First Impressions Salon.Spa's team of aestheticians cares for all skin and hair types with services backed by name-brand products, including eco-friendly line Pevonia. During facials, the brand's cruelty-free creams and masks infuse faces with natural ingredients, helping to correct skin suffering from acne or dullness and leaving it as silky smooth as an R&B crooner on a zamboni joyride. Massage therapists soothe tension with kneading styles that incorporate aromatherapy or hot stones, and hairstylists soothe strands with styling tonics from Redken and Sexy Hair. The salon services incorporate everything from simple bang trims and partial foils to Brazilian blowouts that swathe frizzy tresses in a protective layer of protein to calm frizz and keep hair from snacking between meals.
Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
There are a few things you won't see at Ellison St. Blowdry Bar and Lash Lounge. Noticeably missing are the scissors and bottled dyes that fill workstations in other salons. That's because rather than drastically changing the cut or color of hair, this salon's stylists beautify hairstyles by gently washing, blow-drying, and styling tresses as patrons sip complimentary glasses of wine. They also smooth hair texture with blowouts and keratin treatments and amplify eyelashes with NovaLash extensions, subtly enhancing natural beauty.
Krystal Dees of Lashes & Locks wields her styling expertise over curly and straight hair, and every texture in between. She sets to work in a salon and spa that, in addition to offering hair treatments, also provides clients with skin care services such as facials, body wraps, and tanning. To cap off new looks, the team applies mink and synthetic extensions to eyelashes, drawing attention to faces and away from vestigial tails.
Guillermo Garcia and the rest of the stylists at La Salon push the envelope when it comes to styling hair. They cut blunt bangs and asymmetrical styles; they add highlights in bold reds, blues, and pinks; and they accent hair with peek-a-boo locks of purple or horizontal stripes of color to resemble the American flag. In addition to their edgier offerings, the stylists shape classic bobs and layers, and they send frizz running with Brazilian blowouts.
