Maria Guasta started cosmetology school in her junior year of high school and earned her license before she even graduated. When she turned 23, she bought Savage Hair International and devised her own training program for the stylists she hired, sculpting manes for Broadway productions and New York Fashion Week in the meantime. Two decades later, this style prodigy turned beauty-industry veteran continues to develop her salon and personally train each of her stylists, equipping them with products by Schwarzkopf and MoroccanOil. In her spare time, she spreads her instructional talents beyond her salon's walls as an educator with the Rusk creative team, teaching other stylists how to forge stylish haircuts without actually lowering their clients' ears.
Ellis Hair Salon makes coloring treatments a priority. Headed by colorist Manisha?who's been styling and coloring hair since 2004?Ellis uses a number of organic products from All-Nutrient Organics. A natural base of vegetable oil and keratin creates new hair colors without a reliance on harsh chemicals or magic markers that smell weird. Additionally, Manisha can keep her clients looking sharp and fashionable by trimming untidy strands or by straightening locks with keratin treatments.
Eyelash extensions. Bridal makeup. Customized facials. Those are just a handful of the services the professionals of Ooh So Pretty Salon and Spa use to make the world a prettier place.

Like an erasable pen, chemical peels help reduce the appearance of fine lines and aestheticians remove unwanted fuzz with body waxing form face to feet.
