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.
A licensed health professional, Tracy Hill Fisher wields a combination of sterile probes and know-how during hair-removal treatments at Electrolysis of Wallingford. During electrolysis sessions, she uses a fine probe to release a burst of energy in hair follicles, destroying both the cells and the follicles' ability to grow new hairs. Electrolysis, which works on all skin and hair types, leaves treated areas across the body and face permanently hair-free and smooth.
The professional stylists at Captiva Salon Paul Mitchell beautify men and women with cuts, color, and other haircare services. At the lather lounge, a ceiling-to-floor water wall pairs with relaxing music for a soothing experience as stylists perform cleansing scalp massages. Haircuts end with a finishing style and recommendations for at-home care that are more practical than sleeping standing up for a week to avoid bedhead. The salon's color bar showcases a veritable library of tress hues, and the rest of the interior sparkles with egg-like hanging lights, wooden styling stations, and mocha-colored molded ceilings.
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.

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.
