The official day spa and salon of the 2011 American Music Awards, J. Nicole's Day Spa and Salon calls upon its stylists' hair expertise and its technicians' skin savvy to pamper clients within a rock 'n' roll–themed lounge. The staffers, who can sometimes be seen jamming on the guitars that adorn the salon's scarlet walls, beautify heads with hair services and eyelash extensions or relax bodies with treatments such as massages and craniosacral therapy. Aestheticians also exfoliate faces with Obagi chemical peels and abrasive punk-rock drum solos.
Rumor has it that Amanda Baughman has barbicide running through her veins––she's that good. In a flurry of precise scissor snips she can craft a classic wave, modern layers, or bold pixie cut to flatter the features. While awaiting color highlights to set, clients may also make use of the salon's other indulgent services such as nailcare, waxing, and facial treatments.
Inside Beaux Cheveux by Jennifer, Jennifer Ward provides cuts and colors and educates her clients so they can maintain their looks at home. She begins each cut with a one-on-one consultation to learn what her client wants in a do. Then, using her 10 years of experience, including extensive training in French-style haircutting, she sets to work crafting a beautiful and easy-to-maintain coif. In addition to cuts, Jennifer is a master colorist and offers all-over color, color retouching, and a variety of different highlights. For clients looking to add length or volume to their locks, Jennifer offers Cinderella Hair extensions.
Warm, earthy tones enhance the welcoming atmosphere at Allure Grand Salon, where hairstylists, nail techs, and a massage therapist pamper a diverse clientele. The team of eight stylists offers a wide range of services, including precision and razor cuts, vibrant highlights and multidimensional color, and sew-in weaves. For clients looking to change the texture of their hair, stylists provide smoothing keratin treatments and relaxers, as well as curl-creating perms. The team also offers twist outs, roller sets, and hot-oil treatments for natural hair. Allure's duo of nail techs treat hands and feet with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and gel manicures complete with nail art. To round out the pampering, the salon's massage therapist calms clients with soothing aromatherapy scents and deep-tissue pressure.
Modern lights hang from the salon's ceiling like glowing yellow roses as skilled staff members adorn nails with high-end polishes by brands such as OPI and CND Shellac. N2 also offers nail services reflective of the season, such as pumpkin-spice mani-pedis for the fall.
