The Mona Lisa’s famous grin fittingly welcomes visitors into DaVinci’s Salon and Spa, an oasis drenched in calm mocha hues where stylists disclose their beauty secrets and elicit grins with works of hair and nail art. Photographs of perfectly manicured nails hang before an arsenal of nail stations, where talented artists use OPI paints to create stylish masterpieces across fingers, toes, and foreheads. In the adjacent space, hairstylists wielding products by Pureology and Kenra add dimension and color to strands with luminous highlights, or sculpt formal updos and bouncy curled styles for special occasions.
When diet and exercise prove no match for out-of-control curves, Dr. Greg Denzel and his staff want you to know you still have options. Across two locations, including the pristine and cottage-like Windsor office and a Lafayette office, the staff streamlines silhouettes with varying degrees of invasiveness, from hormone-replacement therapy to SmartLipo to SuperSculpt. They also beautify mugs with dermal fillers, and usher in relaxation with massage therapy and the whooshing sound of knotted kinks fleeing the scene.
Technicians at The Wax Factory exude professionalism, but the salon's atmosphere is anything but stuffy. Touting a laid-back approach to appointments that welcomes walk-ins or hirsute skydivers who just happen to drop in, beautifiers lead clients to private treatment rooms where they evacuate fuzz from bikini borders in 10 minutes or tug fringe from brows, lips, and chins. Men can unwind in the calming lobby before gearing up for swimsuit season with a Manzilian or Mankini wax, and both genders can liberate limbs with whole- or half-leg waxing services that accommodate the changing seasons or the rise and fall of kilt hemlines.
The stylists at Salon Salon stay abreast of fashion’s latest trends so that they can craft both classic and cutting-edge hairstyles for men, women, and children. This ongoing education helps the fashion artisans perform an extensive list of services, including feather and tinsel extensions, updos, and Keratin Complex treatments, which can smooth hair until it's slim enough to fit into its old high-school sun hat.
Aptly named, RN Medispa and Salon, is owned by registered nurses Regina Nunnally and Tawnya Bowie, who welcome guests into the earth-toned, sconce-lit space for haircuts, coloring treatments, and exfoliating skin services. During salon appointments, rich wooden furniture punctuates the bright, open space, where a flat-screen television caters to both male and female clientele by showing a mixture of sports, soaps, and afternoon talk shows that point out the dangers of using gender stereotypes. And during spa services, plush massage tables anchor candlelit treatment rooms, where staff members soothe aches and pains with a variety of traditional techniques.
