Staff members at A Touch of Beauty Salon and Spa pamper their clients from head to toe with treatments ranging from modern haircuts to essential-oil-infused pedicures. During hair services, stylists revamp coifs with haircuts and braided cornrows, and brighten tresses with all-over color or highlights. They also adorn locks with sew-in extensions, quick weaves, and custom-made wigs, ideal for adding instant glamour or thoroughly confusing the mailman. On the spa end of services, technicians customize facials to each client’s skin type. Body scrubs and wraps infused with African shea butter moisturize the skin, and manicures and pedicures pair with paraffin dips and peppermint oil to soften paws.
Owner Melissa Gilbert helms a professional staff of trained stylists that crafts new hairstyles, revitalizes hair color, and removes unwanted facial fuzz with waxing treatments. Each service begins with a consultation, during which the stylist can assess each client?s cut and make recommendations based on hair and skin type, condition of strands, and the color of their foulmouthed parrot sidekick. Aiding in complete care is the studio's stock of products from popular brands such as Redken, Entity Beauty, and Glow Therapeutic. Studio M accommodates all species of hair, as stylists are trained to deal with all hair types, including long, curly, and invisible.
Studio M?s aestheticians are also trained to deal with all types of skin. They reduce the affects of aging, including hyperpigmentation and fine lines, with vitamin C facials, and they target acne and clogged pores with purifying deep pore facials that rely on a medicated treatment and amino mask. The skin savants even custom blend their facials to tackle a client?s specific skincare needs. In addition to cosseting faces during facials, the aestheticians pamper hands, arms, and feet with massages using heated mitts still warm after extracting a pie from the oven.
Hope Hair Spa's stylists get folks back on their game with a full array of haircare services. Along with cuts, color, and styles, the pampering extends to hands and feet. Gel manicures keep nails chip-free and polished for weeks on end, but the crown-jewel in the spa's nail care line is the waterless pedicure. In addition to pamper feet without risking upsetting Poseidon, the process cuts down on waste by using steamed towels wrapped around the feet. Once feet are feeling soft and refreshed, the nail specialist shapes nails and cuticles, exfoliates with a sugar scrub, and massages feet before applying nail polish.
Moroccanoil, Design Essentials, and Kenra hair products help Voda Hair Design’s stylists revamp their clients’ manes. They work inside the shabby-chic salon, where vintage brick walls are dotted with with whimsical paintings in bright blues, oranges, and reds. Industrial-looking workstations host men and women during anything from simple haircuts to fancy updos with cascading curls.
The Ohio Academy Paul Mitchell School transforms hair lovers into trained hair experts, arming students with the skills it takes to snip and color hair using Paul Mitchell products. As hairdressers go through a rigorous training program, they practice their cutting-edge techniques on guests to the school, trimming and coloring tresses under the watchful eyes of their instructors.
No head of hair is the same to the stylists at Naama Salon & Day Spa—each requires its own customized treatment. For women, those range from perms and cropped cuts to designs inspired by rock star mohawks. Even more complicated 'dos, like dreadlocks, are fair game to the Naama team, which can deftly re-twist or restyle dreads. Using L'anza Healing Haircare products, stylists can also brighten hair with highlights and color or soften tresses with L'anza's customized five-step deep-conditioning treatment. Besides haircare, the Naama team specializes in removing unwanted hair with waxing or rejuvenating skin with exfoliating peels, including Vitamin C and pumpkin varieties.
