Distinction Salon owners Shawn Durant and Kelly Larkin pride themselves on providing their staff with plentiful educational opportunities to enable them to enhance locks with the best precision cuts and multi-tonal color. A specialist in razor cuts, Durant's own styling touch can toggle between subtle and edgy with a simple flick of his artistic wrist, and his modern, yet classic approach makes him popular among clients who received a bad cut elsewhere. Using products from Aquage and Wella, his styling team adds dimensional color to update dull locks and can smooth frizzy, unruly manes with Brazilian keratin treatments that leave hair as silky as Bing Crosby's pajamas for up to four months.
While waiting to add length and volume with natural-looking hair extensions by Euro-So.Cap and Aqua Hair Extensions or pops of bright color with feathers, clients may sink into the plush couch guarding Distinction Salon's waiting area, where they may also enjoy the light, sweet aroma of fresh cut flowers and vases filled with fragrant shampoo.
The licensed nail techs at Lovely Nails give a big hug to Mother Earth by using 100% natural products––just one step of many they take to ensure comfort. Guests enter the shop to find wall prints of lush greenery and rippling pools and are then invited to lounge in cushy hydrotherapy pedicure chairs. Each chair is decked out with disinfecting pebbles and pipe-less technology for bacteria-free relaxation. Lovely Nails further adheres to health standards by using sanitary pouches and implements sterilized in a medical-grade autoclave.
At Natural Beauty Clinique, trained technicians contour the body and tighten the skin with noninvasive radio-frequency technology. The oscillating waves heat tissue beneath the skin to coax the fluids and lunch money out of fat cells. The technology is also used for anti-aging procedures, such as face and neck lifts, thanks to its galvanizing effect on collagen production.
