Germantown Salon's stylists, Lisa and Sue, have been adding color, shine, and shape to manes for more than three decades. Armed with products from GKhair, Schwarzkopf, and Wella, they trim and transform coiffures with skills earned from their years of salon experience and practice on nearby topiaries. The salon also gives back by hosting events such as a cut-a-thon to benefit breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
When Sam Gould opened his beauty salon in 1932, offering "distinctive coiffures," he never could have guessed that his progeny would continue and expand his business into a chain of full-service salons and spas. Touting good old-fashioned haircuts and manicures along with medical cosmetic treatments that would amaze and confound a patron from the ’30s, the team at Gould's Academy pampers and rejuvenates clients from head to toe. Continual study keeps technicians abreast of the latest styles and techniques, which they transfer to clients in the form of everything from coconut-scented body wraps and keratin straightening treatments to cybernetic ponytail implants.

Most salons don’t have a kitchen table in the middle of the room. Then again, most salons don’t serve caviar. This luxurious appetizer is the namesake of Caviar Hair Studio & Spa and is available with several of the treatment packages, accompanied by sparkling glasses of champagne. Amidst the polished chrome and sleek leather of the salon’s treatment chairs, a team of six stylists, all Paul Mitchell-trained, beautify and soothe clients with an assortment of services. Locks bask in highlights, scalp treatments, and updos, and a fleet of massage modalities—such as deep tissue, hot stone, and Swedish—assist shoulders and backs in releasing tension more effectively than shouting obscenities out of their deltoid muscles.
