Wielding eco-friendly and organic beauty products, stylists at Salon Blue aim to flatter clients' faces in healthy, realistic ways with well-shaped brows and grooming waxes. Facial waxing cleans up unwanted fuzz on the lip or chin ($12) and tidy the hairline ($15) below ears and along the neck in 10–30 minutes. Eyebrow waxes ($14) both trim and shape eye arches until they can subtly convey disdain, elation, or a warning that your date's toupee is on crooked.
Aesthetician Debra L. Andresen built a loyal client base at a locally esteemed day spa before striking out on her own to found DermAllure. Andresen revives faces with skincare services ranging from basic facials to a 24-karat-gold facials, which involve masking the face in particles of precious metal that block free radicals but attract tomb raiders. The aesthetician can also enhance the natural beauty of eyes, eyebrows, and lips with subtle colors from SofTap permanent cosmetics.
Dedicated to providing upscale pampering, High End Hair Salon & Spa's staffers beautify clients with quality products such as Redken hair color and OPI nail polish. The boutique's décor evokes an outdoor park with forest-green walls and potted plants whose tendrils have been expertly curled by stylists practicing perm techniques.
In spite of its name, The Hair Studio 41 offers recuperative services for the entire body. Nail techs and massage therapists join forces with the hairstylists, ensuring that even toenails and lower-back muscles enjoy their visit.
In addition to giving precision haircuts to men, women, and children, the stylists imbue ‘dos with rich Paul Mitchell colors and smooth frizzy or curly locks with keratin treatments. Unwanted hair can also be removed from the face through the use of wax. Nail techs keep extremities looking prim with classic mani-pedis, which include mini arm and leg massages, as well as longer-lasting Shellac manicures, which are recommended for anyone who regularly attempts to clean a shark’s teeth. Tucked into a private corner of the salon, massage therapists ease below-the-skin stress with custom kneading techniques.
It isn’t the nature of Our Salon’s beauty pros to merely chop hair and file nails. Rather, they consider themselves something of artists. Stylists alter hair’s texture with keratin smoothing treatments and pack on eye-catching glimmer with highlights or crystals. Nail techs treat each nail as if it is a tiny canvas. On top of candy-cane prints and glittery polish they top fingers with gel color—a special formula that resists chips for up to two weeks of normal wear or one attempt at petting a piranha.
