Within a soothing, lush pink-and-purple space, the stylists at Cloud 9 Salon focus their talents on three key areas: hair, nails, and makeup. Multifaceted stylists can elongate locks with extensions, smoothen strands with deep conditioning, or add glazes to hair shaped like a tasty donut. Aside from coating fingers in Shellac gel, nail techs perform more inventive manicures, such as the Caviar, wherein tiny beads are sprinkled atop the still-wet color of your choice. Lastly, makeup artists rejuvenate faces with temporary lashes, decorate eyes with subtle or dramatic makeup, and even teach clients how to create such smoky looks themselves.
Inside this full-service hair and nail salon, a team of stylists uses the latest treatments to update looks. Keratin formulas create smooth, shiny manes that are complemented by trendy cuts and color treatments. Nail technicians, meanwhile, adorn tips with long-lasting gel or airbrushed artwork. All treatments take place amid Salon 141’s elegant decor of twinkling chandeliers, warm wood finishes, and bronzed mirrors.
They call themselves "the Moxie Twins," and Jen and Jamie's combination of beauty, confidence, and expertise make it easy to see why they rocketed to national attention as the stylists in residence on VH1's Why Am I Still Single?!. On the show, the identical duo would team up to perform five-minute whirlwind makeovers that proved to be the best way to look amazing quickly, apart from getting shot with a glitter cannon.
Now that they've moved on from their televised career, they're focusing on their multiple style sanctuaries. At their Moxie Blow Dry Bars, teams of expert stylists, colorists, and makeup artists perform their own makeovers that transform men and women from all walks of life.
The stylists at Gisela's Beauty Center & Spa create fresh, modern looks with hair and makeup services. Their haircuts, color, and styles reinvent old dos or refine pre-existing styles. The center also staffs makeup artists who help emphasize clients' facial features and create looks that ties faces and coifs together. Clients can stop by for a simple trim or a complete makeover, or to prepare for a big night, such as a prom or a reunion of the class of '89's prom chaperones.
Cocktail glasses clink as stylists Jennifer Turrin and her husband Antoine work. These Thursday salon happy hours represent the jovial vibe that the couple curates in Antoine’s Salon. The hospitality continues when the stylists accompany their men’s, women’s, and children’s hairstyling services with extras including robes, snacks, beverages, and all the oxygen you can breathe, within reason. The stylists also provide styling tips so that clients can maintain their results at home.
Many twins grow up sharing similar interests: they might listen to the same music, favor the same foods, or blink at exactly the same time. Jamie and Jenn love to cut and style 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, they still work together as the notoriously lively co-owners of Moxie Salon. Both are certified in La Bella hair and eyelash extensions. Jenn is a Wella-certified colorist, while Jamie is a recognized Motives makeup foundation specialist. Together, they lead a team of experienced stylists and colorists.
Surrounded by cream-colored interiors accented with earth-toned furniture and wood-framed mirrors, stylists trim hair with custom cuts and transform heads into sassy sculptures with Marylin Monroe?style curlers or Statue of Liberty?style bronze crowns. For many of these services, they use the salon's house brand of moisturizing and conditioning haircare products. And yet Moxie Salon's aestheticians don't limit their services to hair: they also bronze clients' skin with organic airbrush tanning and perform custom makeup applications using Motives products.
