The familiar hum of blow dryers and the exacting snap of scissors resound throughout Salon J, where stylists labor over their clients’ hair with practiced technique and creative savvy. Haircuts for men and women breathe new life into outdated dos, which leap further into fashionable relevancy once they’ve been revived with a color touch-up or emblazoned by highlights. Technicians also offer waxing services for the eyebrows, lips, arms, and legs waxing.
Stylist Julie Kalm cuts and colors hair inside a small, intimate salon with polished wooden floors. Before getting your hair done, you can hang out in a welcoming waiting area that has plush armchairs and new magazines so you can keep up with the hairstyles of Supreme Court judges. She and the other stylists work at roomy styling stations with full-length mirrors.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
Inside First Impression Salon & Day Spa, a team of 16 stylists, 4 nail technicians, and 2 aestheticians revitalizes clients from head to toe. Stylists carefully snip tresses into flattering ’dos and add a level of shimmery dimension with highlights. Nail techs pamper hands and feet with mani-pedis, topping nails with long-lasting OPI gel. Inside private rooms, aestheticians exfoliate skin during facials and remove unwanted hair with waxing services for the lip, chin, and eyebrows.
At Studio 1211, Barbara George taps into ancient Eastern and Egyptian techniques to soothe and beautify patrons. Inside a private treatment room, she aims to relieve pain and improve the nervous system with reflexology and shiatsu that applies focused pressure to mapped-out areas along the feet, scalp, and neck. The aromatherapy educator boasts 20 years of anti-aging product experience; during the spa's signature Egyptian facial, a milk-and-honey mask makes visages gleam back to life, wrinkles collapse into whispers, and cows and bees look on in bewilderment.
The hospitable staff at both of Venetian Tan's locations shepherd visitors to private rooms, where they can darken their complexions with a variety of sunless-tanning methods or slim down their physiques with infrared body wraps. Venetian's collection of Ergoline tanning beds simulates sun kisses with four levels of intensity during 12- to 15-minute sessions, and their airbrush technicians evenly embellish hides with a spray-tan solution that bronzes bodies without UV rays or melted third-place medals. An inventory of take-home tanning lotions and epidermal elixirs from brands such as Designer Skin and California Tan prolongs skin's newfound radiance following tanning sessions.
