The Color Palette Salon's savvy stylists beautify tresses at a family-centric salon and take pride in explaining the products they use. While color is their passion, stylists also deliver fresh cuts and conditioning treatments. Extensions and texture services add a new dimension to hair, just as magical wardrobes add a new dimension to the lives of British schoolchildren. Along with hair services, staffers also perform waxing services and makeup applications.
Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
A full-service salon, Salon Tre’dici offers a variety of hair, nail, massage, and beauty services. Stylists perform haircuts and keratin treatments, deep conditioning, and highlights, and nail technicians tend to fingers and toes. Other treatments include makeup application, facials, and massage therapy.
The certified stylists at Lashful frame eyes with mink lashes to achieve looks ranging from elegant to seductive. Their uncanny attention to detail comes in handy during extension applications, when they meticulously attach each artificial lash to a real one to achieve the most natural look possible. Sensitive eyes need not wince in fear, as the adhesive material with which they apply lashes is specially formulated to not perturb the eye with harsh irritants or teasing optical illusions. The stylists also dip natural lashes in a semipermanent tint that—much like the extensions—gives eyes the glamorous look of freshly applied mascara.
Karma Organic Spa is an earth-friendly online store stocked with a full line of organic nailcare, skincare and bodycare products. Give nails a glamorous coat of “Oh, Tiff!” teal polish ($9.99), then, buff it away with soy-based nail polish remover, which was an Allure magazine Editors' Choice. Or, order Karma Organic Lotion ($16) (available in cucumber-and-mint, eucalyptus, geranium, peppermint, and lavender) to smoothify and slickify hands in preparation for retrieving keys lost at the bottom of a Pringles can.
Many twins grow up sharing similar interests: they might listen to the same music, favor the same foods, or blink at exactly the same time. Jamie and Jenn love to cut and style hair. In high school, they trained together under the Paul Mitchell curriculum, and then launched their careers immediately after graduation—testing their skills in the salons of Los Angeles and New York. Today, they still work together as the notoriously lively co-owners of Moxie Blow Dry Bar. Both are certified in La Bella hair and eyelash extensions. Jenn is a Wella-certified colorist, while Jamie is a recognized Motives makeup foundation specialist. Together, they lead a team of experienced stylists and colorists.
Surrounded by cream-colored interiors accented with earth-toned furniture and wood-framed mirrors, stylists trim hair with custom cuts and transform heads into sassy sculptures with Marilyn Monroe–style curlers or Statue of Liberty–style bronze crowns. For many of these services, they use the salon's house brand of moisturizing and conditioning haircare products. And yet Moxie Blow Dry Bar's aestheticians don't limit their services to hair: they also bronze clients' skin with organic airbrush tanning and perform custom makeup applications using Motives products.
