The stylists at Hair A Juku Hair Salon understand that every client has different needs?and sometimes they don't even know what those needs are. That's why the stylists make their consultations complimentary, to help the heads beneath the hair determine which look suits their aesthetic preferences, lifestyle, and desire to not resemble Don King.
Once they've decided on a look, all clients have to do is relax in a boxy black chair and let their eyes wander over the salon's colorful portraits of musical legends as the stylists go about their work. Paul Mitchell products?including strengthening Awapuhi Keratriplex balms?help in nearly every service, whether it's an updo or a trip to the color bar for some low-ammonia, beeswax-based salves. With their versatility and dedication to the client, it's hardly a wonder that City Voter named Hair A Juku Hair Salon in its Top 5 for Best Haircut in 2012.
Glimmering chandeliers, ornamental frames, and bureaus of handsome dark wood surround the styling chairs at Shirley's Vintage Hair Salon, but many clients find it hard to take their eyes off the mirrors in front of them. One can hardly blame them—it’s hard to appreciate your surroundings when you’re in the midst of your own stylistic transformation. Dramatic makeovers are part of the daily routine at Shirley’s, where skilled stylists craft flattering cuts and adorn hair with glamorous flourishes such as tinsel, feathers, and braided dollar bills.
A Chemical Romance Salon's name is a reference to stylist Lauren Simpson's obsession with hair color. Whether it's highlights, all-over color, or a splash of a surprising shade, she loves to take ?dos in bold new directions. Of course, she also administers hair services ranging from expert cuts to voluminous extensions. Her Brazilian blowouts leave hair sleek and frizz-free, whereas updos gather locks into flattering arrangements for special events.
Behind a sleek mahogany desk, a smiling receptionist greets visitors to Trendsetter Salon before they sink into leather chairs to await hair or nail appointments. In the hands of stylist, shears and scissors move in a metallic flurry and blow dryers purr during smoothing treatments. Beyond geometric art mounted on the clean white walls, nail techs perform mani-pedis at cozy stations and cosmeticians deftly apply make-up to accentuate features or make your clown face seem appropriate for discussing fire safety.
The talented team at Glam Beauty Boutique takes a multipronged approach to beautifying outer appearances. While relaxing at salon stations, visitors can watch clippings fall to the floor as stylists remodel their hairdos with masterful cuts.
