A rustic wood-paneled ceiling, taupe walls, and exposed brick swaddle The Shear Shop in an earthy ambiance. Inside, stylists happily rework manes with scissors, hair dye, and extensions long enough to braid and belt around your waist. Facial experts and nail technicians continue with the pampering, and bowls of warm wax top off visages during brow waxes.
Face-saving aestheticians warmly welcome visages with a skin assessment inside Roni's Hair Forum's classically inspired interior, rife with scalloped columns and elegant vases. They can then customize each facial by epidermal type and age. But skincare is just one hair in the salon's ample coif. Skilled stylists can deploy an army of microscopic architects to shape and color hair to individual demands. LED teeth-whitening services restore teeth to their once radiant brightness. Guests can also seek a mani-pedi, completing their pampering from head to toe.
The Fast Lane Bar, Bowling and Party Center fosters wholesome family fun by hosting scores of activities beyond bowling. Its popular bar art parties invite guests to paint their own masterpieces on a 16"x20" canvas while enjoying food and drink specials during classes. Those looking to test their caper-solving skills can enlist in the plot-twisting action of Fast Lane Mysteries and discover whodunit on the glossy lanes.
Those same glossy lanes offer plenty of traditional bowling fun as well. Thunderous claps from strikes and subsequent high-fives reverberate through the facility five days a week during the summer, including until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, which outfit the facility with cosmic bouts. Boasting a lineup of happy hour specials, the newly renovated Garage Bar volunteers to whet whistles and topple appetites, and league and party options enable larger groups to plunder pins collectively or team up to take down rebellious bumpers in games of Red Rover.
Bred as half salon, half spa, Scott Talbot Salonspa overhauls men's and women's stale looks with a menu of hair, nail, and skin treatments. Armed with products by Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil, stylists enhance hair color with highlights and gray blending or break into a cutting frenzy by snipping off split ends or transforming floor-length hair into chic bobs to ward off overly aggressive princes. Cushy pedicure chairs line the nail area, where technicians push back encroaching cuticles and embellish fingers and toes with polish and acrylic fills. Aestheticians and massage therapists guide guests into a quiet spa room for one of five specialty facials or a Swedish massage.
At The Beauty Lounge, owner Erin Blackston promotes an atmosphere of clean, angular cuts and time-honored sophistication. The former platform artist for Rusk International leads a staff that includes a former color educator for Framesi and a Redken educational artist, alongside other specialists who excel in everything from fusion hair extensions to straightening treatments by Pravana and Coppola. Aside from cuts, up-styles, and blowouts, the crew excels at gray coverage and far-out color combinations, making the salon a popular choice among Akron's boldest heads and aging clown population.
Sara Fraraccio Hair and Beauty Boutique's styling team has trained at salons across the country. This experience serves them well as they snip and color chic new hairstyles amid their salon's trendy decor, which includes a foyer with twinkling chandeliers. During their various services, the stylists employ carefully selected products from brands such as Redken, K?rastase, and Pureology. They can also dole out haircare tips or recommend a beauty school for pony tails.
