Fashion trends are always evolving. That's why the dedicated stylists of The Parlor Salon undergo extensive additional training with top design houses such as Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon, and Wella to keep their skills sharp and their repertoire diverse enough to meet the styling needs of any client. The salon harnesses Bumble and bumble products to keep hair smooth when styling it into a new ‘do or to recall fond styling-chair memories during complimentary bang trims between appointments. Many of the stylists bear training in cutting-edge treatments, such as Liscio Japanese retexturing and Platinum Seamless hair extensions, which use high-quality Remy cuticle hair to create faultless extensions that are undetectable to the eye, the touch, and the carnival's "Hair must be this long to ride" signs. Whether clients come in for a quick wax or a full day of styling, coloring, and makeup services, they're free to savor a bevy of complimentary refreshments.
For the last 7 years, Shelby has been using scissors and dyes to create eye-popping hairstyles for her many loyal clients. She currently owns and operates Stylist 916 inside of Sola Studios, where she continues to magnify clients’ beauty with services that range from haircuts and highlights to airbrush tanning and makeup application. As a one-woman-show, Shelby enjoys the perks of working in a private studio and giving her undivided attention to one client at a time. Her guests can relax without being bothered by noisy chatter, crying babies, or a chorus of blow dryers. They can also bring music to play in the studio, watch their choice of programming on the flat screen TV, or recite excerpts from their diary knowing that only one other person can hear.
Private studio suites come together to create Studio 55’s expansive, contemporary salon setting, allowing independent beautifiers, such as hairstylists, manicurists, massage therapists, and aestheticians, to pamper their clients within their own intimate space. As clients enter the studio, a receptionist greets them and points them toward the waiting area's complimentary coffee lounge, outfitted with an HDTV, refreshment bar, and WiFi. Skylights flood the studio’s common areas as clients saunter back to their beautifier's private nook. Each suite welcomes guests with 10-foot ceilings, french doors, and side windows, which provide ample natural light and a pristine view of geese drag racing in the parking lot.
While teaching at the Paul Mitchell Partner School, Breanna Stahl treasured the moments when she could see her students defining their personal aesthetic edge. She wanted to foster a similar environment of growth at her own business and opened Abeille Salon as a venue for adroit stylists to showcase their art. There, chandeliers illuminate cream walls and the lavender mirrors that reflect a bevy of cut and color services. As members of a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, the staff shapes new 'dos with Paul Mitchell hair products instead of cumbersome bobby-pin scaffolding.
The year was 1999, and master barber Joe Grondin was nostalgic for a bygone institution. The barbershops of old were more than a place for a man to get his hair cut: they were a place to relax, share a conversation, and sneak a bite of the peppermint-flavored pole out front. But men's grooming establishments seemed to be a thing of the past—until Grondin founded his first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. The new-old trend caught on, and today, the throwback barbershops can be found coast-to-coast. Men can stop by for timeless services, from haircuts to full shaves to golf advice.
