Five of the staff members at Headlines Salon & Spa have been pampering clients there for more than a decade—one as long as 23 years. Their dedication to relaxation and aesthetics is evident in their services, which range from specialty facials and peels to soothing hot-stone massages and body wraps. They also customize packages that prep brides-to-be for their big days, protecting nails with no-chip manicures, gathering hair into custom updos, and strategically positioning veils to conceal antennae. Wooden fixtures and a distressed-copper sculpture of the sun make the space as warm and welcoming as the people who work there.
La Coutoure's extensively trained stylists truss tresses into stylish new looks. All colorings, cuts, treatments, and salon services begin with a customized Redken consultation, ensuring follicles understand their role in the minidrama playing out on glossy heads and projected on the sides of several buildings. The savvy snappers snip manes into shape and style them ($25+), or wake up sleepy strands with the PowerDose treatment, which is five minutes of intense hair reconditioning ($20). Pump up hair hue with a single process, all-over color session ($47–$65), streak in sunshine with partial highlights ($45–$65), or remove follicles residing in a non-scalp zip code with an eyebrow and lip wax ($20). The cheerful stylists educate clients on how to achieve salon hair at home, and the busy, modern salon buzzes with the hum of hairdryers and industrious, mousse-producing bees.
Fueled's capable coterie of comb-handlers and scissor-wielders transform bashful bangs and surly split ends into magnificent, manageable manes using products from Pureology, Moroccanoil, Rusk, and Redken, among others. Each appointment starts with a consultation, during which one of these down-to-earth stylists will inquire about your tress tantrums and help assemble a 'do that accommodates rather than exacerbates them. Unburden shoulders and necklines with a trimming ($30-$50) or saturate locks with a bold new hue ($35-$125). Fueled is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
