Salon Republic, the team uses 100% organic ingredients to perform safe nail, skin, and body treatments. A dessert-inspired pedicure refreshes little toes with a fizz soak and foot mask, and a teen facial designed for 12-15 year-old clients aims to control acne with deep cleansings, extractions, and stern threats of detention. The staff can also adorn youngsters with mineral makeup, temporary tattoos, and a range of hairstyles that includes everything from up-dos to mohawks.
Indulgence is the status quo at Polish’d Nails, where staffers offer spa treatments that are as relaxing as they are physically rewarding. They offer pedicures with hot stones, cooling masks, antioxidant-rich green-tea soaks, and circulation-stimulating peppermint moisturizing masks, often accompanied by soothing massages. The staffers' manicures aid clients in unwinding with the addition of walnut-and-raspberry scrubs and hot-towel wraps.
