Changes’ stylists are like fairy godmothers for hair. With a wave of their scissors they transform clients’ overgrown coifs into curls, waves, and bangs so they can woo their Prince Charming or give the birds who dress them a place to sleep. The team’s changes can be subtle or dramatic—from precision cuts that accentuate clients’ bone structure, to hair extensions that add shampoo-commercial flippability, to keratin smoothing treatments that leave manes with a whole new texture. A Wolff tanning bed completes makeovers with 15-minute sessions that shade skin to a golden bronze, helping fingers and toes stand out after brightening with gel polish or acrylic nails.
The studio space itself seems to be a force that engenders metamorphoses. Lime-green and stone walls recall the refreshing calm of a garden—a notion supported by potted plants and a quartet of paintings that depict a tree budding and losing leaves through the seasons.
