Genesis owner Jill Talbot has been busy the last few years. She's attended two Redken symposiums in Las Vegas, bareMinerals training in San Francisco, three Discover shows in St. Louis, and a DevaCurl cutting class in New York City. All this training, and she still considers herself a student.
Continuing education is a huge priority for Jill and her Genesis staff, and it shows in their expertise. Clients can request a sharp scissor cut, custom color, or sleek tapered highlights to flatter their individual features. The salon also offers other beautifying services, such as nailcare and specialty waxes.
Those not impressed with The Color Room Hair Salon's sleek hardwood floors and high vaulted ceilings are taken by the salon's centerpiece—modern chandeliers whose gold sequins glow in the sunlight. Amid these warm accents, expert stylists highlight bland strands and reduce frizz with keratin smoothing treatments. Guests may also request a formal updo, or banish unwanted hair from the body or face with a swift wax.
Part of the Bumble and bumble salon network, Ta-Da’ Salon has been styling visitors and teaching professional stylists for more than 30 years. Owner Kurt Busch designed his beauty oasis to evoke the feel of a salon in downtown New York City, and his team of stylists boasts a wealth of specialties. Some specialize in cutting curly hair, while others focus on coloring broccoli florets. Haircare isn’t the only item on the treatment menu, however; aestheticians administer facials and waxing, and nail technicians tend to hands and feet in a private pedicure room.
Mes Bon Amis Salon with Jen Grillo offers aesthetic treatments focused on two areas: hair and nails. Jen can apply vivid Gelish to nails during mani-pedis or flex her styling muscles with updos, textured cuts, and services for curly hair. She also animates a deep passion for color in her hair work, which she’s perfected over the course of eight years as a professional. During that time, she’s also taken classes on cutting, color techniques, and updos, sharpening her skills in the same way movie villains hone their skills through moustache-twirling classes.
Bella capelli is an Italian phrase that means beautiful hair. It's fitting, then, that amidst the salon's warm accents, skilled stylist Lindsey Pyatt blends classic and modern techniques to spruce up strands. She can revamp manes with a stylish new cut or simply trim bangs, add bold color or subtle highlights, invigorate hair with a deep-conditioning treatment, or smooth strands for weeks with keratin treatments.
Joy Shippey brings a decade of experience to the salon chair. Her haircuts and coloring services complement clients? face shape, skin tone, and nail polish hue. Her haircare products of choice include Aquage, Kenra, KMS, and Sebastian.
