Joe Grondin built a time machine out of shaving cream, steamed towels, and aftershave. A master barber for more than 30 years, he longed for the halcyon days of the classic barbershop: a time when grooming was unhurried and conversation was meaningful. So in 1999, he opened the first Rooster’s Men’s Grooming Center in Lapeer, Michigan. Today, Rooster's’ barbershops can be found from coast to coast, but Joe's original vision remains intact: precision cuts and 7-step shaves with generous helpings of neck powder and personal attention.
Joe's barbers keep that old-school spirit alive with the Roosters Club Cut, which includes steamed towels and shampoo head massages. During their signature 7-step shaves, they prep men’s faces with moisturizers and massages before shaving every last whisker down to the skin. Rooster’s also offers camouflage coloring to keep grey hairs from standing out in an otherwise full and leafy beard, and the shop honors military, police, and fire personnel with discounted haircuts.
To put it simply—and in their own words––the staff at Aric Ashely Salon are in the business of making people look and feel their best. To that end, they stock the salon's shelves with a full line of Redken styling products to aid them in every cut, corrective-color service, and elegant updo. For a transformation that’s truly head to toe, aestheticians deploy wax to whisk away fuzz from lip to leg and render faces flawless with airbrush makeup.
Kelsey is a hairstylist working out of the full-service Grayson Salon. Amongst other stylists, manicurists, and massage therapists, Kelsey sculpts fresh hairdos that embellish each client's most flattering features, from high cheekbones to neon-colored beauty marks. On top of cuts and conditioning services, Kelsey also fills in coifs with highlights and color that add dimension and vibrancy.
65th Street Salon Studio's team of friendly beauticians, which ranges from Great Lengths Extensions–certified stylists to massage therapists, unites a variety of specialties to pamper a diverse clientele. Salon staff consults with clients to provide top-notch haircut and color services and hair-removal treatments. The facility’s spa hosts such indulgences as manicures, pedicures, and facials, and the resident beauticians apply makeup for brides-to-be, whether they're getting married that day or just fixing a leaky pipe under the kitchen sink.
Salon Fusion’s team of six stylists tends to tresses with luxurious products from Brazilian Blowout, Moroccan Oil, and Aquage. Deft scissor hands shape unruly locks into custom ’dos, lengthen tresses with Babe extensions, and smooth strands with advanced Brazilian blowouts, which boost shine more subtly than a teaspoon of mirror shavings. To complement head-hair services, seasoned techs can also wax away unwanted stubble throughout the body, bronze physiques with Fake Bake spray tans, and enhance facial features with expertly applied makeup.
A trio of beauty veterans oversees services at Accolades Salon Spa, making clients feel at ease as a team of experienced stylists, aestheticians, and nail techs performs pampering services inside the Highland Park beauty haven. Stylists improve coifs with precision cuts and straightening treatments using Aveda and Clean Enhanced Organics products. Clients reclining in the spa's private treatment rooms enjoy brow tints, eyelash extensions, and custom massages expertly executed by aestheticians who pack their beauty belts full of seven Arigato skincare products, which are chemical-free and only contain a maximum of four ingredients.
Back on the salon floor, nail techs embellish hands and feet with organic mani-pedis that sheathe fingertips and toes with colorful layers of OPI polishes and CND base- and top coats. Feet wading in the warm waters of a pedi throne basin can take their time as the chair's massage and heat settings melt back muscles into pools of butter. Accolade also provides man-centric services such as hot-towel shaves, as well as advanced cosmetic injections performed by an onsite doctor.
