Amid live greenery and plentiful sunlight, Lucia C. Salon's talented stylists prune quick-growing hair into sculpted coifs with the latest cut and color techniques. The crew sinks dry or damaged strands into a helping of reparative conditioning treatments before cutting excess length or straightening curlicues. Their color treatments bless hair with new hues, as quick foil sessions help hair absorb shimmering highlights and patrons practice for school musicals in which they play baked potatoes. In the privacy of a secluded room, the crew wields warm wax to swiftly strip away fuzz from the face and body and infuse skin with a natural-looking glow with the help of airbrush-tanning solutions.
From the sunlight filtering through the window to the highlights radiating from newly styled dos, the interior of Karma Salon & Spa is filled with the brightness that only beauty brings. There, a team of stylists trained in systems by Redken and Pureology beautify hair with ammonia-free color and the Coppola Keratin System. Staffers also rejuvenate skin with Dermalogica facials, resurface faces with exfoliating Jessner peels, and ease muscles with a relaxing hot stone massage.
Perfection in one’s art can be extremely difficulty to achieve. But that doesn't stop the stylists at Shear Perfection by Kristen from trying. As clients sit at hair stations inside the cozy boutique studio, they use scissors, dyes, and straighteners to create styles that best suit each of their guests. As a full-service salon, Shear Perfection also readies brides for their big day with full wedding packages that include styling, a continental breakfast, and tips on how to avoid getting rice stuck to your face.
When it comes to finding the right hair stylist, it's not just their experience that matters, but the type of experience. That's where Mina Floros and Kristin Sarzosa come in. With more than 40 years of styling between them, Mina and Kristin are regulars behind the scenes at Fashion Week in New York, Miami, and L.A. This keeps them on the pulse of trends, as do their continual trainings with renowned product lines Kerastase, Wella, and Arrojo. Amidst the brick and hardwood of their loft space, Lounge Hair Studio, they apply their hands-on experience to clients via cuts, highlights, and keratin treatments, the last of which pumps protein into hair more effectively than feeding it hamburgers.
