As a master colorist certified in Wella and ammonia-free Inoa products, Christy, the owner of Christy's Serenity Salon and Spa, has a keen eye for color and style. She works hard to keep up with the latest trends in hair and insists that her stylists do, too. In fact, the only way stylists can advance at the salon—from artistic to senior to guru, each with its own price point—is through taking continuing-education classes or by whispering “guru” three times into a mirror. Each service at Christy’s Serenity Salon and Spa begins with a thorough consultation and ends with product and care recommendations to help clients style hair at home.

Under the dual direction of style veterans Michelle LeHeureux and Kim Southerland-Keene, Old Towne Hair Design & Colour Studio beautifies and styles coifs with artistic techniques and gentle products. During the 90-minute Brazilian blowout, strands soak in Brazilian Blowout Zero products that mollify frizz and straighten locks without the use of harmful formaldehyde. The serum seals essential amino acids into the cuticle of each strand using a proprietary plant-derived bonding system, leaving even thin coifs with more root volume, much like fertilizing a flower patch with Wheaties. After the treatment, curls and kinks unwind into gentle waves, and head gardens remain guarded against humidity for up to 12 weeks.

Meshell LeHeureux (pronounced La-Rue) has been a professional hairstylist and colorist for more than 20 years, and she's seen her share of hair mistakes––especially with home dyeing. “There is no way box color can look real or natural, since no one’s hair is a solid color," explains Mechell. "Box color can’t take into account the texture of one’s hair, whether its straight, coarse, or fine...or how the texture can change from the roots to the ends of the hair.” That's why Shelly offers pre-treatment consultations, which ensure her Kadus coloring treatments are tailored to the individual.

Though Shelly is highly certified in Kadus and other specialty product lines, she still considers herself a student in cutting and coloring. Each year, she takes roughly eight workshops across the country, all to make her skill set in-line with the latest trends. These classes also offer her expert insight into modern techniques, such as ombre tapering and the service most requested by electric outlet enthusiasts: frizz reduction.

Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, men there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Clients sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, road to recovery facials, complete with a cleansing and hot towels.

Recessed lights cast a honey glow on the salon’s polished hardwood floors and modern black-and-white wall prints. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists snip flattering layers and highlight hair with Redken and Paul Mitchell products. Guests may also dip into the salon’s many beautifying treatments, which range from waxing and mani-pedis to deep-cleansing facials.

With a wealth of experience and a full cache of beauty certifications under her stylish belt, it's clear that owner Mindy Lien is passionate about her field. She's also intent on sharing her wisdom and ability to fluently converse with combs with new stylists. Therefore, she decided to open a warmly lit studio where talented artists perform hair and waxing services. Each member of the seven-person team brings a unique specialty to their post. For example, Johnny alchemizes custom color cocktails, Mai blends dimensional color with carefully crafted textures, and Vince draws on his formal design background to inspire his especially unique shapes and hues.
