Since 1995, the stylists at Sol Salon have harnessed extensive training to shear and primp shaggy manes into sleek perfection. Conditioning and smoothing treatments with organic Eufora serums rein in flyaways, and custom coloring using Matrix and Davines products helps life-size troll dolls go incognito. Hair whisperers also elongate locks using Extend Tube extensions, which clamp to natural strands via tiny metal tubes for long-lasting length. The salon's high ceilings, plum and orange accents, and creamy leather stylists' chairs embrace clients with a hip and colorful environment.
Consistency is the name of the game at The Academy of Beauty. Every year, the academy's experienced instructors churn out masterful cosmetologists skilled in haircuts, skincare, and waxing services. The students don't bury their faces in books to sharpen their skills, though. They practice on real-world clients instead of napping alley cats and use their on-the-job experience to gain confidence when performing cuts or other treatments. Academy of Beauty’s aesthetic treatments run the gamut from waxing to acne-fighting facials, while salon services shape and color hair.
Within the burnt-orange salon, expert stylists examine hair before taking scissors to strands and unleashing the professional bob or flirty long curls within. They specialize in Brazilian blowouts, which transforms curly or frizzy hair into smooth, straight lengths. A dedicated wedding stylist twists, braids, and knots hair into fancy updos for brides and maids of honor.
In a brightly lit studio surrounded by leafy plants and colorful wall art, Epitome Salon's expert aestheticians spruce up skin and clarify faces using Ayur-Medic beauty products. Faces dulled from anteater impersonations can de-stress and distill themselves of impurities with an Epitome facial, which employs an oxygen-infusing concoction that's suitable for most skin types, except those that are acne-prone. Alternatively, the microdermabrasion starts with a thorough cleansing before scrubbing away stagnant cells. Finally, faces are festooned with a calming mask and a moisture treatment to leave skin as new and youthful as a freshly hatched dolphin cub.
