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.
Utilizing the Ne’Lani beauty system, an experienced makeup artist transforms visages with full-face makeup applications that outfit clients with glance-baiting radiance. For roughly 60 minutes, guests lounge inside the cheerful salon while being adorned with blush and eye shadow that complement features and colorful, shoulder-perched parrots. Clients can practice flirtatious eye batting after getting outfitted with long and luscious black lash extensions. Guests can opt for a three-month membership that blasts open the doors to beauty with $15 unlimited in-salon makeup applications. During a visit, each member can prepare for important events such as black-tie tractor pulls with a red-carpet-ready makeup application, or learn to deck their own faces with the most flattering shades.
Recessed lights loom above Salon St. Clair like stars, casting honey glow on earthen tile floors and cozy leather chairs. Amid these warm accents, skilled stylists snip away split ends and craft feature-flattering highlights. Clients can opt for a wide array of 'dos, ranging from a classic layered wave, to a mod pixie cut with pastel highlights. Mani-pedis are also available, as well as waxing to remove caterpillars clients may have picked up walking through the park.
“I’ve had a pair of clippers in my hand since I was 16,” says the eponymous Ray, whose passion for snipping locks drove him to found his own barbershop after years of working in others' hair studios. Now, he runs his own team of barbers, each of whom he trains personally. L’Oréal, Joico, and Paul Mitchell furnish the salon's services, allowing stylists to revamp manes of all hair textures and conditions, ranging from silken tresses to the hissing snakes of a gorgon. The staff enjoys challenges, from recreating classic styles to incorporating custom designs. Ray describes the microphone he once carved into a rapper’s hairscape before a photo shoot. “I like a challenge,” he explains. The design was challenging indeed—the mic's cord twined around his client’s head, down a sideburn, and across his face.
