Creativity weds technique inside of Modern Designs Salon, where trained stylists craft the latest in trendy looks with an artistic flair. Fashionable overhauls come through in the form of haircuts and styles, brilliant colors from the Wella product line, and chemical treatments such as Amino Fusion smoothing. The staff also offers waxing treatments, manicures, and pedicures.
The professionals at Heads Up and Body Works beautify and pamper clients with salon and spa services ranging from haircuts to rose mud body wraps. And with spa packages such as All Dolled Up or the Dog House Special, they spend anywhere from two to four hours readying clients for special events or an evening of smiling gleefully at their reflection in the mirror.
Never one to settle for the stagnant beauty services of yore, technician ThuLan has travelled across the country to learn new treatments and proudly add them to her service menu. She imparts her knowledge of nail and eyelash care to clients from her nail station. To enhance mani-pedi services, ThuLan enlists the aid of such relaxing treatments as a hydrating paraffin wax, exfoliating green-tea mask, and hot-stone massage for the forearms and lower legs. She then decorates fingernails with a natural-looking silk wraps or a protective layer of shellac or organic SNS gel polish. And to personalize each pedicure service, ThuLan encourages clients to dip their toes into a pedicure chair's built-in whirlpool, which she fills with aromatic lavender salts and handwritten love notes. For faces, she provides waxing services and applies eyelash extensions, a trade in which she became certified after completing 200 hours of practice.
Nail tailors at the posh Off Center Salon & Spa console neglected feet with luxurious pedicures and transform hands into mobile fashion accessories with long-lasting polish. Hybrid CND Shellac polish cures under UV light, creating 10 chip-resistant shields that rebuff palms' attempts to absorb fingers for up to two weeks. T-spa pedicures begin with a fragrant lavender salt soak, which softens soles for exfoliation through a three-step green-tea mask. After scrubbing away calluses by holding them against an even rougher foot, gentle hands dispel lingering tension with an aromatherapy hot-stone massage and deftly paint digits in Chanel hues.
The New You Hair Salon's staff strives to put clients at ease as soon as they enter the waiting area, which features black leather armchairs, potted plants and vases of flowers, and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Before long, a staff member ushers customers back to one of the styling chairs that fill the red-and-tan-walled salon.
The staff consists of nail technicians and stylists who stay up-to-date with contemporary styling techniques by attending classes and competing in high-stakes trivia contests. They utilize these techniques along with professional haircare products by Schwarzkopf and Sebastian to reshape clients' locks into flattering looks that reflect their personal styles.
