American Beauty College has been the training ground for tomorrow’s hairstylists, cosmetologists, and estheticians for more than 40 years. Over the years, the school has been training students in the classroom and during hands-on-hands sessions at the school’s on-site salon, where licensed instructors oversee and supervise services administered by developing students. In addition to offering mani-pedis and acrylic nails, the training estheticians and stylists also perform haircuts, styling sessions, color treatments, waxing, and makeup applications.
Using top brands such as Paul Mitchell and Redken, the stylists at Azul Hair Salon create stylish new looks for their customers. Hair care services run the gamut from cuts and color to smoothing treatments and blowouts. They also provide waxing services to rid clients of upper-lip hair that threatens to turn them into the kind of silent movie villains who tie damsels to train tracks.
After five years of rapid growth and a thriving clientele, Tantrum Salon faced a turning point when Tabatha Coffey stepped her signature jet-black boots onto the salon floor. The host of Bravo's Tabatha's Salon Takeover got right to work streamlining their business, highlighting their best stylists, and renovating the space by swapping out the loud yellow wall paint for neutral tones and threadbare curtains for geometric dividers. Now, owner Robert Moreno and his team work together flawlessly to craft face-flattering styles with cuts, color, and other specialty services such as extensions, relaxers, and Brazilian Blowouts, which create smooth, sultry hair better than playing Barry White through a blow dryer.
At Que Bella Aveda Salon, stylists rely on constant communication to understand clients' style goals and build a mutual understanding. When not conversing with stylists, guests can drink Aveda comforting tea. Stylists can transform hair with advanced dual-process colorings, thermal stylings, and Gjarrah keratin treatments. The Que Bella team also performs cosmetic touchups, administers custom aromatherapy, and controls nearby weather systems with their thoughts.
A full-service establishment, Salon Cielo tends to beauty needs from head to toe with trendy haircuts, mani-pedis, and makeup fit for daytime, nighttime, and bedtime. The salon's aestheticians administer facials that treat stubborn acne and wrinkles on clients’ faces, and its massage therapists untie knotted muscles using a variety of kneading techniques and warm stones.
Doris started styling hair when she was 17 years old. Since then, she's worked in various salons. She eventually purchased one of her old haunts in 1998 and named it The Hairem Beauty Salon. That's where she is today—along with her staff of stylists—sculpting tresses with formal updos, perms, and haircuts. She and her staff also boost nails' beauty with gel tips.
