Hair Xtraordinare?s Cheyenne Wright molds her clients? hair with products by Tigi, Sexy Hair, and Redken. Cheyenne displays her knack for coifs, rendering cuts, partial highlights, full highlights, and toner treatments. Nestled in their own little nook, Cheyenne and her fellow stylists craft new looks against a red-wall backdrop, which supports a decorative pair of giant scissors. Her salon also features a stately wooden reception desk and a waiting room with gray-green walls that recite the words, "fashions fade, style is eternal" near a swirling-wire wall ornament. Wicker chairs and magazines cozy up next to a stone fireplace with a snowman in between to prevent fires, and white shelves support rows of colorful bottles.
Inside the laid-back neighborhood salon, experienced stylists chat with regulars while styling their 'dos with Schwarzkopf, White Sands, and Alterna Bamboo products. The young team prioritizes keeping up with the latest industry and Hollywood trends, such as keratin straightening treatments and OPI Axxium gel mani-pedis. A certified massage therapist complements the salon's trendy services with treatments as relaxing as napping in a hammock in a candle store. The bright, minimal space makes small details, such as a fireplace, gilt-framed mirrors, and cool-toned accent walls, pop.
When Lamar Hair Studio first opened its doors, clients were mostly likely requesting beehives, or, if they were a bit younger, perhaps short mod styles. The salon's been operating since the Johnson administration, and nearly a half-century later, it’s transformed its classic approach into one focused more on modern, fashion-forward styles. Clients can still stop in for a timeless look or a formal updo, but the stylists also flaunt a knack for sculpting asymmetrical shapes, adding funky streaks of color, and performing cutting-edge texture treatments.
Nestled inside Eclipse Salon Suites, Just Teasin' Hair Studio owner Leanne Hawley pulls from American Crew styling products and tea-tree shampoos to update 'dos for men, women, and children. After getting to know her clients and determining their style and preferences, she deftly snips locks to flatter each face. In addition to cutting coifs, Leanne also douses strands with a fresh coat of color or adds dimension and depth with highlights, lowlights, and black lights.
As the owner and head stylist of Cabaret Hair Studio, Valerie Holstege draws on more than 30 years of experience to cut, color, and curl locks. The industry veteran creates styles that leave her clients looking and feeling their best, whether they’re a woman, a man, or a man-child recently acclimatized to the demands of civilization.
