The professional stylists at Captiva Salon Paul Mitchell beautify men and women with cuts, color, and other haircare services. At the lather lounge, a ceiling-to-floor water wall pairs with relaxing music for a soothing experience as stylists perform cleansing scalp massages. Haircuts end with a finishing style and recommendations for at-home care that are more practical than sleeping standing up for a week to avoid bedhead. The salon's color bar showcases a veritable library of tress hues, and the rest of the interior sparkles with egg-like hanging lights, wooden styling stations, and mocha-colored molded ceilings.
Sharon Lynn has loved makeup since she was a toddler. She remembers climbing onto her mother’s vanity dresser to play with all her makeup products and attempting to brush off the peach fuzz with her father’s shaving cream. At the age of 15, she earned her first professional makeup gig and today, as an adult, is a licensed cosmetologist, professional makeup artist, and eyelash extensionist. Stationed at a kiosk in the Connecticut Post Mall, she loves meeting women of all ages and ethnicities while using her skills to help others look and feel beautiful. Sharon specializes in five-minute makeovers and eyelash extensions, and she offers makeup lessons to dispense cosmetics intelligence like your own private town crier.
Owner and stylist Frank Sisbarro brings 25 years of experience to the helm of Flip Salon and Boutique, where highly trained cosmetologists wield Redken products while clipping and coloring manes to meet each client's personal specifications and style. Smoothing keratin treatments, coloring services, and hair-tinsel extensions transform ho-hum hair into dynamic ’dos, as women, men, and children lounge amid the salon’s square mirrors and framed black-and-white prints. The staff artistically applies Mehron makeup to soon-to-be-rosy cheeks and lids, and custom Jon Renau wigs frame faces or attach to teddy bears for more realistic tea parties.
