Cheveux Salon is home to a team of five internationally trained hairstylists and makeup artists, and what a tasteful home it is. With cobalt-blue salon chairs and silver-framed mirrors at each workstation, it's the perfect setting for clients to indulge in a haircut that highlights their own natural beauty. Speaking of highlights, the team specializes in coloring techniques that range from traditional lowlights to bold streaks.
Similar to the mirrors found in the dressing rooms of Broadway theaters, the long mirrors mounted on the walls of Salon Craft are framed by thin lights, lending each styling station a glamorous energy. But the real show can be viewed in the mirrors’ reflections where stylists engineer sleek layers, wrangle fussy curls, and smooth down frizz. Private waxing sessions also manage difficult strands, lifting away unwanted fuzz from upper lips and brow outskirts. While waiting on highlights to set, clients may sip coffee at the refreshments bar.
Usha Salon & Day Spa might best be known for meticulous threading services, which twice garnered a spot on Baltimore Magazine's annual "Best Of" list. But the skills of the house stylists and aestheticians don't stop there. They can also reshape coifs with stylish cuts and add face-framing dimension with highlights services. Nearby, Usha's henna artists use traditional Indian techniques to install intricate designs that are perfect for standing apart from the crowd or blending in with a pile of tea-stained lace. Clients can also take a break from humdrum chores with soothing facials and massages.
Paradise Salon and Day Spa offers visitors a chance to take a vacation from everyday stress with a menu of full-body beautification services. Dry hair can take a permanent hiatus thanks to the salon's intense haircare treatment, which nourishes parched strands with a formula rich in plant and silk proteins. Dry skin is likewise tackled with a hydrating and brightening caviar facial or an aromatherapy body wrap that swaddles skin in cotton sheets after brushing it with soothing essential oils. If a change in scenery won't fit into your hectic schedule, change what you see in the mirror instead by booking a complete makeup makeover or sprucing up lifeless strands with luminous highlights. Waxing services provide all the fun of getting ready for the beach without the itchy sand or annoying sunshine, and mani-pedis extend sandal season year-round to show off colorful coats of regular, french-style, or shellac polish.
Under the direction of senior cosmetologist and makeup artist Dakota Mabe, the hairdressers at Tasteful Tresses snip, color, and style strands of all textures. The team pairs hair-sprucing services, such as extensions and frizz-fighting keratin treatments, with facial waxes and custom makeup to completely transform each client’s look. In addition to women’s hair services, they also tidy up the hairdos of men and children, and trim beards so clients can get a competitive advantage in pie-eating contests.
