During stylist Dominique's more than 15 years of experience, she's soaked up styling trends and techniques in Florida, Colorado, and everywhere between. That's how she's able to help her clients achieve a range of looks, from elegant updos to funky experimental cuts. She creates all of these looks at Styles by Dominique, located in Salon 111, where she colors strands with sun-kissed highlights using Redken products, coils locks with perms, and keeps manes moisturized and healthy with deep-conditioning treatments.
Though it hangs outside a cozy cottage, the fleur-de-lis that dangles over Salon Senoj's entryway hints at the ritzy decor inside. Dark, lacquered hardwoods shine as clients explore the waiting area in front of a brick fireplace or head to a styling chair hidden in the secluded back room. There, staffers soothe strands with Redken, MoroccanOil, and Pureology products before they hand them symbolic pink slips and cut them off. The stylists also specialize in accenting beautiful fringes with nail services and eyelash-extension applications.
The technicians at Clary Sage Salon & Spa do more than simply cut hair. They use their haircuts and coloring treatments as a means to transform their clients’ outer appearances, giving them looks to match their unique personalities. And they do so using the salon’s own brand of products, which they designed specifically to nurture and restore hair that’s thinning, color-treated, or infested by families of birds. The salon also offers relaxing massages and facials, both of which find a welcome place in the transformative process.
Tote a vaporized visage into this relaxation retreat, where a staff of pampering professionals awaits to freshen it back to its prepoked vibrancy. Relax amid the spa's cream-colored walls and verdant potted plants, as the ardent aestheticians begin the half-hour treatment by cleansing the face with a combination of steam and warm towels to unburden pores of dirt and deeply settled sediments. Purged profiles are then rehydrated with help from organic Skintinu products, while gentle massaging strokes aid in the relaxation of your facial muscles and finally cure them of their fear of hands.
The Great Clips empire spans more than 3,000 salons across North America, where a collective of over 30,000 stylists wait, ready to tend to hairstyles.

And to aid their new hairstyles, customers can peruse a line of gels, conditioners, pomades, and tea-tree oil shampoos and body washes.
Fingers are the hands’ workhorses. After years of gripping pencils, traipsing across keyboards, and pointing vociferously at the ghost no one else seems to see, they need a break. That’s where Karlette, a nail technician at b. jolie Salon and Spa, comes in. Sugar scrubs, nourishing masks, and vivid colors of polish stand at the ready as she revives beleaguered appendages. For extra relaxation she calls on her reflexology skills to relieve tension and discomfort from feet. As Karlette battles unruly cuticles, Redken stylists fly past in the chic, welcoming salon, making it easy for her clients to add on a haircut, a set of highlights, or an advanced wig-styling session.
For more than 25 years, medical aesthetician Charlotte Bates’s Clinical Care Skin Solutions and Conquer Zit skincare lines have helped clients banish acne, wrinkles, and other skin problems. The hypoallergenic products, which undergo rigorous clinical testing, contain pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, natural botanicals, and nourishing vitamins. These powerful concoctions provide an alternative to traditional anti-aging treatments, which require encasing the body in amber and waiting out a long fossilization process. The customized facial begins with a skin-determining consultation. Patrons can then relax as the skilled epidermis enchanter massages faces with an anti-aging cleanser and wakes up sleepy skin with a bracing toner and scrub. Finally, skin is soothed and softened with a calming sunshield and moisturizer, and customers are sent home with a jump-start travel kit, which includes an anti-aging cleanser, toner, scrub, sunshield, and moisturizer.
