At Salon of RR’s, new coats of color deck out strands and hands alike with highlighting and mani-pedi services. Texturizing treatments and cuts grace hair with new silhouettes; for example, Brazilian Blowout treatments leave hair straight for several months. The treatment also makes styling hair more manageable by smoothing the hair cuticle and eliminating frizz, much like coating hair in floor varnish.
It's rare to find a hairstylist that makes house calls, and even rarer to find an entire beauty team willing to come to you. But that's exactly what the crew behind Beauty Entourage & Salon do best. The staff of cosmetologists, hairstylists, and makeup artists travel on-location to help customers get ready for weddings and other occasions, with a service menu that includes everything from hair and lash extensions to airbrush tanning. And for those who prefer the traditional salon experience, the team also has a permanent parking spot at Salon Alexander.
Wurstle endeavors to revolutionize the classic American hot dog by concocting a menu of completely customizable and mess-free gourmet sausages. Three types of baguette encase half a dozen sausage choices—each MSG- and filler-free —in standard, junior, or mini-sizes, which customers can each crown with an array of toppings such as homemade mustard, spicy ketchup, or Wurstle-kraut. The kitchen crew trades in their deep fryer for the oven, complementing their hand-held feasts with healthful baked accompaniments of french fries, Nutella puffs, and piping hot sodas.
Despite its scrappy name, Jagged Edge Salon's interior is bright and polished, with sleek hardwood floors and electric-blue walls. From the bowl to the chair, stylists wash and style hair with top-shelf products from Matrix and Redken, thickening locks with moisturizing conditioners or illuminating them with all-over highlights. In private rooms that line one wall of the salon, clients can grab their favorite teddy bear and lie down in tanning booths of varying levels.
A graduate of Xenon International Academy, Traci Marie of The Hair Room Salon and Spa enhances her breadth of aesthetic services with ongoing training in everything from Mirabella makeup and LaBrasiliana keratin treatments to Norvell spray-tanning application. Traci specializes in wedding services, coiling brides’ tendrils into formal updos, and takes a collaborative approach to each individual head she styles, addressing client concerns during preliminary consultations before every in-studio or onsite service. Natural products, such as Moroccanoil—a paraben- and sulfate-free solution that protects color and leaves hair silky and smooth—and certified-organic makeup, eschew additives to leave hair and faces with a glossy, natural sheen that’s enhanced by highlights and all-over color. Heads leave Traci’s capable hands brimming with knowledge about how to re-create styled locks at home, eliminating the need for clients to list Traci as their emergency contact.
