Within the chic confines of the Pink Pony Tail Salon, gifted stylists can help you give your look a touchup or create a new image altogether. Dramatic lighting, salon chairs set on a raised dais, and readings from Othello with each shampoo let customers feel like they’re center stage, but strategically placed mirrors and the stylists’ close personal attention create a sense of privacy. In addition to offering haircuts and styling, staff members revitalize ’dos with coloring and hair-strengthening conditioning treatments. Waxing and nail services are also available.
At Club Men Barbershop & Spa, guys have a lot of grooming options. They can follow up an old-fashioned hot straight razor shave with a full-body massage or a mani-pedi at the on-site spa. Other services include pore-clarifying facials and eyebrow waxing. The barbers also style the hair of women and kids, letting entire extended families stage reunions in the shop's plush leather chairs.
After years of watching her dad and aunt navigate the beauty business, Valerie felt predestined to take on clients of her own. Now, she's been in the industry for more than 30 years, and adores crafting complete makeovers—hairstyling included. Her team at Salon Nirvana is multitalented, specializing in edgy looks with bold colors as well as classic 'dos. Their texture treatments can result in straight locks, waves, or spirals, and their extensions come in two types: hair or feathers. They also perform mani-pedis and makeup applications.
Grasshopper-green walls and peach floor tiles flank the brightly lit space at Top Priority Salon, whose staff has been pampering clients for more than 16 years. Within the cheery interior, hairstylists occupy one side of the floor, reinventing looks with cut and color treatments fortified by products from the industry’s best-known names, such as Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, Pravana, and Redken. Nail artists showcase their talents on the opposite side of the salon, inviting clients to take a seat and enjoy an indulgent manicure, topped off with standard nail polish or acrylics. Additionally, cushy pedicure thrones encourage relaxation throughout indulgent hot-stone pedicures, enhanced by skin-softening masks and finished with polish. The salon also offers waxing for the face, underarms, and even the hands and fingers for those tired of masking their insecurities with restrictive oven mitts.
At her multicultural salon, Couture Stylez, Chaz James works with all types of tresses. The veteran stylist and colorist strengthens and moisturizes manes with various treatments, then cuts and colors them into chic looks. She also smoothes strands with relaxers, keratin treatments, and Japanese straightening treatments. If guests want more texture or curls in their locks, Chaz can apply a texturizing treatment or style hair into twist outs. She even sews in weaves and extensions or cross-stitches memorable scenes from Rapunzel into dos.
There’s always a busy buzz at Inspiration by Claudia. Inside, you can find stylists hard at work with cuts, blowouts, and conditioning treatments.

The staff speaks both English and Spanish, ensuring clients get the look they desire and not just this haircut photo glued to the back of their head.
