For more than 20 years, the follicle whisperers of Guci Image have reaped healthy bumper crops of strong new hair on the heads of men and women using a variety of nonsurgical hair-restoration solutions and therapies. For a glamorous aesthetic fix, clients can turn to hair extensions from brands such as Great Lengths, which attaches through a cold-fusion method or by persuading follicles to cuddle up to new strands with a big bear hug. Clients who wish to boost their own natural hair can try advanced laser-technology methods including the Anagen AlphaLase LX40 system, which sheds a cascade of red and infrared light across the head to help stop hair loss. The trained technicians specialize in women's hair loss, and the team boasts an encyclopedic knowledge of the various techniques—including Microfusion treatments and CTR hair replacement—available to female patients looking to recover from any level of hair loss.
Dark wooden floors stretch across Suzanne’s Hair and Colour Room, contrasting against the gold mirror frames, stone accents, and navy blue walls. Within this carefully designed space, stylists carefully design new hairstyles for both men and women. With DevaCurl products in hand, the team shapes manes into flattering styles, adds bounce and volume to flat strands, and enhances color with glosses, highlights, and lowlights. The stylists also lengthen short ‘dos with Great Lengths hair extensions, which are made out of real human hair or the hair of a mannequin that was human in a past life. Guests can also visit the salon’s aestheticians for brow shaping, eyelash tinting, or full makeup application.
At Visage Salon & Spa, an Aveda concept salon, stylists accentuate haircuts with glossing and demi colors or Bio Ionic straightening treatments. But hair isn’t all that leaves the salon brightened and shiny—something made clear by the diverse skills amongst the 13-person team. Skin care specialists customize Elemental Nature facials to hydrate and revive complexions, and administer natural alternatives to microdermabrasion and peels using Aveda botanicals that won’t leave behind redness or signs of irritation. On top of that, aromatherapy body polishes and sea salt body wraps render skin soft and radiant, waxing services do away with lingering scruff, and manicures and pedicures pamper fingers tired from constantly typing short stories about protagonists fighting to get their nails done.
At The New Makeover Salon, the stylists aim to make clients look and feel their best, whether they come in with a specific hairstyle in mind or are unsure of how a hummingbird got lodged in their ponytail. In addition to cuts, colors, and updos, the hair gurus help clients unwind from a stressful week with complimentary glasses of wine or coffee. Threading and waxing services rid clients of unwanted hair, and men can also journey to the salon for a professional face shave.
Cocktail glasses clink as stylists Jennifer Turrin and her husband Antoine work. These Thursday salon happy hours represent the jovial vibe that the couple curates in Antoine’s Salon. The hospitality continues when the stylists accompany their men’s, women’s, and children’s hairstyling services with extras including robes, snacks, beverages, and all the oxygen you can breathe, within reason. The stylists also provide styling tips so that clients can maintain their results at home.
Whether they’re brandishing tools to highlight hair or helping clients remove the unwanted kind, the seasoned team members at Hair & Nails 4 U can help anyone achieve the look they seek. A nail technician buffs fingernails during mani-pedis, enhancing clients' relaxation with add-ons such as warm paraffin dips or carefully laid hot stones. When it comes to hair, stylists artfully snip and color or apply hair treatments such as keratin conditioning. Waxing services give clients control over unwanted fuzz and send a clear message to any of the body’s other hair follicles that were considering growth spurts.
No one can doubt the professionalism of the stylists at Lisa Thomas Salon. Many have trained with prominent companies such as 5th Avenue and Redken, and the products they use during their hair-color and straightening services bear equally recognizable brand names—Matrix, Crew, and, again, Redken. But the stylists still know how to have fun. The atmosphere at the salon is so free and lively that it's become a place where people throw children's birthday parties. During these hair-and-makeup bashes, the staffers treat the girls like royalty, right down to providing a crown for the birthday girl to wear and resisting the girls' efforts to impose a tea tax on Americans.
