After stepping into 20 Volume Salon & Spa, the front desk?s river-rock background immediately foreshadows a relaxing day of pampering. At the 2,600-square-foot Aveda Concept establishment, visitors can unload their stresses in the guest lounge or on the outdoor patio before their appointments. Clients look into the large, plum-framed mirrors at each of the salon area?s 11 styling stations, where they can watch as a stylist renovates their hair with precision cuts, classic Aveda scalp treatments, coloring, and updos. Inside 20 Volume?s private treatment areas, patrons achieve a movie star appearance with complexion-balancing Enbrightenment facials, rosemary-mint body wraps, and sparkles meticulously installed into their smiles.
Guided by her passion for hairstyling, Lauren Simpson turned a private suite inside Style de Vida Salon Spa Studios into her own personal coifing station?A Chemical Romance Salon. It's here that she transforms manes with modest or dramatic snips and a rainbow of color services, including creative hues, highlights, and comforting night-lights. Dry or frizzy hair are no match for her deep-conditioning or Brazilian blowout treatments, while ?dos in need of unusual flair latch onto feather extensions or hair bling. Lauren proudly posts the results of her work online, where would-be patrons can assess her skills.
Desere' Mamola helms Avante-Garde Salon, where she shows off her skills in coloring and extensions. During her apprenticeship, Desere' learned to work with every type and texture of hair, and now offers up-to-date haircuts, dynamic color services, and a range of sew-in, clip-ins, and Great Lengths hair extensions. Although she has already mastered the detailed techniques behind her services, Desere' continues to attend hair shows and take classes in order to offer her clients the best the salon industry has to offer. And no matter what the treatment, Desere' takes great pride in ensuring her clients leave the salon with healthy, shiny, and strong hair.
Under the watchful gaze of Spiro and Vera Vatoci, the stylists at Vatoci Hair Studio shape ‘dos with products by Redken and Pureology while abstract mirrors reflect each transformation. Before Spiro gained his 17 years of experience, he was fascinated by the impact a new cut or color could have on a person's self-confidence. Along with Vera, he strives to bring clients' visions to reality by studying innovative techniques and trends. Beyond updating manes, the staffers also strip unwanted fuzz with waxing services and trim beards with the skill of a beard-championship winner competing in the freestyle category.
Cassie Robison is always learning. She first sharpened her skills while a student at the famous Toni & Guy hairdressing academy. Now, armed with a cosmetology license for nearly 10 years, she boasts certifications from L’Oréal Professionnel, DreamHair Keratin Therapy, Redken, and a number of hair-extension brands. At Salon Boutique, Cassie flexes her skills during a variety of services, which include stylish haircuts, bright highlights, smoothing keratin treatments, and hair extensions, which add length and fullness to existing manes, as well as the ability to lasso errant tumbleweeds.
The stylist at The Beauty Venue is a hairstylist master, and she has the certifications to prove it. Certified in hair color and hair straightening, she can revivify styles or achieve all-new looks through a combination of these services, which she matches with a designer cut and style. There's no certification for service, but if there were, she'd have that too; before administering any of her services, she consults with clients to learn about their hair and assess whether they're afraid of mirrors.
