When Sparrow Stylin’ Salon owner Lisa Branham became a certified stylist in 1983, she had a certifiable style of her own—a royal-blue mohawk. Though she’s since swapped her punk-rock coif for pretty blond highlights, she still encourages her team to embrace a diverse and norm-bending approach to styling. In addition to traditional cut and color services, Lisa and her stylists can be found creating special-effects colors, maintaining dreads, snipping away wads of gum, and ornamenting strands with feather extensions. Though often funky, their work can also be elegant, polishing frizzy locks with Brazilian blowouts and building romantic updos for weddings and special occasions.
The onsite spa furthers aesthetic overhauls with an extensive selection of facials and chemical peels. Lactic peels use a milk-based formula to brighten skin, and moisturizing seaweed facials can help clients befriend nearby whales. Clients can also have their nails groomed with Shellac manicures and select aromas of their choice for full-body sugar scrubs.
The namesake founder of Diana Senova Cosmetics is a make-up artist who draws upon a decade of experience. She specializes in airbrush makeup, dispatching a mist from the nostrils of a small, beautiful dragon she holds. The mist settles in a thin, natural-looking layer and blends realistically with pigment. Her skills are versatile. If a client asks to look like a well-rested version of herself, Diana will make her complexion appear more even and play up the eyes. Clients hoping for something more playful are also covered. For all its natural glowing complexions and lush lashes, Diana's portfolio also features faces festooned with metallic green stripes and hand-painted florals. In 2010, Diana expanded her business to include a proprietary line of cosmetics called DSC.

The studio's other stylists including Heather—a protégé of Candace's—also impart their knowledge of healthy haircare to clients. They update their 'dos with current and classic salon services, from adding length with Babe hair extensions to taming unruly frizz with formaldehyde-free keratin treatments from GKhair, Brazilian Blowout, or Diora.
Although Foundation's garden-level studio rests below the sidewalk’s surface, the interior feels open and bright. Sleek white furnishings at each cutting station glisten beneath crystal chandeliers, and the pale-green hues emanating from barber chairs and life-size trolls loitering by the shampoo bowls add a soft complement to the salon's minimalistic decor.
