Hairstylist Chadd Jonesmith started tending tresses 18 years ago at Van Michael Salon. Two salons later, he opened ? La Mode, which is French for "in fashion," not "ice cream hairdo". His team of stylists live up to this name by drawing on their knowledge as educators and platform artists. A student of Vidal Sassoon, Chadd sets a good example for them by teaching for Kevin Murphy?a famous hairstylist who worked on Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge. He also brought his color bar out into the open to create a more social environment where clients could have their new tints applied and talk casually among themselves. A La Mode Salon is now an Aveda Concept Salon.
At Bennett Street Salon and Spa, experienced stylists cater to women and men with a variety of hair services. They offer stylish haircuts with extras such as shampooing, deep conditioning, single-process color, and highlights. They also offer custom wig styling, weaves and extensions, and straightening treatments. Customers also will find other spa services such as massage, waxing, and body wraps.
Hollywood Elite Hair Salon upgrades bland strands with confident layers and bold highlights by Paul Mitchell. Restorative conditioning treatments segue into expert brow shaping, lash extensions, and personalized airbrush-makeup consultations. Though the salon specializes in ethnic hair, the talented staff is also adept at handling hair of all textures, thicknesses, and peanut-butter preferences.
Hairstylist Kris Lawler and Robin Boyar have honed their approach over several decades, and for the last two of these, they've been the proud owners of Studio 305. Inside the clean, modern salon, they lead a team of experienced stylists and color technicians as they transform hair with color and styling products, or buff and polish nails during mani-pedis. Redken, Moroccan Oil, and Pureology products aid them in their quest to tame hair and throw off the scent of any roaming hair collectors. Though the pair always aims to make folks feel pretty, that mission is particularly important to them when offering pro-bono services to victims of domestic violence.
"As artists," writes Helmet founder Randy Addison, "we wouldn't want to sculpt something only to have someone else paint it." This sums up the salon's start-to-finish approach to salon treatments?the stylists and colorists are one and the same. They transform clients' manes in a laid-back, welcoming environment that allows the staff to focus solely on creating flattering coiffures tailored to the needs of the head on which they rest. Armed with products from Aveda and Bumble and bumble, they snip, shape, blow-out, and color locks with aplomb. The team views each hairstyle as a collaboration between patron and stylist, brought to life through the latter's vision, skill, and shears, and the former's personality, features, and ability to sit still in a chair.
