For Salon Dion's stylists, knowledge is power. From following trends around the globe to seeking out new training and techniques, their everlasting quest to expand their skills has resulted in work at New York Fashion Week and the Miss Michigan pageant, as well as various television appearances and photo shoots. But they primarily use their talents on clients seated at the salon’s BlowDry Bar. Here, they check scalp conditions, then address any problems with treatments tailored to each customer. The team's expertise also extends to chic haircuts, current color trends, customized facials, bridal services, and expert waxing designed to provide brows with the exact amount of arch needed to play a supervillain.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Yes, but massage is a beneficial mind, body, and soul experience. It helps improve both mental and physical conditions.
What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?
People tend to have bad posture, poor flexibility, stress, and overworked muscles causing aches and pains. Massage helps to improve all of these important factors in living a healthy, stress-free life.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I am a Michigan State licensed massage therapist. My clients can choose from three different types of massages: Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage. Within these, there are various techniques used to tailor the massage to each client's health needs. Soothing music, a heated table, and a heating pack are also included.
A profusion of flowers frames the entrance to Salon Maison Rouge, hinting that the treatment rooms inside offer refuge from the hectic rituals of urban life. Their hints prove accurate—once inside, guests immediately take note of the wicker chairs, potted plants, and paintings arranged to promote relaxation. The salon’s stylists create music as they snip their shears, shaping new haircuts to complement the aestheticians’ makeovers. Before indulging in a moisturizing four-layer facial, help yourself to a complimentary snack or beverage and get dressed in the spa’s signature uniform: a soft robe and terrycloth top hat.
A person might look completely different walking out of Studio 58 than when they walked in. Treatments for men and women beautify and soothe bodies, nails, hair, and faces, and the salon's emphasis on relaxation means a client who sauntered in on foot might float out on a cloud of sighs. The folks who make these transformations possible do so with a warm brand of friendliness and a meticulous work ethic, diligently wrapping foils, filling nails, detoxifying with body wraps, and massaging with hot stones until clients are calm and confident.
Dena Marie’s Salon & Spa’s hairstylists specialize in formal updos. Augmented by Lox extensions—crafted from 100% human hair—or held in place by hair balms from Bed Head and Matrix, the formal looks prepare patrons for glitzy events from proms to the salon’s second specialty—weddings.
Their team, which also consists of manicurists, regularly attends continuing-education courses to keep their services up-to-date with the latest beauty trends. Fresh out of the workshops, they turn their shears and dyes toward shaping and coloring manes, and drape frazzled locks with shine during keratin smoothing treatments. They also provide spa treatments that include waxing and paraffin dips that remove dry skin from bodies more effectively than attempting to drive them out by playing annoying music over loudspeakers throughout the night.
At each of Tricho Salon and Spa?s four locations, trained stylists stand ready to refresh outdated hairstyles with products by Schwarzkopf, Bumble and bumble, Keratin Complex, and Moroccanoil. Dr. Sonya Friedman, an accomplished author, CNN talk-show host, and radio psychologist, teams up with dermatologist Dr. Scott Friedman to helm the spa side of the business, where clients can find eight types of facials, nine styles of massage, noninvasive micro treatments, and advice for mending a hairdryer?s broken heart. Fingertips and toes in need of some TLC can also be pampered inside this full-service beauty haven, as nail techs doll-up digits with OPI and Essie polishes as well as Shellac, acrylic, and fiberglass tips.
