The Paul Mitchell-trained stylists at Ethan Douglas sculpt women’s, men’s, and children’s manes into fashionable coifs. The amiable mop-snippers provide a personalized cut and a thorough blow-dry that fixes newly styled strands into a warm, tangle-free bed for falling acorns. Clients who opt for the Awapuhi deep conditioning treatment will receive the service in a private room where the formula will be applied to the hair, followed up with a blow-dry and style. The gel-based product uses natural keratin protein to smooth flowing follicles, eschewing formaldehyde in favor of an organic aldehyde, which is gentler on most people and most high-school chemistry-lab frogs.

A clinical peel then strips away dry and cantankerous skin cells, permitting skin’s natural bioluminescence to shine through and leaving faces fresher than a shrink-wrapped daisy. Finally, treat guises to a tailored mask befitting their skin type and assuage envious hands and shoulders with a complimentary massage.

Clients can sip homemade herbal tea as soothing music cultivates an atmosphere as tranquil as a zen garden planted on a cloud.
A Salon 7 may be in Reno, but its stylists get their inspiration from faraway runways in New York City and Milan.
