Whether performed by a stylist or a master designer, all haircuts at Etre Hair Spa begin and end the same way. First, the styling team encourages clients to describe their vision—be it through words, a picture clipped from a magazine, or shadow puppets—and their lifestyle, touching on topics such as their job and daily time allotment for styling. This gentle prying allows the stylist to come up with the perfect cut, eventually finishing with a blow-dry and tips for re-creating the polished look at home with Bumble and bumble or Moroccanoil products. Though cuts are Etre Hair Spa’s bread and butter, the stylists and designers take things into gourmet territory with multidimensional highlights and Coppola Keratin Complex treatments, which banish curls and frizz for up to five months.
Whether stopping by for a quick haircut or manicure or devoting a whole day to facials and massages, trained staff members pamper guests of Milagro Spa amid soothing amenities. Visitors don robes and lounge in the relaxation area after their services are complete, basking in the glow that only an expertly administered mud wrap or nearby anglerfish can provide. Thoughtful touches such as onsite childcare ensure youngsters stay safe and happy while adults unwind.
When guests enter Color Bar 51, they?ll invariably hear the buzz of blow-dryers and the snipping of scissors echoing through the shop. At the salon, a team of highly educated stylists bring more than 50 combined years to the cutting floor. Each stylist and colorist is sorted into one of four levels based on their skills and number of years in the industry. In the back, they?d find colorists hand blending ammonia-free glazes and permanent dyes. At individual stations, guests can recline in black chairs while stylists transform their hair with face-framing highlights and keratin smoothing treatments. Guests get a complimentary consultation before any hair services so that the stylist can assess their face shapes and features along with lifestyle habits to determine hairstyles that not only will compliment the guests? physical appearances but also their active daily lives.
At Winks Hair & Lash Studio's new Belmar location, owner Liz Calandra wears multiple hats in the beauty world, including hairstylist, colorist, and certified Lavish Lashes lash-extension specialist. It's no wonder that her staff can also just as seamlessly go from perms to highlights to lash extensions to custom wigs for chemotherapy patients. The team stays on top of the latest trends and techniques with frequent participation in training sessions and seminars.
Women, men, and children are all welcome at Salon 31, where a team of eight stylists brandishes shears, dyes, and conditioners to craft impeccable dos. These beautifiers also apply makeup, and during private instruction they teach clients to wield their own blush brushes and lipstick squeegees. Their talents include various specialties, including precision cutting, keratin smoothing, and coloring that is corrective or hides grays.
