Sam Laurenz Salon's menu of head-to-toe beauty services leaves just enough room for treatments dedicated to overall wellness and mental nurturing. Stylists lead the charge to reinvigorate images, crafting precision cuts or re-texturizing hair with billowy wave perms or smooth-as-silk straightening treatments. Away from the shears and shampoos, clients gather in private rooms to meet one-on-one with personal counselors or gather in group meetings to participate in the salon's Weigh of Life program––a weight-loss approach that encourages members to forget yo-yo diets in favor of portion control and the breaking of bad habits. Bad habits can also be banished with help from the salon's in-house hypnotist, who aims to help clients stop smoking, overcome anxiety, or overcome a crippling fear of hypnotists.
Sunlight floods through the large windows at the front of Kathleen's Hair Boutique, illuminating stylists cutting hair into flattering shapes and makeup artists sweeping Bare Escentuals mineral makeup onto faces. The beauty experts also create permanent waves, add sleek extensions, and wax off unwanted facial hair. They keep up with such industry techniques by regularly attending classes and hair shows.
Signature Skin Care began more than 60 years ago, when a passionate couple opened a local hair salon. Fast-forward to the present, and the salon now functions under their daughter, Betty, with beauty services performed by her daughter, Karen?a licensed and certified aesthetician.

She also performs myriad other beauty treatments that range from peels and microdermabrasion to eyelash and hair extensions.
Redken-certified colorist and salon owner Dawn Palmieri leads the way at Blonde D?s Hair Shop. She and her fellow stylists create their clients? dream looks with the help of products from Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil. Along with haircare services, they?ll prep ladies for a fun night out or an exceptionally pretty night on the couch with blowouts, makeup applications, and eyelash extensions.
While the stylists at Nimia's Beauty Salon can trim, color, and blowout hair, that's not what they're best known for. Their specialty always has been their formal styles, whether its updos for special occasions or stylish braids for a night on the town. They use a combination of nimble fingers, curling irons of all sizes, and a mist of hairspray to create looks that are romantic and soft or bouncy and full of life. They even can try out trendy styles, from fishtail braids to loose topknots.
