Guests entering the Bernard Anthony Salon take in the elegance of vanilla walls offset by mocha-stained wood flooring and styling stations perched before full-length mirrors. After a complimentary consultation, beauty specialists cut and curl hair or reimagine it entirely with coloring treatments defined by Pureology hues. Frizzy locks fall into line during Keratin Complex therapies, and Moroccanoil conditions locks of any texture. To combat signs of aging and voter fraud committed by dead skin cells, aestheticians slather the skin with moisturizing facials and tend to the digits with manicure and pedicure treatments.
In place of barber chairs, Bananas Salon for Kids parks tricked-out sports cars or Barbie mobiles at each of its haircutting stations. In the driver's seat, each youngster barrels down an imaginary highway and lets imaginary winds race through his or her ever-shortening hair. Friendly, talented stylists play along and keep the mood fun as they impart Disney-star style onto domes with trendy cuts, intricate braids, or fancy updos. Spa treatments introduce the art of advanced hygiene with manicures and more. Parties literally celebrate in style with beauty packages, snacks, and goodie bags.
Wall sconces and elegant chandeliers cast golden glow on Hair Philosophy's caramel-hued walls and leather L-shaped sofas. Amid these modern accents, owners Anita and Taesha transform tresses with high-end products by Schwarzkopf L'Oreal, and Redken. Clients can also solicit the salon's waxing services to nix unwanted facial hair from clients and their teenage cabbage patch dolls.
Fantastic Sams is a full-service salon for the whole family that sculpts wilted hair into a look-twice hot commodity. All cuts start with a soothing shampoo using Fantastic Sams' signature line of products. With today's deal, tired tresses will also be treated to a moisture-melding deep-conditioning treatment to seal in shine and undo dryness and damage from sandbox headstands. After stray strands are snipped away, the lush remaining locks are blown dry as hair is sculpted into an irresistibly manicured mane. Each of Fantastic Sams’ confidence-renewal centers is staffed with follicle fanatics who will whisk worries away with precision and kindness.
