What?s your favorite part about your job?
My job is so personal. What other field of work can you go in and touch so many lives in a day? Knowing I can literarily make someone's day better by fixing a not-so-good haircut, or giving them the make over of their lives, is amazing. I believe it's one-hundred percent true that when you look good, you feel good?and when you feel good, you do good.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
My salon is painted in a shade of lavender, which helps clients feel calm. All of our decor is classic yet vintage-inspired, and it includes lovely photos of our bridal clients on their wedding days.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We travel on-location to do a bride's hair and makeup on her wedding day.
Susan Ferri has picked up many styling skills over the course of her 17-year career. She?s adept at applying color and highlights, texturizing hair, and cutting unruly hair into fashionable, complementary styles. Certified in the Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatment, Susan also diminishes frizz with a long-lasting smoothing treatment that leaves strands as soft as a gosling after it?s been fluffed in the dryer. Susan works inside Hair-N-Now alongside a team of talented hair stylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians.
Each station at Alpha Beauty Salon is set up like an antique wood vanity, creating an ambiance of classic pampering that is both welcoming and homey. Clients relax here as the stylists craft professional looks with modern cuts and bold color. They skillfully add ombre effects to the ends of tresses and use highlights to mimic the lighting effects of sunbeams or super strong moonbeams.
Glow Hair Skin and Harmony’s interior evokes an elegant turn-of-the-century hotel with its candles, sumptuous drapes, gilded decorations, and a real bed for massages. The spa encompasses all three stories of a colonial home, where beauty buffs flock for haircuts, specialty facials, massages, and nailcare. Aestheticians certified in Keratin smoothing treatments can coat strands in Matrix products, while skincare services such as waxing might use Glow’s house line of products. Regardless of the service, the spa staff only uses products that exclude artificial colors, allergens, and repurposed hotel samples.
Modern paper lanterns and twinkling string lights cast a honey glow on the salon's grape walls and polished wood floors. Amid these cozy accents, mother and son team Paula and Patrick, along with their staff, sculpt confident layers and revamp bland strands with color highlights. Clients may also solicit the salon for beautification services such as facial waxing, brow tinting, and private yoga.
The stylists at Studio B have garnered attention from Fox Providence and The Knot for their chic, feminine bridal makeovers, and luckily for the rest of their clients, they offer the same meticulous attention to everyone regardless of impending weddings. The studio is helmed by owners Steve and Kristi Beaman, who opened Studio B to offer their clients an experience that exceeded the treatments and products you could find at chain salons. As an owner, Steve flexes his creative muscles and uses his 15 years of experience to provide customized salon services, and Kristi relies on her decade of experience in the beauty biz to curate a boutique of exciting, in-demand products such as Stila cosmetics and Deborah Lippmann nail polish. To complement their cutting-edge services, the duo decorated their salon with jet-black furniture that stands out against the salon’s white walls, as well as mirrors that extend nearly from the hardwood floor to high ceilings adorned with dangling lights, exposed ductwork, and light fixtures made in 2015.
