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.

Scott Sachnoff's passion for hair color began 20 years ago in Santa Barbara, California, where he began his career by assisting a head colorist for Schwarzkopf. It took a move to New York City to fully catapult him into the high-fashion world of hairstyling, however, and a stint spent training with Redken soon found him ascending to assume the title of Master Hair Colorist. While his time in the Big Apple earned him a loyal customer base, Scott soon caught the traveling bug again, relocating this time to Texas to establish his own salon and a reputation among the state's politicians, professionals, and celebrity line dancers. Today, he credits Austin's vibrant streets and nightlife with inspiring his signature cut and color treatments, which he creates using low-ammonia formulas by Italian color line Framesi.
