For the last decade, the staff at Tavernier's Salon & Spa has revitalized appearances and moods with a slew of salon and spa services. Defined by its brightly colored walls and artwork composed of primary yellows and reds, the interior is home to a team of diligent stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists.
Tavernier's hairstylists wield Redken and Matrix products with full-color treatments and strategically placed highlights to add depth to monochromatic hairdos. Nail technicians prettify appendages with Opi polish and soothing, hydrating dips into paraffin wax, and skincare specialists administer facials such as the one-hour basic European facial, which opens up pores like they're interviewees on Oprah so that they release their pent-up dirt and leave with a cathartic sense of cleansing and exfoliation.
Karmel’s Day Spa & Salon pampers and polishes bodies with services that include waxing, skin and body treatments, hairstyling, and massage therapy. The salon’s beauty professionals employ nail-beautifying products from OPI and CND to gussy up ungroomed extremities and exfoliating facial creams from Bioelements to reduce signs of aging. Stylists call forth a symphony of snips and clips as they fashion new coifs for men and women with services that include cuts, coloring, and fumigating unruly beehives. Treatments such as body scrubs and hot-stone massages take place in private rooms replete with plush beds and soothing floral décor. The salon’s online shop boosts at-home beauty regimens with top-brand facial kits, cleansers, and toners.
At Beaute Box, which channels the "feel of a chic Paris apartment" according to the Dayton Daily News, owner Lisa Scott flaunts skills acquired during nearly two decades of salon artistry. The studio began as a mobile beauty service, but has evolved to fill a space crowded with clocks, statuettes of hands, and candlesticks. Brushes cloaked in long-wear Shellac polish glide across nails, and visitors awaiting custom-designed primping parties lounge on low-slung couches. Giggles drift up to the soaring ceilings as youngsters finish pampering treatments and race through the shop, admiring newly colorful digits or attempting to match polish to an imaginary friend's eyes.
Nora's Design Group enlists talented, friendly staffers who wield products from brands such as Aquage, Biolements, and Redken as they groom guests during a collection of salon and spa services. At wood-paneled styling stations, hairstylists snip and color locks as nearby nail techs gussy up hands and feet with OPI polish. Inside the studio's private rooms, therapists ease aches with therapeutic and relaxation massages, while aestheticians give unwanted hairs the boot from brows, bikini, and legs with warm wax and notarized eviction notices.
Girlfriends Beauty Salon owner Anikka isn't content to stay up to date with the latest styles in Dayton. A stylist with more than 15 years of experience, she continuously travels to places like Atlanta, Chicago, and Las Vegas to keep up with the latest industry trends around the country, and ensure her clients look chic, no matter where they're headed. Inside her salon, Annika oversees a team of hairstyling professionals capable of handling everything from relaxers to foil highlights to straw sets. They can also enhance natural locks with weaves crafted from real human hair, which can be attached using the bonded, sew-in, or paperclip methods. To complete new looks, the salon also offers a full range of nail services and boasts a boutique stocked with fashion-forward accessories.
Amy Tobias and Cathy Murray, aestheticians and co-owners of Transforming Techniques Salon and Medical Spa, each bring 17 years of beauty-biz experience to their treatment chairs. They and their team lavish complexions with a wide range of skin services, from antibacterial and oxygen facials to slightly more intensive chemical peels and wrinkle-fighting injections. Stylists tend to men's, women's, and kids' locks, keeping ends fresh and hairdos manageable, and techs groom both natural and artificial nails. Massage therapists knead stress from tense muscles, and depilation experts use wax to whisk unwanted body hair away from faces, legs, and plates of nachos.
