The stylists at Fantastic Sams keep things simple?but that doesn't mean plain. These mane-makers fill a head of hair's everyday needs with services such as haircuts for everyone, styles, facial waxing, and lash extensions. They also go beyond basic services with conditioning treatments, foil highlights, and texture services more effective than simply slipping some gin into the shampoo. All services are complemented with their trademark Fantastic shampoo therapy, a treatment which includes a three-minute scalp massage and conditioning rinse.
Salon KB’s fleet of stylists and aestheticians strives to relax guests and improve skin through a slew of services that include haircutting, facials, and waxing. Dana Bott, the resident aesthetician, performs a variety of facials that target various skin ailments, including rosacea, acne, and signs of aging. Dana also applies makeup for her clients, helping them feel more radiant or explore new looks. When it comes to hair, the salon’s trio of stylists works to manipulate locks into fashionable coifs as they perform haircuts and coloring services. Several deep-conditioning treatments are available to extend the longevity of hair coloring or to make hair softer and more likely to be okay with being cut in half.

The staff at Hybrid Salon combines artistic sensibility with technical savvy, and the result is one dynamic salon. And folks have noticed. For three years running, Hybrid has taken home the Talk of the Town "Costumer Satisfaction Award". Along with their outsized dose of talent, the staff arms themselves with only high-end Redken coloring products in their services and treatments. Beyond basic cuts and colors, they offer Brazilian blowouts, waxing treatments, nail art, and a full blow-dry bar. No matter the treatment, stylists make a point to meet with new clients before every service to ensure a personal touch.
The stylists at Josie Studio One Salon come armed with a diverse lineup of haircare products, which spans from Moroccan Oil solutions for conditioning hair to American Crew products designed especially for men. They also call on Redken's popular line of styling and color products—appropriate enough considering their ranks include a hair colorist certified by Redken Fifth Avenue New York. When the stylists finish straightening and partial foiling clients' hair, they send the clients along to the salon's other specialists, who darken and lengthen lash lines with synthetic, semi-permanent eyelash extensions and wax away hair along the lip and inside the chin's backup supply tanks.
Though Gene Pletzer boasts nearly a half century of working with hair restoration, today his salon team puts their talents into a full array of hair, skin, and nail services. Whether clients seek a new style, highlights, or help getting over a fear of blow dryers, the majority of Gene’s stylists bring more than a decade of expertise to each careful snip. As early adopters of keratin treatments, stylists are also thoroughly trained in using Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy, a semipermanent formula that combats frizz and curls to ease daily styling. Elsewhere in the salon, Gene’s nail technicians groom digits with spa manicures and pedicures and aestheticians remove unwanted facial and body hair with waxing treatments.
