The stylists at Allure Salon & Spa strive to cultivate a personable environment—they compare the salon’s atmosphere to that of the TV show Cheers, except with less beer, more shampoo, and no patronizing laugh tracks.

They get to know their clients before dolling them up with MoroccanOil and American Crew products in order to craft elegant hairdos or glossy, manicured nails that complement each guest’s personal style. A certified keratin straightening practitioner transforms damaged or frizzy hair into a smooth waterfall of strands, skincare specialists evoke natural skin tones, and massage therapists loosen clenched backs and shoulders with calming strokes.

Glamorizing services—including makeup application, waxing, and eyelash extensions—prepare visages for weddings, special events, and a night out hitting up various book clubs.
