As a second-generation hairstylist, Chardai has been immersed in salon culture since she was a young girl. She may have picked up tricks of the trade from her mom, but she also integrated her own love of art and color into her repertoire, resulting in her passion for hair design. At Chardai’s Hair, her talents and vision come alive.
Every service, from straightening systems to demi-coloring to haircuts, bear the signature of the salon’s mission: to help clients reinvent themselves with glamorous new hairstyles. The stylists also offers select treatments designed to target specific problems. For instance, hot-towel treatments work to make dull hair shine, reconstructing treatments strengthen hair, and light-therapy treatments address hair loss, acting as a light-house beam to guide missing strands back home.
Chardai has also put her talents to work in supporting charitable organizations such as Feed the Hungry and Cut it Out, and has styled locks at fashion shows that have benefited the less fortunate.
Minimalist flourishes paint a robust picture. A vintage Marilyn Monroe photograph hangs above the salon?s cozy perm armchair, which looks more like a bourgeois armchair plucked from the Victorian era. Amid these elegant trappings inside Salon Boutique, Pretty Cut & Dry owner Ashley Millard and her skilled stylists craft scissors cuts and mold tresses with Emmediciotto products. Ashley?s team can refresh strands with a deep-conditioning treatment or vanquish unwanted fuzz from upper lips and brow outskirts with a waxing session. They can also perform makeup sessions for an upcoming wedding to make the bride sparkle, a birthday to render smiles their most beautiful, or a climb up Mt. Everest to add a layer of protection against frostbite.
At Salon Milano and Spa, plant-based Aveda products lend customized aromatherapy and natural nutrients to salon and spa services. The products' holistic focus matches the manner in which the staff conducts spa services: in addition to explaining the purpose of each step in the facial or massage, therapists also guide clients through stress-relieving visualization exercises to calm the mind. All treatments are customized, from the aromatherapy of a massage to the angle of the cut performed by senior or new-talent stylists in the salon. Tuscan Sanctuary is open late on weekdays to accommodate busy schedules and UV rays that, like Napoleon and his chef after saying they preferred English bread to baguettes, are exiled.
D'Amantes Salon prides itself on being a playful place with creative artists. In fact, the stylists and nail technicians regularly deem a day to be Hawaiian Saturday, '80s day, or red, white, and blue day.
Armed with PCA and Rhonda Alison products, they return youthful glows with a variety of facial services, such as anti-aging peels, Jessner lotus peels, or the brilliance-restoring Red Carpet facial. Their acne treatments work to clear unsightly blemishes, and dermaplaning aims to reveal smoother skin by exfoliating away dead skin cells and unwanted peach fuzz. Refreshing hydration rejuvenation treatments and scar-and-wrinkle-fighting Dermapen microneedling sessions round out the roster of services.
For the past 14 years, salon owner Milla Yagudayev has built up a beauty team of certified nail techs, cosmeticians, and hair artists?including her own daughter, who has worked alongside her since childhood. Together, the staff elevates the condition of scalps and bodies to their pinnacle of beauty with highlights, eyebrow threading, facials, and haircuts for the whole family. Stylists prepare clients for important milestones with wedding and quincea?era updos and makeovers, or treat guests to meticulous, all-over waxing, optionally removing hair in the shape of important computer passwords.
The staff at All Styles are experts in all methods of pampering. Stylists perform all manner of hair services from cuts to perms to coloring. Along with haircare, stylists also remove unwanted hair from brows, chins, lips, and the face by deftly applying wax.
