Beautiful You Salon's seasoned hair sculptors gussy up heads with an array of cut and color services rendered with professional products from trusted brands such as Redken, Enjoy, and Pureology. Clients can tame wayward follicles during a haircut and style and marvel at the clarity of their emotional expressions with the sudden appearance of their eyebrows. Alternatively, customers can opt to streak manes witha partial highlights. During highlighting procedures, customers receive a haircut and style before their choice of color illuminates strands with a luminescence capable of attracting other bright objects, such as a glow stick or a nightlight Scotch-taped to a regular stick. Feel free to upgrade to receive a full head of highlights for an additional $20.
If a person is a reflection of her environment, then there is only one word to sum up Marie, one of A La Mode Studios' resident beauty experts: style. Chic decor hits visitors in the face as soon as they step through the studio's doors. On the left is a wall striped in off-white and light brown, and on the right is a wall of solid turquoise. The color schemes are completely different, but they complement each other perfectly—much like Marie and her fellow staffers.
A La Mode Studios isn't a typical salon or spa, and not just because it isn't located underwater. It's a collective of talented aestheticians, stylists, and other beauty professionals, each of whom leases a personal studio space. There, each independent contractor can add his or her personal decorations and products, and of course, administer their own lineup of beauty services. For Marie, that means cutting, styling, and coloring chic hairdo's for men and women. Between appointments, she and her fellow professionals often collaborate and share expert tips.
Janine brings her deft scissor work and artistic eye to Sola Salon Studios. The chic space mirrors the savvy work done by Janine and her colleagues. They offer not only haircuts and coloring treatments but a slate of specialized services that are done with craftsmanship and precision. Licensed aestheticians channel the same precision and eye for style when installing eyelash extensions, which gel seamlessly with the face and add some extra oomph that can entrance colleagues and maybe extinguish a few tea lights.
An elaborate chandelier illuminates patrons inside Studio Favoloso—located inside Image Studios—as stylist Adrian Diaz transforms manes with chic cuts, highlights, and updos. During haircuts, Adrian puts clients and terrified split-ends at ease with a scalp and shoulder massage and tends to gents with a hot-towel facial and eyebrow trim. She also dresses up faces with makeup applications for special events such as a wedding or the ceremonial eating of the last hot pocket in the freezer.
