The savvy stylists at Shear Sensations refurbish unkempt mop tops with a slew of professional services. After inspecting the hair's overall condition, an experienced scissor wielder will reinvigorate parched locks with a Matrix deep-conditioning treatment before carefully pruning scalp gardens to expunge split ends and kudzu. Next, full highlights transform monochromatic manes into eye-catching thread bundles of flair. For scrunchier ‘dos, two-hour keratin treatments varnish follicles in a protein-packed serum, which diminishes frizz, smoothes out curls, and imbues tresses with a silk-pajama-like shine. With proper care—such as keeping treated hair dry for at least three days and using the salon’s recommended shampoo and conditioner—newly straight and easy-to-style strands can partake in overly confident hairflips for up to three to five months.
“It’s not just a haircut, it’s a hair experience.” So goes the motto at this Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, where stylists go above and beyond to make each and every hair feel totally indulged. Shampoo becomes anything but ordinary at the salon's lather lounge, where heads can combine an intense conditioning treatment with a relaxing massage of the neck, shoulders, scalp, or hands. Or, opt for the salon's beauty ritual, which nourishes the scalp with an olive oil sugar scrub, before stylists spoon feed caviar to each strand and wash impurities down the drain with a sparkling Pierre water rinse. The color bar menu allows clients to mix and match shading services such as all-over color with a color glaze or minimal grey touch-up with a matching lash tint, and every color service includes s five minute conditioning treatment to ensure new hues look healthy. Beyond being masters of the latest cutting trends, several of the stylists at Aurelio are also certified Deva Curl curly hair specialists, while others are experts at installing Cinderella Hair Extensions, which are made of 100% human hair.
Amid crystal chandeliers and ornate, gilt-framed mirrors, the stylists of Salon Elemis administer precision cuts and keratin treatments using products from Redken, Schwarzkopf, and Paul Mitchell. They can add length to locks with Hairlocs extensions. Nearby, nail technicians beautify digits with OPI and CND gel polishes, and an eyelash specialist employs NovaLash extensions and lash perms to make eyes pop and smolder.
Certified electrologist Susan Ullmann has one main goal: to make you feel better about yourself. She uses electrolysis—a hair-removal technique that uses pulses of electricity—to remove unwanted hair. Because electricity is just cooled off sunlight, Ullmann can use it to treat all types of hair and skin.
Heads tilt under cascading water, before slow, steady fingers slather heads in luxurious L'anza, Aveda, and Keune hair products. The team of stylists at Shear Innovations Hair and Day Spa kicks off appointments with indulgent shampoos not only to cleanse and hydrate hair but to set the stage for their trademark exemplary service. The team demonstrates this commitment to service by consulting with clients before performing any of its signature haircuts, color treatments, or bridal updos.
