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.
The chefs at Pi on Sunset aren't the master of just one cuisine, but nearly everything in the Mediterranean realm. They blend together classic Lebanese dishes alongside Italian favorites and update them with modern pizazz. Starting at lunch, they fuse the flavors and sauces of Mediterranean cuisines to make meals such as beef shawarma pizza, beef kafta wraps, and falafel with hummus. Their dishes can be eaten in the restaurant or delivered to houses and groups camping out for Rod Stewart tickets.
At Steven Mata Hair, the salon's titular stylist brings years of experience as well as an arsenal of smoothing products from Chi to his haircuts and color treatments. In addition to traditional hair services, Steven dip-dyes strands with ombre highlights, styles hair for special occasions, and blends gray hairs with bits of color to disguise aging and prevent unwanted pickup lines from Frankenstein monsters.
Since training in London and Paris from internationally renowned stylists including Alexandre de Paris, owner Slama Sharon has spread his talents, opening MikiSharon salons in Israel, Chicago, and Los Angeles and working with celebrity clients such as Tyra Banks and Mary Louise Parker. In an hour or less, one of MikiSharon's expert stylists can carve out a new shape for strands with a haircut (a $135 value) before setting freshly trimmed tresses with a blowout (a $49 value). Maintain made-over manes with two additional blowouts, which, like an overbearing mother scalp, will remind 'dos of proper posture.
Celebrity hair stylist Ken Paves, who has snipped the strands of such stars as Jessica Simpson and Eva Longoria, operates a stylish top-to-toe treating salon to keep clients catwalk ready. Each visit begins with a verbal consultation between a skilled stylist and stylee, ensuring that clients achieve a look suited to their personal tastes and style. Opt for a haircut, and a trained trimmer will snip your tresses with the ease of a swan dancing Swan Lake, transforming stressed manes into trendy looks for women ($125+) and men ($90+). Add little rays of sunlight to manes with highlights (partial $150+; full $225+) and get a polished finish with a professional blowout ($75). After nourishing above the neck, treat hardworking hands to a manicure ($45) or pamper market-bound piggies with a pedicure ($55) to leave extremities in top wiggling, waving, and keyboard-typing form.
