At Artistic Cuts Salon & Spa, a cool blue tile mosaic greets visitors when they approach the desk, scarcely concealing murals of swans and cranes that usher in a feeling of serenity. Beneath hanging lanterns, specialists perform a variety of salon and spa services for men and women. Stylists tame locks with custom haircuts, coloring, perms, and straightening treatments, which can be complemented by other beauty services such as waxing and permanent makeup. Spa technicians also reward bodies with massages, facials, and skin treatments such as microdermabrasion.
Don't be surprised if you notice a natural rapport between the stylists at Stagecraft LLC. Since the salon never rents out chairs to individual contractors, the stylists—all of whom graduated from Paul Mitchell schools—work together as a team while their clients sit back with a glass of wine, soft drink, or coffee. That means they can collaborate, if necessary, to devise a haircut, style, or coloring treatment using Paul Mitchell products.
The experienced stylists at Tina's Salon Hollywood on Main Street transform tresses with customized design cuts and ammonia-free Majimèches highlights. During each appointment, lasting 60–90 minutes, gentle fingers shampoo locks before snipping strands into modern or conservative cuts, according to personal preference and hair's astrological sign. Well-placed Majimèches highlights kiss coifs with ammonia-free color that instills up to five levels of gleams while conditioning to protect strands from shine shock. Finally, a blow-dry and style send heads of hair back into the world ready for tossing, trafficking fingers, and flipping over windowsills to entice climbing princes.
Libelle Organic Salon's owner Connie Scheidegger leads a team of experienced cosmetic professionals as they work together to beautify customers using purely organic products. Armed with Organic Salon Systems products—which are free of ammonia, carcinogens, formaldehydes, and illegal smells—the staff treats clients to expert hair services such as cuts, styles, and coloring for everyday trims or special occasions. They also soothe muscles with massages and exfoliate the epidermis with custom skin care treatments designed for the entire body. Nail and waxing treatments round out the menu of services.
Having a good attitude is easy when you look good, which is the philosophy easily applied to the name of New Attitude Salon. Tucked away in a revamped home originally built in 1923, three seasoned cosmetologists tend to clients' hair and physiques inside the salon's cozy quarters. Though focused mainly on hair—the trio specializes in everything from basic cuts to multi-dimensional highlights that make glass prisms jealous—the salon also carries out services such as spray tanning.
