Elegant lanterns hang overhead like glowing teacups, illuminating the rich wood cabinetry and earthen clay tiles of En Gedi Salon. Amid these rustic accents, skilled stylist Jenn Masterson chisels face-flattering layers and splashes strands with confident color highlights. Clients may also solicit Jenn for a keratin thermal-straightening treatment, or evict unwanted hair with a specialty waxing session.
Three decades of rock music dominate the airwaves at Rockn' Hair, where stylists with nearly as much experience upgrade hairdos to match the hip and creative standards of famous musicians. Serving as an upbeat alternative to froufrou salons, Rockn' Hair spoils its clients with luxury shampoo bowls, European head dryers, and stylists who specialize in precision cuts and creative color. The edge comes from the soundtrack of rock 'n' roll that spans the '50s through the '80s, and the creative hairdressers who turn their chairs into backstage dressing rooms. The walls double as an inspiration gallery, displaying portraits of stars such as David Bowie, famed for his glossy, tousled locks, and Elvis, known for slicking his hair back with peanut butter and mashed bananas.
Master barbers fashion locks and sever dead ends with hair services performed inside Bull Locks Hair's old-fashioned, no-frills barbershop. Manly manes beef up with modern styles, flattops, fades, or military cuts accompanied by orders to drop and do 20. All men's cuts include a complimentary, hot-lather neck shave that removes stubble. The shop also cuts strands from the tops of female heads with precise shears-oriented maneuvers. Quick lites festoon hairdos with streaks from 6–10 foils, whereas full highlights cover the entire head with foils to enliven locks and enable clients to telepathically gossip with aliens.
Kelly, owner and head stylist of Visions Salon, presides over a team intent on transforming lackluster strands into trendy coiffures. Armed with a brigade of high-end products, a stylist slathers strands with a deep-conditioning treatment designed to lock in moisture more efficiently than Poseidon's panic room. A scissor-wielding specialist then snips off split ends and sculpts desired layers as clients sip complimentary tea, coffee, and wine. The professional aesthete then sends newly magnificent locks on their way styled in soft waves, ironed flat, or molded into a self-portrait.
