At Salon 22, a great hairstyle is like a fine diamond: shiny, precisely cut, and multidimensional. Stylists summon these qualities in a sparkling space lined with earth-toned walls and decorative reeds. Armed with photos of their favorite looks, clients help design ’dos that amplify bright eyes, stunning cheekbones, or fashion-forward angel halos. In the process, stylists may sketch pictures of prospective coifs to gauge clients' reactions. They also teach clients how to hone their hair at home, using products by Aquage, Biomega, and Simply Smooth. Goldwell hues power color services, which range from eyebrow tinting to full-head foils. Texture services such as body waves and keratin treatments can make tresses pin straight or as rippling as an ocean watching a horror movie. In addition to prettifying locks, the styling team can pamper nails with cuticle softeners and glamorous polish.:m]]
The New You Hair Salon's staff strives to put clients at ease as soon as they enter the waiting area, which features black leather armchairs, potted plants and vases of flowers, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Before long, a staff member ushers customers back to one of the styling chairs that fill the red-and-tan-walled salon.
The staff consists of nail technicians and stylists who stay up-to-date with contemporary styling techniques by attending classes and competing in high-stakes trivia contests. They utilize these techniques along with professional haircare products by Schwarzkopf and Sebastian to reshape clients' locks into flattering looks that reflect their personal styles.
The staff at Artistic Images shares their hairstyling skills with their clients, but also with other stylists around New England as styling educators. That’s not to say that they don’t keep up with their own training; in fact, they keep abreast of hair’s latest trends in order to cut, color, permanently straighten, or otherwise re-texturize hair in the way their clients envision. Their knowledge as educators helps them make product suggestions so that clients can maintain salon looks at home.
Tesoura Salon’s cadre of experienced stylists whips unkempt tresses into sleek shape. Scissors piloted by artful hairscapers nibble strands into chic configurations, and a concluding styling service adds polish to newly hewn 'dos. Those opting for partial highlights dapple cranial plumage with flattering color kisses without the hassle of standing in the middle of a paintball duel. For already shapely strands suffering from frizz, the semipermanent Brazilian keratin treatment leaves locks linear and smooth in approximately 30 minutes. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, the treatment coats each shaft of hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating unwanted curl and smoothing cuticles. Patrons are sent home with an assortment of aftercare products for sustained silkiness upkeep, assisting hair in retaining its newfound unswerving character for up to six or seven weeks.
At Venora's Salon & Spa, the stylists and aestheticians strive to make all guests feel welcome—whether by giving free blow-drying lessons or offering complimentary lunch. (Lunch is available every Thursday and Friday; coffee and pastries, as well as wine and cheese, are available every day). Opt for a haircut and these skilled stylists will work with you to determine the best color and cut to suit your sense of style, personality, face shape, or favorite episode of MAS*H. Or, to freshen your frontispiece, go for the Diamond Tome microdermabrasion. This non-invasive treatment can minimize sun damage, age spots, scars, and frosting left over from childhood pie battles by gently exfoliating skin with a diamond-tipped wand rather than one tipped with abrasive chemicals or ground-up Matchbox cars. Venora's light concept gel nails are a safer, more durable alternative to acrylics because they are non-porous, protecting the natural nail without discoloring over time.
