As owner and operator of LockStar Salon, April Conley spends her days researching the latest trends, motivating her staff, and styling and chatting with her clients––and by her account, it’s the greatest job in the world. Amid candelabras and black paisley wallpaper, April and her styling team can transform strands with an elegant scissor cut, hair-smoothing relaxers, or bold color treatments with one of the salon’s Toni & Guy– or Paul Mitchell–trained stylists. Guests may also dip their feet into the salon’s indulgent spa menu, which offers mani-pedis, restorative facials, and soothing aromatherapy bodywork.
Over the years, stylist Jaymie Hazard has honed her craft in Paris, New York, and Boston, styling hair for photo shoots and fashion shows. She and the staff at Indigo Hair Studio and Day Spa bring the same level of professionalism to clients, where they provide haircuts, hair color, keratin treatments, and hair extensions, as well as makeup applications, mani-pedis, and waxing services.
From the outside it looks like a single-family home, complete with a brick chimney jutting from the roof and a garage in back. But since 1979, the only occupants of the house have been the barbers, stylists, and aestheticians of Shear Dimensions. The staff is populated by such veterans as Pat Petronio, a barber who's been cutting hair for more than 40 years. Elsewhere on staff you'll find licensed massage therapist Donna Celona, who is well-versed not only in massage techniques, but in linguistics as well; the Brazilian native speaks five languages fluently, and can perform four distinct types of massages.
Salon Valente offers a variety of beautifying spa services. Stylists pay particular attention to personality and face shape while skillfully snip hair into cuts for women, men, and children. They add bursts of color with full or partial foils and also offer corrective color and root retouches. Other services available at the salon include hair extensions, manicures, pedicures, and waxing.
The team at Salon Beautopia believes that everyone deserves to look and feel beautiful. The aesthetician, Bethany, performs body waxing and skin treatments and applies makeup and Lavish Lashes?long, silky extensions that add drama to eyes and extra shade to noses on sunny days. The selection of beautifying services also includes hair styling, from Brazilian blowouts to formal updos.
