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.
Ladies, gents, and kids can be found in the swivel chairs at Dimanti Salon's, getting their inaugural haircut, their color touched up, or their split ends snipped away. The stylists here keep their diverse clientele on-trend with a full menu of salon services, in addition to manicures, pedicures, and facials. Following a grand opening in June 2013, the salon staff stays busy painting nails, applying highlights, and conditioning dry locks.
