Though Runway Hair Salon isn't on an actual runway, its expert stylists create designs that could star in fashion shows. That's because they stay up-to-date on trends and use sought-after products including Brazilian Blowout to grant their clients trend-setting looks. They also offer spa services such as waxing and mani-pedis that complement cuts and highlights and pamper clients with packages that include makeup applications.
The salon's mint-green walls are lined with cozy beige leather pedicure chairs and recessed alcoves of fresh-picked daisies. Amid these warm accents, skilled technicians rehab nail shields with symmetric shaping and vibrant polishes in a multitude of colors. Guests can also request sumptuous add-ons such as reflexology with lavender oil or therapeutic hot stones.
Inside an old house converted into Tangles Hair Salon, hairstylists and nail technicians beautify their clients. All nail and pedicure services take place inside a private room. Additionally, the stylists use organic haircare products as part of their commitment to the environment.

Citron is an iconic citrus fruit that's captivated noses since antiquity with its fresh, lively scent. Some of the fruit's aromatic qualities must've imprinted themselves on the technicians and stylists behind Citron, the Wayland Square spa known for its rejuvenating treatments. Here, facials powered by healing botanicals reverse the signs of everything from aging to acne, restoring youthful glow and suppleness along the way. They're joined by a full host of massages, body treatments, and even med-spa services such as laser hair removal. All aesthetic laser treatments are performed using the Cynosure Elite Laser. The Elite laser addresses a combination of cosmetic issues such as hair removal on all skin types, treatment of pigmentation, redness, and wrinkles. Even the smallest details earn technicians' undivided attention; at the nail bar, they grace hands and feet with a blend of lasting color and therapeutic treatments.
At Air Salon & Spa, the stylists are big believers in beauty: both the beauty of chic, polished hair and the beauty of nature. The two aren't at odds, either, thanks to the salon's eco-friendly business practices. For starters, the team tends to tresses with products from Italy's Davines, Alterna Hemp, and Bamboo Organics?brands that eschew harsh chemicals for natural alternatives while still producing rich color and intensive hydration.
In a similar vein, the salon has built all its workstations with reclaimed materials and furnished the space with vintage furniture from local shops. Even if you get a paper printout of the menu, which encompasses services from custom cuts to eyebrow waxes and pedicures, you can rest easy. Air Salon & Spa prints all its paper products on recycled paper with soy-based ink?a strategy as environmentally friendly as the typical bicycle-powered printer.
