Wild Strawberry Hair and Nail Studio's team of master Eufora Elite?certified stylists beautifies hair, skin, and nails using natural and organic products. Beneath twinkling crystal pendant lamps, stylists massage deep conditioners into scalps and cut, perm, and highlight hair. Conversely, the salon's aestheticians deftly remove unwanted body hair, leaving smooth, clean expanses of skin. The full-featured studio also provides nail and tanning services with coats of gel polish for fingers and toes and custom airbrushing to gild untanned limbs.
Many of the nails that emerge from Younique Soul Nail Bar sport dazzling designs—intricate swirls of glittery gemstones, vibrant gel flowers of fuchsia and gold, white rays slicing through azure backdrops. Others are decorated more subtly, with smart white French tips or sleek red acrylics. The nail salon’s expert technicians tailor their manicure, pedicure, and foot-massage services to accommodate each client’s unique style and schedule.
The crackerjack tress tamers at Schaper's Salon whisk frazzled mops into majestic manes with an ample slate of hair-styling services and extension treatments that employ eco-friendly products. Split-ended patrons and newly employed Sasquatches can turn to one of Schaper’s Salon's stylists for women's ($50+), men's ($30+), and kids’ ($15–$25) follicle chops, as well as intricate updos ($50+) and silky conditioning treatments ($15+). A breezy blowout and style ($25+) leaves hair as thick, vibrant, and velvety smooth as a whipped-potato mudslide, and a formal updo styling fondly echoes the halcyon prom coifs of yesteryear ($50+). Coloring ($70+) and highlighting ($90+) services further the self-expression of drab head-hides and rebellious zebras, and free consultations are available for relaxers, perms, and keratin treatments.
Using top-of-the-line haircare products from quality brands such as Pureology and Paul Mitchell, BeautyFirst's expert stylists mold lackluster locks into follicular masterpieces. Upon arrival, customers consult with a talented tress trimmer to figure out a fashionable new look for their noodle nests, whether they prefer a trendy bob, a timeless trim, or an elegant swan. Next, dull dreads are shampooed and colored with a choice of either full or partial highlights before being snipped and molded into moremanageable states during an expert cut and style.
Tired and tense bodies will enjoy The Chopping Block's relaxing hour-long Swedish massage, with a licensed massage therapist. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, is the most popular type of knead. It uses long, connective strokes and kneading to melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. Or, if long hours conducting commuter trains have left your skin sullied and sallow, opt for the European deep-pore-cleansing facial. One of The Chopping Block's licensed aestheticians will slough off dead skin cells with a thorough exfoliation, extract unsightly dermal invaders, and apply a specialized mask to the skin, all while your hands heat up in warming mitts. As the mask sets, your hands are removed from the mitts and joined with the décolleté area for a soothing massage, and when the treatment is complete, the aesthetician will provide you with a personalized skin analysis and tips on how to hold your head to more prominently feature your "best side."
From the outside, Blades Salon and Spa looks like a dream home. Impeccably landscaped shrubbery frames its front doors and tall windows, and a fountain sends ripples through the flower-accented pond in the front yard. The greenery continues in the back of the house, where trees and plants circle another small pond, a popular spot where local pyrotechnicians cool off after starting a shirtsleeve fire.
Inside this idyllic setting, experienced stylists cater to clients' hair needs, whether customers are looking for a fashionable cut and color or hair-replacement services for adults and children. As part of their commitment to helping clients look and feel their best, staffers partner with Locks of Love, using donated hair to create top-quality hair prosthetics for children dealing with long-term hair loss due to medical issues.
