Natural light floods into Ze Salon, setting the waiting area aglow as guests sift through magazines to find inspiration for their new hairstyles. While sitting in black swivel chairs, clients look into the reflection of an oval-shaped mirror as a stylist cuts, colors, and retextures their tresses. The international salon team, whose members hail from such exotic locals as Brazil, Columbia, and Puerto Rico, makes visitors feel like royalty with pampering facials, makeup application, mani-pedis, and a designated jester who tells knock-knock jokes all day.
If there's one thing owner and stylist Melissa Addison can't stand, it's a poorly installed weave. This professional disdain led to her founding of Cover Girlz Salon, where she and her team of stylists remedy poorly applied chemical processes and traction damage with high-quality sew-in weaves and extensions, trendy designer cuts, and smoothing relaxers. Once new looks have been achieved to their guests' satisfaction, Melissa and the team help them maintain their new look by doling out ample haircare education.
Good communication between the customer and stylist leads to the most flattering haircuts, so the staff at Studio Irma Beauty Treatments keeps the conversation flowing by fluently speaking English, Portuguese, and Spanish. After sussing out their clients' hair preferences, the professionals set about shaping and styling tresses into classic or trendy looks to suit their wishes. Trims are just the beginning—the salon's coloring, conditioning, and texturizing services can work together to add depth and dimension to virtually any style without writing them into a thoughtful screenplay.

Curls are like hair mazes: full of twists and turns and often difficult to navigate. Luckily for the spiral-haired, MLC Salon's stylists have a road map. A sister salon to local barbershop Major League Cuts, MLC specializes in curly manes, with stylists chatting with clients about their hair wants and needs in both Spanish and English. Coifs of all kinds can undergo transformation at the full color bar, and patrons can study their new styles and eyebrow-waggling abilities in full-length, gilt-edged mirrors.
