An Aveda concept salon, Shine staffs expert aestheticians who woo customers with a comprehensive menu of beautifying and calming services. Haircuts ($35 for women, $20 for men) feature complimentary head, neck, and scalp massages to calm scissor-fearing tendrils, while non-scalp follicles can be sentenced to waxing, from simple lip pruning ($10 and up) to a full Brazilian deforestation ($65 and up). A manicure ($20) and pedicure ($35–$65) can restore shoddy digit tips to their original state of glamour. Pre-prettified figures can revel in a 30-, 60-, or 90-minute signature relaxation massage ($35–$85) from the licensed therapist, which features an effleurage barrage designed to ward off tax nightmares and melt away tensions. This Groupon can also be used toward products or pricier services such as the aromatherapy hot-stone massage ($80 for 60 min., $110 for 90 min.), which blots out agitation with essential-oil scents and sizzling basalt rocks.
In 2012, Salon 2000 helped 38 people donate 469 inches of hair to help create wigs for children suffering from medical hair loss. As part of the Spread the Love campaign organized by Matrix, the salon provides fundraising and charitable opportunities for Locks of Love and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Salon 2000 also offers a 20% discount on all new products to clients who bring in gently used products. The salon donates these products to Casa de Vida, a nonprofit organization that provides housing for pregnant women aged 12–22 who are experiencing homelessness.
When owner Rhonda Clark and her team of stylists, manicurists, and an aesthetician aren’t helping make the world a better place, they are helping clients feel better about their appearances. They cut off split ends and add rich hues to strands. They shape nails and tend to cuticles and remove unwanted hair with waxing. They also treat skin problems with targeted microzone treatments.
Beauty is a family affair at Family Traditions Beauty Salon. The mother-and-daughter duo in charge welcomes clients into their salon as if they were their own kin, but without the kissing. Within their cordial confines, they specialize in both hair and nail services, revamping guests with mani-pedis and updated cuts and styles. They relish in adding a bit of pizzazz to their services, whether they're with weaving funky highlights into locks or enhancing nails with glittery electric-blue tips.
