Color is important to HairWaves' staff. It's evident in the head-turning turquoise floor, orange walls, and ochre styling chairs of their salon. It makes sense, too, since the stylists specialize in color, as well as highlights and mani-pedis that put nails through a kaleidoscopic transformation with a buffing, sculpting, and polish. Amid the retro colors of their space, they work on occasion updos as well as Japanese straightening treatments where they saturate hair with a chemical relaxing formula and then treat it with flat irons. The staff also cuts and styles men's and kids' hair and wield wax to remove hair from lips, legs, or gross peaches.
