A new season ALWAYS means new hair, am I right? Many of our locals and returning visitors find Sharmaine's Salon & Day Spa their go-to when exploring new hair colors and styles throughout the year. With their progressing renovations, they're bound to wow you with a simple peek in the door. This all equipped beautification station is a full-service hair salon and day spa, located in the heart of our ravishing island. They specialize in advanced color & design techniques. Other specialty hair services include, Keratin straightening treatments and Great Lengths hair extensions. Restorative day spa services include massage, facials, make up and a full menu of nail salon services.

What makes Sharmaine's so exclusive, you ask? Sharmaine's Salon & Day Spa is a proud Redken Elite Salon. They are one of only 200 plus salons in the country that have achieved this status. Being a member of Redken's Elite Partner program, this salon carries only Redken Color and has the highest expertise in all Redken Color Services. All stylists receive advanced training continuously from Redken. This training includes hands on workshops within the salon, and at the Redken Exchange Academy in NYC. Classes are taught by Nationally & Internationally, recognized Redken Artists.

Aside from providing outstanding services for the past 24 years, this salon is very well known for their chic and elegant furnishings.Their intention is to bring an upscale feel, like you would see in a big city, with small town friendliness. Nothing is more important to them than the comfort & satisfaction of their clients. That is exactly why Sharmaine's has been going through full-fledged renovations these past couple of weeks, to really keep their clientele appeased and on their toes. If you thought this place was stylish before, you won't believe what they have in store for you now! I mean c'mon, what other salon around here has touch screen, light-up mirrors? Perfect selfie lighting, if I could say so myself.(pictured top right)

Although their renovations are not completely finished just yet, be sure to stop in and check out the amazing changes to come. They are breaking records with their 6 day build-out! We are honored to have such outstanding Business Members, such as Sharmaine's, that continuously exceed our local's & visitor's expectations here on Clearwater Beach. Keep an eye out for their grand re-opening! You won't want to miss it. These ladies really know style, people!

P.S. The Clearwater Beach Chalk Art Festival is this Friday-Sunday! Come out and support Your Beach Chamber & experience chalk illustrations from outstanding artists who are on their way to our little beach, from all around the country.
