Roots This 20-chair space is simple, chic, modern, and airy. Stress-relief is a theme here and the natural maple floors, warm buttery walls, and light fragrance in the air all help to do the trick.
Highlights “Some of what we do best includes soft geometric cuts that make your hair naturally fall into place, even when you style it yourself at home,” says Mark Gagliardi, co-owner and stylist.
Cutting Edge Request a bob with weightless bangs (à la the sisters Kardashian) and your sleek, shoulder-length cut will quite possibly be the most flattering you’ve ever had.
Color Code Clients go to Eclipse for spot-on highlights, balayage, and fashion colors. The salon’s newest technique is called Eclipting (get it?), which involves illuminating and framing the face with contouring. “We help enhance the interplay of shadow and light,” says Gagliardi. “Like an eclipse reframes the sun and moon.”
Star Stylist/Colorist “All of our stylists and colorists receive extensive training in the Eclipse philosophy, from the consultation at the beginning to the service itself,” says Gagliardi. “We believe that it’s important for our clients to feel good on the inside when they leave and not just on the outside when they look in the mirror.”
Gloss All cutting services include a scalp massage, a hand massage using Aveda hand relief products, or a makeup touch-up. Clients 65+, college students, and military personnel receive a 10-percent discount. There is also a referral-program discount.
Heads Up “We just started offering custom spray-tanning,” says Gagliardi. “We’re really excited about it.”
