Jump Jive & Wail Salon owner Diane Bevan has carefully assembled a team of highly trained beauty experts, including a graduate of the Paul Mitchell Academy and certified specialists in Global Keratin's taming system and non-damaging Klix hair extensions. The salon focuses solely on hair and waxing services, excelling in custom color and always going the extra mile to make guests' visits pleasant ones. Its cheery, pink-topped styling chairs make the perfect resting place for customers to enjoy complimentary wine or beer, and stylists take great pride in getting to know each client by their first name and its Klingon equivalent. The positive, customer-service-oriented vibe earned the salon recognition in D Magazine, which named it a top salon in both 2008 and 2009.
Surrounded by teal and pink furnishings and vintage salon posters, sisters Tiffany Edwards and Trenette James style hair for every occasion. The team colors manes with Wella products, transforms unruly hairdos with children's cuts, and creates elegant hairstyles for brides and their wedding-day stunt doubles. Each stylist also brings her own set of skills to the cutting chair, ranging from Tiffany's experience with weaves and braids to Trenette's skill at fusing and bonding hair extensions. The stylists are always happy to share tips and tricks on how to re-create a new style, and they sell Bed Head products and Paul Mitchell blow-driers to help put these strategies into practice.
Blondie’s Salon's stylists tap into a passion for the latest hair snipping, coloring, and styling techniques. They revamp dull hues with full or partial highlights and improves hair texture with frizz-blocking systems by KeraSmooth. They can also strip away unwanted fuzz and shape brows with warm wax or gussy up faces and downplay third eyes with expert makeup applications.
For evidence of their keen sense of style, one need only take a look at the hairdos of the Plush Beauty Bar staffers themselves?each of whom sport luxurious locks tamed into sleek, fashionable cuts. The highly trained team of stylists and skincare specialists operate out of a turquoise-colored spa, performing a sweeping array of hairstyle, waxing, and tanning services. They smooth skin and reduce imperfections during facials, and oversee innovative body wrap treatments designed to reduce cellulite and detoxify skin. The beauty specialists are particularly skilled when it comes to eyelash extensions, attaching extensions with a water-resilient boding agent so lashes don?t fall off when swimming, showering, or forsaking your better judgment and smelling that clown?s lapel flower anyhow.
Oh-La' Lash's lash technicians add length and lushness to eyelashes with extensions made from single-fiber polyester. They coats tips in a cyanoacrylate adhesive before securing between 30 and 80 artificial strands to indigenous fringe one by one. The extensions are available in myriad lengths, colors, and thicknesses, subtly accentuating winks or making lashes as dramatic as the national anthem at the beginning of an opera performance. Extensions are formulated to persist through sleeping, swimming, and showering for three to six weeks, depending on individual lash-growth cycles, although run-ins with oil can weaken the adhesive. When real lashes drift away naturally, they carry the extensions with them, leaving no need for removal.
For the team at Lone Star Tan & Spa, swimsuit season lasts the entire year. With a friendly disposition, the staff pursues beach-preparedness for clients by rendering a full menu of bronzing and skincare services. UV tanning beds and airbrush spray tans chase away pallors, while waxing treatments whisk unwanted hair from underarms, chests, and bikini borders. Their body wraps dovetail with the mission of aesthetic splendor by helping to promote slimming and detoxification with mineral solutions. To boot, facials both cleanse skin and diminish signs of aging. The stylists on staff add hair to their mix by cutting and coloring hair, creating beach-y looks with highlights or pool-noodle extensions.
