At Roy's Straight Edge, a veteran-owned barbershop with a vintage aesthetic, stylists keep men looking well-groomed with skillful haircuts and close shaves. Depending on each patron's preferences, they may trim hair with scissors, shave it into a fade, or clip it into a sophisticated Caesar cut.
The barbershop's stylists take care to eradicate stubble during straight razor shave sessions, but they also work to keep skin smooth and not irritated. That's why they apply rich lather and layer on towels that are infused with soothing aloe, vitamins A, D, and E, and refreshing herbal extracts. In the waiting room, visitors can sip complimentary beverages and watch TV.
It's all about lush lashes for aesthetician Heather Crotwell. At Eyes By Design, she enhances her clients' natural lash lines with extensions that look and feel like natural strands. She is trained and certified by Lavish Lashes to apply extensions.
At Shear Madness, fierce 'dos complement fierce decor, including leopard-print walls and a leopard painting hung above the reception desk. The big cat's sleek and powerful appearance inspires the fashions that stylists create—keratin treatments result in smooth, soft hair, and highlights add flattering dimension and shadows. Products by Paul Mitchell and TIGI help the team as they trim, blow-dry, and color strands, channeling 38 years of styling experience. And like leopards, they keep late hours.
The minimalistic decor at Salon Be enables stylists’ work to remain the star of the show. Classic salon chairs with silver bases reflect off the gray tile floor, and full-length mirrors at each workstation rest against stark white walls. A single vase of flowers at the reception offers a pop of color, as do the many highlights and full-color dye jobs patrons leave wearing. Stylists also shear manes into a plethora of styles, from long wispy layers to pixie cuts.
The stylists of The Grateful Head stay updated in the latest beauty trends by constantly educating themselves. Their training has included classes at Vidal Sassoon and L'Oreal in Paris. Inside the salon, they put their knowledge and experience to work while cutting away split ends and adding dimension with highlights.
