Moxie Blue Salon's seasoned stylists snip curls and hydrate locks with precise haircuts and salon services prefaced by a thorough consultation. After discussing desired angles and which cheekbone most deserves to display its tattoo, a scissors wielder frees scalps of split ends during the 45-minute haircut. Once lighter and layered, hairdos bask in a deep-conditioning treatment that hydrates heads and relaxes overly stressed strands. Feel free to have a stylist sprinkle coifs with partial or full highlights, a strand-coating lightener that adds dimensionality without inducing the misguided application of crayons. Or wrestle unruly locks into silky submission by undergoing a Control Zero treatment that works to transform frizzy hair into straight, shiny manes without the use of formaldehyde. Within the salon, sleek orange chairs pop against the clean white walls and brown counters as stylists snatch blow-dryers hanging leisurely from the ceiling.
A combination of technical prowess and creativity steady the shears and blow through the hairdryers at Bernard's Salon and Spa, a beauty center that aims to have its clients feeling like they just stepped off the cover of Vogue. Not all the staffs' attention is focused on the scalp, however—aestheticians deftly apply cosmetics before nights-on-the-town, perform rejuvenating facials, remove unwanted fuzz with wax, and shape cuticles during mani-pedis. Massage therapists, meanwhile, use swedish and deep tissue techniques to ease tension from the body, making clients appear more relaxed, approachable, and less likely to pop a neck vein.

Q&A with Christina, Owner
When and how did you first realize you wanted to be involved in hair styling?
Since childhood, [when I was] always doing [my] friends' and family's hair.
Part of being a good stylist is mastering the art of conversation. What are some pro tips for talking to strangers?
Always try to find out their interest and build the conversation around that. Asking about their kids are always a great way to start as everyone loves to talk about their kids.
The stylists at Phoenix Salon & Spa make it their mission to tame tresses?no matter the length, shade, or texture. The salon has two locations that offer haircuts, highlights, and all-over color for men and women. Clients can smooth unruly locks with a keratin or relaxing treatment. Elegant updos and professional makeup applications can help clients prep for a wedding or an important photo booth session. For show-stopping nails, indulge in a french manicure or opt for glittery tips. Spa services are also available at the Mount Laurel location?from organic veggie wraps to reflexology massages.
Amavi Salon opened in 1992. Since then, it has cultivated an inventive approach to haircare the staff calls "fortetherapy." While their menu of services looks deceptively similar to what one would expect at most salons, their guiding philosophy is different. Fortetherapy refers to the staff's efforts to put the health and integrity of clients' hair at the forefront of every treatment, even if it means flying in the face of industry trends. Their entire selection of products is plant- and botanical-based, lacking aniline dye, ammonia, and all the other things Dr. Doom drizzles on his salads. Amavi Salon's color products, specifically, squeeze a salutary dose of ceramide silk proteins, aloe vera, avocado oil, and anti-oxidants into each application.
