Beautifying people is in Gisel Campbell's blood. The aesthetician is the daughter of a hairstylist and the niece of a nail technician, but she didn?t grow up wanting to pursue cosmetology and skincare. It wasn?t until she reached her 20s and began experimenting with her own makeup regimen that she came to love sharing her skills with other people. In addition to an aesthetician?s license, Gisel's extensive training includes certification in microdermabrasion, applying chemical peels, and facial waxing, which she performs at her space inside Salon Ventures and during gorilla wax-a-thons for charity.

Libby Mastbaum, stylist at Salon Ventures, specializes in making men, women, and kids look their best. For the men and children, she snips out dapper or mussed styles. When it comes to women, she pulls out all the styling stops with a slew of services, including giving hair a sleek shine with a flat-iron style session. For longer-lasting make-overs, she performs color services, particularly all-over highlights, which give hair more depth and dimension than a Stargate at the deep end of the public swimming pool.

The skills needed to cut and style natural hair differ from those needed to cut other hair. That’s why the stylists at TK's Styles, Waxing, and Nails specialize in working with natural hair, offering cutting and coloring treatments customized to Asian, Latin, or African hair. Alongside their hair treatments, the stylists offer waxing and nail-grooming treatments that complete grooming packages with a shiny conclusion but without involving lamination.

Q&A with Mandi Darding

When and how did you first realize you wanted to be involved in hair styling?

In high school, I always did friends and [my own] hair for prom and homecomings. I realized I was talented and creative at doing hair, and decided that I wanted to pursue this as a career. I went to beauty school as soon as I graduated and have been doing ever since. And [I] love it.

What's the number one grooming tip every person should know?

Shampooing every day can really dry out you're hair and scalp, and make your haircolor fade really fast. Shampooing every other day helps keep natural oils in as [well as] keeping your color fresh.

What other services do you offer besides haircuts?

Waxing, coloring, ombres, and [my] newest feature is keratin treatments.

The sounds of snipping shears and lively chatter fill the interior of Utopia Salon & Day Spa, a full-service beauty emporium where professional stylists twirl around salon chairs as they cut and color hair to match the unique personalities of their clients. Among these stylists is Ali, whose wealth of experience finds a worthy outlet in her comprehensive repertoire of treatments. Ali’s highlights and coloring treatments infuse hair with the most common shades of summer, from the rippling yellows of a sunset to the vivid pinks of a sunburn. When she isn’t cutting and coloring hair, she adds texture and shine to strands with frizz-busting keratin smoothing treatments.
