DuVall’s School of Cosmetology epitomizes hands-on education. Though students do spend time in the classroom, most of their training is spent in the 11,900-square-foot school’s salon and spa, where they perform a roster of services on real people under the guidance of their instructors. Cosmetology students shampoo and cut hair, add length with extensions, and add hue with highlights. Students partake of elite training from instructors versed in the Sassoon method, a system honed by Vidal Sassoon himself during his more than 50 years as a top stylist. Meanwhile, aspiring aestheticians perform facials with products crafted by Dermalogica, a skincare brand that is produced without such common skin irritants as artificial colors, fragrances, and puns. Those outside of the training program can also take advantage of the school's pedigree by basking in carefully mastered beauty services performed by students at a fraction of standard salon prices.
True to its name, The Yellow Brick Salon announces itself to the outside world with a distinctive yellow facade. But for all its exterior beauty, it's what's inside that really counts. Here, you'll find seasoned stylists Vonda and Sandra giving their clients custom services that include anything from designer haircuts to vibrant highlights and hydrating conditioning treatments. They precede each appointment with a consultation, during which they evaluate the client's facial shape and get a feel for their personal style. That kind of care helps them create looks that leave their clients happy, but not so happy that they mess up their hair in celebration.
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.

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.
The Face Place’s team of registered nurses and medical aestheticians helps clients with rejuvenating services focused on improving one of our most defining features: the face.

The talent doesn’t stop there as staffers blast the skin with aluminum crystal and suction away dead skin cells and other debris to reveal youthful, clear game boards. They also use their expertise to create custom masks that prevent breakouts and cleanse deep within pores with pumpkin and fruit enzymes to brighten complexions.
