For more than 20 years, John and Stacy DiJulius have been improving their John Robert's Spa brand and opening up locations throughout the Cleveland area, most recently with their newest outpost in Strongsville. And it's no wonder their brand is so popular?even when you're not in the spa it feels like you're getting a spa treatment.
Haircuts include a scalp, hand, and arm massage, a mini facial treatment, and a mini makeup touchup; pedicures can incorporate an exfoliating sugar scrub and hot-towel wrap. And when you retire to the actual spa, you can choose from services that range from Aveda's signature Caribbean-therapy body treatment to microdermabrasion to spray tanning.
Those who frequent John Robert's can enroll in a VIP rewards program and feel great about the salon giving back to charities including Rainbow Babies and Flashes of Hope.
Karen Couchie loves sailing in the Caribbean. As a result, the bright colors of the tropical paradise might unconsciously seep onto the nails or hair of her clients. As a nail technician and a Redken Specialist, she can artfully color nails or color and crop hair, but Karen doesn't stop at hairdos and finger hairdos. She's also a licensed tattoo and lash artist, so she can complement clients’ natural brow and lash lines with treatments that draw more attention to the eyes than blinking neon goggles. Her light touch can also be seen in the hairline strokes or color blocking she uses to fill out brows during permanent-makeup applications, which don’t smear or smudge when subjected to water.
Without proper maintenance, hair may grow rebellious and start a punk band to prove it. Luckily the skilled stylists at Reve' Salon keep hair in check with high-end products by Kenra, American Crew, and Paul Mitchell. Clients can request a classic wave with all-over color, flattering crewcut, or mod pixie cut with pastel highlights. The salon also offers other beautification services such as nail services and swift waxing to nix unwanted fuzz.
Gold-framed mirrors and zebra-printed chairs add pops of color to Salon Bella Vie’s understated color scheme with muted gray walls and wooden floors. It’s the place stylist Nicole calls her second home, a workstation with a sleek salon chair where men, women, and children sit during cuts, highlights, and games of I Spy.
