Salon Dolce Vita’s master scissor-wielder, Andrea Dupree, enlists 15 years of strand-snipping experience to create chic and elegant styles. Locks unfurl in the tress-tamer’s lithe fingers as she clears away split ends and tumbleweeds and leaves hair gardens flawlessly pruned. Manes eager for a punch of color can receive either a noggin’s worth of illuminating highlights or a full head of drenching hues before reveling in a toasty bout under a blow-dryer for a polished finish. After the mane refurbishment, clients can admire new ‘dos in a crystal-clear mirror or a stranger's glasses or enlist the opinion of the notoriously persnickety sun, which gallivants through the salon’s floor-to-ceiling windows.
Z-ba Salon Esthetic boasts an international team of stylists and aestheticians, whose goal is to work with clients to draw out their most flattering features and craft a look that emphasizes their unique personal style. They achieve this through a range of beauty services, from haircuts and coloring treatments to mani-pedis and facials. The European facial, for instance, revitalizes skin with exfoliation and a custom mask, and the Vitamin C Brightening facial combats fine lines that might signify customers' age or their tendency to fold their face into a paper airplane. Other treatments include full-body massages and sugaring hair removal.
Mirror Mirror Salon’s stylists tend to the hair and skin with slew of advanced serums, including products from Davines Haircare and Dermalogica. Though the hair techs reserve specialty services—such as keratin and texturizing treatments—for female clients, they still welcome men, women, and children alike to drop in for a cut. The salon complements hair services with facials and waxing services that prevent hyper-progressive hairstyles such as the forearm fauxhawk. They also tackle the phalanx of beauty procedures that often accompany weddings, including special nuptial packages.
With more than 13 years of snipping experience under her comb-filled belt, stylist Nicki Owens revamps tired looks with salon services ranging from cuts and highlights to facial waxing. She also reshapes the movements of hair itself, smoothing out frizz with relaxers or increasing functionality through perms. Nicki stays ready to adjust styles throughout the day, often scheduling appointments in the evening to accommodate work schedules or fear of the sun.
Tending to all things follicular, stylist and aesthetician Whitney Allie stakes her claim at Images Salon Studios, where she styles and colors coifs. Allie snips stylish dos for men, women, and children; restores shine with deep-conditioning treatments; and adds dimension with full highlights and hair extensions. Her other haircentric specialty is waxing. She uses Satin Smooth wax, which leaves skin smooth across the physique, from face to legs to tail.
Inspired by style icons Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, Liliana at Blush Salon crafts men's, women's, and children's hair into stylish coifs. She specializes in precise cutting techniques, vibrant color, elongating hair extensions, and facial waxing. Continuing-education courses keep the salon's experienced stylists up-to-date on the latest looks, so they can just as easily color manes in ombre hues as they can shear locks into classic pixie cuts.
