A lifelong resident of Alaska, Rachael Sanger pairs her fondness for the local community with a firm grasp of the fashion world’s latest trends. Since taking over as the owner of Organic Hair Design in 2010, she has carried on the salon’s tradition of stocking only organic products that enhance beauty without harming animals or the environment. Along with stylist Kenna Jo Bushey, Rachael colors hair with PETA-approved vegan treatments and moisturizes thirsty stands with eco-friendly deep conditioners. Elizabeth Field, the salon’s resident aesthetician, shares the stylists’ fascination with organic blends. Her waxing treatments remove unwanted tufts on the face and body, and her custom facials imbue complexions with a glow strong enough to keep them toasty through the winter months.
Sabrina Kern—artistic director or Salon Demetri—doesn't want her clients to feel trapped by the natural state of their hair. So she's curated her salon's services to cater to whims of each client, whether they are seeking straight locks, curling tresses, or lightning-shaped pig-tails. Sabrina's team of stylists specialize in Kerapure smoothing treatments, which use amino technology to smooth and straighten hair without the damage of harsh chemicals or the inherent deception of magic. Stylists can also lengthen hair with the salon’s SoCap hair extensions that bond real human hair to your natural strands with keratin-based agents. After redesigning hair into the desired color, cut, or texture, the stylists educate clients in the expert tricks of how to maintain their new look at home and on the go.
In a chic, pink-hued space with natural-wood floors, The Beauty Room's stylists and aestheticians beautify clients with a range of professional skin and haircare treatments. They use brands trusted for their results, including American Crew, Bare Minerals, and Morrocanoil, as well as Bumble and bumble styling products, which are designed to be mixed and layered to create custom hair effects or give house plants more of a punk-rock look. Additional skin services include microdermabrasion, which removes dead skin cells; photo rejuvenation, which diminishes scars and discoloration; and microcurrent treatments, which awaken collagen-producing cells.

Amanda has spent the past 10 years snipping hair, cutting and coloring locks. She works now out of Bloom: A Hair Boutique's airy salon. The space, which is reminiscent of a wide-open dance studio—with its maple-hued hardwood floors and dozens of hanging lights—allows any set of skills to shine. At comfy black spa chairs, Amanda uses Schwarzkopf products to create works of cranial art worthy of the room. Her certification as an extensionist lets her add inches to heads, and her certification as a time traveler allows her to add authentic tricorner hats.
