The only things cooler than an arcade is an arcade disguised as something else. Kish Haircuts appears to be a nice hair salon for adults, but it harbors a dual identity: TV and video games entertain kids, making it a contender for the title of World’s Best-Smelling Arcade. Of course, the salon also renders a full slate of hair services. Between deep-blue and off-white walls, stylists perform cuts and color treatments for tresses of all textures and types.
When Josie founded Gossip Salon and sought to hire fellow stylists, she prized one characteristic above all else: experience. These artists—many with more than 20 years in the business behind them—consider their clients' wishes and facial features before sculpting expert haircuts and applying color in both subtle and funky designs.
Plum Tree Salon & Spa sits on a former plum tree orchard. In the same spot where workers once toiled picking and carrying produce through the fields, massage therapists and aestheticians now stand by ready to provide a relaxing getaway with Swedish massages and European facials. The spa also staffs eight licensed stylists, who are on call to help spur personal transformations. Using products by Moroccanoil and Pureology, they sculpt haircuts, embellished with color and texture that make hair look as healthy and refreshed as a vitamin that just returned from Hawaii.
After honing her skills at multiple salons for more than a decade, Becky Sotillo finally decided to do her own thing, opening Dove Heart Studio. This newfound freedom gave her the luxury to truly blossom as an independent hair artist. She puts her creativity to use during services that range from simple haircuts and special occasion updos to hair extensions and partial and full highlights. She also expands her already extensive repertoire with lip and brow waxing, as well as keratin and frizz-taming treatments.
She works inside of Solera Salon & Spa, a luxurious multistory beauty oasis. After their visits with Becky, clients can relax at the building’s café and grab a cup of coffee or simply sit and get to know their new hairstyle a little better.
Inside Sana Beauty Salon, Sana Shaheen beautifies clients with methods old and new. She adorns hands, arms, and feet with intricate henna tattoos, which originated thousands of years ago, and employs the ancient art of threading to remove unwanted facial hair. For men's and women's physiques, however, Sana uses tried and true warm wax. The salon owner also embraces newer techniques, such as keratin, microdermabrasion, and electrolysis treatments. In addition, she cleanses complexions with facials and applies eye-enhancing Lavish Lashes eyelash extensions, which are particularly advantageous during speed eyelash-batting competitions.
Fifteen years ago, Zetta Steele founded Steele Cutz Salon—so in that way, it’s aptly named. However, its name is also misleading, in that the salon’s stylists do far more than just cut hair. They enhance hair color with highlights, all-over color, and colored glazes. They add length to locks with extensions. And they straighten curly hair with Brazilian Blowouts. This strand smoothing service can also make hair more manageable and less frizzy, which will stop people from asking to see your static electricity globe collection.
