An Aveda concept salon, Wavelength provides a vast bounty of salon and spa services delivered by the hands of an experienced staff. Stale noodle nests can be effectively pampered with Wavelength's top-notch hair products and skillful styling. Instead of donning a fez year-round and loitering at smoky casinos, show off lustrous locks after receiving a haircut and style ($45). Practice proper hair care at home or en route to work in the driver’s seat with two travel-size bottles of Aveda Shampure shampoo and conditioner ($3.50 each). Finally, don an eye-catching frontispiece while shedding excess hair weight with your choice of a lip or brow wax ($14 each). The professional aestheticians go to great lengths to ensure each experience at Wavelength parallels the calm obtained from a bedtime story read by Morgan Freeman. Call to book your appointment.
Armed with airbrushes and customizable tanning formulas, Tan To You's technicians travel to Dayton-area salons and clients' own homes to spread sunless glow. The airbrushing experts supply all necessary equipment, and they offer up plenty of tips that help clients achieve and maintain the best color. In addition to standard airbrush tans, the staff also hosts mobile tanning parties, bringing along wine or martinis. Alternatively, they paint fingers with custom designs during mobile nail services.
For the last decade, the staff at Tavernier's Salon & Spa has revitalized appearances and moods with a slew of salon and spa services. Defined by its brightly colored walls and artwork composed of primary yellows and reds, the interior is home to a team of diligent stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists.
Tavernier's hairstylists wield Redken and Matrix products with full-color treatments and strategically placed highlights to add depth to monochromatic hairdos. Nail technicians prettify appendages with Opi polish and soothing, hydrating dips into paraffin wax, and skincare specialists administer facials such as the one-hour basic European facial, which opens up pores like they're interviewees on Oprah so that they release their pent-up dirt and leave with a cathartic sense of cleansing and exfoliation.
A graduate of the esteemed Elite Hair Academy, Victoria Simpson has professionally styled hair since 2010. Within Salon Noir's cozy brick house, she showcases her talents, which include elongating locks with natural-looking extensions, brightening strands with eye-catching color, and trimming tresses into stylish looks. Using haircare products packed with natural ingredients, Victoria and her fellow stylists' other services include administering precise cuts for men and women and creating updos for special occasions. After appointments with Victoria, clients can consult one of Salon Noir's cosmetologists for skin-enriching services, such as facial waxing and subtle makeup applications.
At Lennartz Olde Time Barbershop, thread choppers relax head pastures with a shampoo massage before shaping overgrown follicles into a custom or military cut and shaving leftover tufts around the ears and neck. The men's rolling-cream facial gently exfoliates dead skin cells to smooth facades, while the men's clay-mask facial ensconces kissers in imported English clay to clear pores of dirt leftover from childhood tetherball games. Afterward, barbers lather up whiskers in warm suds and swathe faces in hot towels to soften the bristles, ensuring a smooth, even shave via straight razor or sharpened protractor. A final cold-towel application and a splash of 1935 Lucky Tiger aftershave top off the pampering.
