Massage therapist Shanna Hartwig joins a team of aesthetically savvy stylists at Salon at Victorian Village. They render haircare services and massages take place inside the salon, which itself is nestled in the picturesque Temple Terrace shops. At the salon’s boutique, clients can find jewelry, hair products, and other ideal gifts for the holidays or any other time of the year when there’s a bit of dead forest in the house.
Plants, eclectic vases, and a terra cotta accent wall welcome guests into Salon Mirage's cozy environs before they undergo expert mane makeovers with quality products such as Paul Mitchell and Wella's Koleston Perfect hair color. Tress tamers consult with clients to blueprint plans of action for sculpting new 'dos based on face shape, eye color, and car-roof height. In addition to cuts and color, the stylists also create sleek styles with keratin treatments and rid faces of unwanted hairs with waxing services.
A refreshing breeze off Dorset Lake fills Backstage Salon and Spa, where clients relax during a variety of salon and spa services. Hair procedures range from simple cuts for men, women, and children to more complicated services, such as organic keratin treatments, dimensional color, and relaxers. Spa services include long-lasting Shellac manicures, eyebrow waxing, and facials that cleanse and hydrate faces better than dunking them in buckets filled with soapy water.
The stylists and makeup artists at Jazzy Jewels Parties count everyone from models prepping for the runway to brides to girls visiting a salon for the first time as previous clients. Their services include updos, facial waxing, glitter body art, makeup applications, and glitter extensions, which they pare down for kids’ parties.
Within every Salon Loft location resides a coterie of talented tendril-tamers, each stylist providing different services, styles, and prices. At the Carrollwood location, participating stylists perform stylized women's haircuts ($48), demineralizing treatments ($20), and 16th-century French librettos. Tyrone Square's Salon Loft features follicular artisans who provide women's ($50) and men's ($40) haircuts tailored to each client's special brand of thought-holder. Peruse the stylists' specialties and prices online and then book an appointment without ever touching a phone, carrier pigeon, or minivan-mounted megaphone.
Stylists at True Colors Hair Salon add shape and tint to washed-out tresses with products from GKhair, Paul Mitchell, and L'Oréal Paris. After conferring with clients to determine hair dos and don'ts, mane managers snip strands into face-flattering angles, voluminous layers, or imposing Greek columns. Hair-gloss treatments add shine to hirsute halos, and partial or full sets of highlights set indigenous hues aglow. For complete head makeovers, double-process color lightens dark locks several shades without brassiness. Frizz-prone clients may opt to cosset curls with a GKhair treatment's special blend of proteins, called Juvexin, which penetrates the cuticle to tame flyaways and rabid sun visors for up to five months.
