Paraffin in Radnor

Select Local Merchants

With its sleek decor, complimentary beer, and flat-screen TVs filling the background noise with Phillies-game highlights, I’m Sergio nods to the men's clubs of yesteryear as the barbershop’s talented stylists give each client a modern new ’do. Hair services range from a basic shampoo and style or beard trim, helping guys look spiffy in just a few minutes, to the more indulgent The Cut package, which includes a relaxing warm-towel treatment and head massage. Old-fashioned straight-razor shaves showcase masculine cleft chins, and manly manicures soften hands hardened by too many high fives with the Hamburger Helper representative. To keep up appearances between cuts, I'm Sergio also offers free clean-ups. :m]]

In Italian, onde means "waves." Drawing inspiration from the soothing sound of waves on the shore, Onde Spalon's aestheticians strive to imbue their services with a similarly soothing quality. Customized to suit each client's needs, Onde's spa treatments smooth skin with waxing, detoxify it with algae mud wraps, and remove its wrinkles with anti-aging facials. Such services earned the spa three awards in the late aughts from Main Line Today, including two for best facial.

But Onde Spalon's treatments don't just focus on enriching skin. Nail techs pamper fingers with cured gel nails or odorless acrylic nails, as well as buff toes over copper pedicure sinks. Stylists, meanwhile, shape 'dos with precise cuts and texture treatments, including perms and thermal straightenings. Onde's spa and styling units even collaborate on pre-wedding packages, which ready brides with fancy updos, biweekly manicures, and makeup that repels any cake smushed into their face.

Nu Waves Salon & Day Spa knows that hair needs protein just as much as the rest of the body does. That's why stylists there pick from four keratin-protein-based products formulated by Coppola, Brazilian Blowout, Simply Smooth, and plant-based KeraGreen, depending on which they judge to be most effective at strengthening frizzy locks. The protein enriches each strand, leaving hair softer, sleeker, and more manageable for up to five months. These keratin straightening treatments are the head of a parade of hair services that range from full color and highlights to perms to haircuts for men, women, children, and border collies who speak enough English to pass for human. Away from the bustling salon floor stand private treatment rooms, where aestheticians perform facials, microdermabrasion, and hot-stone massages, as well as a French-clay body mask that draws toxins from the skin.

Julius Scissor takes his passion for hair seriously. That's why when it came to finding the right haircare products for his clients, he didn't just settle for the best option available. He instead experimented with formulas, and thus created his own line of signature haircare products that met his high standards. This helps him achieve looks as varied as silky, flowing locks to updos that don't wilt in the sun or rain. He also helps children stay stylish with his policy of free haircuts to kids under the age of 3, or tykes who haven't gotten their training wheel licenses yet.
