Products by brands such as Pharmagel, Aquage, Sexy Hair, Moroccanoil, Vavoom, and Essentials jump into clients' hair and hands at Lakeside Hair Boutique and Day Spa. That's because the stylists use them during hair services, but also make them available for sale in the boutique. It's not just high-end products that refresh guests, though. It's also the facials, hair extensions that last up to one year, soothing massages, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. So, in addition to stylists who re-imagine hair-scapes by using Japanese hair-straightening techniques, nail technicians host clients in cozy black leather thrones during mani-pedis. The latter might involve shiny shellac gels that last for up to two weeks without chipping or fading. Elsewhere—in private rooms—massage therapists work away knots and pent-up stress. Their methods include specialized Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy massages, as well as just playing a tambourine on your back.

Half kids' barbershop, half toy store, Snip Snaps is equally adept at styling haircuts and hosting birthday parties. Kids can pick a fun chair for their trim, choosing from racecars and motorcycles, and then watch TV or pick out a kids' movie from the salon's extensive library. Snip Snaps even has PlayStation 2 plugged in to facilitate hassle-free haircuts. And adults needn’t worry; they can recline on a more traditional salon chair for their own cut and style.

Licensed aestheticians at Art of Aesthetics Skin Care tailor each skin care treatment to their clients' needs. They believe in diagnosing and preventing skin issues instead of finding a quick fix. They also enhance their custom facials with specialty mask treatments such as the Myoxy-Caviar mask to fight wrinkles, and the soothing rosacea treatment packed with green tea, chamomile, and licorice.

Dean and Lisa Rodrigue always talked about opening their own salon. In 2010, they took the leap and founded Couture Salon, a chic hair salon with dark hardwood floors and upscale touches like brocade accent walls. Since opening they business, they’ve sharpened their hair-styling skills and broadened their service menu. In addition to waxing and spray-tan treatments, they offer facials and eyelash extensions. Couture Salon stays open until 8 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays to accommodate the moon if it needs a haircut and those with busy work schedules.

It's understatement to say Trendsetters of Cheshire's owner Joan Morgan knows her way around a salon chair. After all, the Paul Mitchell–trained stylist has been brandishing her scissors for more than 19 years, 15 of which were spent in management. She even flaunts her expertise outside of the salon as an educator and advisor for Joico/ISO's and Beth Minardi's signature product lines. The impressiveness doesn't end with the owner—the other expert stylists remain on the cutting edge of the latest trends and industry techniques, too. In addition to trimming hair and rooting out long-lost hair picks from the 1970s, the talented staffers can add color, perform chemical treatments, and oversee advanced procedures such as Awapuhi KeraTriplex frizz-nixing treatments. The salon menu even extends to airbrush tanning and waxing, so customers can put the finishing touches on their new looks in one fell swoop.
