The stylists at Josie Studio One Salon come armed with a diverse lineup of haircare products, which spans from Moroccan Oil solutions for conditioning hair to American Crew products designed especially for men. They also call on Redken's popular line of styling and color products—appropriate enough considering their ranks include a hair colorist certified by Redken Fifth Avenue New York. When the stylists finish straightening and partial foiling clients' hair, they send the clients along to the salon's other specialists, who darken and lengthen lash lines with synthetic, semi-permanent eyelash extensions and wax away hair along the lip and inside the chin's backup supply tanks.
Organic skincare and haircare products populate the shelves at Onusara Salon and Spa, where staffers harness the power of these natural elixirs to customize treatments for each client. Their specialty services employ new-age methods, such as exploiting the energy in crystals and chakras, to enhance natural beauty and help relieve stress. This emphasis on relaxation extends to the massage studio, where therapist Carolyn Morrison Phillips collaborates with 100% organic essential oils to help heal and restore weary musculature. She also taps into modalities such as tui na to stimulate acupressure points and fire cupping to purge the body of pore-size Frankenstein's monsters.
Cut It Out's owner Melanie Clemons shapes tresses with modern cuts and enlivens them with color and partial highlights. The expert mane manager trims hair into textured layers, frames bare foreheads with bangs, and crafts sideburns into conversation-enhancing exclamation points to update styles. With the ministrations of Redken products, clients can choose to colorize locks with an all-over single color to add sheen and depth or opt to flatter facial features with a set of glowing partial highlights to accentuate eyes or a favorite casual opera mask. Melanie completes looks with a blast from the blow dryer and the perfecting strokes of a brush's bristles.
Before you even get to Elevation Salon and Spa, you can figure out exactly which practitioner you should be working with. Just take a look at the staff's bios, which include not only their experience levels, but also their specialties. You can find a good match whether you're looking for a fresh new bob, a prenatal massage, or just a stylist with your favorite vowel in their name.
The service menu is just as diverse as the staff. In the salon, stylists use Redken and Bumble and bumble products during cut and color treatments, and nail technicians massage hands and feet with MoroccanOil bodycare products before coating nails with OPI and Shellac polishes. In the spa, massage therapists can treat tension with services that range from hot-stone massage to reiki. For their part, aestheticians set to work removing dirt and oil with custom facials and excess fuzz with waxing.
Across four floors in the same building, Capital Fitness promotes further wellness with 35,000 sq. ft. of weights, top-end cardio equipment, and more than 80 classes per week. Several varieties of yoga and pilates populate the schedule, as do TRX, spin, and zumba classes. After workouts, patrons can grab a protein drink from the juice bar or relax in the sauna.
The staff at Hybrid Salon combines artistic sensibility with technical savvy, and the result is one dynamic salon. And folks have noticed. For three years running, Hybrid has taken home the Talk of the Town "Costumer Satisfaction Award". Along with their outsized dose of talent, the staff arms themselves with only high-end Redken coloring products in their services and treatments. Beyond basic cuts and colors, they offer Brazilian blowouts, waxing treatments, nail art, and a full blow-dry bar. No matter the treatment, stylists make a point to meet with new clients before every service to ensure a personal touch.
Silky curtains, damask artwork, and earth-toned candles set the mood at Bare, where the staff massage therapists and aesthetician fuse Eastern healing techniques and Western beauty treatments. On top of waxing and reiki, they specialize in prenatal massages that help relieve tension on weight-bearing joints and ease emotional stress that can be caused by pregnancy.
