The stylists at Allure Salon & Spa strive to cultivate a personable environment—they compare the salon’s atmosphere to that of the TV show Cheers, except with less beer, more shampoo, and no patronizing laugh tracks. Inside this amiable salon, each stylist boasts more than 20 years of experience in the haircare industry. They get to know their clients before dolling them up with MoroccanOil and American Crew products in order to craft elegant hairdos or glossy, manicured nails that complement each guest’s personal style. A certified keratin straightening practitioner transforms damaged or frizzy hair into a smooth waterfall of strands, skincare specialists evoke natural skin tones, and massage therapists loosen clenched backs and shoulders with calming strokes.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
Uno The Salon's lineup of creative stylists craft custom cuts in a sleek, modern salon setting. The makeover begins with a cleansing shampoo, followed by the application of a deep-conditioning treatment. This nourishing mane-based marinade utilizes high-end, reconstructive products to leave hair silky and radiant. Clients opting for partial highlights can augment freshly sculpted strands with streaking color, planted with precision by Uno The Salon’s dye-savvy stylists. Custom cuts come to life with each snip of the shears, and stylists conclude each package with a comprehensive blow-dry and style that readies locks for long walks on the beach or short stands near oscillating fans.
Hair by Elite's professional stylists stay on top of burgeoning trends to sculpt modern noggin topiaries with a slew of salon services and products by L'Oréal and Paul Mitchell. Shears begin a roughly 30-minute mane makeover by clipping away tendrils to liberate scalps from superfluous locks and nesting seagulls. Then tress tamers bathe manes in a blow dryer's balmy waves while arranging head strings into elegant new 'dos. Finally, polished strands spill across shoulders after a conditioning treatment slakes locks, leaving them as smooth and radiant as a spotlight covered in butter. Within Hair by Elite's salon, beautifiers revitalize mops atop hardwood floors, and geometric mirrors reflect a family atmosphere speckled with ebony styling stations.

At Public Image Salon, owner and stylist Nicki believes that a hairstyle should do more than frame the face; it should tell the world who you are. That's why she begins each of her appointments with a conversation. "I start by asking questions about them without getting too personal," says Nicki. "I find out their interests." This step helps Nicki craft a look that's unique to the client's personality or professional life.
But Public Image's burgundy walls listen to more than just the sound of scissors snipping and hairdryers plotting world domination. Nicki also administers salon services such as highlights, Novalash eyelash extensions, and mani-pedis.
