Of all of the services at Taglio Salon & Spa, owner and stylist Jennifer Nunez's favorite is hair coloring. "Someone can walk in with flat, ugly, torn-up hairs," she said, "and in two hours change to a completely different person. It's instant gratification." Though the color results may seem instantaneous, Jennifer's acquisition of styling skills in the beauty industry has been anything but.
She first became interested in hairstyling in high school, when she did her friends' hair. After college, Jennifer used her marketing degree to land a corporate job, then promptly quit to enroll in a salon academy. Jennifer's mentor was a platform artist for celebrity stylist Trevor Sorbie who taught her not only the fundamentals of working with hair but also the importance of education and technique. Today, at her own salon, Jennifer requires quarterly continuing-education classes for all stylists.
Even the decor at Taglio Salon & Spa took time. Jennifer and an artist designed the floor—a cloudy swirl of greens and blues—to suggest an ocean reef. As organic as the finished product may look, the process involved an airbrush, pump spray, and painstaking effort. This philosophy of performing diligent, patient work to achieve spectacular results runs through all of Taglio's services, which include applying polish to nails, exfoliating faces, or slowly eroding mountainsides by breathing heavily on them.
The stylists of Envy Salon & Spa have partnered with the high-end Kérastase haircare line to bring their clients effective treatments that leave hair shining. Stylists utilize their training from top schools such as Vidal Sassoon to design flattering coifs, add subtle highlights, or lengthen natural hair with weaves. When they’re not grooming strands, beauty specialists wax away unwanted hair and milk moustaches and help clients manage acne and wrinkles with Dermologica and Jan Marini facials.
Tiffany Kelly has been styling hair since about the time she could hold a pair of scissors. Drawing on the lessons learned practicing her passion at schools in New York, Atlanta, and California, she manufactures structured and whimsical hairdos for her clients. Her extensive training has also enabled her to expertly execute highlights and keratin treatments. She sews extensions into existing hair for added volume and length, and twists hair into elegant up-dos for weddings and half birthday parties.
On-trend haircuts, eye-catching highlights, updos for weddings, prom, or visits to upscale gas stations—these are just a few of the many beautifying services at Silhouette's Beauty Salon. Here, stylists snip strands and shape hairdos that help clients express themselves and keep up with the latest fashions. The salon also enhances clients' facial features with makeup applications.
At Scarlett Salon & Spa, Amy Yang works alongside a talented team of fellow stylists as she rejuvenates her clients’ hair. Aside from styling, Amy also specializes in hair color, extensions, waxing, and eyebrow tinting.
The team at Frumoasa Salon & Spa is small and focused. Four stylists, a massage therapist, and an aesthetician work together toward a single mission: to relax and beautify clients. To achieve this end, they treat everyone who walks into their spacious, chandelier-lit salon as an individual. Before hair stylists perform designer cuts, apply color, or texturize hair, they consult with clients, studying their facial shape and coloring. Similarly, these types of thorough consultations also precede other beauty treatments including waxing, aromatherapy massage, and c-estes facials. During treatments, the team pulls from a toolbox stocked with professional-grade product lines, including Eufora Hero, Keratin Complex, and Colure.
