If you've got tangled, dry, or frizzy hair, Magnena Jones recommends one of her homemade hair cocktails, a custom-made mix of haircare products meant to combat aesthetic issues.
Magnena and her team administer all of their hair services with a similar degree of personalization. Their 'dos range from quirky pixie cuts and pompadours to neat bobs and simple trims, often colored in with solid hues or highlights. They can unwind curls with relaxers or add volume to hair with a blowout. Like a person trapped in an abandoned library, Magnena is always learning something new; her work with both men's and women's hair is informed by classes from companies such as Redken as well as collaboration with industry leaders, including celebrity stylist Kim Kimble.

Both treatments aim to rejuvenate well-traveled mugs by lessening obvious signs of age including dull skin, fine lines, and birthday-candle residue.
