Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 2,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Those looking to amp up their aesthetic moxie can enlist in a variety of services such as weight loss treatments, spray tanning, lash extensions, and Lipo Plex. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
When it comes to hair color, Travis Evans is a perfectionist. One of her specialties is color correction—a procedure that evens out and adjusts the tone of hair dye so that it better suits the client's tastes. She also meticulously applies highlights, which enliven 'dos with complementary shades and shadows.
However, she takes just as much joy in crafting a completely new look as she does in tweaking different hues. Her extensions add voluminous length, Brazilian blowouts tame frizz, and special-occasion updos prep hair for fancy events. In addition to her styling services, she also waxes brows, lips, chins, and sideburns.
For some people, a treat is a donut and a warm latte; for others, it is a new haircut. At La Petite Salon, those indulgences are just a door apart. Professional hairstylist Fadia Saadi performs a wide variety of services in her salon, which is connected to the La Petite Market café and bakery. There, she transforms frizzy 'dos with keratin treatments, adds dimension with highlights, and uses a simple cotton thread to pluck unwanted hairs.
The seasoned stylists at Yolanda's Hair Studio make over hair from roots to tips with high-fashion cuts and other hair services for men and women. A thorough sudsing scrubs away oils and other nonrenewable resources, reviving hair's natural bounce and swing before stylists trim ends and shape layers into a face-framing mane. Tress-tamers may also add hues to hewn 'dos with a choice of single-process color or highlights and lowlights, resaturating pesky roots or imparting multi-dimensional shine in eye-catching shades. A blow-dry styling then fixes domes with sharper elegance than a tuxedoed princess.
Calling on at least 10 years of experience each, the stylists at Hair Zone transform looks with an arsenal of creative beauty tools. Beyond precision haircuts, they imbue stunning color with Schwarzkopf products, including the Igora Color10 line that can cover gray hairs in just 10 minutes. For even bolder styles, they affix custom hair extensions to natural locks, harnessing subtle shades to blend in with the original hair or funky hues to create the effects of highlights without using dye or hiding inside a child's coloring book. The stylists can even enhance texture with frizz-boosting Brazilian blowouts, and boost luster with moisturizing shine-enhancer treatments. Amid its sunshine-yellow walls and glossy wood floors, Hair Zone lines its shelves with Nexxus Organics, Shiva, and CHI products.
Within the confines of Alex Burton Salons, Christina trims, teases, and styles tresses. She has been in the salon industry for more than three decades and specializes in color correction treatments that hide the evidence of dye-job mishaps or highlights that attract lovesick zebras. Christina also adds volume and bounce to hair, or "cheveux" in French, with perms or smoothes out frizz with straightening treatments.
