The stylists at Salon Chi revere the raw power of nature. That’s why master stylist April D'Allessandro-Andrews and her team rely on organic treatments and products to shape and style hair. Instead of shampoos with harsh chemicals and sulfates that damage hair and leave a gross aftertaste, they opt for washes that harness the calming effects of olive, argan, soybean, and Tahitian oils. And in lieu of ammonia-riddled color, they enlist plant-based serums to finish dos. You’ll also notice the lack of formaldehyde in their nail polish, the organic ingredients in their chocolate-facial wax, and the natural minerals in their talc-free makeup.
Salon 101's stylists are already well-versed in the art hair designs, style, and colors. But that doesn't stop them from taking their skills to the next level with continuing education classes each month, where they also stay updated on the latest techniques and trends. This, combined with Salon 101's family-friendly, welcoming vibe, ensures that every guest who sits in a styling chair will feel at ease. The salon offers everything from cuts and styles to keratin treatments and real hair extensions that attach with keratin bonds for ease on the hair and scalp. Along with hair care, Salon 101 offers soothing aqua massages where powerful jets pulsate warm water from the toes to neck, and back again, and as a bonus, this magic happens all while you are fully clothed and dry.
Under the direction of J. Christian Rea, the stylists at Salon 647 snip, color, and arrange hair into trendy ‘dos. They perform services with high-quality Goldwell and Moroccanoil products, using the latter to nourish parched or damaged strands. Treatments take place amid the chic decor of moss-green walls and mirrors draped with zebra-print panels.
Chi Hair Design's staff spotlights each client's natural beauty with equally natural products. Staff members strive to administer their hair, nail, skin, and cosmetic treatments with beauty-enhancing concoctions—such as plant-based glosses, henna hair colors, and talc-free mineral makeup—that are mostly comprised of organic materials. The team refuses to use products that contain formaldehyde, ammonia, or molten lava.
Soft overhead lighting refracts off the salon's hardwood floors, and massive decorative fans hang as a green-and-white contrast to the taupe walls. To complement the efforts of the beautifying team, resident disc and video jockey Matthew Andrews can showcase his music-mixing skills at weddings and parties.
Though the enclosed porch might fool visitors into thinking they're entering a family home rather than a salon, Bauhous soon flashes its cutting-edge style credentials by showing off such contemporary treatments as Brazilian blowouts and Bio Ionic hair straightening. In front of a single long mirror that stretches across multiple stations, stylists brandish high-end products from Rusk, Paul Mitchell, Iso, and Chi, which lend luster to locks without the neck strain associated with gold-plated doo-rags. Bauhous’s staff also ousts unwanted fuzz from brows, bikini lines, backs, and legs with body and facial waxing
