It’s fitting that the walls at New Beginnings Hair Salon are painted robin’s-egg blue, as the salon’s stylists are known for hatching attractive new looks every day. With shears and professional Matrix coloring products, they craft styles that complement their clients’ faces and personalities. The service menu at New Beginnings doesn’t stop at the scalp. Nail technicians are on hand to decorate nails with vibrant shades of polish or portraits of your 10 favorite relatives.
The Face and Body Place's Robin Poplin liberates faces of daily cosmetic regimens by lavishing eyes, brows, and lips with vibrant and steadfast permanent makeup. The licensed and certified derma-technician calls on 13 years of experience as she carefully and confidently guides an immaculately sanitized probe across the chosen area, imbuing the lower layers of skin with a permanent ink that complements each patient's unique coloring. The makeup, which can not run, smear, or rub off, leaves a natural-looking appearance that can last up to three years before requiring brightening in a refresher session or by napping on a stage actor's pillow. For those with sensitive skin, Robin also offers allergy tests and topical anesthetic before each session.
At Ambiance by Melinda at Regas Skin Care Center, aesthetician Melinda takes a results-oriented approach to skincare with 10 facials that target common skin concerns such as acne, wrinkles, and irritation. She uses professional products from Éminence Organics and Obagi in all her facial services; many of the products contain natural ingredients, including fruit enzymes, paprika, and herbal muds. Éminence body wraps are also on hand, to help tighten, hydrate, and detoxify skin.
At Casablanca Nail Bar, technicians ensure that every client receives a personalized, brand-new experience. Mineral soaks and acrylics can accompany manicures; pedicures can be paired with sea-salt scrubs, massages with hot candle wax, or pearl cream. Casablanca also performs mani-pedis for girls aged 10 and younger, helping them make a good first impression with the earthworms they dig up at the playground.
Though all of the aestheticians at Strandz Salon are veterans of the beauty business, their styling menu is cutting edge. This focus on both tried and true methods and the latest hair trends and technologies instills in them the ability to tackle any hair project, be it a simple cut with foil highlights or a complete revamp of hair’s texture with a smoothing keratin treatment or softly flowing perm. They use lauded products such as Moroccanoil hair masks and Keune’s Tinta hair-coloring system, which features ingredients that protect newly tinted strands from changing color when exposed to UV rays or embarrassing high-school photos.
Though its stylists have been voted some of the area’s best by the Daily Times Readers’ Choice awards, Strandz isn’t just a hair salon. Nail technicians are also available to file and freshen up nails with long-lasting gel polish, or guide clients to the private tanning rooms for lay-down or standup bronzing sessions.
