Stacy Powell is a celebrity stylist and owner of Shear Artistry the Salon, where she and her staff grace civilian hairdos with the flair normally reserved for the elite and famous. With a focus on creativity and artistic design, the senior and junior stylists take to their scissors and blow dryers to administer cuts that range from the cutting edge to the classic. They also offer coloring, smoothing treatments, and soft waves and updos that can make any bride ready to don a wedding dress and pose for the cake sculptor.
The licensed nail technician behind By Faith Nail Suite takes an artistic approach to nailcare—she specializes in elaborate acrylic nail designs in all shades of the rainbow. She can also apply long-lasting shellac and OPI gel polishes, which resist chips for 14 days.
At Salon 22, a great hairstyle is like a fine diamond: shiny, precisely cut, and multidimensional. Stylists summon these qualities in a sparkling space lined with earth-toned walls and decorative reeds. Armed with photos of their favorite looks, clients help design ’dos that amplify bright eyes, stunning cheekbones, or fashion-forward angel halos. In the process, stylists may sketch pictures of prospective coifs to gauge clients' reactions. They also teach clients how to hone their hair at home, using products by Aquage, Biomega, and Simply Smooth. Goldwell hues power color services, which range from eyebrow tinting to full-head foils. Texture services such as body waves and keratin treatments can make tresses pin straight or as rippling as an ocean watching a horror movie. In addition to prettifying locks, the styling team can pamper nails with cuticle softeners and glamorous polish.:m]]
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists. Use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry ($25–$30) and lean back and dream of break-dancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head-hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring ($50–$55), highlights ($95–$100), or a perm ($60–$65). Prices vary by location.
The technicians at NeoSole Nail Lounge draw upon their constantly updated training to administer specialty manicures and pedicures that include hot-stone treatments, Minx, and acrylics. Technicians maintain nails' health without abrading skin and refraining from cutting live cuticles away. In the namesake manicure, hands spend half an hour being massaged with the studio's own brown sugar and honey scrub. Nail-tenders apply a long-lasting, brightly hued concoction to fingertips in the Shellac manicure, which takes 30 minutes to produce a glossy finish that can last for up for to two weeks or 70 board-breaking karate chops.
At Anjee Salon and Day Spa, experienced stylists and technicians pamper customers with beautifying and soothing treatments. Stylists snip away excess locks as they create face-framing new dos complete with partial or full highlights, while nail technicians dote upon hands with manicures. The salon is also a provider of Hotheads and Indique hair extensions.
