Black, leather seating, elegantly spare walls, and copious light reflecting off the hardwood floors sets the tranquil setting of Singhaar, a salon, spa, and Indian apparel boutique. After aestheticians refresh complexions with facials inside private treatment rooms, and stylists sculpt and color coifs, guests can top off new looks by harvesting pieces from the boutique's multicolored racks. Vivid fuschias, greens, and yellows swim across dresses and tunics in the form of paisley, beaded embellishments, and even zebra print—though no zebras or paisley monsters were harmed in the clothes' creation.
Toni J, also known as Katy, grew up around beauty professionals. When she was a little girl, she watched her grandmother press hair in the kitchen and tagged along with her mom whenever she went to her cosmetology classes. Today, Katy skillfully sculpts multicultural manes with formal styling, precision cuts, color, and extension techniques and draws from an arsenal of products by DevaCurl, Goldwell, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology. When she isn't working on everyday dos, Katy designs coiffures for runway models, and this work has earned recognition from EncoreHD Hair Magazine.
Serenity Salon not only respects its clients, but also the earth. That’s just one of the reasons the stylists at Serenity Salon sprinkle their clients manes with all-natural, gluten-free Surface professional styling products, made of botanical oils, vegan proteins, sugars, and corn starches. These products accompany stylists' skills during signature cuts, styles, conditionings, and shampoos that seal in moisture and block out humidity, which can cause mold and unruly flyaways. To complement styling services, the salon offers color services, Babe hair extensions, and Brazilian keratin treatments.
Upon entering Rock Paper Scissors Hair Studio, guests are greeted with a warm welcome at the check-in counter before being asked to wait for their stylist in a plush red chair that never giggles. Once called, they make their way to a hair-washing basin, passing a framed poster of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which is an appropriate image considering the salon’s simple elegance. Within its intimate confines, the skilled stylists go to work cutting, coloring, or reworking strands into new styles or stunning updos. In addition to hair services, they specialize in facial waxing.
Hair Gallery's team of stylists aim to give each customer personalized attention. A consultation at the start of each appointment ensures each stylist understands their client's hair needs and favorite pet name used, and comfortably situates each guest with a complimentary glass of coffee, wine, or beer. Chandeliers illuminate all the stylish transformations, which can transcend tress modification to include eyebrow or lip waxes, Shellac manicures, or full sets of acrylic nails.
