Many twins grow up sharing similarities: they might listen to the same music, enjoy the same foods, or blink at exactly the same time. Moxie Lux owners Jamie and Jenn share a love for cutting and styling 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, Jenn is a Wella-certified colorist, and Jamie is a recognized Motives makeup foundation specialist. Both are certified in La Bella hair and eyelash extensions, and together, they lead Moxie Lux's team of experienced stylists and colorists.
Surrounded by chandeliers, a stone-front fireplace, and colorful walls, stylists trim hair with custom cuts that transform heads into sassy sculptures with Marylin Monroe?style curls or Statue of Liberty?style crowns. For many of these services, they use the salon's house brand of moisturizing and conditioning haircare products. And yet Moxie Salon and Spa's aestheticians don't limit their services to hair: they also perform custom makeup applications using Motives products, luxurious mani-pedis, and waxing treatments for a variety of areas.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Here at Get Twisted, we strive to offer our guests the most relaxing experiences. Most of our guests enjoy the sweet, soothing sound of calm, blissful spa music. Some appreciate the free aromatherapy that we throw in. Or maybe it's the fact that all out massages are performed in a candlelit room.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I, Supreme, the owner of Get Twisted, value good customer service. I started my business back in 2002 and I have no regrets whatsoever. I truly value my guests and I plan on doing this for many years to come.
What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting different people and I enjoy the great conversations we have. I myself am not a masseuse, I just own the business, but whenever a guest leaves my establishment with a smile,
it makes me happy.

After spending 15 years working in the wedding industry, beautifying brides-to-be with personalized makeup and henna tattoos, Pritee Gupta and Leena Dedhia realized their dream: to make their treatments available to a broader client base. So they created Mei Salon, where guests can experience their signature eyebrow threading services while listening to calming music. Their skilled staff crafts dazzling highlights and updos and banishes stress with relaxing hot-oil massages and Ayurvedic facials steeped in ancient traditions. The salon also hosts spa parties for kids and adults, which are ideal for celebrating birthdays, girls' nights out, or a decision not to pursue the Guinness World Record for longest toenails.
Mavida Salon encourages its staff to collaborate artistically with each client to create looks that are both modern and manageable. Its talented stylists, colorists, and makeup artists perform each service at full-length mirrors, allowing them to consider the complete picture while keeping an eye out for pirates. Aside from custom cuts, the intimate, burgundy-walled salon specializes in single- and double-process color and extensions as well as La-Brasiliana hair-smoothing keratin treatments, which counteract frizz for up to four months.
If you're in the market for a new look, look no further than Marijosie Unisex Salon. The salon's stylists and aestheticians team up to complement their clients' natural beauty with a full range of haircuts, manicures, and waxing services. The stylists are particularly adept at matching the right style to each client's face, regardless of whether that client has been blessed with curls, straight locks, or a head infested with snakes. The aestheticians turn their attention to the body itself, beautifying skin with makeup applications, eyelash treatments, and bikini waxes.
