Like the demon barber of Fleet Street from whence it gets its name, Sweeney Todd Salon takes a dramatic approach to the styling arts. The salon, which pays homage to its namesake with a blood-red wall plastered with framed Broadway programs, is the brainchild of Robert Dixon, a master hair designer with more than 30 years of industry experience. A graduate of the Franklin School of Cosmetology, Robert leads a team of stylists in sculpting manes with products by Scruples, Paul Mitchell, Deva Curl, and Aquage. Meanwhile, an on-staff skin specialist purifies pores and boosts outer radiance with facials, waxing, and makeup services. In front of the salon, floor-to-ceiling windows mingle their light with that of stainless steel pendant lamps, which illuminate a cozy waiting area stocked with magazines, black couches, and blank farewell cards to soon-departed tresses.
Amber facilitates loose muscles and relaxed minds at Massages by Amber. The massage therapist brings stressful and worried thoughts to a standstill with 60- and 90-minute relaxation massages, which simultaneously nurture the muscles and the mind. She also offers deep-tissue treatments, which are targeted massages that aim to relieve soreness, chronic pain, and tension.
Indigo Salon and Spa's troupe of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists rejuvenates and beautifies guests within elegant environs decked in wood, leather, and chiffon to achieve a rich, shabby-chic vibe. Thermal wraps and spa treatments slough off the stress of everyday life or a single day of lion taming, and shelves lined with bath bombs, soaks, and scrubs proffer take-home tranquility.
Sizeable mirrors, framed in white and affixed to light cream walls, reflect tresses mid-transformation as guests lounge in white leather styling seats alongside Paul Mitchell products. Chandeliers illuminate stylists' fingers, and diaphanous draperies separate workstations. In the lobby, waiting clients can nibble treats or sip steamy mugs from the coffee and tea bar as they bask in the glow of a candle-filled fireplace or burn a piece of paper with the name of their old stylist on it.
At Salon Envy, owner Sarah Myers and her team of savvy stylists tailor haircuts and salon treatments to each individual's preference. Stylists perform cuts on both women and men, snipping and sculpting strands of all lengths into fashionable new 'dos and Rapunzel–style utility ladders. Supplementing the women's cut, an all-over color treatment dresses the whole head in a new hue, or highlights speckle specific strands to infuse the mane with punches of color.
