A former model with 35 years of experience as a stylist and salon manager, Judy Petrigac knows a thing or two about makeovers. Over the years working with renowned stylists such as Arnold and Robert Zegarelli has helped Judy hone her craft and today she draws upon that experience to lead the team at Hair Images.
Though Judy's specialty is corrective color, the salon's hair services run the gamut from complimentary bang trims to permanent waves and foil highlights. She and her staff use products from brands such as Phyto and Wella to remodel tresses, and construct custom updos for weddings and other special events. Their skincare services, which employ Dermalogica products, are just as customized. Before treatments, aestheticians conduct face-mapping skin analyses to identify problem areas. Their facials then combat breakouts, dull skin, and signs of aging, depending on the client's needs and whether they prefer wearing a paper bag over their head. Clients can receive a full-on makeover by opting for waxing treatments, airbrush tanning sessions, and mani-pedis.
Since opening in 1996 as a barbershop, Solaris Hair Salon has undergone a complete renovation and added women’s salon services, manicures, and spray tanning. Owners with more than 20 years in the beauty industry run the salon, where a team of stylists suits facial features and styling preferences when they render men’s, women’s, and children’s haircuts. They pull from a library of more than 500 hair colors; Chi Ionic’s shades are ammonia-free, and Clairol Professional color has a soy complex that conditions and adds shine to hair.
At the salon's manicure stations, nail technicians coat digits with regular or Shellac polish, and perform specialty manicures such as an anti-aging version with antioxidant-rich grapeseed oil and pomegranate exfoliant. The team also administers spray tanning from Fake Bake, which enriches skin with a paraben-free botanical blend that promises not to turn orange, like the chameleon you’re hiding in the grass.
Elements of Hair Salon approaches hairstyling like an exploration in design. Its stylists try to find the right look for each unique face, perhaps adding texture with a braided updo or injecting pop with bright-teal highlights. Hair mavens can create a beautiful new 'do for any occasion, from a wedding or prom to a casual night out. Waxing and mani-pedi services complete makeovers, removing unwanted hair and painting nails to match an outfit or your dates' brilliant, scarlet eyes.
For the last 20 years, Maxamillion A.J. Wells III has doggedly perfected the techniques of male grooming. His efforts have not gone unnoticed, earning him myriad awards and even a prominent role in the PBS documentary Barbershops: PA Stylin?. At his eponymous barbershop, Maxamillion showcases his mastery of various styles and skills, including the flat top and the hot-lather razor fade. Amid the shop?s eclectic artwork and ornate barber chairs, he also softens skin with facials and buffs shoes to a dazzling shine. When he isn?t practicing his art, Maxamillion teaches it to others via salon consultations or educational sessions on everything from basic haircutting to advanced skills such as controlling clippers with your mind.
The team of stylists at Chroma Hair Gallery utilizes years of beauty-industry experience while performing each haircut, makeover, or other styling service. From customized extensions to expert coloring or Brazilian blowouts, they create stylish new looks for men and women, including bridal hair and makeup. On most days, the owner’s special Chihuahua, Chi Chi, is there to liven up the salon by jumping on laps and telling tales of his best haircuts.
