Renew Salon & Skin Care's Shanna Lynn bedecks lackluster lashes with Shavasana extensions. Initial eyelash installation takes one–two hours, during which Shanna secures single strand semipermanent Shavasana extensions to feeble fringes, hair by hair. The results are longer, thicker eye trimmings, giving you the confidence necessary to wink at strangers and unleashed dogs. After 48 hours, the freshly lashed can frost the extensions with mascara. A refill, which lasts less than 60 minutes, is recommended within two–three weeks.
After her first beauty-school client beamed at her new haircut, Brittany Harvey was hooked on seeing customers' smiles. She has since spent hours in professional classrooms?listening to lectures from companies such as Goldwell and Paul Mitchell?and at her salon station, deftly pursuing the reward of a grin. Often, that expression accompanies a walk down the aisle, as Brittany specializes in formal bridal-party services administered both on- and off site, or even on the bride as she's walking down the aisle.
When she's not working on weddings, Brittany might render extensions that lengthen strands into natural-looking cascades or trims that shorten coifs into flattering layers. Goldwell and Rusk products, meanwhile, aid her in applying highlights, corrective color, and all-over color. She rounds out her treatment menu with simple shampoo-and-style packages, as well as waxing for brows, chins, and lips.
Nail technicians unleash their inner artists with imaginative designs that complete manicures. They paint everything from cartoon characters to football players onto digits. The nail art isn’t the only service at Montage Hair and Nail Studio that steps outside the box. Stylists use a kaleidoscope of hues to color hair, including highlights in cobalt blue or hot pink. They also offer dramatic and classic cuts for men, women, and children. In addition, the stylists coat hair in speciality treatments, which condition and moisturize strands or remove chlorine, minerals, and last New Year's confetti from locks.
Cosmetologist Cynthia Norman offers a variety of beautifying treatments for women, men, and children at Lashawns Phase 2 Salon. She deftly trims bangs, braids hair, or spruces up heads with new haircuts. She also offers conditioning treatments, manicures, waxing, and natural haircare.
Based in the historic downtown area, Lunatic Fringe is at home among the neighborhood's posh restaurants and boutiques, and that's reflected in the salon's contemporary decor. A matrix of tiny spotlights stipple the salon's high ceiling, casting a glow on neon-green salon chairs, tall mirrors, and clay-tile floors. In this modern atmosphere, stylists snip, dye, and style men's and women's coifs with hair services, such as elegant updos and multidimensional color.
