Peggy Poveda-Sipe's mother was a hairstylist, so her childhood was set to a soundtrack of whirring hairdryers, snipping scissors, and split ends vanishing with tiny pops. She followed in her family's career footsteps, and today treats patrons of Level 5 Salon to haircuts and color treatments. A proud possessor of curly hair, she specializes in bringing out the best in the unique texture and teaches her clients how to maintain their new salon look at home. Peggy also excels in creating updos—in fact, she took home the prize at an international updo styling competition. But she's dedicated to education just as much as she is to beauty, and frequently attends classes to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and coloring techniques.
The staff of Radiant Concepts Hair Salon didn't just move into a new building—they gutted the original place and rebuilt everything from scratch, infusing the space with a fresh, modern vibe that reflects their work as stylists. Once the arabesque wallpaper was up and the last bulb of the blossoming orb chandelier was screwed in, they got to work cutting, coloring, and straightening hair on women and men of all ages. They also compliment their hair-based masterpieces with traditional and airbrush makeup applications.
Sunlight streams in through the giant windows, illuminating expert stylists as they diligently evict split ends from hairstyles. The stylists offer a variety of services which they perform using expert products. They specialize in chemical and thermal hair straightening and perform aesthetic services as well, such as makeup application, facials, and eyelash enhancements.
Jorge and Jessica opened Antidote Salon in 2009, combining his hair-cutting skills and her make-up artistry to cure their clients of tired styles. Today their salon is known for its emphasis on customer service, its wide range of skin treatments, and for being part of the Aveda network of salons. But Jorge and Jessica's main focus has always been on their clients. Every visit to the salon side starts with an in-depth consultation about the client's needs and lifestyle to create just the right look. Throughout the salon, the team designs new 'dos and treats skin solely with Aveda products that are as friendly to the environment as a venture capitalist who just found out leaves are worth their weight in gold.
