At Salon DG, stylists understand the widespread impact hair can have. Rather than scrapping trimmed ends, they package them up for the Matter of Trust organization. Matter of Trust transforms the hair bits into absorbent mats, which protect coastal wildlife from hazards by sopping up oil spills and protect bald eagles from ridicule by outfitting them with tiny wigs. They also ship discarded tufts that measure 10 or more inches to Locks of Love.
Along with their philanthropic cuts, the beautifiers augment salon services from coloring to styling with their distinct artistic flair. Their signature treatment, the Pravana Perfection smoothing blowout, foregoes the harsh chemicals of similar processes for a gentle complex that fights frizz without flattening curls. The salon's nail technician welcomes clients into her separate spa pedicure room, complete with a plush pedicure chair, which, like a vampire on prom night, blends into the surrounding pops of black and scarlet. Patrons who opt to book appointments online earn $1 toward future services or products.
Ornate doors and a bubbling tabletop fountain lend a warm, Tuscan feel to Estancia?s 3,200-square-foot space. The tranquility is furthered by the spa?s host of relaxing treatments, from soothing hot stone massages to hydrating facials that target rosacea-like redness. On the salon end, stylists bring about fashionable hairstyles with cuts, color, and extensions.
Devon Tucker specializes in coloring and freehand haircuts, both of which she doles out at Salon Lucente. She can turn any chaotic clump of hair into a fashionable hairdo by crafting a face-framing cut, adding dashes of color, or sculpting it into a fashionable coif. Devon also offers men’s haircuts and styles hair for weddings, proms, and other special events.
