Inside a salon painted in vibrant purple and blue hues, stylists help clients hone their style with Matrix and Bed Head products and a menu of hair-centric treatments. Uniquely shaped mirrors allow patrons to lecture mirror-selves on strict salon-cape dress codes, while stylists revamp manes using scissors, expertly blended color, and texturizing treatments. Salon Flow’s lobby stocks its retail section with a variety of unique jewelry from Manuela’s Creations, allowing patrons to accent new ‘dos with the glow of knowing 25% of the proceeds go to St. Jude’s Hospital.

Ceiling spotlights hang overhead like a constellation, casting a honey glow on cozy leather salon chairs. At Rave Hair Salon, stylists Heather and Susan begin each service with a consultation before transforming tresses with edgy lines or classic looks. Guests can seek flattering layers to accentuate their features or bold highlights to add dimension.
Co-owners Wadiya Adger and Georgina Weston, along with hair-design and color specialist Candace Aloi, pamper clients with personable salon services for all hair and skin types. Leaning on their extensive beautifying experience, the trio deftly delivers highlights and cornrows along with less hirsute pursuits, such as waxing, body scrubs, mani-pedis, and anti-aging facials. Slinging handpicked products by Redken, Pureology, and Aveda, the trio of beautifiers sets to work, revamping styles for everything from a night out on the town to a quiet date watching a film about a night out on the town. Not content to only focus on hair, the professional prettifiers soothe clients with spa treatments, such as a hydrating body wrap or peeper-enhancing eyelash extensions.
Robin Dove Hair Studio’s color and style team consider hair their main artistic medium, sculpting beautiful looks for everyday clients and the high-profile mugs of local celebrities and news reporters. An educator for J Beverly Hills Salon, owner Robin Dove is experienced with hair of all textures and continually enlists in training to keep abreast of the haircare industry's latest trends and grooviest new ideas about running with scissors. These training sessions enable her to pass knowledge on to her staff, which can handle anything from basic haircuts and updos to extensions, weaves, and formaldehyde-free keratin straightening treatments. The studio’s stylists create a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere as they pour complimentary coffee for clients visiting early in the day and arm afternoon guests with glasses of wine.
Sports fans and '80s pop lovers may already be familiar with the work of Xquisite Hair Design owner Robert O’Donnell. In his 31 years as a licensed stylist, he’s served such clients as Belinda Carlisle of The Go-Go’s and Dick Vermiel, the former head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. He's something of a leader himself; his team consists of stylists for every type of hair. Together their services include cuts, colors, conditioning, perms, and even such hair designs as cornrows and spikes that spell out "howdy, fellow backgammon enthusiasts." The staff also lengthens hair by bonding, capping, or sewing in hair weaves and uses products from Paul Mitchell and Moroccanoil throughout their services.
