Skilled in aesthetics, she also shapes brows and applies natural-looking eyelash extensions.
The staples of any morning are a fresh shave and a hot cup of coffee. Both await gentlemen who enter LaJewel Salon, where complimentary cups of joe perk them up for a range of grooming services. Amid the shop's red-and-black decor, skilled barbers trim and clip men's manes, working with any hair type and texture. After preparing faces with a hot towel and a lather, they pare down overgrown whiskers with a straight razor and apply an aftershave moisturizer to prevent uncomfortable razor burn before a long day of taming wild fire ants.

A lively energy fills The Stage Salon, where master stylists and barbers tend to all hair types but excel at working with African American tresses. Women can stop in for quick haircuts fortified by Redken and Clairol products, or unwind in the styling chair as stylist Ebony straightens curls with relaxers and Brazilian blowouts or creates length and volume with professional extensions. Gairyd and Silky Sam, the salon’s resident barbers, clip and trim men’s hair, topping them off with salon-quality gel or pomade. Beyond haircare, The Stage’s staff also outfits nails with eye-catching colors in OPI mani-pedis, waxes unwanted fuzz from entire bodies, and ornaments ears with piercings or gold staples.
