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.

All the services take place inside Natural Beauty Clinique’s suite, which has mint- and apple-green walls and treatment rooms with large windows.
Hands play an essential part in interpersonal communication. But, if hands themselves could talk, they might request a little time off. At Growing Hands Salon & Spa, lead stylist and nail technician Maureen schedules these mini-vacations for hands and feet alike.

Aided by Affirm Keracare and Moroccanoil products, stylists also care for that other kind of keratin with haircuts and treatments designed to leave manes stronger, longer, and healthier. The team also augments 'dos the old-fashioned way, prepping clients for proms, weddings, and special occasions with updos and extensions. No matter what pampering services clients choose, they can extend its effects at home with the help of the salon's boutique's-worth of pro-grade products.
