The comely lady stylists of Barber Dollz brush up on the latest haircutting trends to ensure both male and female clients receive the most innovative techniques and creative colors when they hit the chair. The stylists—called Dollz—boast a staggering repertoire of haircutting skills and are able to shear up outrageous styles such as leopard spots as well as sexy understated cuts including classic bobs. The Dollz begin a style makeover with a massaging shampoo and conditioning and can enhance gentlemen's appointments with a hot-towel treatment and nape shave. Those opting for color or highlights can have their manes analyzed by stylists to ensure that hair can endure the hue-changing process. Clients receive complimentary beverages during appointments, and they can pass some time before and afterward watching flat-screen TVs on the salon's wraparound couch or playing a game of foosball.
Just because Remix Hair Co. owner Rasheeda Ameera is used to styling celebrities, that doesn't mean she can't handle the day to day concerns of civilian hair. For while the more famous scalps that have graced her chair have often been subjected to photo shoots or runway shows, they're also susceptible to real-world threats such as windy weather or noogie-loving uncles. And so, no matter whose head she holds in her hands, Rasheeda's goal is to augment each and every beautiful hairstyle with texture and blending that holds up to the closest scrutiny. But her expert services don't end there: Remix's staff includes Aveda- and Estee Lauder-trained beauticians, and its menu includes everything from styling, coloring, and texturizing services to mani-pedis and make-up applications.
Nestled at the foot of Hollywood Hills, Salon Desire is home to a crew of skilled stylists, nail technicians, and skincare specialists. Pulling from their experience with Aveda techniques, the stylists renovate hairdos with new looks and colors while customers whirl around in cushy black salon chairs and make rocket-ship noises. Some nail technicians administer basic manicures and pedicures, while others adorn fingers with fast-acting OPI GelColor polish. Elsewhere in the salon, beauticians smooth wrinkled skin with replenishing peels and advanced microdermabrasion facials.
