Pretty pampering pros at Knockouts Haircuts for Men, which is now under new ownership, spruce up scalps and cosset weary bodies in a sports-theme men?s salon that has been featured on the Today show and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch on CNBC. As guests sip ice-cold beers or other beverages and watch a game on flat-screen TVs, stylists sculpt sleek, fashionable looks with the salon?s signature six-step Heavyweight haircut. While the stylists shampoo hair or untie chin-strap beards, aestheticians wax backs and chests or refurbish rugged skin with facials and hand treatments. Stationed in private treatment rooms, the salon?s massage therapists promote further relaxation with modalities designed to melt residual tension from gentlemanly handshaking contests.
Re-imagining hair, skin, and nails is a breeze with help from Soraia and Friends, who use their creativity and their beauty-know how to craft exciting new looks. The salon's most unique treatments are both natural and long-lasting. These include hair extensions, which grace scalps with fairy tale-worth tresses, and permanent makeup, which involves the use of tattoo ink to play up eyes and lips. Some visitors opt for subtle changes?a shimmering mani-pedi, lash extensions, or a layered trim that shows off natural waves. Others have the stylists lop locks into chic bobs, or weave a complicated updo stocked with cartoon birds.
At Louisville Laser, licensed nurses and aestheticians can halt hair's life cycle with the sultry caresses of a Candela laser. But that?s not all the laser center can accomplish with the device?its focused flashes also play a role in photofacials, acne therapy, and cellulite reduction. After a complimentary consultation to clear up clinical goals, certified practitioners carefully calibrate the lasers to individual skin types and shades. Each treatment occurs in a private room, upholding the center?s belief in discretion and the right to hold candlelight vigils for fallen follicles in privacy.
Wild Strawberry Hair and Nail Studio's team of master Eufora Elite?certified stylists beautifies hair, skin, and nails using natural and organic products. Beneath twinkling crystal pendant lamps, stylists massage deep conditioners into scalps and cut, perm, and highlight hair. Conversely, the salon's aestheticians deftly remove unwanted body hair, leaving smooth, clean expanses of skin. The full-featured studio also provides nail and tanning services with coats of gel polish for fingers and toes and custom airbrushing to gild untanned limbs.
Among the rows of Paul Mitchell hair products, Paul Mitchell–trained stylists keep scissors en garde for services such as cuts and texturing. With treatments such as KeraTriplex, they turn obstinate tresses into manageable strands with enhanced shine and silkiness, and customize ’dos to suit each client’s features and personality. The stylists impart haircare tips and styling know-how to ensure clients can re-create their salon looks at home or for a topiary championship.
