Stylist Toni Hunt knows that no two heads of hair are exactly alike. And so, before taking out her scissors, she takes the time to carefully consult with each client about their hair and lifestyle to ensure they get the most appropriate cut or the styling treatment that will deliver the best results. Beyond being well versed in styles and color services ranging from classic to avant-garde, Toni offers several different types of smoothing treatments, including the Brazilian keratin formula and BioIonic Kera Smooth. But the choices don't stop there. She can also add extra length using two different extension methods: wefted extensions use a no-braid, no-glue process to secure hair for 6–8 weeks, while strand-by-strand extensions which last 3–5 months are a better choice for those in search of styling versatility, or those who like to get to know each new hair on a first-name basis.
After years of working at other salons, stylist Lisa Mayo Wilfong decided to venture out on her own, and opened Cutting Image Salon in New York?s East Village. To her delight, the three-chair salon earned tons of positive press in New York Magazine, Beauty News NYC, and the coloring book of her niece. So in 2007, she and her husband Stephen introduced the brand to North Carolina markets. The concept?high-fashion services at reasonable prices?was a big hit and led to the salon?s new slogan, ?NYC Style at NC Prices.? Today, the L?Oreal Professionnel salon operates out of three North Carolina locations. Junior, senior, and master stylists offer haircuts, coloring treatments, and chemical relaxers, all backed by a satisfaction guarantee.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
From the moment you walk into Lenox Salons and make your way back to Pin Me Pretty; my personal Salon Suite, you will enjoy a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. I pride myself in treating each client as they are a guest in my house.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been in the industry for over 7 years and have worked in a salon with 24 girls to a salon with only 6 girls. I was at the point in my career where I wanted to be able to give my guests 100% of my attention and this is exactly how I can do that.
What do you love most about your job?
I do not see this as a job, its my escape. I wake up in the morning excited to go and see my clients. I love seeing the look on my clients face as I turn the chair and see their hair for the first time. I can not explain the feeling that gives me.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I did a hair color, cut, and style and after all was said and done, I turned her around to let her see herself, and she started to tear up. I will never forget it, her exact words, "I don't remember the last time I saw me like this, beautiful"
Dr. Briggs E. Cook Jr.'s prestigious resume includes a medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, a residency in ophthalmology at the Mayo Clinic, and a fellowship in eye and facial cosmetic surgery at the University of Wisconsin. The board-certified ophthalmologist and surgeon has also published numerous professional papers on oculoplastic and cosmetic surgery.
But Dr. Cook's knowledge isn't merely academic, and he puts his surgical skills to use at Pure Facial Plastic Surgery, where he lifts sagging eyelids, reduces undereye bags, and firms necks. He also relies on less invasive procedures to make skin look more youthful, including cosmetic injections and dermal fillers. A consultation with Dr. Cook can help clients determine which procedure is right for them and get a detailed analysis of their dream journal.
