With each stylist trained in precision cuts, All That Jazz’s clients are in good scissor-hands. Additionally, each stylist is a color specialist, transforming manes with vibrant hues from brands such as Redken and Paul Mitchell. Updos prep heads for special events, and hair extensions give customers enough follicular length to use as a jump rope. Clients can also opt for below-the-neck services such as mani-pedis and hair-evicting waxes.
Strands Salon and Spa's founder, Jacquelyn Crabtree, is like a magnet for creativity, and she draws in all sorts of beauty professionals. She works on fashion shows, does editorial work for Sactown Magazine, and has styled the hair of television personalities?her primary areas of expertise being extensions and straightening. But unlike the security guard at a hall of mirrors, the hair expert can't be in all places at once. To that end, she's assembled a crack beauty team, each person having his or her unique specialties.
Its ranks include Tony Moreno, the salon's in-house color educator. Mr. Moreno has exhausted Aveda's curriculum of advanced education classes; he's even helped the well-known company develop products for its men's line. Along with Ms. Crabtree, Mr. Moreno keeps his fellow stylists up to date on the latest techniques. Massage therapist Mathew Abeyta, meanwhile, covers the spa side of the business.
Combined, the experts form an Aveda salon and spa that covers the full gamut of beauty services. Aveda hair rituals unfold at salon chairs, with perms, color services, scalp treatments, and other options. Nail rituals pamper hands and feet, while facials provide very specific benefits, such as clearing acne. Salon and spa treatments come together during packages such as the bride-focused A Day To Remember. The name is actually a bit of a misnomer, since it incorporates two separate visits with hairstyling, makeup, massages, and waxes that prepare wives-to-be for their trips down the aisle.
