Inside this Redken Ambassador salon, a team of beauty pros await to renovate appearances backed by 30 years of industry experience. Prismatic hues from Redken's Chromatics line add light-catching dimension to tresses without ammonia, while those looking for color, length, or volume sans commitment can opt for single strands or straight or wavy wefts from LOX extensions. Special occasion services include elegant updos or makeovers with custom-blended makeup by Motives, and are also available on-location to accommodate busy bridal parties or those still awaiting parole.
Owner and licensed cosmetologist Linda Darling helms a team of licensed professionals who enhance natural beauty and well-being with salon and spa services. Along with services for hair, skin, and muscles, Abstract Salon & Spa hosts classes for clients who wish to give a partner a massage or apply makeup for events other than clown-college graduation.
Tucked inside a Redken salon, Mira’s effervescent coiffeuses and recently renovated digs create a calming and homey environment to pamper and revamp noodle nests. Patrons are greeted with a complimentary glass of wine, mug of coffee, or flask of Barbicide before being whisked away for up to four hours of tress treatment. A free consultation gives Angela tête-à-tête time to chat with clients about follicular follies, preferences, and necessities. A custom cut shapes hair to each client's individual visage, and a reconditioning treatment fortifies strands with resilient shine. Visitors can supplement a bespoke trim with attention-grabbing full or partial highlights, or reinvent manes with a full-color treatment or a forehead-mounted spotlight.
Though it's housed inside a red-brick building constructed in 1903, Salon Brandon Jay reflects modern fashion and the art-deco movement within its fuchsia walls. Owners Brandon and Anna Andrus embrace this merger of aesthetics, and line their stations with blocky, geometric chairs and nearly monochrome paintings. They and their staff flit around decorative plants and a glowing fish tank to administer cut and color services, such as layering tresses with foils for highlights, dying hair with Pureology and Logics products, and adding volume to fresh 'dos with blowouts rather than fragile toothpick scaffolding. They also coat nails in vibrant shades of OPI polish, and wax unwanted facial hair from lips, brows, and chins.
From within Brenda Bennett Salon, stylist Mindy Premo imparts style and manageability to manes. She kicks off appointments by determining a cut or hue that works best with clients’ features or skin tone before styling hair into their desired look. Mindy also pulls from three levels of smoothing treatments to instantly reduce frizz, boost shine, and subdue curls across all hair types.
Tucked inside the Forum Building, Avantè Hair & Day Spa’s six-person staff tends to clients with a diverse roster of salon and beauty services. Specialties include hair, feather, and tinsel extensions, color and texture services, and Redken conditioning treatments.
