Kimberly Ferebee, Hairspray Salon & Spa's resident nail technician, works alongside her aesthetician sister and a crew of stylists to beautify every client who walks through her door. While others work in mirrored stations and leather chairs, Kimberly's domain consists of the couches reserved for pedicures. There, she buffs, polishes, and paints her customers' nails as they lean back, enveloped in plush cushions. She enhances every service?even acrylic fill-ins?with a complimentary massage, leaving guests as relaxed as sleepy puppy who just can't keep his eyes open after a long day of work.
The list of things to do while waiting for your color to set is short: read, stare at the wall, add your shoes' soles to the salon's walk of fame. Cut Loose Salons, however, offers a much better option. Clients may use any of the salon's electronic tablets, each of which is outfitted with Netflix streaming. But that's just the cherry on top at this Paul Mitchell Signature salon. Using Paul Mitchell products, as well as products by Redken, TIGI's Bed Head, and Johnny B., skilled stylists create sleek scissor cuts, brighten strands with full or partial highlights, and craft elegant updos for special occasions. In addition, the salon's technicians remove unwanted facial fuzz.
Inspired by the resilience, purity, and beauty of its namesake bloom, Lotus Hair Spa aims to relax and rejuvenate patrons with detailed salon services conducted in chic, calm environs. Stylists and makeup artists tend to locks and fa?ades with premium Sojourn, Alfaparf Milano, and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics products. Services typically begin with a complimentary consultation to ensure that each guest understands the cut, color, or lightning-bolt goatee that they'll be receiving. Guests receive numerous perks throughout their visit, including a complimentary shampoo with scalp massage, cosmetic touchups, and beverage service.
Natural light pours through the salon's large bay windows onto sheer beige curtains, Oriental-style privacy screens, and ornate woven area rugs. Amid these Old-World accents—sunlight was around hundreds of years before the colonial age—skilled stylists chisel layers and render highlights with products by Sojourn and Big Sexy Hair. But hair is just one strand on the spa's voluminous menu. Swift brow- and body-waxing sessions can complement indulgent all-natural mani-pedis or Galvanic Nu Skin treatments that refresh the complexion. The staff also whisks clients to a private room for Moroccan fantasy massages or accommodates their beach-season aspirations with a high-pressure tanning bed.
Todd Stewart, a seasoned stylist whose past includes a stint at Paramount Studios, leads a team of hairdressers that have each honed their skills through years spent in the industry and through a rigorous in-salon Skill Certification program. Tight-knit team members arm themselves with a multitude of high-quality products from brands that include Moroccanoil, Tigi, and Todd Stewart's signature line.
After a thorough consultation with each client, they go to work crafting new ’dos, freshening up current looks, or modeling manes after the customer’s favorite city skyline. Services range from basic cuts to the salon’s specialty color treatments, which are administered by Schwarzkopf-trained colorists.
The space at Studio Salon & Spa goes on forever??or so it would seem. Dozens of elegant mirrors span the avocado-hued walls, adding dimension to the cozy central room. There under miniature spotlights, stylists specialize in highlights and lowlights, adeptly transforming locks with advanced techniques such as ombre and baillage.
