Over the past decade, Rivaz Salons has expanded to four locations where certified beauty professionals enhance natural beauty amid Indian-inspired accoutrements. Stylists update manes with haircuts, highlights, and color, and aestheticians accentuate looks with flare lashes and Shahnaz facials. Massage therapists perform traditional Indian massages with Ayurvedic oils, and trained specialists shape brows with a process known as threading. Three artists from India apply natural plant pigments to the skin as they design henna tattoos, which are said to attract joy and luck. When staffers aren't equipping clients for everyday beauty, they offer bridal packages for both traditional western and Indian weddings.
Sleek hardwood floors and a spacious interior greet clients at Westmont's Hair Garden Salon, where stylists clip, color, style, and deep-condition head threads with precision. Calibrating 'dos according to current trends as well as each client's lifestyle, mane masters meticulously shape locks for everyday looks or special events. In addition to coiffure care, professional staff rolls out nail services in the form of french manicures and paraffin-wax treatment with manicures and beautify countenances with makeup applications for a night out on the town or stuffed-animal nuptials.
Salon Ruelle is a urban setting in the suburbs. You will experience a very laid back environment were each stylist runs their own business. The walls are covered in graffiti and we will be listening to Bob Marley, Depeche Mode or maybe Adelle. No receptionist, you will always be dealing directly with your stylist.
Brow threading may be the raison d'être of the aestheticians at Eyebrow Expressions, but the team also ably branches out to de-fuzzing other parts of the body, including services for legs, face, and intimate areas. Inside the salon, which is located within Meijer, the aestheticians can also remove hair with threading, an ancient Indian technique that uses a long, wound cotton thread to zip hair away in precise lines without irritating the skin. Because the process is so gentle, the team can thread lips, chins, necks, and delicate vestigial wings.
Employing more than 35 years of experience and knowledge of current trends, Fran S. Pala transforms outdated coiffures into trendsetting styles with an array of services. Patrons can keep doppelgängers on their toes with a new cut and style ($35+), or challenge Mother Nature with a full color overhaul ($60+). A men’s cut ($19+) saves hours of photoshopping work on family pictures, while a special-occasion style ($45+) preps clients for last-minute elopements. Pala, who regularly attends inspiration-catalyzing continuing-education classes, books appointments Tuesday–Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
