The stylists at Fantastic Sams keep things simple?but that doesn't mean plain. These mane-makers fill a head of hair's everyday needs with services such as haircuts for everyone, styles, facial waxing, and lash extensions. They also go beyond basic services with conditioning treatments, foil highlights, and texture services more effective than simply slipping some gin into the shampoo. All services are complemented with their trademark Fantastic shampoo therapy, a treatment which includes a three-minute scalp massage and conditioning rinse.
The seasoned staff at Lotus Salon stays continuously informed on current trends, working to outfit clients with sleek hairdos and artfully sculpted nails. During complimentary consultations, stylists take time to listen to each patron's haircare desires and dream-journal recitations, then devise personalized designs to fit varying facial shapes and skin tones. Staffers are thoroughly trained in the chemistry and intricacies of hair-color treatments, and they enlist top-quality products from brands such as Scruples and Amika to bolster the comprehensive slate of services.
In addition to mane maintenance, Lotus Salon's aestheticians refurbish busted nails during thorough manicures and pedicures, and they bronze bodies with airbrush tanning. All services are designed to enlighten clients on the tools, skills, and Cartesian philosophies necessary to re-create looks at home. Mirrors embedded into dark wooden frames complement Lotus Salon's earth-tone palette, and cushy leather chairs wait to cradle guests.
The sleek black salon chairs at Anna Katherine Salon & Spa have cushioned many clients—mothers looking for a flattering new hair color, brides seeking an elegant up-do for their wedding, and youngsters in need of a new haircut for their first day of kindergarten. Their wishes and requirements are attended to by the salon's staff of seasoned stylists, who perform a sweeping array of hair care services using top products like Pureology and Redken. The salon staff also includes waxing specialists and expert nail technicians, who administer manicures and pedicures using durable OPI Gelcolor polishes.
At Art & Soul Tattoo and Gallery, artists decorate more than bodies. They also adorn the walls. In addition to its staff of talented tattoo, piercing, and permanent-makeup artists, the business also welcomes local painters and sculptors to showcase their work in the gallery. So on their way to commission some fresh ink, customers can peruse and purchase a slightly less permanent form of art.
Globally Preferred Academy trains cadres of young cosmeticians to enhance brows, eyes, and lips with permanent pigmentation. Their licensed technicians first consult with clients hoping for claret-red lips and dramatic winks, then deftly embellish faces during appointments that last 1.5–2 hours. Globally Preferred Academy’s staff also combats wrinkles and blemishes with dermal rolling and skin needling, both treatments that aim to promote collagen production, and their synthetic extensions elongate lashes in a variety of colors.
