Rose Fick's 15 years of salon experience serve as the foundation for StoneHouse Hair & Nails?but it?s the seven talented stylists that are the pillars that keep clients coming through the doors and leaving looking well-coiffed and reinvented. These stylists facilitate physical transformation via haircuts, coloring, and occasion styling. An in-house nail technician keeps digits groomed and vibrant with manicures and pedicures, and a massage therapist loosens muscles and raises spirits with full-body massages and body wraps. Additional spa treatments, like brown-sugar foot scrubs and hot-towel and cold-stone facial massages, can turn a salon visit into an escape from the traffic jams and pop quizes of the outside world.
The stylists at Violet’s Salon use Redken hair products to sculpt manes and layer or color locks. Staff members also supplement natural tresses with perms, straightening, or updos for weddings or sittings for a commemorative plate portrait. Clients can also enjoy spa services such glycolic-acid peels, Shellac manicures, and waxing.
The much-lauded Studio One Salon offers a plethora of salon and spa services dedicated to de-stressing patrons as well as bettering appearances. Place a face in the care of Studio One Salon for a one-hour basic spa facial that begins with a thorough skin analysis, allowing the aesthetician in charge to tailor a specific treatment for each epidermis. Using Dermalogica products, each visage is cleansed, exfoliated, extracted, masked, hydrated, and, finally, fortified against the everyday onslaught of solar rays and glove-slapping duel challenges. An eyebrow arch eliminates overgrown or out-of-place bristles, tidying up forehead mustaches into two separate, symmetrical features while increasing one’s ability to communicate emotions such as surprise, anger, or “I’ve just been pied by a clown!”
From the wrap-around porch to the mahogany crown molding inside the Victorian building, Aura Salon has a homey feeling. Especially for owner Chris Nadjarian, who actually grew up in the very home that now houses his salon, according to a Patch.com article. These days, he shepherds a staff armed with gleaming scissors and hair dye as they mold manes into trendy styles.
There's more than one way to color hair. The stylists at Tralise have a number of methods up their sleeves, transforming locks with all-over color, highlights, glazes, and more. They carefully fold select sections of hair into foils, creating full, partial, or flash highlights that add dimension to manes. After bleaching hair, they deftly apply a color glaze, resulting in shimmering golden locks. They even tint eyebrows, helping to make a new hair color look natural or to enhance one's Groucho Marx impression.
Outside the realm of color, the team performs salon services they've perfected over their 10+ years in business. Cuts for men, women, and kids flatter faces and encourage ears to come out of hiding, allowing the salon's ear-piercing services to add sparkle to lobes. Texturizing and conditioning treatments work to create soft, smooth waterfalls of hair, while perms and spiral treatments fashion springy curls.
Under the sage direction of Dr. Brian Young, the staff at Beauty Island Spa cultivates healthy complexions, eases aches, and whittles silhouettes with spa services for men and women. The spa’s island theme is reflected in its relaxation-inducing treatments and tropical atmosphere fostered by décor including peach-hued walls, plush white leather chairs, and palm trees inhabited by shipwrecked families. Aestheticians put their beautifying know-how to use as they administer innovative treatments such as LED therapy to help diminish the symptoms of rosacea, acne, or aging.
