5 Diamond Salon Makes Every Client Shine With Extra Pampering

By Pamela Sosnowski

At 5 Diamond Salon in Manchester, it's the little touches of hospitality when getting a haircut or coloring treatment that help their clients truly feel valued. "We have special shampoo sinks that allow us to give you a complimentary head massage during your shampoo without any neck strain," says the salon's owner, Samantha Courtois.

"We recently added a fireplace so you can relax near the warm ambiance with a nice glass of wine, or a warm cup of tea or coffee while your color processes. Its the small things like these that guests appreciate and allow them to truly relax and know they are in good hands."

Maybe that's why the salon has been voted the best salon in Manchester two years in a row now by the readers of Hippo Press magazine, or why its staff has been hired to work on fashion shows, magazine shoots, with celebrities, and even several presidential candidates earlier this year for a television appearance on Face The Nation.

Courtois describes her establishment as a "full service salon, barber shop, and mini spa", and her two newest staff members have over 40 years of combined experience in women's beauty treatments.

5 Diamond Salon offers all kinds of beauty services including haircuts, blowdrying, coloring, extensions, updos, makeup application, and more. Waxing, facial treatments, hand massages, and even botox injections are offered. Men's services include haircuts, hair coloring, and beard shaping.

Coutois has been a master hair stylist for 7 years, and a makeup artist for 11 with specialties in coloring, extensions, and bridal hair and makeup. She won the Paul Mitchell Fantasy Hair Competition in 2012 and has traveled all over the country to work on photo shoots and to also learn the latest hairstyle and makeup trends.

That hands-on continuing education is practiced by her entire staff as well. "5 Diamond Salon knows how important education is to provide our guests with outstanding results," explains Coutois. "The staff has traveled around the country and even to Europe to receive first-rate knowledge from the best professionals in the beauty and health industry. We work closely with the Brands we use to make sure we are up to date on all of the newest trends and an provide our guests with top notch service and teach our guests how to be successful in styling at their own home."

One of the latest innovations the salon is now offering is called Olaplex, a treatment that protects hair while processing and actually bonds to individual strands to repair chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage. Olaplex can be used alone to restore damaged hair, or in conjunction with coloring or another treatment to provide breakage insurance.

The salon is now accepting walk-in clients, and says that all of its hair services come with a complimentary 5-minute scalp massage. It's just another perk that attests to that little extra bit of pampering that its clients deserve. "What other extras do we offer?" asks Coutois. "Well, you will have to visit us to see!"
