Whether it's their wedding day or just an average day, the staff at Studio 247 wants clients to look and feel beautiful. To that end, they pull from a luxurious stock of products that includes Essie and OPI nail polishes, hair-nourishing Morrocanoil products, and Murad skincare serums that allow the studio's aestheticians to tailor each facial to their client’s specific needs. They perform an extensive list of services that they update regularly in order to keep up with the beauty industry's latest trends. The hairstyling team, for example, now specializes in 100% human-hair extensions as well as Brazilian blowouts, which transform frizzy locks into strands that are sleeker and shinier than a motorcycle carved from freshly churned butter.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
At Maria Giallanza Salon, a haircut becomes a sensory experience. With each styling session, the professionals include the luxurious Aveda Rituals—a Shampoo and Scalp Massage Ritual, Stress Relieving Hand Ritual, plus a Makeup and Lip Ritual all using Aveda's botanical products. The soothing scents of these natural beauty products waft through the air of the sleek salon, so guests can relax while the hair-tenders shape, texturize, and color locks. To complete new looks, the beauty experts can apply all-natural makeup, remove hair with wax, or inspire smiles by prank calling the mayor.
The color services and keratin treatments at Ignite Hairsalon are derived from organic products. The Organic Color Systems line uses no ammonia or other harsh chemicals, and is not tested on animals or imprisoned princesses. Keratin treatments are formulated with organic ingredients, nutrients, and L-cystine amino acids that together combat hair-loss and straighten manes. Besides hair services, the staff also offers mani-pedis. And, before leaving the salon, feel free to peruse the selection of hanging local artwork for sale.
Relaxation. Pain relief. General well-being. These are just some of the benefits massage offers. At Nails and More Spa, massage therapist Chyanne Perry nurtures these benefits with Swedish and hot-stone massages. By lighting scented candles and using essential oils, she creates an even more tranquil experience with aromatherapy. A master of many muscle-melting modalities, she's also an expert in reflexology, alleviating aches throughout the body by manipulating trigger points on the feet.
Trio Hair Studio flaunts a duo of manicurists, including coproprietor Laura Vivod, a mitt-primping maven who boasts more than two decades of experience. During the Shellac manicure, a talon tamer will thoroughly shape cuticles and cleanse, trim, and file nails, leaving tensomes as spiffy as a freshly laundered space suit. Next, claws garner an ironclad coating of Shellac varnish, an innovative polish that stays shiny and chip-proof for up to two weeks. Clients can rest newly prettied hands during the spa pedicure, as their pintsize piggies receive unparalleled grooming and a classic or offbeat hue of professional OPI polish. A bright red sign shepherds patrons into Trio Hair Studio, where they can mimic poorly crafted wristwatches by unwinding among a neutral-toned interior gussied up with chic brown stools and studio lighting.
