When Lori Scharmann founded Hair Proz Salon in 1991, she didn't expect it to become the institution it is today. More than 20 years and a new partner later, the salon's staff comprises many of the original stylists present at its opening, and they draw on those decades of experience when performing each of the salon's varied services. They revamp both men and women's looks with a lineup ranging from facials and manicures to haircuts and full-coloring treatments. To keep their transformation skills current, all stylists undergo continuing education classes and sit down for regular interviews with the most innovative 'dos. They carry products from brands such as Skinceuticals, Moroccanoil, and OPI to help clients maintain their new looks outside the salon.

At Salon Rochae, stylist and Redken-certified master colorist Tammie Kelsay beautifies hair with cutting, styling, coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments. Kelsay's career has led her to rove around the country, training with Bumble and bumble stylists in New York City and trimming the coats of Delaware?s secret colony of woolly mammoths. She adds vibrancy to hair with organic, vegan All-Nutrient colors and employs antimicrobial Nufree products to wax away unwelcome hairs.
Primp Hair Salon's owner, Michele Rae, believes that a good haircut begins not with a blow-dry, spritz bottle, or ritualistic sharpening of the garden shears, but conversation. That's why she stresses the importance of a pre-cut consultation, and has her stylists discuss goals and wishes with their clients in order to gain a clear picture of what they're aiming for.
It was during these conversations that Michele Rae learned that her clientele was interested in extensions. So she not only expanded her repertoire to cater to her clients, but she sought out a new salon space with private rooms for specialized extension treatments. Once she had moved, she developed a proprietary method of hair extensions herself. She trained a group of stylists to implement this process, and today hair extensions are a large part of Primp's offerings?which also includes traditional cut, coloring, and texturizing treatments. For discerning clients, the team uses Remy 100% human hair and individually bonded extensions, installed using a range of methods and products.
One of six stylists at Proxy Salon, Marianne Ostvig helps to create the 'home-away-from-home' experience on which the salon prides itself. As the staff nurtures locks with products from Eurofa and Morrocanoil, they aim to provide a tranquil yet lively salon experience.
Were it not for the constant buzzing of clippers and snipping of shears, one might mistake Tonic Barbers for a cozy pub or after-work hangout. The chic men’s barbershop eschews the red-and-white poles of yore in favor of a full-size pool table and rich wooden walls imported from a tobacco barn in Wisconsin. While cue balls clink in the background, barbers call upon top-shelf products from Jack Black and Bumble and Bumble to imbue scalps with a hip and modern panache. Along with sophisticated cuts and hot towels, the shop’s stylists offer a menu of coloring and waxing services for gents. Highlights and tints add spark to lackluster strands, and occasional mani-pedis groom men’s hands and feet before decorating their nails with football scores. The barbers also crop the disheveled locks of young chaps into stylish ‘dos sure to be the envy of the playground.
