Since 1986, Shear Art Salon & Spa has provided professional, talented stylists who carefully help achieve their clients' beautifying objectives. If you have an unwanted shade of hair on your head, Shear Art Salon will color it (starting at $49). If you don't have enough hair, Shear Art can give you extensions (prices determined per consultation). If you have too much hair, Shear Art can cut it in a way that makes you feel content (starting at $35 for women, $28 for men). If your hair already makes you feel content, Shear Art will give you a manicure (starting at $25) or pedicure (starting at $42) to make your fingers and toes content enough to match your highly contented hair. Sometimes, when the tides of stress rise, you need a firm pat on the back to sooth your pains, preferably from experienced hands. Shear Art spa services include therapeutic treatments for your body, such as seven distinctive massages (starting at $48), facials and peels (starting at $63), spray tanning (starting at $34), professional makeup application (starting at $40), and bridal packages (starting at $180 per person).
A painter at heart, Crystal Leigh Wood has adopted hair as her art, with Paul Mitchell color being her primary medium. She coats locks in vivid hues, streaks strands with highlights, and tints manes in varying shades of blond. Painting hair in rich shades of color isn't her only skill, though. Crystal sharpened her shears at the Paul Mitchell the School Tampa, where she learned to fashion stylish coifs for men, women, and children. The school also honed her expertise with Paul Mitchell products, including the Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger line, which she uses to add softness and shine to her palette.
Unless you've been cloned, your hair is unique—that's why skilled stylist Wirlly Ayala takes great care to assess the texture, length, and color before crafting a style suited to each client's needs. Drawing on her education from Paul Mitchell The School, Wirlly can also engineer an elegant updo, color strands with bold highlights, or tame frizzy hair with a keratin straightening treatment.
Hearing the words "carve and slice" in the same sentence as the words “beauty treatment” probably brings to mind painful plastic surgery, but at TranZitions Hair Salon, it's actually a service for your curls. Ouidad-certified stylists perform the carve-and-slice technique to cut down on the unwanted volume that causes a "pyramid look" while still defining and plumping up your ringlets. It's one of a select few Ouidad procedures at the salon, which also employs products from Paul Mitchell, Goldwell, Kenra, Redken, and other high-profile brands. The hair mavens administer treatments that range from custom highlights and complex updos to a 15-minute bang trim, a far chicer way to keep your hair out of your eyes than installing an awning on your glasses.
Besides their cuts and color applications, the staff also performs waxing, makeup, and nail services, which can include extras such as an aromatherapy hand massage. Additionally, skincare specialists exfoliate complexions with facials and microdermabrasion.
Nichole Bardes uses products from Redken and Pravana during hairstyling services that include cuts, color, and deep conditioning.

Fifteen years ago, Richard Santana leapt into the hairstyling industry when he began an apprenticeship at one of Atlanta's largest high-end salons. From there, he moved back home to Tampa, graduated from hair school, and became a Redken Master Specialist and a member of the Redken Performing Artist team, where his duties included educating others on the use of Redken products through interpretive dance. Today, he plies his trade at RTS Hair, where he has impressed clients with his specialty work in hair design, color, and keratin treatments, as well as age-appropriate cuts for kids.
