1 Rolf's Salon
Rolf's has four locations throughout the Valley, but the flagship salon at Gainey Village is the company's crown jewel. The stylists at this super-luxe salon are extremely attentive, catering to clients' every need -- bringing them water and refreshments and discussing style options in detail before picking up the shears. The huge salon is a delight to experience, oozing with European elegance in cream-colored tones, exquisite lighting, very comfy shampoo and treatment stations and highly professional stylists using today's state-of-the-art tools. Plus, the salon stocks products by some of the world's premier haircare and skincare lines, including Kerastase Paris. In fact, the salon just launched a new Kerastase treatment, the ultra-moisturizing Chronologiste Treatment for hair. Rolf's provides a full range of salon and day spa services in addition to hair, including waxing, nails, makeup and facials.
2 Green With Envy Organic Hair Studio
A completely non-toxic and clean-air salon, Green With Envy is housed in a space that makes clients feel like they're being pampered and close to nature all at once. The stylists don't use any products containing harsh chemicals, and the salon caters to those who aspire to, or already enjoy, a green lifestyle. Boasting an off-white decor with elegant dark-wood trim and occasional bursts of bright green and other fun colors, the space was designed by a LEED-certified architect. The salon features VOC-free paint, recycled insulation, no aerosol sprays and a number of other eco-friendly elements. Green With Envy even donates hair clippings to a nonprofit organization that uses them to create mats to help clean up oil spills. The staff offers a full range of hair services for both men and women. Product lines include John Masters Organics.
3 Steven Paul Salon
Located in the center of Old Town, Steven Paul Salon spares no indulgences when it comes to offering salon-goers the very best in services and overall experience. Decorated with an artistically painted ceiling, tasteful antiques and other ornate objects, the salon provides plenty of beauty for clients to look upon while treating themselves to one of Steven Paul's services, including hair care, nail care, massage, waxing, facials, tinting, body treatments and more. The salon also offers tanning, as well as other aesthetic treatments, including laser hair removal, Botox treatments and lip enhancement. Check their site for the full rundown on all they can provide you. Attached to the salon are also the Bizaar Bazaar and Terrace Cafe, two spots that are perfect to spend time in before or after your appointments, or any time.
4 Altered Ego Salon
The experts at Altered Ego use such top-notch brands as Aveda, Matrix, OPI, MoroccanOil and others, and can handle all your beauty situations - everything from skin care and spray tan to body treatments and makeup to permanent cosmetics, waxing and nails. Located next to the adorable Solo Cafe coffee shop, the salon features rooms all decorated a little different - but all precious - that make you feel as though you've stumbled into a posh boutique resort, rather than into a standalone salon. Open seven days a week, the salon is particularly proud of its wonderful hair extension service, which includes a free consultation.
5 Ohana Salon & Spa
Also located in Old Town, Aveda concept salon Ohana is very young, fresh and contemporary, with their list of hair services including cuts and styling, extensions, coloring, texture control, health and shine conditioning treatments and special occasion. Haircut appointments include a stress-relieving neck and shoulder massage and a "stress-relieving sensory journey." The salon is equally attentive when it comes to the rest of your body, however, and offers the works: nail services, facials, body wraps, a full range of waxing services, makeup and massage. And don't think they've forgotten the boys - there are plenty of treatments designed especially for men on their menu.
