Some hair can go months without needing a cut, while other 'dos can barely last days. High Effects accommodates those latter locks with its BlownAway package, sessions of shampooing, conditioning, and customized blow-drying held once a week for one month. Adept with any type of men’s, women’s, and children’s hair, High Effects’ stylists can update looks with everything from simple bang trims to intricate bridal updos. For coloring services, they rely on Aveda products, whose sunflower, castor, and jojoba oils help maintain each strand's hue, condition, and shine.
From precision haircuts to ombre color effects, the stylists at Sweet Salon beautify hair with a wide array of techniques. They use only Redken and Matrix color products for high-quality results, changing hues with dip dyes, all-over treatments, and partial lowlights, to name just a few options. Along with haircare, they wax away unwanted fuzz and enhance natural beauty with eyelash extensions and makeup applications.
Pleasure Paradise Salon and Spa’s cosseting confines challenge the common spa tendency to only cater to female patrons by doling out aesthetic services geared toward both genders. Seasoned hairstylists sculpt men’s and women's locks into stylish configurations that mirror trending fashions. Licensed therapists soothe tired muscles with six massage modalities, and facials infused with vitamins and botanicals cleanse skin of blotches stemming from naps in a box of temporary tattoos.
One hour. In the time it takes to watch one prime-time drama, the trained technicians at Pure White Lounge can whiten teeth by up to eight shades. Armed with a hydrogen-peroxide or carbomide-peroxide gel and a safe—yet powerful—LED lamp, the team transforms less-than-white grins into radiant smiles without the cold sterility of a traditional dental office. A rundown of proper aftercare—such as avoiding soda for 24 hours or using only crocheted mouth guards—concludes each treatment, guiding clients to up to two years of whiter and brighter smiles.
20 years have taken master stylist Mida from Paris to Glendale, and she can tell you about it in English, French, or Vietnamese. The shearsmith taps into her Parisian education and her experience managing a bridal boutique in California to beautify each client. Her services run the gamut from basic bang cuts to designer haircuts, weaves, and Japanese thermal straightening. To render those services, Mida calls upon products such as Biomega, Pureology, Enjoy, Aquage, and Matrix. She also uses human hair extension to add length, volume, color, or all of the above for as long as one elephant burp?roughly six weeks. Her salon matches the elegance of outgoing clients with its light orange and cream swirled paint, sheer curtains, and an ornate analog clock.
Redken-trained stylist Jennifer Holden always gives 110%. This means she does more than merely cut her clients' hair??she helps create a one-of-a-kind style tailored to each person's lifestyle and look. This includes giving careful consideration to what's working (or not) with the client's current style and taking into account factors such as how much time the they can give to styling each morning or how often they charter a speedboat to work. Along with cutting and styling, Jennifer also specializes in hair coloring, and has created stunning up-dos for groups preparing for prom, weddings, or fashion shows.
