Hairstyling visionaries Wade Zylstra and James Cook preside over three levels of cranial artisans who administer cuts and specialized treatments, and educate clients about haircare, recommending Aveda home-care products to maintain their new looks.

Evolve Salon and Style Lounge's owner, Tiffany Walker, will tell you that she was raised in the beauty industry. Her mom owned a salon, and at aged 7, Tiffany vowed that she would one day do the same. Today, she thrives at the helm of Evolve Salon and Style Lounge, a modern beauty haven whose bright and fun ambiance is brought to fruition with oversize mirrors, a black-and-white mural of Marilyn Monroe, and a sleek chandelier.
Within these voguish digs, Tiffany and her team consider clients' lifestyles, personalities, and styles before they cut, style, or color their hair. In addition to gussying up manes, the team provides services that run the gamut from airbrush tanning to 30- to 40-minute express services, such as mini facials and Shellac manicures. After appointments, clients can rummage through the salon's stock of professional products, including Aveda, Redken, and L'Or?al Professionnel.
The staff also helps transform brides and their wedding parties with bridal services that include hair, makeup, and eyelash applications. Because the staff has beautified women for hundreds of weddings, brides don't have to stress about the process. Stylists can arrive to do hair and makeup onsite at the chapel, hotel, or space station; alternately, bridal parties can relax while they enjoy breakfast and champagne in the salon.
Giti and her team at Giti Salon and Spa pool a total of 75 years of experience as they craft dos with stylish haircuts, multidimensional color, and face-framing highlights. Their speciality, however, is applying elongating Great Lengths human-hair extensions via numerous methods. In addition to tending to tresses, her team members offer skin, nail, and hair-removal services and apply makeup to compliment updos for sophisticated events or parties held in zero gravity.
Bigger is not always better. Within Glo Salon?s intimate space, the stylists, aestheticians, tanning experts, and nail technicians don't only work to beautify clients?they also get to know them. The team takes pride in the personal care and attention their space allows them to give each client, and that translates into creating the best looks for customers' unique features and styles. A seemingly book-long menu of services includes an array of facial, waxing, tanning, makeup, and hair treatments, all catered to individual needs. Whether undergoing a Japanese hair-straightening treatment, a revitalizing facial with extractions, or a simple bangs trim, patrons depart Glo with a new or updated style created to help them look and feel their best.
A kaleidoscope of nail polishes serves as Rose’s palette when painting nails. She covers fingernails and toenails in a monochromatic hue or uses a steady hand to paint such artistic touches as Fourth of July-themed stars or tax day-themed W-2 forms. The clients’ choice of gel polish—which protects against chips for up to two weeks—isn’t the only customizable feature of the mani-pedi treatment. Rose also rounds tips, squares them off, and files them into points.
