At Silhouette Organic Beauty Lounge, guests enjoy a completely organic experience. Along with the organic hair and skincare products—many of which are also vegan, gluten-free, or wheat-free—the beauty lounge also provides local, organic teas for guests. The spa even features LED lighting, which is softer on the eyes than fluorescent lighting or interrogations done with the spotlights used to illuminate the space shuttle at night.
While the choice of beauty services can vary widely—from a keratin treatment to lash extensions or a mani-pedi—there's a common purpose in all of them. The staff aims to have guests leave feeling refreshed and beautiful, which is easier to guarantee since there are no harmful chemicals used in the services.
Tucked inside Salon Dvine, Gina Salon focuses on four aspects of clients? hair: design, color, texture, and length. Stylists cut away split ends and create any desired layers or bangs for a range of classic and modern looks. Freshly mixed hair dye coats every lock for a new, all-over, monochromatic hue, or only specific strands to create face-framing highlights. Additionally, stylists paint the bottom half of hair for a faded ombre look, or paint equally spaced squares to create a personal chessboard. Perms and Brazilian Blowout treatments add waves and smooth out curls and frizz, respectively.
The stylists at Gina Salon (located at Salon Melini) have a shared love: showing their clients how great hairstyle can dramatically change their entire look. They do this by snipping hair into a fresh style, adding new texture or length with perms, straightening, and extensions, and improving hair health by coating strands with damage-repairing deep conditioners or spoon-feeding them chicken soup. Each service starts with a free consultation to determine the client's desired outcome and give them peace of mind, so they can sit back, relax, and just enjoy the experience.
The stylists at Thai A Chau Salon perform precision cuts, artistic color services, and professional smoothing treatments that turn tumbleweeds of tresses into soft, silky heads of hair. Their methods include Japanese hair straightening, Brazilian blowouts, and keratin treatments, all of which help tame frizz and add luster to locks. The beauty experts also keep brows arched and upper lips smooth with waxing services, and lashes looking dramatic with eyelash extensions.
RedWoods Salon & Spa’s staff members aren't just concerned with how their clients look after a session with them. They know that making their clients feel welcome, pampered, and relaxed is as important as making them look beautiful. To that end, they perform a range of services from hair coloring and weaves to massages and professional makeup. RedWoods' stock of beauty products keeps clients looking good, even if the butterfly dreaming about their existence is having a nightmare. The salon itself exudes tranquility, with red- and green-accent walls complementing brown earthen hues and floor-to-ceiling windows.
What do you get when a chemistry major with an artistic streak and a restaurant manager team up? You get a salon that creates jaw-droppingly naturalistic hair colors and runs like clockwork. The brains behind the operation are Gary Howse and Manuel Benevich—the founders of Gary Manuel Studio. After joining forces in 1979, the duo quickly started racking up accolades from the likes of Allure, Vogue, Glamour, and Highlights. They’ve also established their own Aveda Institute, where they teach the art of environmentally-friendly hair care and cosmetology to fledgling stylists.
