Having worked as an independent stylist in Silicon Valley for 20 years, Bliss Katopothis has absorbed a library of behind-the-scenes tricks. Rather than hoard them for herself, however, she teaches them to her clients at Scandalous Salon, empowering them to create their own salon-caliber 'dos at home. Her 60-minute lessons each commence with a consultation and shampoo. As Bliss discusses and then observes the patron's standard primping routine, she doles out advice and easy-to-perform techniques that result in a professional look. She also recommends products for specific hair types and fashion goals. By the end of their one-on-one or group appointment, guests can typically replicate their desired style with fresh confidence.

By curating a lengthy list of hair and skin services, the staff at Avalon Salon have found a way to show off their expertise. Stylists add dimension with high- and lowlights, add length with hair extensions, and add shine and volume with blowouts, relying on high-quality products from Redken, Pureology, and Unite. Alongside those stylists, medical aestheticians target skin issues with facials or eliminate unwanted hair with waxing treatments. A selection of treatments lets them target signs of aging, oiliness, dry skin, and a host of other problems, while manicures can bolster both beauty and relaxation.

At LuLu Spa Salon, trained massage therapist Candie Lam uses her hands to dissolve tension and alleviate aches. Skilled in multiple styles of treatment, Candie can utilize deep-tissue-like techniques during bamboo fusion massages, which can be administered while clients relax on a treatment table, sit in an ergonomic massage chair, or run on a treadmill. For those with problems sleeping at night or those suffering from general anxiety, she can also target key muscles that, when combined with light acupressure, help to relieve stress and instill a general sense of calm.

Stylist Nancy Reynolds uses more than her scissors and professional styling products to overhaul dull dos; she uses her eye for facial aesthetics. Before commencing with cuts, color, or keratin smoothing treatments, Reynolds assesses her clients’ facial shape and skin tone, and together they design a cut sculpted to accentuate high cheeks, elongate jaws, or reduce high foreheads. Even with these careful considerations in mind, Reynolds still finds a way to keep the cut easy to maintain, allowing clients to re-create the look at home every morning.
