Cathy Pennington uses colors ranging from classic blonds to vibrant blues to enhance her clients’ manes range. She puts them to work in highlights, as all-over color, in an ombre effect, or for a short-term riot of hues through hair pastels. Her creative endeavors also include trendy haircuts for men, women, and children; perms that create waves and curls; and facial waxing that removes fuzz on upper lips and teeth.
At Artistic Cuts Salon & Spa, a cool blue tile mosaic greets visitors when they approach the desk, scarcely concealing murals of swans and cranes that usher in a feeling of serenity. Beneath hanging lanterns, specialists perform a variety of salon and spa services for men and women. Stylists tame locks with custom haircuts, coloring, perms, and straightening treatments, which can be complemented by other beauty services such as waxing and permanent makeup. Spa technicians also reward bodies with massages, facials, and skin treatments such as microdermabrasion.
Don't be surprised if you notice a natural rapport between the stylists at Stagecraft LLC. Since the salon never rents out chairs to individual contractors, the stylists—all of whom graduated from Paul Mitchell schools—work together as a team while their clients sit back with a glass of wine, soft drink, or coffee. That means they can collaborate, if necessary, to devise a haircut, style, or coloring treatment using Paul Mitchell products.
