For Darryl Hair Studio?s eponymous owner, the utmost important aspect of doing hair is education, and as a stylist and instructor, he makes sure that his clients can re-create their new looks at home and that his staff is abreast of all the latest trends. He and his staff undergo year-round continuing education training, constantly honing their techniques and learning the of-the-moment styles, such as ombre highlights. Beyond cuts and coloring, Darryl specializes in relaxer and keratin treatments, which completely transform the texture of his clients? hair. Using Keratin Complex by Coppola, he can tame both frizziness and curls, resulting in hair that is as smooth and manageable as young Frank Sinatra.
GS Hair owner Greg Saumure is so particular about who he hires that he created The Cut Test, a trial by scissors that challenges prospective stylists to execute five different haircut styles as well as demonstrate mastery in coloring tresses. The result is a staff of Paul Mitchell? and Vidal Sassoon?educated stylists with such extensive knowledge that they can cut a trendy bob while blindfolded with a writhing koala. These stylists work their mane magic across a 3,000-square-foot space complete with 20 hair stations, ergonomically designed shampoo bowls, and even a mani-pedi lounge.
From hair extensions in vibrant colors to keratin formulas to bowls of warm wax, the specialists at Studio Hair Design have every tool necessary to bolster their clients? visages. They remove unwanted hair from upper lips or brows and ready faces for any situation with permanent-makeup applications. Additionally, stylists take their scissors and curling irons on the road when they travel to housebound customers or bridal parties for on-location appointments.
No acne, wrinkle, or enlarged pore gets by aesthetician Katy. That’s because she has a slate of treatments to combat unruly skin. Her balancing facials include a custom treatment mask, and her peels resurface faces. She also uses a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand to clear out dead skin cells or to ward off evil spirits from the island Porecloggia.

From styling celebrity hair to revitalizing complexions with relaxing facials, the team at Willo Aveda, an Aveda concept salon, aims to fill local mirrors with visions of beauty. Stylists of five different experience levels wash and rinse hair before breathing new life into languishing strands with a tailored cut and blow-dry. Alternatively, hair artisans can deploy Aveda's 97%?99% naturally derived formulas to refresh hair with a single-process color or nourish locks with conditioning plant oils that leave hair shinier than a freshly licked ring pop. The stylists at Willo Aveda also stay engaged with their clients through an active blog that celebrates lauded hair happenings.
