A team of four sunny stylists pampers heads at Shear Elegance Salon. Recently opened, the simple, cozy space is made elegant by wood floors, a huge black-and-white flower print, and big, round styling mirrors like portholes looking onto transformed styles for women, men, and kids. In addition to cuts and waxing, staff add color with Inoa dyes, formulated without ammonia to be odor-free and leave scalps feeling as good as the soft, shiny strands covering them look, while still preserving that clean-scalp smell clients love.
Relik Salon and Spa's stylists skillfully enhance tresses with products from Davines and Brocato, earning places as the No. 7 Best Hair Salon and No. 4 Best Hair Color on KLS’s 2012 A Lists. Floors of smooth grey slate and walls hung with textural artwork give the space an edgy, modern feel. Besides hair services, staffers also remove unwanted hair with waxing and create fuller lashes with lash extensions and daily watering.
Janine brings her deft scissor work and artistic eye to Sola Salon Studios. The chic space mirrors the savvy work done by Janine and her colleagues. They offer not only haircuts and coloring treatments but a slate of specialized services that are done with craftsmanship and precision. Licensed aestheticians channel the same precision and eye for style when installing eyelash extensions, which gel seamlessly with the face and add some extra oomph that can entrance colleagues and maybe extinguish a few tea lights.
Shelby Austin wrangles unruly strands with great ease. Working from inside Ella Bloom Salon and Spa, she snips off unwanted length and breathes new life into monochromatic locks with eye-catching highlights or strategically arranged holiday lights. As a L’Oréal Professionnel salon, Shelby furnishes all services with high-end products from brands such as L’Oréal, Brazilian Blowout, and Racoon International.
Always Beautiful makes sure its guests are swaddled from head to toe in image-enhancing services that range from chic haircuts to body waxings to pedicures capped off with glitter polish. HydraFacials sweep away brown spots, blackheads, and acne, readying faces for applications of permanent eyeliner and third eyes. Below the surface, aestheticians concentrate on stamping out headaches and allergies with ear candling treatments that originated centuries ago by the Egyptians.
