Since 2003, Greatcuts’ licensed cosmetologists have been fine tuning the hairdos of men, women, and children. They pay strong attention to detail in every service, whether they’re cleaning up men’s hairlines, ousting frizz with keratin smoothing treatments, or giving the Mona Lisa bangs. They also launch manes to new aesthetic heights with coloring treatments, deep conditioners, and perms, and wax away unwanted facial hairs.
The stylists at Shockwave Salon share over 40 years of experience as they deftly tend to heads of hair in an airy studio space painted with bright reds and greens. They apply new looks with skilled hands that snip off excess locks, deep condition, or style dos. Additionally, Saturday nights see the salon filled with live music that enhances an atmosphere already packed with posters that pay homage to rock, punk, and jazz musicians.
Before Deborah Pufahl opened Hidden Beauty Hair Salon in 2004, she had practiced her craft for 16 years. So, the transition was as easy as melting butter with F-16 jet exhaust. Likewise, to make the transition from an old hairstyle to a new one easy for her clients, Deborah and staff offer complimentary tea and coffee during hair appointments. Her clients' transitions vary. They may leave with highlighted hairdos, locks smoothed with La-Brasiliana keratin treatments, or shortened bangs. Beyond haircutting, coloring, and styling, Deborah administers a slate of more than 10 waxing services.
At Belisa Salon, owner and certified Redken haircolorist Isabel Feiteira calls upon skills honed at New York City's Redken Exchange and L.A.'s Sebastian Institute to bring clients the most advanced hair services available. Leading a talented team of stylists—including 25-year industry veteran and hair-texture specialist Glennette Goings—Feiteira's dexterous hands wield shears, razors, and texturizing scissors as she creates cutting-edge looks for men, women, and kids. But its her hair-coloring expertise that really sets the salon apart. Consultations include a hair and scalp analysis—also a Feiteira specialty—as stylists pinpoint a color treatment that won't clash with the client's lifestyle or argyle-loving shopping buddy. Redken Color Fusion treatments create dimensional color courtesy of permanent colorcremes infused with polymers and proteins that condition parched strands, while color-gloss treatments from Shades EQ help rebalance brassy tones and enhance the depth of dyed or natural shades.
Beyond hairstyling, Belisa Salon also offers nail treatments ranging from basic manicures to gel-polish overlays, and waxing services that start at the brows and move steadily southward.
Armed with products from Matrix and Pravana, the stylists at Shear Aura Hair Design transform tresses. They maintain the health of hair with trims and nourishing conditioners and reduce frizz for up to 12 weeks with smoothing treatments. To ready clients for special events, they arrange hair into elegant updos and artfully apply makeup.
Updos, downdos, and perms: the licensed stylists at A Cut Above sculpt all these looks. Employing products from top-selling brands, they also dye hair and add highlights. They also schedule services for wedding parties, and makeover mannequins that fill seats at opening nights of plays that haven’t sold out.
