For years, stylist Rachel Adams fielded requests for quick appointments by clients who had ?somewhere to be.? Dismayed by this in-and-out approach to pampering, she decided her own salon should be designed as a tranquil space that clients would think of as a destination rather than a stop along the way. Today, at Somewhere To Be Salon, Rachel and her staff help clients to soak up some much-needed ?me? time with mani-pedis, haircut and color services, and 30-minute facials performed under the light of a small crystal chandelier. And because staffers know how hard it can be to pencil in quality time with friends, they offer a special Girls Night Out package for ladies to catch up and make prank phone calls while enjoying makeup, nail, and hairstyling services.
Paju’da’s band of rock-star stylists, fronted by Cynthia Nava, transforms overgrown head hedges into well-manicured manes. Cynthia employs Goldwell and Moroccanoil products while working on manly locks ($20 value), women's 'dos ($37), and children's tresses ($15), with no additional fee for imaginary friends. All-over color treatments ($75) paint locks in high-definition hues, and partial ($77) or full ($97) highlights or lowlights may accent each strand's au natural luster then finish with a haircut. For finger-bound cuticles, a Shellac manicure layers newly trimmed and buffed nails with long-lasting Shellac polish, able to withstand even the most aggressive tickle fights.
From within CoCo & Company, stylist Jessica Torpey keeps busy sculpting the tresses of men, women, and children. Before each service, she holds a complimentary consultation to help her better understand each client?s beauty goals. Afterward, she gets to work lightening locks with an ombre technique, smoothing unruly frizz with a keratin relaxer, or creating elegant updos with curls. When she?s not focused on hair, Jessica spends her time spray-tanning her clients or sleeping on a big, heavy cushion called a ?mattress.?
