Salon Norman-Dee's beauty services put the aesthetic back in anesthetic by letting you close your eyes and bliss out in a stress-free sanctuary while surgical stylists operate on you from head to toe, skipping only the gall bladder, because it's already sexier than it has any right to be. The salon's seasoned scissors-snippers can manage and mold any mop with a cut and style ($40+), coax manes into an anti-grav updo ($65+), or trim bangs ($10+) back into shape after a long winter of stress-eating. Prices increase for services booked with a senior stylist. Otherwise, skip taming in favor of total termination with waxing services such as an eyebrow shaping ($14) or a Brazilian bikini wax ($50) to prevent samba-related thigh burns. Non-hair-related beauty rescues include nail treatments such as the rejuvenating spa manicure ($24+) or pedicure ($45+).
Ground Zero Center City sculpts frizzy, unwieldy, and technically illegal hairstyles into follicular masterpieces with a plethora of hair-care services. For starters, the salon's talented, accommodating staff of stylists will carefully edit the head-tentacles atop women ($50+) and men ($25+) into styles that reflect their personality. For more advanced tress treatments, a permanent wave ($75+) elegantly curls hair so that it more effectively ensnares delicious birds and the fingers of attractive dates. The Prizms treatment ($25+), meanwhile, can boost the intensity of your hair's natural color—adding shine, toning highlights, and blending away touches of gray—until each filament glows like radioactive honey. A highlight treatment ($80+) colorizes monochrome manes into a Technicolor tour de force. And men just looking for a simple, no-frills de-scraggling can order an extensive, soothing beard trim ($7), opening up face space where they can write helpful reminder notes such as "Buy Post-Its."
AMS Salon's forte is hair; it won a 2008 Philadelphia magazine Best of Philly award for hair color, was nominated for Best Hair Salon 2010 by CityVoters, and was a 2009 InStyle Beauty Blackbook pick for hair color. Let these hair authorities smoothen and straighten your noodle nest with a keratin treatment. Similar to the system used to prepare a Snickers bar for interstellar travel, the treatment coats each shaft of hair in a nutrient-rich layer of protective protein goodness, eliminating frizz and smoothing cuticles. After soaking strands for several days, hair can be rinsed and unfurled into a newly straight state that will last up to four months. Best of all, you'll need less hair product, less blow-drying time, and no straightening to achieve your ideal 'do, leaving you flat-iron free to explore new hobbies such as panini pressing.
Juju Salon and Organics opened in 2005 as Philadelphia's first eco-chic salon. This Queen Village beauty hotspot appeals to customers who want a relaxing, high-end experience that doesn't cause harm to themselves or the planet. A combination of socially conscious practices, experienced stylists and aestheticians, and a casual yet feminine atmosphere ensures that Juju customers leave this long, colorful salon looking and feeling beautiful. Like most beauty spots, Juju offers haircuts, color and styling; nail care; and waxing. The difference? While conventional establishments often utilize materials made with harsh chemicals, the treatments inside this bright, warm salon incorporate products like Zoya nail polish, John Masters Organics hair products and soy wax (for hair removal). These alternatives incorporate all-natural, organic ingredients and are free from toxic materials.
After guests have had a chance to kick back with a drink in the waiting area, Slice Hair Studio's stylists get busy mapping out a custom cranial blueprint. Once they have a plan in mind, these scissor whizzes can do everything from tidy up appearances with a simple trim to add depth and dimension with coloring and texturizing treatments. The primping doesn't have to stop with hair, though— the staffers can also put the final touches on new looks with tanning and waxing services.
In addition to taking care of guests, the stylists do their best to take care of the planet, embracing environmentally friendly business practices whenever possible. This means that they stock the shelves with natural and organic hair-care products, use energy-efficient appliances, and recycle leftover trimmings to make wigs for endangered bald eagles.
