Stylists have good reason to stick around The Salon By David and William. If they gain enough experience, they can move up the ranks from junior to senior to master stylist. It’s one way the salon retains its most promising talent, who together make up perhaps the most essential component in the salon’s ability to create contemporary looks. The stylists can attach extensions to make hair longer and fuller, or they can add a permanent wave that subtly appeals to surfers in landlocked countries. Elsewhere in the salon, beauty pros smooth out skin with waxing treatments and reduce the appearance of cellulite with toning body wraps, and massage therapists work through tension and alleviate chronic pain with Swedish or deep-tissue massages.
Addy first became fascinated with eyelashes on a trip to Vietnam, when she encountered a number of women who possessed long, luxurious lashes. After falling in love with the look of lush lashes, she decided to open Eye Love Lash & Nail Studio. Today, Addy calls upon five years of experience as she applies partial or full sets of faux lashes to individual, natural lashes. Sets range from the cat-eye look—with lashes applied only in corners of the eyes—to dramatic, all-encompassing bridal looks. Addy also offers a slew of nailcare services enhanced by sugar scrubs, light massages, and organic shea butter.
At The Lashe Spot, a team of highly skilled eyelash technicians led by educational director Claudia Martinez help their clients break free from the hassles of clumpy, high-maintenance mascara. By placing a single extension on each individual natural eyelash, they instantly create long, luscious lashes with natural-looking volume. Eyelash extensions range from dramatic cat-eyes to natural looks to fit each client?s personal style. Most looks require upkeep every two to three weeks. The Lashe Spot also offers a training program for aspiring lash technicians who can then go on to use Lashe Spot?s proprietary lash extension products and techniques and encourages interested candidates to inquire when visting. Waxing and nail care services are also available.

As its name implies, Twinkle Toes Nail Salon specializes in pedicures. Though it also offers classic and no-chip manicures, its pedicures go beyond the basics by incorporating ingredients like mint and chocolate. Each spa pedicure involves a suite of indulgent treatments, starting with a scrub, continuing with a massage, and concluding with a coat of polish or a knighting ceremony. The BYOB salon opens its doors to parties, grooming scores of fingers and toes while guests relax and sip wine.
Innovation Salon's savvy stylists and specialists execute a variety of beautifying services, from subtle shifts in appearance—made possible through waxes, extensions, and smoothing treatments—to complete overhauls such as perms, full-color treatments, and special occasion updos.
