Off the beaten path and contained within the walls of a quaint, cozy house, All About You Salon & Spa welcomes and enchants ladies with rejuvenating, radiance-restoring stays. During facial treatments, the resident aestheticians proudly implement a bevy of Murad skincare products, each infused with essential elements for a range of skin types and sensitivities. Those seeking shine can opt for the Sun Undone vitamin C infusion facial ($85), which combines pure vitamins with a wrinkle-reducing collagen to restore smoothness and firmness, while more gentle mugs can meander into the Sensitive Skin/Redness Therapy facial ($85), which relieves dryness, irritation, and balances overall tone. Meanwhile, the popular Resurgence renewal facial ($85) restores moisture, resilience, and smoothness to your epidermal emoticon and features glycolic acid and fruit enzymes to help eliminate problematic dead skin cells, promote cellular renewal, and more. To truly knock out unneeded fine lines, guests can also delight their skin with the anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging powers of the AHA Rapid Exfoliator anti-aging facial ($95); pair it with the Intensive Wrinkle Reducer peel ($20 extra) to form a tandem that is so anti-aging, it makes Peter Pan look like a sell out.
Whether it's their wedding day or just an average day, the staff at Studio 247 wants clients to look and feel beautiful. To that end, they pull from a luxurious stock of products that includes Essie and OPI nail polishes, hair-nourishing Morrocanoil products, and Murad skincare serums that allow the studio's aestheticians to tailor each facial to their client?s specific needs. They perform an extensive list of services that they update regularly in order to keep up with the beauty industry's latest trends. The hairstyling team, for example, now specializes in 100% human-hair extensions as well as Brazilian blowouts, which transform frizzy locks into strands that are sleeker and shinier than a motorcycle carved from freshly churned butter.
Artistic prowess doesn't just appear overnight. It takes years of practice. That's why each of Dino Palmieri's salons, including the Dino Palmieri Salon & Spa, employs stylists dedicated to staying at the top of their games. The skilled stylists give each client one-on-one attention to ensure every hair service comes as close to the client's vision as possible, which is why it was named by readers of Cleveland Scene as the best hair salon in the city. The stylists add depth to hair with highlights, smooth rebellious strands with GKhair treatments, and apply expert perms to reshape hair's texture until each strand would turn Louis XIV green with baroque envy. That same level of personalized attention carries over into the salon's meticulous nail services, which clients can upgrade with moisturizing white-tea masks or herbal foot peels. Waxing sessions use body-safe Nufree botanical wax to keep skin calm and collected while hair says its goodbyes. Deep-cleansing Darphin facials can be infused with essential oils and plant ingredients such as orange blossom and licorice to relax clients and bring them closer to nature than sharing a hibernation den with their favorite grizzly family.
The color services and keratin treatments at Ignite Hairsalon are derived from organic products.

Keratin treatments are formulated with organic ingredients, nutrients, and L-cystine amino acids that together combat hair-loss and straighten manes. Besides hair services, the staff also offers mani-pedis. And, before leaving the salon, feel free to peruse the selection of hanging local artwork for sale.
