Studio 106 Hair Design's experienced stylists beautify manes with a spectrum of artful techniques and luxurious services. Deft fingers treat scalps and strands to invigorating, sudsy shampoos with professional products, removing lingering pomades, oils, and stowaway scrunchies. As clients recline in black swivel chairs, Studio 106 Hair Design's staffers snip dashing new ’dos, blow-drying and styling for maximum impact. Monochromatic strands can enjoy vibrant shine and added dimension with a set of full foil highlights (a $60+ value).
Since 1997, Salon East has been servicing clients with Aveda-approved looks and other beautifying services. The full-service salon specializes in haircuts for men, women, and children, along with coloring and nail services. An impressive team of aesthetic professionals bring their notable backgrounds to the floor, where they channel their talents to enhance their clients' nature beauty. Together, they render a full slate of hair services, from styles and color treatments to botanical therapy—and not the kind that involves a plant growing on a psychologist’s couch.
Long before modern medical conveniences?such as computers and robot doctors?the primary form of therapy was massage. And it's still going strong. Working out of Shade Tree Massage, licensed massage therapist Kristin Schlosser can sideline ailments ranging from achy muscles to sports injuries with a diverse array of healing techniques. Guests may request flowing Swedish strokes to ease tension or focus on lower-layer aches with Kristin's signature deep-tissue massage.
Nail technicians give digits some va-va-voom using OPI and Creative Nail Design polishes in a kaleidoscope of hues. They also cover nails in long-lasting Shellac polish designed to withstand everyday wear and tear such as washing dishes or thumb wars with your pet rock. Mani-pedis include nail shaping, cuticle curtailment, and help with hangnails.
Z'Brows Waxing and Skincare Studio grants guests a break from the everyday grind and the effects of aging. The studio's licensed aesthetician Kelly Gish slathers faces with botanical extracts and gently shapes brows using client-preferred methods. Gish also applies her artistic eye as she smoothes skin with facials, exfoliating chemical peels, and full-body waxing services powered by hand-selected spa products blended from botanicals, herbal extracts, and aromatherapy essential oils. To further encourage relaxation, Z'Brows’ chic day spa is dimly lit by strings of soft, glowing lights. And for additional charm, the space is embellished with eclectic accents including a colorful mosaic bartop and zebra-print chairs that humbly accept their inability to change stripes.
From within The Red House's elegant, relaxing atmosphere, Creative Cut Hair Salon has been beautifying nails for 35 years. A mani-pedi emboldens phalanges by first trimming and filing the nails, then cutting cuticles into dazzling uniformity. Before finishing everything off with an expertly applied layer of nail polish, the talented staff dole out a light hand and foot massage, making the whole experience a great gift for Mother's Day or a gratifying lunch-break activity with dad during Bring Your Daughter to Work Day. Like 30 back-to-back rides through the Tunnel of Love, the whole service should last around 90 minutes.
