Usha Salon & Day Spa might best be known for meticulous threading services, which twice garnered a spot on Baltimore Magazine's annual "Best Of" list. But the skills of the house stylists and aestheticians don't stop there. They can also reshape coifs with stylish cuts and add face-framing dimension with highlights services. Nearby, Usha's henna artists use traditional Indian techniques to install intricate designs that are perfect for standing apart from the crowd or blending in with a pile of tea-stained lace. Clients can also take a break from humdrum chores with soothing facials and massages.
Many different cultures and ethnicities contribute to the tapestry that is America, each with its own traditions and customs. At Eden Salon, stylists embrace all hair types no matter the ethnic background. They specialize in hair services that cater to a wide array of hair textures and types, like curly, kinky or super fine. They can create a natural look, press hair to straight and soft, or add extensions to existing tresses.
Inside these sister salons, skilled professionals revamp bodies, heads, hands, and feet with a full menu of glamorizing services. Stylists at both the Little Italy and Mt. Washington salons perform custom haircuts for both women and men and specialize in color services, doling out single-process shades, corrective color, partial highlights, or thought-illuminating skylights. They can also make permanent waves with chemical treatments or scare hair straight with japanese hair smoothing, and those looking for full-body pampering will find massages, rejuvenating facials, and nail treatments.
Meander through the sunny rooms of Trenditions Salon, and you can catch a glimpse of stylist Rebecca snipping up a sleek pixie cut or Tara coloring hair in glimmering golden highlights. During football season, you might spot stylist Cheryl adorning locks with bold purple tinsel extensions in honor of the Baltimore Ravens. The trio of seasoned hairdressers bustle across the salon's handsome hardwood and cheerful checkered floors, performing an array of hair services for women, men, and children alike. They smooth frizz with advanced hair-glossing and Japanese straightening treatments, and arrange locks into elegant up-dos for formal events. The versatile beauticians also extend their expertise to facial waxing and transform faces with professional makeup application services—ideal for brides primping for their big days or competitors in very serious games of hide-and-go-seek.
Similar to the mirrors found in the dressing rooms of Broadway theaters, the long mirrors mounted on the walls of Salon Craft are framed by thin lights, lending each styling station a glamorous energy. But the real show can be viewed in the mirrors’ reflections where stylists engineer sleek layers, wrangle fussy curls, and smooth down frizz. Private waxing sessions also manage difficult strands, lifting away unwanted fuzz from upper lips and brow outskirts. While waiting on highlights to set, clients may sip coffee at the refreshments bar.
