As the owners of The Art of Hair Salon, Hanh Tran and David LouSana share two concerns: helping their clients to progress in terms of beauty, and helping their stylists to progress in terms of knowledge. On most Mondays, Tran leads in-house classes that equip the salon's stylists with new skills and advanced techniques. The rest of the week is the stylists' proving ground, and they rise to their mentor's challenge by deftly chopping split ends, transforming hair color, and adding extra length with So.Cap. hair extensions. During these treatments—each of which includes a blow-dry and style—they rely on 100% certified organic hair color and products from Keratin+.
Not to be outdone, the salon's aestheticians wax away facial hair and enhance features with professional makeup applications. They tailor their treatments to individual clients, working with them to add seductive shades to eyelids and seductive mustaches to upper lips.
Co-owners Michelle and Celeste, whose friendship began when their sons played basketball together, decided to open Blinq Lash & Brow Boutique after discovering a shared interest in cosmetology. The boutique specializes in eyelash and eyebrow enhancements, including threading, tinting, and three levels of eyelash extensions meticulously applied one synthetic lash at a time. Each of Blinq’s licensed aestheticians and cosmetologists undergoes extensive training in lash- and brow-sculpting techniques to create eyes that can hail a cab with a single wink. The contemporary salon exudes feminine grace with its soft beige walls, scintillating chandelier, and small alcove of boutique clothing and accessories.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
Ultra Tan's staff makes sure its clients maintain a healthy glow, year-round. They offer a variety of high-pressure tanning beds, as well as UV-free airbrush spray tanning. Customized to each client, spray tans are available in varying shades for a deep, streak-free, and even bronze. Ultra Tan also offers FDA-approved red light therapy, which can help reduce signs of aging, acne scarring, and too many years of hanging out under black lights.
