Using top brands such as Paul Mitchell and Redken, the stylists at Azul Hair Salon create stylish new looks for their customers. Hair care services run the gamut from cuts and color to smoothing treatments and blowouts.

The team of stylists at BLU—which stands for "beauty living united"—have drawn on deep industry knowledge and skills to craft styles that suit each customer's personality. Alternatively, its team of aestheticians apply the same principles to their skin care practices.

Using organic marshmallow-root-infused conditioners and shampoos that emanate natural aromas, stylists render hair sleek in preparation for the everyday or special occasions, such as job interviews in wind tunnels. All hair trimming, coloring, and styling services also start and conclude with an additional relaxation treatment, such as a hand massage or a makeup touchup. Aestheticians soothe fitful skin with natural facial peels, smooth rough skin with botanical-based microdermabrasion treatments, and erase wrinkles by applying a layer of high-school yearbook photos.

Hair Connection believes that great hair isn't something that should be reserved for special occasions. That's why the stylists at this Aveda salon strive to create cuts that mirror the latest runway trends, but are still simple enough for clients to re-create at home. Each service includes a consultation, which allows the stylist to get an idea of your tastes, hair traits, and how often you use your hat to store gum you aren’t finished with. Using this info, they then create a look that can easily transition from day to night, and may prescribe a strengthening Aveda conditioner to nourish tresses with extra protein or moisture. For those battling a hair texture that's less than ideal, they can also use relaxers, Keratin Complex treatments, or the Brazilian Blowout formula to calm frizz and streamline morning styling routines. Naturally straight strands can take a break from the curling iron with permanent waves or spiral treatments.
For Rudy Castaneda, there is nothing better than seeing the smile on a person's face when they look in the mirror and see their own remarkable transformation. The image they see in the glass might show a classic updo, a contemporary hairstyle with streaks of color, or longer hair accomplished through the same kinds of extensions Rapunzel secretly used. For many of his clients, Rudy has become a regular feature in their beauty routines. He's snipped styles for some of the same people for more than 10 years and has also styled hair for countless wedding parties. A certified stylist and color specialist, he deftly sculpts styles for both men and women.
