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.
Danalee Settle and Katie Coffman bring their styling acumen to their respective chairs at Jagged Edge Salon. Danalee is a Matrix color specialist, and Katie has been doling out dazzling cuts and colors for seven years. The two of them breathe new life into their client’s personal style with on-trend haircuts and youthful highlights that accentuate each person’s most flattering features and most articulate thought bubbles. Inside their vibrant studio, with Tiffany box blue walls and bright pink accents, the staff also offers men’s and women’s haircuts, mani-pedis, and tanning services.
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.
Le Cachet Lounge's experienced aestheticians beautify both faces and bodies with eyelash extensions and microdermabrasion facials as well as airbrush tanning, full-body waxing, and makeup services. They use top products such as Xtreme Lashes, which can add curve, length, and thickness to eyelashes before modeling gigs or visits to a Jumbotron-operator convention. Knowledge from Glo-Mineral Makeup certifications shines during makeup applications, and elixirs infused with vitamin C, salicylic acids, or moisturizers give strength to facial treatments.
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.
When guests walk out of Salon Ji, they always feel different from when they entered, whether they’re reveling in newfound confidence due to a fresh hairstyle or an aura of relaxation after a soothing massage. In addition to cuts and color, stylists sweep hair into elegant updos, add extensions, or decorate locks with trendy feathers, which can help clients establish a good rapport with neighborhood sparrows. Nail specialists treat hands and feet to mani-pedis using regular or long-lasting Shellac polish, which remains chip-free for up to two weeks. The staff further pampers guests with facials and body waxing.
Pendant lights cast a soft glow over Salon Ji’s sleek purple-gray walls, which contrast with a collection of vibrant paintings. Waiting guests can cozy up in modern black armchairs and browse the web with complimentary WiFi while sipping coffee.
