The space at Shears Plus Salon has more color than a box of crayons. Depending on where you look, the walls may be bright red, neon green, or mint. And then there's the hair-washing room, with snow-white molding set against soothing lavender paint. All these jazzy accents remind patrons that the salon is a place of creativity, as well as craftsmanship. Clients can request a traditional wave, a modern pixie cut, or leave it to the stylist's whim for a cut tailored to face shape and personality.
A haircut at Arbor Park Salon is a relaxing experience, from the first sip of a welcome beverage to the warm breeze of the blow-dryer. The staff here stays abreast of the latest trends in the haircare world through continuing education, always ready to devise hip and flattering styles for both women and men. Inside a serene, stripped-down black-and-white salon space, they apply rich color, add edgy layers to razor cuts, and conjure a humidity-proof force field around curls.
For co-owners Catherine Imbesi and Arlene Webber, Salon Ciseaux hasn’t just been a place to use their talents as master stylists: it’s also a place to share their passions with others. For Imbesi, that means showing off her strong work ethic, one she formed when opening her own salon and simultaneously finishing her college degree. Webber, on the other hand, uses her global experiences and people skills to make the salon a welcoming space for clients of different cultures. Together, the curly-haired owners tame tendrils in their certified Ouidad curly-hair-specialist salon and helm a team of stylists who craft new hairdos, remove unwanted hair, and meticulously groom nails. The duo has also shown off their hair skills on the runway, having been handpicked by designer Juan Carlos Obando to style his model’s hair during New York Fashion Week in 2008.
With Keri Diaz, don't expect an over-inflated ego. The talented, dedicated stylist currently operates out of Artistic Hair Care & Design, where she specializes in precision cuts, bold highlights, and blowout styling.

I'm a Paul Mitchell National Educator and hair stylist at Stella Luca salon.
