The attentive specialists of Bliss Salon & Spa acquaint themselves with each client's unique personality and beauty needs before bolstering exteriors with their slate of customized aesthetic services. Hairstylists wielding Goldwell and TIGI products sculpt coifs with cuts, highlights, and extensions beneath steel-blue walls decked in abstract art. Pedicure clients ascend three granite stairs to settle into creamy white armchairs and dip feet into warm, sudsy water, cleansing and softening them in preparation for a range of foot-centered services. Meanwhile, at manicure stations, techs embellish fingers with acrylic tips, CND Shellac, and OPI polishes. Within a private treatment room, aestheticians brighten faces and physiques with facials, waxing, and spray-tanning services. The tranquil skincare space brims with nature-inspired artwork and strings of miniature light bulbs, which illuminate the leaves of a small tree to give newly liberated monkeys-on-backs a place to call home.
Headlines International Salon’s well-rounded crew of stylists brings its many talents together to renovate outmoded ‘dos, consulting with clients before tailoring new hairstyles based on personal tastes. Amid a chorus of snipping scissors and friendly conversation, guests sidle up to styling stations where bilingual hairdressers chop away split ends, moisturize parched strands with deep-conditioning treatments, and blow-dry freshly sheared locks into bouncy styles. Along with their signature salon services, beauticians also whisk away unwanted fuzz on upper lips and eyebrows using wax––a much better method of hair removal than standing dangerously close to a shuttle launch.
A licensed cosmetologist and second-degree black belt, owner Suprena Clark divides her time between styling hair and leading self-defense classes inside Fusion Studios' full-size mixed-martial-arts ring. While her staff of cosmetologists groom heads and tattoo artists ornament bodies, Suprena often leads Zumba and martial-arts classes inside the ring, which takes up about half the studio's space. When she isn't teaching others how to perform ax kicks, Suprena spends her time behind a styling chair, chopping off dead ends and punching up hairdos with splashes of color.
At her salon chair in Unique Hair Design, hairstylist Lasalette Oliveira helps reinvent each client's personal style alongside a talented, fashion-savvy staff that keeps track of the latest trends. Lasalette overhauls outer appearances with haircuts, blowouts, deep-conditioning treatments, and ombre coloring. With the help of styling products from Paul Mitchell and Moroccan Oil, she remodels curls, bangs, and parrot's nests. She also performs bridal services to help prepare brides-to-be and their friends for a big day under the altar and in front of the cameras.
The expert stylists at California Cuts snip away unsightly split ends with a swift movement of the scissors, fashioning hair into styles. They can customize haircuts to flatter facial features, and add coloring services to match skin tones.
Haircuts for men, women, and children abound inside Evolution Salon. Other hair-related services include perms, highlights, and extensions made from 100% human or My Little Pony hair.
