Although they’re greeted by the sound of snipping scissors and the sight of a light-yellow room filled with black leather stylists’ chairs, guests of Natural Image Salon and Day Spa can get much more than just a haircut. In addition to stylists who specialize in creative hair color and keep abreast of the latest trends—such as the feather hair extensions that secret agents use to blend in while spying from trees—Natural Image staffs aestheticians who perform a full range of spa treatments.
These experts dab skin with products made with natural ingredients, relying on botanical plant peels and Swedish body wraps that blend herbs, minerals, and sea clay. As well as pampering skin with Aveda facials and sea-salt-glow exfoliations, the aestheticians render it hairless during waxing sessions. Nail technicians add the final touch to appearances with gel manicures or layers of OPI polish.
Aveda, Paul Mitchell, and Dermalogica bottles line the walls of Hair Central. They're pulled down by licensed barbers and cosmetologists who work with guests to create hairstyles that suit facial features. In addition to hair services, the staff also performs custom facials, as well as nail services with OPI polishes.
With 14 years of experience and a scholarly stint in Germany on her cosmetology resume, Leyla of Leyla’s Hair and Nails has the background required to both supervise staff members and participate in the beautification of languid locks. Strands relish a nourishing deep-conditioning treatment for one hour before precise shears prune dead ends. Pate landscapers then use dexterous hands to style and weed scalp-lawns. In two hours, full highlights add dimension and vibrancy to pelts, brightening them so that clients can find them at night.
The stylists at Hair Fiddlers demonstrate a passion for hair not only by listening to clients closely and trying to make them leave with smiles, but also by continuing education and attending hair shows and private classes. Though she?s been hard at work since 1993, one of the stylists, Sandy, continues to sharpen her skills, learning both new techniques and new trends. Inside the intimate boutique, the team applies their knowledge with Keratin Complex smoothing treatments, as well as formal services including wedding styling and coloring. They also perform glossing treatments that create bright shininess in case all your light bulbs burn out and you?d rather just wear a lampshade around the house.
With a slew of hair-centric services, Amie Sedlar of PureBeauty aims to gussy up guests, whether they need a quick trim or a hue overhaul. Following a friendly meet 'n' greet where Amie gets to know you and your style goals, she gets to work clipping dead ends, applying dimensional highlights, and styling hair into show-stopping 'dos. Additionally, light waxing services are available, such as brow shaping, and lip and chin waxing.
At MJ's & Company, seven beauty specialists serve up hair services and relaxing massages. Stylists and aestheticians dabbles in cuts and color as well as facials and waxing. Massage therapist Cherie, on the other hand, specializes in multiple massage modalities, including trigger point, Swedish, and deep tissue. Each specialist works independently, and clients can book their appointments online.
