Dedicated to improving and maintaining hair integrity, the professionals at Kimarge Salon carefully select products from brands such as Kevin Murphy, Label.M, and Joico to perform an array of specialized coloring and defrizzing treatments. To complete aesthetic renovation, the salons also offer haircuts, makeup sessions, and bridal updos. Prior to each treatment, the hair horticulturalists meet with clients during in-depth image consultations to discuss personal styling needs and concerns. Stylists conjure designs that work with each person's routines and best features, such as bone structure, skin tone, wardrobe, and spirit animal.
Hectors Salon#2 owner Rosy Mendoza draws upon 20 years of styling experience to lead her international team of master stylists and color technicians in enhancing hair and beautifying appearances. The Redken salon beckons clients into its plush styling chairs for fashion overhauls via the personalized artistry of precision haircuts, styling, and botanical treatments. Certified colorists add depth, shine, and forest camouflage to hair, and professional makeup artists highlight clients' unique features with cosmetic applications and dole out makeup lessons to bolster morning beauty routines.
The skilled stylists at Fantastic Sams turn their deftly handled shears not only to the hair atop patrons' heads, but also to unruly facial hair, performing beard and mustache trims. Other services include facial waxing, color and texture treatments, and updos for formal events.
Since opening its doors in 1984, Ma Maison De Beaute has devised a bevy of healing skin treatments designed to mend dermal issues both minor and severe. Eggshell-colored walls, furniture, and décor, illuminated by a sparkling chandelier and candlelit fireplace forge a luxurious atmosphere for spa services that range from relaxing pedicures to Velashape laser cellulite treatments, which use infrared light to recontour golf-ball-dimpled bodily surfaces to more closely resemble their smooth-talking ping-pong cousins. An expansive selection of skin products helps staffers tailor the six flavors of facial to suit each client's skin type, whereas artful waxing services remove unwanted fuzz and sculpt contoured, tidy brows.
Now a celebrity makeup artist, Amanda Jacobellis started out by studying art and fashion design. This member of the television, film, and print industries often appears on channels such as E! and Fox. She's also been a guest on Access Hollywood, a show that explores the lives of famous people by looking at their keychains. But before she rubbed elbows with the stars, she pioneered a safer eyelash extension technique known as LAshX. Her product includes the first oil- and glycol-free cleanser and formaldehyde-free adhesive. In 2007, she opened Makeup Mandy where her lash extension system enhances beauty treatments from makeup applications to up-dos and waxing.
Sleek and stylish, Chroma Studio's interior is bathed in the bright sunlight that filters in from large windows. Hardwood floors glimmer beneath exotic potted plants that book-end a row of chrome and leather chairs, where stylists work diligently to snip, color, and deep-condition hair. Helmed by master stylist Troy Zestos—who has done hair in TV and films such as Bridesmaids, The O.C., and I Love You, Man—Chroma Studio's staffers use top-of-the line products to assure locks walk out the door looking shinier and more kempt than a brass-plated wig from the collection of Emily Post.
