Jayni Chana realized her passion for beauty at a young age, when she watched in awe as her aunt transformed herself from “just rolled out of bed” to “ready to change the world.” As she grew older, she became known as the go-to beautician among her friends and family and even began practicing advanced techniques such as threading on herself. Jayni went on to gain experience and perspective as a model and beauty professional with a specialty in portfolio photography.
She stores all of this experience inside Jayni's Beauty Box, the spa in which she sculpts bridal hairdos and removes clingy flannel shirts with waxing treatments. Thanks to her early practice, Jayni has also become an expert at threading, a process that uses twisted cotton threads to grip hair and pull it out from the root.
Founded by optician and inventor of the double-flare eyelash extension Jason Carruthers, Zipp Lash specializes in long-lasting extensions.

Salon Mosaic's expert stylists Deana Campanaro and Ivana Maric sculpt the hair of men and women into personalized cuts. In initial consultations, stylists regale customers with follicular knowledge such as proper haircare and available style options. After trimming manes to the client's preferred length, stylists blow hair dry and whip resulting ’dos into the client's desired silhouette, from cumulus clouds to fedora-shaped trompe l'oeil.
The scissor-handed stylists at Duets Hair Studio snip away at the strands on men, women, and kids.

Lasting up to three weeks, bling strands adhere to heads without glue, special tools, or recycled gum. The staff further perfects features by waxing eyebrows, upper lips, and chins.
The staff at Bijou Salon and Spa pampers its clients from head to foot with its menu of hair styling and spa services. In addition to cutting and styling manes, staffers also add polish to nails with spa manicures and pedicures.
