Stylists have good reason to stick around The Salon By David and William. If they gain enough experience, they can move up the ranks from junior to senior to master stylist. It’s one way the salon retains its most promising talent, who together make up perhaps the most essential component in the salon’s ability to create contemporary looks. The stylists can attach extensions to make hair longer and fuller, or they can add a permanent wave that subtly appeals to surfers in landlocked countries. Elsewhere in the salon, beauty pros smooth out skin with waxing treatments and reduce the appearance of cellulite with toning body wraps, and massage therapists work through tension and alleviate chronic pain with Swedish or deep-tissue massages.
Over the past decade, Rivaz Salons has expanded to four locations where certified beauty professionals enhance natural beauty amid Indian-inspired accoutrements. Stylists update manes with haircuts, highlights, and color, and aestheticians accentuate looks with flare lashes and Shahnaz facials. Massage therapists perform traditional Indian massages with Ayurvedic oils, and trained specialists shape brows with a process known as threading. Three artists from India apply natural plant pigments to the skin as they design henna tattoos, which are said to attract joy and luck. When staffers aren't equipping clients for everyday beauty, they offer bridal packages for both traditional western and Indian weddings.
At Ashley Pure Beauty, haircuts are available as add-ons, but the stylists specialize in prepping gals for turning heads without a single snip of their scissors. At this blow-dry bar, they revamp 'dos with scalp therapies, updos, blowouts. Their haircare packages' names?such as Blow My Mind and Red Carpet Blowout?hint at the sassy, whimsical tone the salon cultivates.
Growing up, Kelly admired the fashion and poise of bombshells like Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn. She became a master stylist in an effort to create her own brand of classic beauty, and soon, she became so enamored with the job that she opened a salon.
At Vienna Signatures, a glass chandelier dangles from the ceiling like a single crystal earring, and turquoise walls lend the space a beachy vibe. Kelly works amid these accents, cutting hair and adding fresh color with Redken products. Clients can also request the salon's signature Malibu treatment, which removes impurities and leaves locks shinier than a silver dollar on the face of the sun.
Splashed with bright-orange walls, Beauty Trendz Salon and Spa puts little more pep in clients' step with head-to-toe beauty services. Makeup and waxing perk up faces, henna ornaments brides-to-be, and mani-pedis transform nails from average to attention grabbing.

Stylists prune strands and style head gardens to suit occasions from nights on the town to weddings and apocalypses. Locks shift along the prismatic spectrum under the care of colorists, and change texture with keratin and Aveda straightening services. The salon's staff makes sure to lend its clients the technical knowledge they need to maintain the health and style of coifs between visits.
