Industrie Hairdressing founders Holly Tignor and Mary Cahill Garrard are a natural match. Aside from having similar career trajectories—they each got their starts in the early 90s before developing their skills on the artistic team at U.K.-based Toni&Guy—the two share an ambitious streak that led them to establish Creating Beauty, a three-tiered company that consists of two concept salons and a hairdressing academy.
At Industrie Hairdressing, the idea is to draw inspiration from all forms of art and design using an approach to styling that's as freeform as the episode of Jeopardy! where Alex Trebek had to improvise all the clues. During sessions, stylists grouped into five levels based on experience and education consult with their clients to create styles that best suit the client's lifestyle and face shape. They do this by drawing on a full line of Bumble and Bumble products.
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.
Board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, Dr. Lawrence Janowski of Sonata Laser Aesthetics smoothes aging faces with Botox treatments. The doctor injects the FDA-approved medicine directly into facial muscles to impede the nerve impulses responsible for the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, and railroad lines impeding the visage from achieving maximum attractiveness. Twenty units generally treat one area and help to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines between the brows in clients aged 18–65, while other areas may require additional units ($10/unit). The de-wrinkling effects of the quick noninvasive treatment begin to kick in a few days after the injections take place and typically last three–six months, or the average gestation period of the lesser-horned newt.

The first things that come to the average adult’s mind when thinking of fun children’s activities are most likely ball pits, bounce houses, video games, and singing animatronic animals. The staffers at Flutter: A Day Spa & Salon for Kids, however, conjure an entirely different list—they think of massages, facials, hair styling sessions, and makeovers. These trained spa professionals customize grown-up beauty services such as these to suit the needs of a younger generation, giving 12–15 year-old boys and girls a unique and fun way to enjoy an afternoon or birthday party.
Tucked inside Salon Republic, the team uses 100% organic ingredients to perform safe nail, skin, and body treatments. A dessert-inspired pedicure refreshes little toes with a fizz soak and foot mask, and a teen facial designed for 12-15 year-old clients aims to control acne with deep cleansings, extractions, and stern threats of detention. The staff can also adorn youngsters with mineral makeup, temporary tattoos, and a range of hairstyles that includes everything from up-dos to mohawks.
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.
