Light floods the salon space through a large overhead skylight, casting natural glow on leather furniture, lush potted plants, and floor tiles the color of white chocolate. Amid these elegant accents, skilled stylist Jimie Aguilar highlights bland strands and sculpts cuts to each client's personality and facial features. Alexander's 10,000-square-foot space also features other beautifying services such as nail shaping, waxing, and facial peels to renovate the complexion.

Before Lisa Tolossa took over the reins of her beauty center and renamed it Doo It Up Salon, she was an employee for the previous owner. In the five years before she purchased the business, she perfected her skills as a hairstylist by learning Redken and Schwarzkopf coloring methods, studying Framesi cutting techniques, and earning certifications from Brazilian Blowout, Cadiveu, Keratin Complex, and Joico.
Today, Tolossa captains a roster of stylists who primp clients at the salon’s nine hair stations, one nail station, and two private rooms. Amidst deep-purple accents, corrugated-metal walls, and Craftsman tool chests filled with beauty supplies, the multitalented staff - including nail technician and mani-pedi expert Lynne Ho - crafts new looks with an array of services for nails, hair, and skin. They also sell products by Eufora, Moroccanoil, Brazilian Blowout, and American Crew, which can be used to style coiffures or lubricate a squeaky robotic arm.
Aesthetician and licensed cosmetologist Laura boasts a 100% success rate with clients that follow her acne program after receiving a problem-skin facial. Treating acne is one of her specialties, and she gets such great results due to her 15 years' experience and stints at a variety of spas. Now her own boss at A Skin Care Affair, Laura offers a slate of services that include facials, peels, airbrush tanning, and waxing, using brands such as Epicuren, Advanced Rejuvenating Concepts Skincare, and Image Skincare to beautify clients.
A full line of Bumble and bumble. products works as Lisa’s sidekick in creating new hairdos for men, women, teens, and children. In addition, the stylist uses scissors to shear unwanted length and a kaleidoscope of dyes to color strands with all-over hues, highlights, or lowlights. She also offers texturizing services, uncurling locks with Japanese straighteners, smoothing frizzy manes with Brazilian Blowouts, and creating permanent waves that leave clients ready for a day at the beach or a date with a pool noodle.
Hairstylist Elizabeth Jacobs expertly attaches hair extensions with a choice of tape or microbeads, creating a natural look with added length and volume. Her versatility also extends to hair's hue and texture. She can paint in sun-kissed highlights or an ombre wash, and she's certified to tame frizz and smooth curls with Brazilian blowouts.
