Stylist Sunny Galaviz views hair as her canvas—which is appropriate because she's also a painter. At Davinci Salon and Spa, she swaps her brush and palette for professional hair products such as Matrix, Joico, and Wella color, and expresses her creativity through cuts, color, and texture services. Although she's an artist, she guides her wild side with professional training at Toni & Guy in Long Island and more than 20 years of experience.
Each stylist at Diamond Hair Salon has at least 5 years of experience—some have as many as 15—and lots of creative energy. They draw upon this knowledge as well as a stock of professional color and styling products to enhance the natural beauty of everyone who enters. Around them, delicate floral motifs and hardwoods lend a warm, family feel—a vibe that's further enhanced by a racecar chair for young children's haircuts.
With every snip of her shears, Amber Pubols shows off the skills she learned at The Salon Professional Academy.

The hand-painted murals at Tuscan Salon may catch clients' eyes on the way in, but it's the trendy ?dos created by stylist Chantha Touch that keep them gazing into the mirrors on the way out. To achieve these styles, Chantha?who boasts two decades of styling experience?uses nourishing conditioners to ward off frizz and carefully trims long locks to eliminate split ends. She also wields an arsenal of finishing tools, such as blow-driers, straighteners, and bluebirds on loan from Cinderella to sculpt manes into sleek final styles.
When Frenchy accidentally tinted her hair pink in Grease, she hid her curls under a handkerchief in embarrassment. When Megan Reimer colors someone's hair pink, it's a fashion-forward look her clients are eager to flaunt. Megan has a lot of fun experimenting with different styles of ombre color, a technique she has executed with bold pinks and purples, as well as more natural hues. With hair color, she feels she can really help clients invigorate their style, which she says is one of the things she loves so much about her profession, aside from the easy access to spinning chairs.
She also specializes in formal styles, and each year she looks forward to the start of wedding and prom season. Beyond creating intricate updos, she completes special-occasion styles with her makeup applications. As part of the team at Salon Centré, Megan works with innovative product lines such as Redken Chromatics, an ammonia-free line of hair color, and Pravana Perfection SmoothOut treatments, a formaldehyde-free keratin formula.
