At Matthew's Barber, Beauty, & Nails, checkerboard floors support swiveling chairs where a stylist massages scalps and uses vacuum clippers to whisk away clipped whisps. Aestheticians daub fingernails with lacquer by OPI at blond-wood manicure stations, and stylists paint ‘dos with products from Enjoy and American Crew in a host of salon and spa services. Private rooms ensconce guests within serene taupe walls as aestheticians purify pores with steam and soothing masks, and unlimited tanning lets client bronze bodies in comfort without needing to build their own sun in the garage. Complimentary WiFi ricochets throughout the salon, bouncing signals off ephemera such as photographs, posters of Lucille Ball, and shadowbox shelves.
Five licensed cosmetologists run the hairstyling show at Shears The Salon, backing up certifications from Redken and Paul Mitchell, among others, by cropping and coloring strands into elegant styles. After consulting with clients to concoct hairdos that blend personal preference with current fashions, stylists send hair to the Wash House for sudsy cleaning with the salon’s signature shampoo. Thirsty strands take swigs of top-shelf products at the Color Bar, whose tenders show off their mastery of highlighting techniques and color designs. Cosmetologists also tend to skin and muscles with pick-me-ups such as soothing tea-tree scalp treatments and relaxing manicures and pedicures. Makeup applications revivify complexions, and a warm bath of wax washes away unwanted fuzz on lips, brows, and chins.
For licensed massage therapist Christine Abston, relaxation is more than a quick fix. It's a way of life. That’s why she gives clients multiple ways to unwind at Catch Your Breath Massage, pulling from 17 massage modalities picked up over her 15-year career. Her sessions range from soothing Swedish strokes and reflexology techniques to deep-tissue and trigger-point therapies that address lower-layer muscle pain. Appointments take place within Christine’s cozy, candlelit studio or onsite at a loved one’s home or a crossing guard’s favored intersection.
A duo of renowned artists decorate skin at Eddy Lee's Tattoo Art Gallery: Eddy Lee, who specializes in realism and new-school Japanese design, and JoJo Miller, a body-art consultant for a slew of well-known bands. In addition to ink, artists also adorn their clients with body piercings.
The seven-person team of tattoo and piercing artists at Highland's Finest Tattoos couples custom illustrations with rigorous health and cleanliness standards, with the goal of giving each client a piece of art they'll cherish throughout their lives.
