Unique Hair Salons’ staff of senior and master stylists specializes in All-Nutrient certified organic hair coloring, whose gentle vegetable oil and keratin protein base allows for longer-lasting colors and brighter shine. Before they add color, though, they can sculpt a fashionable hairdo, or straighten out unruly strands with keratin straighteners.
It calls itself a salon, but the extensive service menu at The Salon at 142 encompasses not only hair care, nail care, and makeup, but also facials and waxing treatments worthy of a "spa" title. Along the glossy hardwood floor, a sunlit row of photosynthesizing salon chairs and mirrors stripes the airy interior, which is manned by an experienced staff. Even toddlers are welcome at the styling stations as the team has experience styling the coifs of entire families. Sepia-toned photographs of flowers nestle into frames, lining the walls of a private treatment room where hot towels, paraffin wax, hydroxy acids, and specialty serums coddle faces, hands, and feet.
With an impressive resume that includes nearly 20 years as a cut and color specialist and certifications in ombre color, razor cutting, and keratin treatments, Cristina Kohlman proudly and confidently helms Kristen Salon. Of course, like all good salon owners, Cristina has an equally impressive team of stylists and aestheticians by her side. Together, they revamp clients from follicle to pore with a line-up of hair and skin services.
In the salon, stylists lop off split ends, enhance short ‘dos with So Cap Hair Extensions, and condition and color hair with products by Eufora and Kevin Murphy. Aestheticians invite clients into private treatment rooms—and not just for Dermalogica facials, but also for waxing treatments and makeup applications. Kristen Salon provides special services to bridal parties and reception waiters who, for once, would appreciate a little recognition.
The stylists at Shazi's Hair & Beauty Salon provide the latest styles to clients in need of a haircut, color change, or eyebrow shaping. They also restore damaged hair with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger products. Using these products during a Keratriplex treatment, the stylists reduce breakage by up to 80%.
Decked out in soothing amber colors, Cynthia's Salon Day Spa is designed to provide an escape from everyday stresses. Inside, a team of skilled nail techs and aestheticians administers treatments ranging from mani-pedis with Swarovski nail art to chemical peels and oxygen-therapy facials.
One glance at their arsenal of products and it becomes pretty clear where Salon Pure gets its name. Stylists at this Chelmsford beauty spot primarily use all-natural serums—a sign they're committed to not only making hair beautiful, but also keeping it healthy. One of their prized products, YoColoring utilizes the lactose found in yogurt to strengthen, nourish, and protect hair all while safely adding a touch of color without using even a hint of ammonia or werewolf blood. The salon's go-to keratin treatment, Simply Smooth, follows the pure course as well, purging all harsh chemicals to create a botanical-based formula designed to block frizz and smoothen hair for at least 30 days.
Just as they care about the health of hair, Salon Pure’s crew also cares about the health of the community. So, they often donate their talents and resources to local organizations, including “Mom Prom,” which benefits breast-cancer research at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
