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.
At Lighten Up Salon & Spa, a black-and-white checkered ceiling looks down on hardwood floors as aestheticians bustle away at pampering, styling, and bronzing their guests. As clients relax in cherry-red swiveling chairs, stylists shape brows, root out unwanted hair with wax treatments, and transform coifs with perms, haircuts, highlights and lowlights, and color treatments. Forsaking its name, Lighten Up turns down customers’ white balance with tailored airbrush-tanning treatments that imbue skin with a beach-ready bronze without clients having to bake under the sun or marinate in a bathtub filled with third-place trophies.
All About You Day Spa truly is all about you. So much is apparent from the spa's menu, on which you'll find any number of treatments designed to soothe skin and relax the senses. Massages, energy-balancing, and body wraps infused with peppermint and seaweed are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg here, thanks to a staff of aestheticians and nail technicians who also specialize in facials, manicures, pedicures, and body waxing.
Each session at Jae Philpott's Salon Eaj begins with an in-depth hair and scalp analysis, wherein she asks clients questions regarding their habits and lifestyle that could affect the hair; all of this helps her understand each person's styling needs. Though Jae specializes in weaves, wigs, and extensions, she's a proud multicultural stylist, with extensive background in hair of all types, regardless of texture or thickness. Brazilian blowouts are also one of her many specialties.
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.
Using the tools of her trade––scissors, bowls of dye, and an expert's eye for detail––Amy Smith transforms run-of-the-mill hairdos into stylish works of art. Amy is a master-level stylist who performs her services at Massage for Stress Day Spa. Her clients rely on her for nourishing conditioning treatments, flattering haircuts, and an array of color treatments—including single-process color, full color, and Technicolor.
