Styling Company closes a little early every other Wednesday—but it's not so stylists have more time for relaxation and water-balloon fights. Rather, it's so they can exchange new styling ideas and study the latest fashion techniques. The dedicated specialists attend external beauty classes regularly, determined to stay on top of the latest haircutting, balayage, and hair-extension techniques. They operate out of a chic salon with swanky decor, art-speckled walls, and plush waiting-area sofas.
A trained aesthetician for nearly a decade, Jamila has created her own line of products—Jamila Skincare—that she currently uses in her work at Trimz Hair Salon. Guided by the education she received from the Concorde school, she's a strong supporter of regular facial treatments coupled with daily hydration in order to keep skin smooth and looking its youngest without crayon tattoos. To this end, her products, such as mud masks, eschew sulfur in favor of earth minerals and arctic clay. Her products include brow makeup and skincare ointments, crafted from botanical ingredients.
Gilded mirrors punctuate walls the color of honey at Bella Chic Studio. It's this warm, tranquil scene that welcomes guests, who take a seat on the sofa while awaiting treatments. Once in the styling chair, mani-pedi station, or treatment room, the beautification begins: facials, waxing, and haircare gussy up visitors from follicle to stiletto.

Though Salon at the Station has a warm, small-town atmosphere, its hairdressers deliver big-city hairstyles. Owner Karen Kowitski helms a team of experienced stylists well-versed in metropolitan cuts, colors, and styles. As a L’Oreal Professional salon, Salon at the Station boasts coloring services that can lighten, darken, or tie-dye hair with the use of L’Oreal ammonia-free hair color. The versatile staff can also meticulously groom nails, wax off unwanted hair, and airbrush tans on winter-pale skin.
The stylists at Serenity Hair Lounge are big fans of a fashionable contradiction. Inside their appointed workspace, rustic wood floors and muted, faux-marbled walls provide a chic contrast to the polished hairstyles and vibrant hair colors that parade out the door. To really make manes shine though, stylists can tame unruly frizz with a Brazilian blowout that leaves locks smooth, soft, and less likely to attach itself to dryer sheets.
