The gurus at Colorific Hair Color Salon believe that in order to successfully transform looks, you need a plan. Before any strands shift hues, a director colorist meets with new clients to craft an attack strategy based on their hair type, facial features, and desire to camouflage themselves in a field of wheat. A dedicated technician then custom blends a mix of Schwarzkopf color products, deftly painting and using foils to create the desired look.
Although their products are high quality and their services are indulgent, Colorific’s crew keeps costs low. To do this, they let patrons blow-dry and finish their own look at a self-styling station. But for those seeking a full-service salon day, they also offer precision cuts, styling lessons, and makeup applications using the natural, preservative-free bareMinerals line by Bare Escentuals.
The staffers at Jean Marie Salon believe that the journey toward beauty should be a relaxing one, and that is evident in each of their treatments. They let clients pick an Aveda Essentials aroma before every mani-pedi, which includes a massage enhanced by a custom hydrating lotion. They also welcome clients onto their tables for soothing hot-stone massages and reflexology treatments. A sense of leisure and escape pervades the salon and spa, where even haircuts and coloring treatments include aroma-infused heated towels and scalp, hand, and arm massages to keep clients from repeatedly waving at their own reflection.
Stylist KTP’s passion for hair has only increased over almost a decade in the industry. In that short window of time, she has earned the status of colour educator from TIGI, had her styling work published in magazines, and participated in Fashion’s Night Out. Of course, she funnels most of her time and zeal into KTP Reflection, where she cuts, styles, and colors hair in a way that reflects her clients’ personalities. She’s added teaching to her repertoire as well; the classes she leads cover topics such as salon-style blowouts, evening-makeup applications, and human-makeup applications for former clowns attempting to assimilate.
Aqua De Vida Med Spa specializes in facial peels. Each of the spa's six peels resurfaces skin, though different fruit enzymes and acids yield different results: salicylic acid diminishes oiliness to tone acne-prone skin, and lactic acid loosens dead cells and milk moustaches to exfoliate sensitive skin. Enhancing the results of peels, LED-light therapy, vitamin-rich oxygen infusions, and dermal injections promote a radiant, wrinkle-free complexion.
Earth Mama Esthetics owner and aesthetician Karen Ley understands that the success of a skincare regimen hinges on the quality of the ingredients, which is why she stocks her spa exclusively with Dermalogica skincare products. As a Dermalogica certified skin therapist, Karen and her staff nourish and hydrate faces with three client-customized facials, a custom chemical peel, and microdermabrasion treatments. Robe-clad men and women can also partake in full-body waxing and ear piercing using Studex products.
The interior at this strip-mall spa is likewise changed with warm red and cream hues; four newly built and remodeled treatment rooms filled with high-quality aesthetic machines greets guests with the promise of imminent transformation.
Cherry-red hair dryers whir in the hands of licensed stylists at Shear Magic as they brush through the strands of their male and female clients’ hair. The salon's menu of hair services includes cuts, highlights, and perms, in addition to feather extensions for ducklings that are slow bloomers. Additionally, the stylists consult with their clients before each cut to make sure new styles match clients' personalities and complement their face shape. Inside the salon, shelves of Redken, American Crew, and Paul Mitchell hair products stand in the waiting area ready to accompany customers home, and photos of trendy hairstyles line the walls to inspire new looks.
