The crew of stylists at The Hair Lounge harbor a variety of interests—some spend their excess creative energy hovering over the stove while others nod knowingly while reading Dumas texts. These outside hobbies augment their primary passion—cutting hair—which they do with great care after evaluating each client’s face shape and personality. Inside the salon’s brick walls, clients relax in charcoal chairs as their hair undergoes cuts, styles, and color services, all of which are amped up by professional salon products from Redken and Unite Eurotherapy.
Natural techniques and products are the only things on the menu at Artisan Healing. Led by a talented and passionate team of massage therapists, Artisan Healing focuses its energies on healing through holistic massage, reiki, and skincare. The custom oils, lotions, and scrubs that the Artisan Healing team blends together contain only natural ingredients, such as shea butter, jojoba and essential oils. Mother Nature also provides the decor—earth tones shade two massage rooms, one with a shower, and natural sunlight illuminates the studio.
SkinWorks SkinCare helps clients mend image woes with the help of botanical-rich Dermalogica products and treatments. Patrons can snag serums for home use or kick back to let an aesthetician purify their pores, wax away unwanted hair, or read picture books out loud until wrinkles revert back into adorable childhood dimples.
Under the guidance of owner Andee Ballard, the team of 10 stylists at Envy Salon beautifies tresses with services ranging from artful snips to deep conditioning. High-end products from beauty houses including L’Oréal, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology lend their spritzes, gels, and mousses to each of the salon’s treatments. The salon is also a certified Brazilian Blowout salon, allowing stylists to leave straightened strands as strong and soft as a pro wrestler whose mother still reads him bedtime stories.
Women, men, children, no matter: the staff at Ed Beauty Salon works with anyone and everyone. Founded more than 25 years ago, this pillar of the beauty world provides all manner of hair, nail, and makeup services. On the spa side of the business, certified specialists help skin glow with facials or shoo away stress with lomi-lomi massages. During their visits, clients can deepen their levels of relaxation by sipping on complimentary cups of gourmet tea or by asking the stylist to shave peace signs into their hair.
Video-game consoles and televisions tuned to the clients choice of popular programs and games take a starring role at cutsngames, a salon and barbershop that lets the stylist focus on hair while the patron focuses on having a good time. As guests rack up points or score bonus points in games, the staff cuts, styles, and otherwise tends to hair while a fleet of TVs provides narrative entertainment.
