Master cosmetologist and salon owner Manisha Mehta takes pride in delivering a sweeping range of beauty and grooming services infused with luxurious touches. Full-length facials incorporate rich ingredients such as 24-karat gold or chocolate, and facial peels immerse visages in fruit and vegetable medleys without the need for surreptitious head dunks into a punch bowl. Issuing from Mehta's fervent interest in the healing and restorative powers of herbs, most full facials are accompanied by a custom aromatherapy blend. Alongside eyelash extensions and waxing are ancient Eastern grooming services, such as eyebrow threading, ear candling, mummification, and henna designs for hands and feet. Dark wood and leather furnishings, deep-maroon walls, and gilt-framed mirrors and paintings lend the space a feeling of an urban retreat.
Helmed by an associate educator for Paul Mitchell, the Paul Mitchell-trained stylists at Mopp Hair Day Spa blend their keen eye for style with Paul Mitchell products to beautify clients. Before trimming hair, shampoo consultants lead clients to the spa’s lather lounge, where they soothe scalps with massages and revitalize hair with shampoos formulated for each client’s specific hair type. Before the final whisper of the blow dryer reveals their polished new ‘do, clients can keep their excitement in check by admiring the salon’s modern decor, which includes a waiting room filled with tufted leather benches, as well as chairs that were born as brunettes but now bear trendy zebra-stripes instead.
After falling hairstyle over heels for the beauty industry more than 10 years ago, C Shore Hair Shop's owner jumped right into the business by obtaining her stylist credentials as well as managing two salons in the Fayetteville area. Her passion led her to open C Shore Hair Shop, a tranquil hair haven where she transforms ’dos with GKhair smoothing treatments, razor haircutting techniques, and advanced coloring services. To further beautification, she can also refresh visages with waxing services or doll them up with a tailored makeup application.
The stylists at Shearnanigans Salon have extensive training, but they prefer to let it show subtly by giving each client an easy-to-manage hairstyle. They strategically cut and style locks, and an on-staff color specialist can add pops of accentuating color or change hues completely, which is also the extent to which coloring a lion?s mane pink changes how intimidating it is. The team?s extensive list of services also includes texturizing, braids, dreadlocks, extensions, and weaves.
Natural hair finds its perfect style at Lavish Hair Spa, which twists strands into zulu knots, coils, or straightens them with a ceramic fusion silk press. At this Paul Mitchell Signature Salon, stylists keep hair hydrated and healthy with newfound color and sheen with products from Paul Mitchell to Kera Care Naturals to Design Essentials Naturals and Jane Carter Solutions to Miss Jessie's. Stylists also use house-brand straightener Silk Out, which is composed of organic ingredients. At its Browz Waxing Bar station, the salon also removes unwanted hair from eyebrows, underarms, and legs.
Hair either makes a statement or it goes unnoticed—the stylists at Shenae Paris Salon use their skills to make sure the latter never happens. Led by master stylist and salon owner Natasha McCain, the staff specializes in more than just eye-catching cuts. They deep condition and relax strands, create intricate braids, lengthen locks with extensions, and add body with roller sets.
