The students at Winonah School of Cosmetology hone their shampooing, coloring, and skincare talents during professional, hands-on training classes. They sharpen their scissor skills under the watchful supervision of licensed instructors, snipping away split ends and crafting flattering new ‘dos with confidence and precision. They also learn to navigate the chemical waters of perms and relaxers, in addition to extension installation and updos.
Like its name suggests, True Colors Salon helps clients express themselves through vibrant hair color. Stylist Grace Smolin is particularly adamant about finding the perfect color for a client's skin tone and eye shade because she always wants hair to look as natural as possible. This might mean blending chocolate highlights—never platinum—into brunette hair to add dimension and even leaving a blond's roots a little darker to make it look like she was born with that color. Grace also creates modern cuts and straightens hair with keratin treatments, which can keep hair frizz-free for up to five months.
The Hair Dashery has dutifully kept all types of hair in line for more than 30 years with a deluxe menu of styling services. Its skilled stylists can craft voluminous layers, sew in weaves, or straighten strands with relaxers. The salon also provides services for those experiencing hair loss, using the American Cancer Society–certified hair-loss specialist it has on hand. Clients may also solicit an aesthetician for a makeup application, lash extensions, or a durable coat of Shellac nail polish.
A towering shelf of styling products waits inside Anointed Hands House of Beauty & Nails. With those items and a pair of scissors, one of the stylists can snip and design looks to suit each client's personality and lifestyle. Away from the salon chairs, aestheticians sculpt nails and coat them in polish. The business also celebrates different days of the week such as Friendly Fridays, which encourage friends to get shampoos side by side.
Paris Hair Salon's experienced technicians welcome customers for a slate of services that beautify and relax them from head to toe. They offer face-framing haircuts complete with multidimensional highlights or lowlights, as well as skin-soothing facials to combat dry or acne-prone skin. They also pamper and decorate digits with meticulously applied manicures and soothing aromatherapy pedicures.
True to its hybrid name, this spa/salon indulges both hair and skin with lavish treatments. When stylists turn their attention to heads, they can skillfully administer perms or affix weaves, but they prove equally adept at refreshing skin with facials and soothing achy muscles with massages. Additional spa treatments include body wraps and colon hydrotherapy treatments.
