Since 1997, Salon East has been servicing clients with Aveda-approved looks and other beautifying services. The full-service salon specializes in haircuts for men, women, and children, along with coloring and nail services. An impressive team of aesthetic professionals bring their notable backgrounds to the floor, where they channel their talents to enhance their clients' nature beauty. Together, they render a full slate of hair services, from styles and color treatments to botanical therapy—and not the kind that involves a plant growing on a psychologist’s couch.
The friendly staff at Zen Spa Lounge—located in The Sedgefield Shoppes between Marisol Restaurant and Blossoms—pampers clients with a lengthy list of massage, skin, and nail treatments. Therapists knead away tension and improve immune systems with deep-tissue massages and reflexology treatments. Aestheticians customize four kinds of facials to combat acne, dehydration, and dullness, perking up treatments with specialty masks full of football-movie pep talks and vitamins A and C.
At Star Rock Paper Scissors Salon, owner Star Marquardt knows a good hairstyle shouldn't just leave her client's looking good, it should let them leave feeling confident about the heath of their hair and the techniques used to make it look its best. That's why she favors hair care products by Intelligent Nutrients, which are petro-chemical free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, and paraben-free, and 100% USDA certified organic. When creating new hair hues, the Certified Master Colorist favors low-ammonia formulations from Alpha Parf, which shade tresses with professional results, but cause less damage than their high-ammonia counterparts. Deep conditioners and keratin-infused solutions also help Star re-hydrate hair left dry from over-styling or under-watering, giving the licensed stylist a healthy, hairy canvas as she creates a new cut, blow-dry style, or special-occasion up-do.
Owner Shelly Bergner began as a stylist at Elevate Hair Studio Glam before ascending the managerial ranks, straight past coif colonel and locks lieutenant. Today, she uses a decade of industry experience to lead her team in beautifying clients with a full menu of haircare, nailcare, and skincare services. The staff members maintain preparedness for such events by perpetually continuing their education, attending industry events and fashion shows, and sharpening their shears by asking them SAT sample questions.
It's only fitting that the name of Kendra Schmidt's studio, "le r?ve," is French for "dream," as each client can walk out with her dream look. At Le R?ve Hair Studio (located inside Sola Salons), the owner and head stylist taps into years of experience to create beautiful styles for her clients. She's trained and up to date on classic and trendy looks and is also a color specialist. Kendra exclusively uses Scruples hair products, a professional and locally made line.
From within her private suite at Sola Salon Studios, stylist Bethany Lewis brings out more flattering looks with trendy cuts and color treatments. The stylist keeps her door ajar six days a week, splitting her time between arranging coiffures and performing nail care.
