Including owner Nicole Walz, 10 stylists beautify locks at Blush Salon, and they each bring distinct skills to the table. After assessing which options best complement each client’s face shape and hair, the stylists sculpt dos with cuts, revitalize looks with color, or add texture with straightening or curling treatments. The salon’s stock of haircare products, including Aveda and Pureology, help visitors maintain their new looks after each appointment. Whereas stylists reshape hair, the salon’s aestheticians remove it all together during waxing sessions.
The trained technicians at Absolute Beauty revitalize facescapes with artfully applied facial procedures utilizing sophisticated technologies. Microcurrent facials fight off fine lines with safe electrical impulses, tapping out orders to muscles in Morse code to firm up and increase the production of collagen, temporarily tightening the face after one treatment and building muscle memory after several more. Ultrasound facials shiver off dead cells with an exfoliating high-tech hum, ultimately opening up skin for rejuvenating hydration and moisturizing. In addition to treating faces to space-age pampering, Absolute Beauty supplements epidermal diets with vitamin C enzyme applications in every treatment.
Fashion trends are always evolving. That's why the dedicated stylists of The Parlor Salon undergo extensive additional training with top design houses such as Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon, and Wella to keep their skills sharp and their repertoire diverse enough to meet the styling needs of any client. The salon harnesses Bumble and bumble products to keep hair smooth when styling it into a new ‘do or to recall fond styling-chair memories during complimentary bang trims between appointments. Many of the stylists bear training in cutting-edge treatments, such as Liscio Japanese retexturing and Platinum Seamless hair extensions, which use high-quality Remy cuticle hair to create faultless extensions that are undetectable to the eye, the touch, and the carnival's "Hair must be this long to ride" signs. Whether clients come in for a quick wax or a full day of styling, coloring, and makeup services, they're free to savor a bevy of complimentary refreshments.
In Gloss Salon, local art adds a touch of creative inspiration to the space?s chic, slate-gray walls. Amid the paintings, Tara Kienbaum draws from her 10 years of skincare experience to swiftly lift clients' unwanted fuzz with European wax, prepping them for swimsuit season and the summer of streakin'. Tara's fellow staffers, meanwhile, put their continuous education to use as they concoct on-trend cuts and imbue locks with even color or dimension-bending highlights. While they focus on salon and skincare services, the Gloss Salon also strives to improve the community by donating 10% of all product sales to local nonprofits and charities.
Kelly, a licensed hairstylist at Designer Hair Studio, has more than 15 years of experience, and she knows what it takes to make sure a client is happy with a new ?do. She can snip strands, streak highlights into hair, attach extensions, and perform updos for special occasions, such as weddings and prom. To supplement her stylings, she uses top-notch products from Redken, Pureology, and TIGI. Also among her specialties: waxing treatments, which she can perform on a number of areas.
Between the pristine cream-colored walls of Minx Salon & Spa, stylist Lilja Birtcil works her magic on overgrown hair. She specializes in men's cuts, complementing flattering styles with relaxing massages and hot-towel treatments that whisk away work-related tension or nervous energy caused from interacting with a parking meter. Elsewhere in the elegant salon, which is situated inside a converted home, stylists tend to hair and skin with relaxing spa services.
