The interior of Hair Flair could almost be a hairstyling museum. Next to the window, an antique perm machine dangles its medieval tentacles over a mannequin's head. On the wall nearby hang cutting shears and a blow dryer Ben Franklin could have used.
But these vintage curios stay right where they are: on display. Hair Flair's fashion-forward stylists, Wendy Boyk and Laurie Shoupe, rely on modern hairstyling techniques when making clients look good. Together, they ply their beautifying trade for women, men, and children, performing precision cuts, texturizing highlights, and hydrating conditioning services.
In 2006, the staff at Ms Nails began decorating nails with brightly-colored polish. Since then, they've moved to a downtown Valparaiso location, expanded their team of nail techs to include a massage therapist, started to provide hair services, and built upon their service menu to incorporate CND shellac manicures, facials, and massages. One can only assume that their continued growth will manifest itself in the hiring of a mascot shaped like a giant nail file, though these rumors have no basis in reality.
Salon Diva's staffers cater to practically every beauty need, offering hair- and nailcare alongside waxing and makeup applications. And thanks to a newly minted partnership with The Cinnamon Tree, they've expanded their pampering services. Now customers can enjoy relaxing massages—including therapeutic, hot stone, and deep tissue—as well as a selection of facials.
At European Style Salon & Day Spa, beauty experts take the helm on an extensive selection of services ranging from facials and massages to manicures and hair services. In that spirit, Tricia Glavin flaunts her credentials as both a stylist and an aesthetician, revamping hair with cuts and color applications and hydrating skin with body wraps and other skincare treatments.
The Paul Mitchell–trained stylists and skilled aestheticians at Anointed Beauty Salon & Day Spa coax inner elegance outward with a spread of salon services and full-on beauty makeovers. After consulting with their clients, stylists grab shears or bottles of conditioner and set to work imbuing hair with volume and flattering accents. On the other side of the salon, technicians brush and polish nails during relaxing mani-pedis. Further removed from the bustle of the main floor, seasoned aestheticians expertly defuzz faces brow to chin with warm wax, gently uprooting unwanted follicles and leaving faces as smooth and hairless as a marble bust of Mr. Clean.
The stylists at Sandy's Hair Design bolster their 25-year track record by continually seeking knowledge from Redken and Paul Mitchell educators. After sitting down with clients for a consultation, they break out an array of luxurious products and services. Pigment experts man the Redken Color Bar, combining art and science as they distill rainbows to create custom hues, and nail technicians pamper hands and feet with spa mani-pedis and OPI polish.
To encourage and pamper women who are fighting cancer, Sandy's Hair Design offers complimentary makeovers through Hello Gorgeous! It also supports Children with Hair Loss by donating real hair for wigs and extensions.
