The low hum of blow dryers fills the air as the six stylists at ForeverAK Studio cut, color, and coif hair with Paul Mitchell and KMS California products. The modern design of the salon, with glossy hardwood floors, exposed-brick accents warming the clean white walls, and neon-green baseboards, complements the modern cuts and latest color treatments. The salon also offers spa services such as anti-aging facials and hot-stone massages, and has iPads available for clients to use while they wait.
Upon entering the Foofaraw Hair Productions studio, visitors may feel as though they've stumbled into a rustic cottage rather than a hair salon. The morning sun streams in through tulle curtains, spotlighting hardwood floors, cushy armchairs, and a tailor's dress form. Senior stylist Randon Flood stands at an antique armoire, sorting through his collection of Moroccanoil products, styling tools, and enchanted singing combs as he prepares for a day of cutting, coloring, and styling hair.
Hair Science's stylists transform men's looks with expert cutting and styling. They specialize in bald fades, tapers, low fades, designs, mohawks, and razor lineups.

Cura Novo proprietor Natha Thompson beautifies faces and bodies in tranquil, private settings at both D'Vons Salon & Day Spa in Eagle River and Envy Salon Studio in Wasilla. Using all-natural Cosmedix products, she can work to correct brown spots and other skin complaints or perform soothing relaxation facials. She can also add lash extensions one by one to enhance eyes, or keep their skin surfaces smooth via waxing treatments.
An independent stylist, Yvette Blezinski employs 14 years of experience and uses products by Natural Euphoria, Redken, and Shwarzkopf while snipping and styling the tresses of women and men. Prior to haircut services, Yvette navigates her fingertips through manes, relieving tension with a gentle massage. Afterward, the stylist re-arms herself with scissors or gardening shears, trimming and sculpting tresses in a way that suits the individual or topiary. Partial highlights vivify select strands, and full-color treatments dress entire 'dos in select pigments. For soft, shiny locks, Brazilian blowouts hydrate frizz-prone hair, and Moroccanoil deep-conditioning treatments hydrate hair shafts and prevent cuticles from becoming desiccated or sprouting cacti.
