Elements of Hair Salon approaches hairstyling like an exploration in design. Its stylists try to find the right look for each unique face, perhaps adding texture with a braided updo or injecting pop with bright-teal highlights. Hair mavens can create a beautiful new 'do for any occasion, from a wedding or prom to a casual night out. Waxing and mani-pedi services complete makeovers, removing unwanted hair and painting nails to match an outfit or your dates' brilliant, scarlet eyes.
Since opening in 1996 as a barbershop, Solaris Hair Salon has undergone a complete renovation and added women’s salon services, manicures, and spray tanning. Owners with more than 20 years in the beauty industry run the salon, where a team of stylists suits facial features and styling preferences when they render men’s, women’s, and children’s haircuts. They pull from a library of more than 500 hair colors; Chi Ionic’s shades are ammonia-free, and Clairol Professional color has a soy complex that conditions and adds shine to hair.
At the salon's manicure stations, nail technicians coat digits with regular or Shellac polish, and perform specialty manicures such as an anti-aging version with antioxidant-rich grapeseed oil and pomegranate exfoliant. The team also administers spray tanning from Fake Bake, which enriches skin with a paraben-free botanical blend that promises not to turn orange, like the chameleon you’re hiding in the grass.
With its sleek decor, complimentary beer, and flat-screen TVs filling the background noise with Phillies-game highlights, I’m Sergio nods to the men's clubs of yesteryear as the barbershop’s talented stylists give each client a modern new ’do. Hair services range from a basic shampoo and style or beard trim, helping guys look spiffy in just a few minutes, to the more indulgent The Cut package, which includes a relaxing warm-towel treatment and head massage. Old-fashioned straight-razor shaves showcase masculine cleft chins, and manly manicures soften hands hardened by too many high fives with the Hamburger Helper representative. To keep up appearances between cuts, I'm Sergio also offers free clean-ups. :m]]
Whether with clippers or scissors, Gregory Rossi demonstrates a deft barber's touch that he's honed for nearly 20 years. At Rossi's Hair Studio, he and his brother Nicholas tap into their industry experience to provide cuts, shaves, and other hair services for both male and female clients. Men can polish up their looks with a standard or buzz cut, hot shaves, and even men's color camo services, which can conceal grey hairs or toy soldiers hiding in parts. Rossi's also offers women's cuts in addition to highlight, coloring, and waxing treatments.
At Silk Body Waxing Studio, licensed aesthetician Kristen Whiting might be the one removing hair from your body, but you're the one in control. Kristen allows her clients to determine the speed and technique of her waxing services. For especially sensitive skin, she might take a slow, section-by-section approach, whereas those who prioritize speed receive a swift yet gentle procedure. Regardless of their preference, one rule remains firm: no double dipping.
Kristen caters to men and women alike with her supply of cream-based and hard wax. She specializes in Brazilians, which remove every strand of hair from the front and back of the pelvic region. This and other body waxing services leave physiques smooth and primed for summer activities, such as hitting the beach or worshipping Ra. In addition to areas such as the chest, underarms, and abdomen, Kristen also waxes parts of the face, from brows to sideburns to lips. And, as a trained skincare professional, she can even accompany clients on shopping trips for skin products and provide other advice for keeping pores healthy.
