Meridians' staff instills wellness in both the body and mind with a full menu of hair services, massages, and holistic treatments. Skilled stylists use ammonia-free dyes and formaldehyde-free keratin solutions to style hair into streaks of smooth, silky hues. Inside sunny rooms, therapists uncork tension with skin-salvaging facials and massages that include private consultations before and after treatment. Meridians' therapy packages incorporate add-ons, such as sea salt and mud to therapeutic-exfoliation treatments, cleansing the skin of dead cells without the 1,000-page contracts involved in renting a bulldozer.
A style haven for the entire family, Salon Serenity Hair Design offers services for men, women, and children. Though the trained and talented stylists focus mainly on manes, they also beautify clients with cosmetic services such as airbrush tanning and waxing treatments for expressive areas such as the eyebrows, chin, and moustache. For more comprehensive care, the team can also upgrade finished looks with progressive treatments such as keratin treatments and extensions.
Maxime Salon's expert stylists care for beloved coiffures with a suite of hair-pampering services. The ultimate hair-repair system uses a bevy of specialized Joico products to strengthen scalp-bound hair, decrease hair breakage, lock in color, and enable Bea Arthur–style wig collections to be retired to storage. After an initial shampooing, a K-Pak Cuticle Sealer is applied to hair to coat damaged hair in heat-activated keratin solution before a reconstructor locks in hair-smoothing agents and douses coiffures in soothing negative ions, leaving hair healthier and shinier than an olive-oiled yoga instructor. Finally, a Joico Vaporiron, armed with ReconstructRx formula, vaporizes the compound as the iron pulses over hair, imparting cuticles with silicones, antioxidants, and essential acids.
Heads Up Hair Salon's stylists finesse frazzled locks with fashionable cuts and products from brands including Redken, Chi, and Onesta. A shampoo and scalp massage set the stage for the talented trimmers' handiwork and release genie apprentices. Then wig wizards set to snipping, informed by a close consultation with clients and any photos of celebrities or ancestors they bring in. Foil highlights or lowlights precisely illumine or shade strands with hues ranging from subtle to dramatic, or opt for all-over color to give every thread equal attention. In about two hours, the friendly Heads Up staff will send heads on their way with a blow-dry and a promise to write.
Salon LaRue's staff preps hands and feet for prettier punches and kicks with a classic one-hour manicure and pedicure. First, hands and feet are dunked in a soothing soak until their nails agree to soften up enough for clipping and filing. After the nail wizards have pushed overly assertive cuticles back to their proper positions, they'll exfoliate, massage, and moisturize hands and feet. Nail beautification culminates with a coat of OPI nail polish, leaving fingers and toes ready to dazzle every keyboard and sidewalk in sight.
