For Salon Dion's stylists, knowledge is power. From following trends around the globe to seeking out new training and techniques, their everlasting quest to expand their skills has resulted in work at New York Fashion Week and the Miss Michigan pageant, as well as various television appearances and photo shoots. But they primarily use their talents on clients seated at the salon’s BlowDry Bar. Here, they check scalp conditions, then address any problems with treatments tailored to each customer. The team's expertise also extends to chic haircuts, current color trends, customized facials, bridal services, and expert waxing designed to provide brows with the exact amount of arch needed to play a supervillain.
The sounds of a waterfall gently splashing against smooth blocks of granite fill visitors' ears and meld with the cacophony of hair snipping, blow-drying, and stylist-proffered wisdom that emanates from styling stations at La Bella Vita Salon. Behind the reception desk, curlicue script above flat-screen televisions announces the salon's name and thus eliminates any confusion patrons may have about where they are. Women, men, children, and ambulatory Chia Pets are all welcome at the elegantly appointed salon, where a comprehensive list of hair and makeup services are offered à la carte or bundled as bridal packages.
The current Chaos Studio Salon was a labor of love. In 2012, Jennifer realized she'd outgrown her current space, but it wasn't until it began leaking from the ceiling that she decided to make the leap—and to do that, she called her Dad. Together, the pair scouted a new location, then brought the Chaos Studio Salon team together to lovingly transform the space. Now, master and senior stylists transform locks with Paul Mitchell tools and color beneath twinkling chandeliers, and walls and doors lined with repurposed barn boards offset the bright colors and dynamic artwork that surround the Bubble, Hydration, and Color Bars. Lash artists highlight eyes with 3D extensions, and at the Tool Bar , guests can pick up a few products for use at home or while hang gliding to a special event.
The chefs at Russo's Gourmet Pizza bake hearty signature pizzas with a full spectrum of fresh, colorful toppings. Each of the 15 signature delicacies features its own blend of sauces and ingredients, and may sit atop a choice of four varieties of pizza crust including sesame seed, butter parmesan, garlic, and Cajun. To prevent regulars from sprouting pepperoni on their chests, Russo's Gourmet Pizza also crafts traditional Italian entrees such as vegetable lasagna and chicken parmesan. Intricate salads feature ingredients such as dried cherries and gorgonzola cheese, and gluten-free pizza and vegetarian options accommodate patrons with special diets. The pie menagerie offers delivery service seven days each week, preventing pizzas from getting lost while rolling to homes on their own.
The staff at Benedetta's Hair Salon & Spa—who are Paul Mitchell professionals and licensed cosmetologists—keep the principles of relaxation and rejuvenation in mind as they administer hairstyling and spa services. Women, men, high-school students, and children can find distinctive cuts appropriate for their style or request identical cuts to add a creepy touch to family-reunion photos. In the tranquil salon, stylists paint full color or highlights onto tresses, weave extensions seamlessly into natural hair, and create silky, smooth locks with texturing treatments. The staff aestheticians further pamper clients with soothing facials, remove hair with expert waxing, or apply makeup for special occasions.
Cut Loose Hair Salon's team of stylists creates looks that flatter various lifestyles and hair types.
