Owner Sherry Behzadi helms Charisma Salon & Spa, drawing from more than two decades of experience in the beauty industry. Sherry’s dedication to customer service has garnered notice from her clients, but has also been recognized by newspapers including the Capistrano Dispatch, which awarded it the 2009 Golden Horseshoe prize for Best Salon/Barbershop.
But accolades from the press aren't what drive Sherry and her team. Instead, they focus on providing their clients with styles that complement their natural beauty. To do this, they turn to a stock of more than 20 beauty brands, including Redken, Schwarzkopf, Great Lengths, and Brazilian Blowout, to straighten strands, add length, and highlight locks. The fashion-forward studio also customizes skincare treatments with Dermalogica products, which leave complexions more hydrated than a water bottle hooked up to an IV.
Sometimes a haircut is the bright point of a day. At W Salon Studio, stylists give hair the snip or injections of color in a bright and open space that oozes classy comfort. After a sleek cut and design, clients can step up to the color bar for a single process color or glaze, or go more subtle with highlights or corrective color. Frizzy hair falls straight after a Brazilian blowout, and shorter locks get an instant growth spurt that only the legs can relate to with Hotheads hair extensions. Trusted products from Goldwell, Moroccanoil, and Redken alter hair's texture or finish off looks, letting you walk out of the salon ready to take on the next part of your day.
Conveniently located in Tysons Corner Center Mall, Modern Nail Studio has everything the modern nail needs. Unlike old-fashioned nails, modern nails appreciate a classy atmosphere and mood lighting, details that Modern Nail Studio delivers. Clean lines and a neutral palette paint Modern Nail Studio into the 22nd century, and indulgent, oversized pedicure chairs with headrests give the owners of the modern nail a much needed break from their taxing days working as taxidermists of tax collectors. Translucent curtains fall gently from the ceiling, dispersing the pendant lighting throughout the cozy boutique.
Salon Soleil’s futuristic beds envelope clients in a russet glow while maximizing comfort and safety. Entry-level bronze-lovers can unwind on the acrylic sheets of the low-pressure Solaris 442 as stereo speakers pipe in soothing audio and administer informal hearing tests. The medium-pressure Advantage 400 and high-pressure Matrix Glammy eradicate pallor with deeper, long-lasting tans, and the Super Cyclone stand-up bed employs hue-boosting rays in brisk, eight-minute sessions. For patrons who desire trophy-winning skin sans UV exposure, Salon Soleil’s red-bulb-rejuvenation therapy works to create clearer, tighter, and less wrinkled-looking exteriors without surgery, injections, lasers, or trick mirrors.
Surgical training is what sets Robyn Mannaert apart from other certified permanent-makeup artists. This trained surgical technician brings a steady hand and ongoing advanced training in permanent make-up, in which she simulates brow hairs with ultra-fine strokes and gives eyes a sexy with tapered lines. Robyn’s talents even extend to paramedical services such as areola re-pigmentation, corrective pigment camouflage, and collagen-induction therapy—a treatment that prompts the skin’s natural healing abilities with specially designed needles. Each therapy session improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
The stylists and aestheticians at Salon 105 provide a pressure-free experience, from their friendly demeanors to their zero-pressure shampoo bowls, which feature built-in head rests to keep client necks from aching. They amenably perform facials, waxing, and all manner of hair services. Even the products they choose convey an earthy, worry-free vibe, such as L'Anza's flower-based line of "healing color care" serums, which extend hair color without the aid of a protective museum display case.
