He uses his wealth of knowledge to cut, condition, and blow-dry strands into elegant styles. Ricky can also lengthen hair with fusion hair extensions, and his training as a certified color specialist allows him to add pop to locks.
When master stylist Christie Kramer decided to open a hair salon in 1998, her standards for the hair professionals she would to hire were high. Having trained in Europe and the US, she brought with her a wide perspective on hair care and selected her staff based on their specific talents. Today, the stylists at Christie & Co. are most known for their hair coloring skills, from multi-dimensional hues to rich reds and drastic color corrections. Clients can also opt for a full array of hair care services, including Japanese straightening, extensions, and Brazilian blowouts. On the spa side of things, an aesthetician creates soothing moments during facials, massages or nail care.
The stylists at Believe Hair Studio transform hairstyle aspirations into reality by listening closely to their clients' ideas while performing cuts, styles, and coloring treatments. Aside from the typical salon services, the studio's menu makes manes more manageable with smoothing treatments, and prepares clients for momentous occasions with bridal packages, waxing, and makeup services. The salon's environment reflects the staff's fun, upbeat attitude toward hairdo renovation with bright red walls and marble-esque floor tiles.

Nearby, Usha's henna artists use traditional Indian techniques to install intricate designs that are perfect for standing apart from the crowd or blending in with a pile of tea-stained lace. Clients can also take a break from humdrum chores with soothing facials and massages.
