Inside a white bungalow-style building on McNeil Drive, Selma Berlet, Kerem Ozen, and Sarah Starling, a trio of devoted hair artisans, make up the core staff that engineers their business' meticulous brand of highlights, perms, and other hair services. Regular clients arrive for prescheduled appointments with their preferred stylist knowing that the principled staff members refuse to rush through any hair, nail, or beauty service. Kerem, for example, honed his methodical approach during the course of a 35-year career spent in the hairstyling trenches, where he learned the value of thoroughness and taking your scissors out for dinner and a movie once in a while. Along with his colleagues, the master-level stylist and color specialist wields an arsenal of pro-grade products by Redken, Paul Mitchell, and the in-house line Kenneth and Russ.
Shawn Michael Salon's owner, Michael Hembree, views his work as an educational opportunity as well as a luxurious service. He likes to teach clients about why he does what he does, whether he's coloring hair, applying makeup, or styling with professional products. A spoonful of sugar helps each lesson go down—literally; Michael offers every client wine, coffee, or soda as they enjoy his services and insights. He wisely surrounds himself with other professionals who share his vision of teaching clients how to care for their own beauty while at home or stranded on a desert island.
I'Muniq Styles Salon & Spa’s menu of services includes revitalizing treatments for the hair, skin, and nails. The salon's team of stylists snip away with deft cuts for men, women, and children, as well as coloring and highlights that can bring any hairdo or Expressionist painting to life. Elsewhere in the spa, technicians render skin smooth and hairless with Brazilian waxing, and manicurists spruce up the digits with gel and Shellac nails.
Owner Shaune Haas and the team at Bang Salon & Day Spa are always looking to stay up on modern beauty trends, which is why their menu has recently expanded to include color services with Paul Mitchell's new ammonia-free formulas, and lash extensions that range from natural to dramatic looks. The salon's sunless tanning services are contemporary as well, using Norvell's organic airbrush formulas, which are cruelty-free and infused with anti-aging antioxidants. Bang Salon also offers skin treatments, ranging from the acne-fighting Deep Cleanse to the anti-aging Cyto-Luxe facial, using pharmaceutical-grade gloTherapeutics products for results-oriented skincare. Of course, you can still get a good, trendy cut and color here?Bang's stylists are more than capable of updating your look with ombre color, extensions, or a keratin smoothing treatment that was flown in from the future.
