Lisa Gallimo has not only been cutting hair for more than 30 years, she's also maintained relationships with her first clients throughout that entire time. She works within the elegant Cheveux Salon, snipping and trimming hair to rid heads of split ends and flatter faces with customized haircuts. She also cares for frizzy hair with keratin smoothing treatments, which tame unwanted curls and render hair straight and silky.
Vogue (vōg) – noun: the prevailing fashion or style at a particular time. This is a fitting name for a salon whose staff is always on the fringe of the latest trends. A skilled stylist can craft a classic wave, a punk pixie cut, or modern layers with tapered ombre highlights. Clients can also request a signature updo for special occasions such a wedding or MMA match.
Inside Adagio Salon, hickory hardwood floors, oak-trimmed archways, and neutral tones create a space that's both stylish and relaxed—much like the salon's services themselves. The team of expert stylists use Moroccanoil and Kevin Murphy products to design a hairstyle that accentuate a client’s natural features, or they might install hair extensions for some added length. Elsewhere, aesthetician Yvette Remington uses eco-friendly products to target skin damage with several fruit-infused facials, including a pumpkin-peel facial that smells of Halloweens spent hugging every jack-o’-lantern in sight.

Between the retail shelves that average 500 nail polish colors, clients get gussied with services that pamper hair, skin, and nails.
The smell of sage and soothing music permeate the room as you lie on crisp sheets––and this is just the start of relaxation. Licensed massage therapist Precious Walker warms massage oil between her hands, then digs in––first to the shoulders, then the lower back, tailoring pressure to your wishes. Kneading and Swedish gliding motions segue into cross-friction pressure, slowly untying muscle knots and promoting a deep relaxation. Clients may also request a prenatal massage or specialty sports bodywork to expedite injury recovery.
