The talented design and color teams at Melandre Salon tweak tresses using professional treatments informed by the latest styles and trends. During cuts, a skilled scissorist sculpts an impactful silhouette that impresses onlookers and their shadows. For a dramatic coiffure remodeling, partial or full foil highlights add splashes of color to innovative hair shapes. New styles flourish with one of seven customized deep-conditioning treatments, including volumizing, anti-aging, and moisturizing concoctions.
Jacquelene Cutro, owner of Fringe Hair & Nail Salon, sculpts tresses with her trained stylists amid earth-toned decor. Guests can enjoy refreshments while relaxing in a waiting area furnished with leopard-print chairs and stately wooden shelves loaded with products from Bumble and Bumble and Paul Mitchell brands such as Awapuhi, Tea Tree, and Mitch. Exposed bricks provide a counterpoint to beige faux-finished walls dotted with metal wall ornaments and wood-carved mandalas. Light fixtures with stained-glass accents illuminate styling stations and full-length mirrors, which let clients watch as stylists perfect hair styles. Chemical services are available with Tocco Magico, Matrix, and Paul Mitchell products.
In Joanne Carovillano's 20-year hairstyling career, she's only taken a break once: she left the salon she owned for 15 years to work in insurance. Luckily, absence made the heart grow fonder, and she realized that hair was her true passion. She left the office, opened a new salon, and the rest is history. At Park Avenue Haircutters, she leverages her experience with all hair types to bring out the best in her clients. Joanne and her staff reinvent women's looks with cuts, coloring, highlights, and perms. They also gussy up male clients with beard trims and grey blending, and children are welcome to plop down in a styling chair as well for a trim or to turn their hair grey for upcoming adult-disguise hijinks.
Stylist Amy Bloodworth spent a decade honing her craft with Vidal Sassoon, Toni and Guy, and Bumble and bumble before she opened her very own Imana Hair Studio in 2009. She immediately convened a deft team of stylists, who mold manes with products by Prive, Moroccanoil, and Wella at minimalistic stations, each of which features a modern white chair, frameless full-length mirror, and mirrored table. In addition to sculpting 'dos with razors, scissors, and color, the stylists also beautify brides with up-dos, makeup, and tiaras made of borrowed, old, blue glitter.
Awash in the neutral tones of brown walls and gold-flecked sconces, Vincent John Salon lets the hairstyles provide the most flashy decor. The floor-to-ceiling mirrors display everything from bobs and curls to trendy highlights, all crafted by stylists who keep their skills fresh by taking continuing-education courses rather than simply holding blindfolded haircutting contests. Clients can also re-energize their look with powercell repair treatments and facial waxing as they relax in the fun, laid-back environment, which also hosts regular special events such as Ladies' Martini Night.
The stylists and aestheticians at Salon La Bella glitz up clients with comprehensive nail and hair services. Stylists trim locks, encourage healthy hair with shampoo and conditioner, and personalize hairstyles with highlights, foils, and color. Aestheticians beautify bodies with various manicures and pedicures as well as waxing services.
