The Color Palette Salon's savvy stylists beautify tresses at a family-centric salon and take pride in explaining the products they use. While color is their passion, stylists also deliver fresh cuts and conditioning treatments. Extensions and texture services add a new dimension to hair, just as magical wardrobes add a new dimension to the lives of British schoolchildren. Along with hair services, staffers also perform waxing services and makeup applications.
For Dr. Goodnight, it's not about instant results: "I want to be able to get together with my patients when we’re all in our 90s to talk about what a wonderful life we’ve all had and how great we still feel and look." To that end, he joins his wife, Marianne, a certified nurse, in taking a whole body approach to long-term beauty.
Board-certified in four different medical fields, including facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Goodnight can revivify clients from the inside out with services that range from hormone replacement therapies to surgical face-lifts. But the transformations don't end in the treatment room. As certified fitness trainers, the husband and wife team educates clients on how to increase their health through nutrition, exercise, and avoiding open manholes.
Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
Instead of spreading herself thin over an exhaustive menu of aesthetic treatments, La’Shawn Sterling—the sole practitioner at her eponymous skin studio—has mastered four services. And she stands behind them proudly, christening them all as “ultimate” treatments. For the ultimate facial, she uses a personalized blend of Dermalogica products selected to improve specific skin conditions; for the ultimate body treatment, a circulation-stirring massage precedes a coating of a hydrating brown-sugar scrub. La’Shawn also performs facial waxing and applies individual lash extensions, accenting faces more pleasantly than umlaut tattoos above each eye.
From haircuts to perms to styling, the team at The Klip Joint does it all. The beauty experts snip fresh coifs for men, women, and children, and flatter features with color treatments such as face-framing highlights. Should a more dramatic makeover be desired, they can change the texture of tresses with perms or smoothing keratin products. Facial waxing and makeup services are also available to discreetly conceal any lingering evidence of a werewolf mask.
Inside this full-service hair and nail salon, a team of stylists uses the latest treatments to update looks. Keratin formulas create smooth, shiny manes that are complemented by trendy cuts and color treatments. Nail technicians, meanwhile, adorn tips with long-lasting gel or airbrushed artwork. All treatments take place amid Salon 141’s elegant decor of twinkling chandeliers, warm wood finishes, and bronzed mirrors.
