Jevonne Riley's hairstylists repel frizz and frayed ends with botanical-based Aveda products combined during coloring, styling, and waxing services performed amid slate-gray walls and umber flooring. A complimentary consultation hammers out clients’ tastes before all-over color or partial foils edit hair hues to bring out inner spunk or hide previously outer spunk from the police. Shears rein in overflowing tendrils, carving fringe, layers, or bobs, whereas waxing services whisk unwanted fuzz from the face. Great Lengths hair extensions elongate manes, and Aveda sensory rituals supply clients with complimentary sips of tea, makeup touchups to enhance natural beauty, and a neck-and-shoulder ritual to relax away stress. Jevonne Riley's stylists also preen noggins for special occasions such as weddings, proms, and 20-year book-club reunions.

Ulta's licensed staff, which partakes in ongoing training to keep skills sharp, creates customized looks and expert image enhancement using acclaimed beauty products. Like a loaf of bread in a space shuttle with a broken sunroof, hairstyles can grow stale between salon visits.

In the one-hour Dermalogica facial, an aesthetic augur examines skin in order to customize a course of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing session with Dermalogica products. The treatment leaves skin impeccable, like a recently buffed and oiled slab of marble.
