The deep, richly stained wood that distinguishes the interior of Twirl Hair Studio vaguely harks back to old-fashioned barbershops, but the salon couldn't be more modern in its work. Each stylist keeps pace with emerging techniques and products with continuing education. During each cut, color, and style service, the stylists apply professional products from makers such as Neuma, whose sustainable, toxin-free organic ingredients are manufactured with wind energy, 100% recyclable material, and tears of joy from flowers. In addition to hair services, the staff also oversees skin by rendering waxing services and primps hands and feet with manicures and pedicures.
Signature Salon’s experienced aestheticians revamp mugs with four one-hour facial treatments. After entering the modern setting bedecked with dangling vines and boldly painted walls, guests meet with an epidermal expert for a quick consultation to assess skin’s woes and career ambitions before beginning one of four targeted facials. Signature facials renew lackluster skin with a deep cleansing and exfoliation, and aromatherapy sessions soothe both skin and souls by adding blissful scents and permanent scratch and sniff tattoos. Clogged-up pores cower in fear during acne facials, which perform raids against blemish-causing excess oil. Much like a disheveled super hero, anti-aging facials do battle with unwanted wrinkles, revamping skin and helping reduce the appearance of fine lines.
For more than 20 years, Forever-French Salons' staff members have beautified clients' fingers and toes with everything from familiar nail treatments to its signature French-style acrylics. The popularity of the pink-and-white acrylics and gels stems from their glossy, natural look and dependability; they can last for up to four weeks without fading, lifting, or breaking. At the salon's locations in Franklin and Norwood, the staff performs a varied assortment of pampering nail services, including mani-pedis, hand-painted nail art, and no-chip gel manicures.
The stylists at Sage Salon & Spa pamper guests with hair, nail, and skincare services. Along with cuts and color, guests can visit the blow-out bar for fresh new styles with a wash and blowout, or extend their locks with clip-in extensions to impress the local prince. For faces, vitamin C or cranberry facials create healthy glows while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Makeup applications, lash extensions, and waxing services are also available.
Yellow glass pendant lamps swing over the bent heads of experienced nail technicians as they polish paws with coats of OPI, Essie, and China Glaze polishes. Cushy salon chairs cocoon patrons in luxury like a cashmere unitard while toes soak in deep basins. Skilled in gel and Shellac techniques, acrylic nails, and fills, technicians have no trouble adorning keratin squares with long-lasting color and design. Artwork lines the salon's walls, and soft yellow lighting permeates the gentle, warm ambiance.
At Zinc Spa & Nail Bar, complimentary aromatherapy turns the lion’s share of the spa services into all-encompassing sensory experiences. With paraben-free products such as LaLicious and Keyano Aromatics, body wraps and massages can transport clients to the tropics with mango scents or to a florist's yacht christening with whiffs of rose and champagne. Technicians at the nail bar also understand the importance of sensory stimuli and let their clients watch flat-screen TVs as coats of Essie and OPI polish dry to mirror finishes. The spa makes sure to tuck extras into every service—aromatherapy neck pillows vie for clients' attention against a complimentary beverage. This people-centered philosophy extends to the planet as a whole. The spa's botanically based, cruelty-free skincare and nail formulas can be brought back for refills at a 40% discount.
