Unlike a caricature artist who needs a vacation, expert stylist Denise customizes her sessions to each client’s unique face-shape and personality.

Men’s barber cuts are also available with luxurious add-ons such as a hot towel treatment that promotes relaxation.
Professional Barber Shop’s flagship storefront has stood in downtown Hartford ever since 1927, remaining as a testament to a time when hot-lather shaves and shoe shines were routine. Now with three Connecticut locations, Professional Barber Shop stays true to that era by offering an array of gentlemen’s grooming services and pamphlets touting the benefits of measles vaccines.
While sipping a cold drink or hot coffee, guests enjoy haircare treatments that toe the line between practicality and indulgence. Basic trims leave hairdos and beards looking well coiffed. Straight razors swipe through hot lather and shear away stubble before a cooling dollop of aftershave lotion. Gentlemen’s facials in a 1920s style can indulge cheekbones with 3 Lucky Tigers massage creams and as many as 10 steaming towels. Once finished, guests can return home sporting a pair of freshly shined shoes and a timelessly dapper look.
At Salon 22, a great hairstyle is like a fine diamond: shiny, precisely cut, and multidimensional. Stylists summon these qualities in a sparkling space lined with earth-toned walls and decorative reeds. Armed with photos of their favorite looks, clients help design ’dos that amplify bright eyes, stunning cheekbones, or fashion-forward angel halos. In the process, stylists may sketch pictures of prospective coifs to gauge clients' reactions. They also teach clients how to hone their hair at home, using products by Aquage, Biomega, and Simply Smooth. Goldwell hues power color services, which range from eyebrow tinting to full-head foils. Texture services such as body waves and keratin treatments can make tresses pin straight or as rippling as an ocean watching a horror movie. In addition to prettifying locks, the styling team can pamper nails with cuticle softeners and glamorous polish.:m]]
The staff at Artistic Images shares their hairstyling skills with their clients, but also with other stylists around New England as styling educators. That’s not to say that they don’t keep up with their own training; in fact, they keep abreast of hair’s latest trends in order to cut, color, permanently straighten, or otherwise re-texturize hair in the way their clients envision. Their knowledge as educators helps them make product suggestions so that clients can maintain salon looks at home.
