Hair stylist Richelle may have graduated from Beauty College 8 years ago, but her schooling hasn?t stop. When not working inside Salon Loft Studio #4, Richelle fills her schedule with advanced classes designed around Big Sexy Hair, Paul Mitchell, Joico, Goldwell, Wella, and intensive Redken coloring and cutting techniques.

During services, she cuts and colors hair into classic and modern styles, and twists locks into updos for weddings or scuba diving excursions.
Star in your own “choose your own adventure” story that involves more beautifying and fewer sudden, unsatisfying endings. With today’s Groupon, $25 gets you $55 worth of services and products at Rejuve Salon and Spa in Carmel. Rejuve is easily accessible from Michigan Road by car and horse-drawn carriage, although horses have no thumbs with which to draw, and their carriage schematics appear unstable.
With a crew of well-trained shear-wielders at its helm, Allure Salon revives, revamps, and relaxes patrons in a chic, romantically lit atmosphere. Mane makeovers commence in the shampoo room, where locks are lushly lathered with a deep-conditioning treatment that will help soothe them of their frizzy tendencies and idolatry of painter Bob Ross (a $30 value). Next, the savvy head artists will assist in selecting the right cut for each client's face shape, lifestyle, and personality (a $34–$43 value). Using an arsenal of top-notch tools and skills acquired through advanced workshops, the strand sculptors will then go to work snipping, shaping, and styling overgrown neck shrubs into the bobs, pixies, layers, or trapezoids they were always meant to be.
Hair stylist and makeup artist Kristina Barlow loves to use her talents to create soft, natural looks for her clients. She does this from inside About Mei Salon, working one-on-one with her clients to create their ideal styles. While she can create any desired style, she specializes in Brazilian blowouts, airbrush makeup, dimensional highlights, and custom cuts. Eyelash extensions and waxing round out her list of specialty services. She often works with both brides and models, creating everything from abstract, high-fashion styles to the softer, more natural looks she finds many brides hope for on their special day.
Oversize folding fans and floral-print umbrellas hang from About Mei’s ceiling and walls, creating the impression of an Asian oasis in which guests may relax while stylists beautify their hair with cuts, highlights, and perms. The menu of services doesn’t stop at the scalp; staffers also enhance complexions with touches of makeup and remove fuzz from lips and chins with warm wax. While waiting for a treatment, relax on an ottoman in the reception area, where paper lanterns hang from the ceiling and dispense candy when hit at certain angles.

Beyond haircare, the New Leaf staff also waxes brows, upper lips, and chins.
