Upon entering Robar Beauty Salon & Spa, a visitor might first notice the recently remodeled interior, splashes of canary yellow or vibrant fuchsia, or the smell of organic hair products wafting through the air. But owner William Robar?an industry veteran of almost 40 years?remembers his salad days in less prosperous locations. His first salon "was so busy I didn't know where to put the people!" he laughs, recalling its cramped layout. His clientele ranged from street criminals to drug dealers. "In those days it was wild. Every walk of life came into my salon."
Now a sought-after celebrity stylist, William has clipped and styled famous hair for Frank Sinatra, Barbara Walters, and President Bill Clinton, who needed a trim before delivering a presidential speech. Inside his upscale salon, William and his team of certified stylists use their fashion instincts and mastery of the sibilant scissor language to team up with shears and craft elegant coifs for men, women, and children.
It would be nearly impossible to tally up all the haircuts, highlights, and mani-pedis stylists have performed since Daisy Nails & Hair Salon first opened its doors in 1968. More than 40 years later, they still keep up with the latest trends, priding themselves on creating celebrity-like hair and washing away the pheromones that attract paparazzi. Aside from cuts and coloring treatments, stylists shape fetching brows with threading and install cascades of flowing tresses with 100% natural human hair extensions. The salon also relaxes customers with services such as soothing massages and luxurious caviar facials.
For a dramatically different look, or just a professional style, leave your hair in Maia's hands. As a licensed cosmetologist and certified hair extensionist, she uses her knowledge and skills to beautify her clients' locks. Virgin hair extensions, Powerdose conditioning, or keratin-smoothing treatments transform hair with new texture or new lengths. Understanding that people have various schedules, Maia also accepts late-night appointments or will journey to clients to provide her beautifying services.
EZ Blowdry, which was founded by two women from France who wanted to help make clients look perfectly chic without a lot of effort, offers quick, easy blowouts for natural hair and hair with extensions. All blow-dry services include a shampoo, adapted conditioner, and a scalp massage that can make heads feel as relaxed as they are in an armored helmet.
Step into the luxurious lion's den of a man cave, where leather-filled lounges and private rooms create a town-square atmosphere fit for a gentlemanly gathering. The aptly named Royal Haircut starts with a complimentary consultation. After you and your barber decide on the best 'do for you, the trimming begins. Artful snips will magically transform mangy mops to crisp cuts. You can even request a sprucing up of your nose and ears, which may become jealous and want mini hairdos of their own. The subsequent shampoo and conditioning treatment removes any stray snipped renegades hiding amid your reformed head of hair. A relaxing scalp massage is followed by a rinse, style, and splash of cologne, bringing the procedure to a wistful yet inevitable end. Once you've had your manly tresses thoroughly shaped and sculpted by a hair artiste, you'll understand the value of a good haircut and will be able to prove Goldbach's Conjecture.
Details matter at U Style Salon. The staff constantly judges the merits of newly developed products and techniques, only incorporating those that withstand the professionals' scrutiny. Stylists exclusively use L?Or?al Professionnel coloring products, nail technicians glaze nails with polishes by OPI and Essie, and an aesthetician indulges skin with gentle, botanically derived Clarins skincare salves. The salon's attention to detail extends beyond its commitment to highly regarded, organic beauty products. During massages, clients can relax in a room featuring soft music, flickering candles, and aromatherapeutic essential oils.
