Master stylist Tomika Gordon began her career as a styling educator for Hype World Int. and catapulted herself into the beauty industry, eventually being featured in the pages of Xtreme Hairstyles Magazine. At Salon Lofts, the 20-year veteran gives hairdos professional overhauls with sleek haircuts, coloring services, and treatments such as perms and extensions. She also specializes in eyelash services, and preps brides, prom-goers, and decorative cacti for their big days with special-event hairstyling.
Owner Melissa Gilbert helms a professional staff of trained stylists that crafts new hairstyles, revitalizes hair color, and removes unwanted facial fuzz with waxing treatments. Each service begins with a consultation, during which the stylist can assess each client?s cut and make recommendations based on hair and skin type, condition of strands, and the color of their foulmouthed parrot sidekick. Aiding in complete care is the studio's stock of products from popular brands such as Redken, Entity Beauty, and Glow Therapeutic. Studio M accommodates all species of hair, as stylists are trained to deal with all hair types, including long, curly, and invisible.
Studio M?s aestheticians are also trained to deal with all types of skin. They reduce the affects of aging, including hyperpigmentation and fine lines, with vitamin C facials, and they target acne and clogged pores with purifying deep pore facials that rely on a medicated treatment and amino mask. The skin savants even custom blend their facials to tackle a client?s specific skincare needs. In addition to cosseting faces during facials, the aestheticians pamper hands, arms, and feet with massages using heated mitts still warm after extracting a pie from the oven.
Skilled hairstylists masterfully renew locks at [NV] Salon, creating chic and elegant styles that mirror the sophistication of the space's dark wooden floors and airy peach-hued walls. A smiling receptionist greets guests entering the salon, leading them to a comfortable leather couch to enjoy coffee or wine or to take in a hit of pure oxygen from the thriving plants decorating the space. Plentiful sunlight filters through large windows in the styling arena, where stylists get down to work, snipping off split ends, glazing strands with highlights, and altering tired textures with relaxers and perms. Inside the private spa rooms, skin specialists wax away unwanted hair and revamp features with expert makeup applications.
Hope Hair Spa's stylists get folks back on their game with a full array of haircare services. Along with cuts, color, and styles, the pampering extends to hands and feet. Gel manicures keep nails chip-free and polished for weeks on end, but the crown-jewel in the spa's nail care line is the waterless pedicure. In addition to pamper feet without risking upsetting Poseidon, the process cuts down on waste by using steamed towels wrapped around the feet. Once feet are feeling soft and refreshed, the nail specialist shapes nails and cuticles, exfoliates with a sugar scrub, and massages feet before applying nail polish.
