Under the high ceilings and modern angles of their Kirkland boutique, Winslow Salon's team of mane-tamers soothes and shapes locks into couture coifs with services for both men and women. Shape up feminine foreheads with a personally styled women's cut ($50+), or go for an all-over double process blond bleaching ($90+) to one-up the sun's perky personality. Masculine melons can opt for Winslow's men's cut ($40+), a scissor showdown that leaves gentlemen ready for gator wrestling, pickle jar opening, and single tear shedding during Lassie viewings.
According to a recent report by market-research firm IBISWorld, there are roughly 1.2 million hair-and-nail salons in the United States. It's all the more impressive then that Sozo Hair Studio was ranked one of the top 425 salons by popular mag 425 magazine. Expert stylist Liz Fraine is no small part of this fete. Liz is always on the fringe of the latest fringe, employing high-end brands such as Redken and American Crew to transform bland strands. Sozo's guests also may solicit her waxing know-how to clear away unwanted hair from eyebrows or a beloved bowling ball.
