Under the direction of owner and stylist Erica Duke, the staff at Ericalee's Hair Salon transforms limp strands into face-flattering hairdos. With experience and training gleaned from Paul Mitchell, Keune, and Wella classes, stylists revamp tresses with highlights and full color. Other services include deep-conditioning treatments and color glossing that helps breathe new life into follicles that have lost their tone due to excessive exposure to the sun or glow-in-the-dark scrunchies. The salon?s services extend beyond hair to include shellac manicures and waxing treatments.
The journey from disheveled to dapper begins and ends in each of The Buzz Barber Shop’s styling chairs. During men’s haircuts, the talented barbers even out the sides, take just enough off the top, and shave residual whiskers from the neck area with hot-lather shaving cream. They also mask the appearance of gray with a 10-minute men’s camo color treatment, which is a subtler way of concealing one’s age than forgetting how to walk. Women's haircuts are also available, and children and seniors are always offered a discounted haircut.
Situated in a lakeside mansion dating back to the 1860s, Men's Spa at The Mansion provides a calm and scenic home base for men to enjoy spa and haircare services. While visiting for hot-towel shaves, hairstyling, and manicures, men can enjoy niceties such as a game of pool, sports on flat-screen TVs, or cigar smoking on a deck with a view of nearby Suntaug Lake.
The barber at Shawn's Barber Shop & Shave Spot knows a traditional cut, from a line-up to a men's regular cut. Occupying the space that once belonged to Charlie's Barber Shop for some 75 years, the new barber shop hopes to become a community pillar of its own. Beyond hairstyling, the talented barber offers hot-towel shaves and color services.
The bold and blocky treatment chairs fit right into a open and modernistic design scheme of G2 Salon, where Gentiana and Christopher Watts lead a trained team of stylists in performing haircare, facials, and bodycare treatments. The team performed hair and makeup services for many of the competitors in the 2011 Mrs. Massachusetts pageant, and they utilize Jealous haircare products with botanical extracts along with restorative L'anza products to keep each of their client's locks healthy. They offer specialty facials with pure essential oils, deep-exfoliating natural enzymes, and potent antioxidants to brighten skin while also improving tone and texture.
Skin Deep wields an arsenal of high-tech exterior enhancers to solve an array of aesthetic conundrums. Laser hair reduction quickly eliminates unwanted down from fur-festooned body parts with the help of a Lumenis LightSheer Duet machine. The procedure starts with a thorough cleaning of the relevant area to remove dirt and stubborn body barnacles, after which the laser takes aim at the offending follicles, vaporizing the carbon particles in hair-growing glands while leaving surrounding cells untouched. Because the laser acts selectively, targeting only active hair follicles, there is very little skin irritation and no need for recovery time, unlike hair removal conducted via lawn mower. The treatment is effective for darker skin types that may be ineligible for other types of laser therapy. Optimal efficacy is usually reached after five to seven treatments, though this may vary depending on the density of the hair, skin tone, and each follicle’s emotional readiness to accept early retirement. Customers should shave the target area prior to their appointment.
