At Nails on First and Hair 2, patrons have their pick of more than just beautifying services such as highlights, gel manicures, and tanning. That's because the salon doubles as a boutique, selling purses, wallets, and greeting cards. This gives the neighborhood establishment a comfy vibe where patrons can gather to bring out their best appearances, shop for gifts, and compare highlights. And they can also take comfort in the fact that the salon staff averages more than a decade of experience in their respective trades.
As a stylist at Le Charme Salon, Leah Graham tailors haircuts to each individual's personality, crafting everything from colorful, creative cuts to more traditional styles. She enlivens locks with perms, highlights, and multi-color treatments that can convey the client's love of neapolitan ice cream. In addition to her hair services, Graham dolls up countenances with airbrush makeup for weddings and special events.
Kristi Tucker, the resident hair-removal specialist at Lady Locks Salon & Spa, helps clients stay comfortable as she rids bodies and faces of unwanted hair. She boasts three years of Brazilian waxing training, and she is a graduate of the Aveda Institute. Aside from salon services that require Kristi’s waxing prowess, Lady Locks helps clients feel beautiful with haircare, massages, facials, and nonjudgmental magic mirrors.
At Altitude Hair Design, stylists have carved out a serene space for clients to indulge in numerous beauty services. Haircuts for men, women, and children promise a clean, redefined image, and styling and coloring treatments add some pizzazz to every client’s unique look. In addition to hair services, technicians at Altitude also offer facial waxing treatments.
The beauty professionals at Rain Salon upgrade the health and look of skin, hair, and nails. Stylists transform drab hairdos with a pair of shears and then enrich color or modify texture with special formulas that straighten tresses or turn them into slick, wavy lasagna noodles. Aestheticians concentrate on the skin that spans ear to ear, buffing away fine lines during microdermabrasion treatments and replenishing vitamins and moisture during facials. Tending to hands and feet, nail technicians shine up nails with chip-resistant and traditional polishes.
When the stylists at Hair Candy Salon & Spa look at a head of hair, they see nothing but stylish possibilities. Depending on the client, they might add streams of color with partial highlights, lengthen hair with extensions, or use keratin treatments to tame frizz and curls. Stylist Leslie Rosenau is one of these talented stylists, and is also a certified Redken specialist with extensive knowledge of the hair brand's color and styling product lines.
On the spa side, the team also helps nourish their clients' skin with more than a dozen facial treatments, including a therapeutic pumpkin mask with the same nutrients that keep jack-o'-lanterns from ever getting pimples.
FDA-approved lasers are also a fixture here, used to prevent and reverse hair loss.
