Feather hair extensions give humans the ability to fly and dogs the ability to blend in with the family of cockatiels raising them. Stand out from ordinary birds with today's Groupon to Salon Lux in Cranston. Choose between the following services:
- For $29, you get two feathers and one tinsel hair extension plus a hair wash & blow-dry (up to a $64 value).
- For $29, you get a Scrub and Rub facial (a $60 value).
As fragrant aromatherapy swirls through Salon Lux's vibrant orange-hued space, a crew of welcoming stylists and techs tend to beauty-seekers with a kaleidoscope of hair and spa treatments. Two feather hair extensions (each a $15 value) add an avian touch to mediocre 'dos with a slew of colors, from natural hair hues to vibrant strands that attract attention from peacock suitors. Further enhance the bundle of hair flare by tossing in a tinsel hair extension (up to a $4 value) culled from real lightning bolts. A consultation commences the hair appointment, to discuss proper strand placement and colors, before a thorough hair washing and blow-dry has guests waltzing back into the world with more confidence than an American schoolchild who's mastered the metric system.
Taking up to 60 minutes, the Scrub and Rub facial ousts impurities from the visage by cleansing and exfoliating the face as well as hydrating skin on the upper-body. A 10-minute Dead Sea-salt scrub keeps envious limbs from replacing faces with hand puppets by kneading the upper appendages and décolleté. The relaxing treatment whisks away rough skin lining the head pedestal, before a slathering of shea butter tops off the freshly exfoliated surface, restoring hydration to the epidermis and a sense of balance to off-kilter collarbones.
Salon Lux's owner is Cindy Wilson, a nail technician and reflexologist for more than three decades, who combined her dual passions into a single business where beauty and well-being blend seamlessly. This fusion produced a menu of services where trends such as feather extensions and smooth, speedy blowouts meet relaxing and rejuvenating facials that couple with aromatherapy scrubs and European or lymphatic massage. Stylists—including a graduate of Toni & Guy—also manage manes with color services, cuts, and smoothing keratin treatments, while bodies find their perfect bronze with hand-applied California spray tans that keep them safe from UV rays and winged sharks.
When not in the salon, Cindy can be found teaching classes in reflexology at the Learning Connection or volunteering at the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, where she offers reflexology for those fighting cancer.
