Heading down Main Street in historic Clarence Hollow, you might notice a whimsical three-story structure with a clock at the top. Salon in the Tower lives at the base of that building. What began as a staff of two has now grown into a team of 14 where stylists continue ongoing education at Bumble and Bumble University in NYC to stay up to date on the latest cutting, coloring, and styling techniques. In addition to performing the trendiest cutting and coloring techniques, the providers at the spa portion of the center, perform spa treatments such as massages, facials, and mani-pedis against a backdrop of dark wooden columns, trim, and wall paneling. They use Pevonia's botanical- and marine-based products for skincare services, and they carry the Olivia Garden line of bamboo brushes, which can help with home hairstyling or distract an attacking panda.
Founded in 1974 in Memphis, Tennessee, by the eponymous Sam Ross, Fantastic Sams is a family-friendly salon geared toward quality. Today, the brand spans more than 1,200 locations, employing a legion of experienced stylists as they wage wars on bedhead and uneven bangs. Wielding shampoos and conditioners crafted with provitamins and soy proteins, the staff offers services such as haircuts, color treatments, and straightening treatments.
Stylist and owner Kimberly Heeb helms Salon on the Avenue, a full service salon and spa that delivers treatments for body, hair, and skin. Standing behind black leather chairs and broad mirrors, stylists set to work cropping, coloring, and conditioning locks, while nail specialists perform digit upkeep across the salon. Inside the spa’s cozy private quarters, clients can indulge in skin-clarifying facials or massages that release tension more than kneading a stress ball into a fine powder.
A Head of Class Salon and Day Spa?s staff unfurl an array of beautifying services amid the creative ambiance of a grand fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and chandeliers. Haircuts and coloring treatments beautify heads, and small vats of honey wax remove unwanted tuffs for a finish as smooth as Dean Martin?s forehead. Spa services include facials, massages, and pedicures administered in a relaxing whirlpool footbath and massage chair. Bridal packages prepare ladies for that special day with updos, manicures, and makeup.
The stylists at Hair Resistable Salon have only one goal: to help clients look and feel their best. To accomplish this, they nourish strands with healing L’anza products and craft modern styles with Design Essentials serums. In addition to adorning hair with highlights, braids, and weaves, the staff can add a coat of polish to digits and whisk away unwanted facial hair.
After years of salon experience, Melanie Speidel found herself disillusioned with the industry?s often impersonal standards. She decided to combine her know-how into a joint venture?A Place in the Park?where she planned to offer classic salon and spa services with a highly personal touch. The popular salon quickly outgrew its first location, and in 2010 she moved into a spacious, stand-alone building with blond hardwood floors and plenty of natural light.
