Inside Sanctuary, certified cut-and-color specialists highlight a menu of services that deals exclusively in hair solutions, keeping up appearances with designer clips and snips, keratin treatments, damaged-hair repair, and color correction. Submit your locks to be shaped and handled by a stylist ($30–$70), or achieve an extra-straight style with a blow dry ($25–$40). A shine treatment helps heads of hair reignite their burnt-out halos ($30), and a single-process color amps up blandly burnished strands ($50+). Customers can also opt to use today's Groupon to buy a bigger treat for follicles, such as full-foil highlights ($100–$165) or a hat made of maple syrup.
Elements Hair Salon's licensed stylists precisely measure and cut strands of hair and breathe new life into manes with a conditioning treatment. In 45–60 minutes, a veteran tress specialist analyzes facial features before carving a dazzling new headpiece out of the block of undifferentiated hair perched atop clients' craniums. A blowout then gives strands a silky finish that looks and feels as smooth as a bowler hat filled with marbles. Clients can add a healthy sheen to dry or listless hair for four to six weeks with a high-gloss conditioning treatment that can be added on to a cut or enjoyed for its own, vitamin-rich sake.
Employing more than 35 years of experience and knowledge of current trends, Fran S. Pala transforms outdated coiffures into trendsetting styles with an array of services. Patrons can keep doppelgängers on their toes with a new cut and style ($35+), or challenge Mother Nature with a full color overhaul ($60+). A men’s cut ($19+) saves hours of photoshopping work on family pictures, while a special-occasion style ($45+) preps clients for last-minute elopements. Pala, who regularly attends inspiration-catalyzing continuing-education classes, books appointments Tuesday–Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
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.
At Hair 280 Salon, Laurie Stewart transforms drab locks into healthy, vibrant dos for men, women, and children.

In addition to cuts and color, Laurie offers a number of texturizing services, including straighteners, perms, and Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatments.
