Having owned and operated nine different salons, Cheri Pennetta recognizes the importance of taking the needs of each client on a case-by-case basis. Whether those clients arrive at Rock N Roll 56 Salon & Spa looking for a quick fix—or a full-blown makeover—Cheri snips, sprays, and colors accordingly. For hair, Cheri spruces up locks with cuts, blowouts and extensions, and for everything else, she offers specialty services, including spray tans, waxing, and lash upgrades.
Not everyone can brush the tangles from their own hair, let alone style it. That's why Perfecta Salon & Spa employs a team of stylists who are experts in the intricacies of hair––everything from thickness and texture to color and astrological sign. In the comfort of the cozy studio, clients can request face-flattering layers, or rewire their head's circuit boards with bold highlights.
Leather chairs, marble floors, and exposed ceilings blanket visitors as they enter All About You, an Elite L'Oréal Professionnel exclusive salon. Lauren Johnson and Amy Antoine, the duo of stylists that oversees these confines, carry experience as long as their most infrequent clients' hair. Lauren studied at The Salon Professional Academy, endorsed by Redken, whereas Amy has worked within the beauty industry for more than 20 years. Drawing from these backgrounds, they snip cuts, apply color, and add feather extensions. Other services include specialized L'Oréal treatments, such as a Fiberceutic deep-conditioning product that strengthens hair.
Beauty by Brit is a private full-service salon within Phenix Salon Suites. Unable to imagine herself doing any other job, hairstylist Brittany Miller loves working with hair and provides haircuts and rich color and conditioning treatments with Redken products. In her intimate salon space, she shows an expert hand with everything from men's haircuts to sun-kissed highlights streaked into locks.
A portrait of Audrey Hepburn throwing a flirtatious look over her shoulder sets the scene in this two-chair suite, where stylist Mary Boswell aims to make every client feel like a star. In character as Holly Golightly, Hepburn appears with the iconic chignon and highlights—a look Mary herself can replicate with updos and color treatments.

Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I tactfully guide them to a choice that will flatter them more, maybe using some of the elements they like about the other style.
For many people, a trip to the salon is a way to enjoy some "me time." What supplemental courtesies do you offer to make guests feel relaxed?
I offer my clients cold drinks, and I can also do makeup, mani-pedis, and scalp massages if they schedule them in advance.
