Stylist Sherry Nasir knows sleek. Her ultra-modern salon is decked out in all-black styling chairs and bright-red walls. And inside those walls, she uses her 15 years of experience to transform unruly manes into silken waterfalls of smooth, shiny hair with precision cuts, styling, and Brazilian blowouts. The popular South American–inspired treatment strengthens frizzy hair with proteins that straighten, smoothen, and protect each hair shaft and make hair more manageable for up to 12 weeks. Clients at De-lush can also opt for waxing services, as well as facials that incorporate organic ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, and bubbles harvested each time a fish breathes.
With a wealth of experience and a full cache of beauty certifications under her stylish belt, it's clear that owner Mindy Lien is passionate about her field. She's also intent on sharing her wisdom and ability to fluently converse with combs with new stylists. Therefore, she decided to open a warmly lit studio where talented artists perform hair and waxing services. Each member of the seven-person team brings a unique specialty to their post. For example, Johnny alchemizes custom color cocktails, Mai blends dimensional color with carefully crafted textures, and Vince draws on his formal design background to inspire his especially unique shapes and hues.
Hair Attractions’ state-of-the-art styling stations and pedicure chairs ensconce clients undergoing a comprehensive array of beauty and hair services. For more than a decade, the salon’s licensed aestheticians and cosmetologists have painted manes with highlights and color, threaded and waxed away unwanted stubble, and styled clients for special occasions, such as galas with comb-over themes, using hair products from Pureology, SexyHair, and others. Patrons can call ahead for an appointment, or walk in on the spur of the moment for personalized beauty ministrations.
At Hidden Oasis, an international team of five stylists rely on a wealth of experience to transform clients with both classic and conceptual techniques. Using only Aveda products, they pamper patrons with hair coloring, waxes, facials, and holistic conditioning treatments. Their signature service, however, is the salon's Blow Dry Bar. Here, stylists start each appointment with a relaxing scalp massage and shampoo, followed by a luxurious blowout. The salon's decor is just as stylish as the dos that leave the Blow Dry Bar?from the brightly lit, modern styling space with its nature-inspired artwork, to the dark and calming massage rooms.
Consider VA Spa & Salon a beauty and relaxation sanctuary. Inspired by beauty icons of the past such as Audrey Hepburn, whose portrait hangs above a pedicure chair, the staff beautifies its clients with hair styling, nail care, and other spa treatments. To wit, the Rita Hayworth Touch and Caress treatment combines a soothing Swedish massage with essential oils for complete relaxation. And aestheticians specialize in administering facials inspired by Grace Kelly or Ava Gardner, and, for the gents, a Cary Grant facial that includes a neck and shoulder massage.
Looking good and feeling good should go hand in hand, which is why the staff at Dante Salon & Wellness Spa has compiled a list of services that go beyond beauty to help treat full-body health. As stylists smother strands in products from Goldwell and Paul Mitchell, the in-house chiropractor stays busy addressing the needs of those suffering from chronic pain, using tender techniques that can include neuromuscular therapy or sport-specific stretches. Meanwhile, aestheticians coddle skin in Image Skincare professional products that soak into pores to remove dirt and exfoliate away dead skin cells before they have a chance to rise again as undead skin cells.
