Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
Dave Maldonado, the owner of Equinox Hair and Nails Salon, may as well have shampoo running through his veins. His mother, aunts, cousins, and uncle are all in the styling industry, and so?on top of his own training and his unmatched eye for fashion?he possesses a deep connection to hair design.?
Dave and his staff of educated stylists and colorists have been welcoming clients to Equinox for a decade, and they won't be stopping any time soon. Their services are just too popular, whether they're doling out cuts, color treatments, or relaxing manicures and pedicures. The space itself mirrors the stylists' aesthetic; it's a funky salon with loft-like ceilings, weathered yellow walls, and attractive hardwood floors.
The barbers at Catanza's Barber Shop tame head tresses with cuts, colors, and shaves in an old-fashioned barbershop atmosphere; their follicular services and nostalgic décor won them 2nd place in the Best Barber category of Fox-8 Cleveland's Hot List in 2008. Undergo meticulous scissor snips for a dudely 'do (a $16 value), then evict unruly stubble with a refreshing shave (a $20 value). The shop's walls are adorned with pictures of famed Ohio athletes striking their best collector-card poses, and the shelves are lined with bobbleheads that are too risky to buzzcut. A waiting-area television provides customers with entertainment and style ideas from their favorite cartoons.

Rometrics Salon & Spa's beauty experts strike a balance between modern and time-tested skin and hair remedies. The aestheticians employ high-tech LED light therapy to combat signs of aging. They train two frequencies of the light emitting diodes on faces in order to promote collagen production, repair damaged cells, and kill acne bacteria, all without any downtime. Other cutting-edge services include microdermabrasion and body-contouring treatments.
But the aestheticians also nourish skin with all-natural, plant-based Aveda products, and the stylists use the botanical line to strengthen and hydrate hair during styling services. To complete makeovers, the staffers shade skin with spray tans, wax off unwanted hair, apply no-chip Gelish polish, and use perms to create the kind of springy curls that clients can clip off to use as a slinky whenever a toddler threatens them.
