The stylists, colorists, and aestheticians at Monolo Hair Studio render customized hair and skin services, from Schwarzkopf conditioning treatments to feather hair extensions. Stylists rely on products from Chi and American Crew to nourish tresses, whereas their blow-driers shape and set new 'dos and blast away any tiny plastic Barbie blow-driers that were previously stuck in your hair. The attentive technicians also perform men's hot-towel shaves, chip-resistant Shellac mani-pedis, and 30-minute deep pore-cleansing facials, which are performed as caped clients sit upright in styling chairs like dapper superheroes. At the front of the salon, a glass case showcases sparkling jewelry and shelves of beauty products.
Nefertiti embraces natural beauty and helps clients feel confident without the use of harsh chemicals or heated tools. Her haircare services employ pure cleansing ingredients such as apple-cider vinegar, lemon, lavender, and rosemary, plus essential oils to rehydrate strands. Beauty services below the bangs include healing facials, body-waxing treatments, and massages that aim to reduce tension and restore range of motion. Nail services not only spruce up the appearance of nails but also soften skin with natural sea salts and paraffin dips infused with chamomile, lavender, or vanilla.
It takes a long time to braid hair. Knowing this, the team at Oluchi African Hair Braiding cultivates a friendly chair-side manner to make people feel at home, an attitude that dates back to their efforts at building a family of regular customers. And it's natural for people to want to keep coming back: as their hair grows or trends change, they can evolve their looks with the stylists, who are versed in a large—and ever-growing—repertoire of braiding and twisting techniques. The stylists at Oluchi can create anything from traditional cornrows and dreadlocks to Senegalese twists and box braids.
The stylists at Bashamy’s Salon & Spa boast a portfolio of dramatic styles that range from edgy mohawks of tousled curls to sleek, asymmetrical bobs streaked with color. But these 'dos needn’t come at the expense of healthy hair—the staff also treats strands to the deep hydration of silkening Moroccanoil treatments. They can deftly handle natural hair that has never been processed or work to correct years of damage from straightening, extending, or working as Rapunzel’s stunt double.
