As a licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist, Shelly at A Nu Touch works to make her clients both look and feel their best. Her designer haircuts can transform looks—especially when coupled with one of her signature double-process color treatments, virgin relaxers, or full sew-in extension applications. When not reviving hairstyles, Shelly applies her palms to tense necks and backs, alleviating stress with calming kneads or helping give bodies a boost of energy during invigorating massages.
Cleveland Running Shoes's selection of footwear includes brands such as Adidas and Puma, which power runners during jogs, sprints, and races. Nourishing PowerBar and Clif Bar products also assist in propelling bodies through exercise regimens along with water-bottle belts and running apparel. In addition, the store’s staff teaches yoga for runners, so that students may someday learn to levitate and leave running behind entirely.
Licensed cosmetologist Lauren Payten works wonders with natural hair at Naturally Me, where she specializes in flat twists, locks, sew-ins, and silk presses. However, she also helps clients treat chemically treated hair. They can come to have strands relaxed and eyebrows waxed or receive single-, double-, or triple-process color.
Every night, the smooth hum of jazz music drifts out from North Park Grille, providing a soothing soundtrack for guests who recline beneath the stars on its front patio. Inside, dim candles illuminate tabletops surrounded by colorful paintings and soft purple walls. As bartenders pour fine wines into delicate stemware, servers gracefully deliver plates of Chef Anna Hoffman's contemporary comfort fare. She puts an upscale twist on classic American dishes, fashioning meatloaf from lean ground beef and savory spices, infusing mac ‘n’ cheese with unexpected morsels of feta or buffalo chicken, and molding ground-beef burger patties into the shape of elegant bald eagles.
While the decor at Swerve Grille hints at contemporary drama with deep red walls and black seating, the menu adds comfort. Chefs use fresh, natural ingredients from local farms to create dishes that remind you of home, with the added bonus of not washing dishes after. Fish tacos, beef sliders, and barbecue turkey ribs start off meals with a dash of casualness. Fine dining entrees offer choices from chicken alfredo and 12-ounce rib eye to southern fried chicken and grilled salmon, all of which can be enjoyed with sides like green beans or potato veggie hash. Meals finish on a sweet note, with apple crisp, cheesecake, or a second helping of steak.
