The stylists at Vita Dulce by Celia tweak and transform hairstyles with beauty products by top brands such as Paul Mitchell, Redken, Aquage, and Kenra. Partial highlights add dimension to ‘dos, and perms make hair curl the way scary dreams or poorly designed rollerblades make toes curl. Hair caretakers cut the locks of both men and women, and they also tame children’s floppy mop tops. Earth-toned floors and walls surround the salon's front desk and private service rooms, which feature padded styling chairs and full-body mirrors that allow clients to monitor their heels for hot-foot pranks.
At The Atascocita Barbershop, barbers help men look their best with classic, timeless haircuts and fresher, more modern looks. The staff chisels away at whiskers with old-school shaves and hot-towel wraps, leaving faces clean and smooth to the touch. They skillfully shape hairstyles into elegant flat tops, fades, and tapers with the same adeptness they use to sculpt mohawks. Complimentary shoulder and neck massages can ease the tension of seeing your fallen hair spell out “Why?” along the barbershop floor.
The attentive aestheticians at Gatsby's Hair Studio rejuvenate visages with indulgent facials and microdermabrasion treatments in a serene spa setting. During the one-hour signature facial, a skincare guru employs A-Cute Derm products to purge pores of impurities, shedding dead cells and refinishing façades with a glow as healthy and radiant as a light bulb powered by spinach. The accompanying microdermabrasion gently sloughs barren skinscapes to unveil a smoother façade and minimize the appearance of fine lines and sun damage.
Tresses are kept trimmed, tinted, and textured with an arsenal of services at Bella Sorella Salon. Give locks weary from endless growth spurts a much-deserved break with a customized haircut ($20–$35), and tack on a blow-dry and style to ease hydrophobic shoulders ($45). All-over single process color saturates headmops with a new hue ($70), while a few face-framing highlights can bring out the color of braces’s rubber bands ($5 per foil). Conspicuous curls blend in at dry-spaghetti dance parties after a relaxer, and straight strands befriend bouncier brethren after a perm (each $75+).
It's one thing to tuck a flower behind your ear as a cute accessory for a midday walk—it's another to have a flower as an updo centerpiece that stays pinned throughout an entire wedding and reception. That demands the attention of a professional, and licensed cosmetologist Kaleigh is happy to oblige. She travels to her clients for hair and airbrush-makeup services, composing glamorous looks for events. She arranges hair into elegant spirals or lets strands hang in alluring waves, and she applies makeup to accentuate each person's natural beauty with expert highlighting and color. These looks have seen soirees such as proms, quinceañeras, and homecoming dances, in addition to wedding ceremonies and nights out on the town.
The stylists at Milan’s Hair Studio pride themselves on their talent and versatility. With a finely honed eye for personal style and a willingness to stray from the cookie-cutter mold, they fashion haircuts for clients of all ethnicities and hair types, embellishing each client’s features. Their ears do the listening as their hands do the work. Depending on the client's wishes, they customize coloring schemes that range from natural hues to dramatic tones. And on top of cutting and coloring, the stylists offer relaxers, fasten extensions, and apply keratin treatments that add a smooth, shiny luster to hairdos and bungee cords.
