Marc Stevens's army of aestheticians—oft referred to as the Care Team—revivifies clients with a full range of salon and spa services for the nails, skin, and hair. Team members continually expand and refine their talents during monthly workshops in which salon innovations and upcoming fanny-pack trends are revealed. Team members at the spa, which has red-tile floors and intricate black chairs, believe that the art of beauty can be tailored to the needs of each client.
Salon Edge owner Richard O’Connor works each day to achieve his goal as a hairstylist: to boost his clients’ outer beauty and inspire confidence. Richard’s supporting staff includes a hair sculptor, two aestheticians, and a master stylist with 30 years of experience. The team works to bring its customers’ visions to life with precise cuts, fully custom color treatments, and skin-type-specific spa treatments. The two aestheticians can perform a diverse range of services, from waxing, massages, and facials to hoof care and nailcare. And as if all these services in one place weren't convenient enough, Salon Edge has free parking.
Cosmetologist and aesthetician Traci specializes in color, haircuts, and natural hair, making her a triple threat. As a skilled colorist, she infuses hair with highlights and all-over color and performs color-correction services. As a snipping specialist, she shapes strands into trendy cuts. And as a natural-hair expert, she offers all types of sets for natural hair. When she's not cutting, coloring, and styling hair, she's busy performing skin-care services, such as waxing and facials, and specialty services, such as updos, weaves, and feather extensions, which come in handy on fishing trips.
Roe holds a master's degree in business administration and mentors at-risk female teens through her own volunteer program, but for all the breadth and depth of her interests and accomplishments, her primary passion is running 212 Salon. With more than a decade of experience in the industry, she practices a multifaceted approach to beauty, specializing in everything from applying makeup to glitzing up nails to stealthily curling the eyelashes of sleeping camels. A national educator for John Paul Mitchell Systems, she and her staff optimize both men’s and women’s hairdos with an extensive line of Paul Mitchell products.
The only things more modern than Christopher Stevens the Salon's contemporary atmosphere—complete with exposed-brick walls and metallic accents—are the hairstyles exiting through its doors. Inside the chic loft space, stylists take manes of all colors, lengths, and textures and mold them into hip coifs. The staff includes stylists who specialize in cutting, coloring, and styling natural hair, as well as those who excel at applying natural-looking sew-in weaves or strand-smoothing relaxers, which are ideal for those with curly, frizzy, color-treated, or anxious hair.
