The eponymous owner of Darrell Barrett Salon strives to keep his salon at the top of its game by constantly broadening and deepening his stylists' skill sets with ongoing workshops and seminars. The salon's minimalistic interior allows the stylists' handiwork to take center stage amid bare floors, white brick walls, floor-length mirrors, and bold, black styling chairs. Flattering cuts come in both classic and high-fashion varieties, and a range of specialty hair services can make locks pop with color after partial or full highlights. Glamorizing services—including makeup application, waxing, and eyelash extensions—prepare visages for weddings, special events, and a night out hitting up various book clubs.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
Led by the pedigreed Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg and Dr. Michele Shermak, the Plastic Surgery Center's three high-tech facilities focus not just on beautifying clients but also on educating them about the surgical process. Relax under their capable care with a round of frown-line fighting Dysport, which aims to imbue new vitality into the manifold folds of aging countenances. A sequence of five quick injections can reduce the wrinkles and fine lines caused by aging, stress, and artisanal cheese-tasting. While effects are not permanent, the procedure may stop the muscles that cause furrows from contracting, providing temporary forehead toning.

At Public Image Salon, owner and stylist Nicki believes that a hairstyle should do more than frame the face; it should tell the world who you are. That's why she begins each of her appointments with a conversation. "I start by asking questions about them without getting too personal," says Nicki. "I find out their interests." This step helps Nicki craft a look that's unique to the client's personality or professional life.
But Public Image's burgundy walls listen to more than just the sound of scissors snipping and hairdryers plotting world domination. Nicki also administers salon services such as highlights, Novalash eyelash extensions, and mani-pedis.
