When hairstylist Shelton Ogle opened his first salon at 21, he quickly realized the secret to maximizing the number of gorgeous haircuts he could render: a well-trained staff. So two years later, he opened his beauty school, Ogle School of Hair, Skin & Nails. Now in its 40th year, the school leverages its accrued experience and knowledge to teach aesthetic arts ranging from skincare to hair coloring. In the school’s salons, students practice on the public, cutting hair into elegant, customized shapes, texturizing strands with relaxers and perms, and highlighting nails with manicures, rather than with rings with built-in strobe lights. A testament to Shelton’s success in building his vision, he was even able to develop a weekly show for PBS about the beauty industry.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.

Pro Tip: I am a very open-minded, well-educated stylist. I am honored to take care of your hair.
Licensed esthetician Alessandra endeavors to make all of her clients feel beautiful, whether she's layering on a facial chemical peel or concentrating on their backs. In fact, her back facials include all of the soothing standards you would find in a spa treatment for your face: steam, an exfoliating scrub, a mask, and moisturizers, as well as extractions, if needed.
Alessandra customizes all of her services to address different conditions—her anti-aging facials reduce the appearance of fine lines, whereas acne facials cleanse pores to fight blemishes. However, clients can also augment their appointment with add-ons, such as a galvanic-electric-current treatment that improves their skin's absorption of PCA Skin products. Alessandra also removes unwanted hair with waxing services.
Claud Barnett knows how easy it is to get lost in the colors of the Matrix. He honed his skills as a master-level colorist for the iconic haircare company before opening his own salon, where he blends his tinting prowess with the talents of a staff of highly trained stylists. Together, they lavish undivided attention on each client as they create custom cuts and paint new life onto locks in the form of foil highlights and specialty color. Tresses can also be tamed with frizz-fighting keratin treatments, which help to mend flyaways and make it easier for scalps to shimmy into tight stocking caps.
