Wood floors, warm lights, and modern decor highlight Image Hair Studio, where stylists and staff work from a full menu of hair and waxing treatments. At their workstations, skilled stylists outfit men’s, women’s, and children’s heads with fashionable cuts. Those wanting an entirely new look can go for single- or double-process color. Other treatments such as partial highlights accentuate warm or cool skin tones or draw attention away from unicorn-horn implants gone awry. Additionally, staff uses hot and cold waxes to remove unwanted hairs on the face and body.
In a studio praised by the Baltimore Sun for its feng shui approach to balancing inner and outer beauty, Zen Head Salon's experienced stylists revamp exteriors with personalized hair and nail services. Shellac manicures keep nails clad in fresh hues for weeks without smudging, chipping, or cracking into silhouettes of Teddy Roosevelt. Thin sheets of polish cover keratins, with UV rays speeding the curing process between coats. Alternatively, scissor-wielders collaborate with clients to design hairstyles that accommodate personal tastes and profiles before shampooing and cropping overflowing tendrils. Moroccanoil treatments restore elasticity to shorn locks, replenishing protein for stronger manes that look great when flexing in a leotard.
An Aveda-concept salon, Visual Changes caters to guests' individual needs by providing personalized pampering experiences. The style-boosting Aveda hair spa treatment, which includes a blowdry and style, will keep your follicles feeling loved and your loved ones feeling your follicles until you feel justified charging them a petting fee. The Caribbean therapy manicure pampers skin cells and nerve endings and the special occasion makeup application decorates newly brightened mugs with botanically based pigments, giving faces a cheerful change from clown paint.
If your eyes are the windows to your soul, your hair is the tunnel to your mind. Keep your mind-matter from escaping with today's hair-taming Groupon. For $19, you get two Floyd's Cut haircuts at Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, a $38 value. This traditional barbershop with modern rock flare is about 13 miles to the west of Baltimore in Ellicott City.
La Bella Salon owner Michele Daniels's handpicked staff of stylists wields Paul Mitchell products to snip and style coifs in a sunlit, hardwood-floored space. Wielding skills honed at monthly training sessions, they'll bond or sew in extensions, weave braids, and highlight hair with bold color as clients recline in sleek chrome salon chairs. Alternatively, aestheticians wax fuzz from faces or revivify visages with antioxidant-packed chocolate treatments, tightening collagen masks, and deep-cleansing serums during a medley of facials.
Paul Mitchell–certified stylists tame coifs within Lucky Three Barber Shop's rock-themed studio, decked out with vinyl records, classic album covers, and prints of throwback cinema stars. The staff keeps up with the latest in men’s and women’s hairstyles, and won’t hesitate to perform a total hair overhaul if given the go-ahead. Aestheticians are also on hand to wax eyebrows into shape and apply makeup for special occasions. For the guys, a hot beard and head shave will leave skin as silky-smooth as a newborn saxophone.
