At Chloe Hair Colour & Design, an Aveda salon, the staff kicks off every visit with a thorough consultation that charts the proper path toward personalized hair fashion. They whisk guests past a massive selection of Aveda products toward black leather salon chairs or black leather loungers, the latter of which nestle up next to a color bar. After haircuts, full colors, or partial highlights?just a snapshot of their service menu?the stylists teach a bit of homecare education, so that clients know it?s okay to put their hairstyles near mousse but not a mouse.
Cathy Thom understands how little changes can make a big difference. The board-certified hair colorist set out to prove that fact to clients when she opened Total Hair & Skin nearly 20 years ago. Thom, and the rest of the staff, can instantly change someone?s look with a little hair color, hair cut, or beard trim. Clients also enjoy gentle peels to cleanse faces of acne and excess oil, and quick waxing appointments to remove unwanted hair on the upper lip or eyeballs.
The Grande Salon employs a team of highly trained stylists, many of who have been in the industry more than 25 years. Below bling chandeliers that recall an antique train station, these hair gurus transform tresses with high-end products by Redken, Biosilk, and American Crew. Clients may also solicit the salon for an invigorating facial, hair waxing, or cultivate a sun-kissed complexion with a private spray-tan session.
Salon Haven is so focused on helping its clients relax that the boutique salon offers several complimentary services. For example, every tress treatment?whether it's a custom cut, single-process color, or a smoothing relaxer?comes with a glass of wine or a soft drink. Meanwhile, nail technicians augment every spa manicure and pedicure with a rejuvenating paraffin-wax treatment.
Bathing tresses, toes, and temples in 100% organic goodness, Banana Tree Organic Salon peels fumes, dyes, and ammonias away from all of its products to reveal a client's natural radiance. During each shearing, Banana Tree's hair designers apply master training from Hair Trends International to mold manes into fashion-forward coifs ready for work, play, or their hybrid progeny—plork. Mini-facials employ skin-soothers ripe with natural cleansers and creams to enhance glow without moth-baiting light bulbs. During or after the service, organically decompress in the easy chairs of Banana Tree's relaxation room, where guests can sip complimentary organic wine or chocolate-banana smoothies to soothe stomachs as well as minds.
With the belief that true beauty can be found "within the sparkle in your eyes, the confidence in your steps, and the lilt of your laugh," Royal Treatment Day Spa Salon assembles a medley of services designed to bring out clients' inner royal majesty. Amid Romanesque columns and floral decor, the experienced team spruces up bodies with treatments that range from waxing and eyelash tinting to facials and makeup applications. Stylists can deftly transform the full spectrum of hair types with locs or flattering cuts, and massage therapists administer 10 types of massage to target pain or promote a sense of relaxation not felt since being nestled in a blanket of scratched-off to-do lists.
