Within a renovated church, owner Sarah Kendall styles hair with the skills that made her an educator for TIGI, Phyto, and Kydra. A plaster angel reminiscent of the Winged Victory of Samothrace hangs illumined on the salon's golden walls, hovering over spacious styling stations fully equipped with full-length mirrors and cabinets. Private treatment rooms welcome guests with spa treatments that include massages and facials. In the lobby, clients seeking to take home supplies to maintain their hair treatment or facial can browse a cabinet full of designer products by the light of glowing stained-glass windows.
A unique sense of style permeates The Twisted Bohemian, from the stylists all the way to the salon's walls. The decor incorporates an industrial look, with faux street lamps, gunmetal-gray accents, and mirrors that hang from repurposed chainlink fence. It's the perfect setting for the stylists to let their creativity flow. After close consultations, they can color, cut, and style new looks for men and women. Aestheticians, meanwhile, can wax away facial hair or trim nails during mani-pedis.
The seven stylists of Beyond Hair Studio and Spa cut, color, snip, paint, and primp to keep hair and nails looking their snazziest. Patrons might stop by for quick new coats of nail polish or for wildly different new 'dos, but whatever the reason, they're treated to thorough, attentive service.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
Salon Seven is a full-service salon and spa offering up relaxation, custom service, and a staff of stylists and technicians trained in the latest techniques. With a mani-pedi, both proximal and distal nails are delicately shaped, then brush dunked with polish from Essie, OPI, or CND. Massage and reflexology treatments complete the rigorous relaxation process. Salon Seven’s 4,000-square-foot space is decorated in lively colors and has an open, airy feel; after a 90-minute treatment within these relaxing confines, patrons will feel rejuvenated and ready to take on stressful daily tasks, such as hang-gliding over a mountain teeming with sharks.
During the spa mani-pedi, Ofelia’s Salon & Spa’s crack squad of nail technicians sculpt unruly talons and corral wild cuticles in a flurry of precision clips and buffs. A callus softener accosts rough, flaky patches before a file sloughs off extraneous skin cells. Extremities then bathe in a salt scrub before slipping into a moisture mask that sinks into the skin and rinses clean, leaving hands and feet as velvety soft as a throw pillow made from Barry White’s voice. Meanwhile, a skilled aesthetician massages legs and feet from the knee down, untying tendon knots and relaxing tense muscles. A base coat and two layers of the patron’s choice of polish set up nails for colorful struts through the yellow pages.
