For 23 years, Adrienne—owner of Exotic Hair Designs by Adrienne—has trimmed, extended, and shaved hair as both a stylist and a barber. She continues to turn her shears to the hair of men, women, and children, sculpting ladies' hair to fit the latest trends or providing a gentle neck massage after a classic men's cut. With weave and glue, she affixes extensions to hair or eyelashes to create a naturally full look or add color and sparkle to unlikely places. She capably crafts even the most high maintenance styles for clients, including such dos as mohawks and full-neck lions’ manes.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
As the owner of Pretty Hair Design since 2001, Yasmeen ensures that her salon offers familiar day spa indulgences as well as a handful of more intriguing cosmetic procedures. The staff of skincare professionals specializes in using hair threading techniques to fashion shapely and stylish eyebrows, and they beautify clients' skin by applying henna tattoos—intricate, eye-catching designs that are temporary, unlike a full sleeve of Margaret Thatcher's head on a snake body. At the same time, visitors also have the opportunity to pamper themselves by scheduling a skin-firming facial, getting a trendy haircut, or shedding pent-up stress with the help of an aromatherapy massage.
Great Clips harnesses the vast resources of a national salon chain to provide personalized, professional styling services to follicle frolickers near and far. Wild wigs are brought to bear by highly trained hair tamers who also serve as style guides through the often-intimidating tonsorial jungle, answering customers' questions about hair trends and maintenance. A socially responsible company, Great Clips also hosts haircut-a-thons, bake sales, and baked haircut sale-a-thons to benefit charities, including the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and Ronald McDonald House.
It's no surprise that the earth-conscious stylists at Willie & Coote Salon use Aveda products. Aveda relies on botanically based ingredients that have as little an impact on the environment as possible. The eco-friendly brand's shampoos, conditioners, and colors stock the salon's shelves, where stylists select the proper ones for haircuts and coloring treatments. With face-framing cuts and accentuating color in place, the staff applies makeup, tints lashes and brows, and performs hair and eyelash extensions.
