Like a painter poised before her canvas, expert stylist Ayesha Lodhi sees endless possibilities when she stands in front of a head of hair. At Hair Quarters Salon, she straightens curly locks, shapes manes into stylish updos, and elongates strands with natural-looking extensions. She also transforms hair with precise coloring and highlights, both more practical methods of changing your hair?s hue than coating it in ketchup. Beyond her myriad hairdressing services, Ayesha refines brows with threading and removes unwanted hair via waxing.
Comfort is key at Waxing Mania, which is why the certified and licensed aestheticians only slather skin with organic hard wax during hair-removal services. This method is said to leave less residue than soft wax and is reportedly much less painful than duct tape. The techs also put clients at ease by maintaining a high level of cleanliness—including a strict no double-dipping policy—and keeping most appointment times under 30 minutes. All sessions are held behind closed doors in private treatment rooms, where soothing music and neutral décor create a peaceful ambiance.
Over the past five years, Effie Yazdani has continuously expanded her skincare repertoire, beautifying faces with Eminence beauty products concocted with natural ingredients such as coconut milk, wild plums, and rosehips. Effie Salon and Spa's facials target specific skincare issues such as blemishes, the effects of aging, or an unshakeable Sid Vicious sneer. The spa's aestheticians also tend to hands and feet with manicures and pedicures, and uproot hair from follicles with waxing or threading services. Creative Cuts, a hairstyling studio that shares Effie Salon and Spa's Canton location, keeps manes trimmed, straightened, or styled.
Trained in advanced precision cutting and coloring at Vidal Sassoon Academy, Zahra Negin has spent more than two decades as a stylist, including managing a top salon in Los Angeles. However, in addition to this experience, an equally important credential is her own hair?a mane of dynamic, natural-looking blond. At her eponymous salon, she specializes in color and cuts for blonds, although she and her team can also style hair of other hues with chic cuts, custom highlights, and keratin-straightening treatments. The team also customizes hair to clients' lifestyles, aesthetics, and collections of tiny hats by offering comprehensive consultations, before styling, shampooing, and conditioning hair with products by brands such as K?rastase and Moroccanoil. For an additional customer-friendly touch, the salon offers complimentary extras, such as shampoos with neck massages.
Beauty is more than a goal at Ruby Beauty Center. It's a mission. Working traditional Indian influences into Western aesthetics, the skin, hair, makeup, and massage experts help men and women achieve everyday beauty and specialize in bridal makeovers. Whether seeking softer, younger-looking skin via one of the spa's dozens of facials, or catching all eyes with mehndi makeup for the hands and henna for the hair, clients can enjoy total self-transformation without setting up an elaborate teleportation accident. They also offer waxing, hair coloring, and threading treatments.
Black, white, and gray tiles zigzag behind the shampoo station at Nuvo Salon—they speak to the color scheme of the rest of the interior, from a gray floor and a black ceiling to the glass shelf-flecked white walls. The professional staff that calls this elegant location home invites clients into black, cube-patterned leather salon chairs for decadent hair care services. Stylists commit themselves to updating their skills in order to stay at the forefront of current trends. Along with free consultations, the team presents products from Moroccanoil and Aveda, a fully stocked refreshment bar, and free WiFi—which stands for wireless fishing, aka, achieving the impossible.
