Hairport and a Touch of Class Tanning
Hairport and a Touch of Class Tanning has been in business for more than 25 years, though you wouldn't know it by the decidedly fresh look of its vibrant red- and lemon-colored walls and its unblemished dark-wood shelving. The same goes for the stylists, who remain linked, by way of continuing education, to the most current trends in beauty and fashion. And so experience and modern savvy combine in every haircut, coloring treatment, or perm conducted, resulting in a look that brings freshness and vitality to any head of hair or sentient spaghetti bowl. The salon also features standup and lay-down tanning booths, and mani-pedi stations helmed by nail artists whose spa manicures and sea-salt pedicures enrich the nails and the skin.
