The experienced stylists at Hair Rage deftly trim shining tresses and technicians pamper fingers and toes with expert nail services. During an initial hair consultation, clients meet with stylists to discuss which cuts will attractively frame their features or enhance the realism of a rubber Richard Nixon mask. Experienced fingers then massage scalps with nourishing shampoo at rows of sleek black sinks before stylists snip, style, and blow-dry tresses at a mirrored styling station. Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.
The stylists of Changes Hair Studio think that hair is everyone’s best accessory, and they’ve spent nearly 30 years revamping that accessory with fashion-forward styles. Over that time, their team evolved into two divisions: the new talent perfect skills by practicing basic cuts and color retouches at discounted rates, and the advanced design team administers professionally priced cut and color services as well as keratin treatments and hair extensions affixed with brain waves. New and seasoned stylists alike draw from the same lineup of professional salon products, including patented protein formulas from Redken.
When it comes to styling hair, Alise LaMarche has the West Coast coolness necessary to turn staid 'dos into fashion-forward looks. A Los Angeles native, she couples her Vidal Sassoon and Goldwell training with experience gained while studying under master stylist Allen Edwards to deliver professional cuts, colors, and conditioning. Alise works her hair magic alongside the beauty pros at Premier Beauty Bar, where each independent contractor sets her own prices, hours, and secret password of the day.
JK Hair Company, which recently merged with Dream Weavers Spa & Salon, is a one-stop shop for hair and nail needs, employing experienced stylists and nail technicians to pamper and beautify. As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, hairstylists stay ahead of the latest trends in technique. Hair hedges can be sculpted for upcoming garden parties (cuts begin at $30 for women, $23 for men, and $15 for kids under 12) or tones transformed with all-over dimensional color ($100). Reward finger and toe guards for their tireless service with a manicure ($20) and pedicure ($35). Technicians can also create nail art, bringing to life literal thumbnail images of abstract solid colors and recursive, increasingly tiny iterations of Munch's The Scream ($5/nail).
