The stylists at Desmar Unlimited Beauty Salon welcome clients with all hair types to their wheelchair-accessible, multicultural salon. The staff trims, treats, and colors hair, glitzes up nails with chic polish, and removes unwanted hair with waxing services.
Sunlight spills through Tei Salon's ornate, arched windows to illuminate stations where stylists work to restore each head of hair to a healthier texture and hue using nothing but their shears and keen aesthetic eyes. Well, not exactly nothing. The stylists also rely on a stock of haircare products from Bumble and bumble and L'Oréal Professional Series Expert, all of which are potent enough to nourish, smooth, and give hair the ability to swish over shoulders in cinematic slow motion. The salon, tucked within the Chestnut Village Shoppes, connects to its sister spa, where Tei Salon's Dermalogica-certified aesthetician focuses on curing skin of its every ill, from rejuvenating mature skin to purifying acned complexions to defuzzing bodies during specialized facials and a full complement of waxing services.
Below overhead lights, which cast a buttery glow on Level 2 Hair Designs’ polished wood floors and white walls, skilled stylists chisel elegant layers and highlight strands with Redken and Goldwell products. Clients may also solicit the salon for a restorative facial or nix unwanted hair with a swift wax or electrolysis treatment.
Tamed Hair Salon has its name for a reason. Sure, the stylists—like in any salon—cut, style, and “tame” hair, but they’re also armed with something extra: their very own signature smoothing treatment. Packed with natural proteins, this curl- and frizz-taming serum effectively seals the hair’s cuticles, locking in smoothness and shine and blocking frizz for up to five months. Of course, Tamed’s hairstylists aren’t just about banishing frizz. Within an expanse of sea-foam-green walls anchored by wooden floors, they also cut and style strands using K.Style products, and enhance color with highlights, lowlights, and grey blending with help from Lakmé color solutions.
Meanwhile, in private spa rooms, aestheticians wielding Rica wax made from vegetable oils and real beeswax remove unwanted hair from the faces and bodies of both men and women. Guys can prepare for a day at the beach or a night at an underground swim meet with anything from a chest or stomach wax to a “manzillian.” Aside from waxing, the skin specialists also exfoliate and cleanse pores during customized facials and full-body salt scrubs. The entire Tamed Hair Salon–crew—both stylists and aestheticians alike—also gathers guests for birthday and bachelorette parties, during which they pamper and beautify partiers with hairstyles and full makeup applications.
Framed drawings of flowers line the walls above cushy pedicure chairs as sunlight streams in through the floor to ceiling windows, bouncing off verdant plants perched throughout the establishment. This idyllic scene belongs to Polished Nail Bar and Hair Salon, and it takes the appearances of its customers as seriously as it takes the looks of its interior. A wealth of nail and salon services accentuate clients' beauty in the form of acrylic manicures, highlights, and special occasion updos sturdy enough to harbor goldfish bowls.
