From her styling station at Salon Tiare International Hair Design, stylist Annette Rayfield draws on more than a dozen years of experience to create hairstyles for her clients. Classes in American style capitals including Chicago, New York, and Las Vegas inform her work, which includes specialties such as color treatment and bridal hair designs. Whether straightening out wild frizz or reshaping silhouettes with new cuts, Annette also indulges her artistic side, delivering fashion-forward styles that outwardly express her clients’ personalities.
The Paris Salon team includes hairstylists, makeup artists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. When they combine their various disciplines, the result is a place where getting dolled up means more than relaxing in a pile of dolls. The team members offer everything from haircuts and color to lash extensions and facials. They also rely on products by Bumble and bumble., such as conditioners that keep colors vibrant and styling products that keep tresses in place.
Dannielle Clemens grew up watching her mother and grandmother make others happy through hairstyling, and now she continues the tradition at her Studio DC Salon. In a bright, contemporary space, Clemens and her team of nine stylists—each with specialized training from Vidal Sassoon and ranked by skill level—provide precision cuts, hair-smoothing Keratin Complex treatments, and human-hair extensions affixed with microcylinder, custom hand-tied, and duct-tape techniques.

With its red bricks that lend one wall a rustic feel and its ceiling with glossy, multi-hued wooden beams, the interior of Tiare International Hair Design is breathtaking. But more striking than the salon's aesthetic are the people being made over inside. Jani Nelson uses her well-honed craftsmanship to create expert haircuts on guests. She trims hair for men and women, as well as creating completely new looks with coloring services. Jani also performs deep-conditioning treatments, which are more effective for hydrating and strengthening strands than cocoa butter bath.
