The stylists and aestheticians at Bella Bronze Hair Salon and Tanning Studios strive to create a friendly, upbeat environment for clients who drop in for transformative beauty jaunts. Hair gets a time-out as stylists deftly cut or color it, drawing on their continuing education in the latest techniques as they transform coiffures to clients’ specifications. A nail technician stains talons with salon-caliber acrylics or OPI gels and other services to keep hands looking their best. The salon’s facials and peels rejuvenate all types of skin, which can also darken to a sun-kissed bronze in onsite tanning beds from brands such as Ergoline and Wolff. The SolarForce booth lets guests stay upright while gilding, and VersaSpa spray tanning evades both UV rays and beaches’ suit-snatching tidal waves while turning limbs a glowing copper.
Within Sola Salon, Aesthetic Studio aesthetician Lea Smith delivers targeted facial treatments. They include services that aim to minimize signs of aging, cleanse deep within pores, or control breakouts. In addition to administering the six signature facials—which range from 30 to 90 minutes in length—Lea exiles fuzz with nearly 20 waxing options and tints brows and eyelashes for natural looks that shave time off morning makeup routines.
For more than 23 years, clients have flocked to Judy Foguth's hair salon to update their 'dos with the latest cut, color, and texturizing trends.

Proficient in updos, Judy’s team can also style clients preparing for proms, weddings, or other special days, and extend their expertise to fit and style wigs for adults or children suffering from cancer or medical hair loss.

Haircuts and coloring from pro- and master-level stylists testify to the success of their mission, with results both elegant and cutting edge. The staff also deliver elaborate nail services, such as hot-stone manicures and peppermint foot masks with warm towels and hand and foot massages.
For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup, and pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. Then once you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
