The staff members at Arpies Hair and Beauty Salon pamper their clients from head to toe with massages, facials, and detoxifying body wraps. In addition to haircut and colour services with products from Guinot Institut and Nioxin, the salon also offers nail services with long-lasting Shellac polish and softening paraffin dips.
Calling upon three decades of professional experience, First Choice Haircutters’ team of seasoned snippers reshapes locks using current and creative styling trends. Collaborative consultations help stylists share their personal tips, such as "cocktailing" two different styling products to enhance their benefits or wielding Designline moisturizing products to repair hair damaged by the frigid assault of winter. Stylists welcome drop-in visits, allowing customers to tame hair right before work or right after a lunch date in a wind tunnel.
Elite Hair and Skin Care owner Sue Shaker spends her days chasing a natural high. Fifteen years ago, she noticed that feeling confident about her looks positively affected her overall well-being, and so she has been trying to help clients develop confidence through hair ever since. Her journey began at California School of Beauty, where she gravitated toward hair colour because another student mixed the formulas together and created a black hole. Now she corrects unflattering dye jobs with aplomb, having honed her specialty in highlights and lowlights for nearly a decade. To keep the salon current, she attends regular colour classes and arms her fellow stylists with products from Aveda and Moroccanoil.
The resident aesthetician nourishes skin with Dermalogica's products and methods, building custom facials based on analysis of each zone of the client's face and spheres of influence on their friends' faces. Her nimble fingers also manipulate fine threads to shape eyebrows, and trap body hair with traditional resin wax and sugar paste that will not tug on tender skin.
Wielding professional products from Dermalogica, Zoya, and Qtica, aestheticians rejuvenate bodies with a suite of services tailored to each client?s needs. While custom facials clean the skin to remove blackheads and birthday candles buried deep in the follicles, nail services pamper hands and feet with hydrating masks and paraffin dips. Waxing, sugaring, electrolysis, and threading services can rid bodies of unwanted fuzz, and massages help banish tension from achy backs and shoulders.
Surrounded by the gleaming wood floors and cream-colored walls of Xpressions’ salon space, guests perch in padded chairs and watch their tresses transform through the efforts of a savvy stylist. At an aesthetician's station, a nail technician gussies up digits with manicures and pedicures, and an aesthetician performs waxing services that rid bodies of rogue hairs and super-glued fake moustaches. Guests can also add length and texture to drab manes with the salon's specialty: 100 per cent human hair or synthetic extensions, wigs, and braids.
Through the bay window set within a red brick wall, La Creme Hair Studio's stylists snip at men's and women's locks, sculpting them into new, contemporary hairdos. The staff lathers scalps with Moroccanoil shampoo and conditioner, which are infused with antioxidants and nutrients to promote lustrous hair and make it strong enough to hold onto a fedora during a hurricane. In addition to hair care, stylists beautify clients' every aspect with eyelash extensions, mani-pedis, and waxing.
