Though it hangs outside a cozy cottage, the fleur-de-lis that dangles over Salon Senoj's entryway hints at the ritzy decor inside. Dark, lacquered hardwoods shine as clients explore the waiting area in front of a brick fireplace or head to a styling chair hidden in the secluded back room. There, staffers soothe strands with Redken, MoroccanOil, and Pureology products before they hand them symbolic pink slips and cut them off. The stylists also specialize in accenting beautiful fringes with nail services and eyelash-extension applications.
Stylist Delaney Sinclair invites customers to Salon Bliss, where she tends to heads of hair with salon services. She deftly snips and styles new, eye-catching ’dos, complete with blow-dry services. She also augments heads with bursts of color via partial highlights, full highlights, or full color treatments.
The technicians at Clary Sage Salon & Spa do more than simply cut hair. They use their haircuts and coloring treatments as a means to transform their clients’ outer appearances, giving them looks to match their unique personalities. And they do so using the salon’s own brand of products, which they designed specifically to nurture and restore hair that’s thinning, color-treated, or infested by families of birds. The salon also offers relaxing massages and facials, both of which find a welcome place in the transformative process.
Master designer and educator Helen Reed heads up the hair services at this AVEDA concept salon. She is supported by a bevy of talented aestheticians, including nail extraordinaire Courtney, who can tag fingertips with natural-looking gel nails that dry under ultraviolet light and are made to withstand medium-intensity games of Tiddlywinks. While hours vary, appointments are available Tuesday through Saturday each week.
At Monkey Bizness Salon and Day Spa, stylists and technicians pamper customers with hair-and-beauty services. After jaunts at leather hair-washing stations, customers can receive stylish cuts at salon chairs surrounded by green walls and hanging lights. The full-service salon and spa also offers packages that include massages, facial treatments, manicures, pedicures, and haircuts.
