Sonya Fletcher's career started in an unlikely place: her neighbor's scalp. While growing up, Fletcher tended to the hair of neighbors and her own mother, beginning a lifelong love for styling and cosmetology that led her to open Sonya Michelle Hair Spa. Her expertise in braiding, twisting, and weaving keeps her nimble fingers in high demand, but that's not all the salon offers its clients. The service menu also includes moisturizing treatments for curly, kinky, and wavy hair that can be prone to dryness, as well as keratin treatments that imbue locks with smoothness, shine, and the ambition to audition for shampoo commercials. Clients can also come in for color services that can transform looks with vibrant hues.
No matter how beautiful you are, it's hard to feel that way when your hair is thinning, when it is missing in certain areas, or when it simply isn't as long as you want it to be. Vita's Hair Studio's stylists help make women feel beautiful again with nonsurgical hair-replacement treatments?including hair grafting and hairline reconstruction?as well as with glue-less hair extensions and weaves. They use 100% virgin human hair, instead of bundles of string, to create natural looks. They also pamper existing hair with warm nourishing oil and organic moisture-replenishing products.
Falling asleep at the spa might be inconvenient during a mani-pedi, but at Marché, it's a normal side-effect of their eyelash extensions. Technicians apply the extensions as part of a natural, full, or extra-full set, lending lashes a more glamorous look for up to two months (with regular touch-ups). The staff's beauty services also include brow waxes, brow tinting, and airbrush makeup applications.
Certain hairstyles look good on certain facial shapes. When a client asks for a haircut you know will be a mismatch for them, how do you handle it?
I suggest a different style that is suitable.
Fashionable hairstyles are constantly changing. How do you keep up-to-date on popular trends?
I go to hair shows, take classes, and watch YouTube.
What's the biggest mistake you see clients make when they style their hair at home?
They use too much heat.
Hair is an important part of a person's appearance, so unwanted hair loss, hair thinning, and hair-texture changes can be surprising and unwelcome developments. That's where Belle Chic Studio Salon steps in. Since 1994, it has outfitted its customers with a variety of wigs and hair extensions. Skin-weft extensions that look and feel natural seamlessly add length and volume to hair. A staffer applies the extension to the scalp with tape?in a process far more effective than applying it with sticky bubblegum. For micro-ring extensions, on the other hand, a hair-loss expert uses MicroLinks to attach the extension to the client's natural hair, for results that last for up to five months. Toupees are also available; staffers can attach a toupee to as few as five existing strands of hair.
People who already have a full head of hair but want to make it longer and smoother can undergo a keratin hair-straightening process. This treatment is suitable for any ethnicity or race and works on all types of curls. Clients decide how straight they want their hair to become.
Because hair loss can be a sensitive issue, Belle Chic maintains private, off-the-street parking and private styling rooms. Women can request an image consultant, and all customers receive confidential services.
