Since opening in 1996 as a barbershop, Solaris Hair Salon has undergone a complete renovation and added women’s salon services, manicures, and spray tanning. Owners with more than 20 years in the beauty industry run the salon, where a team of stylists suits facial features and styling preferences when they render men’s, women’s, and children’s haircuts. They pull from a library of more than 500 hair colors; Chi Ionic’s shades are ammonia-free, and Clairol Professional color has a soy complex that conditions and adds shine to hair.
At the salon's manicure stations, nail technicians coat digits with regular or Shellac polish, and perform specialty manicures such as an anti-aging version with antioxidant-rich grapeseed oil and pomegranate exfoliant. The team also administers spray tanning from Fake Bake, which enriches skin with a paraben-free botanical blend that promises not to turn orange, like the chameleon you’re hiding in the grass.
To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend human rights" and "Protect our planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, “She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.”
Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to a UK-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the Blue Corn 3-in-1 deep-cleansing scrub mask often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, and other national publications.
Co-owners Wadiya Adger and Georgina Weston, along with hair-design and color specialist Candace Aloi, pamper clients with personable salon services for all hair and skin types. Leaning on their extensive beautifying experience, the trio deftly delivers highlights and cornrows along with less hirsute pursuits, such as waxing, body scrubs, mani-pedis, and anti-aging facials. Slinging handpicked products by Redken, Pureology, and Aveda, the trio of beautifiers sets to work, revamping styles for everything from a night out on the town to a quiet date watching a film about a night out on the town. Not content to only focus on hair, the professional prettifiers soothe clients with spa treatments, such as a hydrating body wrap or peeper-enhancing eyelash extensions.
The stylists at HairSense are versatile—not only do they pride themselves in revamping hairstyles, they also sculpt ornate up-dos and other lavish looks in preparation for proms, weddings, and special occasions. To this end, they administer a full range of hair services, including designer cuts, perms, color, and conditioning.
While a stylist takes care of your hair, feel free to relax and enjoy a cup of complimentary coffee, tea, or a glass of wine. There's free WiFi, too, so it's possible to search for the latest hairstyles and then email the president for his opinion.

Inside a salon painted in vibrant purple and blue hues, stylists help clients hone their style with Matrix and Bed Head products and a menu of hair-centric treatments. Uniquely shaped mirrors allow patrons to lecture mirror-selves on strict salon-cape dress codes, while stylists revamp manes using scissors, expertly blended color, and texturizing treatments. Salon Flow’s lobby stocks its retail section with a variety of unique jewelry from Manuela’s Creations, allowing patrons to accent new ‘dos with the glow of knowing 25% of the proceeds go to St. Jude’s Hospital.
Tru Salon’s co-owners, Jennifer Collins and Maria Kett, welcome clients to their full-service salon with a homey atmosphere, complemented by high ceilings, drop lighting, and elegant mirrors. Their staff stocks high-end products from brands such as Schwarzkopf, Redken, and Rusk for hair and OPI and Essie for nails. With these high-end elixirs in hand, stylists skillfully cut straight or curly hair, in addition to performing color touchups or administering entirely new head hues. Special-occasion updos ready clients for nuptials and artificial eyelashes add more flutter to peepers. Keratin treatments straighten strands for up to three months by filling in cracked gaps in the follicles and bolstering every lock's protein content.
