Style-seeking clients have relied on Salon Celine for more than 20 years. With a master colorist on staff, the studio specializes in hair hues, but stylists also snip, condition, and style with professional products. Color services constitute about 75 percent of Salon Celine's business, and sylists will work with clients to customize colors to their style and needs. Meanwhile, across the room, a dedicated brow specialist tidies eyes, and makeup artists and stylists spruce up brides with wedding-oriented beauty treatments. To pamper even the busiest of clients, the receptionist pencils in special evening and weekend appointments by request, and a retail boutique provides Moroccanoil, Pureology, Joico, Matrix, Goldwell, and Coppola products to use at home.
The continually educated stylists of Ritz Hair Gallery transform manes into masterpieces with a dizzying array of services. The Moroccanoil Restorative Repair treatment counteracts damage caused by chemical processing and the sun's harsh rays in roughly 10 minutes. During the process, a cocktail of protein and argan oil restores elasticity, deeply hydrates, and strengthens strands to act as swinging ropes for kittens without snapping in half. A skilled specialist will then leave nutrient-coated locks smooth and silky with a soothing blow-dry.
Beers and haircuts might seem like an unusual combination, but they go hand in hand at The Suite Barbershop. After serving guests a chilled beverage, the experienced barbers work to create unique looks. The crew specializes in dramatic, eye-catching looks for men, from throwback styles with side parts and pompadours to high-altitude mowhawks and precision fades.
The shop itself has been designed with a similar mix of the old fashioned and contemporary: the black-and-white wallpaper is dappled with colorful pictures of classic cars and modern paintings by local artists. A mock fireplace filled with candles harks back to Victorian parlors, when all fires were too polite to fully burn.
Dr. Dionne Crawford is on a mission. The long-time podiatrist and founder of Crawford Podiatry & Aesthetics wants her clients to enjoy healthy feet without sacrificing beauty, so she's created a practice that offers both medical laser treatments and foot spa services. Here, she helps clients tackle toenail fungus and unwanted hair as well as rewards hard-working feet with pedicures and the faces of hardworking feet with foot facials. She also offers specialty pedicures that tend to the specific needs of seniors and diabetic patients.
At Dynamic Dental Design, Dr. Beckles specializes in prosthodontics. That means he can restore and replace teeth, giving patients a fair shake at a flawless smile. He fits teeth worn by years of neglect with porcelain crowns that look and act like real teeth?as do dental implants, which replace teeth that are missing entirely. An advocate of advanced technology, Dr. Beckles snaps shots with digital x-rays that not only use less radiation than traditional x-rays but also develop in about the same time it takes the Road Runner to run across Rhode Island: a few seconds.
The artfully weathered wood walls at Lalu'a Nails and Spa lend the space a rustic charm that's balanced out by bright red leather pedicure chairs, which invite clients to kick back and dip their feet into the bubbling footbaths. Once clients choose a color from the rainbow of nail-polish options on the wall, they settle into a cushioned chair for manicures that can include creative and intricate nail-art designs. Whether they're performing mani-pedis or waxing treatments, the attentive staff helps guests relax while they beautify their skin and nails.
