Linda Machalicek opened Dolce Organic Salon in September 2008 after a life-threatening battle with pancreatic cancer. She developed a genuine interest in new and ancient organic and holistic approaches to beauty during her illness.
“I wanted to open a salon that would offer others seeking a healthier more organic lifestyle a way to integrate that into their beauty regiment,” Linda explains. “The best thing about our hair color is what we leave out!” Now you no longer need to use hair color products that contain ammonia.
Oway color (short for Organic Way) is the world’s first professional hair color formulated with the highest concentration of organic, biodynamic, and fair trade ingredients. Ingredients include Perilla, cotton, dates, hibiscus, jojoba, and wheat, all of which are grown on family farms in Bologna, Italy. Clients with ultra sensitive skin love Oway, as it has no smell and does not cause tingling or itching. As artists, our stylists love that it comes in 95 different shades that they can mix and match to create a custom color for every client and their unique skin tone. Oway is the most luxurious color line out there.
The nail products we use are the first vegan family of DBP, formaldehyde and tuluene-free nail laquers. You will experience tranquility when you enter this beautiful, luxurious odor-free environment.
In 2018, Dolce relocated to Middleburg Heights in order to expand their facility to include a med spa, salt room & infrared sauna.
The welcoming lounge is equal parts breathtaking and homey, like a living room on a magazine cover. Surrounded by cascading waterfall fountains, the roaring alabaster stacked stone fireplace beckons you to cozy up on the leather furniture.
Clients can dabble in an extensive array of spa services, from facials and massage to visits to the European infrared sauna and salt room.
“The team of estheticians and massotherapists I’ve put together is amazingly talented,” says Linda.
Additional beautification and detox services range from dry brushing to electrolysis and waxing. For skin, the spa offers cutting-edge anti-aging modalities, such as microchanneling with stem cell serum, and the hydroplus facial, which sloughs off the outer layer of dead cells with a diamond-tipped wand and infuses skin with targeted serums.
“We have also introduced Celluma LED Light Therapy, an innovative facial treatment that reduces wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, smooths the skin’s surface and re-energizes natural cell function,” she says. “The healing energy works safely and gently on acne-prone skin as well since it reduces bacterial buildup. Investing in this technology is worth it, as the results are gorgeous.”
To take beauty treatments to the next level, Dolce’s Nurse Practitioner, Janette Vodhanel, specializes in a host of esthetic & laser services, including injectables and Botox.
Dolce Med Spa, Organic Salon & Salt Room is located on Bagley Road in Middleburg Heights – on the North side of the street – across from SouthWest General Hospital.
