Hairport and a Touch of Class Tanning?has been in business for more than 25 years, though you wouldn't know it by the decidedly fresh look of its vibrant red- and lemon-colored walls and its unblemished dark-wood shelving. The same goes for the stylists, who remain linked, by way of continuing education, to the most current trends in beauty and fashion. And so experience and modern savvy combine in every haircut, coloring treatment, or perm conducted, resulting in a look that brings freshness and vitality to any head of hair or sentient spaghetti bowl. The salon also features standup and lay-down tanning booths, and mani-pedi stations helmed by nail artists whose spa manicures and sea-salt pedicures enrich the nails and the skin.
The warm glow of wall sconces and crystal chandeliers bathes the earth-hued salon in elegant light, illuminating the team of certified stylists and colorists as they reinvent hairstyles from behind plush styling chairs. They draw from professional name-brand products, such as L?Or?al Professionnel and Moroccanoil, as they perform cuts, colors, and smoothing treatments. Nail techs, meanwhile, lavish digits in decorative polishes as aestheticians shoot for epidermal excellence with facials, makeup applications, and waxing services. Staffers also offer in-house and onsite bridal services, prepping brides-to-be and their life-size cake toppers for the big day.

La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
