Acting as lash pioneers within Ohio, Botanica Organic Salon owner and veteran stylist Phyllis DiSalvo is one of the state's first Xtreme Lash stylists. Along with aesthetician Angela Chulack, they first rest clients on a comfortable massage table within Botanica's serene environment. Afterwards, they proceed to place a faux eyelash application onto clients' existing lashes, working to lengthen them to any desired length, width, or intensity. The salon's services eliminate the need to apply mascara every morning, and help clients do away with allergenic makeups, painful curlers, and damaging waterproof formulas.
The staff at Shannon Michael Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, are not ones to learn through trial and error. Rather, they go through purposeful monthly training to stay apace of the latest trends and techniques. Haircuts and coloring from pro- and master-level stylists testify to the success of their mission, with results both elegant and cutting edge. The staff also deliver elaborate nail services, such as hot-stone manicures and peppermint foot masks with warm towels and hand and foot massages.
For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup, and pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. Then once you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
Danielle Goulis wears many hats. As the owner of Dani Leigh Hair Boutique, she invests in her clients' experiences from the moment they call to make an appointment until the second they walk out her door. As a stylist, she focuses on modern cuts and wields a host of skills that go beyond her shears to dyeing, highlighting, and up-dos worthy of wedding days. Her salon also gives full attention to skin with waxing services and airbrush tanning that looks so natural, the sun may clam it for its own handiwork.
Karen Couchie loves sailing in the Caribbean. As a result, the bright colors of the tropical paradise might unconsciously seep onto the nails or hair of her clients. As a nail technician and a Redken Specialist, she can artfully color nails or color and crop hair, but Karen doesn't stop at hairdos and finger hairdos. She's also a licensed tattoo and lash artist, so she can complement clients’ natural brow and lash lines with treatments that draw more attention to the eyes than blinking neon goggles. Her light touch can also be seen in the hairline strokes or color blocking she uses to fill out brows during permanent-makeup applications, which don’t smear or smudge when subjected to water.
