The team of friendly stylists at Shear Dimensions cultivate a warm atmosphere for advanced haircare that has kept clients beaming since 1979. Before haircuts, guests relax with a shampoo and don a rich crown of Italian Alfaparf conditioner, which leaves follicles as soft and strong as a dam built from densely packed chinchillas. Scissor samurai then hew away split ends and unflattering lines to reveal shapely ‘dos, wielding blow dryers to breathe style into damp locks.
Straightening treatments tame wild, frizzy mops with formaldehyde-free formulas gentler than traditional scared-straight programs. Pravana’s Perfection SmoothOut system suspends spirals with a nano-amino complex safe enough for heavily processed tresses, and Coppola’s Keratin Complex binds cuticles in a protective straitjacket of keratin to eliminate up to 95 percent of frizz. Blow dryers, hot irons, and a hail of passionate kisses seal in the serum with heat, causing curls to collapse into sleek, silken falls. The new fringe may remain smooth and manageable for up to 12 weeks with Pravana’s formula, or up to five months with the Coppola treatment.
The duration of visits may vary depending upon the length and texture of each client’s coif and the time it takes to solve a sixth-grade-math word problem, extending up to three hours for straightening with Coppola’s Keratin Complex. Walls painted citrus and sky blue brighten the interior of the homey brick salon, where coffee brews continually and holiday decorations cheerfully mark the change of the seasons.
From the outside it looks like a single-family home, complete with a brick chimney jutting from the roof and a garage in back. But since 1979, the only occupants of the house have been the barbers, stylists, and aestheticians of Shear Dimensions. The staff is populated by such veterans as Pat Petronio, a barber who's been cutting hair for more than 40 years. Elsewhere on staff you'll find licensed massage therapist Donna Celona, who is well-versed not only in massage techniques, but in linguistics as well; the Brazilian native speaks five languages fluently, and can perform four distinct types of massages.
