As you might deduce from its name, Color Correction Salon's specialty lies in setting strands right after botched home dye jobs or summers spent touring with Jem and the Holograms. Owner Tom Sollock has taken his tinting talents to hair competitions around the world, picking up numerous awards and medals for his vibrant, cutting-edge designs. While color re-touch is a house specialty, its not uncommon to find clients leaving with shocking streaks of neon pink or electric blue, which the stylists create with top-quality pigments or clip-in extensions that offer all the pop without the permanence. In addition to cuts and color treatments, the salon welcomes the opportunity to makeover heads and faces for weddings and other special events, and frequently hosts kids parties complete with mini manicures, facials, and colored extensions for each pintsize guest.
Laura Kennedy takes care of hair. Amid the fun and retro ambiance at Crazy Beautiful Hair Lounge, she can cut locks, deep-condition them, and add color. The skilled stylist can also add dimension with full or partial highlights, or brighten up looks with single-process color treatments. Equipped with DevaCurl training, she can wrangle wavy and curly tresses in addition to straight locks.
Perfect Image's salon services refresh coiffeurs of every kind and its spa ministrations bring new vim to tired skin. The strand sorcerers on staff consult with clients before shampooing, snipping, and blow-drying their locks into coiffured majesty ($37+). When hair is unwelcome at the body party, aestheticians will kick it to the curb after meticulously daubing warm azulene body wax around eyebrows ($13), lips ($10), underarms ($20), and other areas seeking follicle liberation. Meanwhile, indulgent hides can pour over Perfect Image's extensive list of facial treatments including the Eclat Cocoon facial, which—like a paranoid umpire—swaddles visages in a double mask before unveiling refreshed skin ($85).
Nestled amid the black-curtained confines of Modern Elegance Salon and Spa, stylists and aestheticians forge stray locks into silky new hairdos and battle the signs of aging with wrinkle-reducing facials. Above heads, silver chandeliers drip with sparkling prisms, which send light bouncing off walls as staffers offer a menu of services that includes massage and waxing treatments.

Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I give an honest professional opinion about the situation and explain why this will likely not be a cut he or she will be satisfied with wearing.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
We have a vending machine and fresh coffee ready at all times.
Do you do natural hairstyles? If so, what services do you offer?
