As owner of Ruby Blu Salon, Michael Barone brings 13 years of experience to its styling operations, overseeing staff members who sculpt tresses amid exposed ceilings, track lighting, and portraits of models with stylish 'dos. The son of a professional hairstylist, Michael followed in his father's footsteps—a difficult task, as they were filled in with hair clippings. In addition to traditional haircut and color services, his team smooths frizzy tendrils with keratin smoothing treatments and nourishes coiffures with products by Moroccanoil and Kemon Nayo Organic Color.
With two locations and a slate of the latest hair, skin, and waxing treatments, Glory Salon is keeping things chic in both Farmington and Livonia. Stylists combine their skills with products from Purity Design and Aquage to create updos with staying power, correct botched at-home color jobs, and smooth frizz. When they're not styling or coloring hair, the staff is likely to be found removing it from the brows, bikini area, and anywhere in-between, or fawning over complexions with cleansing and rejuvenating facials. Options include everything from microdermabrasion and oxygen-rich treatments to basic European facials, which are just like American facials, but without the mask made from eagles' tears.
Embracing the tradition of a classic barber shop, Mike's Hair Studio is a place for guys to go for a great haircut, color, or even a hot shave. Guests can take a seat in one of the traditional barber's chairs after a thorough shampooing in preparation for shears, clippers, and the feeling of an exhilarating breeze kissing a shorn head. Barbers also offer classic hot shaves, reclining visitors in a chair before trimming beards or leaving faces cleanly shaven.
A lively energy fills The Stage Salon, where master stylists and barbers tend to all hair types but excel at working with African American tresses. Women can stop in for quick haircuts fortified by Redken and Clairol products, or unwind in the styling chair as stylist Ebony straightens curls with relaxers and Brazilian blowouts or creates length and volume with professional extensions. Gairyd and Silky Sam, the salon’s resident barbers, clip and trim men’s hair, topping them off with salon-quality gel or pomade. Beyond haircare, The Stage’s staff also outfits nails with eye-catching colors in OPI mani-pedis, waxes unwanted fuzz from entire bodies, and ornaments ears with piercings or gold staples.
Once you have your Groupon, you can call to schedule an appointment at Agosta, where a master hair shaman will snip, fade, and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and head-snakes. Your experienced stylist will sense your innermost hair-yearnings, then direct carefully wielded scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting creativity and practical solutions decorate your scalp for a haircut that revolutionizes the way you look in the mirror—inside and out. Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent cut busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of careless coiffeurs.
To Joe Grondin, a barbershop is more than a place to get a quality haircut—it’s a welcoming atmosphere where barbers and customers can share a few minutes of good conversation. In 1999, the master barber opened his first Roosters location with the goal of bringing back that classic ideal, pairing modern grooming techniques with an unhurried pace. The staffers at Roosters encourage their clients to see their grooming center as a place to relax, kicking back in the comfy barber chairs during seven-step hot shaves and trading golfing tips as stylists free shirt collars from overgrown ends.
