At Salon Via, every color and haircut is a team effort. For only after a consultation with the client can the stylist create a 'do that best represents their personality. The salon's owner and an experienced stylist himself?leads the staff as they work to discover each client's perfect hue, ideal length, and favorite flavor of hair mousse. The team has some non-human help as well, thanks to shelves stocked with products from the likes of Moroccanoil, White Sands, Bain de Terre, and Surface Styling.
The experienced master stylists at Princeton Salon and Spa overhaul coifs with customized salon services that employ plant-based Aveda products. At the onset of each one-hour haircut appointment, the stylist consults at length with the client to determine hairstyle goals and penchants for standing in wind tunnels before cleansing and soothing scalps with an Aveda stress-relieving treatment and massage. Scissors snip tresses into personalized cuts before sculpting locks into a sleek style. Mane-tamers also add full or partial foil highlights using Aveda’s 97% naturally derived color, which adds subtle shimmers or all-over tinting to hair canvases. Like a greedy child's visit with Santa, appointments for full highlights typically last about three hours.
After an extensive career in the Atlanta area, celebrity stylist William Murphy and Salon Encore are once again offering an acute attention to detail and the highest levels of service. Whether you're looking for long locks, a short bob, curls, or a new hue, Salon Encore's stylists can outfit you with a fashion-forward style. Their work has been featured on the cover of beauty magazines and fashion events worldwide. At Salon Encore, the licensed stylists offer chic haircuts, brilliant color, and extensions, and help men, women, and children alike look their best. They also offer a host of treatments designed to make hair look healthy and radiant. Their keratin smoothing treatments straighten and de-frizz hair, and their slew of Recitals haircare products imbue manes with a silky sheen more tempting to touch than a button that says "Do Not Touch."
LaVonda, the eponymous stylist of Madam LV Salon, draws on experience accrued over the course of a 16-year career that is still going strong. She and her team of stylists emphasize styles based on the natural states of each client's hair. They perform haircuts, shampoo follicles, and host makeup parties, all with an emphasis on augmenting the innate beauty of hair rather than constantly treating it with chemicals. Beneath shelves brimming with products from Phytospecific and Juvexin, the team also educates clients so that they might maintain hair at home or even while modeling for an oscillating-fan catalog.
At Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids, barbers and stylists focus on making kids feel at ease, trimming bangs and braiding hair as youngsters watch their favorite DVDs on demand. While settled behind the wheel of a Buzz Lightyear–cruiser or pink Barbie jeep for a highlights treatment, kids can switch from watching a DVD to playing the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. The kid-centric space caters to parties as well, where girls can get their nails done and strut down the runway during a fashion show. Besides offering parties and kids’ cuts, Sharkey’s team cuts adults’ hair, too.
The threading technique that Brow Arch uses has some pretty substantial advantages over tweezing or blowtorching. Suitable for any skin and hair type, threading uproots hairs by lassoing them with a cotton thread, a process that doesn't damage the surrounding skin and is less irritable to sensitive skin types than waxing is. Since some clients prefer waxing, though, the studio still uses that method to remove hair from the hands, legs, and full face. Complementing the skin-smoothing services are facials that make use of ingredients such as herbs and fruit.
