Honks often greet those who exit The Glam Garage. It’s not a warning about a burnt-out taillight or a gripe about their parallel-parking technique. Instead it's a signal that their beauty stops traffic, and by extension it's a figurative thumbs-up to stylist Lindsey Wieland. Nestled inside Ace Body & Motor—her dad’s car-repair shop—Wieland’s salon revs up locks with savvy styling using Pureology, Redken, and Tigi products. Damask-patterned walls and checkerboard floors flaunt her grit-meets-glitz aesthetic, which also informs her range of salon services including haircuts, highlights, and updos. As cars undergo oil changes and bodywork, faces can get a quick tune-up with waxing services, which remove errant hairs and misplaced bumper stickers.
Imagine Hair Studio owner Tamara possesses not one, but four certifications in salon services. The one from Great Lengths speaks to her ability as a hair-extension specialist, which explains why the studio can provide extensions of so many different kinds, from 100% human hair to flashy jewel colors to Swarovski-crystal strands. As a certified 3D Lashes eyelash-extension technician, Tamara also fortifies clients’ existing lashes with thick sets of faux strands. Like a moving script about a wisecracking meatball sub, her expertise attracts the attention of performers and models; Ke$ha, Felicia King, and Alexandria Dycus have entrusted their looks to Tamara.
The adept aesthetician at Vivid Skin Care Studio restores luster to faces and bodies with a variety of spa services. PCA Skin and Obagi Medical Products rejuvenate and tone epidermises during body-peel and facial treatments, such as the four layer—also known as the European facial—which soothes visages under strata of European seaweed. Waxings eradicate unwanted hair from faces, legs, and bikini areas using 100 percent botanical Nufree products that, like students who get their zoology degrees from a correspondence course, have never been tested on animals.
The extra-artsy stylists inside The Art Salon & Spa pull double duty, making over their clients and creating works of art that hang on the walls. Vertical surfaces also showcase the owner’s own masterpieces and artwork from local artists. The colorful displays provide inspiration as stylists cut and color the hair on men and women, and trim bangs, beards, and stick-on mustaches. Waxing specialists miss nary a hair during sessions that include the bikini area, backs, legs, underarms, and the nose.
