Before Deborah Pufahl opened Hidden Beauty Hair Salon in 2004, she had practiced her craft for 16 years. So, the transition was as easy as melting butter with F-16 jet exhaust. Likewise, to make the transition from an old hairstyle to a new one easy for her clients, Deborah and staff offer complimentary tea and coffee during hair appointments. Her clients' transitions vary. They may leave with highlighted hairdos, locks smoothed with La-Brasiliana keratin treatments, or shortened bangs. Beyond haircutting, coloring, and styling, Deborah administers a slate of more than 10 waxing services.
The stylists at Serenity Hair Lounge are big fans of a fashionable contradiction. Inside their appointed workspace, rustic wood floors and muted, faux-marbled walls provide a chic contrast to the polished hairstyles and vibrant hair colors that parade out the door. To really make manes shine though, stylists can tame unruly frizz with a Brazilian blowout that leaves locks smooth, soft, and less likely to attach itself to dryer sheets.
Oneblowdrybar has decreed that "full of hot air" is no longer an insult: the blow dry bar's menu only has one primary item, and it's the blowout. Of course, there's variety to be found in the treatment, which results in looks named after trendy New York spots. The Soho, for example, leaves waves loose and free, whereas the Lincoln Center incorporates pins and braids for a sophisticated updo.

The stylists at Shockwave Salon share over 40 years of experience as they deftly tend to heads of hair in an airy studio space painted with bright reds and greens. They apply new looks with skilled hands that snip off excess locks, deep condition, or style dos. Additionally, Saturday nights see the salon filled with live music that enhances an atmosphere already packed with posters that pay homage to rock, punk, and jazz musicians.
