The hairstyling skills of salon stalwarts Michele Saenz and Nate Siam outshine the brightest chandelier in the spacious Vizion Hair Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus salon. With a keen eye for style, an always-open ear, and scissors for hands, each stylist listens closely to clients’ ideas to help them achieve their hairstyle aspirations. Each visit begins with a personal consultation before stylists snip strands, fight frizz with Japanese straightening treatments, and enliven dulled locks with Paul Mitchell color products. Throughout the coiffure renovation process, the knowledgeable stylists also explain various styling tips, so clients can easily maintain their new looks at home.
Daniel Dimesa is part of the team at Shear Envy Salon that provides edgy looks and rejuvenating haircare. He shears locks into trendy cuts, paints strands with vibrant color, infuses hair with moisturizing deep-conditioning treatments, and smoothes frizz, all with the aid of high-end products from Aveda, Unite, and Brazilian Blowout. In addition to cutting and coloring strands, Daniel can also add length and volume to manes with binded, cylinder, or flat-track hair extensions.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Light from a blown-glass chandelier refracts off gold-framed mirrors and brightens the azure walls of Tiffany Hair Studio & Skin Care, creating a lush setting for high-tech hair and skin therapies. Hair experts protect follicles with low-ammonia hair colors, moisture-rich conditioners, and thickening formulas, and stimulate growth using olive-oil rubs, laser treatments, and an inspirational Jeff Van Gundy slideshow. They also eliminate unwanted body hair with lasers, which can permanently reduce both coarse and fine hair on all types of skin.
The aestheticians further smooth skin with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and a plastic surgeon with 30 years of experience temporarily eradicates wrinkles with cosmetic injectables. A resident nutrition counselor helps balance diets to ensure newly evened-out complexions stay healthy.
All of the luxurious treatments are complemented by hot tea and homemade treats, as well as staffers who sit with clients to offer one-on-one consultations or practice the salon’s secret handshake.
The silver and gilt-edged mirrors of Salon O are pretty enough on their own. However, they're there to serve a purpose—reflecting the stylish hair designs of the salon's skilled stylists and color specialists. Stylists such as Erin Fargo transform manes into works of art with subtle ombre or reverse ombre color, sleek styles and cuts, and Babe hair extensions. They can also offer recommendations to improve the health and beauty of a client's hair, such as brushing it with an apple a day. As guests await appointments, they can sit beneath an elegant chandelier, peruse the salon's extensive selection of products, or ask stylists to regale them with tales of their 2010 Cut-A-Thon, in which the staff raised money for breast cancer research.
