The staff at Leglory's Salon and Spa maintains a simple formula for successful beauty treatments: extensively trained stylists and aestheticians plus salon-grade products. To wit, these specialists rely on Pureology shampoos and hair products to give hair a clean bounce and Redken color products to confer bright, natural-looking hues. Elsewhere in the vibrant facility, which is marked by bright-green walls and blond-wood floors, they wax brows into clean arches and groom and paint nails.
The stylists at Shear Madness channel the latest fashions in hair design when cutting, coloring, and treating hair. They offer haircuts for women, men, and children, and specialize in color correction along with highlights and retouches. To instill health and luster in their clients’ hair, they also perform keratin treatments and deep conditioning, and round out their service menu with full body-waxing services.
Tresses are kept trimmed, tinted, and textured with an arsenal of services at Bella Sorella Salon. Give locks weary from endless growth spurts a much-deserved break with a customized haircut ($20–$35), and tack on a blow-dry and style to ease hydrophobic shoulders ($45). All-over single process color saturates headmops with a new hue ($70), while a few face-framing highlights can bring out the color of braces’s rubber bands ($5 per foil). Conspicuous curls blend in at dry-spaghetti dance parties after a relaxer, and straight strands befriend bouncier brethren after a perm (each $75+).
Tipico Cafe's menu spills over with Latin American flair. Following Honduran tradition, servers slide complimentary pan de coco—or coconut bread—onto tables before every meal. Appetizers, such as the towering pyramid of crabmeat, avocado, and mango found in the Tipico tropical stack, precede meaty entrees accompanied by rice and beans, plantains, and Salvadorian cheese and cream. Freshly prepared dishes team up with the café's music and decor to create an authentic Latin cultural experience. To complement meals, a BYOB policy lets diners park a favorite bottle of wine or jetpack fueled by beer right at their table.
The attentive aestheticians at Gatsby's Hair Studio rejuvenate visages with indulgent facials and microdermabrasion treatments in a serene spa setting. During the one-hour signature facial, a skincare guru employs A-Cute Derm products to purge pores of impurities, shedding dead cells and refinishing façades with a glow as healthy and radiant as a light bulb powered by spinach. The accompanying microdermabrasion gently sloughs barren skinscapes to unveil a smoother façade and minimize the appearance of fine lines and sun damage.
Carletha and Keenia are the duo of stylists behind the curtain at Changez Hair Salon. Drawing from their experience and varying areas of expertise, they create a diverse menu of services ranging from coloring and weaves to relaxers and children's cuts. They update looks with both classic and modern cuts and provide gals with glamorous updos for weddings and special events such as family reunions. Like children very serious about their finger paintings, the stylists show off their favorite work in individual portfolios.
