There are no venomous snakes at Medusa, the Salon. Nor are there other dreadful sights such as split ends or unflattering color jobs. The funky and alternative organic salon maintains its order thanks to a talented team of stylists who continuously hone their skills through ongoing education with lines such as Toni&Guy and Aveda. Among Medusa's many services, color treatments stand out—using certified organic, ammonia-free, and PETA-approved color from Organic Color Systems, the staff transforms locks with natural-looking hues and total gray coverage.
From lamps balancing damask-printed lampshades to shiny green Buddha statues, Rococo Hair Studio oozes an eclectic feel. Under an oversized poster of film star Marlene Dietrich, clients relax in retro salon chairs that face mirrors hung from the ceiling by thick cables. Stylists work with each client to achieve their desired style, from a sleek bob to long, tousled waves to an homage to David Bowie?s hair in Labyrinth.
Natural light floods through the salon’s enormous front windows onto avocado-green walls and polished wood floors. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylists renovate strands with sleek scissor cuts, bold highlights, and soothing therapeutic treatments. But above all else, the salon is a blowout bar, offering express blowouts for special occasions as well as keratin and Brazilian treatments to reduce frizz and fortify hair.
For nearly five years, stylist Sydney Gray has been following her passion for creating fresh, flattering hairstyles. The Paul Mitchell School graduate currently sets up shop within Salon De Frisk, where she specializes in adorning locks with vibrant hues and natural-looking extensions.
A Touch of Heaven Salon Massage & Day Spa stocks a large inventory of well-respected pampering products. Nail technicians employ OPI and Gelish polish, and hairstylists primp tresses with smart Solutions, Redken, Sexy Hair, and KMS products. An assemblage of massage therapists and aestheticians performs indulgent work at the spa too, allying to relax and beautify their clients. They execute 10 varieties of massage, from the gentle, simple Swedish to the choreographed complexity of the four-handed massage—performed by two therapists or one octopus also juggling four tennis balls. They combine treatments of the body's inner tissues with herbal or peppermint-scented wraps to rejuvenate the outer layer.
Outside of the private rooms lies the salon proper, where stylists carefully ply their craft on the hair and nails of their patrons. They imbue locks with new color, wax away unwanted hair, and even provide spray tans to maintain a summery glow throughout winter's tenure.
