If you traveled back in time to see Shelly Rewinkle when she was a little girl, you probably wouldn't expect her to become a hairstylist. That's because she spent most of her time playing with boys and riding dirt bikes in California. But ever since the late 80s, this tomboy-turned-stylist has strengthened her skills by working in salons and training with brands such as Aveda and American Crew.
As the owner of Grand Salon, Shelly leads a team of stylists, who tend to manes and pour complimentary glasses of wine and cucumber water. In addition to their expert services, they have been known to go above and beyond by feeding clients' meters, grabbing their lunch, and videotaping their children's clarinet recitals. All of this takes place inside an old plant warehouse, where 20 skylights illumine the cavernous space. Before opening, Shelly brought in craftsmen to build tabletops out of old wood. By mixing these natural elements with the industrial feel of the building, she created a modern ambiance that still feels warm and inviting. At the front of salon, a boutique displays art and accessories alongside products by Bumble and bumble and Kerastase.
Guiltless Glow owner and proprietor Laurie Middleton was once a self-proclaimed “sun-worshipper," who relied on tanning beds for her bronzed glow. She soon learned of the benefits of airbrush tanning—the customizable shades, the skin-toning and evening properties, and lack of harmful UV rays—and has since dedicated herself to sharing that knowledge. Inside her studio, she's further expanded her passion for beautification, performing skincare, nail, and waxing services, offering Norvell automatic booth tans, and adding glow to grins with DaVinci organic teeth-whitening services.
At Diamonds & Pearls Nail Studio, master technician and 20-year industry veteran Liana indulges digits with FDA-approved products and paramount attention to detail. During any service, Liana goes the extra mile to make every client feel comfortable at her vented manicure table and plush pedicure chair.
As a child, Shapes Salon and Studio owner Richelle Bishop-Gonzales would tag along with her mother on weekly visits to the salon. The experience made an impression on Richelle. She opened the doors at Shapes more than a decade ago and hasn't looked back since. Nestled in the up-and-coming Lo-Hi neighborhood, Shapes Salon and Studio has carved out a unique niche for itself thanks to a talented staff that specializes in tricky cases, such as curly locks and invisible hair. The result is a full selection of cut and color services, including specialty treatments, such as Deva Cuts and Great Lengths hair extensions.
Salon owner and master stylist Ergun Tercan leads a team of talented stylists in his salon, where continuing education and precise, stylish hair services are the norm. Born into a family of stylists, Tercan inherited their passion for hair and channeled it into his experience, which has spanned two decades and multiple trainings with Vidal Sassoon and the Bumble & bumble Academy. Beside wide and bright windows that mirror the smiles of the staff, stylists apply Wella professional color and style with Bumble & bumble products. They augment clients’ manes with natural hair extensions, imported from Europe. The team can refine expressions after eyebrow tinting or brow threading, which uses cotton threads to sculpt elegant curves or the classic sideways semicolon look.
