The stylists at the locally owned SH Salons cut, style, and revitalize coiffures using high-end haircare products from brands such as Shiva, Silkology, and Clio. They also straighten locks by applying keratin treatments and relaxers, forgoing the now-defunct practice of hammering them over an anvil. Dedicated to bringing out clients’ beauty from head to toe, the experienced staff can also apply makeup or polish nails with dazzling hues.
The name might be Faces365, but this spa caters to any and all skincare needs. That means personalized facials, body waxing, microdermabrasion treatments, and Yon-Ka Paris botanical products.
For those new to the face-pampering game, Faces365's Healthy Results Intro Facial is ideal. It's a 50-minute service with two customized treatment masks, plus a relaxing face and shoulder massage and warm, scented towels. Vitamin C peels and microdermabrasion treatments can be added on to facials for extra skin beautification. Advanced skincare comes in the form of resurfacing treatments, non-invasive face lifts, and more.
Andrea Reyes works alongside her crew at AndreaMagaly Hair Boutique, performing many of the same services as the stylists and aestheticians. She seems perfectly at home on the salon floor, crafting new and exciting hairstyles with cuts, coloring treatments, and extensions. Despite her expertise?or likely because of it?she can't really pin down which service is her favorite to perform. She takes pleasure in even the simplest of salon tasks, claiming that her favorite part of the job is to see clients "leave looking good and feeling better than how they came."

Before modern-day salons, barbershops were a haven for masculine camaraderie with a side of hair services. When Joe Grondin, a master barber of more than 30 years, opened the first Roosters Men's Grooming Center, he worked to recapture that ambiance, but updated the styling techniques. Today, gents there revel in a slow-paced atmosphere and contemporary services. Patrons sit comfortably during cuts that culminate with aftershave and a dash of powder on the neck and vintage facial shaves, complete with a cleansing and towels warmed by hugs from bald eagles. The stylists and barbers only enlist professional products from brands such as American Crew and Woody's, which are tailored to male hair and emanate fragrances like a bouquet from a Camaro.
Dulce Jimenez, owner of Art & Color Hair Designs, is a seasoned hairstylist with more than 15 years of experience in the industry, and is an expert hair colorist adept at highlights and corrective coloring. In the spirit of collaboration, the skilled Jimenez shares her salon's client base with a team of stylists who perform services ranging from classic cuts to ammonia-free color. Each member of the team conducts an in-chair consultation before touching a hair on the client's head. From there, dead ends can be trimmed way, unruly manes can be straightened out with a keratin treatment, and dull color can be transformed with the balayage highlighting technique. The salon's resident aestheticians aim to soften and smooth complexions with Dermalogica's Age Smart, ChromaWhite TRx, and UltraCalming product lines. The skincare experts take care to pull only from lines using gentle formulas that are fragrance-, mineral-oil-, and hot-lava-free.
