Nestled in a wood-shingled house, Lather A Salon provides a relaxing atmosphere for its salon, massage, and nail-care services. The staff sculpts trendy new hairdos, styling them with Aquage products and adding vibrancy with Joico color. Meanwhile, technicians gussy up nails with polish from top-notch brands such as OPI and Essie.
The "C" in Studio C Spa could stand for any number of qualities: clean, comfortable, chic, cutting-edge. But the most apt descriptor might be "custom." Aided by products from Redken and Bioelements, the studio's stylists are known for crafting haircuts that enhance their clients' natural features. Other members of the spa team perform services that range from relaxing massages to facials that address fine lines, wrinkles, and barcodes that won't peel off. The overarching theme is one of complete personalization; no service is performed without an analysis of the client's specific needs.
For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup; pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. And when you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
For the past two decades, hairstylist Pat Blake has worked at a variety of salons across Colorado and Ohio. Though working at those beauty havens sharpened her cutting and styling skills, the master colorist wasn’t yet fully content with her work’s potential. To that end, she now caters to clients' needs from her own business - Fringes - tucked within Sola Salon Studios. There, she gives each client her full attention while helping each one decide on a style. To create her classic and trendy coifs, Pat reaches for Aquage, Kenra, and Goldwell products and blends in face-framing highlights as well as perms. When not focused on hair treatments, she also refreshes faces with makeup applications and performs waxing services to help clean up bushy brows or gently remove cat whiskers that grew in overnight.
Danielle Goulis wears many hats. As the owner of Dani Leigh Hair Boutique, she invests in her clients' experiences from the moment they call to make an appointment until the second they walk out her door. As a stylist, she focuses on modern cuts and wields a host of skills that go beyond her shears to dyeing, highlighting, and up-dos worthy of wedding days. Her salon also gives full attention to skin with waxing services and airbrush tanning that looks so natural, the sun may clam it for its own handiwork.
