While awaiting simple trims or hair-smoothing keratin infusions at Salon Orlin, guests lounge in comfy leather chairs and pipe in music through their smartphones from the salon's Internet jukebox. Skilled stylists nourish tresses with vitamin C, create stunning styles with flatiron curling or updos, and manicure brows and faces with waxing. Tanning beds add healthy splashes of color to skin, and "juicing" adds healthy splashes of color to hair.
Delicate braids pinned up with pearls. Elegantly cascading curls. 1920s-inspired waves. Brides that head to Hair by Joni are sure to leave looking picture perfect. Their updos range from classic to modern to somewhere inbetween. But that doesn't mean clients have to wait until a special event in order to make an appointment. Stylist Joni Corrigan runs Hair by Joni out of Allure Hair and Nail Salon, which also provides blowouts, facial waxing, and coloring treatments.
With a slew of hair-centric services, Amie Sedlar of PureBeauty aims to gussy up guests, whether they need a quick trim or a hue overhaul. Following a friendly meet 'n' greet where Amie gets to know you and your style goals, she gets to work clipping dead ends, applying dimensional highlights, and styling hair into show-stopping 'dos. Additionally, light waxing services are available, such as brow shaping, and lip and chin waxing.
The stylists at Hair Fiddlers demonstrate a passion for hair not only by listening to clients closely and trying to make them leave with smiles, but also by continuing education and attending hair shows and private classes. Though she’s been hard at work since 1993, one of the stylists, Sandy, continues to sharpen her skills, learning both new techniques and new trends. Inside the intimate boutique, the team applies their knowledge with Keratin Complex smoothing treatments, as well as formal services including wedding styling and coloring. They also perform glossing treatments that create bright shininess in case all your light bulbs burn out and you’d rather just wear a lampshade around the house.

“C’est la vie” is a French phrase typically used to describe an unfortunate, yet inevitable outcome. The stylists at C'est La Vie Salon flip that phrase on its head, cutting and coloring hair to ensure that their clients never accept lackluster style as just another part of life. In addition to conditioning hair with MoroccanOil treatments and products from Kaaral, Abba, and Silis, the salon’s staff coats nails with chip-resistant CND Shellac polish and brightens skin with 90-minute Eve Taylor facials.
