Honored as one of Salon Today ’s Salons of Distinction in 2011, Salon Debonaire perfects the art of hair adjustment with a host of lavish services that employ products from upscale brands such as Unite, Bio Ionic, and Onesta. Throughout the day, knotted clumps of hair flutter to the salon’s Brazilian-rosewood floors, their protestations drowned out by a symphony of snips as stylists craft textured and contemporary precision cuts. Coloring products from professional and USDA Certified Organic lines infuse newly minted hairdos with all-over color or partial highlights, and skilled aestheticians expel facial hair using wax or soybean-based Nufree. As the salon’s skilled stylists focus on their work, customers sip coffee inside a TV-equipped lounge or fling their wet mops against the wall to contribute to the salon’s modernist decor.

At Fit4Mom Richmond, moms can exercise without worrying about using a daycare facility or babysitter. That’s because babies are allowed to join in the classes, nestling in their strollers as moms work out with exercises such as power walking, strength and body toning, ab work, and stretching. The fitness instructors are all certified in pre- and postnatal fitness, and sometimes they lead specialty classes such as running clubs.
Behind Wardrobe’s quaint, cottage-like exterior, designer threads from the likes of Rachel Pally, Yoana Baraschi, and Project Runway finalist Kara Janx revivify tired trousseaus. A team of expert trend detectives help craft outfits for special occasions, update weary wardrobes, and cross-examine shifty hangers. Cookie Johnson dark-wash denim leggings ($141) snugly cradle lady legs and provide enough stretch to pole-vault down the catwalk. Add whimsy to fronts by donning a slate-gray collared tie top by Central Park West ($97), or cheer as oatmeal and camel pigments do wind sprints across a knit pullover from the same line ($152). Designer Rachel Pally’s signature comfortable cotton comes through in scoop-neck pocket tees ($87) and maxi dresses ($140+), the hem-free bottoms of which can be trimmed by hand or carried around by tiny garment elves.
