Sunlight pours in through the three floor-to-ceiling windows in Hawaiian Glo’s airy storefront. In private rooms, multi-level tanning beds dispense skin-bronzing UV rays, while others offer UVB therapy, which can help treat psoriasis and lingering childhood fears that sunbeams will lasso you and drag you to the dentist’s office. The salon also provides full-body spray tans with professional Norvell solutions.
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.
After years of struggling with skin problems, Jessica decided to fight the battle head-on and dove into the world of aesthetics. She learned not only how to vanquish dermal problems, but also why they even exist—little tidbits she happily shares with her clients at Mahsa's Signature Salon.
Jessica diminishes acne, oil, and dry patches using Image skincare products such as a hydrating hyaluronic facial enhancer and eye-lift gel. She expertly buffs away dead skin cells, snowflakes, and dirt trapped in pores using exfoliating enzyme masks and micro-polish scrubs, and she further relaxes clients by combining aromatherapy with steam treatments.
Every day at Vogue Salon is a dream come true for Shannon Lawson, who imagined becoming a stylist as a little girl. She specializes in color treatments and relies on high-quality products from Redken and Socolor Matrix to create new shades. She also cuts hair and crafts updos, relying on the trends and techniques she learns as she continually enrolls in classes and seminars to hone her craft.
Sarah uses a pair of scissors and a keen eye to craft classic and modern hairstyles on her clients at Angels on the Balcony. She also applies highlights to strands, and tempers frizz with Brazilian blowout treatments. Sarah holds a license in cosmetology in Missouri, Illinois, and Mars.
