Salon Chic Downtown’s owner, Rose Zagra, draws on 20 years of beauty-industry experience and nine years as a Creative Nail Design master technician to orchestrate a symphony of luxurious beauty treatments. To guarantee personalized service, each treatment, like all good superhero-sidekick relationships, kicks off with a one-on-one question-and-answer session. Salon Chic's nail technicians have all spent at least five years beautifying extremities, and can beautify nails with traditional polish, long-lasting CND Shellac, or artificial tips that lengthen fingers without having to spike the hand cream with fertilizer. The salon’s hair services include texture-altering treatments that range from perms to Brazilian blowouts, and its facials and chemical peels employ products from Bioelements and SkinMedica to rejuvenate skin.
Owners Israel De Leon and Daniel Rodriguez value restoration. That much is clear after a visit to Landmark Salon and Spa, their Paul Mitchell focus salon, where staffers renew appearances inside a historical water power plant. By renovating their clients’ bodies, stylists and skin technicians hope to rebuild their confidence. They also offer massages to ease tense muscles and facials that use Dermalogica products to leave skin clear, exfoliated, and as hydrated as a sponge soaking in a puddle of Gatorade.
Clip's 2000 Hair and Nails is housed in a cheery cottage with rustic hardwood floors, colorful walls, and a soft sofa to lounge on while flipping through glossy fashion magazines. Within this warm and welcoming space, a team of cheerful stylists and nail technicians perform a sweeping array of salon services, from trendy haircuts to glamorous manicures to expert waxing services. The skilled staffers favor quality haircare products from top brands, including replenishing Rusk shampoos and conditioners.
Within the deep-vanilla walls of A New U Salon & Spa, stylist Jennifer Thompson sets up shop with all the necessary tools and brand-name hair potions needed to style, nourish, and transform her clients’ locks. Each of Jennifer’s treatments begins with an in-depth consultation, during which she discusses her subject's desired style, level of upkeep, and bridge-clearance height before picking up her shears or coloring brush. As a Redken-certified colorist, Jennifer refreshes hairstyles through her expertise in face-flattering cuts and subtle yet stylish hue transformations.
In keeping with the industrial-chic aesthetic, the interior at David Troy Salon is composed of an intriguing mixture of hard-and-soft decor. Studio lighting and exposed pipes line the high ceilings and look down on plush-yet-modern black salon chairs, abstractly shaped mirrors, and a bright-red accent wall. In these funky environs, expert stylists call upon Paul Mitchell products and the expertise of mentor David Troy to create upscale and enticing new looks.
Jackie’s Hair is nestled within County Line Salon, an exclusive Redken salon. Here, an experienced stylist practices a consultative approach when styling fashionable looks with a variety of hair services. This service syllabus includes deep-conditioning treatments, which both strengthen and hydrate hair, as well as demonstrate that Pavlov's theories don't hold true for locks. The staff is dedicated to customer service, and the goal of sending clients home content with their tresses takes the highest possible priority.
