After rubbing elbows with talented experts, Krista Curry became the creative director of Textures Salon. Now she pours 20 years of experience into her team of stylists, who sculpt tresses with products by Redken and American Crew. Before beginning any of their services––which range from cuts and color to keratin treatments and bridal up-dos––they welcome men, women, and children into their orange, box-shaped styling chairs and warn them not to touch the shiny red eject button.
Mane Tamers' hair aficionados have treated stressed tresses with a combination of aesthetic and pampering services for more than a quarter-century. During a thorough headscaping, male and female follicles undergo a scalp-massaging shampoo, which soothes strands while convincing them to confide world-domination schemes and aesthetic ambitions. Then stylists cut cranial carpet to specifications ($35 women/$25 men) before gifting scalps a deep-conditioning treatment ($25) to help imbue locks with a healthy sheen. For women, the one-hour salon stay concludes with an eyebrow shaping ($13), where facial terraformers sculpt eye adornments in accentuating arches, dashes, or lightning bolts. Meanwhile, a grooming package shears ($13) male facial manes to appropriate lengths. Mane Tamers makes up the haircut cost difference with a $10 gift card for the next manly follicle feng shui session.
