Three independent aestheticians at Street Side Salon buff, polish, and style clients’ hair and nails, creating sleek new looks for all who enter. In a station designed to evoke the essence of a mini spa, Jessica Hentrich uses a decade of nailcare experience to pamper hands and feet. Weary feet can rest in a heated basin, or patrons can sink into an overstuffed chair.
On the other side of the salon, Debe Hentrich and Linda Hessling create face-framing hairstyles. An experienced cosmetologist and hair artist, owner Debe snips and colors strands, infusing them with high-quality products from Moroccanoil, Keratin Complex, and Pureology. Her healthy-hair program leaves manes looking lush, and her eye for style is evidenced by the salon’s overall appearance. Linda Hessling expresses her hair expertise by shaping layers and lengths to fit each individual’s face or to match their looks with photos of their pets.
Studio J Salon’s stylists expertly wrangle overgrown hair with a pair of scissors or—for that one stylist—a pair of scissorhands. They also tend to unwanted hair all over the body, waxing away tufts of fuzz with ease. To glam up clients even more, the staff tackles fingernails and toenails with relaxing mani-pedis that end in a coating of colorful polish.
While most 23-year-olds were trying to figure out their career path, Angelo was busy opening his own salon. And three expansions and more than two decades later, he's still at it. Each day he works with his team of talented stylists and aestheticians to accomplish the goal he laid out in 1991: to create a one-stop beauty shop where clients could get all of their aesthetic needs met. To that end, Angelo employs nail artists who pamper the digits of patrons waiting for hair colour treatments to finish processing, as well as aestheticians who dole out rose, mud, or chocolate baths that can be paired with massages, skin treatments, or giant chocolate duckies.
The certified aestheticians of Tresses and Toes beautify patrons with the smoothing, trimming, and polishing ministrations of the salon's service menu, focusing on follicle and nail services. A family salon, the staff caters to men, women, and children with specialized services to fit each client's needs. The stylists manage manes with a variety of cut, color, and texturizing treatments, wax bushy brows and upper lips, and tint lashes for darker winking. Women's and men's mani-pedi services whip paws into shape and can be augmented with an array of spa scrubs and massages to calm palms and heels. To top off tips, patrons can choose from a rainbow array of OPI polish more vibrant than a chameleon family reunion.
At ColorFX, skilled stylists and aestheticians execute a slew of services with a special focus on color and color correction, earning themselves a nomination for Alive magazine's Best Salon award. The friendly staff also treats feet to pedicures and hands to a variety of manicures, including hot-oil manicures, and nail art. To keep up on the latest trends and to prevent hair from devouring clients à la Cousin Itt of the Addams Family, the experienced stylists participate in continuous training and education.
Advanced certified stylist Audrey Johnson draws on six years of experience, including experience as a corporate trainer for Xtreme Lashes, each time she customizes a Jo Mousselli Xtreme Lash treatment that befits her clients? distinct facial structures. After crafting the look, she then carefully adheres the chosen set to natural lashes, resulting in a more voluminous look without the mess of mascara.
