Within the taupe-hued surroundings of Fraiche Salon, comfy black styling chairs stare into wood-rimmed mirrors, in which client's reflections transform during a variety of salon services. Along with haircuts and styles, highlights add streaks of vibrant colour to 'dos, and hair-straightening treatments leave manes stronger, shinier, and with the strength and elasticity to deflect oncoming boomerangs. Additionally, facials and waxing refresh visages and skin, and a kaleidoscope of packages such as Girls’ Night Out, Working Girl De-Stress, and Me, Me, Me, Me blend several treatments into a single session.
Adorned with ornate chandeliers, patterned wallpaper, and long, slender windows, 186 Davenport Salon exudes sophistication.

Staff members are always happy to answer questions and develop a plan for hairdo upkeep between salon visits.
Ben Sharifian's passion for hairstyling led him across the world: North America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Along the way, he's picked up tips and tricks to style all types and textures of men's and women's hair. He begins by consulting with clients, discussing their needs in order to design haircuts that will fit their personalities and lifestyles. Ben's skill set lies in not only crafting sleek cuts and natural-looking highlights, but also in dyeing hair wild, bright coluors and shaving intricate designs into men's hair.
The stylists of Westside Hair Studio Inc. never jump into a service. Instead, they begin with a total image consultation. This approach helps them to determine not only what hairstyle clients want but also what will best enhance their features, fit their lifestyle, and ease their fear of monsters criticizing their hair from under the bed. After the consultation, the stylists get to work twirling strands into elegant updos, trimming the locks of little ones, and adding length with hot-fusion and clip-on hair extensions. To further cater to its clients' needs, the contemporary salon—filled with minimalist decor and pops of black and red hues—remains open seven days a week.
As an arm of the Higher Living Brand—alongside a yoga studio, dental office, and dance center—Aphrodite Salon & Spa's staff embodies a multi-faceted, stress-free approach to looking good and living well. Inside the chic salon space, decorated with sleek, contemporary furnishings, stylists massage scalps and trim locks with products from MoroccanOil and Zotos Professional. In nearby private spa rooms, techs cleanse complexions with Dermalogica facials, tame tension with relaxation massages, and boost egos with Tic-tac-toe matches.
Stylist Peter Anthony has seen the last three decades through hairstyles and fashion trends. While he has kept up with the latest techniques, his approach to customer interaction hasn't changed much—despite the fact that other stylists now text their clients during haircuts for instructions. Mr. Anthony takes ample time to get to know his clients and learn what they want from hairstyles. Only then does he get to work cutting and colouring elegant looks for men and women, relying on products from Schwarzkopf and Paul Mitchell. To accommodate as many people as possible, Peter Anthony and his team happily chat with clients in English, Italian, or Romanian.
