Like their business name implies, the trained and licensed beauticians at A Touch of Elegance create more sophisticated looks with their expert treatments and services. In addition to traditional haircuts and manicures, staffers embellish feminine features with everything from make-up to up-dos and hair extensions. Those with Y chromosomes aren't left out; staffers also pamper men with old-fashioned, four-layer barber shaves. After softening the skin and massaging facial muscles, barbers turn back the clock on five-o'clock shadows with straight razors, keeping faces as fresh and youthful as the day they were baked.
In an age of strip malls and robotic cab drivers, you sometimes yearn for the good old days. That's why Palace Barber Shop offers an old-fashioned barbering experience, complete with checkered floors, hot-lather shaves, and even a gumball machine. Though the shop thrives on nostalgia, the experts stylists are fully up to date on current hair trends and specialize in men's and boys' cuts.
The stylists at Hy Gorgeous know that the eyes have it, so they focus exclusively on emphasizing peepers with eyelash extensions. They add fringe lash-by-lash, creating a look that can be subtly fuller or boldly unmistakable. Because the extensions do not wash off like mascara, lashes continue to look great after sleeping, exercising, or manning a dunk tank.
La Salon and Spa's modern, family-friendly facility opens its doors daily to welcome people seeking beauty and stress relief. Whether cutting, coloring, perming, or conditioning, the stylists create hairdos that perfectly complement their hosts. Choosing from a generous selection of facials, the spa's aestheticians make quick work of acne and fine lines, and massage therapists use deep-tissue, hot-stone, and Swedish techniques to soothe muscles sore from trying to twist hot air balloons into poodles. Waxing and nail treatments round out La Salon and Spa's long list of services.
For more than 30 years, the family owners of Salon La Mode have supervised teams of stylists and aestheticians as the staffers cut hair and apply acrylic and gel nails. Natural light helps stylists concoct precise hair colors during the day, and after-hours appointments make Brazilian and eyebrow waxing available to people who spend the daylight hours willing themselves to perform photosynthesis.
