Twenty-five years ago, a small group of women envisioned a client-centric salon where no two haircuts were alike. Ambiance Salon is the product of that vision, a place where stylists assess each client’s hair type and craft a look that meets their needs and goals.
Through sleek cuts, cutting-edge coloring, and keratin smoothing treatments, these stylists are able to breathe new life into hair. The staff also pampers with mani-pedis, eyebrow shaping, and airbrush tanning.
Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
Whether clients seek hair extensions, mani-pedis, or waxing, they can turn to the expert staff at Elegant Beauty Salon. In business for five years, the salon has an extensive service list that covers hair, skin, and makeup; they even enhance eyes with dramatic faux mink lashes.
Owner and stylist Jill opened Santa Fe Salon back in 1992. She and her small team of stylists and nail technicians have a true passion for their work and frequently take refresher classes to keep their skills up to date. They specialize in Redken and Goldwell hair color and mani-pedis with bright OPI, Essie, and Misa nail polishes.
The beauty experts at Salon Elegance call upon a decade of experience to craft new looks, along with a toolkit of makeup, henna paste, and Scruples hair products. In addition to cuts, color services, and keratin treatments, staffers specialize in the ancient art of threading, a natural hair-removal method. They create temporary henna tattoos by mixing a base of lemon juice, sugar, and essential oils, the same ingredients used to make aromatherapeutic lemonade. Red curtains frame the windows behind a comfy black leather couch, and rust-colored walls and assorted potted plants give the space a warm, welcoming vibe.
Nelund Minton has been beautifying the community for more than 20 years. Owner Iain Foster, hailing from the Netherlands, took over in 2009 and staffed the salon with stylists from Europe and Manhattan who adhere to advanced techniques and modern trends. After offering guests complimentary coffee, tea, and bagels, they show them to the styling chairs and begin reinventing their clients' looks with haircuts, highlights, and Japanese straightening treatments that can add healthy luster without the hair resorting to braiding itself.
