Ambitions Salon specializes in men's and women's haircuts, color, and Brazilian straightening treatments.

Lauri C. Hagan, a 20-year veteran of the beauty industry, leads a team of stylists who cut, highlight, and perm hair. Her staff helps brides prepare for their big day with updos, soft waves, or hair extensions. Other hair-related services include facial waxing and Brazilian blowouts.
The interior of Robert Ashtin Salon glows with serene hues of sea-foam blue punctuated by the stylists’ mirrors and pieces of art including a grid of ceramic leaves. These aesthetic flourishes symbolize the artful salon work performed by the staff. A pink-and-white damask accent wall can reflect the intricate beauty of clients’ new hair colors, which stylists transform with odorless, ammonia-free Inoa products. With Coppola Keratin Complex products, stylists tame frizzy locks into streams of hair so silky that it won’t blister the hands of Rapunzel’s future suitors the way her coarse locks did.
Inside this multicultural salon, all textures of hair meet their match with one of Rhapsody Beauty Lounge’s stylists. Stylists can usher clients to shampoo stations, where padded leather beds take the place of chairs to allow for a comfortable sudsing. From there, stylists can trim hair into flattering shapes, add warmth with highlights, twist and style natural hair, or create elaborate braids.
Salon Pasca's dedicated staff of professional stylists beautify patrons with a full range of salon services. To eliminate frizz and tame tresses for easy styling, opt for the botanical keratin treatment ($300). With a protein-rich serum and the wave of a magic hot-iron wand, the keratin treatment restructures, relaxes, and reconditions hair fibers. The resulting smooth 'do reduces the need for morning hair-styling, freeing time for other traditional antemeridiem pursuits, such as sausage-link stacking and throwing night rocks at the sun.
Currie Hair Skin & Nails performs its ministrations in ultramodern, elegant spaces as clients settle into plush robes and slippers. Stylists guide patrons into sleek leather chairs to infuse 'dos with face-framing highlights or tame overgrown head ferns with a phalanx of scissors and a blow-dry for good measure. Visages in need of amelioration may opt for the recovery facial, which revitalizes with an arctic-berry-based antioxidant serum that neutralizes free radicals and protects the skin. During an aromatherapy massage, licensed massage therapists soothe away stress from demanding jobs and dishonest parking meters, and mani-pedi specialists deftly shape and polish nails, repair broken nail beds, and curb thrill-seeking hangnails.
