The only thing Debra Elliott loves more than the Indianapolis Colts is cutting hair. That’s why for 13 years, she and her crew of skilled stylists have rehabbed tresses with a full-service menu of cut and coloring treatments. The salon also employs highly trained aestheticians to perform such therapeutic services as spa facials, massages, and setting fire to your boss’ desk.
The scissors at Peace, Harmony & Hair have cut through a lot of strands. They have removed split ends, lopped off great lengths, and trimmed the hair on men for a close-cropped look. Sometimes, they sit one out and let bowls of hair color step in to dress locks in a new hue or add highlights. Additionally, warm wax makes an appearance while removing overgrown brow hairs or extra fuzz on horns.
At Creations by Christina, experienced stylists transform tresses with precision cuts, vibrant hues, and deftly sewn weaves, washing finer hair clean with shampoo by Biolage and polishing coarse coifs with Joico products. Mane tamers chat with clients as they snip face-framing styles for men and women and dye locks to a sun-kissed gold or a black as dark as a chalkboard’s soul. Chemical treatments relax curls and frizz to add elegance to an evening on the town and moisturize to ensure manes retain their youthful shine and bounce. Weaves augment natural headscapes with sewn-in strands or adeptly glued tracks, and patrons can opt for a dandruff or protein treatment before persuading the other patrons to join them in a game of human chess on the salon’s checked tile.
Aesthetician and skin expert Melissa Erin reassures her clients: "Great skin is not born; it's made." This philosophy is her mantra as she helps her clients overcome a range of hard-to-correct skin conditions, such as wrinkles, acne scars, and redness. She achieves this by basing all of her facials, peels, and waxing services on each client's unique skin type, which she assesses during a pretreatment evaluation.
Founders Joe and Sue Moore wanted to create a professional salon for stylists and clients to gather and collaborate. It wasn't until they teamed up with their son Travis and designer David Yeager that they were able to follow through with their vision. Today, MDG salon | studio boasts two exquisite, modern spaces that flaunt two-story windows and an interior adorned with industrial and classy touches, as well as a full list of expert stylists.
Eyes by India first opened its doors in Indiana to provide threading as an alternative to waxing. Threading is more precise than waxing and causes less pain, redness, and burning when removing unwanted fuzz. Now with nine locations in two states, Eyes by India’s staff of specialists completes more than 100 hours of training in threading and service etiquette before applying those skills to patrons’ faces at work and image-conscious teddy bears at home. During appointments, cotton thread twists over hair, tweaking hairlines and brow lines or removing all traces of fuzz on the neck, chin, or upper lip.
