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.
The stylists at Fantastic Sams keep things simple?but that doesn't mean plain. At salons scattered across the United States, the mane-makers fill a head of hair's everyday needs with services such as adult cuts, bang trims, and facial styling. They also go beyond basic services with texturing treatments, foil highlights, and hair relaxers more effective than simply slipping some gin into the shampoo. All services are complemented with their trademark FantasticStyle shampoo therapy, a treatment that includes a three-minute scalp massage and a nourishing argan-oil serum.
A Paul Mitchell signature salon, Coiffureous George outfits fashionable forelocks with a bevy of beautifying services and products plucked from international design books. After redefining a fusty look with a custom cut and style, the salon's skilled stylists manicure manes with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger treatment, reshaping locks into dapper ’dos crafted from newly strengthened, protected, and hydrated tresses. A 10-minute stay beneath a blow dryer helps evict excess moisture and lock in good-looking shocks of hair, and a 10-minute massage eases scalps stressed after attempts to count every hair on your head.
The stylists at Teresa & Friends Hair Studio are versatile. They can just as easily shave a man's head as they can style a woman's hair into a side-swept bob, complete with multidimensional highlights. They use their styling savvy to give back to their community, too; they donate free haircuts to the homeless, and they hold Cut-A-Thons to raise funds for charities.
