The staff at Shannon Michael Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, are not ones to learn through trial and error. Rather, they go through purposeful monthly training to stay apace of the latest trends and techniques. Haircuts and coloring from pro- and master-level stylists testify to the success of their mission, with results both elegant and cutting edge. The staff also deliver elaborate nail services, such as hot-stone manicures and peppermint foot masks with warm towels and hand and foot massages.
The professional hair curators at Shannon Leigh's Salon apply know-how and fortifying treatments to fashion newly shorn manes into eye-catching hirsute exhibits. Scissors deliver pink slips to split ends before stylists craft coifs into fresh and fetching variants, teaching clients how to maintain their new 'dos at home or after a whirlwind date with a hurricane. A deep-conditioning treatment seeps into and rehydrates strands parched from harsh chemical treatments, and a colorist tints hair in a subtle or bold new chromatic overcoat.
Experienced aestheticians welcome you into Facial Impressions with a skincare consultation to determine the proper products to tend your skinscape’s isthmuses, mesas, and archipelagoes. The serene, homey spa then provides finicky skull-sheaths with a luxurious, 90-minute customized facial ($100) with Éminence Organic skincare products, which may include such delectable ingredients as crushed rose petals, paprika, cucumber, parsley, and cactus pulp to moisturize dry spots, waken tired patches, subdue outbreaks, evict toxins, and clean up any raging oil slicks. Professional cleansing exfoliates the skin, removing traces of makeup, dirt, and Dust Bowl–residue while Roto-Rooting backed-up pores for a beaming, fresh-faced glow. All facials conclude with complimentary hand, arm, and neck massages to send strife sailing down the memory hole, leaving nothing but a trail of ingenuous bliss in its wake.
Acting as lash pioneers within Ohio, Botanica Organic Salon owner and veteran stylist Phyllis DiSalvo is one of the state's first Xtreme Lash stylists. Along with aesthetician Angela Chulack, they first rest clients on a comfortable massage table within Botanica's serene environment. Afterwards, they proceed to place a faux eyelash application onto clients' existing lashes, working to lengthen them to any desired length, width, or intensity. The salon's services eliminate the need to apply mascara every morning, and help clients do away with allergenic makeups, painful curlers, and damaging waterproof formulas.
A rustic wood-paneled ceiling, taupe walls, and exposed brick swaddle The Shear Shop in an earthy ambiance. Inside, stylists happily rework manes with scissors, hair dye, and extensions long enough to braid and belt around your waist. Facial experts and nail technicians continue with the pampering, and bowls of warm wax top off visages during brow waxes.
Face-saving aestheticians warmly welcome visages with a skin assessment inside Roni's Hair Forum's classically inspired interior, rife with scalloped columns and elegant vases. They can then customize each facial by epidermal type and age. But skincare is just one hair in the salon's ample coif. Skilled stylists can deploy an army of microscopic architects to shape and color hair to individual demands. LED teeth-whitening services restore teeth to their once radiant brightness. Guests can also seek a mani-pedi, completing their pampering from head to toe.
