At M22 Hair Design, stylists guide hairdos through artful rebirths with deft scissor work and products by brands such as Paul Mitchell, Mizani, and L'anza. Paying close attention to each client's personal style, they trim, clip, and tease every strand to fall gracefully as they frame the face and accentuate the features, and colorists take the baton during highlights, lowlighting, balayage, and color-correction services. With the same savvy touch, stylists perform perms and hair extensions and welcome brides, bridal parties, and bowls of unformed wedding-cake batter to help dreams take shape on their special day.
Like Charles Dickens, Igor Vasiljuk spent much of his career in London, styling celebrities and building a resumé. His experience includes being named to the Wella top-stylist team in addition to being on the styling teams for BBC America, Reuters, and Sundance. Now, as owner of one of Citysearch’s Top Rated Salons, he helms a team of stylists whose work has been featured in magazines and on runways. Inside Fulham Salon, the stylists structure hair and remove split ends—unlike a football team, which uses its split ends all the time. Using products from Wella and Sebastian, they infuse hair with moisture, add streaks of color, or change the hue of the whole head. They also draw attention to features with professional makeup application.
A two-woman team handles the hair and massage services at Whole Beauty Salon. The first, hairstylist Tatiana Grekova, cuts, colors, and conditions hairdos with help from Elumen, Goldwell stabilizer serum, and other haircare products. That leaves massage therapist Irina Wertheim to dole out relaxing Swedish massages, therapeutic deep-tissue massages, and cosmetic cupping massages that can help diminish the appearance of cellulite without the hassles of finding a reputable magician on the Internet.
Large front windows flood Louis DuGal Salon with natural light from a bustling corner in Newton, illuminating a spic-and-span studio full of polished wood and full-length mirrors. Here expert stylists create eye-catching arrangements of shape, shade, and texture with a full line of L'Oreal Professionnel products, including Inoa ammonia-free hair color. Staff also manicure nails and wax away unwanted hair.
Stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists make up the staff at Raymar Day Spa & Hair Salon, each tasked with creating a serene and tranquil experience for every client. In the salon, hairstylists call on Moroccanoil products to hydrate dry or damaged strands alongside cut and color services, and they use formaldehyde-free keratin treatments to smooth curls and block frizz for months. Meanwhile, aestheticians and massage therapists tag-team in private spa suites, where they dole out blissful massage, facial, and mani-pedi spa packages. In addition to pampering workaday Janes, Raymar Day Spa & Hair Salon caters to bridal parties with wedding-day packages and makeup applications that make your maid of honor look just like the Scarlett Johansson you never had.
It may be small, but Novo Visual Beauty Salon contains everything customers need to get ready for a night on the town or enjoy a simple afternoon all to themselves. Hair, nail, and waxing experts share the cozy salon space, which is filled with the sound of style-setting blow dryers, frantic scissors, and friendly chatter in both English and Spanish. The salon's specialty is custom cuts and color services for the whole family, but those in search of something extra will find the staff equally adept at perms, relaxers, and keratin treatments—which help to calm frizz and get hair back into its skinny hats.
