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.
The stylists and nail technicians at Sun Cuts Hair Salon & Spa—including a Spanish speaker and Redken color expert—combine years of experience with keen listening skills. The team transforms hair with salon services ranging from cuts and updos to specialty color services and permanents. Staffers enhance manicures with durable Shellac or OPI soak-off gel polish, and direct patrons to a cushioned throne for each spa pedicure.
The crew performs relaxing facials in a tranquil, private treatment room decorated in shades of green reminiscent of a verdant meadow or a jealous frog. Orchids and a glistening, metallic-blue waterfall greet clients when they enter, and the veteran-owned salon offers discounts to military personnel.
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 Comfort & Joy Wellness Spa, a team of aestheticians and massage therapists restores clients’ balance of tranquility, health, and beauty with ayurvedic treatments and organic products. Heated herbal packs, drizzles of warm oil, and the sound of whales singing Kenny G usher in peace during the Shirodhara ritual. Moroccan salt-glow body scrubs burnish skin with Dead Sea minerals and tangerine essential oil for dewy complexions. Staff members also perform European-inspired services with Epicuren and suki skincare products, SpaRitual vegan nail lacquer, and natural hair-coloring lines.
With more than 140 salons nationwide, Hollywood Tans has left its richly toned mark on bodies from coast to coast. Four varieties of vertical HT-manufactured booths welcome clients to bask in their UV glow and walk out 10 minutes later looking like a bronze statue of themselves. Instant Tan spray systems powered by Mystic Tan yield an even, natural tan in the shade of the client's choice that lasts up to seven days.
