When the stylists at Hair Candy Salon & Spa look at a head of hair, they see nothing but stylish possibilities. Depending on the client, they might add dimension with partial highlights, lengthen hair with extensions, or use keratin treatments to tame stubborn frizz and curls. Once they've transformed manes, the beauty experts turn their attention to the rest of the body. They wax unwanted hair and smooth skin with more than a dozen facial treatments, including a therapeutic pumpkin mask with the same nutrients that keep jack-o'-lanterns from ever getting pimples. In addition to these services, the staff uses FDA-approved lasers to prevent and reverse hair loss.
Nail tech Michelle Long makes sure her clients unwind during her spa pedicures as their feet enjoy an exfoliating scrub, mask, and a massage that radiates relaxation through the entire body. Clients in her kid-friendly salon can upgrade their nail service with long-lasting shellac polish, elegant French polish, and a paraffin dip that softens skin and makes handshakes with the Gerald Ford figure at the wax museum less awkward. Long also moves her focus upward for facial waxing, leaving lip, chin, and browlines clean and smooth.
Herbal Concept's compresses and body wraps are filled with a soothing blend of 12 aromatic herbs, including lavender and chamomile, and natural grains that maintain their temperature long after being microwaved or stored in a freezer. Each of their mittens, booties, neck wraps, and back compresses boasts a soft, fleecy exterior in a choice of eight hues, while an eco-friendly line remains the natural shade of their organic marshmallow fibers.
Urban Colorz Salon's team of stylists brings out the best in every type of hair, whipping up face-flattering looks for both men and women in a welcoming studio. Your mane’s day at the spa begins as an experienced snipper clips tresses into shape, emphasizing beloved facial features and deemphasizing less beloved features, such as beauty marks bearing an uncanny resemblance to Alexander Hamilton.
Embroidered sombreros. Vintage car parts and license plates. Framed photos and old electric beer signs. The cerulean walls at the locally owned Anvil Barber Shop brim with bric-a-brac that seems to tell stories from days when the shop’s strait-razor shaves and comfortable barber chairs were the norm. The staff errs on the side of traditional attention to detail at those retro seats. They administer precise haircuts and classic hot-towel shaves while their of-age guests sip at complimentary beer and whiskey.
Not satisfied with just serving up classic salon offerings, the multitalented staffers of Salon DeMara also use their experience to erase embarrassing tattoos and straighten locks using safe, effective treatments. Technicians remove unwanted ink souvenirs with the cutting edge EliminInk tattoo removal system, which traces an iron-binding agent over designs to lift out colors. When not removing tats, stylists can pick up their scissors, waxing wands, and coloring brushes. Classic salon treatments help patrons revamp manes or straighten their hair with zero-formaldehyde keratin treatments instead of tying strands to an anchor.
