The door to Bakerloo Salon and Gallery is always open, welcoming in fresh breezes and allowing the salon's pooch—a Boston Terrier named Dahlia—to sneak out and snooze in patches of sun. Inside the laid-back space, clients sip wine, coffee, or tea while stylists call upon advanced training by Toni&Guy and Vidal Sassoon to spice up hair with vibrant color or fresh new cuts. Each station stands stocked with shampoos and styling creams by ALFAPARF Milano, Schwarzkopf, and Unite Eurotherapy––a paraben- and sulfate-free, PETA-approved line that is never tested on animals or sharkskin suits.

Named a reader's choice salon by the North County Times in 2010, the space insists upon celebrating and welcoming the community. A rotating gallery displays work by local artists and hosts regular fashion and art shows, and the backyard invites patrons to peruse a selection of antiques available for purchase.

Hair Relaxers: Breaking Nature's Bonds

Thanks to hair relaxers, you can walk into a salon curly and leave straight. Zoom in on the chemistry of your curls with Groupon?s introduction.

Human hair is flexible enough to run wild as a mountain stream one day and fall as straight as water over the Hoover Dam the next. But to make lasting changes to its texture, you need to go beyond the reach of styling tools down to the chemical level. All hair is made of keratin, a hard protein that?s also central to our skin, nails, and exoskeletons. To form a single hair, keratin molecules link together in different patterns with the help of three types of chemical bonds: hydrogen bonds and salt bonds, both of which break easily in water and reform when dry, and disulphide bonds, which can only be broken by certain chemicals. In straight hair, the disulphide bonds are evenly aligned. In curly hair, however, the bonds occur irregularly and at odd angles, causing the hair to twist and kink on its way down.

When you style your hair with heat or water alone, you break the weaker hydrogen and salt bonds to allow your do to take a new shape. Once water touches your hair, however, the bonds reform in their customary way, and you?re back where you started. Chemical relaxers, therefore, work by dissolving the hair's tough, waterproof disulphide bonds and preventing them from reforming in their normal pattern.

The most powerful hair relaxers contain sodium hydroxide, otherwise known as lye. Given lye?s presence in drain openers and oven cleaners, you might guess that it can be quite harsh on human skin, which is why no-lye relaxers made from guanidine hydroxide are also common. There is a trade-off, however: some find that lye relaxers are harder on the scalp but gentler on hair, and work more quickly so that you can get back to staring at your hair in the mirror sooner. An experienced stylist can recommend the best method for your hair.

The stylists and aestheticians at Studio Be perform artistic balancing acts. On any given day, they might go from primping brides for their weddings to hosting basic lessons on cosmetics, or from designing complex updos to strengthening hair with protein treatments. The boutique balances on a trifecta of disciplines: hair fashion, makeup application, and skincare. The staff integrates their services to beautify guests from the neck up, combining products from brands such as Smashbox and Unite Eurotherapy.

Though Studio Be’s treatments span a broad spectrum, the team’s devotion to strong relationships with their clients remains a constant. Throughout chemical peels, photo shoots, and eyebrow-sculpting sessions, they consult with their subjects to craft personal, distinctive makeovers instead of continually trying to re-create their own best driver's-license photos.

When she first moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of being an actress, singer, and model, Jennifer Bradley learned that her skin needed to be flawless. But as someone who suffered from acne, that was much easier said than done, especially because most makeup lines wouldn't work with her skin.

When she became a makeup artist, Jennifer decided to create her own cosmetics line free of the fillers, fragrances, and oils that can exacerbate problem skin. She has since used her line on an impressive list of celebrities, including President Obama, Pamela Anderson, and Sharon Osbourne.

Jennifer's team of makeup artists at Salon Riche'a rely on her cosmetics to beautify guests for special events. The beauty experts also lead makeover classes, which teach students makeup-application techniques, such as how to create the perfect smoky eye without leaning over a campfire for extended periods of time.

The bubblegum pink that brightens Blo Blow Dry Bar reflects the blow dry bar’s whimsical approach to coifing. Born in 2007 to fill a gap in the beauty industry, Blo sticks solely to styling locks with seven signature Blo Outs that range from the smooth, voluminous Red Carpet to the Go Fish braid. The business caters to a range of customers from those prepping for a special date night to brides-to-be, spending up to 45 minutes delineating their desired looks during consultations.

Blo Blow Dry Bar assures its clients that they aren't "cheating" on their hairdressers, since the Blo Blow Dry Bar doesn't offer typical services such as cuts and color. Each stylist graduates from the Blo U(niversity) training program, and they can also perform extra services, such as deep conditioning, clip-in extensions, head massage, and luxury washes.

Todd Andrew Russo specializes in Balayage coloring techniques and something called the “Law of Three.” Though it sounds like the name of a sitcom starring love-crossed attorneys, this is actually an approach to hair design that uses symmetry, balance, and mathematics to create striking, yet natural looks. A stylist since 1991, Todd quickly made a name for himself in the San Diego area; he was tapped by Joico International as a P.K. educator and began attracting clients due to his experience in the fashion industry.

Today, clients continue to flock to Todd’s chair to experience his focused, personalized approach. His custom cuts and designs are fast becoming the stuff of local legend, thanks to flourishes such as Balayage color. His repertoire has evolved with the times and now includes everything from keratin smoothing treatments to shine treatments by Pravana.
