Bryan Beaver has traveled the world in search of beauty. The master stylist and colorist has visited top salons in New York City, Miami, and Paris, where he developed his signature, French-influenced style. Along the way, he’s mentored hundreds of stylists in the ways of cutting-edge fashion and had his work showcased in Elle, Vogue, and on a billboard on the moon.
At home, Bryan oversees a talented staff of stylists, makeup artists, and nail technicians at his salon. He and his team create stylish and wearable looks in private styling stations outfitted with crystal chandeliers and full-length mirrors. The rest of the space is ultra-chic, too, with lime-green walls, minimalist furniture, and colorful artwork.
In the midst of invigorating cappuccino-colored walls, bold original artwork, and mirrors filled with smiling reflections, Phia Salon, an Aveda Lifestyle Salon, infuses hairs and pores with pure flower essences and plant-based botanical products. Four levels of talent are available to tackle every service, from an extensive list of cut and color services to hair extensions, waxing, and skin care. Each of their cut and color services is accompanied by a stress-relieving sensory experience that ranges from a mini facial to a soothing hand-and-arm massage.
Phia Salon extends Aveda's commitment to natural products and the environment to its own salon with eco-friendly business practices, such as constantly monitoring and recycling waste and using phosphate-free soaps. The salon’s cork floors are sustainably harvested and surrounded by eco-friendly paint on the walls, and the organic milk used in coffee and tea comes from local, grass-fed cattle who carpool to work.
Jennifer Lazzell knows faces. As the owner of Studio 84, she spends her time ensuring that each complexion she encounters leaves looking healthy and radiant, regardless of whether it started as oily, dry, or acne-prone. To accomplish this task, she carefully curates a selection of products––including the botanical-rich Pharmagel line—for each face, creating a custom treatment that yields results clients can both see and feel. A licensed aesthetician for nine years, Jennifer also lends her pampering expertise to pedicures and manicures and can remove unwanted mustaches that often appear on the lips, cheek, chin, or brows.
While awaiting treatment, clients can relax in the serene surroundings of Jennifer's studio. Pictures of beachside locales dot the seashell-colored walls, and the sound of trickling water floats from the miniature rock fountain in the waiting room.
On any given day, The Lash & Nail Company’s team of seasoned beauticians can be found gussying up the hands, faces, and eyelashes of their patrons with an array of glamor-boosting services. The salon’s aestheticians apply sets of permanent and semipermanent extensions around peepers to beef up natural eyelashes, whereas nail technicians slather natural backscratchers with OPI Axxium gel that can remain chip-free for up to two weeks or seven high-fives from the Statue of Liberty. Staffers also perform facial waxing services to de-fuzz visages.
With more than 10 years of experience between her scissor blades, stylist Stephanie Mahone has learned how to help clients achieve a full spectrum of looks. On the one hand, she delights in doling out down-to-earth trims; on the other, she can sometimes get a little creative. Clients who entrust their locks into her hands might walk away with anything from a chic bob or a wholly new face-framing style with bold color that edges toward the experimental. It's all up to what the client is looking for, which Stephanie establishes first thing during a consultation.
