The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissors-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week.
Under a sparkling chandelier, chain-linked metal curtains swish as stylists move through Estetica Hair Studio’s ultra-modern salon. Amid black and chrome décor, generously padded chairs swathe clients in comfort during hair services ranging from standard men's and women's cuts to full highlights and Japanese or Brazilian keratin treatments. They also specialize in styling services for special occasions, coifing elegant updos for weddings or beehives for bear prom.
Though the salon and spa is named after her, owner Kathy doesn't work alone. In fact, the hairstylist—who is also a trained massage therapist specializing in hot-stone and deep-tissue modalities—works alongside two other beauticians. Hairstylist Diane joins Kathy on the salon floor, where she showcases her apt knowledge of keratin treatments as well as constructing special-occasion hairdos. Together the duo reaches for Cures, GK Hair, and Paul Mitchell products as they create both classic and trendy hairstyles. Back in a private spa room, aesthetician Karina deep cleanses pores with custom facials. When Karina is out on the salon floor, she reaches for cosmetics to doll up customers for weddings, date nights, and parties at private clown-only clubs.
Owner Ronnie Keller has made Bridgewater Commons Mall his second home. Early in the morning, he saunters past storefronts, stopping at the threshold of Splash Salon & Spa, flanked by two tall, obelisk-shaped lanterns that serve to welcome both patrons and fashion-forward moths. Past the reception desk, where water cascades down glass panes, Ronnie settles in for the day, overseeing a team of beautification experts as they perform a slate of pampering services. Funky aluminum mirrors reflect hairstylists' newly forged masterpieces as nail technicians soften skin with sea-salt scrubs and paraffin waxes before camouflaging fingers in a choice of polish. Eight styles of massage revive tired bodies, and facials, waxing, and cosmetic services keep visitors looking radiant and magic mirrors from making meaningless small talk. Posttreatment, clients can peruse a stash of Bumble and bumble., Paul Mitchell, and Moroccanoil products that eagerly await adoption.
Jawhara Sawsan grew up watching her mother—an artist, sculptor, and seamstress—successfully channel her creativity into vivid physical expressions. She set about finding the best medium for her own artistic ideas. Soon, she realized that a simple childhood pastime—braiding her dolls' hair under the instruction of her aunt Cynthia—held a deeper appeal. As an adult, she turned her passion for hair into a career, attending cosmetology school and opening her own salon, populated by a loyal clientele bearing a rich palette of diverse ethnicities and hair types.
In 2010, the big leagues called, and Jawhara answered, becoming Lauryn Hill's personal stylist and following the fashion-forward singer on her winter and summer tours the following year. While the former Fugee’s unique and risky style enabled Jawhara to push the limits of her creativity, she’s just as happy doing what she’s always done: beautifying clients with extensions, weaves, and straightening treatments. Even though her life on the road is over for now, she also refuses to tame her artistic nature, sharing cutting-edge looks through her portfolio and interpretive dances about scissors.
