Colors & Shapes transforms into a European getaway with nothing more than a few cans of paint and a talented artist. Faux marbled walls in soft gold tones surround the staff, yielding only to a faux painted window with a scene of a rolling countryside. Inside this cozy respite from daily life, professionals cut and color hair, cover fingernails and toenails with vibrant polish, and bronze clients with a trip to the tanning bed. They cap off beautifying treatments with teeth-whitening services.
Donna Miller, owner of Dezines Hair Artistry, has styled hair for nearly three full trips to the DMV, or three decades. That experience has helped hone Donna’s product-curating skills, and today her salon uses Schwarzkopf, Pureology, Aquage, and Kenra products. With these tress elixirs, she and her staff perform color treatments and haircut and styling services. They also offer aesthetic treatments such as permanent-makeup application and facials. Like most carpenters and the strongest of carpenter ants, Donna’s staff also works with nails.
Belle La Vie may be a small salon, but the talent within is limitless. Women, men, and children can stop by for a haircut, which can be upgraded with coloring services, perm treatments, or intricate updos. Nearby, nail techs primp digits with meticulous manicures, acrylics, and nail art. For clients with excess stress, an intuitive therapist dissolves tension with deep-tissue, Swedish, and neuromuscular techniques.
In their upbeat and friendly salon, The Plumage Hair Company, mother-daughter team Ellen and Kiera Cuddy sculpt 'dos for the whole family. Along with a team of stylists, they specialize in colors and formulate their own Plumage chemistry treatments to suit specific needs. For additional indulgence, they also provide clinical-skincare, massage-therapy, and permanent-makeup services.
There’s no need to call the cops for destruction of property—the black-and-gold graffiti on Shear Bliss Hair Studio's walls was put there deliberately. The decor isn’t the only cool thing the stylists create inside this recently opened studio. They also transform ho-hum looks with cuts and dramatic color and maintain hair health by repairing damage with conditioning treatments.
Yelina Graveran, owner of Salon 121, beautifies clients with an array of salon and skincare services. Wielding Redken products, she cuts and styles hair, creating individualized looks with color, highlights, and keratin smoothing treatments. Her skincare services include facial and body waxing, cleansing facials, and exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments.
