As owner and operator of LockStar Salon, April Conley spends her days researching the latest trends, motivating her staff, and styling and chatting with her clients––and by her account, it’s the greatest job in the world. Amid candelabras and black paisley wallpaper, April and her styling team can transform strands with an elegant scissor cut, hair-smoothing relaxers, or bold color treatments with one of the salon’s Toni & Guy– or Paul Mitchell–trained stylists. Guests may also dip their feet into the salon’s indulgent spa menu, which offers mani-pedis, restorative facials, and soothing aromatherapy bodywork.
Marilyn Oliveira is licensed as an aesthetician both here and abroad, and for the past 20 years, she has helped to rejuvenate skin and bodies with European-style beauty-boosting treatments. She customizes her signature facials to bring out the best in every skin type and regularly employs organic and anti-aging products. Her brushes dust makeup across the cheeks of brides and their wedding parties, and her wax de-fuzzes brows, lips, bodies, and permanently affixed sweaters to leave physiques beach-ready. She also performs manicures, pedicures, and other services inside her private, relaxed quarters within Martin’s Salon at Brick Market Place.
Ciao Bella Salon's savvy stylists treat unruly head fur in their comfortable studio, replete with shiny wood-toned floors and walls colored in warm hues. Clients can iron out frizzy hair with a keratin replenishing treatment, in which tiny keratin irons work to flatten curly hair to a silky smooth texture. Or infuse brown, black, or neon yellow into your golden follicles with a full foil and color treatment. Ciao Bella Salon’s expert staff will listen intently to your description of the ideal haircut while giving confident advice as to how to achieve such a flawless hairdo. And since it’s just a short jaunt from neighborhood eateries and antique shops, Ciao Bella Salon makes for a convenient stop on the way to a romantic date or in the midst of a shopping trip to purchase a Latvian submarine. Customers must call ahead to schedule their appointments.
The stylists at Salon X perform hair, nail, and waxing services using Gelish gel polishes, Redken shampoos and conditioners, and other high-quality products. They also offer Keratin Complex hair-smoothing treatments and Hair Treats hair extensions that affix to strands without heat, glue, or wizard intervention.
The salon itself is filled with lots of natural light, which streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows to illuminate sleek, black styling stations and a waiting area with a coffee station and animal-print chairs.
