The internationally trained staff at Ziyan Salon & Spa pampers patrons with an emphasis on high-class luxury. The experts draw upon the skills they learned at Wella, Redken, and Paul Mitchell schools and using quality products such as GLO Theraputic, which focuses on skin health and are only sold to certain skincare professionals. They stay atop haircare trends, employing wet and dry hair-cutting techniques and keratin-smoothing treatments, and they cosset skin with deluxe spa treatments that can include indulgent massages and pillows heated by Cupid's embrace.
The luxury extends to the salon's décor of rich red walls, plush rugs snuggling up to leather couches, and flat-screen TVs. The salon's most opulent offering, the Enchanted Mayhem fashion show, celebrates the newest hairstyles with a night of catwalking, dancing, and Fabergé-egg juggling.
Though they have more than 30 years of combined aesthetic experience, the staff at Euphoria Salon & Spa refuse to let their fashion sense grow stagnant. Instead, they attend continuing education efforts in order to stay abreast of new styles. Modern technologies and trends then affect their conduct in the salon, where they trim, color, and texturize hair with products from Alfaparf and Pureology. In the spa section, they exfoliate pores with a chocolate sugar scrub—an even sweeter combination of skincare and dessert than an oatmeal cookie bath. Their facials target ailments from signs of aging to acne, and cosmetic consultations call on makeup from glominerals to prep complexions for glamorous events. Massages, waxing treatments, and mani-pedis round out the menu.
Skin serves as the body's first defense against the elements, and aesthetician Susan Mefford helps clients reward it for its loyal service. At Susan E's Skin Care Studio, she mends daily wear and tear with powerful facials that use traditional techniques, such as exfoliation and facial massage, as well as more advanced technology, including cosmetic resurfacing, photo rejuvenation, and traveling skin back through time to its childhood.
The Hive's staff embraces the nature element of their salon's name, tending to heads with haircare products that are 100% vegan and organic. These include curl-defining spray from AG, amonia-free hair color, and beef-free shampoo. The stylists use these solutions on men, women, and kids inside the airy space, which is filled with local artwork illuminated by sunlight pouring through the large front windows.
Owner and master stylist Alicia Riggs calls her salon a “home away from home,” and it’s easy to see why. Elegant floor tiles and peach-hued walls imbue the space with comfort as Alicia crafts flattering layers and dabs color on bland strands. Salon guests may also seek the mani-pedi expertise of technician Traci Kennedy, who has more than two decades of nail-pampering experience.
