Inside Sana Beauty Salon, Sana Shaheen beautifies clients with methods old and new. She adorns hands, arms, and feet with intricate henna tattoos, which originated thousands of years ago, and employs the ancient art of threading to remove unwanted facial hair. For men's and women's physiques, however, Sana uses tried and true warm wax. The salon owner also embraces newer techniques, such as keratin, microdermabrasion, and electrolysis treatments. In addition, she cleanses complexions with facials and applies eye-enhancing Lavish Lashes eyelash extensions, which are particularly advantageous during speed eyelash-batting competitions.
The stylists at Dreamzz Hair Collection specialize in transforming hair of any texture into soft, silky curls or sleek, shiny tresses. They banish frizz with smoothing and silkening treatments, and straighten tightly wound strands with an array of relaxers. For a new look or added length and volume, they pump up manes with quick weaves as well as the sew-in and partial-sew-in varieties. Stylists also perform cuts, coloring, and highlights with Redken and Nairobi haircare products in hand, and enhance eyes with lash extensions and eyebrow waxing. To further heighten the pampering experience, they offer complimentary wine and cheese.

Fifteen years ago, Zetta Steele founded Steele Cutz Salon—so in that way, it’s aptly named. However, its name is also misleading, in that the salon’s stylists do far more than just cut hair. They enhance hair color with highlights, all-over color, and colored glazes. They add length to locks with extensions. And they straighten curly hair with Brazilian Blowouts. This strand smoothing service can also make hair more manageable and less frizzy, which will stop people from asking to see your static electricity globe collection.
