While what's considered beautiful can sometimes seem monolithic?a one-color, one-style type of beauty?the stylists at DeLou Couture Beauty Services recognize that beauty comes in all hair shades (even those usually found only in crayon boxes) and textures. They want their clients to feel good about themselves and to treat their tresses right, so they work with customers from all ethnic backgrounds to choose the haircut and haircare techniques that are right for them.
In addition to cuts, color, and services such as natural blowouts or relaxers, DeLou Couture's stylists also primp nails, wax unruly brows, and apply makeup so clients' lipstick can match?or artfully clash?with their new highlights. Most of these services can also be taken on the road, for at-home prettifying sessions and special occasions such as weddings and away soccer games.
Although the stylists at Headlines Hair Salon are whiz kids when it comes to traditional salon services and product lines by Goldwell, Wella, and Schwarzkopf, they do more than just manipulate existing hairdos?they also help clients regrow thinning strands with their signature laser hair-therapy sessions. The sessions use low-level-laser energy to noninvasively energize strands, which causes them to sprout like sunflowers in a tanning bed full of Miracle-Gro. After 6?12 months of weekly treatments, men and women can sport a fuller-looking head of hair.
An extension to Adesso Moda Salon, Pura Spa & Boutique rounds out its sister salon's beautification processes by supplying clients with spa services and stylish accessories. Aestheticians perform facials and hair removal to lay a pristine canvas for makeup application and spray tans. For fingers and toes, lavender and lemon manicures pair with peppermint pedicures to leave limbs supple and fragrant, like a pair of suede gloves lost in a rose bush.
Behind the red-brick walls of an historic train depot, Hair by Toni’s stylists mold manes as jazz and blues notes dance across the 700-square-foot space. While guests sip on freshly brewed cappuccinos and lattes, they can take in the elegant simplicity created by the vintage-inspired furniture and cowhide carpet that sprawls across the floor. The salon’s walls display an ever-changing collection of artwork, which can include paintings, photographs, and drawings of invisible chameleons.
Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
The team at Sonia Day Spa renders their many decadent anti-aging facials using oft-lauded Elemis products, a luxury British import incorporating high-quality natural active ingredients. Licensed therapists and certified aestheticians share a single driving purpose at the spa: help their clients achieve a relaxing nirvana where they feel beautiful both inside and out. To that end, they perform 10 different types of massage, each of which can be super-boosted with healing aromatherapy or by letting The Hulk do some of the kneading. For those in the grip of Hulk-sized amounts of stress, a longer stay at the spa may be in order. For that, the staff presents various half-day and full-day packages that combine skin-specific facials, mani-pedis, body scrubs, and massages.
