Amy Tobias and Cathy Murray, aestheticians and co-owners of Transforming Techniques Salon and Medical Spa, each bring 17 years of beauty-biz experience to their treatment chairs. They and their team lavish complexions with a wide range of skin services, from antibacterial and oxygen facials to slightly more intensive chemical peels and wrinkle-fighting injections. Stylists tend to men's, women's, and kids' locks, keeping ends fresh and hairdos manageable, and techs groom both natural and artificial nails. Massage therapists knead stress from tense muscles, and depilation experts use wax to whisk unwanted body hair away from faces, legs, and plates of nachos.

Beautifying people is in Gisel Campbell's blood. The aesthetician is the daughter of a hairstylist and the niece of a nail technician, but she didn?t grow up wanting to pursue cosmetology and skincare. It wasn?t until she reached her 20s and began experimenting with her own makeup regimen that she came to love sharing her skills with other people. In addition to an aesthetician?s license, Gisel's extensive training includes certification in microdermabrasion, applying chemical peels, and facial waxing, which she performs at her space inside Salon Ventures and during gorilla wax-a-thons for charity.

Q&A with Mandi Darding

When and how did you first realize you wanted to be involved in hair styling?

In high school, I always did friends and [my own] hair for prom and homecomings. I realized I was talented and creative at doing hair, and decided that I wanted to pursue this as a career. I went to beauty school as soon as I graduated and have been doing ever since. And [I] love it.

What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?

Shampooing every day can really dry out you're hair and scalp, and make your haircolor fade really fast. Shampooing every other day helps keep natural oils in as [well as] keeping your color fresh.

What other services do you offer besides haircuts?

Waxing, coloring, ombres, and [my] newest feature is keratin treatments.
