Greater Cincinnati has a Salon/Spa where everyone in the family can enjoy an indulgent experience without the exclusivity that’s often associated with luxury salons. Both the Hyde Park and Crestview Hills locations are known for being “Best in the City.” Having won many awards, Tanya’s Image & Wellness salon promises the top service throughout the tri-state in an environment that is comfortable and welcoming.

“Even though we are a luxury salon, we make it our mission to be a comfortable and warm salon,” says owner and expert stylist, Tanya Tieman.

“We really want what’s best for each guest that comes in and it’s apparent when you come in and get to know us.”

In the wedding industry, where expectations and emotions can run high, Tanya has made Tanya’s Image & Wellness Salon the go-to destination for taking the tension out of the equation. “Our brides can expect a personal experience that leaves them walking away feeling cared for, pampered and beautiful,” she says.

“We see it as our job as industry experts to educate the brides on all of the things that they don’t think of. Like teaching the maid-of-honor or mom how to take the veil off without ruining the bride’s hair. Another example is as simple as the pictures of the bride and groom’s hands. Brides are always surprised and grateful when we explain the importance of a manicure for the groom.” Tanya recommends the bride and groom get a manicure the day before rehearsal dinner. Tanya also recommends the bride, groom and their parents get a massage to take the tension out of the last-minute running around. Massages are a wonderful way to alleviate the stress, especially during wedding planning.

Tanya’s also relieves some of the wedding day anxiety by bringing brides in to practice their look ahead of time. “We always like to do a trial run about a month before the wedding,” Tanya says. “The bride should have her dress picked out, have the hair ornament that she wants and her veil, so we can customize [her hair and makeup] to look the best with her face shape, dress and theme.” Tanya’s team offers the option of on-site services for brides who prefer to get ready at their venue, but she also touts the advantages of having bridal parties come to the salon. She says, “It’s less stressful as they don’t have to clean up. We have the proper electricity, drinks, herbal teas, gourmet coffee, and multiple service providers that can work on the entire wedding party at once. Having the entire wedding party getting their services done together is not only fun, but also helps with time constraints.”

As a full-service Salon/Spa, Tanya’s Image & Wellness Salon expands beyond the traditional styling processes to make the experience itself as relaxing and flawless as the hair and makeup. “We know how important self-care is to our client’s overall well-being – and, how little time there is in a day to fit self-care in on busy days,” says Tieman. “To inject a bit of self-care into the experience, we include a hot towel on the head during the conditioning process of the shampoo, and while the towel does its magic, we clean rings and give a hand and arm massage.” All of this is included in the shampoo with no extra charge.

To maintain 18 years as a leading salon, Tanya’s also makes growth a priority for every stylist. The on-staff aestheticians and massage therapists are at the top or their field. They all take continuing education classes to stay on top of the latest techniques, like micro blading, facials, lash extensions and specialty massage therapies. These are must-try services for self-care and beauty at Tanya’s.

From the full bar stocked with local beers, top-shelf liquors and organic wines to the most comfortable and luxurious shampoo bowls available in the world, Tanya’s Image & Wellness Salon is a go to destination. Tanya says, “Every little detail is designed to make clients realize how special and important they are.”

Tanya and her team strive to make every guest that comes in to the salon feel at home, cared for and pampered. “We want to be the place you come to relax and escape – while creating the best hair, makeup, skin care, and massage services in the tri-state.” When you leave you should look and feel your best!
